Wisconsin Duck Hunters            Back to Redneck  /  Back Home

Thanks to Dave for sending this one!

ABSOLUTELY A TRUE STORY HEARD ON A WISCONSIN RADIO STATION REPORTING ON
 THE INCIDENT.

 A guy buys a new Lincoln Navigator for $42,500.00 with monthly payments of
 $560.00. He and a friend go duck hunting in upper Wisconsin. It's
 mid-winter; and of course all of the lakes are frozen. These two guys go
 out on the ice with their GUNS, a DOG, and of course the new NAVIGATOR
 They decide they want to make a natural looking open water area for the
 ducks to focus on, something for the decoys to float on.
 
Now making a hole in the ice large enough to invite a passing duck, is
 going to take a little more power than the average drill auger can
 produce. So, out of the back of the new Navigator comes a stick of
 dynamite with a short 40 second-fuse.
 
Our two Rocket Scientists, afraid they might slip on the ice while trying
 to run away after lighting the fuse (and becoming toast, along with the
 Navigator), decide on the following course of action: they light the 40
 second fuse; then, with a mighty thrust, they throw the stick of dynamite
 as far away as possible.
 
Remember a couple of paragraphs back when I mentioned the NAVIGATOR, the
 GUNS, and the DOG...? Let's talk about the dog: A highly trained Black
 Lab used for RETRIEVING; especially things thrown by the owner. You
 guessed it, The dog takes off across the ice at a high rate of speed and
 grabs the stick of dynamite, with the burning 40-second fuse, just as it
 hits the ice.
 
The two men swallow, blink, start waving their arms and, with veins in
 their necks swelling to resemble stalks of rhubarb, scream and holler at
 the dog to stop. The dog, now apparently cheered on by his master, keeps
 coming. One hunter panics, grabs the shotgun and shoots the dog. The
 shotgun is loaded with #8 bird shot, hardly big enough to stop a Black Lab.
 
The dog stops for a moment, slightly confused, then continues on. Another
 shot, and this time the dog, still standing, becomes really confused and
 of course terrified, thinks these two geniuses have gone insane.
 
The dog takes off to find cover, UNDER the brand new Navigator.
 
The men continue to scream as they run. The red hot exhaust pipe on the
 truck touches the dog's rear end; he yelps, drops the dynamite under the
 truck and takes off after his master.
 
Then KA BOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
 
The truck is blown to bits and sinks to the bottom of the lake, leaving
 the two idiots standing there with 'I can't believe this just happened'
 looks on their faces.
 
The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal use
 of explosives is NOT COVERED by the policy. And he still had yet to make
 the first of those $560.00 a month payments.
 
The dog is okay....doing fine.
 
And you thought all Rednecks lived in the South.......
