Caption Contest Winner Announced!
By Dave Hurteau
Lots of good ones for this caption contest, as usual, folks. Good news: the question of whether or not you will be the winner of this week’s fabulous prize—a pair of Cabela’s 50th Anniversary Limited-Edition Boots by Meindl (shown below) worth nearly $400—will not be determined by my sense of humor alone this time, nor mine and Bestul’s, because we couldn’t agree on this one. So I took an informal survey of a select group of F&S editors and contributors (whoever would answer the phone). Good luck.
Here are the runners up:
"Nice Rack.” “Nice Legs." –Lexer Wolf
An example of what has happened to the National Forest Deer here in VA. –VAHunter540
Army Man with Binoculars: “There is a monster buck on the ridge next to the grasshopper.” EOD Army Man: “If only I wasn't stuck with a metal detector...” –BrandonScarbel
“We'll have to measure this one with the new Boone & Cricket scoring guidelines.” –FlyBorchetti
“So, Jiminy, you're telling me if I keep lying my antlers will get BIGGER and BIGGER?!!” –Blase110
“Son, your mother and I have decided it's time to tell you the truth....you're adopted.” –Blase110
“Wisconsin 2015: I think Doctor Deer got it wrong.” –duck20
“Take your time, if you get both the hopper and the deer, all you need is the blue duck for the wonderland grand slam.” –duck20
“I just ate your rubline....;) got your back brother.” –lamphere29
An Arizona Coues deer in his natural habitat. –MattB
“Ok, I'm not quite sure how to tell you this, but where I'm from, I'mmmm kind of a Big deal.” –joshd
And the winner is:
Uh oh......I think I ate the wrong mushrooms again!! –RedHeadHunter
