HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE TWO DUCK HUNTERS FROM

    HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE TWO DUCK HUNTERS FROM
    WISCONSIN?

    A TRUE STORY HEARD ON A WISCONSIN RADIO
    STATION REPORTING ON THE INCIDENT .


    A guy buys a new Lincoln
    Navigator for $42,500.00 (with monthly payments of
    $560.00).


    He and a friend go duck hunting in upper
    Wisconsin.
    It's mid-winter;
    and of course all of the lakes are
    frozen. These two guys go out on the ice with their GUNS,
    a DOG, and of course the new NAVIGATOR.


    They decide they want to make a natural
    looking open water area for the ducks to focus on,
    something for the decoys to float on.


    Now making a hole in the ice large enough
    to invite a passing duck, is going to take a little more
    power than the average drill auger can produce.


    So, out of the back of the new Navigator
    comes a stick of dynamite with a short 40 second-fuse. Now
    our two Rocket Scientists, afraid they might slip on the
    ice while trying to run away after lighting the fuse (and
    becoming toast, along with the Navigator), decide on the
    following course of action: they light the 40 second fuse;
    then, with a mighty thrust, they throw the stick of
    dynamite as far away as possible.


    Remember a couple of
    paragraphs back when I mentioned the NAVIGATOR,
    the GUNS, and the DOG..???


    Let's talk about the dog: A highly trained
    Black Lab used for RETRIEVING; especially things thrown by
    the owner. You guessed it: the dog takes off across the
    ice at a high rate of speed and grabs the stick of
    dynamite, with the burning 40-second fuse, just as it hits
    the ice.


    The two men swallow, blink, start waving
    their arms and, with veins in their necks
    swelling to resemble stalks of rhubarb, scream and holler
    at the dog to stop. The dog, now apparently cheered on by
    his master, keeps coming.


    One hunter panics, grabs the shotgun and
    shoots the dog. The shotgun is loaded
    with #8 bird shot, hardly big enough to stop a Black Lab.
    The dog stops for a moment, slightly confused, then
    continues on. Another shot, and this time the dog, still
    standing, becomes really confused and of course terrified,
    thinks these two geniuses have gone insane. The dog takes
    off to find cover, UNDER the brand new Navigator.


    The men continue to scream as they run. The
    red hot exhaust pipe on the truck touches the dog's rear
    end, he yelps, drops the
    dynamite under the truck and
    takes off after his master.


    Then " "" "" "" "" " BOOOOOOOOOOOOM "" ""
    "" "" "" ! ! ! !


    The truck is blown to bits and sinks to the
    bottom of the lake, leaving the two idiots standing there
    with "I can't believe this just happened" looks on their
    faces.


    The insurance company says that sinking a
    vehicle in a lake by illegal use of explosives is NOT
    COVERED by the policy. And he still had
    yet to make the first of those $560.00 a month payments.


    The
    dog is okay. . doing fine.



    And you thought Rednecks only
    lived in the
    South........

    I've heard this one for years.

    Makes a good yarn.... and the truck continues to get more expensive as the years go by.

    Being a lab person, I can fully imagine this to be a true story, at least having the basic parts true, never mind if the truck model changes- labs never do, lol! Those labs!
