Yesterday late season shotgun hunt. Fresh dusting of snow , 20 degree temps, 20-25mph northwest winds made for great still hunting conditions. About an hour into it a doe pops up at 60-70yds I let a 20g slug fly and dropped her where she stood. When I walked over I was surprised to see a massive wound that I belive was caused by a low placed 12g slug the week before. She had a broken leg and lower chest cavity was split open. I couldn't belive she was alive after that. The old wound was becoming infected and stunk, I was worried she may have gone septic and all the meat would be no good. I cut out the infection and butchered her last night. Maybe lost 1-2lbs of meat. The rest was all fine. You can see my shot a little further back with fresh blood. I belive she dropped when I hit her because she was so weak. I have no problem killing for food, but I always feel a touch sad for taking an animals life. I was happy to shoot this deer as I belive she would have died in the next few days.
