Deer hunting in northern Wisconsin, I had a curious chickadee flying around my head as I sat really still. He then proceeded to land on my shoulder, then landed and perched right on my rifle barrel. I swear to God. He just sat there, turning his little head, looking at me. I was trying real hard not to laugh, I felt like I was in a Disney movie. Another time, when I was a kid, my dog and I treed a big, fat grey squirrel in my parents front yard. (My dog was the unholy terror to any small mammals in the area.) Anyway, this squirrel realized he had nowhere to go. After about 10 minutes, he jumps down (about 20 feet) and hits the ground HARD. It sounded like someone dropped a 20lb. sack of spuds. He was stunned for a second, then ran off. Here's the funny part. My dog just looks up at me like, "Can you believe what we just saw?" My dog never made chase. I laughed so hard I cried. She just looked up at me in disbelief. One tough squirrel!
