    Hunting Oddities

    Anyone had anything strange/odd/weird/bizarre or just a bit peculiar happen to them whilst out on a hunting trip?

    I'll start the ball rolling

    I've shot 5 deer so far in my short hunting career (3yrs) and i've shot all of them in the neck!

    So you would have been pissed to see the user name neckshot had already been taken.
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    It's been absolutely amazing - no bullshit - but every time I go hunting, I come back happy!!! Must be that bloody good bush water.

    A while back now, went out one evening to knock over some bunnies with my hunting mate, as we were leaving his place I distinctly told his heavily pregnant wife "Don't go into labour while we're out"

    Guess what she went and did...

    Am fairly sure that's going to be a once-off type event in my life!

    Not hunting but, I used to fish a spot in Sydney that needed a sketchy climb down a cliff face to get to.
    Anyways was climbing out one day and popped my head up on top of the cliff
    about 5 meters in front of me was a very pretty little brown bullet hole, Took me a minute or two to register what was going on.
    Some bloke and his misses must of jumped over the safety fence and decided it was a good place to have a nature one.
    He was having a lazy one laying on his back,
    I had a urge to tap the bullet hole with the tip of my fishing rod, but didn't.
    After sitting there for a minute or two, deciding what to do (didn't want to spoil his fun,didn't want them to think I was some perv lurking in the scrub)
    I had to walk right past them to get out,

    Years ago a mate n I had shot a deer in the Bluies, and sat down during the carry out for a breather. Nek minit a nice sized sow runs through our spot. Dog chases, I stick, we congratulate. Nek minit the boar that had been chasing it ran towards us. Dog grabs, mate sticks that one! Not a bad trip at all.........

    Were you aiming at the neck each time?

    the last goat I got, I cut up for dog food, someone had shot it in the behind with a shotgun.

    I got a three legged possum a while ago too.

    Any body been up totem pole gully up the Wairoa gorge in Nelson? I always heard rumours about it then one day I was following an old over grown track up a gully and came to a bit of a basin where there was obvious drainage trenchs and pits etc, then I come across a hole about 300mm wide and beside it was the rotting remnants of a totem pole. Really random little spot in the middle of no where, apparently hippies used to live up there back in the 60's growing their "whacky tobaccy"
