so it has been a while since folks have shared some of their stories. My daughter burned her new jacket getting to close to the heater in the pit last week. Last week I was hunting the water for divers with a couple friends. one has several custom PVC floats with various spinners on them some wind operated and some battery operated. mid way through the hunt it appeared that one of his PVC floats was listing with two of the batter operated spinners. we all looked at it and all seemed to think it was starting to list but he said it would be okay and should hold up until we had our limit. Well it wasn't long afterwards the float went from listing to a complete flip over. he then decided it was time go out and see if we could rescue the spinners so out the blind we go scurring. and yes while we are out their fumbling around we have a giant flock of divers decoy in belly up and laugh at us as the buzz out. I had a neoprene surf jacket on and said I would reach down but he said he had it and took off his jacket and a couple of layers to his bottom sweat shirt and pulled up his sleeve as far as he could up to his armpit.. he was worried that he would lose the magnetic wings as he had a sinker before and when trying to retrieve it lost a wing I went out with him and again asked it he wanted me to reach down and he said nope. so he begins the long reach down and something happened (he said he got hypothermia) and he lost his balance and completely fell over. well you could imagine how funny this was to myself and his nephew. he didn't think it was all that funny though. we eventually scooted the spinners with our feet to shallow water and then he had to trek back to the truck to get change into some warm clothes. A week prior a die hard 870 shooter had recently got a new semi auto 1187 and it was jamming. Well I think we got real close to seeing a gun thrown out in the river. he said it will be last time we ever see him with an autoloader again. I always tell everyone each time we take the boat out and it starts, floats and gets us back to ramp safely it was a good trip whether we get any fish, crabs, ducks or geese. Lets hear some of the bloopers you all have had or been around this year.
