Jordan Maxon, a hunter from New Richmond, Wisconsin, had an unusual experience with a gregarious deer.
Maxon erected a deer stand in a clearing and before he began his hunt, he checked the area for any stray animals. He then caught sight of a deer some 70 yards away.
On YouTube, Maxon said, “I figured I’d wait for him to leave the clearing, but after five minutes of standing there, he wouldn’t leave.”
The buck decides not to go and walks over to Maxon, who gently entices the darling to get a little closer by making noises you’d use to persuade a cat or dog.
What animal on earth doesn’t enjoy a nice head scratch? Because the deer is so close, Maxon is even able to give it a small head scratch.
Maxon posted on YouTube, “I have never seen or experienced anything like this in my twelve years of hunting or the additional ten years of experiences of hunting with my dad and uncles.”
Maxon warned that he would not be able to kill the buck after his encounter even if he was out deer hunting.
