Old guy got a Booner today
Working at the guest ranch and heard all hell break loose. Sounded like something was getting killed down at the barn...... the thing is as big as him! He got a really bad cut lip and was pretty sore moving the rest of the day.
Marmot....we call them whistle pigs.
Colorado Marmot season opens on August 10. Limit 2 per day
He's kind of a out law.... keeps trying to tell me it was self defense.
Got one yesterday with the truck driving home. Damn things!
Did ya grill it or make stew.
I had to read the title a couple times before opening.
So that wasn't just me...
Dang!! imagine if that dog weighed 200 lbs.
Ole guys Rock. As Toby Keith says “I ain’t as good as I once was but I’m good once as I ever was”.
Does he want you too take it to the taxidermy:)
That old fella is a bad ass.
Our PA groundhogs look very similar to your marmot and we call them whistle pigs as well.
Dogs that can take out groundhogs on a regular basis have also reached that level of badassery. The groundhogs usually get some good licks in.
He can still cut the mustard!
Reminds of an old Inuit woman that they were wanting to put in a rest home or something similar and she went out and snared a rabbit to make her point.
Dogs that really know how to kill just pick their spot and move in and then it is dead in a few chomps. Coon hounds that have been around the block are amazing at how they can kill.
May not be good as he once was but he's as good once as he ever was.
He's a killer, just like Daddy Forest.
No need for donkeys around your place, a real bitch'n wiener dog for sure.
Well, we now know the answer to the age old question of how much rock a rock chuck would chuck...not enough to get away from that beast! Way to go old man!
I think you miss-spelled something. 8)
Great trophy photo. Frame a picture and hang it in the ranch house.
Fir the creepy old guys Boner is one n not two.
He looks so proud!! Awesome pic!
The best dogs just have no quit in them. Awesome picture!
Brings back memories,cool picture.
I call that fearless! Probably just another day at the office for him. Great picture!
Charlie that was BigDans theme song just saying congrats to the killer loved to have witnessed that fight Good luck and thanks for sharing Lewis
Our poodle/cocker mix tries like hell to get the chipmunks, rabbits and groundhogs around the house but only seems to catch baby birds. Some friends come over a couple weeks ago with their wiener dog and that thing was a chipmunk killing machine that evening. Crazy how the slower wiener dog was able to catch the chipmunks with ease compared to our faster dog.
Impressive kill. Great trophy pic.
My whippet did the same quite a few years back. It tore it to pieces. I saved what I could ( it literally was a mess ) , and trow it in the barby for her to eat. She didn't care for it , so I fed it to my older whippet.
Cool pic, but he seems to be long-pawing it a little…
I know that marmots hang out mostly in rocky terrain, but can they climb trees? Years ago, my dog took off after a groundhog, that got caught out in the middle of the pasture. I figured the chuck was a goner, but he made it to the only tree in the pasture, and shinnied up that tree just like a dang squirrel! Until then, I had no idea they could climb trees.
nevermind..... I read the title wrong.... thought it was a blue pill ad......
Congrats to him, bet he was stuttin' around like a pup... Bet those things could put up a fight. Maybe not a 12 lb tomcat fight but pretty solid. =D
"That's a damn good dog" (Stephen Epperly)
How do you get your dog to smile? ...... sic 'em on a marmot.
You could have sold that fight on PPV if you got it on video.. Thats Badassery right there..
No matter which way you read it, he should still be proud! ;-)
Dog was lucky..... could'a been an oppassamim....
