I know everyone has heard some crazy story in their lives that you never forget and tell others for a good laugh like it was hearing it for the first time. Whats some of yours?

I had a fellow co-worker once tell us that several years back had hernia surgery thus restricting him from lifting heavy weight. He was bow hunting and saw a doe so he placed his pin and purposely sent the arrow flying right up her butt and watched her collapse. Got down gathered his things and walked over to her and he said he lifted up on the arrow shift that was sticking out and she stood up and he walked her all the way back to the truck and popped the tail gate and lifted up on the arrow and she jumped in the bed of the truck and he then pulled the arrow out and she died perfectly in the back of the truck.

Let's hear yours.

This guy was famous for his fibs. He would get mad if u laughed at him. Thisiisn't hunting but the same guys said he was mowing his yard and ran over a frog. Puzzled he was after no guts and legs came out of the mower. So he stopped immediately and got down with the blade still on and looked and the Frog was hopping the blade to keep from getting cut.

Not really a "hunting" lie.... but does involve the outdoors....

Back in the day, while I was still working construction, we were working on a jobsite building a road and digging some dump-pits for a local plant.

My supervisor knew a guy that had a pet python. The friend gave him the pythons shed skin for my supervisors grandson to take to school for show & tell. While working on this specific site, rattlesnakes got ran over from time to time.... one such snake was left under the fuel wagon for a few days as a reminder to watch where you were walking.

Well my supervisor got the idea to pull a prank on the safety guy. He placed that python shed out on a pile of old utility poles and when the safety guy came around checking on things that morning.... "casually" brought that snake skin to his attention. Guy freaked out about how big that "rattlesnake" would be.... but was told the story after the laughing stopped.... and then the safety guy took the skin to his office.

That afternoon the safety guy came around with it and gave it back to my supervisor..... told him not to bring it back. Said no telling how many hours of lost time were from plant workers coming in and out of his office to look at that "rattlesnake" skin.... He also said the grounds workers were tore all to pieces and threatening to quit on the spot unless they got a raise in the name of "hazardous conditions" pay.

Not a tall tale but kind of a funny....last year I shot a doe with my muzzleloader late in the evening. My buddy and I couldn't find it. My son and 4 year old grandson came in that night and bright and early we all went out to look for the doe.

After about an hour my son found it. A bobcat had covered it up and chewed on it's hind leg. As we drug it up to a field my grandson said "him shot in da leg"...we tried to explained to him that it was shot through the lungs and a bobcat chewed on it's leg but he insisted.

My middle son showed up at noon and my grandson went straight to him and said "Poppy shot da deers in da leg"...son said "was it limping"...grandson said (after rolling his eyes)"no...him dead"

Yep, same as fishing. When telling your story to these types, you have to weigh your fish or measure your deer on their scales. On their scale, a 3.5 lb fish is actually over 5 and a 100" deer is at least 135". \:\)

I had posted this one for some reason here a while back. Sorry if you have already heard.

Went hunting with one of my friends and at around 9:00 I hear the Boom. So, I sat and waited until I was done then went over to see what he killed.

So, I get there, and it's a doe. No big deal right? Well I don't know if he was ashamed of killing a doe around the rut or what it was but here is the story that followed.

"There was about 12 deer in the field, a couple little bucks, some does, and a nice mature 8 point. He came out walking straight towards me. So I waited until I got a broadside shot at him. Then this doe comes up to him and they were both facing each each, both broadside at about 80 yds. Well, then they started either kissing each other or licking each others noses or something. So, anyways I took aim at his shoulder and pulled the trigger and I'll be d**ned if the doe didn't drop. I swear I didn't mean to kill her. That isn't the first time I have missed a deer but it is the first time that I missed and killed another deer."

Needless to say, I wasn't buying it. The doe got shot right in the shoulder, which is where he shoots all of his deer. I swear every time he goes in the woods there is a crazy story that follows. Most of it is all BS but it really does make going hunting with him even funner. We always have a good time. I think all he does while he is hunting is think of how he is going to tell the story of his hunt and make it seem like the most extraoridnary thing you have ever heard in your life.

