LMAO!
You sounded like a little school girl w/ a deep voice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol:

Had a redtail hawk knock the hat of my head w/ minutes left of the evening hunt while standing on the ground hoping to shoot a deer.
I thought I was going to crap a 10 pound brick and only saw it in my peripheral vision, the darn wing gave me dry eye!
I'm sure I screeched or something too... :oops:

Not sure what my facial features it is but i almost get it each season...typically an owl....

These sharpshin hawks keep dive bombing a seculded field where i hunt and I swear the white flashes from their underwings have trashed deer activity there
Green and growing... Or red and rotting

X2 Think I mentioned it a couple times already but almost got it from a great hornerd owl years ago.

Dewey maybe you need to carry a net with you to do some close up biological work.

Dang! For whatever reason I can't view this. Sounds like it was a close call but pretty cool to see.
