People are idiots. More people get put in the hospital from deer attacks than bear attacks. Deer even kill people.

<div class="quote-block">Now, when a deer paws at you and knocks you down, it does not immediately leave. I suspect it does not recognize that the danger has passed. What they do instead is paw your back and jump up and down on you while you are laying there crying like a little girl and covering your head.</div>

Muahahaha!!! What a sweet mental image.

I was wholeheartedly cheering that deer along the whole way. Serves him right!

<div class="quote-block">Despite the gash in my head and the several large knots where I had cleverly arrested the deer's momentum by bracing my head against various large rocks as it dragged me across the ground, I could still think clearly enough to recognize that there was a small chance that I shared some tiny amount of responsibility for the situation we were in.</div>

There was a story like this in Cooks Illustrated a while back. Very funny, but a shame his take away is "if you want to kill a deer, bring a gun".

These stories make me wonder why people assume they're the smartest animals. Keep a deer in a stall? Doesn't this guy know they can clear an 8 foot fence effortlessly?

And trying to feed it CORN?!? Clearly that guy doesn't know his ass from his elbow. Ruminants are seriously not meant to eat grain, in order to feed it to cows they have to use machines to flake it up and do all manner of things to it and it still makes them sick and gives them indigestion.<br><br>
If he tried to give a deer a bucket of straight corn kernels it would probably just stare at him blankly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

This piece illustrates my favorite kind of humor, where the author makes himself the butt of the joke. Or in this case, the weakling, misinformed, idiot. And the deer is the strong, daring, smart one, getting the revenge the reader hopes he will get on the bad-intentioned idiot. It's why the story works. I hope people realize he is doing this intentionally, and that the incident might not have even happened.

Well, let's give the man credit (assuming this actually happened and isn't a tall tale, as Joan suggests may be the case just above):
<div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">I figured if I just let it go with the rope hanging around its neck, it would likely die slow and painfully somewhere. At the time, there was no love at all between me and that deer. At that moment, I hated the thing, and I would venture a guess that the feeling was mutual.... I could still think clearly enough to recognize that there was a small chance that I shared some tiny amount of responsibility for the situation we were in. I didn't want the deer to have to suffer a slow death, so I managed to get it lined back up in between my truck and the feeder -</div>

Humans are indeed difficult to understand. His intentions were to capture and eventually butcher the animal, after all, but then he tries to make sure the deer doesn't die later.<br><br>
But the deer must have been terrified.

If he didn't do it, he must have at least thought about it, or heard of someone else who tried, but the story veered into slapstick territory for me at some points, like one of those Tall Tale folk stories. I guess he could have gotten the deer to eat corn, esp if corn feed was in that trough the deer were always congregating at. I know a guy who pastures calves to market size in his fields for a few months a year. For their last few weeks of life they get corn instead of grass, which supposedly makes their meat more tender. So if he was after venison but more tender... That part made his story ring true, and it really kept me guessing about whether it happened and how much of it might have been exaggerated. I did enjoy how he made the deer come off so much better than himself in the telling.

Proof that natural selection exists at its absolute finest. It's almost as good as the guy who drank elk piss and got pwned by a deer in front of his wife.
