Provo, UT (AHN) - Frustrated that they hadn't shot any deer during the archery deer hunt, two teenagers in Orem, Utah, have admitted to hunting nine cows last month.

Utah Division of Wildlife Resources conservation officer Paul Davis said in a statement the boys, whose names have not been released, confessed to shooting the cows repeatedly with arrows over a two-week period.

Deer and cows are fierce and dangerous animals - just because they both stand still and stare at you doesn't mean in a second they won't attack.

sick kids....

What's the difference between killing a cow and killing a deer? It's disgusting to kill something for recreation full stop.

It always takes a couple of bad apples to ruin it for the rest of us.

I hope the public won't get the impression that all hunters are as irresponsible as those individuals.

No, we don't all think that Mike. Here's a story my brother emailed me last night, not sure if it is true, but I sure hope so, it's a great story, but you never know with all the false emails these days. Anyway, here goes, hope it turns out ok, I had a lot of cutting and pasting to do:


Last Saturday morning, my buddy Bo Warren and I were trolling for stripers in the Chesapeake Bay. We were 1½ miles offshore in about 80 feet of water contemplating why the fish weren't biting. We looked back to check our gear and saw something odd in the water. Was it a seal?

Can't be, we don't have seals around here. On closer look, it turned out to be a buck that was WAY off course. He was desperate and barely staying afloat. I've seen deer swim a river or bayou before. When you see that, the first thing you notice is that they are powerful swimmers. Their head and shoulders are out of the water and they make surprisingly good headway.

This critter was just keeping his nose up and looked like he'd been swimming all night long. In fact, he was so worn out that he swam toward the boat probably thinking it looked enough like land to him. When he got closer though, he wasn't sure what to make of the two dudes on board, and backed off. So, since the fish weren't biting, we thought we'd give this buck a hand. Turns out Bo grew up around cows and was really handy with a bowline. He lassoed the deer on the first shot!

Bo grabbed his neck, I grabbed the flank, and we barreled over backwards into the boat. Before I knew it, Bo was on top of him and had him tied up just like a calf.

We hit the gas and ran him to the closest beach - Kent Point . I beached the boat and we carefully unloaded the deer onto the sand. The whole time we kept thinking he was going to kick the hell out of us. He never did though, he was totally spent. We untied him and jumped back. Too weak to stand, he just sat there quivering. We even picked him up again and put his feet underneath him, but he still couldn't walk. Don't know if he made it or not, but I think his chances were vastly improved.
