Your Friday Laugh: The 5 Stages of Deer Hunting [VIDEO]


We cull the internet in search of the latest outdoors-related tidbits, YouTube clips, photos, memes, you name it. Stuff you HAVEN’T seen before, hopefully. If it’s amusing, entertaining, educational or astonishing, you’ll find it here. Check back every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and see what’s new.

In honor of the upcoming rifle opener here in Minnesota, here’s one of the funniest deer hunting videos I’ve seen in some time.

The video was posted by the You Betcha Facebook channel, which I recommend checking out.

For those of us who aren’t the sharpest or most patient of deer hunters, some of these will hit particularly close to home. Like accidentally falling asleep.



5 Stages of Deer Hunting 🦌

It's my year 🦌

Posted by You Betcha on Thursday, 7 November 2019


Every season starts the same way—with an overwhelming sense of hope. But 5 hours of inaction is enough to turn any hunter’s disposition to dread.

One of the most universal of the stage is stage 3, where you think every noise is a deer. More often than not, it turns out to be a dang squirrel. They’re so small, but when you’re in your stand, they all sound like 8-pointers crashing through the rushes.

And yes, I’ve fallen asleep plenty of times.

To all you hunters who are itching to get out there—good luck! And don’t forget your rifle.
