A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Head-On Deer Crash
While riding his long-board down a long, curving road in the Ozarks for a Fayettechill Clothing Company promotional film shoot, Jared Henry struck a deer head-on. The impact resulted in him sliding on the pavement on his stomach at 40 mph and the deer somersaulting to the side of the road.
According to information posted with the video, Henry had put on his Local Dave button-down before starting the ride. That item of clothing is being credited with saving the skin on his belly.
After the crash, Henry managed to gather his composure, jump back on the board and completed two more runs for the film.
If you take a closer look you can see another deer running across the road before the second deer got hit by the boarder in a curve. No word on the condition of the deer, but from the looks of the video, it took a pretty hard hit. Being a smaller deer it made not have been as lucky as Jared was in our wild outdoors.
