A peculiar thing just happened in the Missouri woods - strange on many different levels. A hunter shared video of a deer that apparently doesn't understand how hunting works and got so close that the animal nearly tripped over him, but he scared it away in the most Missouri way possible.

The animal got real close, but...well, you'll have to watch his video so you'll understand what terrified this deer and made it bolt suddenly.

If I had a nickel for every time one of my Missouri uncles told me to pull his finger, I'd be a rich man. NOTE: make sure you're volume is up for this. You'll thank me later (maybe).

Immature? Yes. Vintage Missouri male behavior? ABSOLUTELY.
