Sitting in the turkey woods, I’ve had some pretty close calls. Mostly with birds, mice and even a snake or two. Never an up close and personal with a whitetail deer. This young buck decides to see how close he can get to the group of camo clad hunters. Turns out he gets pretty close! I think this turkey hunt was over once the hunt turned into a petting zoo. Regardless, it is still a pretty cool experience in the turkey woods. Watch as this Indiana turkey hunt takes an unexpected twist and see what this buck does!
“Some daring deer approached a group of hunters in central Indiana and one was so unafraid that it licked the barrel of a shotgun and allowed one of the men to stroke its neck.”
“Perhaps they knew the men were hoping to bag a turkey?”
