What is it about whitetails that makes them so prone to getting stuck?
Antlers, for one. You’d get tangled up all the time if you had giant pointed protrusions on the top of your head.
But it’s more than that. Whitetails have an unusual mix of curiosity and skittishness that gets them into trouble. They get too close to danger — and then panic, which makes it so much worse.
That’s gotta be it.
At any rate, hammocks and whitetails don’t mix. Here’s yet another example.
Kansas Game Wardens were called to the scene when a young buck got himself tangled up good.
What made this rescue especially dangerous is the fact that the buck still wasn’t exhausted and could still move freely.
But that didn’t deter the Warden.

Video of one of our Game Wardens freeing a young buck caught in a hammock in Pottawatomie County this week. Good work sir getting this guy back in the woods where he belongs.

At first, the buck was scared, and tried his best to get away.
The Warden was at risk of getting kicked or gored at any moment — and nearly does 45 seconds in, and again at 50 seconds. But he refused to give up.
Thankfully, the buck calmed down after a couple minutes — almost like he figured out that the Warden was trying to help.
After some handy knife work, the buck is freed.
According to the Facebook comments, this Warden’s name is Ben.
Good job, Ben.
