The participants of the contest throw a bigger deer cracker than usual and compete the distance. But, you can imagine what will happen as soon as a cracker is thrown. The cracker comes apart and goes into the stomachs of the deer as soon as it lands on the field. It is difficult not only to throw a super-light cracker but also to measure the distance.This contest is very very funny and stupid, but I love it very much!
The first contest of this year was held on 26th January, it was windy day. All day long strong winds blew and violent gusts of winds curled. Sometimes a cracker returned with a strong wind like a boomerang. One woman got the poorest record, minus 5 meters. The winner was a man whose record was 36.8 meters. He was awarded with a trophy of deer antlers!
The followings are interesting dramas between people and deer!

Carps in a pond are half hibernating.
But, in an icy air, the sunlight shows the promise of coming spring.
