This group of does came by me in my backyard. The last doe was a big doe and someone had shot her in the hamstring. She was having trouble keeping up. The area that was injured looked to be the size of a football. I just can't imagine shooting a deer in that area. I guess she will die this summer from infection. I wish people were more sure of their aim.

I hate to see deer like that and it is sad to know that there are some who don't care about the animal enough to try their best and make every shot the best it can be.

I understand that, just saying that some hunters could care less and that's a fact.

Sure, but we have no way of passing judgement on said deer, anything could have happened? A hunter may not even be to blame here???

right, some hunters could care less about a wounded animal. But I care, and I hate wounding, and I have wounded a few deer in my life. Do I feel bad, yes. Sometimes we just make mistakes.
Does this mean I don't care about the deer?

wasn't passing judgement on said deer or hunter, just making statement that sadly is true sometimes.

its part of hunting, it happens. NO ONE is perfect and if you hunt long enought you WILL put a bad shot on a deer.

Bird dog I agree one hundred percent. Everyone that hunts long enough will make a bad shot. If I see deer that seem to be wounded then I try my best to take that one out instead of leting the yotes have it. 2 years ago I shot a doe that I thought had either been shot or hit by a car... turned out she was missing half of her back leg due to being caught in someones snare trap. I will also say that when I shot her she ran faster and farther than any of the other deer I have ever shot and her heart was mush!
