    Deer hunters don’t hunt in pairs. two “hunters” and only one shot?
    At the very least this sounds like a premeditated action.

    To the victim. shame on you for shooting a running dear. you got lucky and killed it. most of the time a running shot ends up wounding the deer.

    more than likely the deer had already been shot by one of the other hunters and they were tracking it…..
    the wounded deer ran past him then he shot it again and then tried to claim it as his…
    it happens…and can get nasty.
