    The hunt...for the last two weeks I have had a varmint tearing my place up. Very cleaver beast that out smarted me at every turn. Too smart for traps and bait. So fast I never was even able to get a good look at him. Today, I see the grass twitching, the soil buckling, I get my spear and throw it with all my might! He's too fast and dodges the razor sharp blade. The chase is on! He breaks into the opening, things turn into slow motion as I heave my spear toward the beast. My trusty blade hits its mark...the beast is dead.

    Now before you nay sayers get going, this is the actual size of the beast. No photo shop or trick photography was used. I used no dogs nor back up weapons, just me, the beast, and my spear.

    Anyone know of a good taxidermist?

    Nice shooting'... err... chuckin'. ;f I would suggest a slow fire and lots of salt and pepper.

    Of late I've been in a battle with the local pigeons. The wife signed off on the resolution calling for their demise. If I come across the leader he will be charged with crimes against grass seed and terrorist acts of pooping. Though we don't expect to capture any alive. ;f

    Mmmm, good advise but I decided to cook it in a pit, had it with Ferber beans and a nice Cianti.

    It is just so sad to see citizens of California having to devolve to the level of primitives to defend their homesteads from creatures looking to destroy their property.

    Up here, we use a rifle instead of a spear.

    Yep, you got it...they get 6 feet long here! (Well, 6 inches anyway).

    Rifle, yea I've heard of those, they are all banned here though so we are reduced to hunting with spears and clubs!

    The spear certainly got the job done. You may want to upgrade to a slingshot for greater effective range though.
