Default Three horns!

My brother in law shot a nice 10 ptr. in our gun season. Upon sighting the deer he noticed something wierd with the "horns". He shot the deer and when he approached the downed deer he found an arrow imbedded straight thru the lower forehead about 1 inch below the eyes. The arrow penetrated thru the lower jaw and into the neck just to the side of the windpipe and 16" of arrow , minus the fletchings and the nock stuck perfectly straight from his forehead.

Some **###@@@ took a very bad straight on shot at this nice buck! It was apparent that the arrow had been there for a little while as the deer had lost quite a bit of weight already. Wish I knew who took the bad shot! A piece of my mind would be available to him!<img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>

That is a shame. I'm glad your brother-in-law got him so he didn't suffer any more. I have heard guys in pro shops saying they will shoot a deer in the head. I used to say something to those guys, but it always turned into an argument with the &quot;head hunter&quot; saying something like &quot;how many horns do you have on your wall.&quot; Once a statement like that is made I know I could have a million deer under my belt and wouldn't make a dent in that guy's ego. It's sad, but they're out there.

Sad for the animal yes, but the one who did that...

Makes me wish I had a &quot;hair-trigger gag reflex&quot; so I could puke on command.<img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>

Shoot often - Hunt always
