Strebing, Mike (Hunting Experience - 1958) 

Young Hunter Experience: "I couldn’t make the darn thing move," said Mike Strebing, 12-year-old-son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Strebing, as he told of walking up on a large buck which was lying down in the Town of Washburn Sunday afternoon.  The buck, who had apparently been shot at, realized it was safer to have a boy walk on him than to get up and be shot at by hunters. 

"So, I took a stick," said Mike, "and hit the deer over the head, which frightened him and he took off like a shot, although there were several hunters around him, not one got a shot."  The buck was bedded down in tall grass and had to be walked on to be kicked out, which proves that a smart buck will usually lay low.
