I shot at a big bear; and made what looked like a good hit. I started tracking it at night; and a short distance from the shot found the back half of the arrow and took a picture. It rained hard and I never found the bear.

You tell me what this is ??  -

Whump Sez; What kind of camera are you using? If it is 35mm film it happened during processing of the negatives or when they printed the picture. Since your entire picture is not over exposed I would say a screw up in the processing. If it is a digital camera your guess is as good as anybodies. Hunt safe. [Confused]

You had your finger in front of the lens, and the flash hit it.

Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.

Falk... that statement (or whatever a Bigfoot might want to do) scares me more than being eaten !

I think coming up with a way to communicate would be awesome. Maybe get him / her to let me in on some of the best huting areas in the neighborhood. Talk about original "Stump Sitters".

I'm with Killdeer - that sure looks like a finger to me. If not that then something else was hanging down in front of the lense. Failing that - you say it was raining - maybe thats a result of some bit of your camera being wetter than normal.

The flash caught a raindrop passing in front of the lens? Lin

Whump Sez; Ok ----"3 Red lights in the pasture" besides I have a headache from reading the cougar thread. Several years ago my brother-in-law and I made a trip up to the barn to shoot rats with 22 pistols. We would shoot a while and stand outside and let the barn quiet down for a while. It was a little foggy that night. During one of our secessions outside my friend pointed out some pulsating red lights about 300 yds away coming down a rd just like a car with the headlights out. Now we were behind a locked gate and a fenced pasture so no one could get in there without tearing something down. You could see that the lights were on the back of something at the time as they were shielded. As the lights approached we could see across the end of this thing now and the lights were clearly visible going on and off pulsating, but we could not see any particular shape of the object they were on. The object turned and went across a ditch that was straight down about 10feet deep, at this time we both realized we were not looking at a vehicle such as a car or truck. Now at this point the object was only about 70 yds from us but moving away very slowly.We also never heard any motor noise of any kind. I hurried off the hill we were on, climbed in and out of the ditch and walked toward the last position of the lights. When I arrived there was only black angus cows herded up and they scattered a bit as I walked in between them. We rode the perimeter of the place and looked for any sign that someone had driven through the fence and could find nothing. We both are still scratching our heads about this one. Hunt safe. [Confused]

This is a great thread...but I was all pumped to go out solo in a few weeks and now I'm ..well not as much so. I might start a thread about solo outings that didn't scare people.

On the owl stories. The husband of a friend of mine from HS was in a tree. Think it was morning but he was fully camoed and head net etc. If you've seen an owl fly you know there isn't any noise so without warning a big owl basically removed his eye. He managed to climb down from the tree and find his buddy to help him get out. Guess the eye was there but can't see much after it was repaired. Guess that speaks to the wiseness of doing a solo hunt also.

Keep 'em coming.
