Kicker – Stag bags hunter’s gun

MARY REICHARD, HOST: Calling all deer hunters! Beware of a deer in the Czech Republic packing heat.

Here’s what happened. 

Several hunters along with a hunting dog were staked out in the forest. The dog spooked the deer, causing the panicked stag to run straight at the hunter.

The deer’s antlers tore the man’s sleeve and snagged the strap of his .22- caliber Hornet rifle in his antlers, then scurried away. 

Another hunter reported seeing a deer with a gun about a mile away.  

Revenge of the beasts! As though 2020 couldn’t get any worse.
