    Two deer hunters were standing on a ridge near a highway
    in rural Kentucky
    on the opening day of deer season. They both saw a trophy-
    class buck
    meandering towards them.

    As the one hunter raised his gun to shoot, a funeral
    procession came slowly
    by. The hunter lowered his gun, took off his hat, and
    stood with his head
    bowed until the procession was past.

    Of course by then, the deer was long gone.

    The other hunter exclaimed "Wow! That was the most
    sportsmanlike act I've
    ever seen! You allowed this trophy buck to escape while
    showing such compassion
    and kindness toward someone's dearly departed. You are a
    great humanitarian
    and a shining example to sportsmen throughout the
    world!"


    The first hunter nodded and said; "Well, we were married
    for 42 years".
