From my father-in-law...bless him -- changed a bit to protect the innocent... :-)
A group of friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That night, one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck. "Where's Henry?" the others asked. "Henry had a health issue of some kind...he's a couple of miles back up the trail," the successful hunter replied. "You left Henry laying out there and carried the deer back?" they inquired. "A tough call," nodded the hunter, "But I figured no one is going to steal Henry!"
