"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make
things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve
rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be
attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." -Thomas Jefferson,

|Three Aggies Hunting
Aggies went hunting together. Having had no luck in the blind, they
decided to walk around the deer lease and see if they could find any deer,
agreeing to meet back under a certain Live Oak in 2 hours. A couple of
hours later two of the Aggies were back, tired and irritated at having seen
nothing. Hearing some noise in the brush, one of them took a sound
shot. They were horrified to hear their buddy scream out in pain as
the bullet hit his arm.
A few hours later in the emergency room the doctor came out into the
waiting area shaking his head. Their friend was dead. "How can
he be dead?" asked the first Aggie, "It was only a flesh wound!"
"Well, boys," drawled the doctor, "it's true the wound didn't amount
to much. But you really shouldn't of field dressed him."

|3 deer hunters
Dave and Bubba took Dave's city boy cousin, Ken, hunting one time. It
was Ken's first time hunting but Dave and Bubba grew up hunting.
Dave advised his cousin that the rut was pretty much over so he should "Find
and follow the tracks. Once you see one, shoot him. If you kill one,
just drag it back to the cabin."
The next morning, Dave and Bubba got up at 4:00 AM with no problem. They had
a little trouble getting Ken to wake up, but finally they were all awake and
ready to go hunting. They picked up their rifles and headed out. Later in
the day, 2 shots were heard. Bubba approached from the east dragging a
nice big buck while Dave drug his in from the south. Bubba grinned at
Dave and said "Where'd you get that?" Dave replied, "Saw some tracks and
followed 'em. Saw the buck and shot him. You?" "Saw some tracks
and followed 'em. Saw the buck and shot him." replied Bubba.
They set to work and dressed out the deer. As the day wore on, there
was no sign of Ken. As dusk approached they got worried. Finally
they got their flashlights and began to search for him. They finally
found him. He was bruised, bloody and had scars all over him.
"What happened?" they asked.
He replied, "Well, I found some tracks and
followed them, but then the stupid train hit me!"
|How to Drag a Deer Out of the Forest
Two guys were out hunting when one of them
shoots a big 14 point buck, "Wow, that's the biggest set of antlers I've
ever seen in my life! " says one man. The other man agrees.
So they field dress the deer and each grab one hind leg of the deer and
proceed to drag the deer out of the woods. They were having the worst time
trying to drag the big deer out of the thick covered woods, the antlers were
catching on everything.
So they stopped to take a rest and one guy said to the other. " We need to
try dragging this deer out differently," the other guy agreed, so they
finally each grabbed one antler each and proceeded.
About a hour and a half later, one said to the other; " Man, this is
working a whole lot better this way."
The other one sighs and says "Yeah, but aren't we getting pretty far from

