We’ve seen our share of locked-up bucks getting rescued, but this one takes the cake.
Wearing a body cam, Kansas Game Warden Lynn Koch captured the footage of a very unusual method of separation: a well-placed shot from his .45 cal. Glock 21.
The kicker? This isn’t even the first time he has tried this method. “Las “Last year I (shot the antlers to free two bucks) but one of the deer was already dead,” Koch told Kansas.com.
After talking it over with his fellow Game Warden Brad Hageman — who was also on the scene — Officer Koch decides that shooting was the best and SAFEST course of action for both deer and human.
So he lined up the shot, and, with little fanfare, squeezed the trigger.
His high-pitched “ha-HAA” should tell you that the shot was perfect. He took cover behind a tree as both animals scampered off. The locked-up bucks live to fight another day.
The video was posted to the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks’ Facebook page, and has over half a million views since being posted last week.
Very impressive! Kudos, gentlemen.
Some really cool body camera footage of one of our Game Wardens separating locked together bucks by shooting the antler on one of the bucks. These guys are free to fight again next autumn. Great shot sir!
