that Byrd CaraCara2 I mentioned a few dozen posts ago, it is an import version of the Spyderco, only like $18 or something vs $70+ for a 'real' made-in-USA spyderco... way good deal for a way sharp and serious knife. its a lock blade, and the hole in the blade helps you open it one handed (hold knife, put thumb on that hole, and flick it open). instead of a sheath, I carry it in my left front pocket, with the clip over the rim of the pocket, and all the way to the outside of said pocket. the clip can be mounted on either end of either side, I arranged it as it is because I'm a leftie, and so that when I pull it out of my pocket, its oriented correctly for immediately opening.

When I was a small boy, there was a company which made a cheap pocket knife called Imperial. They apparently broke easily.
On two different occasions I was out playing in the dirt somewhere when I spied what I thought was a MARVELOUS treasure. What looked like an Imperial knife mostly buried in the dirt turned out to be a great disappointment. In both cases it turned out to be only the thin sheet metal side which had broken off and was discarded.
I still see one of those junk knives once in a while but I wouldn't pick it up even if the whole thing was there!
It was something like the one below, only it was still black.

Floyd that is a neat nife. we have a menards here they run them free every once in awhile I am a terrible knife loser. I have lost some nice ones so I quit buying them. the story of the guy who skins 300 coons a year floors me.

Red OíHearn

Hi Bob
There are tens of thousands of raccoons in Iowa. They are pursued by sportsmen of all types, primarily for the value of the fur but thereís also a ďmeatĒ market. A good friend of mine from SW Iowa is among the premier coon harvesters anywhere in the country. Heís also a beekeeper and one of the best motivational speakers Iíve heard. Iíll drive 500 miles to hear him speak and buy a couple quarts of honey to talk to him for 15 minutes. Raising 6 children all of whom are doing well and never having collected a paycheck in his life, Red is special to me. Red uses a $10 knife and wears out a few each year. If you want a peek into another world that most people donít know much about, google Red OíHearn. It will open your eyes.

well I live in mo we have coons plenty of them but he must be hunting them 24 hours a day. is he trapping or dog running? I must admit I have never eaten coons or possum but about everything else. I used to like squirrell brains until they said to stop.

I eat all the rest though I have never equaled my dad in shooting either he was a head shooter no matter where they were!

Trapping with a twenty four hour check. He ranges down into missouri with a non resident license. His wife is his partner. Have you ever read the Robert Ruark chapter on squirrel hunting in the Pecan grove from “The Old Man and The Boy? Pure poetry.
