It was Saturday morning as Jake, an avid hunter, woke up ready
to go bag the first deer of the season. He walks down to the
kitchen to get a cup of coffee, and to his surprise he finds
his wife, Alice, sitting there, fully dressed in camouflage.
Jake asks her: "What are you up to?"
Alice smiles: "I'm going hunting with you!"
Jake, though he had many reservations about this, reluctantly
decides to take her along. Later they arrive at the hunting
site. Jake sets his wife safely up in the tree stand and tells
her: "If you see a deer, take careful aim on it and I'll come
running back as soon as I hear the shot".
Jake walks away with a smile on his face knowing that Alice
couldn't bag an elephant--much less a deer. Not 10 minutes
pass when he is startled as he hears an array of gunshots.
Quickly, Jake starts running back. As Jake gets closer to her
stand, he hears Alice screaming: "Get away from my deer!"
Confused, Jake races faster towards his screaming wife. And
again he hears her yell: "Get away from my deer!" followed by
another volley of gunfire.
Now within sight of where he had left his wife, Jake is
surprised to see a cowboy, with his hands high in the air.
The cowboy, obviously distraught, says: "Okay, lady, okay!!!!
You can have your deer!!! Just let me get my saddle off it!"
