Goose?
A pheasant hunter was unwise a few years ago and surprised a sow with cubs. Fortunately she only chewed on his heel a little.

When I was a lot younger (and faster) I was with friends hiking in Yellowstone not far from the Yellowstone River. We saw a Moose cow with two calves near by. Suddenly the wind shifted and she smelled us and decided we shouldn't be there. When she charged us we headed into the trees (as we had no guns or dogs), where the trees were so dense and she was so big that she could not get through. She decided to go back to the calves and we decided to head back to the lodge for well needed drinks!

Back in the mid 60's I took a little side road North of Butte & about 2 Miles NW of the trial grounds
to do a little grouse hunting. Had our sheepdog with me & a model 42 .410 shotgun. Wandered
around & must have come off of one of the knobs on the wrong side. Found us next to a willowy
swamp that showed evidence of moose. No trees of any size to climb. knew the dog would head
to me if they encountered one. Distanced myself from there as fast as I could & very happy to get
back to the jeep without seeing one. If you've worked with cattle you know how big & dangerous a
moose can be.
I will be glad to buy it if your boys don't want it.;)

Marvin, HPL would likely make a grammar call that writing "a model 42 410" is a redundancy. To my knowledge it is the only designed as and never offered in anything but 410.

A man's stripes can be earned in many ways BUT, in my opinion, a waterfowler's pelts are no better than muskrat quality until he skins a limit of greentoppers standing on the shady side of a pin oak with a 42!

HPL would be correct, at least for folks knowledgeable about guns, not all people are.
But I will say, sorry my financial circumstances weren't better. Sitting beside you in a dinghy
while you hid behind a tree & shot those greenheads would have been worth free delivery.

John - If you want no shot in the breast you know what you have to do.
