Big Game Hunting

Ive killed quite a few bears and 2 lions,the only thing that ever got a piece of me was a damned badger!I was 13 and out shooting my brand new .243 rem,we were headed down a dirt road lookin for coyotes and there he was,since had never killed one before my father gave me first shot and I connected with him first shot,in my excitement i went runnin out in the field to claim my prize....Big Mistake!Just as i slid to a stop in front of him he snapped out of his playin dead stance and came at me like a 20 pound grizzly,growlin and screamin,popin his jaw,I thought I was dead!He jumped at me and got ahold of my pant cuff as i turned empty handed and made a dash back to the truck,I kicked him of and took off like Carl Lewis,he chased me a good 50 yards and as i looked to my father hoping he was gonna finish him off he was standing there laughin his ass off!I made it to the fence and he turned back as i crossed it and headed for the truck,got my rifle and finished him off.Lesson learned,never gut shoot a badger and try to grab him without gun in hand!To this day my dad tells that story every chance he gets,he has killed grizzlys and cape buffalo and he swears he has never seen anyone as frightened in the field as i was that day.
