Somebody put it out there. It was a rooster, might have been a fighting thing.

I set up a game cam on one of my duck spots, saw plenty of ducks, but got a close up shot of what looks to be an emu or something along those lines. Never seen it while I'm hunting though.

Buddy of mine and I were riding 4 wheelers on a bunch of land behind his house our senior yr of highschool ('03). there are several ponds back there and they were pretty low at the time because hadn't had much rain. about 30yds out from the shore line, you could see something just barely sticking out of the water that looked like a HUGE turtle shell or something....

went and got a small flat-bottom boat to investigate, turns out it was a car....a VW beetle. pulled it out of the pond with a bulldozer....it had very obviously been there for several yrs....rusted all to hell....still had 1 or 2 tires on it....old school mud tires. someone obviously had used it as a mud toy. all we can figure is at some point yrs ago, the water was very very low in that pond and they were riding and got stuck or something

first strange thing, My wife and I turned into one of the back fields on our place, and their was a car with the door open. I pulled up to check it out, and some black dude pops up on the other side of the car putting his pants on. Pretty pissed, I say "dafuq are you doing here?". He told me he was using the restroom and was about to leave. I say fine, hurry it up. As I was pulling out, I see a woman pop her head over the back seat, look and pop back down.......I just chuckled and left.

2nd thing. I was riding the dirt road that divides our place, and on someone elses property up the road found a car burning in a driveway into the planted pines. It had been burning for a while, and had probably burnt up 10 acres of the dudes property. Apparently the car was stolen from a nearby town, and ditched/set on fire.

My Hunting "mentor" pulled into the drive of his hunting club one time, and there was a car blocking the gate. He could see somebody slumped over. He assumed they were sleeping, and used another gate. He came back out at noon and the car was still there. He walked up for a closer look, and the back of the dudes head was missing. It was a gay dude from a nearby town that had just found out he had AIDS and drove out and did the deed.

The weekend before last, my wife and I hunted a wild rice lake about 40 minutes from our house. We had a great evening shoot, and were in good spirits. Coming down a remote old highway that runs along the Canadian side of the Ontario/Minnesota border, it was pitch black out and I had the brush lights running on the truck. We come to a curve and as I make the turn, something caught my eye in the bush - something red and shiny, but I didn't stop. A minute later, it was still bugging me what that red thing was, so I turn back and when we pull up and shine the lights in the bush, its clear that its a motorcycle. The area is bad for break-ins and stolen cars, so my first thought is someone ditched a stolen bike in the bush. I left my wife in the truck, got my headlamp and went in for a look. I noticed something laying on the ground, so went a bit closer and came upon the rider, who had clearly broken his neck upon going off the road. There was nothing I could do for him, and we had no cell service so we set the odometer on the truck to zero and drove to the highway. When we called 911 we were able to give them the Kilometer mark, but it still took them about an hour and a half to find him. Makes me think that if we hadn't stopped, and if the snow covered him up he may have been there till spring.

It was pretty eerie and surreal, especially on such a dark, black night. Sure changed our spirits in a hurry. Sounds like he was a nice, regular guy with a family and just made a bad turn.

This is a story told to me by my old boss, who at the time was working for the Corps of Engineers down at Rend Lake in Southern IL. He said that he and another guy were out driving just checking on a few areas at one of their parks, when they came across a trail that looked like it had been stamped down by people, and not cut by them. They decided to follow it back to see what these people were doing back there. He said they got mid way down the trail and started finding gay porn mags strewn about all over the place. At the end of the trail was a bunch of mattresses laid out with gay porn, rubbers, and lube all over. It has since been referred to as the trail of disgust, and is known gay cruising area.

So you spend a lot of time down the trail of disgust.

Many years ago I was fishing with my Dad on the lake where my parents had a lake cabin. We went to the to the shallow end to run trot lines and ran aground on something. The lake was low so we didn't think much of it, except we had difficulty getting off the obstacle since it was so big.

So I take the paddle up to the bow of our little jon boat and try and push us off. low in behold, I see the bottoms of two shoes when I look down at the obstacle.

The shoes were sticking out of a block of concrete.

The concrete was encased in a 55 gallon oil drum.

We went and got the law who extracted the poor fella in his concrete tomb.

He slept with the fishes...

Still gives me the willies.

Nothing nearly as intriguing but......last year I came across and old blind on a new piece of property our owners bought......
this little hole is a bear to get to.....you have to paddle across a goudin and then walk bout two hundred yards in the woods to get to it.

I decided to sled a bunch of leftover wood to somehow reclaim this blind.......
On my sled trek across in the woods I came across four treated 2X4's and full sheet of treated 1/2 plywood......had been sitting under leaves for a good while so it was all nice and oak stained for the blind..........

A marijuana grow, kinda gets your heart rate going when by yourself.

When I worked at a recreation park a few summers I would always find used rubbers and drug needles, and walked up on two of my former HS classmates bumping uglies. Gave us a chance to catch up.
