Who knew: Blowing nose brings big buck running

Posted: Updated:

A deer hunter figured sneezing had blown his chance at a deer, but blowing his nose brought a big buck running.

Ron Manning of Hinds County said he's hunted deer for 54 years and never seen anything like what happened earlier this month.

The buck was ready to fight, apparently thinking another buck was nearby.

Manning says the 8-point buck came roaring in, "his ears laid back, his eyes glazed over, and the hair standing up on his back."

He says the deer was wide open, and he shot him at 25 yards.

Manning jokes that instead of a grunt/wheeze call, this deer was fooled by a cough/sneeze call.

He says he wishes he knew just what he did so he could do it again.
