Sad. Remember to give them time and assume they are dangerous until confirmed dead.

Arkansas hunter killed by deer he thought he had just shot dead

Thomas Alexander, 66, was hunting near the Ozark mountains when he shot the buck and watched it collapse.

Assuming the animal was dead, Mr Alexander went to check on the body - at which point the deer stood back up and attacked him.

He managed to call his wife, who rang the emergency services, but he was declared dead later in hospital.

Keith Stephens, from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, told local media that Mr Alexander's death was "one of the stranger things that's happened" in his 20-year career.

We are all going to go one day. He died doing what he liked and by an awesome animal. Is better then dying on a bed like a vegetable. RIP hunter and cobdolances to the family.
Younger hunters, practice practice practice. Know your weapon and **** placement.

True enough. I'd personally rather die peacefully, surrounded by loved ones, instead of dying alone in the woods over several hours, having 20 or more years of hunts cut out from under me by making a simple mistake. A poignant reminder that deer are superathletes and not an animal to take lightly.
