    bubba, the way he was tucked into that brushpile there was nowhere for him to go, fight or flight kicked in, and he had one option. i was an idiot for trying to grab his leg to drag him out.

      scratch

      I've known of several different cases of hunters hurt (none seriously) by wounded/dying game animals. Fortunately, I'm not among them.
      It's not because I haven't pulled my fair share of stupid stunts.
      Regardless of laws, I do carry a small .22 when hunting. (I have a CHL which makes it legal) I just think safety and ethics outweigh the consequences.
      But....that's my decision.

        I just put my boot on his neck until he's gone.

          I know in Pennsylvania, you're allowed to carry a pistol while turkey hunting, but only during a small game season, so I just step on its neck, then, if it has'nt died, I wring it's neck until it dies.

            I happen to agree with 99explorer I carry a NAA Black widow for snakes and what not the first 2 rounds I always keep bird shot which have come in handy especially at close range. The guns are relatively inexpensive considering you get the long rifle & magnum cylinder it might be something to look into.
