Porcupine

Has anyone developed a game bag to put your harvested porcupines in?

Re: Porcupine

I'm using a salvaged naval bouy. Kinda heavy but if you use a rope instead of the chain and take the light off the top you can get the weight down to about 200 lbs and the quills can't get thru.

Re: Porcupine

Unless you are going to carry then in a Kevlar bag wouldn't recommend putting them in any type of bag.

Dont worry lots have been shot around the state already from people running hounds to people small game hunting. I am sure a few were shot with bows also. How many actually came out of the woods is another discussion.

I hope everyone in the entire state of PA shoots everyone they see. Not one good thing comes from them.

Re: Porcupine

After you have to pin down a few pointers and setters and pull a mouthfull of quills.... you kinda learn to hate the little buggers.

Re: Porcupine

I had to take my setter to the vet on Tuesday night. He had 20 some quills in his mouth and nose. Not a good experience!

How many of you guys do that yourself and how, or should a Vet do the honors?

Sorry for the hijack.

P.S.

Once you do figure a way to get'em out of the woods, they would make a stylish hunting cap.

Re: Porcupine

Been stuffing mine head first into a section of tractor innnertube. Take a tube from a BIG machine if you plan on limiting out.

Re: Porcupine

I pulled quills from my lab once. It was horrible.
He had one in his tongue. It was like trying to pull elastic man's arm off.
