That's the lyrics behind this video. I hope the link works.

(Note to self: don't ever go hog huntin'!)

Good record of animal behavior regarding the buck deer.  Notice he never once used his antlers as offensive weapons?  All foreleg slashes.  Pretty cool.

Had the sound turned down. If there was any narration I missed. What I saw on the behalf of the hunters was a particular lack of predatory aggression, i.e. Too much hesitation, flinching, failure of defense through no offensive action.  :shrug:

You had to hear the sound track. I was laughing through the whole thing. It isn't narration, it's a song.

I've been on the loosing end of an argument with a feral domestic hog. Hesitation has nothing to do with being charged by a 300 lb tusker. Hahaha.  Stand your ground if you want...we'll send flowers.

The guy with the db was the only shot I saw fired. One had a BP muzz, and another a lever action. Looked like they never shot. Maybe the BP guy had discharged with no reload. Why not use the gun as a club?

Or start running sooner

I'm not saying I would win, just what I saw in the vid

Jeez, that's a great video, and the song fits.

Didja see the video of the idiot whose rifle misfires, so he looks down the barrel...and it goes off!  :doh:  The guy survives only because the kick of the late-fire cartridge jumped the barrel away from his head, he just got a groove in his forehead and a nifty 30 cal hole in the brim of his cap.  But to see the video, you'd swear he 'sploded his head.

  I've been hunting and fishing for most of my life, small game, upland birds, deer, black bear, and wild boars, Russians and Razorbacks and never had an animal attack me like those in that video,  probably because I never let them get that close,  and rarely need a follow up shot.

  As far as the song goes,  pretty much the truth,  if you're gonna be dumb, you'd better be tough.

A bunch of us farmers used to get in our cb radio equipped pickups on Sunday afternoons to hunt coyotes.  One of my neighbors in the group instinctively tried to stop a mortally wounded 'yote from escaping into a deep ravine by stepping on its tail......that's when the 'song dog' promptly turned around and bit him deeply in his calf-muscle.   A high price to pay for a winter-prime coyote pelt, but funny as hell for the rest of us! :P :lol: :lol: :lol:

  Yep, and when I was a kid a few of us boys would go hunting for cotton tails and squirrels after school let out, more than once I saw one of them running for home with a wounded squirrel dangling from a bloody thumb,  it pays to make sure they are dead before picking them up by the tail, only common sense.

OK, I don't care who, but somebody owes me a keyboard! I have been treed by a boar, layed my bow down to light a smoke and he charged me from behind. All I could do was jump straight up and catch a limb. Kept me up there for over an hour.

You and I belong to the same club!  I was bowhunting also, but I was challenged by a half-dozen feral domestic hogs. Big suckers, with tusks to match.  You got off lucky. I was up the only tree in the field for 4+ hours until it got dark and they lost interest.