Well, one that became world class was one I started in a duck blind yrs ago. We had five regulars in a club, along with myself, and one guy invited a friend who turned out to be a diehard Tn. football fan. This guy had been to over a hundred home games at Knoxville, and he lived for it. We had all been in the blind an hour or so, and one of the members mentioned to him that I had played at Tn. back during the seventies. He moved down beside me, and then it started. This guy asked me what yrs. I played. I said 78-82. He started naming my teammates, of course I knew them all. Then I mentioned how I had ran a 4.35 forty. I thought he smelled a rat, kinda thought that was awful fast. Of course, I laid right in there with it. Then he asked my most memorable play, and I told him about picking one off against Alabama, running it back for the winning TD with less than a minute to play. He looked at me and said" I remember that play, I remember that play". I knew then he had swallowed it hook, line and sinker, even though I could hear snickering on the back seat. This lasted all day, me reliving my days as a Vol. Finally, late that evening I got to feeling bad, and confessed it was all a little lie. He almost broke down and cried. I promised myself that was the last time for that tale. He took it a little to serious, however looking at my physique I can understand why he fell for it. The part about me running thru the "T" 24 times was also convincing. I have trouble spelling Tennessee, much less played ball there, but I do love the Vols.

300+ yard shots with a 30/30

I had a man tell me once that he shot deer through the front legs with an arrow so they couldn't walk off. He would then shoot them in the vitals. He said he never had to track his deer and he had never lost one.

I hear this one almost every year:

I saw this huge 12 point buck that would score 193 3/8 B&C. He had a 24 inch spread with lots of mass. He would field dress a 195 1/2 pounds. I COULD NOT GET A SHOT AT HIM!

Able to score and weigh him but could not get a shot at him???
BTW, this is in modern gun season.

many times adrenaline and the fast motion of the shot makes it hard to tell where you hit... I thought I'd hit my first archery buck just right, but it was a few inches farther back and he went a lot farther than i expected before dying.

I've seen too many guys coming out of the woods saying they let a nice 6 point walk and see them at the checking station with a small Spike or young Doe. "I let it walk." Whatever dude \:\) I just laugh at them and go on.

I don't get the "or young doe" part, but I've seen the same thing many times.

We used to all go hang out at a little country store at night during hunting season. There was this one guy that always had a story, but never had a deer. The conversation would go like this every time:
Me: "Hey, did you see anything this evening?"
Him: "Yeah, I heard a big 9pt early, then heard a big ten come by about dark."
Me: "You heard???"
Him: "Yeah, I could tell by how it was walking."

He would tell you this every time we saw him.

Does not apply with the spike in anyway, I don't shoot spikes. Only a small doe if I make a mistake thinking it is a larger doe, but I have let hundreds of bucks walk of all sizes only to kill a doe or does, almost always a mature doe, I do my best to never shoot a small doe. I have had bucks and does standing together, many nice bucks (not great bucks, just nice deer) and I will shoot the biggest doe every time. Personally, I try my best to not shoot a buck unless I think it is as good or hopefully better than what I have killed in my lifetime. I believe don't kill a small buck, kill a doe. The state has the limit at 3 does per day for a reason I am thinking.

This is not a lie but I'll throw it in because it relates to someone's post. I actually did pass up 100 or more bucks one year. They were all small and we were filming and hunting in 10-states and two Canadian provinces. I probably hunted over 100-days with a bow that year. It was one of those years when the 18-month old bucks just followed me everywhere I went. When you do the math, it isn't that hard to believe.

I just did an article on a guy who, with native trackers, tracked a lion over 12-miles through the Kalahari Desert in 100+ heat before killing it.

I could care less how old they are, in Tennessee, if I can see a 140" or better buck I am shooting him, I don't care if it is "6 months old". Most hunters think they know how to age a deer on the hoof, many don't and it seems when I do see what I perceive to be a buck I want to kill it almost always works out that I only have a very small timeframe to make a decision on whether or not to shoot. If you hunt an area that you can watch a buck for a long time and make a call, good for you. This aging crap and the tv shows that promote it is just that, CRAP. If that is what makes you happy, then great. I do try my best to kill a "mature" deer, whether it is a buck or a doe, but if a buck steps out and large enough or unique enough antlers including a 130" 8 pointer (it seems I hear 130" 8 pointer all the time, most have no clue what a 130" 8 pointer is), then I will do my best to kill that deer. It cracks me up to hear people say (I heard it yesterday) that they are watching a 150" 1-1/2 year or 2-1/2 year old buck. I would bet in Tennessee, that 150", probably even a 140" buck, has some age on him.

