Hunter Whooped by Deer

I don’t know how else I can describe this video, this hunter gets wooped on by this deer. I remember seeing this video on the Michigan outdoor channel when I was younger. It’s amazing someone got this footage on tape.


I kind of wondered if this was an actual setup or something, but no way. I mean I can’t see anyone going these great lengths just to tangle with a buck to get it on tape. Just makes me wonder how in the hell the person got this great footage though. This one’s definitely gonna go down in the history books.

I do have a story of a deer actually jumping over my head that kind of relates to this video. I actually think it was a doe though, not a buck, but it was dark out so I’m not sure what kind of deer it was.

This is how it went down, one day I was hunting in a tree stand right before dusk. I saw this deer come in and walk in front of my tree stand, since it was starting to get dark out I thought I saw a few horns on his head. Still wasn’t sure though, but I thought what the hell, I thought I saw some horns so I decided to take a shot.

I pulled back my bow and released, I saw the deer jump and I thought I may of hit it. The deer ran over near my Grandpa’s old fenced off horse section. After I got down from the tree stand, I started to scan the area for blood and try to look for my arrow sticking out of the ground, I found no traces. So I thought the hell with that, I didn’t see any blood and I know I’m not going to find the arrow because it’s starting to get dark out. So I headed to go back to the farm house, I heard a loud noise.


Sounded like two deer fighting, but then I thought maybe it’s my deer I shot at and maybe hit. Sounded like it’s coming from the fenced off horse section, so I ran over to the fenced off entry point and then I saw a flash of a big body coming towards me. I locked up, the deer ran straight towards me and jumped right over my head. It clocked me right in the forehead knocking me straight to the ground. I’m 6′,1″ so I’m obviously not a small guy, that deer jumped a good 6 feet in the air and right over my head. Pretty amazing!

I laid there on my back for a good ten minutes thinking did that just happen, my dad came on the scene after he got down from his tree stand, he immediately asked what had happened? I told him the whole story and he just smirked, I’m like fine don’t believe me. The deer knocked my hunting hat clean off. To this day I don’t know whether the deer was the buck I shot at or not. I don’t even know if the deer that jumped over my head was a buck or not, just saw a flash of a dark body and I was on the ground. I do think it may have been a doe, because I didn’t see any sign of a rack on it’s head and it didn’t try to ram me with it.

I obviously got hit by the Deer’s knee and not his hoof, if it was the hoof I definitely would of had a nice size gash in my forehead. On the flip side of that, it could of been a lot worse because I could of been rammed by its horns if it was a buck. I would of been really messed up like this hunter in this video, because that deer came full throttle at me. That was my close call, I’ll definitely think twice before I stand in front of an exit/entry point of a fenced off coop. Believe it or not!
