Do you think the guide encouraged the fellow to take a shot at the moving animal because he was in a hurry?

Yes, welcome infntry!
I refrained from posting (is that even possible) on this until now... but for good reason...

...Everything I say on the www. is public info! Now I have finally toned down my thoughts I will say that I would have told the shooter, in no polite manner, to finish it off or I would have. AS FAST AS POSSIBLE, I would have put the animal down and if anyone around had a problem with that, I would deal with it however they wish.

Ending the animal's suffering:

I am a long time hunter and feel without question that you did exactly the right thing by dispatching this animal who was in pain. We have the responsibility to make a clean kill and nothing else. I would have asked this scum bag if he would like to be dragging himself around after someone made a bad shot on him?

2damnold4this yes.... that is exactly what he did. ive acually got video of the shot and about 8-10 seconds following the shot. and you can tell the guide is more interested in following the heard than the crippled animal

Some Guide! Sounds like HE needs a good lesson in ETHICS, himself. These kind of things never cease to "amaze" me...

You absolutely did the right thing. That guide needs to be hunting a job, not game animals. And whatever venue is responsible for hosting this sorry excuse for a guide needs to be ashamed of itself. I hope you do send them the link to this thread.

Mindset - Skillset - Toolset. In that order!

Attitude and skill will get you through times of no gear, better than gear will get you through times of no attitude and no skill.
