WOUNDED DEER ATTACKS HUNTER WHO SHOT HIM ASSOCIATED PRESS
Stories like this crack me up. I am neither for nor against hunting. I grew up on a farm – my parents killed a lot of things and we ate them. My step-dad hunted and fished for whatever was in season. He even saved all of his vacation time during the year and took off from November to January in order to trap full-time. The money he made from the furs he trapped was essential to us. That said, I have never been able to kill anything. Hell, I can barely kill bugs.
SEDALIA, Mo. --- A Sedalia hunter bagged a big buck on the second day of firearms season, but the kill caused him a lot of pain. Forty-nine-year-old Randy Goodman said he thought two well-placed shots with his .270-caliber rifle had killed the buck on Nov. 19. Goodman said the deer looked dead to him, but seconds later the nine-point, 240-pound animal came to life.
The buck rose up, knocked Goodman down and attacked him with his antlers in what the veteran hunter called "15 seconds of hell." The deer ran a short distance and went down, and died after Goodman fired two more shots. Soon Goodman started feeling dizzy and noticed his vest was soaked in blood. So he reached his truck and drove to a hospital, where he received seven staples in his scalp and was treated for a slight concussion and bruises.
So yes, stories like this crack me up. While I wish Mr. Goodman no serious harm, I love that the deer put up a good fight and got in some licks. It's supposed to be a "sport", right?
