You can never predict what will show up in front of your ground blind or treestand. In my own experience, I’ve cursed at trespassing hunters, dog walkers, motorcross riders, snowmobilers, stray dogs and cats, and escaped cows and horses. And one time I found a basketball in a cattail swamp 1.5 miles deep in a public walk-in-only hunting area in Wisconsin. How the heck did that get there?
But I’ve never had a fly-by like the deer hunter in today's "Killing Time" video. (Spoiler alert: The intruder arrives at the 33-second mark.)
Until next time ...
Note: I’ve been in a hot-air balloon only once in my life, but I can tell you from experience that the sound of the burner sends South Dakota whitetails, fox and coyotes running for their lives.
