    I avoid that place like the plague - Plague is a nasty disease, so I will avoid it if I can.

    What is the context for "bagged the deer"? The obvious one is that you have shot the deer.

    That splendid young man cut down in his prime - He died when still a young man in the prime of life, the time of maturity when power and vigour are greatest
