    This stuff only happens to me :confused: I was setting along the scioto tonight and just as it was getting to dark to see anything I make out a very wide shape coming at me from across the water..Before I had time to react this huge crane bird flies into me : :eek: ..Scared the crap out of me :eek: The bird was freaking squaking and hissing at me as I am trying to get out of my chair with this thing draped all over me!..And to top it all of the freaking thing crapped all over me, must have pooped a gallon :mad: So I manage to stand up, and the bird gets to it's feet and takes off...So there I stand with Crane crap all over my shirt and pants! :mad: I went home!
  2. Like a Great Blue Heron. Those suckers are huge!!! Caught one in a muskrat trap once. That was fun. :D

    bill_gfish Well, Gee Whiz!

    HA HA HA HA HA, That is funny as H. Jack. Had to clean the inside and outside of your pants!! Did ya catch any fish? Man, I've seen the mess them things can leave on the docks and rocks. I would have crapped myself too. I hate them things, they are every hundred feet or more on this lake, eatin up all the fish they see. Before too long they will be concidered a pest and have to be delt with. I know the sound they make too, was quietly sitting in the boat one night and had one sneak over and let out that death squall. Can imagine what it sounds like all up in your face. All I can say is bigfoot sent a bird to do it's lightwork. Sweet justice would have been wringing the life out of that bird. Only you Jack, only you.

  9. :D :D Laughing My Rear End Off :D :D Best one in a while Flattie, Thanks for the story

    It's crane mating season. I guess that since you've lost so much weight, that to a near sighted excited crane you looked pretty.

    Are you sure that gallon of stuff was dodo?

    I feel your pain FH, just not the smell...I had a heron fly at me last year on O'Shaugnessy and swipe my hat off my head. Almost knocked me out of the boat.
  15. Of course we are all laughing with you FH not at you. Man that is funny. I can hear it now- "Yeah but you should see the other guy! I beat the crap out of him!" :D

    Fishman, I dont think the bird saw me untill it hit me, I was setting along the river bank with high weeds all around me, and I thnk it just thought I was a tree or something :D
