Watch: Deer Hunter Gets Skunked

Literally. This might be the most unusual deer hunting footage ever shot.


 

All deer hunters get skunked occasionally, but this is downright ridiculous. In the words of David Phipps, the hunter who captured this footage:

I’m whitetail hunting in a homemade ground blind with my crossbow in Clifton, Virginia, on a steep ridge, near a creek bottom. I hear what I think is a deer coming strong from my backside and then . . . I about crapped my pants. Can anyone explain why this happened? No bait/ no scent, other than my natural gas from Thanksgiving leftovers.
