Went deer hunting for the 1st time and friend's grand dad

told me "No no, we save a bullet and just cut the throat" when I was about to put the deer out of its misery with a final 3006 shot to the head. He took out his big knife and cut the struggling deer's throat and dragged it about 20 feet by the antlers (to help drain the blood out).
Question: why would we need to save a bullet and basically torture the deer? Is there some logic to this or was he just a sadist?

      Assuming this isn't a troll thread, you are both morons far more guilty of animal cruelty than dear ol dad. Pops is right, slitting the throat causes instant blackout/death it is humane. HOWEVER
      If you shoot a deer in the right spot, which is easily 8" in diameter BTW, it will die in a few seconds from the shock and loss of blood/air.
      If you have to chase it down and execute it after the fact, you NEVER should have taken that shot and you should not be allowed to hunt until that is drilled into your empty melon head.
      I see deer every year that are lamed or crippled from shitheads like you that think hunting means blasting away the minute you see fur and it makes me sick.
      Thank the old man for not kicking your ass on the spot.

          It's a tricky thing to do properly and requires a very sharp knife, and a very deep slashing cut. The windpipe, jugular, and carotid must all be severed - this quickly leads to death within seconds as the blood pressure drop to the brain causes the animal to pass out and die extremely quickly. Dragging the animal's head up speeds the process too. It's very fast and while not totally painless, is going to kill them before they really can show or feel much pain.

        homie, this isn’t a fricking video game. Bleeding out still takes time for blood pressure to drop enough for the pass out, especially if it’s a bigger animal. The brain is still working, and experiencing the bleed out till then.
        A shot to the brain mangles the fricker, sometimes the brain will still function in some capacity for a quick moment, but for the most part, the very thing that processes that very pain and suffering is damaged, along with a whole host of a lot other things that make thinking/experiencing work in the first place.

    Some consider headshots undignified to the animal and only do it to put one down that has become dangerous from its wounds. The throat needs to be cut for cleaning anyway, so if it also puts the animal down faster then there you go.

        Who says I agree with the sentiment i described. Yet it still exists. It’s why I don’t eat kosher or halal meat. They dispatch the animal by slitting its throat while alive while a rabbi or imam shakes a little scepter at it. Proper kill plants just kill them unawares.

          Kosher slaughter is done by a Zagat not a Rabbi. Anyone can do zabiha slaughter. The arteries in the neck and the windpipe need to be severed in zabiha. The brain detects loss of blood flow and shuts down pretty much all function and sends signals to the heart to pump more blood to the brain which causes the blood to spill from the arteries.

          MashaAllah, Grandpa is a Muslim by making the deer halal

          Zabiha slaughter only applies to livestock, not wild game. The meat is still halal so long as the animal was not bludgeoned, crushed, thrown from a high place, or strangled to death. In fact, cutting of the throat of a wild animal can be considered a form of Biddah (innovation) which is the worst form of Shirk (associating partners with God)

            What about adrenal function and hormone dump? It taints the meat. It’s part of why lamb and veal are so popular in those cultures. Because their method of slaughter makes adult meat gamey as frick. Perhaps 1200 years ago it was perhaps the most ethical method of slaughter, but not anymore.

              I grew up eating goat, lamb, and mutton. The meat is naturally gamey, even more so than venison. I've never noticed any gamey taste in zabiha beef, veal, or chicken. The animal is dead in less than a minute. Standard slaughterhouse procedure in the US is kill chickens by cutting the throat either by hand or machine. The same goes for beef:

              "After stunning, cows are hung by their legs on a pulley that moves them through the rest of the slaughter process. Their throats are cut and the major blood vessels in their neck are severed, and they die from blood loss — a method of killing called exsanguination. If stunning has not been performed correctly, or if the interval between stunning and bleeding is too long and the cow returns to consciousness, exsanguination may easily take 20 seconds to ensure unconsciousness, and up to a minute in many cases."

                One is knocked out before having its throat cut, minimizing hormonal and adrenal dumps that would taint the meat. The other has its throat cut and left to bleed out. While it is still quick, the adrenal and hormone dump still happens as the animal is conscious.

    If you were still hunting and didn't drop the deer dead aka: a poor shot, then yes it should be bleed as quickly as possible as the blood getting pumped deeper in the deer's tissue will give it a stronger gamey taste... Especially on bucks.
    If you were hunting with dogs... No need to bleed... Just enjoy your strong musty tasting meat.

        Yes, because it is for the stated reasons? Do you also shoot the animal in the throat? Ever heard of a "boiler room" shot?
        Slitting the throat works for bleeding the animal out, but it's not necessarily faster if you don't keep the head up.
        Making the lungs collapse makes the animal go unconscious in a few seconds, and ideally you hit the heart in the same motion.

    Cutting the throat isn't torture, but a traditional approach of removing blood from an animal. It helps if the animal is technically almost alive at that moment. Most commonly used by israelites, muslims and the like, but also used by normal people.

    People vastly underestimate the time it takes for a deer to die when their adrenaline is up. A perfectly shot deer through the lungs can run hundreds of yards before expiring. Cutting the throat is the fastest field expedient way of finishing off a wounded animal, aside from shooting it in the head. Shooting it in the head can also go wrong if it shifts at the last second or if you don't know what you're doing.

