I've done that. I disrecommend the experience.

We have some Vietnamese around the neighborhood who regularly take deer the old fashioned way ~ jump on them and break their necks.
This part of Fairfax county has about 50,000 deer. The Northern part has maybe 65,000 or more. Otherwise it's fairly urban. The government continues to dither on a way to reduce these herds ~ it was so bad the last three years I only needed to mow my lawn about 6 times since it was getting cropped nicely by deer.

I haven't tried that, but I did get treed by a pack of hogs last summer. I was out hiking and saw them coming up the trail toward me, so I shot up a nearby maple and let them pass. There were 12-14 piglets, 8-9 juveniles, 3 sows, and big old boar who looked to be in the 375-400 pound range and had an impressive set of tusks.
As he passed under me, he stopped and looked up at me. You could almost see the calculations going through his mind as how best to knock me off my perch.
