This story from Deer Camp 2014 is every hunter’s nightmare. Bobby Neames of Clinton, La., still has harrowing visions of the deer attacking him on a hunt the morning of Christmas Eve.
Walking up to the buck after shooting it, he said the big six-pointer leapt 20 feet, gored him and threw him 10 feet. Hell-bent on killing him, it continued to attack then walked off with his gun, leaving him making statements like this:
“It was just a freak thing that happened.”
“This deer has just lunged out 20 feet in the air from laying down with his neck half blown off.’
“I knew I was hurt bad because I felt it rip my leg open. He threw me like I was nothing.”
“Man, you let him whip you and take your gun?"
