Anybody ever touched a live, wild Whitetail in a hunting situation? I was standing on a very sharp ridge with a heavy gametrail

    Let me just say that touching the eye of an animal without it moving doesn't necessarily mean it is dead. I did that and a couple minutes later, as I relaxed, an elk started kicking and thrashing its rack around. Could have been nasty if I hadn't walked around him.

    Yep, He only took a few steps and went back down. I came back later with my 235 lb brother in law in case he wanted to start more trouble.

    Idaho, You are right, I should've let her pass unmolested. I am lucky I didn't get stomped. She was tired, breathing heavy, looked like she'd been pushed all morning. Buckhunter, did you get that buck after it jumped up?

    Had a young fork horn whitetail stick his head inside of the ground blind I was sitting in. I had to assist him in getting his head back out once he got a more thorough assessment of the situation. He also blew snot all over me and the blind.

    When I was about ten, on one of my first hunting trips, my dad and I were sitting in the same elevated blind together. Being that it was one of my first hunting trips, I was very excited and wouldn't fall asleep. My dad did however. After about 2 hours, I looked up and saw a red-tailed hawk perched on my dad's rifle barrel. As soon as my dad woke up, the hawk flew away. That was one of the coolest experiences I have ever had while hunting.

    This past summer the White river where I live flooded over more than usual.
    The river was flowing right across my uncle's cornfield that's right across th road from my house. That day, we must have seen a half dozen deer running across the road to the woods behind our house. Two of the deer that came out of the field were fawns without mothers. We watched them for a while before we realized that they were motherless and then tried to catch them to take them to a deer rescue farm in southern IN.after several attempts we finally caught them (they are very fast and very strong even when they are still only a few months old.) Unfortionately, we had to keep them penned-up for about a week before we could take them to an animal shelter. I have pictures of the deer that I will try to post some time in the next week.

    Twice I've been close enough to touch but never have.

    However, early in my bowhunting career, around 1984, I shot a nice eight point. I watched it run off and die. I climbed down from my tree a few minutes later, pulled out my knife, grabbed the leg and spread him out to field dress him. Then I poked the knife right next to his important parts. He didn't like that too well and stood right up to the point I almost was riding him like a horse. I dived behind the closest tree.

    I'll never do that again.

    My brother was putting on a drive, a doe came out and up the fence line that I was standing next to. I was behind an evergreen tree and she walked by at about a foot, I thought what the heck and reached out and poked her in the side. She took off and didn't look back.

    I almost had to kick or shoot one in the head to get it away from me. I was squirrel hunting, sitting against a sapling with a low branch drooping over my head. Heard a noise coming in , I raised my shotgun thinking I was going to shoot a squirrel on the ground. Two very large does came thru the brush with their noses to the ground and stopped at my boot. I kept the gun up with my cheek plastered to the stock. The lead doe kept trying to look around my gun barrel attempting to figure out what I was. Finally they moved off. I would have shot if needed, I've seen those youtube videos of deer kicking ass.

    I shot a buck one year that was running right towards me, I had to jump out of the way as he piled up into the exact spot where I was sitting. I came very close to being gouged by his 6x6 rack. I would not advise touching a wild animal that does not know you are there. It would be a good way to get yourself stomped. When startled wild animals are inclined to sudden violent acts, and they do not understand the words stop and no.

    Yes! I was out ice fishing with some buddies when a little fawn ran right up to us. It stood there letting us pet it for about an hour. It was the craziest thing i ever saw.
