Was this for real or just a bad hoax?

Not long ago the killer clown craze was all the rage.

Take a look back at the video that sparked such debate across the web.


Imagine that scene in this video shared by YouTuber ClownTueurVideo. You are up in your treestand with your bow ready for your big buck to come by. Instead of a buck, it is a madman dressed like a clown, armed with a big butcher knife. He stands silently under your treestand, looking up at you menacingly while holding the gleaming steel knife.

The hunter swears this knife-wielding clown was quite real. Afterwards, he was so shaken by the encounter that he waited in his treestand for two hours for law enforcement to escort him out safely. A well done fake or an actual threat? You decide.

What would you do if this really happened to you?
