We’ve seen hunters rescue several locked bucks. In the most cases, buck's rival is already dead from exhaustion or coyote predation. This video was shot last month by 29-year-old Kansas hunter Evan McAnally, who came across the bucks while checking his game cameras in Stafford County.
A tangle of antlers on the ground caught his attention and further inspection revealed the remains of a half-eaten buck locked with another deer. He assumed they were both dead. As McAnally approached, the intact buck rose and tried to walk away, reports the Kansas City Star. McAnally set his cell phone in a bush to record the rescue attempt. After trying unsuccessfully to unhook the antlers by hand, he retrieves a saw from his truck.
This is one of those rare instances where a fish is safer on dry land than in water.
The northern pike in this video was just safely released and started swimming away only to return seconds later, hurling itself onto shore in search of safety. The reason for this strange behavior appears seconds later when a bigger pike strikes. If only the people on shore had thrown a bait in the water...
Angler Justin Hanold landed San Diego’s largest bass of the year Monday morning when he snagged a 17-pound largemouth by accident. Hanold was fishing Miramar Reservoir, one of San Diego’s prime bass fisheries, reports sdfish.com. Although Hanold is a successful tournament angler and operates his own guide service, he attributes his latest catch to pure “dumb luck.”
Twelve-year-old angler Lawson Boyte landed a spot in the record books when he pulled a fish from the Mississippi River that was larger than him. The Oak Grove, La., resident admits that catching the 114-pound catfish took more than just skill.
"It was more luck than it was skill to catch that big fish. I think the thing that done it was eating Vienna sausages,” he told KNOE 8 News.
Boyte’s fish was so large that it wouldn’t fit in a regular-sized freezer. Instead, it was held in a freezer at the concession stand at Oak Grove High School.
An unidentified resident of the Boston suburb of Winchester says he saw a mountain lion in the Dunster Lane, Pepper Hill Drive neighborhood on Tuesday. Massachusetts Environmental Police responded to the claim and found paw prints that resemble those of a mountain lion at the scene. While many see this as proof of the sighting, the incident remains open to investigation.
Mountain lions have not been officially documented in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts since 1858. There have been numerous sightings since then but none have been confirmed.