|An old deer hunter goes to the bar
An old deer hunter named Bill, dressed head to foot in camouflage, went into a bar
and ordered a drink. As he sat there sipping his whiskey, a young lady sat
down next to him.
After she ordered her drink she turned to the deer hunter and asked him,
"Are you a real deer hunter?"
To which he replied, "Well, I've spent my whole life in the woods, tracking
deer, stalking deer and shooting deer, so yes, I guess I am a real deer
hunter." After a short while he asked her what she was.
She replied, "I've never been in the woods. I am a lesbian. I spend my whole
day thinking about women. I get up in the morning thinking of women, when I
eat, shower, watch TV everything makes me think about women."
A short while later she left, and the deer hunter ordered another drink.
A couple sat down next to him and asked, "Are you a real deer hunter?"
The deer hunter replied, "Well I always thought I was a deer hunter, but I
just found out that I'm a lesbian."
|The deer hunter and the scotch
Two men go deer hunting. They settle down in their stand and start waiting
for the deer. This gets rapidly boring for one of them so he reaches into
his backpack and withdraws a bottle of 100 proof scotch.
"Want some?" he asks his deer hunting partner.
"No, I've got to concentrate on watching for deer."
"Okay..." he says and happily drains the bottle.
They go back to watching for deer. Again, the man gets bored and gets from
his backpack another bottle of scotch. "Want some." he asks again.
"No, thanks" is his reply.
"Your loss." he says and happily drains the bottle.
He's pretty sloshed by now, but goes back to help his friend watch for deer.
A minute later, a single deer walks up to their stand.
"Bang!!!" goes his partners rifle.
"Damn, missed it" his partner says.
The sloshed hunter waves his rifle in the general direction of the fleeing
deer. "Bang!!!" his rifle goes. He kills the deer straight out.
"Wow," his partner said, "how did you do that?"
"Well," he replied, "when there's a whole herd of deer, you can hardly miss,
|3 deer hunters go to heaven
Three deer hunters go to Heaven. They are met at the pearly gates by
St. Peter. St. Peter says to them, "Welcome to Heaven, you three will get
along here just fine, as long as you remember our number one rule. Don't
harm any deer. God really gets mad if you harm any of his deer"
The three deer hunters thought that was pretty reasonable and they all went
off to explore Heaven.
The first deer hunter was driving along enjoying the sights of Heaven, and
"CRASH" he runs right over a deer and kills it. Then instantly this really
ugly woman appears in the seat right next to him. He then realizes that they
are shackled together with a heavy chain.
The voice of God rings out "You two will be shackled together for eternity."
The second deer hunter heard about this and decided that he better be more
careful with his driving. He was driving along enjoying the sights of
Heaven, and this buck jumped out of the ditch and "CRASH" he runs right over
the buck and kills it. Then instantly this even uglier woman appears in the
seat right next to him. He then realizes that they are shackled together
with a heavy chain.
The voice of God again rings out "You two will be shackled together for
The third hunter hears about this and decides he is going to quit driving.
The next day he decides he will go for a walk in the forest. After walking
for about a mile he spots a log over looking a meadow and sits down for a
rest. Then instantly this beautiful woman appears on the log right next to
him. He then realizes that they are shackled together with a heavy chain.
The deer hunter says to her "Where did you come from?"
The beautiful woman says "The last thing that I remember, I was just driving
along and "CRASH" I hit this deer."
|His first deer
It was a clear, cold November morning, every condition imaginable was just
right. The young deer hunter sat still and quiet in the tree stand hoping to
get his first deer. Just after daybreak, he could hear the crunching of the
leaves as a deer made it way down the trail toward his stand. His heart
Moments later, a HUGE 10-pointer at least 20" wide stood still broadside not
more than 20 yards away. He slowly raised the rifle, clicked off the safety,
squeeze, boom. The deer dropped instantly in his tracks. The guy was so
excited, he quickly hung the gun back on the nail in the tree, scampered
down the ladder and ran over the where the buck lay.
Reaching for his knife to begin field-dressing the deer, he realized that he
must first tag the deer. Not wanting to get into any trouble, he laid down
his knife, pulled the tag from his pocket, filled it out, and neatly tied it
to the buck's massive antlers.
He reached down picked up the knife to resume field-dressing the deer, then
the buck did something unexpected, he jumped up, snorted, and ran back up
the trail over the ridge. The young hunter stood there in amazement for a moment,
glanced back up in the tree at his rifle hanging near the stand, looked at
the knife in his hand, then mumbled a couple of choice words then tore out
running after the big buck.
Moments after the buck crossed over the ridge top, there was a boom from
another hunter's rifle. The young deer hunter thought to himself, "oh no,
not my deer." As he reached the ridge top and crossed over, he saw the big
buck lying on the trail ahead of him as a hunter cautiously approached the
downed deer checking it for dead. The young hunter runs up to the guy, out
of breath he explains "That's my deer, huff, huff, that's my deer." "Like
heck it is" said the other guy. "I just shot this one." "No,
no, look, it's got my tag on his antlers."
The second hunter looked down at the deer, sure enough, there were tags
attached to the antlers. He looked back at the young guy completely
exhausted and out of breath holding the pocket knife and says, "Fella, if
you're man enough to tag 'em first and then run 'em down, you can have this
|Father and son go deer hunting
A father and son went hunting together for the first time. The father said,
"Stay here and be very QUIET. I'll be across the field."
An hour later, the father heard a bloodcurdling scream and ran back to his
son. "What's wrong?" the father asked. "I told you to be quiet."
The son answered, "Look, I was quiet when the snake slithered across my
feet. I was quiet when the bear breathed down my neck. I didn't move a
muscle when the skunk climbed over my shoulder. I closed my eyes and held my
breath when the wasp stung me. I didn't cough when I swallowed the gnat. I
didn't cuss or scratch when the poison oak started itching. But when the two
chipmunks crawled up my pant legs and said, 'Should we eat them here or take
them with us?' Well, I guess I just panicked."
|A woman in Bed
A woman is in bed with her husband's best
friend when the phone rings.
Since it is the woman's house, she picks up the receiver. Her lover looks
over at her and listens, only hearing her side of the conversation...
She is speaking in a cheery voice and says, "Hello? Oh, hi. I'm so glad that
you called. Really? That's wonderful. I am so happy for you. that sounds
terrific. Great! Thanks. Okay. Bye bye."

