Humane Hunting ala Statistics

Three statisticians went deer-hunting with bows and arrows. They crept through the forest until they spotted a magnificent buck.

The first statistician shot, and his arrow landed five meters to the right of the deer.

The second one shot, and her arrow landed five meters to the left of it.

So the third one jumped out of the bushes and shouted "We got him! We got him!"
