Default richochet theory

this may sound kinda wierd cause it did to me when i first heard it i told my hunting friend that i seen a nice buck about 200 yds away way to much brush in the way for a shot. he said i shoulda shot anyway cause the deer couldvve heard the richochet and ran my way wondering if anyone else has heard of this he says this works quite often

Your friend said you should have shot anyway at a buck that did not offer a good shot? Nice friend.

Also good way to wound a beautiful animal.

Your friend probably hasn't been too successful hunting, and doesn't think much

Your friend wanted you to try and make the brush around the deer make noise hopeing it would run to you. Yea it may work, but you may also wound that deer, hit something you cannot see, or even hit a person or someone in the brush. BAD IDEA. Always be sure of your shot.

If you cannot clearly identify the deer, and that deer does not present an elthical shot angle, just pass.

As for the "richochet theory", you are kidding aren't you ?
