Coyotes Charging Man

You may have seen this photo circulating and as usual a few people call it cool and the rest call it fake.  What to believe... So here's the original story and here is the truth.  The story in the original e-mail went as follows:

The picture is for real and so is the story. Aaron's friends were checking snares around Geraldine and decided to stop and call in a spot. One had a .204 and a .22 pistol. The other had a camera. They called for 15 minutes and brought in the pack of coyotes that they couldn't see until they were 20 yards away. The shooter shot twice with the .204 rifle as the coyotes closed in. The dogs didn't know where to go and were jumping around, barking, etc. By the time he made the second shot they had moved in to 10 yards and he couldn't see anything but hair in his scope, so he put the rifle down and grabbed his sidearm. He stood up and started firing into the pack of jumping dogs. The picture makes them look like they're charging but they were just bouncing around trying to figure out what to do. The shooter emptied his sidearm and managed to get a bullet into each coyote. Pretty wild.

According to Adrew McKean of Outdoor Life, a few buddies set up the scene with several of their frozen snared coyote and meant it as a joke.  This explains the various discrepencies in the snow and the cameraman. Either way, they did a darn good job making it look like an action scene!

The White Deer of Seneca Army Depot!

Have you heard of the white deer of  the Seneca Army depot?  With 20+ square miles of fenced land, the abandoned depot has become home to, not albino and not piebald, but leucistic white deer.  The deer are simply white from a genetic mutation which means they lack all pigmentation in their hair but have the normal brown-colored eyes.

Elk Fishing Anyone?

Apparently some pike fisherman in Ft. Peck, Montana pulled this brute off the bottom of the lake and had to figure out how to get it out of the water.  In all likelihood it was shot by a hunter or chased by wolves and fled to the water.  Unable to make it across, it drownded.  It made for quite an unusual catch for the fisherman though!
