    Man with knife holds off aggressive deer

    TRUMANN, Ark. - Greg Vincent thought he was kidding when he told his 13-year-old son and a nephew that he could use his hunting knife to handle a snorting buck that was about to charge them.

    In the woods in Fulton County for last weekend's youth hunt, the group was tracking a different deer that Vincent's son Kyle had shot when a six-point buck appeared in their path.

    "I told everyone to just be still and see what he was going to do," Vincent said.

    The buck was about 15 yards away, staring at them.

    "We had left our guns at the camp, and all I had was a hunting knife," he said.

    Most deer will run off when they see a person. Not this one.

    "I took out my knife and jokingly told the boys I would take care of the deer if it attacked," he said. Then the animal lowered its head, shook its antlers, snorted, pawed the ground and advanced on them.

    It got close to Kyle, and that's when Vincent rushed the animal. He grabbed the antlers, jerked the deer's head around and stabbed it in the ribs. Vincent said he hoped that would make the animal run away, but the animal kept struggling.

    Vincent hung onto the deer's neck as they tumbled into a creek and he dropped the knife. He yelled for the boys to find the knife, and nephew Dillon Vincent placed the knife in his uncle's hand.

    "When I stabbed the neck, I pulled the knife as hard as I could," Greg Vincent said, ripping a large gash that probably would have been fatal. The deer continued to struggle but was growing weaker. Vincent, who was a competitive weightlifter in high school, was tiring, too. Within moments, his father, Harvey Vincent, finished off the animal with a shot from Kyle's rifle.

    The Vincents learned later from a game warden that the deer was aggressive probably because it was in rut.

    Lets track a wounded animal without a gun. Lol tools.

    What are you going to do when it gets up and runs away? Chase it with your knife?

    One of them probably put some doe- in -heat on their clothes to try to lure a buck to their stand.

    During the rut, Bucks do some strange stuff.
