Default Shooting at running deer?

Any of you guys shoot at running deer? If so, any good tips for me?

I’m not trying to “stir the pot”. This is just a good question for my fellow bow hunters. How far would you have to lead a running deer with a bow? Let say at fifty yards, running at about 20mph?
Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

Do you have a list of controversial topics that you are posting one by one?

With a gun ...Yes. With a bow... NO. A casual walking deer with a bow... Certainly. I've seen too many people on TV spook a deer with their little Mmmaaaaaaaaaaa in an attempt to stop a deer 10 yards away.

If you dont have a GOOD shot dont take it. Why would you try to shoot a running deer? Let him run and hunt him again another day.

Shooting at running deer is not a good idea. It borders on the unethical, IMO.

Shooting at one running 20 mph 50 yards away is both unethical and insane.

I wouldn't shoot at one 10 yards away coming stright at me. Tomorrow is another day.

Ethics, ethics, ethics.

Never shoot at a running deer. Never.

If you honestly were not trying to stir the pot, then you wouldn't be making comments about not trying to stir the pot.
