    hahahahaha, that is hilarious LAMBO. Seeing an emu in the dark would definitely rank high on my weird scale.

    A scary hunting story that comes to mind years ago on of the students in a firearms class went hunting with two of the instructors he did not bother to sight in his rifle and as a result ended up blazing away most of his ammo during the coarse of the day missing every shot he took.

    When night came he was lost and did not turn up at the place the vehicles were parked he eventually stumbled his way into camp mad as h*^# because he got in trouble for using his flashlight while walking back to camp with a partially loaded rifle (two rounds left).

    The next day he was determined to "get his deer" with or without any help so he went it alone in his Jeep and took off well he did not show up until night time again only this time he was even madder seems he had a flat tire on his Jeep he had a lug wrench with the four sockets but he did not have a bar to put in the jacks handle to lift the jack up and down with.

    Proving the old saying that "there is no such thing as no one can be THAT stupid" he used the only metal bar he could find to change the tire and operate his jack using his trusty new Remington rifles barrel as a lever.
    Yes indeed bent it very nicley but thats not the end of it.

    He was determined to keep hunting and somehow found a hacksaw in one of the other trucks toolboxes and started to "fix" his rifle needless to say the saw was taken away, he soon ended up going home mad and P&^%$ off after a lengthy "discussion" about his exploits and lack of common sense.

    Whats scary last I heard he was a member of the one Kalifornias best know LEO organizations.:eek:

    Had some odd events. Had some bullets fly through the trees near me.

    Had two chickadee's doing something on the bill of my cap once, I just sat still and hope they both had fun...

    Had a pine Marten move through my shooting lane once, odd looking critter it is...

    Watched three does wait in line more or less while a buck did the deed with each, At least he died with a smile on his face.

    Had some guy we did not know fall asleep in our truck....

    While canoeing, we had a bear rip out the guy line to the tent...

    While deer hunting, had a guy come up and start asking all sorts of questions, asking about how many deer we had seen, if I knew what to do when I shot one, etc. This in the middle of 500 acres of private posted land. This guy was outfitted with all this brand new stuff, fancy glossy weatherby, Big huge knife, 10X80 binoculars, etc. I asked if he knew where he was, and if he could read, because he had just walked in past three or four no tresspassing signs. He just looked at me like I was nuts and said "but i have a hunting license." I said this is all private land. posted and fenced, Again he says "but I have a license." To him a hunting license was a license to tresspass and go where ever he wanted.

    I was hunting in Alaska a few years ago. In the dark of the night I was woke up to a chuffing sound at my head with only several millimeters of nylon separating me from a 1000lb + brown bear.

    As quietly as I could I reached over and got hold of my .44 pistol. As I was bringing it to my side it knocked over a coffee pot making a hell of a racket.

    The bear instantly went into a rage and tore through my tent. He knocked the pistol from my grip and took my head into his mouth. I was able to rip free and grab a knife from my day pack.

    With a snicker and and fierce growl the bear instantly ripped my right arm from my shoulder socket and spit it out on the floor of the tent with the knife still griped in my fist he then killed and ate me.;)

    The end.:uhoh:

    I didn't see anything as I sat all afternoon in the deer stand. I sat there thinking about the invitation I'd turned down to meet some friends. While there was still 10 minutes left before shooting time, I'd had enough. If I hurried, I could still meet my friends. I started to get my gear in my pack and then, to my left, I saw it!

    It had flaming red eyes. It stared at me and didn't move. Then I notice a second one behind the first - its eyes were also red but not as fiery.

    My heart skipped a couple of beats. What on earth have I found? Or, what has found me???

    Then I realized, I had my 'head light' on and I’d left it on the red setting. I hardly saw the deer, but the light certainly made their eyes appear devilish. They were a couple of small does – who both lived to see another day.

    Had a chicadee land on the barrel of my rifle and hang out for a bit once. That tells me I was doing a good job sitting still.

    While black bear hunting in the Adirondack mountains, me and two friends noticed a strange light moving up the hill slowly. We watched for a few, went and got our guns and watched more. We remembered and discussed that Whitley Streiber's books on alien abductions were based from the area we were in. Then one of us realized it was the moonlight shining off the stream that rolls down the mountain. As the moon rose, the light moved closer to us. Talk about feeling stupid!

    May you rest in peace, H&H.

    Not a hunting tale, but was running a bar in the Deer Lodge Valley, Montana years ago . . . closed-up one night about 1:45 am & as I walked to the house, saw a "creature" running down the lane toward me. Now I'm here to tell you that a well-backlighted Afghan hound will get you to scratching your melon trying to figure out what the hell it is . . .

    In some parts the legality of that probably wouldn't be questioned.

