Wouldn't a guy want to wait until they unlock before you shoot one. What the @#$% is the other one going to do now?

Not a big fan of that video. One died because he shot him the other will probably die also. Hmmmm.

Obviously the two bucks were locked together. Both deer could very well have died in a few days had they not interviened here. You don't see the rest of the video, and aren't sure of the other deer's outcome, not sure why everyone is so upset here....

my guess is the camera man has a tag also, I would rather not make the deer suffer.

These deer were obviously locked together. They would have both suffered days this way until dying painfully of exhaustion. One of them was put out of his misery and dispatched quickly. I'm sure the other was taken shortly after, if the hunter was alone he probably notified officials and recieved a permit to kill the other, or may have had a buddy along or nearby with a tag. Killing these bucks was much better than letting them suffer stuck together by their heads.

I sure hope that there was another tag available close by, because that was a risky thing to do otherwise. I would have probably done the same thing, but I know that if there wasn't another tag available, I would have been trying to seperate them, and just think how dangerous that would have been!

The way they were fighting, they obviously just got started. I'm sure this isn't the first time deer became locked while fighting and would more than likely unlocked soon after.

Awaiting the email with the rest of the story.

I had fantasized about that happening to me. What good luck, right? My confusion comes in when I see the bucks struggling and can't get away. No feeling of accomplishment in getting a nice deer anymore. It seems more like a mercy killing. To me anyway.

I likely would have done the same thing since there always seems to be an open buck tag around aside from my own. tongue.gif I just don't think I'd be real proud of it anymore.

maybe they waited until the live buck became exhausted and cut the antlers apart to free the live one.

Even an exhausted deer will still fight to get away if it sees a human coming close, and I think that it would be dangerous for the person to get that close to a struggling animal.

I guess we would have to see the whole video. I watched it again and it looks as though the two deer were not fighting at all, possibly exhausted from being locked together for sometime. Hard to say with only a few seconds of video, but is usually hard to approach two bucks in mid fight and get within 10-15 yards if they weren't exhausted.

Hey guys, I got this same video via email and the file name gave me a bit more info about where it came from. So I did a little research and found the source of the video and pictures. Here is a quote regarding the ultimate fate of those deer...

Quote:

"We couldn't just kill them both because we only had one tag between the two of us. So the plan after killing the one - was to cut the horn off of the other one and release him. We went to get the saw and another hunter with a tag showed up and then he killed the other buck."


Either way, its kinda a sad situation, I'm not sure what I would have done, but I probably would have gotten a CO involved. Although in the end, its likely both deer were not going to live through the ordeal anyway.

If you are interested in reading more etc. do a search on "hunttigerridge"

I would have shot one of the bucks also. What a story. I'd much rather have the rack on the wall, the meat in the freezer and a unique story to share than letting the coyotes and crows get a free meal. Let them fight me off a road kill! grin.gif

I received an e-mail from the man that put the video on UTube. He said they had planned on trying to cut the antlers off one buck that was in bad shape but ended up shooting both using the tag of another hunter.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Hey eyes one thing nice is you have reveres to help clean out your holes

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
