If this is real, that guy is as strong as an ox. I wouldn't cross him.

LOL. Could have been around here. Deer season is almost the biggest holiday of the year. The week before Thanksgiving, many companies will have significant number of employees out on vacation.

That said, in the last two weeks I've almost hit two deer while riding my bike at night. Could use more hunters right now.

Wow, I was not expecting that. That is NOT the way you want to dress during hunting season to avoid being shot at!

Judging by that guys superhuman strength, I wouldn't be surprised if he is also bullet proof!
