My very first time hunting deer with my gpa (slug gun) i spine shot a doe and as we walked up on her to finish her off, she let out the most awful most horrid unrepeatable sound lots of hunters refer to as the "death groan." i cant really describe what it sounds like, almost like a low deep voice inhailing while groaning super loud. she was shot in the head after that and did not suffer longer than 20 seconds.
has anyone else heard this before?
does anyone know why they do it?
