This reminds me of another hunter I read about, quite a few years ago, that had bad luck hunting, but not as bad as this man. He was moose hunting and had hiked 3 or 4 miles from where he parked his truck before shooting a moose. He knew he hit it, but the moose took off. The man stayed with him waiting for him to die. The moose died, but only after he went back to where the man parked and destroyed his truck before falling dead. I saw pictures in the news of what was left of the truck. It wasn't pretty!

An outcome I feel no sorrow for. Man is no greater than any other living thing on Earth, we know this from genetics. To think otherwise is just a delusion that provides us a false sense of comfort in a world where mortality is evident. It's natural, but I think stories like this have the ability to humble us not for any other purpose for doing our best to understand the reality. That life doesn't make Superiors just pushes us to achieve the bare minimum life.

On the bright side, he didn't have to drag it back to his truck! For those that don't like hunting (not trophy hunting which I despise), you might want to check out the Pittman-Robertson Act, established in 1937. Funds from the sale of guns and ammunition have allowed the purchase of lands for the conservation and management of wildlife. A lot of it being no hunting lands.
