In what must be the season’s strangest buck fight, a Florida woman recently used her ex-boyfriend’s whitetail mount as a weapon–against him! According to this story in the Tampa Bay Times, Chelsea Harrison and her ex-boyfriend got into an argument that caused Harrison to lock her door in an attempt to keep her ex-beau out of the home they share.
When Terry Nowakowski busted down the door and entered anyway, Harrison grabbed the shoulder mount of a whitetail deer and attacked, using the tines to jab Nowakowski in the face and body. Harrison has been charged with domestic battery.
I’ve jabbed my own hands with rattling antlers. I even slipped while dragging a buck and fell against the rack. Both of these mishaps hurt like heck. But to have a scorned woman come at you with tines brandished? All I can say is “Ouch!”