Aging a buck on-the-hoof that you only get the briefest glimpse of can be virtually impossible, without years of experience. And that's one of the many reasons I run trail-cams. I don't have to age the buck when I see him. I've already aged him from pictures and recognize him by his antler configuration instantly. I know if he is a shooter or not at almost first glance.

But I also agree, a 140? He's dead, I don't care how old he is. Heck a 120 is dead. You aren't going to find any 120 yearlings in TN, and very, very few 120 2 1/2 year-olds.

Odds are very, very high they are full of it. Largest yearling I've ever seen in TN was around 100 gross. Largest 2 1/2, near 130.

I saw a pictrure yesterday, taken on July 26, in Hickman County of two bucks that right now would exceed 135. That is allowing for the exaggeration of the velvet. One might possibly top 140. They appeared from the picture to be 3.5 and I sure don't think much older. They were for sure, dang nice TN deer. I know the man who showedme thepics and the trail cam time and date was on them. I believe they were legit in all aspects.

HH,
My point was (a) we can't all kill 3 does a day. Additionally, my point was (b) a 3-1/2 yr old deer or older will not walk past me regardless of his head gear most likely. I'm not some master deer ager by no means, but I've tried to learn it and practice it and I think I'm right more than I'm wrong as far as knowing if a buck is 3-1/2 or older. I just don't like using the term "I don't kill small bucks" because if he's old enough I don't care that his head gear might be small. Last year, I killed a nice 8 pointer. I would have swore he was 4-1/2+ and the consensus on here was that he was 4-1/2 or 5-1/2. Well, he was aged at 3-1/2 by the jaw bone (not by me) which can also be somewhat subjective I realize. So, for me, at least I feel comfortable that he fit "my" standards of being 3-1/2 or better.

Well, one that became world class was one I started in a duck blind yrs ago. We had five regulars in a club, along with myself, and one guy invited a friend who turned out to be a diehard Tn. football fan. This guy had been to over a hundred home games at Knoxville, and he lived for it. We had all been in the blind an hour or so, and one of the members mentioned to him that I had played at Tn. back during the seventies. He moved down beside me, and then it started. This guy asked me what yrs. I played. I said 78-82. He started naming my teammates, of course I knew them all. Then I mentioned how I had ran a 4.35 forty. I thought he smelled a rat, kinda thought that was awful fast. Of course, I laid right in there with it. Then he asked my most memorable play, and I told him about picking one off against Alabama, running it back for the winning TD with less than a minute to play. He looked at me and said" I remember that play, I remember that play". I knew then he had swallowed it hook, line and sinker, even though I could hear snickering on the back seat. This lasted all day, me reliving my days as a Vol. Finally, late that evening I got to feeling bad, and confessed it was all a little lie. He almost broke down and cried. I promised myself that was the last time for that tale. He took it a little to serious, however looking at my physique I can understand why he fell for it. The part about me running thru the "T" 24 times was also convincing. I have trouble spelling Tennessee, much less played ball there, but I do love the Vols.


Tick I have to call you out on this one. You broke that promise to yourself because you told me the same thing last year in the duck blind! Hahahaha

Have an uncle who believes, "Coffee is natural, from the earth, so that scent will not spook them. And, deer smell smoke all the time from people burning brush or whatever, so smoking a cigarette while in the stand will not spook them either."

I guess you can get away with a lot if the wind is in your favor, but I wouldn't chance it. It's the logic that gets me more than anything though.

BSK, I only posted what I was told, no way do I believe there are 1 or 2 year old 150" class running around.

