it would be better to try to raise a baby instead of going after one that is older and wiser to the human kind

Like someone mentioned earlier, never assume the deer is dead when you shoot it... My Dad learned that lesson long before I was born, and still has the marks to prove it ,,,those hooves hurt he says

I am a farmer, but I would NEVER attempt such a thing, so it wasn't me!  Besides, I don't write as nice as he does.  I'm kind of thinking it could be Uncle Willie covering with the "I'm a farmer" thing.  But then if it were Willie, I think he could take the deer right smack down if his back was feeling good that day!   

  NEVER tie yourself to anything that has it's own source of power!!!!!!!!!!

This was a great laugh! But I have to wonder, what kind of a farmer does not carry a knife? If not to kill the deer, he could have cut the rope when he was being drug around.

"I don't care who you are, that right there was funny!"

AND I can relate to several of his encounters.. 1st  I saw my buddy get his sorel boot get ripped wide open when he walked up to a wounded deer and went to kick it to see if it was still alive.. I still chuckle over that some days...2nd I wounded a 5pt buck one year, I walked up to it to see it still alive,, Instead of putting another bullet into him, I thought I would slit it's throat.I grabbed a large stick,about 2-3 in. around , and about 3ft  ,wedged his horns so his head was pinned to the ground,, took my big knife and tried to slit his throat..That's when all hell broke loose,, The stick went flying, the buck jumped up and knocked me down and ran,then fell back down..MORE bullets were required. :shoot2: .Tell that to your'e hunting buddies when you get back to camp !!! But I did get the buck with little more than some hair cut in his throat area and full of holes :rolling:

:bigrofl: Always poked the eye of them with a broadhead or the gun barrel.  Learned something two years ago.  I shot a medium size 8 point and poked his eye with a broadhead, no blink or flinch, watched 5-10 seconds no breathing.  Reached down to grab his rack and he almost jerked it out of my hand.  He was anchored and couldn't get up and took a breath every 20-30 seconds.  Had to put another arrow in him.  The first arrow was a fatal hit placement but they can be tough animals :cowboy_shooter: .

Wow. That makes me think of years ago when I was 14 or 15 out bow hunting. Had a deer directly under my stand which was not up real high for a good shot lane. Too think I actually considered jumping down with my knife. Glad I chose otherwise. That guy is lucky to still be alive after that experience. I can't wait to share this with my coworkers in the morning. We are all hunters.

Deer are now required to display "WARNING" labels.
