This bridge is on the Old Donner Pass Highway .  It has a spectacular view of  Donner  Lake and  Donner Pass on Route 80. A bear was walking across Rainbow Bridge (Old Hwy 40) at Donner Summit, Truckee) on Saturday when two cars also crossing the bridge scared the bear into jumping over the edge of the bridge.  Somehow the bear caught the ledge (see unbelievable photo, above) and pulled itself to safety. Authorities decided that nothing could be done to help Saturday night so they returned Sunday morning to find the bear sound asleep on the ledge. After securing a net under the bridge the bear was tranquilized, fell into the net, lowered, then woke up and walked out of the net.

There is a moral to this story you know. This old bear made a wrong move and found he was hanging by his nails. Somehow he was able to pull himself up onto the ledge where he saw he was in a very bad, impossible situation and what did he do? Yep, he took a nap and sure enough the situation took care of itself while he was asleep. The moral is that when confronted with a bad situation sometimes the best solution is . . .
take a nap.

Here is a  buck that a hunter got in Wisconsin.  He sent  these  pictures to a bunch of people to see what he  could get and the owner of Cabela's paid him $13,000 for the head and hide.  A calico buck, like the one below, is rarer then an albino.

Now this is a fishing tale!

Medical Student catch 359-Lb Grouper
THIBODAUX , La. --A medical student who blindfolds his friends to keep his favorite offshore fishing spot secret has come up with a record-beating fish -- a warsaw grouper weighing 359.1 pounds. The giant hauled in by JJ Tabor of Thibodaux is 12 ounces above the previous Louisiana state record, a state biologist confirmed.

 Thought you might enjoy a real fish tale.  This is the new record in Canada.  He caught it on Rainy Lake.  Check this thing out.  The last picture is unbelievable!  This guy was fishing and caught a 36" Pike - as he was reeling it in, a 56" Pike tried to eat it!!!!! He brought them both in on the  same net.  Awesome catch on a Lake   in Canada - 55 lbs- 56 inches.

PETE is standing on his back deck which is about two feet off of the ground, and he is about six one and 250 lbs so she (the moose) is a fair sized critter. This  picture was taken near Sudbury, ONTARIO, Canada.

Nebraska Nebraska Record

I was checking my deer at Mahoney State Park on Sunday when I saw the deer pictured. He was checking this deer at the same time. I would have told someone this was a doctored photo if I didn't witness it myself. The game warden was there and guessed the age to be 7-8 years? He said it should be a 38 point rack? I did not count. This will probably be the new state record according to the warden. It will be pictured in Nebraska Land Magazine n December. The guy that shot it was in his mid 20s. A guy around 60 congratulated him and told him to cherish this because he has never seen anything like it in his years of hunting. If you don't hunt you may know someone that would appreciate it. Have a good one!
