As they get to the deer stand the hunter tells his wife to get in the stand and sit very still and if a deer comes out, shoot it.
The hunter leaves his wife on the stand and starts walking to his stand.
After walking for about five minutes he hears the loud boom of a rifle echoing through the woods from the direction of his wife’s stand.
He thinks, wow! My wife must have just shot a deer!
So he turns back and heads to her stand.
But when he gets there, he sees his wife arguing with a game warden.
He hears his wife yelling at the game warden, “get away from my deer!”
The game warden yells back,
“look, I already told you, this is not a deer. I should have you arrested for such negligence with a firearm!”
The hunter’s wife is so pissed at this point that she loads a round into her deer rifle and points it right at the game warden’s face and says, “
This is a deer. I shot it. It’s my deer. Now step away or I will blow your head off.”
The game warden slowly puts his hands up as he’s staring down the barrel of her loaded deer rifle.
He then nervously says,
“Okay, Ma’am. I was wrong. I see now that it is a deer. But before you take it away, can I get my saddle off of it?”
