    I would totally grill my friends about it. It happened to me this year I shot a huge bodied 3x3 blacktail and after the recoil I saw a really nice 4x4 jump up and crest the hill in the clearcut I was in. It kind of bugged me but I never had a shot at him so I didn't let it get to me... but I still think, what if?

    None of my friends that I hunt with would hold back if it was me and neither would I if the role was reversed. But that is just the way we are with each other.

    I would get a picture of it. Then while we are cleaning up that good buck, we can celebrate and look forward to coming back together after the big one.

    Let the guy have his moment. All the time a guy spends dreaming about what he will take and all the time spent reliving it are half the fun of hunting. Why spoil it? There are plenty of other things to rib him about, I'm sure.

    i see it as a learning experience for the other hunter, no matter how novice of a hunter he may be we all need reminded sometimes to take the time and look around more. if the bigger buck was close to the shooter and he didn't see it even after the shot then that's to bad for the hunter. a few years ago I hit a spot known for its heavy heads and it was the last day I had to hunt, I hunted hard and found a small 4x4 and whacked em. as soon as I shot him 3 much larger bucks stood up and were gone. I instinctively started throwing another shell in the chamber wishing I hadn't rushed the moment. the hunter should still embrace the moment even more so after learning there was a larger one near by, its more fuel for the fire next tag.

    depends how close you are. i'd welcome the raggin if it was me, but i think if it was a less experienced buddy i'd let him/her have the moment.
