Well a friend of mine was at work when a man showed up and said that he had just shot his first deer ever. So she looked out a window to see the man had a Calf straped to the roof of his car. He shoot a cow thinking it was a deer.
About 10 years ago. I got permision to hunt a new piece of property. The guy that gave me permision failed to mention that there was a deer farm (exotics) on the property next door.
I was sent down into the bottom to drive the deer to him. I got into the thicket and saw all the White tails flag, I "bulled" my way through the rest of it and leveled out the gun on the heard. I spoted antlers on one of them and got a good aim (then it clicked) those antlers are black! I didn't shoot but man it was close!
The deer herd ran right next to the penned in area on the other side of the hedgerow and right next to the herd of exotics inside.
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
