Fish Hook in the Eye- Not for sensitive viewers

Now I'm not suggesting that you start wearing safety glasses when fishing but we should all be aware of what can happen.  If you Google "Fish hook in eye" you will find that this is more common that one might think.  In this particular case a guy managed to hook himself in the lens and a pretty good hook at that. 

What can you take away from this story?  Safety, safety, safety! Be aware of your cast, obstructions to your cast that may deflect your hook, and buddies or nearby fisherman who may not be paying attention to you.  I can't imagine that a fish hook in the eyeball would go down as anything less than one of the worst days of your life....

A Flying Moose? Only in Canada

altOnly in Canada could a moose end up in the power lines. In Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada workers were stringing up power cables which were strung along the ground for miles. it was peak moose rut and one male moose gotten his antlers stuck in some cables when thrashing them around. 

 

When the cable workers (miles away) began pulling the lines up with their power equipment, the moose went up with them. They noticed excess tension in the lines and found the moose.  He was still alive and was lowered to the ground with care to avoid his rutting attitude and 60 inch antlers.

27 point Kansas Antlered Doe!

Check out this antlered doe taken by Kansas hunter, Mike Smith, with a 100 yard shot in a wooded area.  The buck turned out to be a 27 point non-typical with double drops and still in velvet. But it also turned out to be, not a buck at all.   Mike is quoted as saying, “When I rolled it over there was nothing male-looking on the deer. I looked at the back end and it was definitely a doe. That was a real surprise.”

Mike thought the rack and velvet was because a buck had gotten injured while the antlers were growing, which sometimes happens with whitetails. The final doe will be full body mounted with the velvet still on the rack.  This could be the largest antlered doe on record but with out the velvet removed, it won't be officially scored.
