    Can you believe this?

    I took this story from Guy's Scoping it out of this annual Mule deer issue. What a shame!



    The second story that tops my list is crazy in a sad way. In Denver I met a fellow vendor who was hunting mule deer solo in the backcountry of Utah last fall when he slipped and fell, resulting in a blown out, dislocated knee almost three miles beyond the trailhead. The hunter had no choice but to crawl the long and rough three miles back to his truck. After taking all day to crawl only a single mile, his hands and good knee bloodied and bruised, he heard something approaching in the distance. In a few minutes two heavily loaded backpacking hunters appeared coming up the trail. The injured hunter explained his situation and desperately asked for their help to get him to safety before darkness set in.

    Much to his surprise, the two hunters declined his request for help, citing that the season was short and they needed to get back to where they were headed before dark. They needed to glass a distant basin, and besides, the injured hunter was too big for them to help. They proceeded to leave the injured hunter on the side of the trail. He crawled all night to finally make it to his truck almost 16 hours later. So much for the backcountry code of ethics! I agree this dude was big, really big, and he is still looking for you two, whoever you are.
    I don't Break the rules, I Modify them.

    what in the hell? that disgusts me so badly; to think any outdoorsman would treat a brother that way. i love my hunting and packing trips but never wouold i value it over another mans life as these gents did. they are no better than the enviros that threaten other human lives for hunting, nope, they are in the same class of garbage.

    In that situation, is it okay to shoot one in the leg??? Even if I was by myself, I would have done everything in my power to not leave this man alone and get him safely to a hospital. Even if that means climbing to the top of Mt. Everest for cell service.

    Unbelievable! There are some selfish people in this world but that one takes the cake. If I ran into anyone in that situation in the back country they would not have to ask for my help! I cant even drive by anyone on roads that arent very well traveled without stopping to see if they need help.

    Wow!! That is unbelievable! Makes me wonder if there is another side to the story. Not discrediting the story or its source, but to think a fellow sportsman would do such a thing is difficult.

    That's unbelievable, no way could I walk away from someone in need, even a tree hugging anti would get help from me.

    Whoa... I don't even know what to say about this.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
