11. Lost in Translation

Two deer-est friends (get it?!) decide to try hunting for the first time but agree to split up to increases their chances. "What if we get lost?" says one of them. "Fire three shots up in the air, every hour on the hour," says the other. "I saw it on TV." Sure enough, one of the hunters finds himself lost in the woods, so he fires three shots up into the air every hour on the hour. The next day the other hunter finds his friend with the help of the Forest Ranger. "Did you do what I said?" asks the hunter. "Yes, I fired three shots up into the air every hour on the hour, until I ran out of arrows."

12. Dinnertime

A deer hunter asks his pastor if it's a sin to hunt on Sunday. "From what I hear about your aim," say the pastor, "It's a sin for you to hunt any time."

15. If the Shoe Fits

A deer hunter messes up another hunt, something that's happened to him more times and in more ways than he could count. He would spot a buck, take careful aim, fire, and miss. Or he'd sneak up close just to get busted and watch the deer run away. Or he'd sneeze just as the buck came into range. Or he'd fall asleep on the stand, waking in time to watch a giant buck scamper away. Frustrated, he complains to his hunting buddies: "Everything that happens to guys that don't know how to hunt keeps happening to me!"
