MO: Wounded Deer Attacks Hunter
Wounded Deer Attacks Hunter
SEDALIA, Mo. (Dec. 2) - A hunter bagged a big buck on the second day
of firearms season, but the kill caused him a lot of pain. Randy
Goodman, 49, said he thought two well-placed shots with his .270-caliber
rifle had killed the buck on Nov. 19. Goodman said the deer looked dead
to him, but seconds later the nine-point, 240-pound animal came to life.
The buck rose up, knocked Goodman down and attacked him with his
antlers in what the veteran hunter called "15 seconds of hell."
"I felt his front legs go over my face," Goodman said.
The deer ran a short distance and went down, and died after Goodman
fired two more shots. Soon, Goodman started feeling dizzy and noticed
his vest was soaked in blood.
So he reached his truck and drove to a hospital, where he received
seven staples in his scalp and was treated for a slight concussion and
