Deer video

Recommended Posts

cylinder

Some friends of mine in Iowa were pheasant hunting a few weeks ago & came across 2 bucks with their antlers locked; one was dead and had been dead for quite a while. They took a video with a camera phone as they separated the antlers and let the live deer go. The link to the video is below; it takes about 14 min to watch and if you don't like rough language you should turn the volume down. The quality of the video isn't that great as it was taken with a cellphone camera and there was a lot of moving around. Notice the state of decomposition at the end of the clip. You may never see anything like this again.

You will need to have Quicktime 6.5 or greater and RealPlayer10 to watch it, and both will have to download additional plugins to view the .3g2 format. Windows versions should do that automatically, but I haven't been able to find the plugin for the Linux version yet.

THank you for sharing that video. THat would be crazy. Im impressed at how they handled the situation.

The only thing that could have made it cooler was if they could have tagged the ear with somehting saying to contact them if and when it would have been shot.

Very cool video.

First of all, Get a clue and remember this is a family forum. I hope this video gets deleted. Everyone is acting like juvenile delinquents. You should be ashamed to have posted it. Irresponsible, degrading and immature!!!

russ,

I disagree. Yes, they are young kids who were excited and didn't know exactly what to do at first. And yes you heard some cussing going on...big deal.

In the end they did the right thing and let the deer loose. If they wouldn't have done that it would have died along with the other buck. You can give the whole mother nature's plan argument, but I am still glad to see the buck run free.

I too agree they did the right thing by releasing the animal. Thats not what is offensive. knowing this is a family forum the video should have been kept to themselves. Young hunters or not it showed lack of responibility and common sense.

russ I think you are way out of line. They are younger guys and act like it. They did a great thing for that buck by helping him out and letting him go. Without them he would have died a slow miserable death.

Thanks for sharing the video and tell those guys they did a great job!!!

Russ, I understand that there are many people who don't like to hear swearing-- that's why I noted that if you don't want to hear that kind of language you should turn the volume down. It's not my intent to offend others.

I think that the video should be shared for it's value regarding how things happen in nature, and this is something that most of us never have seen nor will see again. That language is a part of our society, whether we like it or not, and in this case we have the option of turning off the sound.

My bad everyone. I inadvertantly missed the sentence warning of the language. Once again, I totally agree with the releasing the animal. That truly is a sight not many get to witness.

Wow! I kind of felt bad for him. Glad the guys let him go- shows more sportsmanship than slitting its throat. Congrats on the find!

They are definitely to be commended! If you are telling me you never let expletives out at an intense moment of excitement like that (especially at that age) then I'd say you weren't being honest with yourself or anyone else.

At first I was a little upset that it took them so long to get around to freeing them, but after they'd been locked for lord knows how many days, the extra 10 minutes probably wasn't that big a deal.

I'm saving that video!

The reason it took so long to start separating them was that they were waiting for other members of their group to come and help-- needed more hands. They had to break the racks to get them free.

Is the problem that the video won't download or that it won't play?

If it won't download, it could be a number of things-- try this, assuming you're using Internet Explorer, click Tools, then Internet Options. Click the Advanced tab, then Restore Defaults. close IE then open & try it again.

If it won't play, you probably don't have the latest version of Real Player. go to: http://www.real.com

Click the buttons for free download, then install it.

can someone place a link to a seperate site for this, I have tried everything to view this and cannot figure it out. Put me in a tree and I'm home, infront of a computer and I'm lost.

That link is the only place in the world that it's posted for download. The download should start when you click on the link. Try downloading it to the computer, then right-click the downloaded file, choose 'Open With' and choose RealPlayer. If you have dialup internet it will take forever; I think the file size is about 14mb.

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
