I'm sure this video will go a long way in promoting the image of ethical sport hunting.

Many within our own ranks are killing us. This is just another perfect example.

Keith Warren is trying to make it exciting entertainment.
The doe took a high velocity round straight through the head. When a deer gets shot in the head they drop that fast.

I thought he may have grazed it...

 

#1 he says he missed

#2 says they skin/butchered it and found no evidence of hit

 

still say he's an idiot

If its a nuisance permit protecting an active runway, or something like that, fine, but otherwise, that smacks of varmint control, shooting prairie dogs and woodchucks at long range.

I watched the video with no sound so I didn't hear the commentary. With saying that, all I saw was a head shot, deer down. What's wrong with that ?  The deer dropped right there on the spot. The only damage was to the head area. The rest of the meat was not damaged.

 

I once dropped a doe right where she stood with a shot to the neck with a 20ga shotgun slug. Her death was instant as she crumbled right there. If they're close enough, I go for a head shot.

I usually take the neck or head shot on a doe. It drops the animal on the spot. No ruined meat, no tracking.

Let me guess, someone is going to try it with an RPG next......

this video is along the same line of those hunting videos you see where the hunter is laughing his ass off after killing a good buck.

 

make like you've been there before,  and stop with the giddy little kid laugh after the kill. 

Its just one of those things that gives hunter a bad peripheral to the non hunters and anti's
