SEDALIA, Mo. - A hunter bagged a big buck on the second day of firearms season, but the kill caused him a lot of pain. Randy Goodman, 49, said he thought two well-placed shots with his .270-caliber rifle had killed the buck on Nov. 19. Goodman said the deer looked dead to him, but seconds later the nine-point, 240-pound animal came to life.

The buck rose up, knocked Goodman down and attacked him with his antlers in what the veteran hunter called "15 seconds of hell." The deer ran a short distance and went down, and died after Goodman fired two more shots.

Soon Goodman started feeling dizzy and noticed his vest was soaked in blood.

So he reached his truck and drove to a hospital, where he received seven staples in his scalp and was treated for a slight concussion and bruises.

That's wild! You never know when you approach a downed animal what might happen.

Hey bud,

Cody may have already responded somewhere but I just wanted to give you a little heads up about the scent-lok stuff I have. The full-season pants are great. I got them a little big so I could fit several layers under them. However, if you're looking for something with a lot of warmth it is probably not the way to go. The full season bow hunter jacket I have is just that, a bow hunters jacket, but it also is made for temps probably greater than 45-50. I put several layers under mine, but it is by no means a jacket I'd wear just for warmth. Hope this hels!
