Great, now the deer is armed

I thought the deer ate the guy, then the guy's lawyer tried to get his friend to kill the buck so they could get the Czech guy out, but the friend shot a doe instead.

When asked why, the friend said 'only an idiot believes a lawyer who claims the Czech is in the male'

I am guessing they were hunting something else and the deer just happened to cross their path.

people complain about .223 being used to hunt deer as too wimpy to make a clean kill..  22 hornet is wimpier

"The rifle, which the hunter had slung over his left arm -- fortunately without ammo -- slipped on the deer's antlers and disappeared with him," the police said.

Really gonna need the article author to expound on why he thought it important to emphasize that it was unloaded when the deer took it.

Maybe to reassure people that there was no danger of the firearm accidentally discharging and injuring anyone.

Maybe because the deer have trouble loading the rounds?

I grew up in the South with a bi-weekly deadbeat father who re-loaded his own ammo and hunted any and every creature outside of the city be it prized or a pest on water and across land. Did you know tobacco farmers HATE ground hogs? Because they're persistent-- violence is the only way really. Have you ever seen a duck taken down by a snapping turtle? I was 8 when Jaws came out-- I'd seen that shiat before.

My point is, in the America "neighborhood" I grew up in, had this happened to the numerous hunters I met and rarely saw more than two or three times again, the guy wouldn't have had to report the event. It would have been sufficiently hilarious for the gossip to have reached several deputies and the sheriff.

They'd have been out to console him within days.

But I can imagine other neighborhoods in America, especially now that the population has increased, that wouldn't believe this story and view it as grounds to keep an eye on somebody.

It does happen in some places with .22 Hornet (a bit more powerful than the most common .22), usually not the continental United States where hunters are drunk spray-and-pray types.  The Inuit use it for pretty much everything, and Europeans use it as well.

It's not a good choice for deer.  More of a varmint round.  I don't know where you get that belief that American hunters are spray-and-pray types.  That's not even remotely true.  Most use bolt action rifles, which is quite difficult to rapid fire multiple rounds.

I lived there for 6 years and I say it, but I'm among the minority. The Czechs I know hoped it would become a thing, but acknowledged from the beginning that it probably wouldn't catch on.

it's obvious he's setting up the deer to take the fall when hunter's wife is found dead with a bullet to the head.

Vlad_the_Inaner: people complain about .223 being used to hunt deer as too wimpy to make a clean kill..  22 hornet is wimpier

There isn't anything wrong with 223 as long as it is close in and relatively clear of bush (which essentially means shooting a deer 100-200 yards in a field or a plain). The concern is when you get out further you will definitely wound but may not kill.

It was actually one of the first small game rounds developed. A head shot to a deer would work which as far Trudeau is concerned that is ok (they were bragging about that happening which left more meat for the folks on the island) when bringing in NZ professional hunters using suppressed ARs to cull deer on an indigenous island rather sourcing Canadian hunters (who would more than willingly pay for the opportunity).

BTW, for those who don't know head shot is not ideal since that is one area that moves a lot with a deer so at best you miss at worst you now have a deer with half its face gone which is not a humane kill.

thanks for your contribution.

in other news, i've had two czech rifles: a vz24 and a vz58. both were great guns, especially the vz58, which was built from a part kit.

the czech mauser was like an overweight german mauser, had a massively thick stock/forward handguard and felt like a rifle with a beer belly. what really sucked about it was the bolt handle was straight, not cuved down in an elbow shape. this meant it was always banging into things in the safe. it also meant you had to take your face off the gun when you cycled the bolt in a way that made you completely lose your sight picture. FInally, the sights started at an optimistic 300m, so shooting at average range distances meant it was always at least 100m off, so it took a while to figure it out. In short, somewhere between an "ehhh" and a "meh" on the "Father Jack's Surplus gun Fun to shoot scale". Indeed was one of my least favorite milsurps. I think only the springfield 1903 i liked less.

the vz58 tho was neat. It was basically a milled higher quality AK. It was a bit finicky but just felt somehow higher quality, tho cant really back that up with anything other than purely anecdotal opinions. Didnt have it for very long, as i moved to switzerland shortly after assembling it and felt weird asking my mom to hang on to it. Bolt actions were fine but assaulty stuff seemed somehow wrong.

for csb.guns time with FJ, i'm FJ.

LockeOak: Were they deer hunting with a .22?


It's a .22 Hornet.  Much more powerful than a .22 LR or .22 Magnum, but still not really a big game cartridge.   Less powerful than a .223 Remington/5.56 NATO.

It may surprise you to learn I once owned a rifle in that caliber, a pre-1964 Winchester Model 70.

Based on the fact that they had dogs and a .22 Hornet, I'm guessing they were hunting foxes or something else that size, not deer.

I've hunted for a long time, decades in fact.  Never seen anyone armed and drunk in the woods, and never heard any evidence of "spray and pray" behavior.  Ever.  And the sound of gunshots carries for miles on a quiet, cold Fall morning.

Fark you and your anti-American attitude.

He's saying that this tale and the "gee Officers I lost the guns in a boat accident" have a common thread.  How to tell the cops they can't confiscate your rifle since it was lost (here's my tale.....Uh Deer snag got it , yeah that's it.  Darn deer,..... and nope no more rifle on this here farm Officer, honest)

The Pennsylvania Game Commission conducted deer culling operations in and around Valley Forge several years ago. The place was overrun with deer and the situation had to be addressed. As I understand it, the commission hired sharpshooters who used bait, blinds and .22s at close range to selectively kill deer. They may have used .22 Magnums, but I believe that they were concerned that too hot a load would travel too far in a heavily populated area.

More likely, they probably used hollow points or some other fragmenting on impact type of bullet in combination with head shots.

May have been hunting Roe Deer. They're quite a bit smaller than the whitetail all us North Americans are familiar with so a 22 Hornet would be a very good choice for a gun . CSB time. First time I saw a Roe deer I was quite hungover. Several were running along the road the car I was riding in was driving along. At first I thought they were jackalopes and was ready to quit drinking until the Germans, one of whom was a gamekeeper, in the car explained what they were along with their other specie of deer, the red deer, which is basically a small elk.
