I was checking my ladder stand to make sure the straps and everything were ok and my brother spots this guy in the same tree out on a limb.

Exactly what I thought. Then I saw 'Porcky'. My FILs dog caught one in the back yard. It wasn't pretty.

That is camo from the old armrests that used to be on it.

Crazy how well those things can climb.


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Better than climbing up on your stand and having a bobcat in the same tree above your head. This happened to a buddy when bow hunting.

I've never seen one in the U.S. Saw an African version in South Africa and brought home a couple of the quills. Big!

I was climbing around in a small cave when I came across on of them pokey guys, he was less than a foot from my face. He just slowed turned around and puffed up.
Scared me pretty good.
