Re: hunter ethics, were have they gone?

Well, from what I have read, it appears as though "Ryan" felt like he did the right thing by recovering someone else's wounded deer. It also appears as though Mike was doing the proper thing by giving the deer time to die, perhaps bleed out from its wounds.

From my perspective, which is basically worthless, I see both sides, but knowing now what occurred, it can be argued that the two hunters should have had a discussion prior to anyone tracking the deer so this situation could have been avoided.

I find it amusing that you didn't tell him your concerns to his face about ethics. Everyone is a tough guy behind a keyboard. Ethics is like religion and politics. Keep your opinions to yourself. Who's to say what's right or wrong.

Re: hunter ethics, were have they gone?

I would of had no problem talkin with him and I did approch him but he had more important things to do. As soon as he seen who it was he high tailed it. But I didn't want to start a fight just sharing a hunt i had a problem. That's all. And 300 ultra if you can tell someone else to keep their oppions to them self maybe you should do the same. Everyone have a happy thanksgiving

Obviously written by a Superior Being!

Instead of approaching the hunter, you used your OBVIOUSLY SUPERIOR intellect and super human ability to read minds. Then realizing that they left it to rot your Spiderman senses kicked in and you came to the rescue! WOW!

As a hunter your ethics are questionable!

Stealing another hunters deer!

INTENTIONALLY moving into their line of fire is not too smart!
You KNEW they were looking for deer in that direction and shooting that way...WHY?

Sorry, you had no business doing what you did without approaching them first!

edge.

PS this is only my opinion, but it is the correct one
Kidding, IMO, IMO, IMO.
