There's an old reporter's adage about story sources that goes thusly, "trust, but verify." It's also a damn useful refrain for life, romance and, oh, yes, the deer woods. Especially the next time you kneel down to pat the deer you've just shot and thank it for giving its life to you, because possession of said life might not yet, in point of fact, been fully transferred...
From this story on New Hampshire's unionleader.com:
Everett Gray said he plans to retire from deer hunting after being gored by an eight-point buck he shot with his .257 Roberts rifle. "My brother gave me that rifle," Gray said Sunday. "I shot my first deer with it, and I just shot my last."
