This is such a great thread, I have never looked at it before this week and now that I've read everything thanks for sharing all these great stories and pictures!

Here are a couple of "true crime" hunting stories for ya'll:

Hunting aoudad back in 2012 west of Valentine close to Ft Holland mentioned earlier and spotted 5 guys with heavy backpacks escorted by two heavily armed (AR15) muchachos hiking up from the river. Watched through the binos and the rifle scope and realized they were coming right toward my guide and I and between us and our vehicle a mile or so away. They stopped to rest in a little patch of shade and I had a cell signal so I called the personal cell of a DEA guy I knew in Houston, he called their office in El Paso and a helicopter showed up 30 minutes later. The pistoleros gave up without a scrap and they recovered a bunch of weed and a few guns.

After early limits hunting ducks north of Las Vegas at Paranagat NWR my two friends and I drove out in the desert to look around. We were 3-400 yards from a travel trailer hooked to a pickup truck about a mile off highway 93 when it suddenly blew up...BLEW THE F UP! We hauled *** over there and found two injured people, two injured dogs and a dead guy. Apparently grandson and his bud had a meth cook going and blew up the trailer killing his partner and injuring his grandmother who was asleep in the trailer. We did CPR on grandma until an ambulance got there in about 35 minutes but she died on the way to the hospital. Had to shoot one of the dogs which was literally broken in half and suffering terribly. The mastermind of this little operation was unscathed...but I went back to Nye County NV and testified at his double manslaughter trial. Glad he died in prison.

But my best discovery: shortly after moving to Houston I was invited to go duck hunting. We didn't have a bling, just jump shooting over a pond. We got there in the dark, tossed out some decoys and hunkered down in the marshgrass to wait until shooting time. I found a nice hump to sit on so I could see those quackers coming in. Unfortunately no one told me about fire ants or their mounds...they can get in your waders fast! Got bit about 20 times. I'm sure my buddies could post on here "we saw a guy strip completely naked while duck hunting once..."

Thanks for reading!

On my way back from Dove hunting I came across the ugliest puppy in the world abandoned and starving. He devoured three doves and jumped into the back of my car.
That was 13 years ago and he is still with us

My most memorable

I was 10 or 11 yrs old hunting in a large working ranch outside of Mason. I was a city boy from a town of 40k and har not experienced any ranch operations before but this one day the ranch hands had corralled some calves outside the old stone German homestead at the ranch and I was encouraged to observe their activities. I might not be using the correct vernacular in this description but they were separating the boys and the girls. All the boys were getting castrated, then they would get something that looked like lard lather on their exposed remaining reproduction parts and then they were set free to join the other new steers. This was circa 1964 and I thought that this was the best deer hunting trip yet even though I had only been on about 2 up to then. Chalk it up to an educational one too.

The river that ran along the ranch would show dinosaur foot prints on the rocks when the water was low enough too.

Thanksgiving weekend on the ranch, my brother brought his metal detector and decided to go into the brush where an old road bed was. He discovered a pistol round with the bullet about 2 inches away. They were both 2-3 inches in the ground. Neither of us could distinguish the markings on it. Sunday night he posted on some gun/ammo forums and discovered it was a .455 webley cartridge with a C stamped on it apparently Identifies cordite propellant.. 1891-1897.. We know nobody on the ranch , guest or grandfather has ever had that caliber., We have owned since 1932...
