Ditto on the game warden. Steve, you make a good point, but I have to poke the skunk here and say I have access to a small farm to hunt. With a bow (or even a rifle), the slightest bit off and that deer could run far, so it’s either hunt public land (not an option for me here, but that’s a different story) or make the best shot I can here and try to plan for all possibilities. I am not sure about AL laws, but here in PA, the game warden has the authority to take the deer off the property. They usually hate for it to come to that and try to reason with land owners, but some just hate hunters.
