Dudley, that joke was plain WRONG!!!!!

One time I got my Dad looking at a nearby live hornet's nest through some binoculars.  Tickled the back of his neck with a piece of grass, he came totally unglued!

Good thing Herb has a since of humor! That boy is big enough to make things uncomfortable!

This past weekend we had a father and son campout in the Adirondacks and all during the day we kept the kids thinking about all the black bears in the area. Set the boys (aged 13 and older) up all day for a restless night thinking about bears!  I even took a handful of corn chips and threw it into the boys open fronted lean-to. Told them it would keep the bears out of my lean-to.  Well a little after 1 AM I pulled out my tanned 7' black bear hide and made a little visit to their lean to! Well, you can imagine the results!  I had two of the boys admit that they were huddled in a ball on their cot praying! One said he was too scared to even look. One saw me scratch the corner of one of the lower cots and he was thinking "oh no, Jeff is going to die". After revealing myself to the boys they were very relieved. One of the older boys (17) said, "you are just mean"!  We had a great time with it and they all admitted that it was one of the funnest and most exciting (scary) campouts they've ever been on!

While heading in to our treestands with and old friend who was new to deer hunting, we stopped to chat and while he was looking away, I placed a hand full of chocolate coated raisins behind him.  I cautioned him not to step in the deer dropings behind him and commented on how fresh the sign was. "Ya think so?"he said excitedly.
I reached down and picked some up and said it looks real fresh and handed him some.  Smells fresh to, don't you think, I said.  When I poped some in my mouth and said yup it sure tastes fresh, he came unglued and I had all I could do to keep a straight face.

We took a fella on his first bearhunt in Maine last year. We filled his head with bear tales all week, especially the scary ones.His tracks to the bait showed that when he walked in, the strides were short and deliberate, and when he ran out at dark, they were long and far apart!The guide played a major part of the story telling,adding that a week before ours, a camper was torn from his trailer and found without his arms.

Our friend shot a bear the last nite and we trailed it the next morning. As the guide was cleaning his bear, we distracted him and planted a very realistic rubber hand in the guts of the bear.
When it popped out of the belly our young friend looked like he saw a ghost!He just about lost his breakfast, but soon our laughter changed his mood.

Best part was, we recorded it on his own camcorder! Great moment, caught forever!

We were rabbit hunting one day and I rolled a nice size stone down through the weeds behind my buddy. He missed it twice and swore it was a rabbit.. Did the same thing to my Dad a few times, damn that man sure could shoulder a shotgun fast:)  

I like the ole fart a-matic trick. Take a coat hanger and cut off about a 8 inch piece. Bend it into a square U shape, bend little loops on the two ends. Tie two rubber bands to a nickle size washer then connect the loose ends of the rubber bands to the loops on the coat hanger. Twist the washer several times to tighten up the rubber bands then slip the thing under yer butt when yer sitten on a chair, a vinyl chair works best. When ya lean over real slow the washer starts spinning and sounds like a fart. You would be surprized how many guys actualy can smell it:) Pulled that on a waitress in a resturant once, that whizzed her off:)

There's always the  black snake in the sleeping bag trick just to liven things up.  

Then there's the steel plate over the scoring area of a target but you have to have a friend that can hit the target for this to work.  Works best if you shoot first and hit too far back, then make a wager "$20 says you can't stick an arrow in any scoring ring". Notice the word "stick".

When I was a Platoon Sergeant we played a trick on my Platoon Leader just before a briefing with the CO, we took a pair of binos and coated the rubber cups with black kiwi (shoe polish) then folded them down narrow. When the LT walked up we handed him the binos and told him to check out the womens shower tent which he did immediately and had to widen the glasses while looking through them to see anything leaving him looking like rocky raccoon, upon seeing nothing he handed them back and ran off to his briefing...I sure do miss messing with young LT's.

I almost got thrown out of a hunting camp once for this one.  I went to the outhouse and saw a little possum, so I caught him and took him inside and hid him in the first pair of boots by the door.  I waited for a while for the owner of those boots to visit the outhouse, then fell asleep.  Woke up in the middle of the night to the worse yelling and screaming you ever heard, when the camp owner decided to slip on his boots and visit the outhouse.  I guess my laughter gave me away, and I had to do some 'splaining and fast talking in order to avoid walking home that night........

I was on that trip with Marty and a few other nice fellas...and let me tell you, it was a laugh riot the whole time..really had a blast. Was going to go to Africa in July with him and was really looking forward to the time we would have spent....he's a jokester for sure!

As to the idea of putting women's lingerie inside the luggage of a campmate just before he goes home........

that seems a little over the edge to me...remind me NOT to go on a trip with you, OK? Snakes in my sleeping bag (as long as its not a black mamba or a coral snake ok) but no women's dainties in my luggage, please. Been married a long time and want to stay that way.

Got an old wig or hairpiece laying around???  Stuff it down at the bottom of someone's sleeping bag.  Seen some people move real fast coming out of a sleeping bag after sticking their little bare tootsies down against that furry critter.   :rolleyes:

Well, we got a few Trad Gangers just the other day....seems there was a big Brew Ha Ha boiling over Miss Kim's Cookies on The "ITS UP....ST JUDES....ITS UP" thread.

Guys were paring up, then teams and aliances were formed to take the finall bid of Miss Kim's treats.....

Dick 'rabbitman' Easter kept telling them boys on the other team that he had a secret weapon...and they just kept on hammering him and team mate Border Bob Walker....

I came up with this as a little joke....I posted that Bob Walker had unleashed the secret weapon!!!!!.....and this was ALL the other team could see when they tried and tried to log back into Trad Gang the 1st day of the Auction.....
