"I'm so thankful tho have FINALLY found a forum with hunters as equally skilled as myself who have NEVER had a hunt go sideways for any reason!"
All of us have had "stuff" go "wrong" on hunts if you've spent any amount of time hunting. BUT,, just by the video they posted,, and the info they provided,, the WHOLE story wasn't shown. As such,, many good people make comments & judgements based upon the information provided. Kinda like a court case. Evidence is presented,, and the jury has to judge based upon the information provided. Yet,, a lot of information may not be made available to the jury.
"I found ANOTHER forum full of hypocrisy."
You've been a member here for 9 days so far. Yet,, you've jumped to conclusions based upon just (1) post?
There are MANY good, solid hunters here, and we'll readily admit to mistakes, our own failings, etc.
You just did exactly what you judged us to be doing.
So,, I'll politely say this;
I've been here for quite a while. I've made some wonderful friends,, and seen a lot of good people make a mistake in a posting, (myself included.) This Forum actually has a LOT of very good, helpful folks who have stepped up & OPENLY admitted their mistake(s).
Concerning this thread,, AND the fact we can only judge things by what the couple posted on the internet,, we may make assumptions, judgements, or comments based upon that. Just like what wolfsong posted,, the fact (not in the OP) that the guy was a licensed guide. As such,, it provoked my response of wonder about his abilities & not carrying a good solid back-up firearm.
It's all about the information provided.
