Would you like to know how you can loose your shoes on a hunting trip?

That’s a good question and it deserves a good answer, so I am going to tell you.  A hunter who has hunted since he was big enough to carry a rifle is on his way to hunt squirrels. He travels over hills and forest that stretches for miles. So after so long of this journey he decides he’s going to sit down by a tree and kick back and relax for a bit.  Leaves left over from fall have dried and crinkled all over the ground.  While he’s resting he saw a squirrel only a few feet away from him on a tree. He watches quietly as it jumps on the next tree and skimps across the branches. Disgusted by the fact that he didn’t shoot it right away  he decides to get up and go find it. The problem is it’s too close and there are all these leaves around him. So he gently takes off his shoes and begins to quietly walk up the hill towards the squirrel. As the squirrel begins to move up the hill further he continues to follow it, determined to kill this squirrel.  While on his journey up this hill A woman who lives right below where he had been hunting, is traveling the woods looking for raspberries. No one knows what made this woman think the way she thought. But she finds this man’s shoes and he’s no where around. She grabs his shoes and runs back down the hill to her house.  She starts to yell, “call the police! Call the police there is a maniac in the woods!” “She has a grown son at home, who asks her, “what’s wrong, Mom?”  She says, “There is a mad man in the woods, but I have got his shoes so he can’t go far. Call the police before he tries to get away.” About this time the man worn out and sore from walking bare foot for so long on twigs and pine cones, comes down behind their house. He could hear the woman hollering about having his shoes and figured out that’s where his shoes had gone.   The woman’s boy says, “ma that’s just the neighbor, you’ve stole the mans shoes.” The woman is rather scared or embarrassed and throws the shoes down on the ground and runs in her house. The boy says to the man, “sorry about that I think she has been watching too much of America’s most wanted.” The man puts his shoes on and looks at the boy while laughing and says, “You know what? To beat it all the squirrel got away”.True story.
