Believe It? Or Not....

A story sent to me by email.
Twenty years ago, a friend of mine went deer hunting in northern Missouri with his father-in-law. He shot his deer and hauled it back to the truck on a gravel road. He was sitting in his pickup, waiting for Derwood(his father-in-law) to come out of the timber.

After an hour and a half, here comes Derwood. You have to know this guy was 5' 8", around 300 lb, and in fairly poor health.

He is walking behind a doe, holding it's tail, and guiding it by using his shotgun barrel to guide it by rapping it on the side of the head.

Turns out, he had a head shot, with a 12 GA slug, which only hit a glancing blow, and stunned the deer.

He walked that deer right up to the rear end of the pickup, shot it dead, and they were on their way!

I am a fisherman, so am prone to tall tales, but I swear, these stories I've told you are true!

Over a period of 47 years(started hunting alone at 7) of hunting and fishing, you tend to accumulate a number of them.
I would love to have seen that.

You like that, I have a simular story that I know is true. I'll post on blog in a day or two.
