Now say you already have your buck tag filled, but your friend doesnt. Hes out trying for a buck and you are trying for a doe.

The problem is that your friend cannot see the buck, and the only way he could see it is to get on his knees and turn around. But if he does this, that buck would probably high tail it the other direction.

Now youre already in position that you know would be an easy shot.

My question is: Couldnt you aim at the buck with your gun, and tell your friend to reach over and pull the trigger?

After all, Ive heard that the person who pulls the trigger is the killer.
OK, people read and comprehend the OP. The hypothetical has the two hunter seated NEXT TO ONE ANOTHER. The shot could be taken by the turned party.

One question is what is the friend looking for in a buck?

Another is, has it been decided that either party can shoot for the other to fill tags?

Party hunting can be a no win situation, hypothetical or not.

Party hunting is Illegal in Indiana. You are not allowed to shoot a deer and let your friend tag it.

These guys were talking about some way to get around that predicament if the scenario ever happened.


How about killing 2 bucks with 1 shot? badddddd. but the CO can still give you a tag to possess the other one.

Or What if you shoot a deer and it runs across the STATE line into the next state? what then?

What if youre shooting at a deer and just miss high and accidentally hit a bald eagle sitting behind it on a low limb???

What if youre sitting 25 feet up in a tree beside a creek, and a deer walks between you and the creek and you miss BUT accidentally shoot over its back and hit a largemouth bass? Its illegal to shoot sportfish.

:P

Or what happens if you try a shot like that and it hits a kid on his 1st deer hunt and kills him? Sounds like thats a know your ability and whats in the background.

.
1- Don't sit that close together
2- 1 sit facing 1 direction and the other guy on the other side of the tree facing the other direction.

Too many "what if's" for me.

People need to stop trying to find scapegoats to break the law in a very ridiculous way.

Yep the person pulling the trigger is one hundred percent responsible for everything that bullet does till it stops.This goes against all firearms safety practices everywhere, and some hunting Safety and law practices.You've already got your answers from slot of these responses. All are valid and there is more that I won't go into cause there is no need. Stupid idea bottem line.
Most important though I'd worry about this, if that bullet hit or whizzed passed my head both guys, would be dead if I wasn't.
And I know There is more out there that feel the same way I do and would respond in the very same manner as me.

I guess NO ONE on here understood the question. Well, maybe 1 person.
You all seem to think its like a passenger in a car telling a BLINDFOLDED driver where to turn and when to press the gas and brake.
That is not what I meant.

Understand the question.

LETS SAY Im hunting with my friend and we are sitting 1 foot apart. thats 12 inches. Got it?

NOW lets say Im looking for a doe, and he is after a buck.

NOW lets say a buck walks up on MY side of the tree.

My friend has no way of getting a shot.

OK. the part no one seems to get.

I aim at the deer with my gun. IM THE ONE AIMING WITH A CLEAR VIEW.

I tell my friend to lightly squeeze MY trigger while IM AIMING AT THE BOILER ROOM OF THE BUCK.

Can I make it any clearer? Or are all of us hunters too retarded to understand the concept of this question?

Sounds like a situation somebody dreamed up after smoking too much of the wacky weed.

I wouldn't consider it my kill if I didn't aim the rifle.

We hunters are retarded?

Did you think about what your typing before you typed it?

Yeah, your aiming the rifle and ask your friend to pull the trigger.....And?

What the hell do you want us to say?

I would not consider it my hunt if my "friend" did all the work of holding and aiming the rifle and alls I did was simply pull the trigger without even seeing or knowing what the hell you're aiming at.

Could it physically be done?.....Uhhh I would say so.

It it wise or even smart?....Hell no.

Stupid questions get stupid answers, suck it up.
