    And I'm not talking about crustaceans either.....................................:D :D :D

    You would think that what I do, and where I do it, I would have some scary stuff to talk about, but I really don't have much.

    Over the winter, I checked out an abandoned farmhouse outside of town where some poached deer had been found. Weird thing was one of them had not been butchered. Along with that, the house on the property, which was probably a hundred years old, and abandoned 50 year ago had some Satanic graffitti inside. Nothing real big and I attribute that to goofball kids that are starved for attention.

    So what do y'all have???????????????

    :D :D :D

    I've cleaned out section 8 tweaker houses and meth labs

    Treasure maps

    Porno pics glued to massive marble slabs

    All the drawers put in upside down with dollar bills taped to the bottom of them

    All windows and vents covered in tin with holes punched in them

    Cow skulls on the porch, one white, one black, both pentagrammed

    Appliances all had "good" or "bad" written on them

    Large cabinet TV with the screen broken out and a small TV inserted in the cavity upside down



    In old abandoned farm houses:



    Pheasants hung by the neck, handman style, dozens of them

    Animal corpses

    Periodicals from 1950

    Deep wells with bones in the bottom

    Of course, there's crazy Lyle....

    i was walking down a trail by my house, just looking at the ground for tracks, i was walking toward a fairly large rock outcropping to climb it.
    I was about 30 feet from the rocks, and i looked up, and a gigantic mountain lion had got to the top first, she was just staring at me.
    Not wanting to play king of the hill with her( and just about shatting myself at the same time), i just backed away real slow, and she got off the pile and did her own thing.
    pretty cool and wicked scary all at the same time

    The one that creeped me out the most was when I went camping with the wife and some friends who were all from Boulder. We get there and set up and they are making fun of me when I get my gun out of the truck, give it a once over and put it in the tent. "Jesus man, what are you afraid of, there's no bears here, why do you have to take that thing everywhere?" Over dinner I try to explain to them that it's not the bears, there are bad two legged animals everywhere and I just prefer to not be a victim. I get the whole Boulderite speech on guns and how wicked they are, blah, blah, blah.


    Well, midnight rolls around and we have been drinking around the fire for a while and all of a sudden this guy comes walking out of the trees with a big old pack on and walks up to the fire and plops his ass down. Says "Hi" and makes some small talk and gets a beer out of his pack, tells us he's making his way down the mountain. I go get my wife a jacket from the tent (and clip my holster onto my belt under my jacket) and come back and everyone is still kinda wierded out by this guy. Shortly after this he stops talking to them and just starts mumbling the words to "The End" (the doors song) which are some pretty freaky lyrics.

    He stops and puts his pack down and says he has to take a leak, as soon as he walks away, you guessed it: the Boulderites are all "hey man, you need to get that gun out of the tent!!" (yeah, no-sh*t hippies, did it as soon as he sat down) He comes back and I end up having to tell him that we're going to bed and he needs to leave as the granola boys look on, not willing to say a word. I had to kinda get in his face a little, but no mention or show of the gun. He left and then when I woke up in the morning the hippy tents were miraculously moved to within 3 feet of ours.

    At least one good thing came of it, Jon, one of the Boulderites was a convert. Bought his first gun a month later and has been shooting ever since.

    Here's a couple, nothing major.
    One time hiking solo and unarmed to a fishing spot in Oregon, I came upon a black bear about 40-50 yards ahead of me. Bear looked at me sniffing the breeze and I just backed up kinda slow while keeping my eyes on him and decided to fish elsewhere.
    A couple years ago up near Flagstaff, again solo but I was shooting jacks and just walking around not far off of a forest road when I came upon about a '89 chev sedan. Nothing strange about finding cars left out in the woods, but this one was'nt shot up and had air in all 4 tires.
    Something just did'nt feel right about it, so I made a cautious approach.
    I was thinking suicide car maybe but it turned to be a theft car. The engine and tranny were gone and the thieves had just stashed it. That one had my spidey sense going though.

    I was snowboarding in Canada on a closed trail with 2 of my other friends. We were going down and then we saw 2 ski patrol guys down on next to a creek that was going across the trail (thats why the trail was closed). We thought they were going to be pissed but we went down anyways, where else where we going to go? When we go to the creek gap, it was like only 6 wide, plus the landing was lower, so we could easily jump over it with out going fast at all. The 2 ski patrol guys are standing right next to it, well my one friend goes and jumps right over it, then me and my friend go at the same time, he slowed down alot before he jumped it, and I was right behind him, I kinda hit him right as we were about to go off. We both came short and fell down into it on each other. luckily if was frozen over so we didn't get wet, but we were yelling and blaming each other as we were trying to get off each other. Then one of the ski patrols in the a Canadian voice says "Shut the fock up you idiots" Well we both stood up and no joke, there was a huge ass moose standing no less than 10 feet from us. It was scary as crap, it was huge!!!!!!!!! luckily it was just sitting there eating, we slowly got up then jetted down the rest of the hill. It was pretty funny that didnt even see it until someone pointed it out to us.

