Found this on a forum while looking for a good place to hunt wild pigs. It's hilarious and a good read.

One of my favorite animals is the muntjac, which is a tiny, Asian, fanged, horned deer.

Wow. They're interesting for a whole bunch of reasons! Tusks, oldest deer species, no rutting season, six chromosomes... Not to mention their skulls are cool. I wonder if there's any on ebay?

Yep. Hunnert bucks.

Why do they call a serious overbite "tusks"?

The general answer is tusks protrude outside the mouth.

That buck in my avatar photo was taken by me standing about 10-15 feet away. I also had my eye on the tree I was standing next to, for an escape route.

About 7-8 years ago a couple young bucks were eating my goose food. I tried to chase them off and they weren't impressed with my prowess in animal control. One started scratching the ground in that classic cartoon bull about to charge kinda way. I backed to my truck and grabbed the shotgun. I shot right in front of the lead buck. The rear buck jumped and ran 15 feet before turning around to see what was going on. The lead buck looked at me for a second, then finished off the goose food. They sauntered off, then, the mean as hell geese came out of hiding and begged for some more food, scolding me for being such a wimp.
