Your all probably tired of reading my stories and comments on this site. I am bored and temporarily un-employed. I just wanted to summarize some of the strange things that have happened to me while hunting.

I hope you will leave a comment and tell me some of the strange things that happened to you!

1. I actually missed 6 bucks and 1 doe in archery in one day. The next year I switched from pins to a true glow and did much better after that.

2. Pulled in a black bear with vanillia and he sniffed the scented rag, and grunted at me.

3. Watched some crazy diving ducks while archery hunting between the river and a corn field, looked up from the ducks to see two does looking right at me, never did get a shot.

4. Shot a doe in archery by a pond and she died in it and I had to fish her out.

5. Had chickadees land on me.

6. Had a small doe and a small buck sniff the bottom of my stand in the same week.

7. Saw what I think may have been a panther!

8. Left a empty binocular case up in a tree-stand, the next day I opened it up in the tree and a crazy squirrel came leaping out at me, almost fell out of the tree

9.Shot at turkey with a 22 and missed and the crazy bird turned and ran right at me, finally hit him when he was about 5 ft from me.

10. Seen these 2 bucks together in pre-season. On a really hot day in archery, had on a t-shirt, camo jeans and sneakers. Was watching this fox squirrel, when I turned those 2 bucks where 20 yards from me. I arrowed the smaller 8 as he gave me a better shot. The really weird part is no one got that big 9 all through rifle and archery. In January my uncle see’s him spinning round and round out in the field and fall over!! He goes out there to see what the heck. Sure enough he was dead NO WOUNDS. He was never shot or anything. He was old and gray figure he died of old age or exhaustion. Didn’t keep the meat, but my uncle gave me the rack. So now the 2 bucks that ran together are side by side on my wall of doom !


Now tell me your crazy stories !

May 28, 2015 A deer with a death wish
by: Anonymous I was hunting in MN in 2012 for the first firearms season in a ground blind overlooking a cut beanfield. Sat the whole morning and didn’t see a thing so I got out and started walking back along the open field when all of a suddenly a little doe ran out of the woods right next to my blind and started running right at me in the open! (I think she was trying to commit suicide) She was running low to the ground like a greyhound and I was so dumbfounded it took me a couple of seconds to react. I fumbled my gun off of my shoulder and held on her chest. Incredibly she ran by as close as five yards IN The MIDDLE of a FIELD! I shot the first time as she was closest, almost point blank, but somehow i missed! I must’ve lead her too much, so i reloaded and fired four more time, but I still missed, and she ran into the woods. Tracked her for a while, but found No Blood! (I later found out my 870 was off by a mile) That is the craziest thing that ever happened to me, I will probably never see deer behavior as strange as that again!

Dec 14, 2011 Sad but True
by: B.R.Y. Sad but True, not just a Metallica song ! Yes I missed 6 bucks and one doe in archery. Right before I left to hunt, my wife at the time came running out on the poarch, as I was loading up the truck, holding a EPT test ! She said ” I’am pregnant” ! Very unexpected ! Ended up being son #2 “Waylan”. Anyway like ya’ said went back to the range, after buying a new True Glow round sight, geting rid of peep sight, switching back to a glove. getting rid of the kisser and going back to a simple ol’ flipper rest. See I tried to do all the the things all the “modern” archery hunters did at the local range. Thats when I decided to go back to what I know best, and stop listening to what ever body was telling me I should do. Ended up gettin’ a decent 8 pointer and doe that year. Lesson learned, dont listen to other people when you know whats good for you !If yer a guitarist and you play strats into Marshalls dont let people talk you into a les paul into Mesa-boogie and vis versa ! Amen !

Dec 02, 2011 O.K.
by: Brr Black I was hunting in archery, up in the corner of a field. I could see my pick-up about 400 yards away. At about 6:00 I look towards my truck, and see movement. I pull up my binoculars and see these two nice bucks fighting each other not 20 yards from my truck!
