WHAT WAS THAT??

11 posts in this topic

my dogs just lit up outside, to the point where I thought someone was in the driveway.

there was no one out there, so I let them in.

lady was all wound up, with her fur all in a hackle, so I stood outside and listened for a few minutes, then I heard, what ever it was.

a loud, I mean as loud as a deer blowing at twenty yards.

it sounded almost like a bark with a sore throat, but more like a deer blowing...only the sound was a bit shorter and more cut of at the end than a deer blowing.

this went on in series of five to six times at less than two second intervals.

there was about a minute in between bursts.

it was across the road, but seemed to be right behind my mailbox.

after about a dozen rounds, I could tell it was moving off, but then it came back.

I tried to immitate the call back and that threw the thing off a bit, only giving one or two calls per session while I did that, but then it went back to the five or six calls per session.

I think I have ruled out deer. I am leaning to a fox, searching for a seperated pup?

Crazy. Depends on how far it was away, but do you have a powerful spotlight? You got me interested in what it really was.

Sounds like a gray fox to me. They sound like a hoarse bark.

Fox. The red fox warning bark is kind of a coughing bark as well. You can google it and find sound clips. We have a couple that commonly bark in our yard up in Itasca county. Sound kinda creepy.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
