I did prank someone at camp, but it didn't ruin his hunt.

Had a hunter who's boots had gotten wet. He set them on the rocks at the edge of the campfire to dry. He left them there overnight. After he went to sleep I took an old pair of boots I had and cut the bottoms out of them. I placed just the bottom soles where his boots had been. We got up the next morning thinking his boots had burned up. I let him think it for a bit then gave him his boots.

Now that's creative.

I’ve added my snacks/water/rocks into friends packs and then later ask them at the top of the mountain/bluff to have them back- thanks for carrying the extra weight up the ridge!

Right before taking the hunters out in a van that would seat up to 10. They would ask the new guy, and typically a city slicker, to fill up the tires with air. Graciously wanting to fit in, he would be very willing to help. So, the loaded van would back up to the air compressor, the nubie would attempt to fill the tires. However, the tires were solid, and the stem was only there for show. Funny every time.

We can see the stand you are in and there are several deer approaching the stand from behind you. Get ready. One has horns.” And I hung up. Of course we couldn’t see deer but he thought we could and craned his neck and got excited. His response when We saw him later was, “Arseholes.”
Roflmao!!

I helped put on a large quail hunt one year. I and two other guys with me that were also the designated quail cleaners. We all had our own spots at the cleaning counter and we each had our own bucket of birds to clean.

I killed a rattlesnake a few months prior to this hunt just for this prank... I put that dead rattlesnake at the bottom of my buddies bucket and put the quail on top of it. I figured he would reach in for one bird at a time and eventually feel the snake… NOPE he decided to dump his entire bucket of birds on the counter and that snake was right on top and looked as real as it gets.

It freaked me out and I was the one who did the prank! Ha ha ha I’m still waiting on my payback. It was defiantly a heart stopping moment.

Years ago I took a friend of mine, who had no idea about anything outdoors, up to my place in ETX. He was also one of those guys who loved to brag and make up all kinds of junk that everybody else knew wasn't true. But we put up with it because it really was amusing.

During the car ride up there, me and my other buddies set in to convincing him that bears were making a come back in that part of Texas.

At dusk the next evening, I asked him to go with me down to a pond in the woods. He agreed. So we left on foot. My other buddies followed us and dropped off the trail before they got to the pond.

On our way back, the "bears" started making a bunch of noise in the woods just out of sight.

This guy started out walking on my left side, cue the noise, and before I knew it, he was behind me on my right side with his hand on my shoulder practically tap dancing he was so scared. He had put me in between himself and the "bears".

I only let it go on for about 30 seconds before I died laughing and the guys came running out of the woods.

He hasn't been back.

I just ordered a rattle snake tail off E-bay and a old alarm clock. Total cost, $43.68. Getting to see my brother break the land speed record, PRICELESS.

Not while hunting, but had a buddy back in school that wanted to start a prank war. It ended when I put two packs of clear jello in his toilet, let it set up, then sprayed a little more water on top of it making it look as though it was just regular toilet water. He wasn't happy when he realized the only way to get it out is to dig it out after using it...

Best one I heard was a taped up compressed air horn to the deer blind office chair...imagine sneaking at dark & having one of those go off inside a closed blind as you ease into your sit!!

This sounds like a good prank to do at work!

We had a funny looking horn. It was round in shape and the sound would go in your face.

Thus, we'd put baby powder in the horn and it sat under a sign - "Turkey call"

It was there for Guest and New Members.

Like clock work, someone would always pick it up and blow it. The baby powder went everywhere.

Good times.

Ok, so here’s another fun one. It involves the toilet paper in the rest room and a sharpie/pen. Roll out some of the TP. Now grab your sharpie/pen and draw (don’t forget to color in) a spider. Next, roll the TP back to where the “spider” is hidden between the roll and the wall, but there still enough TP to just grab and pull. Now wait for your buddy/wife/kids to go in and pull the TP. Just don’t forget you’ve set this up...
