OT- Deer season

I went before dawn on Saturday, and sat, and sat, and heard the
ker-whomping shots of people hitting deer after deer (they taught me the
different sounds), and then sat some more until the wind blew my stand
around, I couldn't hear any specific rustling, and the other shots all
but ended. Oh, and my ass hurt pretty badly after 6 hours, too. So I
cleaned up, took a long nap, and that was my first hunting experience.
I only reached for the rifle once, but didn't even grab it. Turned out
to be branches and a fallen log playing in the wind.

However, my brother-in-law bagged a 10-point "mounter" in excess of 220
lbs. at eight thirty. We'll have Uncle Buck for dinner soon enough. He
was a majestic specimen, to be sure. His body was like a barrel.
Brandon shot it directly though the heart, filling the lungs with blood.
That big strong beast ran only 40 yards. At least it was a quick
affair. Good shot.

But dammit for me, not even a look. But (as KB termed them) one more
bean-stomping, corn-eating, car-wrecking overpopulated buck down. And
this one it will be eaten and enjoyed, every last edible piece. His
head will be mounted in a nice place in their country house.

Speaking of thinning the herd, someone went to town for beer later
(doesn't that sound so Country) and at the gas station, saw a pickup
literally filled to the edges of the bed with deer... bucks, doe, etc.
"The most ridiculous thing I've ever seen" is how he termed it. Glad I
wasn't following THAT guy home. Eyuck. Bloodbath all over your car.

I think deer hunting would be a heck of a lot more fun if some hunters
actually went to hunt the deer hunters. That would add a bit of adrenalin to
the mix. Maybe they would only be allowed to use .22 rim fire ammo:)

It would have to be non-lethal like paint pellets or something. Yeah,
keep you on your toes, you don't know when you'll get fragged. Your
buddy sneaks up and pegs you. Trust no one! BAM! You're out, go home.
It would keep people hiding better, for sure.

Actually, I think they already do.... Look at how many get taken out
of play each year. You can wear red, be in a deer stand 30' off the
ground, and some idiot will hear a leaf rustle and shoot you as you
sit there just getting ready to take a sip of coffee....

We went deer hunting in Missouri in the early 70's. Some idiot shot our
trunk lid. There was an old joke about some deer hunter shooting a cow. So
the next year the farmer wrote "COW" on all his cows. So they shot his John
Deer tractor. Only thing is, I don't know if it's a joke.

I believe this is true. I've heard it before. He spray painted COW on
his entire herd.

So they shot his John

The cows did moo very loudly when we were up in our stands. We even
joked later, "if we two can't get a deer, let's go get one of those
freaking cows".

ALRIGHT, it was ME. I've been exposed. I'm 30 years older than I've
said I am, and have been living with this secret ever since.

Cue the music... "I shot the heifer... but I did not shoot the Deere
tractor"
