What a nice story! Not that I'm a fan of hunting but it's nice to see a positive story printed for once. That's what family is all about...

What a great story. My 79 year old father, who recovered earlier this year from heart surgery, was the only only one of us, 9 in all, to get a deer this year.

How is this a sport? It is time to give rifles to the deer! Now THAT would make it a true sport!

Thats your opinion and you are entitled to it...thank a vet for that. But if you are anti-hunting then why would you even bother to read a story that was clearly about hunting, one mans passion for it and his desire to get out there one last time? Thanks for trying to ruin a feel good story, but failed! Congrats Mr Warner on getting yourself a deer!

What's nice is that the man got a chance to do a favorite activity with his family, not whether we like that particular activity!
How wonderful

I don't hunt and I never will - but when you hunt legally and use what you kill then its no different then going to the store to buy a steak!

What a wonderful family you have raised, Les! You are a blessed man having such loving and caring sons and family!

I am sure this story will be passed down and talked about every year!

Congratulations!

My mother's family has lived in the area of Broad Top Mountain for generations, and those mountains are my favorite place to be.

Congratulations on your buck, Mr. Warner! It sounds like it was a wonderful day to be outdoors, surrounded by nature, and with your loving family at your side.

My grandfather's family has been in Broad Top for generations,and every year they go out hunting together. Most of the family is getting on in years, but the younger generations are going strong with carrying on the traditions.

What a wonderful warming story to hear of a family who seems so close-knit. Congratulations, Mr. Warner, on both the buck and raising a blessed family. May they carry on your values and traditions for generations to come.

"It is a miracle," Shirley Warner said.

Buck doesn't see it that way.

I don't really think that would be helpful to the deer. Where would they get ammo? If they got ammo, how would they load it? How would they shoot it? They don't have opposable thumbs so it would be quite difficult for them to handle a rifle safely, heck they would probably only injure themselves or their offspring by mishandling a loaded rifle. How would they even know what a rifle is? They don't have a memory you know, only instincts. That's why they frequently only run off 30 yards after being shot at (and missed)...they only run as far as they need to to forget the danger. You should think these things through before making such outrageous suggestions.

Congrats on the deer. With this level of motivation he's likley to be out next year too!!!

And for all you lazy terds sitting at home in the power chair you got because of your "Disability", put down the Wii controller and go to work like the rest of us...... Just cuz your fat and that makes your back hurt doesn't mean your frigging disabled.

Kudos to you, Mr. Warner.
