What was that sound?

28 posts in this topic

Maybe we should start a new forum for UFO sightings and cougars in downtown minneapolis...

I was out fishing this evening when I heard a terrible high pitched screaming sound. Like I was sitting right next to a tornado siren or by the brakes on a train. I thought it sounded like it was coming from the lantern and the other guy in my house sweared it came from outside. It was weird that it happened a couple minutes after lighting the lantern and the lantern went out a minute after this sound. It was was soooo loud it was difficult to pinpoint the direction or distance of the sound.

Any ideas?

BTW this happened on Bald Eagle at about 5:20 pm today.

I've been out alone on a lake when some coyotes got ahold of a rabbit. That sound will make your blood curdle. Rabbits sound a lot like a womens scream when they're in deep trouble

I'd put my money on the lantern as well, if it's propane powered.

I presume this is well known phenomena, but 2-3 minutes before my Buddy heater runs out of LP on the pound sized tank, the heater (or the near empty tank?) begins to squeal and gets louder as it nears complete empty. First time I heard it do this it freaked me out. I condsider it a warning to start looking for the backup tank soon if I want to maintain heat.

Now, if it's not that, then it's probably the ghosts from some long-ago ship wreck directly beneath your shack. I've heard that the pirates were quite active on Bald Eagle in the early 1600's. I'd find a new spot to fish.

Jolly Ho!

It definately wasn't a rabbit, I have heard that terrible sound before.

This was a long - maybe 45 seconds or so - constant high pitched screech.

I have been through a lot of tanks on that lantern and never had that happen before. WEIRD!

Are you sure it wasn't "ducks"... You know the kind that fly real low near the wallet region of your pants.

It could have been a meander. They will often scream and then attack anyone trying to run to get away from the sound. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Heard the same thing once, turned out to be just one of those bigfoot creatures. Shined a flashlight on him and he took off. I suppose he was imbarassed because the cold weather had made is malehood shrink up to look more like one of those fake noses you can buy.

It was a Hodag... This is from the Paul Bunyan book by Esther Shephard.

Hodag

The Hodag wasn't so bad, but he could make the most awful noise- the worst you ever heard. Something between a screech and a growl, that wasn't neither, but both of 'em together at the same time, and a whole lot of other things throwed in besides. You'd think a whole woodsfull of wildcats and hyenas was after you when you hear one of 'em.

Yup you heard a Hodag!

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...    
    • Del drops the mic.   Nice dodge.   How would Del know what Trump and Clinton are thinking or are afraid of (if they are afraid of anything)?
