It’s a coon?

Three other men and I went hunting with three dogs. One of the guys was new and had never been coon hunting, boy was he in for a surprise! As we got started into the woods, we turned the dogs loose about fifty yards in. Some of the guys were telling stories about previous hunts and the new guy was all ears.

Suddenly the dogs started barking we all stopped, we new the dogs where on the trail of a coon! The new guy asked, “how do you know it’s a coon?” “oh we know because we have been hunting a long, long…………. Time”. As we moved along, walking through heavy brush, and around a lot of trees. It was hard to keep up with the dogs but we managed.

Into the hunt about forty five minutes the dogs had treed the Coon!. Suddenly the dogs started barking louder, we knew the Coon was on the move! One of the guys said, the dogs were moving to fast for it to be a Coon (Oh Yeah!). New guy asked “what do you think it is”? “We don’t know!” you could tell he was a little scared. To be true full about it, we were all a little concerned.

The dogs were getting closer as we stood there for about five minutes. What ever it was it was headed straight for us! One of the guys heard some noise and said. “Its wild hogs!”. Some one said “RUN!” another one replied “WE DON’T HAVE TIME, YOU ALL BETTER FIND A TREE TO CLIMB”!

Where we were in the woods, they were only small sapling trees’ around. Well up the little trees we went! We did not know if they would hold us but up we went anyways! Looking at the new guy (his tree was too small it started to bend over) I hollered, “FIND ANOTHER TREE FAST!” he did, you have never seen anyone move so fast! We were hanging on for our life when those “wild hogs” came right under us “snorting”, and grunting. We knew it was time to be scared! The dogs (close behind the hogs) ran them off, thank goodness!

We climbed down out of the trees. The new guy scared to death still. He mocked us all by repeating what we had said earlier “Oh Yeah! It’s a coon! We know because we had been hunting a long ………………. long time!” We all laughed.

Today when one of us tells the story, we think of what the new Guy said, and we start laughing.

(Location of this hunt was south west of Orlando, Florida. This was Before Disney moved in the area.)
