EMBARRASSED MYSELF THE OTHER DAY
The other day, I was headed out hunting for the evening. I passed a big diesel truck headed up the hill as he was taking his time on the washouts and my Subaru outback was navigating them quite well. I made it to where I was headed into the bush and threw on my backpack got all my gear on just as I heard the diesel headed up the road. I didn't really want too many people knowing just where I go into the woods because I have a pretty good trail cut just out of sight of the road and don't want to invite anybody not already going there so I thought I had just enough time to get far enough away from the car and behind a tree to hid before the truck got within sight. I made it and looked back to see the truck stop right beside my car. What the ......, In the haste of getting out getting out of sight as fast as I could, I had left my bow sitting right on the top of the car. I stepped out from behind the tree, waved and headed back down to the car to retrieve my bow. No telling how far I would have made it into the woods before I realized I had left my bow if he had not have stopped. Thank you MR. Diesel if you are out there.
Haha. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who hides from passing vehicles to prevent them from seeing where I enter and exit certain hunting spots.
One time in my haste to load up and leave after a hunt, I left my Swarovski binos on top of my truck. I'll never forget the sick feeling I got when I heard them sliding off the truck and watched them bouncing along the dirt road in my rear view mirror at about 50 mph.
Lol. You would have figured it out eventually.
I’d have been more embarrassed by the Subaru than leaving my bow on the hood. ;-)
Ahh the subi is a solid hunting rig LUNGSHOT. It has been sitting at the end of the road by its lonesome after passing by parked pickup trucks in the early spring horn hunting season. Studs and chains all the way around.
A Subaru is a good cover vehicle if you are hunting in an area where the tree huggers and animal rights people hang out. In Albuquerque, there would be trucks that obviously belonged to hunters, that would get vandalized while parked before sunrise, by the antis. As long as they don’t see you getting out of the car with your bow and equipment, they’ll never suspect you’re a hunter.
Reminds me of the time my brother shot a 7X in Kaibab. We use those game carts from Cabelas for retrieval on deer. Anywhoo, we loaded him whole and were about 125 yards away from popping out on the road when we hear a vehicle coming. We didn't want anyone to see us walking out to the road with a big mulie so we stuck the cart behind a clump of trees and the three of us layed down on the ground, watching the truck pass by.
^^^ True. Just slap a “VEGAN” and a “COEXIST” sticker on that sucker and your all set.
Probably just figured you "duck walked" into the woods.
Old buddy got back to his truck on his Honda Big Red. Latex his Remington Rattlemaster on the hood while he loaded the bike. Took off down the road afterwards. The rifle didn’t last very long on the hood. Lol
Father I have sinned.... Ran over my bow once....
This is my buddy’s urban hunting vehicle...............he has killed more deer than probably anyone I know! He averages 8-10/ yr...................you’d never know it when he’s driving the Subie! ;-)
Calling it a Subi is about the dumbest thing i hear on a regular basis. But, whatever works. My favorite thing lately is parking my diesel in the Grocery parking lot right on top of the line for the electric vehicle charging station. They really have to work to get in there.
How ‘bout Lezbaru.........,.,...,..is that better?! ;-)
Rut Nut beat me to it!
And if I saw your truck parked like that, I would just think you had trouble driving it! : )
I would have bet my house that this was going to be a "jordanathome" thread...
LOL I did the samething but it wasnt a bow it was a flyrod after hiking 4 miles i reliazed i didnt have my rod. Came back and someone had put it under my car. Left a folded note on my window.
Damn....... Hey, Otcwill rocked a subaru for many a successful year......
