Tender Hearted Deer Hunter

  1. Tender Hearted Deer Hunter


    > A hunter and his friend were sitting
    in a
    tall tower stand along Highway 16 near Vanderhoof, BC early one cold December morning.
    >
    > Suddenly, a huge buck walked out over
    the
    corn they had spread in the low shrubs The buck was magnificent..... a once in a lifetime animal. His rack was huge. The hunter's hand shook as his mind was already counting the Boone and Crockett points.
    >
    > Moving quickly, the hunter carefully
    aimed the Leopold scope on his .300 Win Mag at the unsuspecting buck.
    >
    > As he was about to squeeze the trigger
    on
    this deer of a lifetime, his friend alerted him to a funeral procession passing slowly down Highway 16.
    >
    > The hunter pulled away from the
    gunstock,
    set the rifle down, took off his hat, bowed his head and then closed his eyes in prayer. His friend was stunned.
    >
    > "Wow, that is the most thoughtful and
    touching thing I have ever seen you do. You actually let that trophy deer go to pay respects to a passing funeral procession. You are indeed the kindest man I have ever known, and I feel lucky to call you a friend."
    >
    >
    >
    >
    > The hunter shrugged. "Yeah, well, we
    were
    married for 37 years."

  3. Woah... .300 WM for a deer? A bit overkill, don't ya think?




    Yeah, yeah, I got the point of the story. Reminds me of my ideal day out hunting.

    LOL, very true! I guess if your gonna do it, do it right!!

  6. Kinda to get a little off-topic, but I'm curious... Can anyone give me an idea of the size of a deer? I know what they look like, see 'em often enough in Pennsylvania here, but need to quantify it. What is the weight and shoulder height of a good size doe and buck?

    Reason I ask is that my perspective with them is really skewed lately. I picture them as pretty big, but then when I compare to my dog, they're definitely not that big! Last similar animal I saw out in the wild was a bull elk, so that's definitely too big. My Dane is 34" at the shoulder and about 145lbs - over 7 feet tip to tip easy.

    La. Basin
    Buck 240lbs.
    Doe 200lbs.

    La. marsh
    Buck 170lbs.
    Doe 140lbs.

    I once shot an annoying little squirel at 25 yards with a 308. He barked at me one too many times.

    The Achafalaya Basin is very nutrient rich. Run off from many rivers, lakes, and streams makes it excellent habitat for wildlife.