    Here is my grandpa's story. He was camping with a friend of his in Alaska when he woke up to a loud metallic click. He said he waited for a couple seconds lying down and then hear a deafining boom about five inches away from his head. He though he was dead because he could feel something warm running down his forehead and when he reaced back he felt a big furry thing. Turns out his friend had just killed a grizzly that was sniffing my grandpa's head with his .44mag. My grandpa was mad because his ears rang for the rest of the trip but that was a fair price to pay for his life.

    Ahh what the heck, I'll go also.... Last October I was bowhunting on my land... I was enjoying the sunset and relaxing.. suddenly I hear cruch cruch cruch... I thought the deer were finally going to show up... but nope, it was a damn pitbull that lives up the street. The dog saw me up in the tree and started to bark like crazy! It was snarling at me too. About 10 minutes later, the dog left. I waited a good 30 minutes after dark to go back to the house. I walked all the way back with an arrow knocked and with my survival knife on my hip.

    The next day I went to speak to the dogs owner... He was understanding... the dog has been leashed up ever since.

    A few years ago a friend and I were spending the night camping rough outside Glencoe (Scotland). I was a warm summer so all we did was start a fire and put up a tarp in case it rained. We both commented that we felt uneasy, like we were being watched, but neither of us could see anything. We shrugged it off and had an early night.

    I woke up in the morning to an odd smell and looked around to see about 20 highland cows within yards of where I was sleeping. My first reaction was "Gaaaah!", which woke my friend and then he freaked out too. We were both in a panic, wondering where they came from and how they all arrived without either of us hearing it. I was convinced they'd gore me to death but my friend knew better and after he'd calmed down tried befriending them.

    The cows ignored us entirely.

    I didn't witness this but a hunting companion claims he did. He was in a tree stand on the edge of a cliff. There is a lot of horse activity - even during deer season - and a lot of riding trails in the area. A couple of riders - one male, one female - stopped under his stand on the trail and did the nasty on horse back. He said he didn't know whether to applaud or remain silent so he took the high road. This happened near Tunnel Hill in Southern Illinois for all of you Illinois boys.

    My family was on a camping trip out west. They were in one of the national parks and in the tent asleep when awakened by something rattling the cook ware. My step father had only a .22 revolver with him and when he peeked out of the tent he could see a large bear - unsure of species as it was dark. Mom asked him what it was and he told her to go back to sleep is was just a raccoon. When he finally told the story a couple of years later he said he lay awake all night convinced that they were all going to be the bear's entrée.

    .308win,

    The equestrian fornication story is great! If that actually happened, I would have applauded!

    I hunt Ferne Clyffe SP and the Shawnee National Forest near Tunnel Hill in Southern Illinois (Johnson County). There's the River to River and lots of other horse trails and FCSP even has a horse camping area. So, I'm believeing the fornication on horseback story.

    I too would have given the couple a standing ovation upon completion of the deed.

    Kinda long, and not really hunting but still funny. A couple of months ago I signed up for the ultra o-gaine right outside of Chattanooga. To those that do not know what this is, it is a 24 hour endurance/navigation type event. Well it starts after dark and me and my buddy head out to find our first waypoint. Must be noted here that my buddy is an avid hunter, but basically i needed a partner so I took a guy with no nav skills. I taught him to read an bearing and I double checked while i pass counted.

    Well we go about 300 meters straight through the woods and he stops all of a sudden, here is the conversation:

    Him: Steve

    me: yeah

    Him: I think there is something infront of me

    Me: really what

    Him: I don't know but it is looking right at me

    Me: (now I am next to him) what?

    HIm: Those are eyes right there

    Me: (now I am seeing what he sees about ten meters in front of him) doubt it is anything, just walk right through it. (I was unsure but figured I would let him go first)

    Him: Okay (very shaky voice)

    So he goes for it gets about two feet out and it jumps up and runs away as he screams like a girl.

    Turns out it was a little fawn sitting still and trying not to be noticed. Scared the hell out of him.

    Later in the day we return to base camp and he says we should share our cool story about seeing a deer and snake and what not. I told him i didn't think anybody would be impressed at how we got the crap scared out of us by a little deer. He agreed.

    It happens a lot more than you would think. A lot of these people come down here to ride horse and think they're out in the middle of nowhere. I've never seen it while hunting, but walking some horse trails, I've found a couple different couples in action.

    He would finish that story with "Now that's why you don't go camping with a hard sleeper." I'm not sure if it was true, but you believed him with the way he told it and I knew he used to go to alaska.

    That's when you know your camo is good. Personally, I would have waited patiently until they were at their zenith, then asked if they could be a bit more quiet so they didn't scare the game.

    But I'm a big meanie like that :evil:
