Re: And This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef . . .

The Thing That Shall Not Be Named?

Bow and Arrow?

Guys…looking at the video, it is easy to see these porkers are paddling out to the boat and swimming IN the water. So….

What a real sailor wants for that is a HARPOON!

Aye!

But which one?

That depends on which generation of sailor.

Pig/chicken tattoo on ankles or calves. Pigs and chickens don't like water so the tattoos will protect you. Or so the old sailor logic said. Or at least that's what the old navy guy told me...

Re: And This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef . . .

Just so ALL swimming pigs do not have their reputations tarnished with the same brush...

Everyone in Texas knows pigs can swim.




And those two piglets are so cute. I suspect most men will enjoy seeing these two.



But, the momma hog does not care to be petted:

Just crying to get bitten. You could put about 4 of them little piglets on one spit.

Florida must be close behind. No license, no closed season. Wild Boar Hunt | Ron's Guide Service Most people hunt with a gun but there are some that hunt with a spear or knife. The day before my hunt the client was a woman - with a knife. She out-ran the guide & stabbed the beast multiple times before he caught up. Guide thought she had issues.

The ribs on the grill were excellent.


SO, is this Salt Port we are talking about?

Keep the dinghy moving and kind of do a drive by, throwing the treats away from you. Those pigs are kind of pushy, and look really huge when they swim right up to the dink. They will bump you, and try to climb in. Man, I never saw anyone dressed like that lady, going to pig beach.

Definitely doesn't look kosher to me.
