Story borrowed from our friend John King

Hiking story time! Love this story I got to share, I would never have made it home

So there I was on a trail and noticed I needed to tie up a boot... I sat on this dead log, bent over to lace it up aannddd seen this right underneath me.
Pretty sure I let out a fear fart as I screamed and jumped off in 2.5 seconds flat... seriously thought I was now a person who discovered a dead body/ body part... so then my toddler side in me got curious and poked it... then saw that its hooked onto a stem that goes into the ground.
So I whipped out my handy dandy Google friend and typed in "foot plant mushroom" and there it was... "dead man's finger/toes fungi". The end.

Edit: those who are asking, yes you can share.
Share the awareness.
Could possibly save the underwear of a hiker who didn't think to bring a spare pair or toilet paper. Lol

MISTY SUNRISE AT LAKE PANIC.
Adult hippos can hold their breath underwater for up to six minutes and typically walk along the bottom of a river or lake rather than swim.
Babies, meanwhile can only last about 30 seconds – but they do have an incredible ability to suckle underwater by closing their ears and nostrils.
Hippo milk is pink. Yes, pink!
And a single cup contains more than 2,000 kiloJoules.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
