a deputy that doesn't know how to deliver a kill shot (even to an animal) at point blank range should lose his job, or at least have his bullets taken away Barney Fife style.

Yeah, I went hunting once. Shot a deer in the leg. Had to kill it with a shovel. Took about an hour. Why do you ask?

Ditto this. A hammer works wonders as well. It is amazing how many LEO's know next to nothing about their assigned weapons. Most do, but there are some real nimrods.

To shoot a deer 17 times in the gizzard is just steady stupid. One round in the head and it would be ready to be picked up by the highway dept.

So not only does this animal get hit by vehicles twice, but a moron deputy comes and shoots it 17 more times. Talk about adding insult to injury!

I love seeing deer explode upon impact.
No meat but it's cool.

It's a good thing he gutshot the deer 17 times, or else he may have given himself glock-leg when he reholstered.

To be fair, I wouldn't be surprised to see this from an idiot deputy out of any state, except maybe Alaska; can't see anyone from there not knowing how to put a deer down.

Yeesh. I'm a geeky city girl who barely ever leaves her room, and even *I* know (albeit through a slashy Metal Gear fanfic... eh heh heh...) that shooting something in the stomach is one of the absolute worst ways to kill it.

Was it a doe, or a buck? If it was a buck, I'm guessing what he really wanted was a trophy.
 
2010-09-16 02:33:46 PM
I have dispatched a couple of deer with a 22 pistol, put the barrel behind the ear so you don't have to punch through the skull. The bullet goes into the brain and it is all done mess free.
The more you know.

Three years ago a man some of you might know passed away from a massive heart attack. He was a powerful man, and a ruthless man. Throughout his life he did everything in his power to add to his wealth and it mattered little to him the damage left in his wake.

He was not mourned.

He awoke as a speckled fawn, running with his mother and learning the ways of the earth. Dimly he felt the memories of his past life fade out and marveled at this new level of existence.

Then he was hit by a car, twice. And gut shot 17 times. Karma is not only a biatch, she's a patient one.

As a result of the incident, patrol staff now will receive training on how to quickly kill an animal that is critically injured, Lt. Steve Maynard said.

Didn't anybody read the article? It says right in there that it was flailing it's head around so he couldn't get a good shot at it's head.
Why he couldn't wait for help to arrive to hold it still, I don't know.

I was traveling on a dark wet highway about 10 years ago and in the headights I saw a group of deer right across the highway, there was no way out of this one as the ditches were quite deep. I had limited control of steering and zero brakes. I aimed for the smallest one and nailed him at 70kms/hr. I broke 2 of his legs and it was obvious he needed to be put down. I checked the trunk and all looking for a tool of sufficient weight to do the job. No luck. I asked my wife to get out of the car and turn her back but she wouldn't. I positioned my vehicle's tire to aim for the poor animal's neck and drove over it. It did the job but it haunts me to this day. I just thought of the ravens that would be picking at it's eyes while it was still alive in the morning and I knew I had to do it.

Why does that AK look like it was made for midgets? I have a few and none look that small. And the one in front looks like a Gamo Whisper air rifle. Middle one is a SKS I'm guessin?

Landing N6781F at Groveland airport at dusk one cold and wintry night with my eyes into the sunset I had just squeaked it when at least 30 F" ing deer were on the runway right in front of me This was in a Piper Lance with just me and 1/2 tanks and the throttle hit the firwall and I pulled that airplane up like We were picking up a banner.
Missed them by that much and lived to continue.
I hate deer unless of course thet have been BBQ'd
.22 ( or anything for that matter) to the head drops an injured road kill bambi like flipping a switch

Not a cool story bro
more like "never again"

Sounds like cop marksmanship at its finest.

Shooting the deer in the gut??? That's cruel, and it ruins the meat! Go for the thorax.

Then again, he was probably using 9mm rounds. Deer are large animals, and require large caliber rounds to take one out efficiently and humanely. Preferably 12-guage slugs, but .45 ACP will do the trick as well.

Just came to drop off this cool story.

A couple years ago I hit a deer. I knew I had broken its back because it kept trying to get up and its back legs didn't work, so I called the cops to come dispatch it as I don't make a habit of always having my gun on me. I waited, and waited, and waited... and waited. About 30 minutes later I decided the cops weren't coming and that I needed to put the poor thing out of its misery. It had stumbled off the road and down in to a ditch which eliminated the option of driving over it. So I looked in the car and realized that I had three options: A black steel tire iron, a small case pocket knife, and a gerber camp ax. I scrambled down in to the ditch, got as close to the deer as I felt like I could, and I swung that ax as hard as humanly possible right at the base of the deers skull. It drove in deep and it was such a strange sensation that I can't really accurately describe it. The closest thing I can ever think of is that it felt kind of like cutting an apple in half down through the core, but times 100 and in the blink of an eye. (Although it seemed like a lifetime of eye blinks at the time.)

To this day I feel like I should have been horrified by the whole ordeal but I'm really not nor was I ever. Right after the ax hit the deer exhaled and relaxed and looked completely relieved. And it was over as quickly as it began. It was an incredibly surreal experience. I took a deep breath to collect myself, pulled off my shirt and my under shirt (I put my shirt back on because I'm not that randomly shirtless guy), and used my undershirt to wipe the blood and deer matter off the ax. I tossed the shirt beside the deer-- because it was 100% cotton and would biodegrade in next to no time, right?-- and climbed back up out of the ditch ax in hand.

I stopped for a second to survey the damage and to figure out if I could drive home, and right as I was walking around the car to put the ax back in the trunk a cop pulled up. He walked over, looked at my busted up car, looked at the dead deer in the ditch with the gaping ax wound, and then proceeded to ask me if I had killed it with the ax-- which was still in my hand-- and if it was my blood covered t-shirt laying there. I said yes I had just killed the deer with an ax, because I had, indeed, just killed a deer with an ax and yes it was my t-shirt because it was the truth and incredibly obvious since I was standing there with a not bloody ax in my hand and my shirt half tucked in. He stood there for a minute, and after the whole ordeal Officer Farva actually had the gall to tell me that if I didn't pick up my now bloody undershirt and put it in my car he was going to write me a ticket for littering. I couldn't farking believe it.
