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 he finds his 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 decides
to take her along.
Three hours later they arrive at a game preserve just outside of San
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 damn deer! Just let me get my saddle off it!!!!"