    Oh and I have also been walking through a creek in the middle of the night and one of my friends shinned the flashlight on me from up on the land, and there was a beaver just swimming along like 3 feet in front of me.

    My wife Gerri, her sister Debbie, and a few of the girls went up and camped on a girl's weekend away. Pair of guys started stalking them and running through their campsite, et. When it starts to get dicey Debbie pulls out a .357 and covers the girls while they pack up and leave. :D This was back in 1984 when there were no cell phones. I love my sis-in-law. :haha:

    A few things...

    I saw a HUGE black bear going thru rubbish cans when I was camping in NH ,at a campground once!-:yikes: :yikes: -I had to take a leak,and as I was walking back from the bathroom,I heard a loud bang,the sound of a 55 gallon drum being tipped over!!-a big bear was pawing thru the trash,and when he spotted me,we both froze for a second--then he made a moaning sound,and ran off with something in his mouth!...I RAN back to my van,and didn't dare get out until daylight!..:eek1:

    Another scare was in my own backyard--I was out in the woods behind my house,looking for the source of a strange sound I'd heard...I got way out near our property line ,over 900' from the house...as I was sneaking around,I felt I was being watched...you know that eerie feeling you get??...just as I turned around to see if anything was behind me,this HUGE owl comes out of nowhere,with eyes as big as my own!:yikes: :yikes: ...it had a wingspan of about 5 feet!..and it flew right at me,then veered off at the last minute!--I about s*** my pants,and ran back towards the house!--on my way back,a big doe runs out of the bushes right in front of me!!:eek1: :eek1: ...I nearly S*** myself again,it scared the daylights out of me!(didn't take much after the OWL got my adrenelin flowing!!!:crazy: ...

    about 2 weeks ago, i was riding my mountian bike down this back street by the river where theres like 2 run down houses, and this little psyco dog runs out from one of the houses starts chasing me, and barking and growling like hes going to seriously attack me. just about looks like it's got rabies, so i just kick it up into high gear and start hauling ass thinking i'll just outrun this little dog. i look down at the speedo, im doing 24 mph and this little dog is still just hauling ass right next to my leg and trying to jump and bite me. then, i realize im going down a dead end street with no way out, haha. so i gotta slam the brakes let him pass, then spin around real quick before he catches me. i finally outrun him, guess he got tired or something, it was pretty scary though.

    another time, i was backpacking in the mountians in new mexico, and decided to go for a run after i set up camp. theres some cows grazing in the pasture nearby, and im running by a few cows, then i look over and realize little baby calf on the right and big ol 1200 pound mama cow on the left. she's staring me down, and starts chasing me. i dont think i've ever run that fast, haha.

    i need to quit getting chased by animals. :doah:

    Hunting alone one time about 3 miles into a 5 mile walk in the pitch black with a 2 AA maglight I tripped. After standing up and shining the light down I was standing over a dead doe. Hmmm thats odd, this is where the light bulb pops up over my head. I tripped over somethings breakfast:eek1: I began to scan the area with my tiny light. There about 10 yards away and 15 feet up in a tree was about a 100 lb cougar staring at me wondering WTF:crazy: I backed up a few feet put the light in my left hand, and was just going to back out. I have been tracked by lions before and they scare the hell out of me. I figured as soon as I got out of my maglight range I might be in danger so I found it in my scope aimed center mass and squeezed. I heard it hit the ground and waited and watched for about 5 minutes. I turned around and walked out rather shaken. I called the fish and game to let them know. We had to go back in so they could look at the area. They said everything was ok, and thanked me for reporting it. I was leary about calling, but didn't feel I had really done anything wrong.

    BTW a .300 Win Mag does a number on a cougar:wink1:

    I have been chased by a few moose while fishing, encountered several bears picking berries, and been charged by a obviously very hungry coyote who had the same fate as the cougar.

    Good on ya bro. I went camping with gofergurl and a few others over memorial day weekend. I was planning on getting some spring turkey hunting in, so I had my 12 gauge and .357 in the tent. No one at my campsite seemed to mind. Heck, her brother ventured off and went missing for a couple hours. You're damn sure I went looking for him with the .357 and two speedloaders at my side. Never know what kind of two legged varmints you're gonna run across.
