    Par for the course, especially this particular guy. Over the course of a few years i saw him accidentally crap in the hood of his coveralls, fall out of a tree, get a face full of stomach contents when gutting a deer, and have various kinds of trouble sighting in every firearm he owned.

    Cousin and I were hunting a place several years back. Ended up leaving empty handed in the afternoon.
    We were going down the little 1.5 lane road and came upon a pickup truck sitting on the shoulder. Guy was still sitting in his truck, but his dog was raising cane on the side of the road along the fence.
    As we get closer we see a young deer lying on the side of the road wrapped around a fence post. Cousin rolled down the window to ask the other feller if he wanted the deer (assuming he had just hit it). Guy said no so he and cousin head over to recover the deer while I pull ahead to park the truck and trailer.
    'Bout the time got there they start tugging on this young button buck, and apparently cousin has some healing powers because as soon as he grabbed the deer's leg, the thing come back to life!!!
    Now both of these men are trying to get this deer untangled from the barbed wire while getting the snot beat out of them. Not a whole lot i could do. Between these two grown ass men and the Rottweiler, i thought they had it handled.
    Cousin pulls the 9mm from his hip and shoots it in the head... twice before it was dead again!
    They get the deer out of the fence and on the trailer. Guy then tells us he didn't hit the deer after all. It apparently jumped off the road. Hit the locust fence post and was knocked out cold.
    I told him, "that would have been some useful information about 10 minutes ago."

    Hopefully another Tree Thrashing Guy story will help everyone with their day. DH this one is similar to Billy's story (R.I.P). One weekend we had more than our normal amount of people in camp, outside our normal 4 guys we had a guy from Florida and Louisiana. Both of those guys were friends of Tree Thrashers. After one evening of bow hunting Thrasher came back to camp saying he had shot a Monster Buck right at dark that had came in Thrashing Trees on a field edge. He said he knew the deer because it was the second night in a row it had came in like this. Even I was excited about this because finally we have a blood trail on one of these bucks he sees. Excitement was running very high in camp when Thrasher says "we need a dog". This was 20 years ago and well before blood trailing dogs was ever talked about in our area as far as we knew. I had been hunting with Thrasher since I was 14 and he never said we needed a dog. The level of anticipation of finding this buck was running wild at this point. The only dog we knew of was the guy we leased the farm from and he had a Dalmatian. I'm dying laughing as I type this because we had not even seen the blood trail yet and he said we need a dog. So Thrasher gets permission to take the landowners Dalmatian and 6 guys plus the dog take up this blood trail. The blood trail was not good at all and nowadays we could have used a dog that was trained in blood trailing deer. 2.5 hours later, 6 guys, and a playful Dalmatian we walk up on a 100lb DOE!! You could imagine what everyone was saying after 2.5 hours of the fiasco tracking this Monster Buck.
