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.

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).  
    • Sushilicious
      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
    • Rachelkate21
      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!
