Default Three in the morning noise

Did anybody hear what sounds like gunshots or explosions early this morning? I know about threads regarding noises but this early? Have no idea but curious.

We live on Palmer - Riley. My wife heard a number of what she called gunshots. There were a number of sheriff cars riding up and down 466 during the noise. Interested in finding out what really happened.

I'm in Winifred and they sounded like they were in my back yard. My little yorkie went on guard like a pit bull. At 3-ish, I first heard at least three "shots," followed by another few. Shortly after those, I heard another set. I called 911 and was told they were patrolling the area trying to locate the source. Certainly unsettling to be awaken by those sounds.

Troubling. Are you close to him, Chi-town?

I live in Bonnybrook and at 3:00 AM was awoken by what all of you describe. It occurred twice causing me to take a peek outside. I suspect but can verify that perhaps it is wood framing or siding expanding with the rising temperature?

I didn't hear anything, but was it possibly the Navy bombing in the forest? I didn't read anything in the paper about.

That is a bit heavy armament for duck hunting, don't you think?
