Video: Breeding Buck; Wait, Shoot, or Pass?

You’ve been hunting hard, and the big buck you’ve been after finally shows up. Every hair stands on end, and shivers chase themselves up and down your spine.

Then he hops up on a doe and starts giving her the business.

Would you shoot the buck off of the doe? Many would; with a steady rest there’s not much chance that you’d hit the doe. Would you wait until the deed was done and risk him running away afterward? Or would you let him go?

Watch this great little hunting video to see what happened here.

What would you have done?
