WHY ARE THEY WASTING MY TAX DOLLARS ON JERKY AND STEAK!

That video is awesome. Great work there. They really handled it well. Been a sh*tty week. Nice to see something awesome like that.

Cute!

Good job!

Still this thread could get ugly. Many regard deer as overabundant vermin.

So, I gotta share a not-my-CSB:

Bro is in the Navy, became a nuke tech. Went to power and prototype school (I think) in South Carolina. He calls my mom up one day, and in the background she hears a lot of commotion. She asks what's going on. Keep in mind that if he's caught drunk it's pretty much an insta-ticket home (I think AdSep--administrative separation--is the technical term, but someone more knowledgeable can correct me).

Bro: It's smells like piss.
Mom: What?
Bro: It's smells like piss. There's beer here.
Mom (having a vision of my bro's career vanishing before her eyes): There's  beer there?
Bro: . . . No, beer.
Mom: Dude, beer?? Why are you drinking???
Bro (after a moment of silence): Delta. . Echo. . Echo. . Romeo

/and thus a family appreciation for the phonetic alphabet was renewed

"...more than a quarter mile from shore.."? Did they farking fly there?

SquiggsIN: Last week, I was pretty shocked while standing on my back porch to look over and notice that 2 doors down they were field-dressing a deer in their backyard.  I would ask if they have a few pounds of meat to spare but, they have 4 kids and by the looks of everything they own they need the food themselves.

I wish i had some jerky... mmm


Don't they advertise hunting trips in the newspaper? Come on, make a day out of it.

That was cool, good on em.

Waiting for the state Dept of Environmental Management, or whatever they call it out there, to arrest or fine them for messing with a wild animal.
"You should have called us" -- so they could shoot them and take the meat or some other "solution" that they think is better and legal.

Good on 'em -- cool solution to the problem and the deer don't look any worse for the wear.  Always interesting to think about the story they could tell if they could talk to the rest of the herd like they can in the Far Side cartoons, though.

Gobobo: "...more than a quarter mile from shore.."? Did they farking fly there?


Lets see. I will have to assume that you know nothing about animals. Deer like to walk, run, stroll- whatever. They probably saw something that looked like food, and then it got colder and the ice got more slick. Deer and many animals can walk and run on ice, up to a point. If their hooves cannot get a grip on the ice- hooved animals become trapped. And then become prey to padded footed predators. Like Humans or cats. And let me tell you- when your nice kitty joins a pack of them and takes down a trapped deer- it aint pretty . Meow

You assume correctly, I thought a deer was a large amphibious vehicle. I will take on board your sage advice and, if I buy a cat, will make sure it's one of those with wings so it won't get caught on the ice. Then again, I live in the Arabian desert so there's little chance of that occurring. There was some snow in other parts of the country, though.  http://abcnews.go.com/International/story?id=80749

Did not watch the vid, however, when you blow them to shore using a helicopter, like was done here in Canada, come back and speak to me.

Bless those guys.  Plus, the Star Wars thing at the end made me LOL.

I came here for these... and I don't think that I'm proud of that.

How did the deer get all the way out there in the first place?
 
2013-12-06 08:02:12 AM  
My eel filled hovercraft is better.
 
2013-12-06 08:05:54 AM  
Looks like they edited out the part where they played crack-the-whip in the middle of the lake with the tied-up deer.

No, you're thinking of a llama!

Their "Holiday version" video was much more Fark-worthy.

These gys like to drag dumb animals off of the ice? They need to show up at the next Caps game...

Yep, there's an informal contest going on to see who can come up with the most ridiculous way to rescue ice-stranded deer. Towing with a hovercraft is good, but it's not really a contender.

About 10 seconds in represents the most confused a deer has ever been.

I remember that one... I actually thought they were using the fans from the hovercraft here to rescue this crew.

One long commercial.

Personal helicopters cost more than personal hovercraft AND aren't as cool.


/ Excellent headline subby!

Where did my life go wrong that I don't own a hovercraft company? Or a hovercraft for that matter?

No it isn't.

except even a 5th-grader could tell you that the plural of deer is 'deer', not 'deers'.

/and yes, I get the reference
