Deer looking off with a peach tree for antlers. Forked Deer (pronounced Fork-id Deer) is a river in Tennessee but also an Appalachian tall tale about a family living in the mountains who ran out of lead bullets for hunting. It was winter and they had only beans to eat. Then the man got an idea into his head that he could use a peach pit, instead of a bullet, when he went deer hunting. After some time in the woods he came across a deer with an unusual white patch on its leg. He shot at the deer but it just ran away. The man was disgusted and went home. A couple of years later the man was out ginsenging and he saw what looked like a tree moving through the woods. Upon closer inspection, he discovered it was the deer with the white patch, but, instead of antlers, the buck had a full size peach tree growing out of his head.
