The rabbit was screaming, the hawk was trying to finish it off on the ground, and then a murder of crows showed up and added to the ruckus. The hawk wasn't strong enough to fly off with the rabbit, which was still alive and screaming, and the crows kept trying to surround the hawk. After 5 minutes or so, the rabbit died and the hawk flew away without his lunch.

It was an unpleasant experience.

Screech owls are also startling.

As a young lad I kept ferrets and their only purpose was for rabbiting. And yes the noise a rabbit can make when stopped up down a hole by a ferret is loud,

The other day after work I took a ride up to a camp I hunt out of in northern Warren County to mow the grass and do some weed trimming. Itís about two miles in on a dirt road and less then a half mile in I came upon a big beach tree laying across the road. Sometimes I bring a chainsaw and log chain with me, but I didnít have them on this trip, as it was a spur of the moment decision to go that morning before leaving for work.

So, I unhooked the trailer with the mower from my Jeep, backed up, turned around, and backed back up to the trailer. As I was hooking the trailer back up I heard this weird animal sound in the woods close by. Although Iím pretty sure it was a coyote, it did sound a little more guttural than what Iím used to hearing from coyotes. Perhaps because it was so close? Still, weíve got a good bear population around there so I had to wonder. I sat there for a few minutes with the Jeep off, and my pistol close, but didnít hear or see anything else. I looped around and got to the camp from another direction and kept my pistol on my hip during my chores.

Sorry, I didnít see any bigfeet, but I was listening to some Little Feat while driving around!

According to a Dr. Matthew Johnson from Utube they not only exist but have the ability to cloak themselves. He says there are two varieties. The Xanue who hail from another planet and relocated here because their sun was dying, and the Treykon who are a malevolent species who will attack and eat you if you stumble into their area. The Treykon were brought here millions of years ago to mine precious metals. The aliens who brought them abandoned them when the mining was completed and they have been here ever since. They have no supernatural cloaking abilities as the Xanue do. The Xanue are supposed to be benevolent creatures who seek to help mankind through physical healings. If you think this is far fetched you are correct, it is. But there are many people who believe it and claim to have been healed. Please don't take my word for it as these are not my ideas but can so many people be crazy? Check it out and decide for yourselves. "Team Squatchin USA" is his website. There are lots of websites claiming to have had experiences with this phenomenon. I am not going to even try to relate what these people claim because it is so far out there, it would make a great sci-fi movie, but could it be true? You decide.

Good decision Lucky 13. Bigfoot and Unicorn Conventions are the only two places a banjo will actually be in tune.

I have been obsessed with Bigfoot my entire adult life and my hiking nickname is Bigfoot. Nonetheless, I do not believe it exists.
It would be cool as hell though if it did, I want it to exist, but I'm afraid it just doesn't.
I would have seen it by now all the remote whacks I've done, haha!

According to the latest "research" Bigfoot does exist. It's existence "vibrates" at a higher level than humans, and that's why it is blurry on the camera. Also it has the ability to cloak itself. You're not seeking the right "expert" info. CHeck out "Team Squatchin USA.com . Well, YOU said you wanted it to exist, right? Go check it out.

Many men have become upset upon hearing that the "rabbit died".

It's possible to get a banjo in tune?

I love the banjo, and Bluegrass! And, the video of Steve Martin and Kermit doing Dueling Banjos!

Bigfoot captured LIVE in Adirondacks w/Banjo!

and Kazoo!
The most pathetic and lamented instrument on our planet.

*
After further research, and a lucky bit of synchronicity, our experts have discovered and proven the truth.

Big foot has Big Ears, but tiny stripe-d socks.
All the better to hear you with, my dear.

Believers and non-believers alike, were left disappointed and shaken.
Even disturbed.

It's True; that was a mandolin.
