The thread on dangerous hunts is great. It got me to thinking about strange things that have happened to me while hunting. The first thing that comes to mind is this one:

I was perched in an enormous oak tree one October morning. It was very foggy and was taking what seemed like forever to get daylight. I usually take a paperback book with me when I hunt, so I decided to take it out and try to read. When I got it out, there wasn't quite enough light to be able to read, so I started looking at the pictures in the middle of the book.

After about a minute, I glance up and a small buck appears like a dream out of the fog and is headed toward me. I stand up and prepare to shoot. He makes his way down a firebreak and will pass within 10 yards. I draw my bow and lightly whistle to stop him. The white feathers spin perfectly and I see it strike him on the money. He makes a short run and I hear him fall.

When I climb down from the tree, I walk over to where he was standing and find good blood and half of my arrow with the broadhead lying on the ground. I make my way down the blood trail at a steady walk as the wide head has really opened him up. About twenty yards into the trail, I find the other half of my arrow, the nock end, lying in the trail. I pick it up and continue down the trail. I find my buck after another twenty yards of trailing. He is beautiful. I inspect the entrance wound and then roll him over to look at the exit. THERE IS NO EXIT WOUND!!! [Eek!]

I took the buck home and skinned him out and there was absolutely no hole in him anywhere but where the arrow went in. I have rolled this over and over in my mind for years and I just can't explain what happened.

Any of you guys ever have anything strange happen while hunting that you just can't explain?

Years back I shot a doe and watched it run off about 30 yards and reach around with her mouth and pull out the arrow , she walked out of sight but only went about another 20 yards and bedded down for good . I had shot her quartering to me as 35 years ago that was thought to be a good shot . Fred

Could he have pulled the arrow out with his teeth and dropped the nock end down the trail?

or the arrow broke when he spun to run and the front half got hung up somehow? Saw your reply on the goals thread. Any hogs down that way? [Smile]

When a man shoots with a bow it is own vigor of body that drives the arrow, his own mind controls the missile's flight......His trained muscles and toughened thews have done the work

I had a very strange thing happen in Valleyview Alberta on a Canoe/Hunting trip down the little Smokey river. Maybe i shouldn't tell this one quite yet. I haven't been here long enough to build credibility....Ok..I'll wait awhile.

John, I can't figure it out. He didn't spin around when he ran, just continued on the way he was headed. And he busted out of there on impact and didn't have time to pull it out with his teeth. I thought it might be possible that he ripped it out with his hind leg by kicking at it, broke it after it came completely out, and then somehow managed to carry the nock end with him for the twenty yards running full tilt, but that seems far fetched. The point end of the arrow was lying in the middle of the firebreak exactly where he was standing when hit.
Yeah, we've got hogs around here, but it looks like I'm going to be hunting public land for a while. Just lost my hunting lease this year and don't know when I'll find another one. The paper companies in Georgia have been selling land like it's going out of style.

Alright ogopogoman, it's been long enough, don't leave us hangin' like that. That's just wrong. [Smile]

40 yrs, ago in Calif, I shot a big Jack Rabbit through the shoulders, and before I even started to walk towerd him, two more Jack's came in and started beating the hell out of him. Rabbits can scratch like a wild cat, and when I got to my Jack he was red and bloody on his head where they scratched him. I was to amused to think about shooting the other Jacks before they ran off. A Fish and Game officer told me weeks later, that sometimes animals turn on their own when wounded. Ever heard of something like that? Biff

I believe bison will turn on a wounded/dead animal.
