Man Kills Buck With Bare Hands in Bedroom
The Associated Press ^ | Tue Nov 1, 9:39 PM ET

Posted on 11/02/2005 5:24:09 AM PST by 300magnum

BENTONVILLE, Ark. - It looked like a crime scene, but no charges will be filed after Wayne Goldsberry killed a buck with his bare hands in his daughter's bedroom.

The engagement lasted an exhausting 40 minutes, but Goldsberry finally subdued the five-point whitetail deer that crashed through a bedroom window at his daughter's home Friday. When it was over, blood splattered the walls and the deer lay on the bedroom floor, its neck broken.

Goldsberry was at his daughter's home when he heard glass breaking. He went back to check on the noise and found the deer.

"I was standing about like this peeking around the corner when the deer came out of the bedroom," said Goldsberry, demonstrating while peering around his kitchen wall. The deer ran down the hall and into the master bedroom — "jumping back and forth across the bed."

"I could tell he was really tearing up the place back there," Goldsberry said.

Goldsberry entered the bedroom to confront the deer and, after a brief struggle, emerged to tell his wife to call police. After returning to the bedroom, the fight continued. Goldsberry finally was able to grip the animal and twist its neck, killing it.

"He was trying to get up a corner wall and I just came in behind him and grabbed him by the horns and just started pushing down," said Goldsberry.

Goldsberry, sore from the struggle, dragged the dead animal out of the house.

"He got kicked several times. He was walking bowlegged for awhile," Deputy Doug Gay said.

Benton County Sheriff Keith Ferguson said that when he arrived he found the deer dead in the front yard. Goldsberry intended to have the deer processed for its meat.

Gay said that, this time of year, bucks that see their reflection in windows often charge them, believing the mirror image to be a rival.

On Monday in Pine Bluff, the principal of Coleman Elementary School rid his building of a deer by opening a door. Students were preparing for dismissal Monday when a deer crashed through a window and bounded through a hallway.

The buck floundered on the school's slick floor for about three minutes exiting via a door along the side of a hallway. Principal Bill Tietz said the deer was slightly injured from the glass and lost an antler. Tietz says the animal leapt a six-foot fence after leaving the school.

"He got kicked several times. He was walking bowlegged for awhile," Deputy Doug Gay said.

Sounds like the buck got a few shots of his own in.

Rifle or a bow and arrow would have taken that buck out in a second. But the tussel sounded like it was a bit of fun. Glad the human won. Could have gone the other way.

He called the cops but he still had to spend 40 minutes trying to kill this animal? "Great, cops are eating donuts again so I have to kill this thing with my bare hands."

This guy won't have any problems with his daughter's dates overstepping boundaries.

A friend of my my father-in-law's met his daughter's fiance for the first time about a week before they were to be married (she lives out of town). Before they left, the friend took a bullet and threw it to the fiance and said, "don't do anything to hurt my daughter, because if you do, this will be coming at you a lot faster, and I won't be throwing it".

He's one damned lucky guy. A deer kick is nothing to laugh at. Those hooves are sharp and a kick can easily be fatal.

Extraordinary powers come to a man or woman whose home is threatened. Intruders should beware. These powers are always present, though latent until called upon. There is no limit to the powers available but unrecognized under ordinary circumstances.

Solutions to perplexing problems sometimes come in a dream.

We are all aware of the astonish powers of idiots savant.

The world would appear quite different if our eyes had evolved to see a band of the electromagnetic spectrum different from the narrow range of visible light.

How strange would be the sky if our eyes could detect gases, such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen, hydrogen sulfied, methane, et al, rather than merely water vapor.

How strange would be the world of form if we could detect the emply spaces within and around the molecules.

How strange would the the world if we could detect radio and television broadcasts without special equipment.

A few years a grandmother killed a lion with a butcher knife when it entered the home where her grandchildren were sleeping.

A few years ago, a man killed a lion with his bare hands when it attacked his daughter.

Those who think the ordinarily perceived reality--the world of form--is in fact reality are oblivious to the infinite reality in which we live and to the illusory nature of the maya.

This guy now has the ultimate hunting story. He should hangout in bars frequented by sportsmen during the coming deer season.

"Wow, an 8-point buch, huh? Nice. What'd you take him with? 30-30? Yeah, that'll get the job done. Good work. Of course, I personally find firearms to be a little overkill. For example, my last buck..."

After that fight? Gamey as hell.

I killed a little one the same way after hitting it with a car (broken femur/hip). It wasn't easy, and I have never been without a firearm and a good knife since.

Once when I was out bowhunting, I saw a buck coming through the woods in my direction and in my "buck fever" my arrow slipped from my bow and fell to the ground. Seconds later, the buck was standing directly below me.

I remember thinking at the time that I should jump down and "bulldog" the deer and try to break it's neck, but I decided against that after realizing that even if I survived and killed the deer, I'd have to have an autopsy performed on the carcass just so my friends would believe that I'd killed it with my bare hands...

[That's my story and I'm stickin' to it... and hunters NEVER lie...) ;)
