Extreme Asian Carp Hunting

These wacky crusaders take on the plague of the waterways of North America - the invasive Asian Carp in one of the most unorthodox (but hilarious) methods:

Skiing + Carp Hunting = "Skarping"??  

I don't know about you, but I would try this in a heartbeat. Dressed for the challenge, these fisherman have created a new way to combat these Asian carp while giving us something hilarious to watch.

Conservation at its finest, while still have a great time!

Wrong place at the wrong time.  Talk about bad luck..  It's not every day you get the opportunity to shoot at a nice trophy buck, so you want to make sure are ready when the opportunity presents itself.  However, this guy's rifle is clearly not sited in and the poor rabbit is sent flying:

To be fair, the hunter deserves some credit as he explains what went wrong.

To make a long story short, my son dropped my rifle one week before this hunt and did not tell me it was dropped, after making two repetitive shots with custom loads, I knew it was not me. 15 minutes later, buck came back out and I had a chance to get my other gun from my truck and harvest him, however I did not film the fatal shot, but I have pictures. Please notice innocent bystander (rabbit) on the first shot. I was shooting a 7mm Magnum.

Moral of the story is to always check your firearm after letting anyone borrow it.

Hard to believe this two year old girl is catching her first fish, and her reaction is priceless.  She is definitely being raised right!

[VIDEO] Eagle Takes Down Deer

Talk about fast food!  Watch as this golden eagle takes down a fully grown deer.

Predator becomes prey as this Heron flips the food chain around.

Photographer Scott Martin was visiting the Viera Wetlands near Melbourne, FL, when he captured this rare encounter between a great blue heron and a small American alligator. Had the gator been a little larger, the tides would have certainly been reversed, however, mother nature was on the side of the Heron.

"The great blue heron 'played' with the little gator for at least twenty minutes before killing and swallowing it," said Scott.

Blue herons will typically eat nearly anything within striking distance, ranging from small mammals and birds to insects, fish, amphibians, and small reptiles. This species of wading bird is a common sight throughout the wetlands of the state, including ponds lakes and canals.

[VIDEO] Deer fighting Wild Turkeys

This deer is not about to share its food with these wild turkeys -- even though it's bird seed. During the winter in the North, the snow is deep, forcing both turkeys and deer to gravitate towards the same food sources.

However, this doesn't mean that they always cooperate with each other. This doe is not too happy about these wild turkeys feeding on her find.

While this family was waiting for Santa and his Reindeer to land on their roof, they heard a crash in the basement instead. Luckily, the family called animal control who later safely removed this deer from the home unharmed. This will be one Christmas this family will never forget!

How do you think this deer managed to get into the basement??  Let us know in the comments below.

[VIDEO] Moving an Insane Amount of Turkeys

How many turkeys do you see shown here?? 

If this doesn't get your blood pumping for turkey season, nothing will. Only die-hard turkeys hunters know the feeling of excitement when you hear a big Ole Tom gobbling just feet away from you. Watch as this turkey farmer orchestrates this huge movement of turkeys, while the turkeys bellow a thunderous gobble in response.

 

Now who's ready for turkey season ?? Let us know below!

These hunters sure know how to show off their harvested buck in style. Probably turned a few heads on the highway!

Bringing your harvest home or to the butchers may be routine for you at this point, but these Michigan hunters decided to mix it up a little with a little 'redneck' humor.  Jeremy Roomsburg posted the following video to his Facebook page on November 19 with the caption "This Just Happened." So far, this short ten-second video has gained an immense amount of attention, reaching 6 Million views in just the first 48 hours! Impressive by any standard! However, the 'what happened' is pretty hilarious! Check out the video below..

Best Fried Turkey Recipe

Afraid of frying turkeys in grease? Frying your turkey is a sure-fire way to keep your holiday bird super juicy on the inside (even white meat) while extra crispy on the outside. However, grease fryers can often be dangerous even for seasoned turkey frying veterans. A safer alternative is to use a grease-less or oil-less fryer. This method of cooking yields the same result as frying in oil, without the danger of catching something on fire or burning your self. Plus, it's better for your health as most recipes call for peanut oil which contains harmful trans fats. This is our favorite way to cook a turkey and the unsuspecting grazer will never know that you didn't use oil to fry your holiday turkey!  Check out our recipe below and let us know what you think:
