Blowing Snot

I have a grandson that just turned 5 this year, and he is ALL about hunting and fishing. He carries his toy rifle every time he gets out of the house, in the yard ,just in case he sees a buffalo, or lion, or any of a dozen other make believe game animals, that cross his mind.

I live on the outskirts of town, and have a deer population about 50 yards from the house, although I don't hunt them, they have come in real handy for training every one of my kids to hunt over the years.

In September, I took him out to the old ground blind thats been there forever, and sat him next to me on a couple of milk crates. I explained to him that he had to stay real still, and quiet. After we had been sitting there probably 1/2 an hour, I heard something coming from behind us, that was going to come out right next to his side of the blind, and was to close for me to let him know ahead of time.

As the deer began to appear out of the corner of my eye, I could tell it was an old doe, that had been there for years, and was no more that 18" from the side of grandson before she caught us.

She let out that blowing sound, that we all know means YOUR BUSTED, right into his face. The hair blew up on the front of his head, she was so close. He jumped up, ran over the top of me, knocking me off of my crate, out the other side of the brush blind, and was 1/2 way home before I could catch him. I was laughing so hard I couldn't run. When we got back to the house Mrs. WBB asked him if he got to see a deer and he told her, and I quote " yes mi-mi but you don't want to shoot the does, they'll blow snot on you"

Great story and thanks for sharing

That is a great story and one that will be shared for many years to come. The first time I ever heard a deer do that, was many years ago and I thought it was one of my hunting buddies, trying to have some fun with me. I have heard more than one reason as to why they do this and have settled on the idea that it is a warming to the other deer. ....

I can also recall one cold snowy morning during deer season, whil sitting on a stump, a group of turkeys came up and one started picking at my shoe laces. ...

Be Safe !!!

My buddy and me didn't get to get us a buck this year, due to my ignorance on a four wheeler, but maybe next year.

Handsome guy he is too. Wonder how Mrs. WBB lets him out of her kitchen so easily to go hunting? I know mine wouldn't _

Chewie,

Feel free to re-post anything i've put on here. It wouldn't be on here if I cared about anyone else knowing.
Thanks to all you guys for the comments. I wish I could have gotten it on video some how, I would love to be able to play it back to him in a few years, like maybe his wedding day.

Wouldn't that be something. What a surprise that would have been. I like that idea there WBB. Maybe there's a next time down the road. Lets hope so
