You would think that you have heard just about anything from some deer hunters but I heard two stories recently that shocked me.

1. Hunter: My son killed a nice 8 pointer last week.

Me: Do you have a picture or the antlers? I would like to see him.

Hunter: No. Both antlers of the deer were broken off.

Me: Oh. I guess he had seen him before he broke his antlers off.

Hunter: No. He just looked like he should be an 8 pointer.

2. Hunter: (same hunter) My son shot a 150 class buck last week.

Me: Wow. You don't see many that big do you.

Hunter: Nope. The only thing is that after he shot the deer, he didn't go to where he fell to check on him. He went back to the truck to come and get me to help get the deer out. When we got back to where he had shot the deer, he was gone and we never did find him.

I've shot a lot of bucks that looked a lot bigger in the scope than in person, but never had to imagine what I thought one was. If I did it would be bigger than an 8 point , I guarantee you that.

#2 is a normal deer story. The ones I have shot and never found... they grow as the story is re-told over the years. \:\)

I was in Rural King a few yrs back and it was the juvi weekend. Some guy answered his phone and i guess someone was asking his opinion on where to hunt. His reply was "Well ill tell ya, they'll either be in the woods, or they'll be in the field".. I wanted to say no Crap Sherlock, where frekon else will they be at!

The vast majority of my bucks shrink. I shot one huge 10 point in 2010. He was running. When I found the critter a few minutes later I was about to think I had accidentally shot a doe his rack had shrunk so bad. He had somehow transformed into a 10 1/2" spread 5 point. I swear he was huge when he ran by me in the low light. \:\)

The 8 point I shot this past year is the only buck who has grown after pulling the trigger.

Well, there WAS that one that I shot at and missed right during the last minutes of shooting light on the last evening of the season in 2004........he made a Bull Elk look like a chipmunk........ \:\)

My buddie told me last year that he shot this doe on accident.He said "the doe and 10 pt was facing each other nose to nose like they were kissing, I put the crosshair's on the buck's shoulder, my gun must have been way off because I hit the doe right in the neck" I said man you don't have to make up an excuse on why you shot a doe. This guy has the most unbelievable deer stories you'll ever hear in you life.
I swear he must be seeing stuiff or a compulsive liar. He also see's bucks fighting everday when he goes hunting in the rut.
He also seen them walking on their hind legs balancing on a fence to pick blackberries, I'm like man he must of just not liked the ones that were a foot off the ground.

I will never understand why people lie about hunting so much.

One day I was driving home and saw a guy parked at a store with a 24" wide 8 point. I stopped and talked to him. He was excited because it was his best and he was probably in his 60's. I congratulated him and went home. I checked my Facebook and seen a kid I went to school with posted something like.. "killed huge 8 gonna post a pic in a minute" Sure enough he posts a picture with the same 8 I saw, in the same truck, and at the same store. I called him out and a few other guys also saw it and joined in.


Another kid accidentally killed three deer in one shot with his crossbow.
