It’s important to always know your target — and what’s behind your target. It’s also very important to never shoot at a deer that’s standing in front of another deer. The last thing you want to do is shoot two deer.
Sure, it’s possible that both deer might die if an arrow passes through one deer and travels into a second. But it’s also very likely the second deer would only be wounded and left to suffer, possibly to die a slow death.
So what if you have only one deer tag and you did kill two deer? Game wardens rarely have sympathy, even when it is accident. Check out what happens in this video.
In the end, a conservation officer was contacted, and both deer were tagged. This is a good reminder to always know your target, and what is beyond it.