time he's having on his deer hunting trip with you."
|A grizzly bear slips
A guy was telling his friend about his recent deer hunting trip to Montana.
"We were out in the woods all morning and our guide decided that we should
take a break along the river bank. I wasn't feeling tired so I went for a
stroll while the others were resting.
As I was walking, a grizzly bear burst out of the brush in front of me. I
turned and started running like hell through the woods with the bear after
me. The bear almost caught up with me but slipped and fell down.
I kept running and the bear almost caught up with me again twice, but
slipped and fell each time. I finally reached the river bank. The guide saw
the bear chasing me and shot it dead."
"Wow!" replied his friend, "That's incredible. If I were you, I would have
messed all over myself."
The first guy answered, "What do you think the bear was slipping on?"
|The old abandoned mine shaft
There were these two guys out deer hunting when they came upon an old,
abandoned mine shaft. Curious about its depth they threw in a pebble and
waited for the sound of it striking the bottom, but they heard nothing. They
went and got a bigger rock, threw it in and waited. Still nothing.
They searched the area for something larger and came upon an old railroad
tie. With great difficulty, the two men carried it to the opening and threw
it in. While waiting for it to hit bottom, a pack mule suddenly darted
between them and leapt into the hole! The guys were still standing there
with astonished looks upon their faces from the actions of the mule when
another deer hunter walked up to them.
"Have you seen my pack mule anywhere in the area?" he asked.
"Yes," they replied, "one just ran and jumped into the mine shaft in front
The man replied, "that couldn't be my mule, mine was tied to an old railroad
tie with a long rope."
|Pessimist and a dog
An avid duck hunter was in
the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that
could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was
sure none of his friends would ever believe him.
He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, the eternal
pessimist who refused to be impressed with anything. This, surely, would
impress him. He invited him to hunt with him and his new dog.
As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. they fired, and a
duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however,
did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never
getting more than his paws wet. This continued all day long; each time a
duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it.
The pessimist watched carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single
On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, "Did you notice anything
unusual about my new dog?"
"I sure did," responded the pessimist. "He can't swim."
|Business and fishing
One day a fisherman was
lying on a beautiful beach, with his fishing pole propped up in the sand and
his solitary line cast out into the sparkling blue surf. He was enjoying the
warmth of the afternoon sun and the prospect of catching a fish.
About that time, a businessman came walking down the beach, trying to
relieve some of the stress of his workday. He noticed the fisherman sitting
on the beach and decided to find out why this fisherman was fishing instead
of working harder to make a living for himself and his family.
"You aren't going to catch many fish that way," said the businessman to the
fisherman, "you should be working rather than lying on the beach!"
The fisherman looked up at the businessman, smiled and replied, "And what
will my reward be?"
"Well, you can get bigger nets and catch more fish!" was the businessman's
"And then what will my reward be?" asked the fisherman, still smiling.
The businessman replied, "You will make money and you'll be able to buy a
boat, which will then result in larger catches of fish!" "And then what will
my reward be?" asked the fisherman again.
The businessman was beginning to get a little irritated with the fisherman's
questions. "You can buy a bigger boat, and hire some people to work for
you!" he said.
"And then what will my reward be?" repeated the fisherman.
The businessman was getting angry. "Don't you understand? You can build up a
fleet of fishing boats, sail all over the world, and let all your employees
catch fish for you!"
Once again the fisherman asked, "And then what will my reward be?"
The businessman was red with rage and shouted at the fisherman, "Don't you
understand that you can become so rich that you will never have to work for
your living again! You can spend all the rest of your days sitting on this
beach, looking at the sunset. You won't have a care in the world!"
The fisherman, still smiling, looked up and said, "And what do you think I'm
doing right now?"
Two Aggie hunters were driving
through the country to go bear hunting. They came upon a fork in the road
where a sign read "BEAR LEFT" so they went home.
|A couple of young fellers were fishing at their special
pond off the beaten track when out of the bush's jumped the Game Warden!
Immediately, one of the boys threw his rod down and started running through
the woods, and hot on his heels came the Game Warden.
After about a half mile the fella stopped and stooped over with his hands on
his thighs to catch his breath and the Game Warden finally caught up to him.
"Lets see yer fishin license, Boy !" the Warden gasped.
With that, the fella pulled out his wallet and gave the Game Warden a valid
"Well, son," said the Game Warden, " You must be about as dumb as a box of
rocks! You don't have to run from me if you have a valid license!"
"Yes Sir," panted the young feller," But my friend back there, well, he
don't have one."
Two Virginia rednecks go on a
fishing trip. They spend a fortune by renting all the equipment - the reels,

