The Situation:

Muskrat tunnels caved in next to a slough and underneath it was nothing short of quicksand.

How We Got Unstuck:

Used a trackhoe to dig out mud from underneath and behind wheels, then used the trackhoe bucket to unload the hopper into the grain truck. Then, used the trackhoe bucket and straps to remove the straight cut header. Finally, with the help of two 4WD tractors along with the trackhoe, we were able to pull the combine out.

#1 Lesson Learned:

From now on, we will always cut around sloughs so that the unloading auger faces away from the wet side. Lol.
