We don't have the deer's account because, after losing the kick-boxing and wrestling portions of this North Woods triathlon, Christianson shot the eight-point whitetail buck, which had brought antlers and attitude and a strong left hoof to the fight but nothing to match Christianson's 30-06 rifle.

HAH! F**K you, deer!

Seriously, fark deer. 180 lb pigeons with feet. Since we've killed off all their natural predators, they exist mainly to cause damage to cars and gardens. Deer are the very reason hunting season is a good idea.

This is not far from me, in fact I know that area well and you absolutely have to read this in the accent from old guy shoveling his driveway in Fargo, because I guaran-damn-tee that's how this guy talks. This story says it all about the people up here and it is so damn endearing.

Maybe on towards late December... after all the fresh venny's been gone for a few weeks. Say, on Lutefisk night... you might get away wit it.
Mebbe not.

The deer tried to claim the territory. Money says they don't come back.

Good for him. The deer are doing their best to overpopulate and screw up the forests up here by decimating the undergrowth/new growth. Once they lose their fear of humans the stupid buggers get real troublesome as well.
Venison jerky can be pretty tasty if done right.

I was thinking exactly that when I read: "He was pummeling me, standing on his hind legs and hitting me with the front ones. He hammered me good, rapid fire, and I thought, `Well, this isn't good."

Given that it mentions the deer was acting odd, I hope they test it for rabies, which is rare for deer but happens, and BFE(mad cow can happen to deer as well).

Those are some bad black eyes. Saw the unenlarged version of the picture and thought, "Zalgo!"

You know the thing about a deer. He's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at you, doesn't seem to be living.
That's why I'll never where blaze camo when I go into the woods again.

they come vicious here.

i have fond memories of the buck breaking into the governors mansion...

Nope:

FTA: Blane Klemek, wildlife supervisor for the DNR's Detroit Lakes area, said the deer carcass was sent to the University of Minnesota Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory in St. Paul.

Why does this whole thing remind me of this sound clip:

"But this one, I would stomp my feet and it wouldn't go away."

Well no shiat old man, you farking CHALLENGED him in deer language! I can speak from personal experience (having had a similar incident when I was 16) and stomping is the way a buck challenges a rival for territory. In my case, the young 4-point challenged me at a distance of 20 feet by stomping and "Blowing" ( you hunters will know what I mean).

After realizing that I was about to get stomped into a mudhole by this deer I made myself as threatening as I could and stomped back and yelled at him. he stood his ground against my rather ludicrous display of superiority for about 10 minutes before he gave a final snort and turned to bound away. The last I saw he was heading down into a hollow at a decent trot, tail held high.

CSB done

I think that quote was from his wife when she was confronted a few days before the attack.

You are right. Still sounds as though the buck was challenging the old man for territory. And to be fair, the old guy has a pair that clank. I mean, grabbing and throwing the deer with a classic wrestling move in hand to hoof combat is pretty impressive. What puzzles me is why he took so long to resort to getting his gun and ending the buck's assaults?
