Default what would you do concerning megabucks

For the third time in the last five years I had another opportunity to clobber a gargantuan sized nontypical with my car on the way home from work. A few years ago I had to completely stop my car on two different occasions because there was a 245"monster standing in the middle of the road. A young man arrowed that brute the next year and it scored 244". Well today I saw this monster a couple hundreds yards of the road coming on a dead run. I had to completely stop for this Guy.best I could tell he had 30pts or so and score at least in the 230s. He had a double row of tines on both sides with several splits and incredible mass. He had so many points going up it was hard to tell what his main frame was. Looked like a possible7x7. Anyway. What would you have done clobber him or just watch him?

I couldn't do it.
Just think about the adrenaline going through ya with him under your stand, making sure you do everything right to get the shot. Not sure ya could get that feeling by hitting him with your car.
I'm wouldn't look down on anybody that did though, each his own.
Just make sure you have full coverage insurance and your buckled.

I think self preservation reflexes would keep most people from hitting it on purpose.

That's one of the three ways of hunting, stalking, stand hunting, and ..... driving... vrooom vrooom.

Lol, but in all seriousness that would be a hard decision.

i dont think i would purposely hit any deer with a vehicle. but it would be amazing to watch a buck like that so that would definitely be the route i went
