    A man in Ms. has killed two deer with one arrow. The arrow pierced the lungs and clipped the heart of one doe and passed through her and cut the jugular on a doe grazing beside her. The first doe went about 75 yards and the second one went about 75 yards further.

    Well in the first place, you learn at a very early age in Hunters Saftey that you do not take a shot at anything without a clear knowledge of what is on the other side. In the this state we get more than one tag for bowhunting but I don't think that taking that shot with those chances is very ethical or responsible. I have shot many a deer and have had only one not have a total pass through. For that reason I have passed some awfully easy chip shots due to that fact that the fawn was standing on the otherside of the doe.
    So as commendable as this may sound to some it not a very responsible act to be bragging about as a hunter.

    Just not at the same time tho. Just two deer with the same arrow shot twice! :nerd:

    Come shoot them out of our yard. They scratch themselves on the satellite dish.

    It was in the newspaper. The man knew what was on the other side, another deer. She was slightly behind the other deer, just happened to reach down to graze when the arrow passed through and it cut her throat.
    The hunter was in a tree stand and the likelyhood of that happening is very slim, even if you try.
    In Ms. you can just about kill any number of deer that you want. We are covered up with deer, especially does. Don't even need a tag, for bucks or does.

    It's been awful right around us. We usually see lots of deer and we haven't seen but maybe two or three. We haven't even seen any signs of them down in the woods. No trails, no scrapes nothing.

    My hubby is about a half a heart beat away from giving up this year and going ahead and going down and cutting firewood out of the woods. (he doesn't do any work in the woods until deer season is over) The only two deer that we've seen since last spring has been a doe and her fawn and they're the only ones we've seen for about 3 square miles.

    When I was a kid I overheard my grandpa asking my dad if he ever heard of anyone doing that and I remember thinking that would be the coolest thing ever.

    I wish I could send the jerks who have been hunting illegally from the road into my yard for birds. At least at your house they could be useful and legal.

    Stil doesn't make it ethical to take a risky shot. It is risky if there is a deer on the otherside of the animal he is shooting.

    It was a risky shot, but I'm glad that the deer did not suffer long. The worst would have been if either of the deer had had a gut shot requiring hours of tracking to find them before they died.
