Who stole the deer?

A quick story for the rainy weekend.

My brother-in-law Jason is a bow hunter. He has a very nice life-like target, a buck with antlers. He and a friend spend time practicing from the tree stand to be well prepared for hunting season.

He went to the tree stand and discovered the target was missing. You can’t leave anything unattended these days, can you? Jason looked around and found the target. The “thief” was obvious.

A bear hauled the target around and took a bite out of its neck before giving up. I bet he was disappointed…doesn’t even taste like chicken.

Stay dry and warm!
