Two deer tangled in same rope rescued by clever Texas game warden

Texas game warden came up with a clever way to free these two bucks.

 A Texas game warden came to the rescue of two bucks that were trapped in an unusual way—both deer had their antlers tangled in the same nylon rope and were pulling against each other around the pole of a clothesline in the backyard of someone’s house.

 The unidentified Texas game warden in Comal County used a clever strategy to free the animals, which were thrashing about with their survival in jeopardy:


 


The Texas game warden strategically drove his vehicle up to the clothesline pole, climbed atop the hood of his vehicle “so I don’t get gored,” and reached down and cut the nylon rope to set the two bucks free. The deer then ran off no worse for wear.

 “Nice job warden,” wrote one commenter on the Texas Parks and Wildlife YouTube channel.

 “Above and beyond! Good job,” wrote another.

 Touché.

Hunters befriend deer while hunting for wild turkey (video)

Follow Outdoors 720 on Facebook 

Stay away from hunters. That’s usually Lesson No. 1 for deer in the wild. Stay far, far away. And, generally, most deer do stay far, far away from hunters.

So imagine the surprise of hunters Steve Hunt and Rick Lehman on the first day of turkey hunting season deep in the woods of southern Tuscarawas County in Ohio -- when a deer walked up to their turkey blind.

"She walked in and started playing with our turkey decoys," Hunt told newsnet5.com in Cleveland.

Then, the brave deer inched closer to the camouflaged hunters hiding in the blind.

Soon, the hunters were feeding the doe potato chips, and one hunter went so far as having the deer take a potato chip from his mouth.

Apparently, this doe never learned Lesson No. 1.

Hunt caught the entire episode on video, and newsnet5.com gives us the entire story right here (sorry about the short ad):  





And no, in case you missed it, the hunters never once thought about shooting the deer.

From newsnet5.com:
"There's a lot of ethics behind hunting it’s not a matter of just going out and killing animals, I don't go out and kill animals, I hunt animals and yes I do eat what I shoot," said Hunt.
"It makes you look at hunting a whole different way," said Lehman.
 No word, however, on whether they bagged any wild turkey.
