THE KILLER MUST DIE!

…MY DOGS DON’T HUDDLE UNLESS THEY ARE ON A HOG.

IT WAS ABOUT 2 A.M., I WORKED A FULL DAY AND WAS WORN OUT. I WAS 3 HOURS FROM BEING UP 24 HOURS STRAIGHT. MY DOGS HADN’T HUNTED IN 2 WEEKS. WE WERE ALL GETTING SOFT AND I WAS TIRED.

THE DOGS HAD BEEN OUT OF SIGHT FOR 20 MINUTES. I STARTED HEARING A FEW YELPS AND BARKS. MY DOGOS ARE SILENT, MY JAGD TERRIER WILL BARK IF HE GETS THROWN OFF THE HOG BUT IS GENERALLY SILENT, MY CURS ENGAGE AS I EXPECT THEM TO. THE SOUNDS WERE NOT OF MY PACK ON A CAUGHT HOG. I KEPT SEEING THE DOGS ON MY GPS IN THE SAME SPOT, NOT MOVING. THEY WERE ABUT 500 YARDS OUT. THE DOGS WOULD GO SILENT THEN RANDOMLY OPEN UP. IT SOUNDED LIKE COYOTES. MY DOGS, ALL BUT THE JAGD TERRIER ARE “TRASH BROKE”. WHAT IN THE WORLD WAS GOING ON? WHAT WAS MAKING THESE NOISES AND KEEPING MY DOGS IN ONE SPOT?

I HAVE SEEN MANY COYOTES ON THE FARM AND WONDERED IF MY PACK ENGAGED THE ‘YOTES. I KNEW IT WAS TIME TO START JUMPING THE CATTLE FENCES AND GET TO THE ACTION. I DREW MY WEAPON AND PREPARED TO BATTLE FOR MY PACK JUST AS THEY DO FOR ME EACH TIME WE HUNT. WHEN I ARRIVED I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED TO FIND A 300 POUND BOAR CAUGHT IN A SHALLOW POND.

THE HIGH PITCHED YELPS AND BARKS CAME FROM THE DOGS ENGAGING THIS MONSTER. I JUST RAN 500 YARDS WITH BOOTS AND A BACK PACK, I WAS SPENT. THE DOGS HAD BEEN BATTLING THIS MONSTER FOR 15 MINUTES, THE DOGS AND BOAR WERE BOTH SPENT. MY BEST DOG IS VIXEN, SHE HAD THE BOARS EAR. THE BOAR AND VIXEN FACING EACH OTHER. THE PIG GOT A BOOST OF ENERGY, GRABBED A MOUTH FULL OF HER CUT VEST AND PROCEEDED TO PUMMEL HER THEN TAKE HER UNDER THE WATER. “THE KILLER MUST DIE”! I DREW MY KNIFE AND RAN THROUGH THE POND TO EXPIRE THIS BOAR AND SAVE MY VIXEN GIRL. BEFORE I GOT THERE HE LET HER UP. SHE WAS DAZED, HE WAS SPENT FROM THE DOGS HANGING FROM HIM.

OUT OF NOWHERE VIXEN CAUGHT HER BREATH, LUNGED OUT OF THE WATER, AND PULLED THE BOAR’S HEAD UNDER WATER BY HIS EAR…… “THE KILLER MUST DIE”! I HAD FINALLY REACHED THE GREAT BATTLE. THE BOAR TOWERED OVER THE DOGS, THE POND WAS ALMOST KNEE DEEP, THE BOARS BACK WAS MOSTLY VISIBLE ABOVE WATER. I REACHED IN AND STABBED HIM, HIS BLOOD EVACUATED INTO THE POND TURNING THE WATER WHERE WE STOOD RED. THE KILLER MUST DIE!

THE DOGS NEVER LET UP, AT LEAST 15 MINUTES OF BATTLING THIS MONSTER IN WATER. EACH DOG WAS BLEEDING FROM THE TUSK. THE BOAR GOT HIS TUSK UNDER ONE DOGS CUT COLLAR CUTTING HER SEVERAL TIMES. THE CURS HAD HOLES AND BITES AS WELL.

BUT, THE KILLER IS DEAD!
