Bayonets in the News - When Redheads Get Bored


Bored Redheads - Trouble Then. . .


Still Trouble . . . .

Me:  Dialing (cough cough) lowering voice

Ring Ring

Me:  "May I speak to Agent D. Please, yes, I'll wait."

Division of Wildlife Agent: "D. speaking, how can I help you?"

Me: "Yes I'd like to inquire as to when bayonet season is?"

Agent: "HUH. . . . did you say . . . bayonet?"

Me: "Yes, I'd like to take a deer using the bayonet on my Mauser "

Agent: " Wait. Miss. Did you say a Mauser? No. Firearm season doesn't start for a couple of weeks. You can't take a deer with a firearm yet."

Me: "I don't want to shoot it. OH no. I just want to Bayonet it! I've been practicing! I bet I can rush it now and kill it with one good poke."

Agent: (long pause. . . . heavy sigh)

Me: "Sir, Is it before or after Archery?"

chuckle

Agent: Brigid?!. . . .

I'm lucky I have family members who have a good sense of humor. I promise, I may on occassion poke the bear, poke fun at politicians and do the hokie pokie,  but I won't poke the deer.

Love - Brigid

If anyone could do it.....

Would you rush them from the ground, or descend from above using your deer stand as a platform?

naturegirl said...

LMAO.....Oh, oh, Little Brigid....

Did that adorable look keep you out of getting yelled at? hehe......

I'm sure it's OK to use bayonets when rattling up a buck. Or if you are surrounded and out of ammunition.

An old hillbilly I knew shot a deer out of season. When we asked him about it, he explained that he had no choice.

"I shot him in self-defense ... or as he jumped the fence. I never can remember which way it is."

So, when is bayonet season? :)

Rev. Paul said...

I figure it ain't bragging if you can do it. :^)

Well Seasoned Fool said...

Assuming you will use a Mauser as a bayonet holder, what would be the proper bayonet?

MO Bro said...

Dropping from a tree onto it's back and then pokin' it works real good I hear... 'course I've never done it myself so I don't know fer sure!

I fixed bayonets in 1983, in Grenada. The bad guys ran away.

Mac from Michigan said...

And do you poke the dragon?

immagikman said...

Too funny :) Wish the people I worked with had a sense of humor :P

Mac -

Do not poke dragons. For you are crunchy, and good with ketchup.

If you get the deer drunk first on some fermented apple peels and cores, it might even the playing field a bit, But the deer still has you outnumbered with four hooves and antlers (if it's a buck), so be careful.

Never say never :-D

This would not be as funny if I did not personally know people that have taken game animals (Deer, sheep, Hogs) with Spears and knives.

What if the Hokie Pokie really IS what it's all about?
