    Practical jokes on new hunters

    I wonder if you have any practical jokes you have played on new hunters?

    I have one I have wanted to try for years. Buy some Tootsie Rolls, break it into pieces and shape it into elk dropping shapes. When out hiking, pour a few in a small pile the ground. Get the attention of the new guy and say "Here's some fresh elk sign" pick up a couple pieces, and chew them up "They were here about 2 hours ago".

    My grandpa did that to my brother when we were elk hunting in 2007. He poured whoppers on the ground, told my bro to taste them and see how fresh. When my bro wouldn't, he did and you should have seen the eyes of the 7 (almost 8) year old grow. Lol

    Bite the heart on the first kill. We've talked a few guys into it.

    My uncles and dad talked my older brother and cousin into catching snipes over the creek just after dark. They were told the snipes fly really fast right over the stream after dark eating bugs. If they could stretch out a sheet or tarp across the stream, a snipe might fly into the sheet. The catch was that they would have to collapse the sheet before the snipe got out which meant getting wet. Both my cousin and brother thought that was worth it being that no one in our family had been able to catch a snipe yet. I'm not sure which one donated their unzipped sleeping bag to the cause, but away they went.

    My dad quietly made his way upstream and started throwing pieces of horse poop down the river. It wasn't long before we all heard screaming and splashing. (Thank God I was too young to be included in this!) My uncles start screaming to be sure they didn't let the snipe escape because they've never seen one. Back to the campfire came the two drenched heroes. They carefully unfolded the wet sleeping bag in the flicker of the fire.

    I just remember my cousin carefully grabbing the little dark mystery and quietly saying, "Is that horse...shit?"

    And my uncle screams, everyone knows that catching snipes is horse shit.

    You can imagine how the rest of the night went. It was hilarious and not very many reunions go by without that getting mentioned.

    I've used milk duds for the elk poop trick. A rubber snake in the bottom of a sleeping bag is a good oldy. Putting rocks in your buddies back pack is another good old joke. Using a coyote howler call on the edge of camp in the middle of the night is fun.(make sure your hunting partners don't have a gun handy and they are not the type to shoot blindly in the dark) Everybody in your hunt group glassing in the same direction talking excitedly about the big buck up on the mountain but the guy you left out of the joke can't seem to find the buck that does not exist. The list goes on and on. fatrascal.