As far as trail cameras go, I don't use them for many reasons. Cost is one. Second is the majority of pics that I am shown (I do enjoy seeing the pics and have nothing against trail cams) those deer are not killed, if they are many times they are killed by someone on another farm and many times the deer that show up on trail cams are never even seen during the season. Also, with the way bucks roam, especially at times in November here, in many of the places I see bucks, a glimpse or even 30 seconds is not going be anywhere near enough time to know for sure and the majority of bucks I have killed (that when I saw them I knew for sure I wanted to shoot) I had never seen before.

I still believe it is a very difficult thing to get a picture of a mature buck, especially with large antlers, AND then kill that buck on the property where you got the pictures. I stay out of the places as much as I can where I hunt. From farming to family members to me hunting when I hunt there is way more than enough pressure on the areas I hunt.

Well a 3-1/2 year old or older deer that is under 130" is more than likely not going to get shot at by me (a big 8 pointer will, a 130" 8 pointer is a great buck), but for the most part I am not going to shoot a 100, 110 or 120" buck, I don't care how old, unless I completely midjudge the rack. I have had it happen both ways. I have killed deer that I though were smaller than what they were and I have killed deer that had much a better rack than what I thought. I would much rather shoot a 4-1/2 or 5-1/2 year old buck, especiall one that had a great rack at 3-1/2. Of course just seeing that buck is tough, much less getting a chance to make a kill.

Yup. We'll photograph 35-45 bucks every year using our property. Of those, we will kill 2-4. Neighbors probably kill double that.

No problems Headhunter. I use trail-cams for a completely different reason (tracking the number, age, and antler scores of bucks that use a property, as well as when they appear on the property). That said, they provide other benefits. Knowing there really are mature bucks running around keeps me excited, and I like I mentioned, I no longer have to "field-judge" bucks at the moment of truth while hunting. I know each buck, and his previously-judged age, the second I glimpse him. That helps take some of the "judgment" pressure off when hunting.

My Dad wasn't a hunter. My Uncle and Grandfather never offered to take me either as a kid. I didnt start hunting till I was 19. Couldn't ever get land to hunt on. Finally at age 29 I finally killed a Spike. Now at 37, I have several nice mounts that being said no way will I let a legal Deer walk. My goal is the same as the Swamp people, Fill my tags, Fill the Freezer and make up for lost time. All those years of not having land to hunt on, having to figure it out on my own and listening to family and co-workers ride you about not killing anything. After a 16 point, 10 point, Two 8 points, and a nice 6 point hang in my man cave, I feel like Toby Keith "How do like me now!" The only way I let a deer walk is I either dont have a tag for it or I dont have a clear shot.

Biggest Lie you can say. Dont ever, ever tell a kid that their Buck isn't a Trophy. I will find you \:\) To me the greatest TROPHY is seeing a 8 or 9 kid with a Fork Horn Buck and they think that its a Booner. And I couldnt agree more.

I see this multiple times every year on here. I know they exist, but it takes a heck of an 8 pointer to make 130.

Yep. A 120" 8 pointer is a 130" to most people. I don't think they mean to lie.. just don't know how to score which is not uncommon.. even on here lol

I work on a farm in Brentwood and we had some contractor out doing some work. He asked if we were hunters. I was not aware of the huge Mule Deer population in College Grove. He tells us that his buddy killed a 314in Mulley in College Grove. Aparently he was in the Tennesseean as well. LOL

I was hunting with my brother at his lease in Va., sitting around at lunch when an old boy from Ga. walked in and my brother asked how he did. He said he took a shot (250yrds) and all but missed except for it's hoof. He then reached in his pocket and pulled out a speck and said he'd found this part of it's hoof next to where it stood.

This one's funny and maybe true. At night we were all getting packed up and my brother asked a local old boy how he did. He said he'd line'r up on one and squeezed it off. There was a dull thud and the bullet fell out in front of him. Then he scratched his head and exclaimed, "I never knew you were supposed to use 2 pellets in them guns, I was only using one". It was ML season.

Actually a lot of people's 130" 8 pointers might be lucky to scare 110". A 110" deer is a good deer in my area, but a 130" 8 point is a heck of a deer. I have seen it on here. In one post someone will say that they won't shoot one unless it is 135" plus for instance, but in another post "slobber" over a 105" deer. It makes no difference to me what someone shoots, but I have to laugh when I see this. \:\)

More power to anyone willing to hold out for a 130 or even 140-class buck. But in my area, that means holding out for an above average (or even WAY above average) mature buck. I'll be the first to admit, I'm just not that good of a hunter to expect that.

