There’s nothing like saying you’re officially tagged out, and luckily the hunters in this video got it on camera.
Travis Schneider was out on the last week of the season a couple of years ago, trying to fill his deer tag.
Filmed by his hunting partner Tom, this hunt comes to a dramatic ending as the deer gets shot on the run.

We all know how hard it is to describe that perfect kill shot to someone who wasn’t there, and thankfully this video puts us right in the action. Tom did a great job of filming the deer as it gets shot on the run. Watching Travis use a timber pounding technique in the snow-covered mountains of Idaho, is enough to make any hunter excited about harvesting a mule deer.
Although the parting shot shows Travis carrying only the antlers on his pack, he and Tom packed out all the meat.
