    I don't doubt it after seeing videos of man vs deer .Especially the "tame " deer that people keep !
    Deer also know their territory very well . They know for example that a storm will knock down apples and they know exactly where all the apple trees are. I've watched them come onto my property after a storm , go right to an apple tree , take the apples knocked down , then leave ! I've been told by hunters that the deer they were going to shoot "just disappeared" !!
    I walked down a trail and came across a fallen tree. I stepped over it [I'm 6'1"] then noticed a deer track went UNDER the same tree ! Yes about crawling on hands and knees. Or a deer that jumped through a barbed wire fence that had strands 12" apart !

    I think that deer in the video knew the hunter was French.

    I believe the story is true. It was well written for a guy who farms and ranches for a living. But then, why shouldn't it be? In my experience they are some of the most intelligent and educated people I have ever met. He's a quick learner too and very observant. In less than thirty minutes he went being very naive and ignorant on deer behavior, to being an expert on not pissing them off. :D

    That's the funniest thing I've read in quite a while. Too crazy not to be true, lol. Corn-fed deer. Wow!

    I don't deny that some idiot tried that at some point. I just think a skilled writer took the story to a "higher level" with some creative embellishment.

    Excellent. I absolutely believe a redneck could have done this.

    It is quite well written, but I could see it happening. I got stared down once by a deer in my back yard when I was a kid; fortunately I was smart enough to back away slowly.

    That story was very funny. I can see it happening somewhat...although I must admit that the story does seem to be embellished...it is a good story.

    When I was about 12 we were camping in a TX State Park where the deer were used to being fed. A drunk cowboy on horseback decided to rope a good sized buck and that deer got right up on the horse with him and whipped his ass and spooked the horse into the next county. Last time we saw him he was being taken to the hospital by park rangers and then to jail we heard--KV

    Well, not this story but a fellow classmate in grade school told us about his uncle's knife fight with a deer. Seems the uncle, who may or may not have been intoxicated, struck a deer with his vehicle. Being more than a little bit red-neck and not wanting the meat to go to waste he and his buddy scooped the deer into their station wagon to get it home and tend to it beyond the view or prying eyes. Seems like about half-way home the dead deer "woke up" and remodeled the inside of the station wagon while the guys tried to stab it with a pocket knife. I don't remember know if my classmate said the deer added a sky light to the station wagon or not.

    All wild animals are dangerous. Deer (all species) evolved to defend against wolves, lions and bears. They do gore predators from time to time, including Man. Remember that when wounded a wild beast is even more dangerous.
