But there is more to this unusual story: Because this incident occurred on April Fools' Day, nobody believed McCook when he told them about the occurrence.
Cary sustained a sore shoulder but was otherwise unharmed. You think teams are gonna feel comfortable sending guys across the middle knowing that HGH Bambi is lined up at safety and champing at the bit to throw a devastating hit on anyone in its vicinity? "Still see the deer fur on my arm", McCook wrote in a Facebook post.
In the video, McCook doesn't see the deer coming until it's too late.
Cary McCook's friends didn't believe that it actually happened, so he asked a nearby inn for the surveillance video.
That was until McCook traveled back to the hotel and got permission to record and share the footage. A hit and run, if you will. His official profile picture shows him wearing a shirt that says "I'm the Rapper Who got hit By a DEER!" alluding to his membership of a hip hop group called "Reka NatioN". As soon as that dude stepped out of his truck near the front entrance, the deer laid a vicious truck-stick on him.
