What was that sound?

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
