FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) — A hunter from Fergus Falls will have a story to tell at deer camp for years to come.
Don Stock says he’s a bit stiff and sore but glad to be alive after he was attacked by an injured buck while he and his hunting party were driving some land near his farm during the current deer hunting season.
Stock says he spotted the buck laying on the ground and thought it was dead. Then the deer’s ear twitched and everything changed. The deer scrambled up and charged Don, slamming into him with its head and antlers and throwing him to the ground. The hunters believe the deer had been shot shortly before Stock discovered it and was delirious. Stock tells WDAY-TV he’s done hunting for the season.
