Minnesota man is bloodied, bruised after deer attack
Associated Press ^ | August 9, 2012 | CHUCK HAGA

FERTILE, Minn. - The way Mark Christianson tells it, in his lilting Old Country accent, the deer started the fight.

"I was going out to finish spraying the soybeans," he said. "I stepped out a side door, and we saw each other, and he started coming closer.

"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.' I wasn't winning, so I grabbed him and tackled him and we both went down on the ground."

Any, note the “ANY” animal that is not afraid of man needs the “Wisdom of the Guru”.

More specifically, “When gunpowder speaks, beasts obey”.

From the article it would appear Christianson and his wife let the deer establish itself as the Alpha Male over several days before the showdown.

Bold deer = volunteer venison.

Deer eating your vegetables = a venison garden.

I think you mean a venison salad.

If there are no more greens, you’re left with meat.

My father, in his youth, many years ago, saw a deer (small) tangled in a fence on their farm....he rescued the deer which then beat the He— out of him....he enjoyed telling about that until he died!!!!!(not as a result of the deer attack) !!!

We know a man who was almost killed by a buck deer. Our nephew saved him and was badly injured himself.

When it is the right time of the year for deer to find “girlfriends” the bucks will become very aggressive. Especially the medium size ones that are being kept away from the does by the larger bucks. They have something to “prove” and will frequently do things that any of the other time of the year they wouldn’t.

I had a lab mix that loved to chase them. But he soon found out that when those horns where in velvet, they didn’t run near as easily.

I walked out the back door in a hurry without looking one time and walked right at a doe and two younguns that were about ten feet away. Scared the crap out of me and her. Lucky she decided to move off rather than protect.
