Just found this. A man shot a deer and when he found it "dead", it leaped up and gored him pretty bad.

Na, my guy does. Years ago as a state trooper I got a call about a guy that had a live buck inside his station wagon. Seems he shot a deer and then just placed it in his car and was off to show his buddies. Well seems that he just knocked the deer out, didn't have a clue about field dressing or anything else for that matter so when the deer came too it proceeded to trash the guys car and darn near kill him until he could get stopped and jump out of the car. By the time I got there he had managed to get his shotgun and shoot the deer again several times inside the car. Had all I could do to keep from wetting my pants

Had an old Gentleman down here, told me his deer story. They hunt with dogs here. He said he had shot a deer, loaded it and the dogs into the trunk of the car, got a few miles down the road and heard a hell of a commotion coming from the trunk. He thought the dogs were fighting, well they were, but not with each other but the deer. He popped the trunk and out came the deer followed by the dogs. I would pay to see that.

The ex sheriff of Nassau county shot a deer with his mini 14 and put it in his trunk and when he opened said trunk the deer took off to parts unknown. He swore up and down that the deer was dead.

Couple years ago some tree hugger was in one of our state parks when he ran across two elk with thier antlers locked up. He decided he needed to rescue them from each other by prying them apart. Well, sure enough he got gored. Went thru his sternam and just missed his heart. He spent several days in the hospital where he was quoted as saying, "that elk was stronger than me".

Wow. I hunt for meat - never had the desire to mount a head on the wall. First thing I do with a downed deer is cut the throat and gut it. If I see it jump out of my truck under its own power, I'll sell all my guns and pay for a CAT scan. :p

My dad told me that if you shoot a deer, and its eyes are closed when you get up to it, it isn't dead. Haven't been able to test that theory....

Favorite was the one i heard of where guy tried to pose for a pic with his fresh "kill". Rested his gun in bucks antlers, it got up and ran off with his rifle!

Had a co-worker show up to work two hours late with a story about how a buck jumped in his car through the driver's window and he had to kill it with his pocket knife while trying to pull off of the highway.

We didn't believe him until we all got out in the parking lot and saw the dead deer in the front passenger seat with blood everywhere and the whole headliner torn up from his rack!

Back before y'all were born, a couple of University of Texas students went out night-poaching and shot a deer. They put it in the trunk of the car and headed back to their house.

A cop stopped them for speeding across the Congress Avenue bridge. In the course of checking out this 2AM deal, he had them pop the trunk lid.

The evidence of the Dastardly Deed ran away.

He may actually be wise if he holds to his promise to quit hunting. A smart man knows his..."limitations".

Robert A. Heinlein described how his grandfather though he could bulldog a deer that had gotten out on a frozen pond and could not get enough traction to get off. The deer tined him through the heart.

I recall the story of the hunter who was hoorawed by his buddies for carrying an 8 inch Bowie knife hunting instead of a sensible 4 inch true hunting knife.
He made the mistake of leaning his rifle against a tree and approaching a downed deer.
When the wounded deer got up and seemed angry over being shot, he whipped out his Bowie and swung it at the deer's head. It chopped through an antler and buried up in the skull. DRT. Randall polished out the nick the antler left in the edge and his pals quit kidding him about his Bowie.

True story:
I shot a buck with my Hawken clone and broke his back. I had forgotten my 'possible' bag and couldn't reload. I only had a 3-blade stockman's pocket knife from Oldtimer and tried to wrestle with him to open a hole into his chest cavity so he would suffocate. Trying to subdue a buck by the antlers with one hand while trying to stick a non-lockblade knife in his ribs is not fun. I finally succeeded.

Here is the result:

Zardaia, I heard a story like that back around 85 while hunting in Penn.

Yesterday in our paper they showed a pic of a really nice urban mulie with a string of Christmass tree lights all tangled up in it's antlers The woman was quoted as saying, " I tried to get them off the deer but he wouldn't let me get close enough." I would have loved to see the rodeo that would ensue should she had got ahold of the wire.

I knew an old gentleman who was on safari and shot a Cape Buffalo. Him and the guide posed for pictures with it; and went back to get the truck.... when they got back it was gone. I saw the trophy picture: frontal/brain shot. Red in the middle of the forehead... They concluded it deflected off and just knocked the big guy out for a bit. Lucky they were gone when he shook it off!

Does anyone remember the "911 deer call"? It was a recording of an actual 911 dispatch call involving a not so dead deer.Hillarious,but not for prime time (young) ears.

When I was in college in SD, my landlord knocked on our door one morning and asked if we could help free the 4x5 buck from his haystack. We had to cut loose some twine from the top of the stack, then use a long pole pruner to hook the remaining rope/twine mess and pull the deer to the board fence (just beyond the left edge of the photo), where I held him by the antlers as my roommate cut the mess off his face, freeing him from the T-post you see in the picture. Their strength is astonishing to say the least. I'd never want to tangle with one in the open.

That haystack was a great place to find sheds in February.
