    that's only the diarists assumption or editorializing because it sounds bad.

    •  did a little link following, found a F&H site wher (5+ / 0-)

      one of the posters claimed it was a gutshot,  and his link is a bit more damning,  but still doesn't say gutshot....

      What he did do, no question,  was abandon the wounded deer so he could go to a presidential fundraiser.......... instead of tracking it and finishing the job, he left that part for the little people to try to prevent any further suffering....

      Of course, prevention of suffering doesn't seem to be on ol Timmy's agenda......

        Followed the other link to a hunting forum or something. They hit on most of the important points. I've yet to meet someone who has shot a lot of deer and not had one get away. I fault his politics, not his hunting. A more typical politician would be  high fence hunting.

    •  Technically true, but "gutshot" is hunter (1+ / 0-)

      slang for a shot that goes awry of the target area, especially when the animal isn't found. One assumes that when an ungulate is shot clean it will go down quickly, if not then recovery is hit or miss. The term is more literal for smaller game, like turkeys, where a gutshot ruins the prime meat.

      •  actually it's not (0+ / 0-)

        gutshot means a shot to the digestive system ie the guts.

        Deer, elk, antelope, can run a long way with a shot to the vitals and never be found. It happens. Only in the movies does every shot drop them in their tracks.

        You can pick on this poll all you want for many reasons, but as a slob hunter not.

        There's no hard and fast rule, just that you should make the effort. If you have a good blood trail it shouldn't be hard, if no blood maybe it wasn't an incapacitating shot.
