Hunting Mishap

We’re not sure if this is a true story but it makes for fun reading.

ABSOLUTELY A TRUE STORY HEARD ON A WISCONSIN RADIO STATION REPORTING ON THE INCIDENT.


A guy buys a new  Lincoln Navigator for $42,500.00 with monthly  payments of $560.00. He and a friend go duck hunting in upper Wisconsin.  It’s mid-winter; and of course all of the lakes are frozen.  These two guys go out on the ice with their GUNS, a DOG, and of course the new NAVIGATOR.


They decide they want to make a natural  looking open water area for the ducks to focus on, something for the  decoys to float on.  Now making a hole in the icelarge enough to invite a passing duck, is going to take a  little more power than the average drill auger can produce.  So, out of the back of the new  Navigator comes a stick of dynamite with a short 40  second-fuse.

Our two  Rocket Scientists, afraid they might slip on the ice while trying to run  away after lighting the fuse (and becoming toast, along with the Navigator),  decide on the following course of action: they light the 40 second fuse; then, with a  mighty thrust, they throw the stick of dynamite as far away as  possible.


Remember a  couple of paragraphs back when I mentioned the NAVIGATOR, the GUNS, and the DOG…?  Let’s  talk about the dog:  A highly trained Black Lab used for RETRIEVING; especially things  thrown by the owner.  You guessed  it, The dog takes off across the ice at a high rate of speed and grabs the  stick of dynamite, with the burning 40-second fuse, just as it hits the ice.

The two men swallow, blink, start waving their arms  and, with veins in their necks swelling to resemble stalks of  rhubarb, scream and holler at the dog to stop.  The dog, now  apparently cheered on by his master, keeps coming. One hunter panics,  grabs the shotgun and shoots the dog. The shotgun is loaded with #8 bird shot, hardly big enough to stop a Black Lab.


The dog stops for a moment, slightly confused, then contunues on.   Another shot, and this time the dog, still standing, becomes really confused and of course terrified, thinks these two  geniuses have gone insane.


The dog takes off to find cover, UNDER the brand new Navigator.  The men  continue to scream as they run.  The red hot exhaust pipe on the truck touches the dog’s rear end; he yelps, drops the dynamite under the truck and takes off after his  master.

Then KA  BOOOOOOOOOOOOM!   The  truck is blown to bits and sinks to the bottom of the lake, leaving the two idiots standing there with ‘I can’t believe this just happened’ looks on their faces.

The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by  illegal use of  explosives is NOT COVERED by the policy. And he still had yet to make the first  of those $560.00 a month payments.

The dog is okay….doing fine.
