A Kinder, Gentler Deer Hunting

FLASH! Cowboy Action Shooting World Champion Jim Finch, a.k.a. Long Hunter, has decided to change his CAS alias to "Deer Whisperer" after discovering an uncanny ability to walk up to deer on Texas ranch, scratch their little antlered head and convince them to willingly climb into a stew-pot of their own accord.

"I'm having a little trouble with the does," says the Whisperer, "because just like humans girl deer appear to be a lot smarter than boy deer."

Finch said he plans to plant a portion of his ranch in oregano, jalapeno and cumin plants in the hopes of pre-seasoning the deer for chili before he talks them into the pot.

"My goal is to just add pinto beans and simmer," he says.

An earlier experiment with javelinas nearly turned lethal since, apparently, feral hogs don't tend to pay much attention to casual conversation.

"Besides," Finch adds, "who wants to be known as a 'pig whisperer?''

It's Texas MEAT stew NOT Texas BEAN stew!

What's stew? You talking about chili? Stew...that's what Yankee's eat. Taking all the fun about hunting, unless...can you shoot the deer when it jumps in the cooker?

I've tried "chicken whispering" to get the eggs out from under recalcitrant hens. They still peck the hell out of my hands.
