a tight little circle, discussing
amongst themselves where to go
I heard one of them sputtering, “We want to be careful, that
*#* - damned John Ford could
come along at about anytime
now, and give us his usual ration
of sh--!”
His smart comment initiated
a few more wise snippets from
the group, none of them worthy
of print.
It was show and tell time, as
suddenly the gang realized there
were two more bodies in their
midst than what there were when
they started.
“Good morning, Gentlemen,” I boldly stated. “I believe
your a little too late, John is already here,” I announced. It was a
mini-Superman moment of sorts,
as I peeled off my hat and jacket,
proudly displaying the wardens
Norman was stripping down
to his uniform at the same time, as
he sauntered over from the other
side of the roadway.
Needless to say, there were
eight very somber faces, and eight
court tickets later, we jumped back
into the Jeep headed for another
deer drive in the making.
Norman and I had again sent
a message to this defiant crew.
A message that deer drives were
illegal, and that they could be
in¿ltrated by the woods-cops, just
as easily as not.
Still, some lessons are
learned the hard way. Before my
career ended, I ran across the same
old gang again and again, doing as
they had always done before.
Old habits were obviously
hard to break – and I’m not sure
in this case that they ever were
broken. But through it all, the “catand-mouse” game was fun to play.
It was more rewarding however, when for once, the mouse
caught the cat for a change!
