Camp Joker-practical or not
« on: May 26, 2007, 09:23:00 AM »
There's one in every camp if you are lucky; the Practical Joker. Camp life just isn't what it should be without a few guys practical joking each other. What's the best practical camp joke you've seen? I need some new ones. All mine are already too well known. Here is a recent practical joke that went over well only because Herb was such a great sport. It could have gone south rather quickly had he not been a great sport. CK

Good one CK. As I remember, no animals were harmed during the filming of that event.

When Jeff Massie ran hunts at Cadena there was plenty of that sort of thing. When he and Joe would track a hog they sometimes would find it dead and then turn and scream that it was charging and take a few quick jumps back the trail yelling "RUN!!!" They would be still be standing back at the hog laughing when the greenhorns got enough cactus thorns to stop running.

Putting a Bob-white under hypnosis, then tucking it in the foot end of a neatly made bed works well. Especially after a full day of warning people about the bad South-Texas scorpions.

Another one is, find a little plasic/rubber, kinda real lookin' gator in the toy section of Wall-mart, tie a short piece of fishing line around his neck, then tie the other end to the handle on the BBQ'er. Put the gator on the middle rack of the BBQ'er, then ask your buddy to go light the thing while having the camera running of course. Take bet's on how far he will jump when he opens the lid and the gator jumps out at him.

Practical jokes are a necessity in any hunting camp.  some of my favorites that I have done to people recently have included putting hunting socks into the freezer so that they are froze and sewing the bottom of pants legs together so that you can not put them on.  I have also been on the but end of the joke including having my coffee cup filled with salt and removing all of the screws from my bed so that it would collapse when I got in it.

Heres two. Rubber spider on the bottom of the top bunk. Guy lays down and looks up...Especially effective if the guy is afraid of spiders! Put an item ,of womens lingerie, in a coat sleeve that has been packed to go home from hunting/bowfishing camp. When the lady of the house unpacks for you, look out. Or if you don't know it is there and put the coat on in front of others and it pops out of the sleeve....

One very simple gag is to take a broken tape measure tape and role it up under a coffee mug. It goes every were when the mug is picked up and whoever picks it up usually does to. This is great for snake wary people. Have fun with it . bretto

Take about 1/4 roll of toilet paper.  Unroll about 10".  Saturate roll with super glue in several spots, but not out to the edges.  Roll the 10" of good paper back up.  Most folks like a little more than 10" of paper.

Take a maniken head and tie some twine to the top of the head.    Tie the loose end to the inside of a truck tool box.  When someone asks for something tell them that is is the tool box.   This works very well with the box lids that pop open fast.  Sit back and watch.

This is not a camp joke but its go to do to a jokester.    About 2 weeks before Easter place an add in the local newspaper for FREE baby rabbits and baby ducklings.   Put your buddies phone number with the add.   He will get more calls that you could imagine.    But do not tell him you done this unless he can take a joke!!!!!

I have an uncle that enjoys a beer or two after a long day in the woods. He didn't have enough ambition to get one from the cooler and would always ask one of the young nephews to get it for him. Matter of fact, if it wasn't for gravity, he wouldn't have enough ambition for a bowel movement.

It finally got to the point where it was decided enough was enough. An empty beer bottle was filled with pickle juice, recapped, marked and placed in the cooler to chill for the night. The next evening, after the less-than-ambitious uncle asked for a beer, he was given the marked bottle for his enjoyment. He guzzled half of it before he realized it was pickle juice. He ended up emptying his guts of the pickle juice and everything else that was in there.

He got his own beer from that point on.

Last fall we put about a 4 pound rock in our buddy's hunting pack...he carried it around for two days...'till he found it and threw it away at camp after a lot of threats and stuff. I found the rock again and got a felt pen and wrote on it "MISS U _____" . This rock has followed him around the camp from the kitchen table to being in his bed to beside the woodstove to back in his backpack and it is still sitting on the camp table at camp awaiting his return  :biglaugh:

Good ones!

Reminded me of something I did to one of the hunters at T Sweat. Mark Horne and I were out for a stroll on one of the mesa's when we came upon another hunter. The hunter and I sat down to glass the canyon. I looked over to see some Bobcat scat next to us.  :scared:   I also looked at the zipper on the pocket of the backpack of my unsuspecting friend.  :saywhat:   As he glassed the canyon I eased the zipper open on his pack and slipped in the cat scat.  :bigsmyl:

As a kid I used to go Ice Fishing w/ a favorite Uncle.  He was a cross between John Wayen and Archie Bunker...anyway.  I loved that man dearly.

We're out ice fishing in miserable cold weather one day.  Nothing biting at all.  Uncle Tom rebaits a tip-up of mine and assures me within 5 minutes there will be a 15 Lb lake trout on that line.  Then he walks away.  Sure nuff'  a few minutes later he's yelling at me cause that tip-up sprung it's flag.  Me, as a very excitable 10 year old, goes running for the tip-up.  And when I arrive I can see the spool is running and that line is off to the side, just like it's supposed to be.  Well I rip that tip-up outta the hole, set the hook and start pulling.  The fish seems heavy and swimming in all directions.  I am excited!  Yahoo man, we're gunna be eating fish!  As I pull I get to see a bit of "color" through the inky blackness of deep lakewater iced over.  I pull those last few feet of line in and out pops the lid to the frying pan that we used to grill hot dogs on.  Uncle Tom and my dad are spittin a gut laughin' at me.  

A precious moment in my life, even though I was the butt of the joke.      :biglaugh:

I like to help a buddy out of his truck by putting buck lure in his heating vents(in the truck). I got tired of trying to put deer in front of em, only to find out he was sleeping in his truck....it worked.  :saywhat:

Years ago my huntin bud shot a very nice black bear that tipped the scales at around 400# (honest!)

He sent the hide to the taxidermist to have it rugged. I was able to get to the taxidermist on the day it was ready and brought it to my buddy... except I exchanged it with a very small and very ratty bear hide.

The group I had assembled for the grand opening had a great laugh at my buddie's disbelief when he opened the box... I could run much faster then.

One year hunting in Minnesota for bear, the outfitter had us set up camp in a really bad swampy area.

That fall when he came to hunt antelope with myself and my other buds, we took him to the top of a hill before daylight and left him with the reasurance that the antelope would be all over him come daylight.

As the sun rose it revealed a great veiw of the town dump and little else.

He did get his antelope on that trip.
