One Shot, Two Sets of Antlers: Hunter Bags Bizarre, Rare Trophy

This is truly one of the strangest trophies ever taken in the annals of deer hunting history.

With deer season fully underway in an enormous swath of America, there have been plenty of stories of massive trophies and bizarre circumstances for our nation’s hunters to contend with.

For many conservational hunters, deer season is one of the most important times of the year.  Due to America’s rapid expansion and the sprawl of suburbia, the natural ecosystem in which these creatures thrive is no longer the dangerous place that it used to be.  We, being the apex predator on the planet, (by a long shot), have spent centuries attempting to avoid contact with nature’s more terrifying and carnivorous creatures.  This has led to the mass slaughter of many species, and an enormous rerouting of herds and game trails throughout the nation.

All of this has left our native deer populations with few natural predators and no reason to slow down their population growth.  In many states, even the majestic whitetail deer is a nuisance animal with longer and longer hunting seasons being offered in order to cull the herds back to healthy numbers.

Of course, with this extra hunting occurring, there are bound to be some wild encounters worth sharing, including the tale of one hunter in Kentucky who bagged the trophy of a lifetime.

A man in Ballard County, Kentucky recently bagged a “two-headed” deer, the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources announced Thursday.

The hunter, who the wildlife agency identified as Bob Long, took aim at a buck with “big antlers” off in the distance. After making his shot and killing the animal, Long approached it and made an “astounding” discovery: The buck was “carrying around another set of antlers and part of a decomposing carcass,” the agency explained.

The deer, which was “truly a rare harvest,” state wildlife officials said, has garnered thousands of reactions on the social media platform, many users responding in both awe and disgust.

“Bet they were fighting and that’s the end result!! Just idea,” one person theorized.

The photos of the find were incredibly strange, but I must warn you that they may not be suitable for everyone.

And, thanks to one commenter, I know that I wasn’t the only one thinking it:

“That deer had to be stuck to the dead one a while… the stench,” a third commented.

Joe Biden a Victim of Democrat-Style Elder Abuse

Outside of the U.S., particularly in Russia, China, and Iran, Biden’s accelerating dementia is more than obvious.

“Democrats’ uncompromising lust for power and residual rage from their 2016 election loss is on full display through the cruel and immoral exploitation of President Joe Biden.” At the rate Joe Biden is declining, as evidenced by his recent spate of monumental gaffes on CNN and other video footage, along with his daily rambles, mumbles, non-sequiturs, and outright psychobabble, it’s anyone guess as to how much longer his handlers, his wife and family, and the sycophantic press can continue to provide cover for him.  Outside of the U.S., particularly in Russia, China, and Iran, Biden’s accelerating dementia is more than obvious. Even nine-year olds know. Wait, you say! Each day for a couple of hours, he gets to play ‘president of the USA.’ How can that be elder abuse?  Causing Harm to An Elderly Adult “Elder abuse is an intentional act or failure to act that causes or creates a risk of harm to an older adult,” based on guidelines from U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “An older adult is someone age 60 or older. The abuse often occurs at the hands of a care giver or a person the elder trusts.” Are you listening Jill Biden? “Victims often have to decide whether to tell someone they are being hurt or continue being abused by someone they depend upon or care for deeply,” the CDC states. “Elder abuse is common. Abuse, including neglect and exploitation, are experienced by about 1 in 10 people aged 60 and older who live at home.” Home can include the White House. What are the harmful effects of elder abuse? The National Council on Aging reports that elders who have been abused have a 300% higher risk of death when compared to those who have not been mistreated.  To Exploit and Rule…

Pelosi, Capitol Police Now Bickering Over ‘Orders’ to ‘Arrest’ the Mask-less

This is getting embarrassing for Nancy…

Published

Thankfully, the latest COVID-19 stunt by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi only took a few hours to unravel this time around. Pelosi, who has been pushing the GOP’s buttons on mask mandates for months now, used the CDC’s recent guidance adjustment to bring the facial coverings back to the House floor.  This prompted protests from a great many Republicans, and Pelosi subsequently threatened to have the Capitol Police start arresting folks who wouldn’t comply. The Capitol Police were not exactly on board with that idea. https://twitter.com/CapitolPolice/status/1420810728387264517?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1420810728387264517%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fcapitol-police-ordered-arrest-staff-visitors-not-wearing-masks A response from the speaker followed. Pelosi’s office said she did not order police to begin arresting people because it’s not within her power. “The speaker of the House does not control the U.S. Capitol Police,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.  “We were unaware of the memo until it was reported in the press.” The embarrassing incident comes amid a flurry of criticisms of Pelosi’s handling of the Congressional mask policy, and likely marks yet another milestone in the decline of Nancy Pelosi’s speakership.
