I know I have 3 puzzles up, but I wanna post this before I forget.

I heard this puzzle from somewhere and I couldn't find it in the classics section.
I'm 100% sure it's a classic, but I'm making sure.

A man shoots a deer. Although he realized his mistake, he wasn't able to escape in time. Within minutes, he is dead.

If you're afraid of forgetting, how about saving a note on your computer or going stone-age and writing it down? :-D

Would appreciate if you could keep it to 3 next time. Thanks :-)

Man = H/A/M?

By "deer," you mean one of various species of ruminant mammal, found worldwide and commonly hunted?

Deer = Species relevant? Male or female? A fawn?

Does the man shoot the deer with a rifle? A camera? A bow? Crossbow? Something else? Relevant?

Is it hunting season?

Did he shoot one of Santa's reindeer? Did he shoot a deer in the King's Forest?

Location relevant?
Time period relevant?
Any other people involved?
Just him and the deer involved?

Did he think he was shooting something else?
Did the deer kill him?
Did he die by accident? Of natural causes? Violently? Did someone or something kill him?

Are the weather conditions relevant?
Did the gun fire cause some sort of avalanche (snow or dirt/mud)?

Not too upset at early spoiler, didn't have a title and expected it to be solved early.

To be honest i have never heard this before and Jenburdoo's questions ruled out my first idea of him getting stampeded by wildebeests.
