TWO friends had gone deer hunting for many years without success. Finally, they came up with what they thought was a foolproof plan. They got a very authentic female deer costume and learned the female deer’s mating call. The plan was to hide in the costume, lure the stag, then come out of the costume and shoot it.

So they set themselves up on the edge of a clearing, donned their costume, and began to give the deer love call. Before long, their call was answered as a stag came crashing out of the forest and into the clearing.

When the stag was close enough, the guy in front said: “Okay, let’s get out and get him.”

There was a long silence before the guy in the back whispered: “The zipper is stuck! What are we going to do?”

The guy in the front replied: “Well, I’m going to start nibbling grass, but you’d better brace yourself.”
