Usually, this doesn’t end well. However, for two tangled deer struggling in the snow in Coffey County, Kansas, luck was on their side. Fortunately for the deer, two ‘Kansas Wildlife, Park, & Tourism’ game wardens happened to be passing through the area at the right time.

On December 20, Lynn Koch and Brad Hageman came across the rutting bucks. Since they weren’t locked head to head, the deer had the ability to run side by side, which they did to escape the perceived danger. This resulted in their antlers becoming locked closer together and the two collapsed in the snow, exhausted.

The wardens had to be careful—approaching the deer could result in injury to the deer or to themselves. Thinking outside of the box, Koch drew his .45 Glock, aimed, and shot one of the antlers clean off. Lynn Koch’s body camera captured the moment, and ‘Kansas Wildlife, Park, & Tourism’ posted the footage on Facebook (watch the video above.)

A-FREAKING-MAZING SHOT!! With a Glock. What an eye.

I was really impressed by this video. Can't you tell.

1. I've got a better method...

Just to be sure, I'd shoot lower.
And if they never woke back up, I'd have 150 pounds of summer sausage.

2. Meh, I'd call that wreckless...

 

His shot was lucky, but he was just as likely the blow the brains out. They likely would have worked themselves free in time without any intervention. OTOH worst case was venison for dinner

3. Well I was damn impressed. Especially since I couldn't hit the proverbial broadside of a barn

if I was standing 3' in front of it.