The first day they go fishing, but they don't catch anything. The same thing
happens on the second day, and on the third day. It goes on like this until
finally, on the last day of their vacation, one of the men catches a fish.
As they're driving home they're really depressed. One guy turns to the other
and says, "Do you realize that this one lousy fish we caught cost us fifteen
The other guy says, "Wow! Then it's a good thing we didn't catch any more!"
Many years ago, a fisherman's wife
blessed her husband with twin sons. They loved the children very much, but
couldn't think of what to name their children. Finally, after several days,
the fisherman said, "Let's not decide on names right now. If we wait a
little while, the names will simply occur to us."
After several weeks had passed, the fisherman and his wife noticed a
peculiar fact. When left alone, one of the boys would also turn towards the
sea, while the other boy would face inland. It didn't matter which way the
parents positioned the children, the same child always faced the same
direction. "Let's call the boys Towards and Away," suggested the fisherman.
His wife agreed, and from that point on, the boys were simply known as
Towards and Away.
The years passed and the lads grew tall and strong. The day came when the
aging fisherman said to his sons, "Boys, it is time that learned how to make
a living from the sea." They provisioned their ship, said their goodbyes,
and set sail for a three month voyage.
The three months passed quickly for the fisherman's wife, yet the ship had
not returned. Another three months passed, and still no ship. Three whole
years passed before the greiving woman saw a lone man walking towards her
house. She recognized him as her husband. "My goodness! What has happened to
my darling boys?" she cried.
The ragged fisherman began to tell his story: "We were just barely one whole
day out to see when Towards hooked into a great fish. Towards fought long
and hard, but the fish was more than his equal. For a whole week they
wrestled upon the waves without either of them letting up. Yet eventually
the great fish started to win the battle, and Towards was pulled over the
side of our ship. He was swallowed whole, and we never saw either of them
"Oh dear, that must have been terrible! What a huge fish that must of been!"
"Yes, it was, but you should have seen the one that got Away...."

Three guys are out hunting and sitting
around the evening campfire exchanging their worst experiences.
The first guy says the worst thing that ever happened to him was, he was up
on scaffold 7 stories high washing windows when the scaffold collapsed and
he fell, breaking every bone in his body and he was hospitalized for six
The second guy says the worst thing that ever happened to him was, he was
hitch-hiking and a Greyhound bus ran over him, breaking his back and he
wound up in the hospital for nearly a year.
The 3rd guy was not saying anything, so one of the others asked him about
his worst experience.
He said, "Well, I'll tell you about the second worst thing that ever
happened to me, I was out hunting one time and I had to take a dump, so I
stepped behind a tree, dropped my trousers, and crouched down into *the*

world was the worst?"
He calmly replied "Oh, that would be when I reached the end of the chain."
