      put it down regardless, not matter the size you have to do the humane thing.

          I'd put it down and have had to do so on a couple of occasions. One smelled so bad I just left it lay; didn't need the meat bad enough to risk getting sick. I think it had been shot during the first gun season and I shot it in the second season (Illinois). The deer had been suffering for 2 weeks.

            Ask yourself, is this deer wounded from gunshot? Some hunter will be looking for it. Let it go or put it down and let the hunter get their deer, if that's the case

              Good answers fellas, My dad always told me that no animal was worth another one suffering.

                  Put it down. My brother shot a 3 that was hit by a car and I once had to put down a fawn with 2 broken legs a lower back problems. I shot it in the head with a .22.

                    Ive had to do this very thing after watching a doe get hit by a vehicle...the only humane thing to do was to end her suffering...

                          4 years ago after a volley of gun fire from a drive several hundred yards away a doe fawn with no lower jaw came walking past my stand. There was no question, i shot it on the spot, they would have never found it and it would have died a slow death by starvation otherwise. It was an 80 pound puppy dog but it was the right thing to do.

                            put it out of its misery. It is the right thing to do as well as the humane thing.

                              I'd put it down then look around for a hunter that shot it.

                                Like most everyone else, I buy a scope to feel a need. Only a few times have I taken advantage of a sale.

                                Bubba, I've been curious too. This is our first and so far I like it during dry fire. We're going to see how it is at the range in a few days....

                                On 7/19, Milldawg mentioned he'd ordered a laser sight for his wife's Ruger LCP 380 and they were on sale at MidwayUSA. Well, that inspired me to order...

                                Good question. The old style Ruger LC9 has a very long trigger pull that's similar to that of a double action only revolver. I think it would be unlikely...