      Look at humans.
      Plenty of bodycam of someone getting magdumped and still weakly moving a bit before dying. Then you have the druggies or some frick hopped up on adrenaline not really stopping their attack after a couple fatal, but not instant, shots are put into them. I expect a healthy medium sized animal in the wild to be a touch more hardy than your average drug addict. Especially off of one shot that isn’t shattering bones or hitting CNC.

    If you make a clean heart/lung shot, and find the deer after waiting 15-30 minutes after the shot, it'll likely be dead. If not, it's either a weird fluke or a poor hit, and the deer will either be thrashing around on the ground or will try to flee again when you approach. If it's thrashing on the ground, a knife to the throat is usually more reliable than trying to hit the brain. Come from the back so you don't get hooved, then grab the rack or the ear to control the animal and cut in below the jaw, sawing back and forth until you hit the spine. Lift the head to cut the supply to the brain off faster, then as low as possible to drain the carcass.

    If the deer gets up as you approach, shoot it again as many times as you can. You've wounded the animal and it's your responsibility to put it down as quickly as possible, even if you lose meat

      If a deer is thrashing around on the ground I'd rather try to dispatch it from a couple feet away and risk missing a shot or two than try to approach it with a blade in my hand.

    >and cut the struggling deer's throat and dragged it about 20 feet by the antlers (to help drain the blood out).

    Blood letting makes the meat taste less gamey.

    >logic to this or was he just a sadist?
    Yes, all deer must be bled out, it's just rarer you get to them when the heart is running, mostly they are hit in the chest and the blood gathers there and up open that to get it out. It has top be done fast, before the blood sets, typically some you'll work the back legs. Its the wya he was taight by his father I recon.

    No my part. I have killed everything, everything and in volume. I was started hunting young and 9 and it was a big part of my life and ;later went on to kill people. When I got old (I am old) I regretted that, Maybe the animals more than the people in some cases. The thing is there is nothing wring with what your father did. He was probably far more correct than the posters larping as hunters and passing judgement on him as technically he was absolutely spot on in meat quality. The thing is, that's killing for you. When I was a kid it was difficult for us to get meals like you do now, it was very expensive to get like a whole fat chicken in a supermarket, that was maybe a feast day or a Sunday meal for a family. A big treat. To be able to have a rabbit in a pot or a few birds was like FRICK YEAH for the whole family, Deer was funnily enough not such a big deal as how the frick do you freeze it so that would be swapped with a neighbour (I remember getting fan belts). Most big antrlers I would pick up as cast offs. I have shot creatures like cats sick with flu and old deer, like when the stag is pushed out and hopping and on his own and that was the last animal I killed. In the end this big on stag was just walking along beside be, he knew I was going to kill him and he just sat down and looked at me bitterly and I walked up and blew killed hi. I dunno now about all the killing I did and mostly for food now its not even useful, its way more expensive than just walking into a shop and buying a nice fat lean chicken.

    Since it was your first time he was probably just showing off and being macho.
    I've heard of quite a few old timers getting killed once in a while catching a flaying hoof going in to slit a deers throat after it looked like it was mostly already gone and didn't look like it had much fight left in it.
    If he strung it up and gutted it it was probably going to happen anyway but I hear a lot of people just tag them and drive them to a butcher shop these days. There was a bit of a scare years ago about spreading chronic wasting disease messing with the brain, like splattering it. Maybe he thought you wanted to keep it in tact for a trophy? Sometimes people bring a hack saw to take off the skull cap for the antlers and chuck the rest of the head. I mean you're not that much better off going for a contact shot with a pistol than you are a knife avoiding a hoof personally I would use a side arm I have on my rather than a rifle round point blank and make it look like I'm just blasting the thing apart for fun a 30.06 at point blank should have a really nasty exit wound I wouldn't be surprised if it ruined a lot of the meat. A contact shot isn't going to help that any and probably contribute to it being worse.

      >hack saw to take off the skull cap for the antlers
      we did that back in his after driving back home. After slitting throat / dragging he cut the balls / penis off and handed it to me saying "haha you can make this into a whiskey flask haha", broke the back legs, and then gutted it. The sites of all that deer semen dripping out of the genitals and all steam spewing as he dragged out all of the guts were surreal. The sounds of all gurgling blood during the cut throat as it looked at us was pretty fricked up too. I did find the processing interesting back at the shed, especially cutting / grinding the deer meat and adding some pork make 'smokies'. All of the meat was pretty damn delicious.

    its fine to shoot, and its fine to slit their throat
    when im hunting i usually dont take much more ammo than to fit in a single mag, which if im using a bolt action i would probably save it
    but thats also because i dont care about poaching and want the added ammo, and will just shoot any edible animal i see, but if you're just out there for deer, you wont need extra ammo
    theres also the possibilty of using spare ammo to scare smaller game out of bushes but i dont know how effective that is

    Cutting the spine behind the ears or stabbing behind the shoulder blade is standard procedure. Throat cutting is generally a fricking mess.
