Strange noise, what was it???

14 posts in this topic

I was out hunting last night and walking in to my stand I busted up a heard of deer bedded down by it. (not a bedding area, normally, but with the corn in the fields, they were there anyway). Anyhow, I snuck in and could still hear things behind me. Anyhow, about an hour later I could hear something to the west of me. It sounded like a raspberry, you know, when you put your lips together and blow. It was wierd, the sound kept getting closer but eventually disappeard. A little while later some turkeys came through behind me. Any idea what this was, it really sounded like something was passing some juicey gas, but it was quick like a grunt, yet, not a grunt I have ever heard. Wish I could have seen what it was.

Can't imagine turkeys making a noise anything like that. Sound like a horse blow? Any of those critters around?

Could have been big foot I guess...halloween is near.

I don't think it was the turkeys. Wasn't a horse, honestly, I have been the woods for 20 years and never heard it. I am thinking it was a deer making the noise. It made the noise often enough that I got a good listen to it. It sounded like a grunt, but it wasn't a normal grunt. Very weird. It definitely was getting closer to. It went from being a couple of hundred yards away, to I would say as close as 50 yards. I thought for sure that it was a buck checking his scrapes, but alas, never got a look.

Do you ever notice how the strange sounds always come from behind in an area that you have to twist your neck around? I was out last night and kept hearing strange things behind me but could never catch a glimpse.

Bigfoot! Mating season started two days after the third quarter 3/4 moon phase.

I've heard and seen bucks making some awefully odd sounding grunts compared to what you hear them doing on TV as their "typical" grunt.

Does and fawns will also give off very strange "screeches", like in the case if they are split up or frightened. Kind of like a cross between a pelican, cormorant and a heron, and quite loud. It's got an erie pitch to it, almost like they about to be murdered or something.

Sohaad, thats what you get from seperating those deer from thier mother so abruiptly with a pointy stick grin Be fun to take out one of those high intensity microphones and record the sounds to play back. There are some pretty eerie things that sound off every so often. Could be the ghosts just practicing for the big night out too wink

Well, I broke up a small group of bedded down deer when I walked in, maybe it was a fawn that got separated. Or maybe it was a really odd sort of grunt, thats what I was thinking. Heck, it could have been a raccoon. I like to think it was a buck, but I've come to learn that when you hear someting that close, if its a deer, you can usually get some kind of visual on it. I never even came close.

Maybe the noise was a Sasquatch with a hairball?

    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.

    • That the snow's coming. My crab apple, and the ground below it, is literally loaded with Robin's gorging themselves. Started yesterday and hasn't stopped...I counted 15 at once before they flit around and land on another branch.
