Would you Shoot a Buck Mounting a Doe?

Here’s a case many deer hunters have seen while hunting before having to make a split-second decision as to whether or not they should take this shot.
Should you shoot a buck that’s clearly mounted on a doe or let it go? You make the call.
Sporting men and women enjoy the fair chase and take the shot nature provides them. But sometimes, nature provides the unexpected shot.

What would you do in this situation?

For this hunter, that was a great shot and that buck is in the freezer right now. It didn’t look like the crosshairs were in the right place, but that was probably a camera issue.

We hunt the rut for a reason folks. Those big boys are running, chasing and losing their minds all at the same time.

From a personal experience, I’ve had the chance to take this shot just one time in my life, and I didn’t because the doe wasn’t receptive and they wouldn’t stop moving. When he got off and stopped, I plugged him.

I completely understand why some folks wouldn’t take this shot, but don’t be upset when others would because it’s been done successfully many times over the years.
