My condolences to his family and friends as well.

I'll just point out that a whitetail (especially a mature buck) can easily seriously wound you as well. I usually throw a big stick at them once close enough and then poke them hard with a long branch when a bit closer. A lot of guys on video walk right up on them.

thats verey true .here on the west side if you are atacked by a black bear it will kill you and wont stop until you are dead .they will eat you alive and kicking if they are hungry they are just happy to get a bite.in a heard they run around killing in surplus.we have a four month long bear season and hunting them is not a game

i work with another old timer who years ago was tracking a mulie his dad winmaged far back and left overnight. it scured him to the ground breaking his ribs and the only reason he is still hear is due to the width of the rack with no eyegards.he and his brother who was with him thought he was dead for sure.same man had a spike bull oposite side of an oldgrowth tree and when it stepped around he let one off. arrowed it and his arrow diddnt even clear his riser
