What was he thinking?

Recommended Posts

A guy I work with was out pheasant hunting this past weekend. A buddy of his takes a tumble, and the end of his gun gets packed with dirt. So what is the first thing you would do? Well 99.9% of us who have a brain in our heads, would unload our guns, clean out the barrel, and make sure the gun was safe to use. Well not this guy, the first thing he did point the gun out in front of him and pull the trigger. Before I say anymore I will tell you that he is just fine and is VERY LUCKY not to have gotten himself or anyone else hurt of killed. So this idiot fills his barrel full of dirt and pulls the trigger. So what happens next? Now I am sure that all of you have seen one of the many Looney Tunes, where Bugs Bunny sticks a carrot in the end of Elmer Fudd's gun. As you can imagine the dirt acts very much like the carrot. The end of his barrel is peeled open just like in the cartoons. This is one guy that is on my list of people never hunt with. I beleive that his buddies have also given him a new nickname "Dumb***", and that is exactly what he is. Happy hunting eveyone and watch out for people like this.

I do have a picture of the guy holding his blown up gun if anyone could help me post it, or would like to see it via email.


Good luck and be safe

Wow, that could have been much worse. What was the load he had in that gun?

Here is more information. The gun is a Rem 1100, the guy I got the photo from did not know the load he was using. He did say that he was about 30 ft away, and the gun made kind of dull pop bang sound. Then a hunk of grass, dirt and shot went flying out. I still can't beleive no one got hurt.

Some people should not be allowed to reproduce. We just saw an example. A few years ago, I saw a shotgun barrel that some guy shot a home-made buckshot load. Instead of lead shot, he used steel ball bearings. He only did it once.

      You could do Isanti to St. Francis also.  About mid way is Anderson Park that has a small sandy access.  Anderson Park to St. Francis had fewer but some bigger fish while Isanti to Anderson Park had better numbers and not as many big fish.   All upstream from Isanti to the access on Hwy 95 can be hit or miss but if you hit it, it can be good.   Up to 16’s is fairly common bit there are enough 16-20’s to not be shocked if you get one or more.   I’d never admit to this while I lived there. 😉

      Some pressure but nothing like lake fishing

      Hey thanks guys, I appreciate your input. It sounds like this float might be best to put off a year when the water is up a little higher. I'll check the gage next summer and see how it looks. I was hoping to get into some 18 to 20" fish (aren't we all), so maybe they will have moved back in there by then.   Does the stretch south of St. Francis get very much pressure on it? I'll have to give it a look.

      Little more narrow up there, if I were to do it, I'd float St Francis to Andover. Shallow yes but it's a good stretch to fish

      I fished it further south near Milaca/Princeton a couple times in late July.  It was OK then but dropping.  The second time we definitely bumped more rocks and grounded out in a couple riffles.  I use a 10 foot jon boat that can float through a couple inches of water.  We caught 15-20 smallmouth both times, but nothing over 16 inches.  I think the drought last year sent the bigger fish out of there.  It may take a few years to recover.   You can check the flow on the DNR website.  There is a live gauge right in Onamia.  Anything below 11 feet is too low for me.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/waters/csg/site.html?id=21018002

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.

      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.

      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay
