It was Saturday morning as Jake, an avid hunter, woke up raring
to go bag the first deer of the season. He walks down to the
kitchen to get a cup of coffee, and to his surprise finds his
beautiful blonde wife Alice, sitting there, fully dressed in camouflage.
Jake asks her, “What are you up to?”
Alice smiles, “I’m going hunting with you!”
Jake, though he had many reservations about this, reluctantly
he decides to take her along.
Three hours later they arrive at a game preserve just outside
of San Marcos, Texas. Jake sets his lovely wife safely up in
the tree stand and tells her, “If you see a deer, take careful
aim on it and I’ll come running back as soon as I hear the shot.”
Jake walks away with a smile on his face knowing that Alice
couldn’t bag an elephant – much less a deer.
Not 10 minutes pass when he is startled as he hears an array
of gunshots. Quickly, Jake starts running back. As Jake gets
closer to her stand, he hears Alice screaming, “Get away
from my deer!”
Confused and frightened, Jake races faster towards his
screaming wife. And again he hears her yell, “Get away
from my deer!” followed by another volley of gunfire!
Now within sight of where he had left his wife, Jake is
surprised to see a Texas game warden with his hands
high in the air.
The game warden, obviously distraught, yelled,
“Okay, lady! You can have your deer! Just let me get
my saddle off it!”
