NEW YORK - Alexandra Broseus grabs a shotgun, lifts it to her slender shoulder, pumps, and readies her aim.

Seconds later, she's firing furiously, gunning down the animated deer darting across the screen of this video game inside a popular, hipster bar in Manhattan called Horseshoe.

When the shooting ends and the adrenaline wanes, Broseus — wearing a zebra-striped dress _ brings the plastic barrel to her lips and blows the imaginary smoke into the air.

In my area of Michigan you have to use a shotgun for deer. I've never used more than 3 rounds to bring one down though.

My sister is addicted to Cabela's big hunt, and my brother has a hilarious game where the deer hunt the men and use calls like 'look, a new Z-71 with the keys in it'.

I didn't know it was an actual strip. Something I saw here a while ago and posted.

Do they have a link to any others?

That is one of the two most memorable Bloom County cartoons ever. I have been telling post-Bloom County people about it for many years. What a classic!

Ditto. Virtual hunting ain't the same as getting bugs in your teeth.

My 6 year old granddaughter called it the "Reindeer Game".

"You know, where you get to shoot the reindeer!"

Mines vintage 1957. I don't have a good slug barrel for it yet though...

I'll never quite get it... deer hunting with shotguns just seems somehow wrong. Deer hunting should be done with rifles. It just should be. :-)

Maybe you are talking about yours but that doesn't look like an autoloader IMHO

Maybe closer to an 870 not that it matters - the arcade guys just want it to look - you know - mean.