First, I am not advocating anyone hold out for a 130 or 140-class buck. HOWEVER, if we weren't so eager in killing off the largest antlered 2 1/2's (which are scoring in the 100 to 120 range), we WOULD be seeing our AVERAGE mature buck scoring more like 130-plus, and a heck of a lot more scoring over 140.

Rather than you not being that good of a hunter, the issue may be you're such a good hunter that almost none of your top-end 2 1/2's are living to 4 1/2 or older. While you eagerly pass the "average" 2 1/2's, you eagerly kill the largest antlered 2 1/2's?

Guilty as charged (and I agree with your premise). But heck, I'm not even a good enough hunter (or not willing to do what it takes) to consistently have opportunities at mature bucks. Now and then, yes. But not often enough to offset the effort.

BUT, if all we were doing was to let those top-end yearling and 2 1/2-yr-old bucks walk, we would be seeing a lot of 130-plus class 3 1/2's (certainly not a mature buck).

By the way, tell us again what your highest scoring buck scored and what was his age? And just think, if you had seen him when he was 2 1/2, you would have killed a 120-class 2 1/2 instead of a 160-class 3 1/2? Seems a small price to pay in passing up those better 2 1/2's in exchange for great opportunity at a world-class 3 1/2 or older?

157 and change. I would love to know what he was at 2 1/2.

Nah, I'll still pop the first top-end 2 1/2 I see (but then pass any 2 1/2s after that), simply because "big" bucks are not my reason for hunting anymore. I just want to kill a "decent" buck each year and have fun with my family. Besides, we kill only a small percentage of the older bucks in the area, and we still have at least one TN Registry caliber buck using our place each year, and have for almost a decade. We just rarely see/kill THAT buck!

Yep! You may have killed the new #1 Typical Tennessee Buck --- just shot him a couple years too soon! \:D A 3 1/2-yr-old old scoring 157!

A few years ago we had what appeared to be a 2 1/2 that scored in the 120's. Some how, he survived another year. He grossed 167 and some change when taken 1 year later. I've seen many 2 1/2's scoring in the 110 to 125 range (in TN) ---- just extremely rare that one of those survives to 3 1/2. A friend of mine killed a 2 1/2 in Obion County that was a clean 5x5 grossing 146.

Guess it's all in how one defines "decent". \:D
To me, "decent" generally means 4 1/2 or older.
And a mistake is 3 1/2 or younger.

My hope is we will TREND more to defining "decent" based generally more on age than antlers. Then we will all have more opportunity at really "decent" bucks. \:\)

Odds are very, very high they are full of it. Largest yearling I've ever seen in TN was around 100 gross. Largest 2 1/2, near 130.


The 126" deer I killed with a bow last year turned out to be 2.5 years old. I thought he would have been older but I was wrong. If I had it to do over I would probably shoot him again but man I am always thinking of what he would have looked like this year or next...

For me, 100+ is "decent."

This my buck from last year. I had a blast killing him, and relive the memories ever time I see the picture. And before anyone asks, I've killed dozens of bucks just like this one, and every one was special.

I've also killed quite a few bucks larger (a few much larger) and older, and they are all special too.

I like your high grading theory, always have. We could no doubt see bigger deer if we let the 2.5 120's walk BUT I know why BSK shoots the higher end young bucks... he knows that he'll probably never see them in daylight after 4.5 ;\)

I find that comment offensive Master Chief. Why would you ever give me some much credit? I won't see them in daylight at 3 1/2!

It's the modern rifle... it's so easy, it completely degrades any existing skill to almost nonexistent, which would explain why you are lucky to have a horny 2 1/2 year old deer stumble by you in late November instead of skillfully hunting anything older than 3 1/2. The degradation of skill due to modern rifles was already apparent a good while ago... dumbs the brain down, makes one do things like park their ATV on a live rail road track for example...

