    Again not sure what to ask this under, but what has been your strangest or weirdest experience while hunting or fishing?

  • #2
    When I was in college, I took a friend and his friend out for a canoe ride on the lake behind my apartment. My fishing license was expired and I told them they needed a license to fish. Alcohol was involved and somehow a couple of fishing rods ended up in the canoe. At some point they started casting. I reminded them that none of us had a valid fishing license and they responded by handing me another beer. The "fishing" was brief and no fish were caught. Minutes after they put the rods down, we were stopped by a wildlife officer. My friends tried to protest but the officer said "you're 'pleatin' the resources"--he was right--my friends hadn't caught anything but they were trying to "pleat" the resources. He wrote both of them tickets for fishing without a license. They bitched, but I told them--pay the ticket--you were wrong--you should have listened to me, AND I'm an idiot for letting you bring a rod in my canoe when you didn't have a license. I refused to help pay their tickets because I warned them, but we managed to repair our friendships anyway. Now here's the wierd part of the story--a few minutes later, when we passed through a culvert to the other side of the lake, a huge bluegill got spooked and jumped right into the boat--just seconds after the wildlife officer disappeared from sight. I may have to rely on the Fifth Amendment regarding the fate of that fish.
