    Default What would you do ?

    I was watching the TV program What would you do and thought of a issue that happened today

    I went pheasant hunting at a spot where a couple of guys are always hunting

    This one guy has a young golden. Anyway I was hunting by myself and I saw a pheasant sitting in the grass right next to a cattle trail. I saw this golden heading down this trail , I called my dog to heel, I figured the golden would flush the bird and I'd shoot if for her, plus make my dog honor. The golden saw the pheasant and kept heading for the guys truck. After the dog went by I released my dog and shot the pheasant. I ran into this guy and told him what happened and that his dog was headed to the truck the last time I saw him.

    We walked back to the outfits together and when he got to his truck the dog was waiting on him. He opened the door and came out with a belt and grabbed the dog and started saying" bad dog" and whipping this dog.

    What would you have done ?

    I would have made an offer to buy his dog - it needed to be saved from his owner. I try to keep a few $20's on hand for ARCO gas emergencies.

    Welllll....that's a tough one....ok....no it's not. I'd have suggested to that guy that the dog didn't deserve a beating for not knowing what he was supposed to do.

    What did you do? I definitely would've yelled at the guy out of gut reaction. Not sure what would have come of that. Maybe Debbie has the best approach. Would have confronted him for sure to make it stop. It's scary to think about having a confrontation with a guy when both of you have guns.

    Beat the guy with my belt pretty good, then asked him if he was confused as to why in the world I was beating him with a belt. When he agreed he was confused, then I would tell him good, because your dog is too.

    I suppose you could calmly explain to him that everything happens for a reason. So then, when I cuff you up side your head, I had a reason. Really, what could you do aside from starting a fight with the guy? Might ask him why he reacted that way toward his dog? Maybe turn it into a teaching thing but I bet nothing you could do would make it better. Duckdon

    Ya just have to stay calm and stop the madness!
    What works well ,at least for me, is just take off all your clothes.
    It stops most tuff guys like all a you, dead in their tracks!
    In most cases,If ya drive with no pants on,it will get you out of most tickets too, cause the Cop donts want ya to step outa the car and put yer hands over the hood, when you is de- dressed like that.

    Works every time.

    before ya start swinging fists, just take the time to think, then do the unexpected.

    I certainly would have said something!!! Surprising he would hit his dog like that? and sad? Maybe take the licence plate number and report him as well to the authorities?
    What would have been better is if you two started discussing what is the best way to teach this dog not to go by a pheasant but to flush it out, rather than beat the dog. I guess not-very sad!!
