    HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE TWO DUCK HUNTERS FROM WISCONSIN? ABSOLUTELY 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, but probably is looking for a new home.

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

    The Hunters Who End up Dynamiting A Brand New SUV and Their Dog on a Frozen Lake-Fiction!






    Summary of eRumor:
    It's a tragic tale with a twist. Two hunters use a stick of dynamite to make a hole big enough in a frozen lake to set themselves up for duck hunting. When they light the stick of dynamite, their faithful retriever fetches it. They try to shoot the dog, but he runs for cover...which turns out to be underneath one of the hunters' shiny new Lincoln Navigator (there are versions saying it was a different SUV such as a Jeep Cherokee). The dynamite blows, the dog goes, the ice opens, and the SUV drops to the bottom of the lake. The insurance doesn't cover it, so the hunter is left with his payments and no SUV.


    The Truth:
    It's an entertaining story, but it is an urban legend. There are several versions of it that change the make and model of the SUV from version to version.

    This is a common scenario for some urban legends. There is a similar story about a fisherman who decided to use a stick of dynamite to stun a pool of fish and his dog jumps in grabs the dynamite and returns to his master's side. There are also stories of hunted animals turning the tables on the hunters when they tried to use dynamite on their prey.

    I heard it was a crow with a half stick of TNT tied to his foot. When a flock of crows went by they lit it and released the crow. Too heavy, so it landed on the barn roof.
