    Released it back into the wild?

    I wouldn't have had to worry about dinner, if that was me...

    I'm thinking I'm gonna call BS.

    Why would any sportsman leave a crippled animal lying on a beach? Isn't that just asking for a predator fo some sort to come finish it off? Why waste the meat by leaving the poor thing to suffer?

    He wasn't crippled. He was tired.

    You think a predator is going to notice (or care about) the difference?

    I bet is something came after him he would have been able to get his rear in gear!

    As MP said tired I would say. Although the story sounds a bit off, you never know.

    Two problems with that logic

    1. Harvesting a deer out of season could result in the loss of your firearm, boat, and anything else you used in the taking of it.

    2. After that that much stress the meat would be saturated with adrenilin and pretty much unfit to eat. That's why it's always better to drop with a clean kill then a bad shot that results in a chase.
