Default My first deer!! Was it "Humane"

It was a neck shot (by mistake) and the deer dropped right in his tracks, it was dead in about 5 minutes. My bow shoots arrows pretty hard it should of sliced right threw him but it didnt. The broadhead broke off in the deers neck. Well here he is - his horns are ugly.


Is there a way to scale the image down?

Neet lookin buck


I cant personally say rather or not its humane or not because I know everybody has their own differnt oppinions. I wouldn't ever shoot a deer in the neck in pourpose. But accidents do happen.

How bad of a mistake was the shot?? is ur bow tuned properly? Can you shoot it accurately?? How far was the shot??

I think if you did everything you could to make it a clean and quick kill, then yes it was humane. Somtimes shots do go astray, but it is up to us to make sure we give the animal the respect it deserves and complete the hunt.

I don't see anything wrong with the antlers. Good deer.

congrats on your buck. if thats the only shot you had and couldnt get any other then yeah you did good because your eating venison now. you hit the spine im sure cuz he dropped in his tracks.Me, I would have probally let him walk and let him grow another yr or so. but looks like you got r done, now do him justice and eat em up

In my opinion I would consider it borderline. The reason I say that is it was an accident, at least the deer died. I was curios though did you sit and watch the deer die. If so why didn't you put another shot in him. I am not trying to be judgemental or say anything bad here, i am glad he died but I myself would wan't to put him out of his misery as quickly as i can. Also I have found that the meat taste differently when they don't die quickly, have any of you guys expierienced this before?
