  • The Buck Who Carried His Rival’s Head (Deer Survives 2 Months w/ Severed Head Locked in Its Antlers)

    The Buck Who Carried His Rival’s Head While it may look like a grisly trophy, the story behind the picture of the antler-locked bucks above is one of survival and endurance. I recently spoke with Luke Laha, a wildlife management instructor in Kansas, about how he and his students rescued an antler-locked deer that had been carrying around the head of his rival. So how did this deer come to be wearing such bizarre headgear? Laha said that there was once a body attached to that head, before the coyotes came. Laha works as an instructor at Pratt Community College’s...

    Anyone catch this show last night? It is definetely for a small market of viewers. Like me. I loved it. The content interests me. Of course, this coming from someone who's favorite TV program is Duck Dynasty. This show will never take off like Duck Dynasty, but I thought it was fairly entertaining. One reason I like it is because, as I was watching, I was thinking that the left is going to have a fit about these hunters are 'killing defensless deer". I say they are not killing defensless deer... they are killing delicious meat. Besides, the deer have...

    Hunters and homeless people in Louisiana are righteously outraged after state health officials forced a homeless shelter to throw out nearly a ton of perfectly good venison. The meat that had been donated to the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission could have fed more than 3,000 people. Instead, it was tossed in trash bins by officials from the Department of Health and Hospitals who say that state law prohibits the serving of venison in homeless shelters. Not only did the officials toss the meat, they doused it with Clorox to make sure it couldn’t be eaten by animals or, presumably, people. “Deer...

Deer Deter is an automated electronic system designed to keep wild deer and other large animals from running into oncoming traffic in the dark of night. Using a combination of light and sound, it literally stops the animals in their tracks as cars pass by.

    About a half-million Minnesotans will hit the woods and fields for this weekend's start of the firearms deer hunting season, the biggest annual outdoors event outside the walleye fishing opener. It's more than a hunt. It's a prelude to a feast. Roughly 8 million pounds of meat will be harvested from the state's robust deer herd this season, the vast majority of it Saturday and Sunday. It's lean, high-protein and free-range.

Metro UK reported this week that the girl, Mekeeda Austin, who lives in Brickhill in Bedford, also threatened to "hunt down" Santa's reindeer so she could "cook them and serve their meat to homeless people on Xmas day." The girl said she was mostly joking.

    Associated Press Thousands of pounds of venison donated to food pantries this year has become a contentious gift in three states. Officials in North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa warn that the meat could be contaminated by lead from bullets. Hunting groups are calling it an overreaction. "It's alarmist and not supported by any science," said Lawrence Keane, a vice president and lawyer for the Newton, Conn.-based National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry. "High quality protein is now taken out of the mouths of needy, hungry people." North Dakota health officials on Wednesday told...

By Winston Ross Sept. 19, 2007 - Had he been a hunter, and had the mottled white doe that tumbled down a hill into his rural Oregon driveway six years ago been an adult, Jim Filipetti could have ponied up $19, applied for a deer tag and gunned the animal down.

Three people were attacked by deer within minutes of each other Tuesday on a footpath at Southern Illinois University, police said Wednesday. One doe probably was responsible for all three attacks, said Todd Sigler, the school's public safety chief. One worker needed stitches for a gash on his forehead, another suffered cuts, bruises and a sprained wrist, and a student was...

"It's versatile," he said. Since its inception in 1991, Hunters for the Hungry has given away more than...

    Deer and elk that are infected with mad cow-like disease, known as chronic wasting disease (CWD), carry infectious agents called prions in their leg muscles, indicating that those handling and eating infected deer meat may contract the same disease, University of Kentucky researchers reported on Jan. 26 in the journal Science. This newfound evidence is shocking because the public has been informed that the infectious prion protein for CWD was only present in parts of the nervous system such as brains and backbones. It was thought in the past that only nervous tissues from infected deer were susceptible to spreading...

He went back to check on the noise and found the deer. “I was peeking around the corner when the deer came out of the bedroom,” said Goldsberry. The deer ran down...

    VERONA, N.Y., April 7 - For years, David L. Smith cooked wild game for his Fire Department's annual fund-raising sportsmen banquet. It was his way to help out after he retired from the department's volunteer corps. At this year's banquet, on March 13, more than 300 townsfolk sampled his dishes - the venison meatballs, chili and patties. Three weeks later, Mr. Smith was trying to forget the whole affair with a whiskey at the local V.F.W. "My wife said they'd come to get me," he said. Through unlucky circumstance, tissue samples from a deer that one farmer donated for the...

    More hunting within Pittsburgh's city limits is needed to thin the city's growing deer herd, according to state Game Commission officials. The deer herd has swelled over the past decade to somewhere in the thousands and growing, though hard numbers are difficult to come by, the commission said. Deer can be seen in populated areas because they've learned to live among humans who generally leave them alone, according to the commission.

    Dear Antonio: Thank you for your recent email concerning a picture of a deer posted on my website ( www.DrAdams.org ). Your email asked how I could kill and eat such a beautiful creature with a clean conscience. Actually, that is a two-part question. The “how can I kill it” part would take too long to answer. I recommend the Outdoor Life Network (OLN) for tips on how to harvest a healthy buck. But the “how can I eat it” part is a little simpler. First, you need to decide whether venison is right for you. I would suggest starting...

    There are 1.6 million deer in Pennsylvania, so many that they are eating themselves out of forests, farms and parts of their home range. The voracious herd has prevented tree regrowth in vast tracts of the commonwealth's commercially valuable hardwood forests, eats millions of dollars of farm crops and collides with thousands of cars and trucks, causing damage and death. Yet there aren't enough deer for some hunters, who aren't seeing as many through their rifle scopes as they did a couple of years ago. Those hunters now want the state to go back to rules that would put greater...

But there have been some American and British cannibals, with the odd Russian as well. What may be an EU speciality is that apparently cannibalism is not a crime - though using wooden chopping boards may be. Somehow, one would...

    MILWAUKEE (AP) Wisconsin deer hunters are donating the proceeds of this year's early deer hunt to food banks. Nearly four-thousand deer already were donated as of last week. The state's venison donation program takes deer killed outside the chronic wasting disease eradication zones to food pantries. Laurie Fike is coordinator of the Department of Natural Resources program. She says this year's deer donations could top ten-thousand after the state's nine-day gun season later this month. Fike says hunters typically donate about two-thirds of their kill. This year's spike also is attributed to the state's Earn-a-Buck program. In some areas, hunters...

    Very few people like the idea of shooting Bambi's mother. But there may be no better way to slow the rapid expansion of deer populations that are devastating ecosystems in many areas of the country. At least 20 million white-tailed deer are ranging the nation at the moment, a huge jump from only 500,000 in 1900, according to a recent report by Andrew C. Revkin in The Times. They plunder farm crops and alter the ecology of forests by eating the low-lying vegetation and destroying the seedlings needed for new growth. In the process, they displace many smaller animals...

Meanwhile, a security guard called Montgomery County police, and a crowd (including several children) began to gather. "I sat on the curb and stroked the deer's head," Cynthia writes. "He responded by opening his eyes and putting his head in...
