Local Hunters Teach Deer Karate To Even Up The Hunt
By James Louis
For years Mandy, and Lori enjoyed the sport of deer hunting. At some point, they realized it was getting too easy. They wanted to even up the hunt and give the deer a fighting chance.
Mandy describes how they came up with the idea of teaching deer karate. “I had been nagging Lori about the fence that needed painting, a floor that needed sanding and my car that needed waxing.” She said Lori has always been one to find creative solutions to complicated problems. She’s a problem solver. They could teach the deer karate and get some chores done around the house at the same time.
Within a few weeks, “M & L’s Deer Dojo” was born. Things started off with two deer that answered the first ad they placed in the Greene County Messenger that stated, “Free karate classes for anyone looking to build confidence, motivation, self defense skills, and you're a deer.”
Mandy and Lori became very close to their new students, so much that they gave the deer names. Daniel is the younger male with a outcast-ish, rebellious attitude and Miyagi is the older male who is always reciting inspirational quotes in broken English.
So when you’re out hunting this season, be safe. From a distance, it may appear to be an albino deer when in fact he may be wearing a traditional karate uniform and will most likely be aggressive. Mandy and Lori have taught the deer to show no mercy. If you see a deer ready to strike in the crane position, sweep the leg.
Editor's note: if you have never seen the “Karate Kid” movie, you may not understand the references in this article. It's a movie about baby karate goats. Most goats are born with basic karate skills. Rent it if you’re into goats.