Now pick up the bow, gain some real skill, and you can become one of The Elite. You get to beat your chest at any chance you get on any internet hunting forum.

That sounds about like my luck (and by luck I mean my lack of hunting skill lol) I'm not even kidding.. the few 3.5+ deer I've seen were smart enough to not get in shooting range and the ones that did slowly turned around and walked away. Every year I see more big bucks so I guess I'll kill one EVENTUALLY

What was wrong with throwing 1,400 lbs of lime with a green plastic feed scoop? I didn't understand their incredulous looks...

Pulling a disk with my truck. Round and 'round in tight circles in very hot weather caused the power-steering pump to burst, spraying volatile power-steering fluid all over the hot engine block, which in turned caused the fluid to vaporize into a big "cloud." When that cloud (I thought it was steam from a busted radiator hose or something) finally ignited, the whole front end of the truck went up in a fireball.

My brother-in-law and I--who were in the truck at the time--bailed out pretty quick!

It was hot enough to liquefy aluminum. The steering column melted.

Yea, I see that it melted a whole bunch of stuff. So, the fire was, at the very least 1200 degrees. Wow

BSK, your stories about trains, trucks, and tornadoes would be some GREAT material to add into the Duck Dynasty series!

I've had my share of adrenalin rushes while hunting, farming, and and chasing tornadoes, but I can't top your experiences!

I think we need to start a thread for members to share their hair-raising stories in.

Strangely, at the very instant it occurred, I wasn't that frightened by having my ATV ripped right out of my hands by a speeding locomotive. It wasn't until a couple of hours afterwards that the near-death experience finally sunk in. THEN I really got the shakes.

To this day, an involuntary shiver runs down my spine every time I hear a train whistle. It really creeps me out to even see a train go by close up. Feeling the vibrations and sounds close up makes me physically ill.

I first actually jumped on the ATV (brand new). But when I glanced up, I realized the train was right on top of me and I wasn't going to have time to start it and get it in gear. So I jumped off, grabbed the front and rear racks, and started dragging it sideways away from the tracks. All of a sudden, I wasn't hanging on to it anymore. My hands were just empty, and the train was whipping by about a foot from my face. Never felt a thing--not a jerk or thump or anything.

When the realization finally struck that the train had hit my ATV, I looked down the tracks and saw my ATV flying about 150 feet through the air. I still can't understand why the ATV didn't explode into pieces. The train just "tossed it," and it landed on it's tires in a muddy ditch.

The train just clipped the front corner (I had the ATV about 2-3 feet away from the tracks when it got hit).

Yeah, I must be a cat with 9 lives. I think I've only got or two left though. The day before the "train incident," I was struck twice by a cottonmouth in the left ankle. Thank you Rocky Snake Boots!

Somewhat akin to being struck by lighting on a beautiful sunshiny day, too, as that cottonmouth got you during late December?

Folks, I'm telling you, if you value your safety, best to stay a long way away from BSK! \:D
Every day, he is an accident looking for a place to happen!

I think it was around January 12th. A sudden sunny warm day when temps climbed into the mid 70s. I walked across a small pond's earthen dam, and the cottonmouth was curled up sunning himself on the dam. Never saw him until he got me.

BSK,

Were there any consequences from the railroad company? Was there a report filed or anything of that nature?

Consequences? You should have seen the litany of police cars, railroad officials, and ambulances lined up when I went back to recover the ATV! They already knew who owned the ATV (called Honda with the VIN). They were going to arrest me for being on the tracks. The train conductor was convinced he had killed me and rescue workers were looking up in trees for my body. Yeah, there were consequences! Luckily, in the end, everyone just wrote it off as being a bad experience (I was told the train engineer was seriously traumatized, thinking he had killed me) and no charges were filed. I really had no idea it was literally illegal to be on a railroad track right-of-way at any location other than a crossing.

Now, I bet you wouldn't walk or ride down a track again even if it was legal

So, the train stopped? I guess it took them a few miles.

Last night a girl parked HER PARENTS car to close to the track to walk to a concert. When I came around the corner I saw it and here were the results. Glad nobody was around or hurt.

Oh yeah I was only doing 25mph when I hit it. The force of a train is unimaginable.
