"This reminds me of an ex-brother-in-law. He bought a new style squirrel call you kept in your mouth and while you blew through it you could shake a bush to imitate a young squirrel being attacked and the other squirrels would inevitably come out on the limbs and start barking. We were making our way back to camp and he was blowing thru it while tromping thru the brush when he started to run backwards and hollering with the call still in his mouth. I thought he called up a hog or bobcat and he was trying to get away from it. I was about 15yds. behind him so I stepped to the side and leveled off on the path in front of him, then I fell out laughing so hard I couldn't shoot straight. He was screaming "Shoot!" thru this call and thrashing around and the whole time this mother squirrel was barking and lunging at him trying to get him to drop the "young squirrel" before he ate it! I shot the ground beside it and it finally ran up a tree but still kept barking until we left the area.
He asked me how I missed it at 30 feet away and I told him that" Ol momma earned her life for the day for defending her young and making me laugh so hard!"."
this is so funny! i've been laughing on and off for a couple of days now thinking about it. it reminds me of Monty Python's 'search for the holy grail' and the man eating rabbit!
"that rabbit's dynamite!" lol
