The Deer Hunter.....

It was Saturday morning as Jake, an avid hunter, woke up raring 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.  Three hours later they arrive at a game preserve just
outside of San Marcos, Texas.  Jake sets his lovely 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 the hell
away from my deer!"  Confused and frightened, Jake races faster towards
his screaming wife.  And again he hears her yell:  "Get the hell 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 damn deer! Just let me get my saddle off
