So, after reading the thread by 323 (http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/...est-of-caribou), I started to wonder about when to take up a follow up shot in support of a hunting partner.
For the sake of argument lets say your hunting buddy draws Dall sheep tag, and you go along to support. After a your buddy takes the first shot the ram moves a little, looking a little dazed. Because the ram moved, your buddy no longer has a clear shot, but you do. You're confident that the first shot was a hit. So you take the shot before a wounded animal gets away. Once you reach the animal and start the field care you notice that there is only one hole, from your follow up shot.
So, when do you follow up in support of a hunting partner? How much evidence do you need of a hit, before you would be willing to help finish off another's animal?
Perhaps this is a question better suited for the Ask a Trooper Forum, but I was curious what others felt about follow up shots.
