It's really hard to blame the deer for making this decision. A new video share by a hunter shows a Missouri buck who decided it would be safer in St. Louis than his normal habitat in the woods.

Owen Tindall Outdoors shared video today of a rare sight in the St. Louis area. The buck stops here - literally.

When you look at the calendar, you understand why this buck would decide that maybe it's safer in the murder capital of America than the woods where it's still the main firearms hunting season in Missouri for his colleagues as of this writing.

It's a smart decision for the deer assuming he doesn't run across the bridge to East St. Louis where even deer would be scared. In the city, he's safe. Might even want to swing by Ted Drewe's for some custard while he's in town.
