Elk + a little surprise



This was sent to me by one of my face book friends.
Guy shot a nice elk in N. Dakota, took his picture on a timer,
and about had a heart attack when he downloaded it the next morning.

Whoo hoo hooey!! That would get my attention!!! We had a cougar on our leased land (central Wisconsin) all week of rifle deer hunting. One of the guys that walked in at 4:00 am in the morning had a "confrontation" with it. It was snarling and growling and he couldn't get into his blind quick enough. He was scared to death.

Guess they should have inserted a Sasquatch. At least that way people would know it was a fake... OR is it?

That pic has been floatin' around on hunting forums for years. Not to say it couldn't happen.

Even though the photo is faked, I was entertained by it.
