I know I saw it the other day. I was wondering who the TBH’er is. Looks like a guy I know but not sure.

Not sure but what I’m hearing and what I’ve read up on says it was “poached.”

The irony is that if someone who knows the story other than Travis (legally needs to protect himself) would tell the story of how the hunt went down then all the speculation would subside and we could have a discussion about it.

No one knows the story except for one person. Everyone else knows only what they've been told.

Not looking good for Travis. Still a lot of questions though. Why on Earth would he would he shoot after legal hours unless the buck was in such a state it could not move and if that was the case then why not wait until the next morning? No way the GW would let a violation slide on a buck of that caliber. Plus the restitution for that buck will be 10-20K.

Because big bucks make people do stupid and crazy things, even good Christian men blah blah blah.
edit: I'm not casting stones, if I saw that buck I'd probably shoot him in the dark too, plant claymores, land mines, rifle in bow season, anything to put him on the ground.

Oh. The only consistent thing I have read/heard is he admitted to shooting after hours to "mercy kill it" cause he wounded it it 2 days earlier.

May be your just your opinion, but it is absolutely irresponsible conjecture. Would be foolish of anyone accused of any illegal act to provide details to the general public regarding activity in a gray area of the law -- specifically, circumstances regarding dispatching a wounded deer. Law places no limits on means or timeframe, as I understand it. BTW, I don't know the hunter.

I'd agree with you if they were saying "it's a gray area" or "we think it's legal" or something along those lines. All we're hearing is "It's 100% legal!" in which case it wouldn't hurt to come out with it. Let's equate it to speeding ticket, "I wasn't speeding" wouldn't hurt you in court, but "I was doing 74 in a 70 and shouldn't have gotten a ticket" probably would. That's all I'm saying, it's not 100% legal like they're claiming and that's pretty easy to deduce, it's probably a gray area in which case yeah definitely don't provide any details that'll make it harder on yourself and I don't blame him/them for not coming forth with it.

Ummmm, no....

Legal or illegal would have jack to do with what my friends did/did not say...
I’m telling them to keep quiet untill the matter is settled; especially in a case like this that’s getting so much Internet attention...

Speculation till Travis or GW speaks...

Or they are just honoring their friends request to say nothing...

So you think they owe us an explanation over honoring their friend’s request?

Even if I had shot that buck 110% legal without any grey area at all, I wouldn't go around social media and posting it every where. Regardless of any circumstances.

It looks like the buck was gut shot, and was going to die eventually due to infection and not being able to process food properly. Now, smarter people than me will have to figure out the grey area of the law to determine if that was a follow up kill shot as allowed by law

I'm just saying the hunter doesn't owe us any comment, and would really be foolish to do so. His lack of comment is not an indication of guilt whatsoever.

Except that the word is the gut shot was the second shot and his first shot two days prior was high shoulder. Which wouldn't have been a lethal shot and if true when he anchored him with the second shot after dark he really wasn't "finishing him off"

Innocent or guilty, the man obviously doesn't want to incriminate himself.
Again go back to the speeding ticket example, saying "I wasn't speeding" won't hurt anything, whereas saying "I was doing 74 in a 70 but 4 mph over the limit." should be avoided. I'm 100% ok with anyone doing 74 in a 70, it's within the commonly used 10% rule.

Furthermore, nobody owes anything, but everyone needs to understand that the speculation will continue so long as nobody comes out with the story.

You quoted a post of me saying I don't blame them for not coming forth with their story, and then asked me if I think they owe us an explanation. lol

...and yes I'm positive it's a gray area otherwise one of you 20 buddies of his would simply say "yeah he shot it the 2nd time at 4pm broad daylight" and all these stupid threads could end.
