I knew the one upper guy. Same guy who if wasn't one upping he was just making stories up for the attention. We all knew he was full of crap, but just let him tell his stories.

Two years ago I had a trail camera stolen. After season this year I was helping a friend set up trail cameras, he doesn't have a computer and asked me to clear SD cards before we put them up.

First SD card I put into my computer ended up being the card from the camera I had stolen.


Long story short I have an extra camera and one less "friend".

I know a guy that drinks so much I'm pretty sure he truly believes in his heart that a mountain lion ate a house cat on his back porch. That's just one of many stories. I've heard the same ones a thousand times and they change just a little bit every time. I think he gets so drunk he doesn't really know what he saw. It's always some crazy thing he saw that nobody else has ever seen before.

"I saw a mountain lion by my house." Oh ok you saw a big bobcat.

"I saw a bald eagle kill a deer." Ok yeah hawks do eat rabbits occasionally.

That's kind of how you have to treat his stories.

Really stupid, I also found lots of pictures of him driving into a field at night with a female passenger and leaving 45 minutes later. He is married and the female in the picture wasn't his wife... Guess he forgot I had a camera set up on the road . Hmmmm.

We had a lease member 5 yrs ago that couldn't be one up'd. All of his stories had a little bit of truth but the rest of stuff was Hollywood worthy...

One morning he brought in a hand written score sheet of a mid 180's buck that he observed at 300 yds. After the story I asked the other lease member present what he saw that morning. He said "not much, I could only see 50 yds in that fog". I said "Me too". We have community blinds and he never hunted that blind again the rest of the season.

Some of the ones I remember:

Killed a guy in self defense.
Shot a B&C Mule Deer at 600 yds that was stolen from the taxidermist
Played college football
Wife was a pro tennis player
Owned a top fuel dragster

That being said, he was a super nice guy and would give you the shirt off his back. I never understood why he had to tell those crazy stories and it made it hard to trust him when he was at the lease by himself.

Was at the store the other day, rough looking dude in front of me sees the fresh pinnapple I got for the kids and says " last time I went to europe, they had a dole machine that skinned and cored pinapples automatically, not sure why they dont have them here. I bought 3 just to watch it".

Funny thing is I just watch the same video on facebook the night before.

Those are the best. And as they retell a story you were personally involved in they give you the side-eye glance a few times to see if you're going to correct them.

I know of only one and he is a friend. If I caught a 20lb yellow cat he caught one bigger. If I got 2 inches of rain he got 2.5 inches of rain. I just laugh and carry on. I'm not the only person in town that laughs about this. Guess he's a one upper rather than a liar.

1982-83 I was five or six years old. My uncle Bill used to take me on dates with him to his girlfriend's house (now wife). We used to tell tall tales to my aunts father, all about the hunting exploits we had in the Amazon and Africa. Good times!

I was only 6 years old, but I can tell you, I'd wrastled anacondas 20ft or more.

These days I'm not a big fan of being lied to. I've got a buddy I've known for 30+ years, he will look you in the eye and bull**** you. Always been that way, and always will. Difference is, you call bull**** he will just smile and says yea, the whole thing is entertaining as hell. It's the people who stick to the lies that get in my craw.

We have this boy in the neighborhood up until he was probably 11 yrs old he would ride around on his bike. And when ever he’d see me outside he ride up and tell me about his latest adventure. It would range from going to the beach last weekend and being bit by a shark or an alligator trying to get him and him having to fight it with his bare hands or his football team is going to the Super Bowl. Again !! It’s not even Football season. I think he he even walked away from a plane crash. I always went along with him and let him talk and ask him questions about his adventures. The whole time my son who is like 3 yrs younger than him would just be watching and listening and not knowing what to say . Because he didn’t believe a word that other kid was saying.

Just like that one time when ol’ Ms Texas wanted to marry me. Told her this 100% choice grade man stud ain’t getting hitched to nobody, no matter how big her...hair was. What’s her name???

I had a cousin, that I grew up with, that lied constantly and really embellished the truth all his life. We had several fist fights as kids as a result. He always went home crying and with black eyes. We were both in the military at the same time. He was a radio operator in the Navy.

About 10 years ago, I guess his lies finally caught up with him. He put a .45 in his mouth and ended his life. At his funeral, a co-worker got up to say a few words and related some of my cousins "stories". According to this young man, my cousin, during his 3 years in the Navy had flown fighter jets and killed many NVA and VC in hand to hand combat.

Makes no since he is actually a great guy, and his wife is a s nice as it gets. Me and my neighbors just do not understand why he lies non stop.

I knew a guy that claimed to be a Navy SEAL. He was always having to go on "special ops" missions. He would be gone for a couple weeks then come back saying he couldn't reveal any details about his trip because it was "top secret." He had this haughty attitude and it seemed like he had done everything.

He didn't like me because I wasn't impressed by his stories. Also, he was a terrible liberal and loved to argue about politics. I figured he had inferiority issues. There was no way this pasty, overweight, overly sensitive, pathetic dork was one of the Navy's elite. He seemed like this guy that couldn't tear his way out of a wet paper bag.

Out of curiosity I googled his name and found where he was actually serving on the Central Texas UDT-SEAL Association committee. It's still possible he was lying or exaggerating about his service or maybe there was truth to his stories after all. His claims sure sounded suspicious but I was never able to confirm my doubts.

He probably was an Ex Seal service member and his new gig, working Security Ops overseas as a consultant? I know a few guys who do this.. or did this. You do to....you didn't know he did that for a living though Courtney. Ex Army Ranger...type.....harking back to the days of MOJO and Hoyt shooters somewhere in West Texas.

The ex-military guys, can and will lose their lean shape after a few years of separation if, they don't stay on a fitness program. But some of these guys do have training, that's in demand overseas, and that new program isn't as sexy as the Military program. Never is.

Last summer we took a family vacation to Breckenridge and I booked a fly fishing trip for me and my sons. The guide worked out of the Orvis store and picked us up for the 45 minute drive to our fishing spot. From that moment to when he dropped us off 6 hours later he never stopped talking. In the first 10 minutes we learned he had the flyfishing world or American records for dozens of different species. He was best friends with countless movie and sports stars. He was also best friends with Jimmy Houston, Bill Dance, Roland Martin and every fly fishing legend from Lefty Kreh on down. He noticed I had some Bass Pro gear and said Johnny Morris just stayed at his house. I brought up bow hunting and he said he had killed 3 B&C elk with his recurve. It just kept coming, relentless and non-stop. It was exhausting. I brought up the movie "A River Runs Through It" and he said he did all the fly casting for that movie. (I later Googled that - B.S) I got the feeling some of what he said was probably partially true, but jeez... After he dropped us off my son said - that guy is either "the Most Interesting Man in the World" or "The Most Full of **** Man in the World!"

Miss some of our gatherings. Been a long time since some of us went afield as a big gaggle-dysfunctional group.

But when someone posts a 10-12 pound catfish and says it was 50 pounds or shot a 180 pound hog and says it was 400.. whatever you do don't be the guy that calls BS10

we all hate liars but for some reason most here take up for the liar and put down the one who calls them out.

I know his brother. His name is Larry Thomas, and he's a guide on Tawokoni. Him and his 1 tooth, know more about brain surgery than fishing.

My best friends cousin swears, that when he was in the Navy, and on a detroyer, he got on the bridge in the middle of the night, and did a 50 mile circle without anyone knowing. Put the ship back on the exact course. He said the next day, someone noticed they were way behind, but they never figured it out.
