Anybody who shoots at running or "galloping" deer has no respect for the deer and should be beat in the head with a stupid stick. If you did hit it its more likely to be a wounding shot than anything and you may never recover it. More importantly if its wounded its going to be a long suffering death than a quick kill shot to the vitals. Show some respect for the game your after!

I have killed two deer who were on the move, one was actually running. Can see myself doing it again if given the chance.

I don't need to be beaten with any kind of stick.

Sometimes I worry about what is said on this forum this time of year. I just hope as ethical hunters and stewards of the resource that we make the proper decisions, not only in the field but what we post in the public view.

I can't say that I ever fired at a running deer in the woods but the majority of deer that I harvested were on the run be it in or on the edge of a field or opening. Generally a deer running from an open area will briefly stop before entering the woods. Whatever the case I have never lost an animal and most times they drop when my bullet hits. If the shot can't be made then I pass it up. As far as being hit with a stick LOL.
