    Taking a Tusker pic and got photobomed by a Texas 9-banded armadillo. Good for him we were already cooking dinner

    I remember those suckers from when I was a kid in New Orleans. They are kinda slow and thus roadkill magnets.

    Are they edible, with the Leprosy and all? If so is it good eating?

    I'd say they're more gamey than raccoon but less so than pole cat.

    Awesome! Tuskers were made to be used and it certainly looks like this one found a good home!

    I needed a good knife to carry. My son is about to get 2nd class and I promised him my Randall 18 if he made it to first class. I've had that knife since I was 19 in the 90's. He might take the tusker though I think once I mold the spec Ops sheath that it will be lighter and one helluva backpack camping knife. Then I get to order another!

    I've carried that Randall everwhere and he's been deer hunting with me since he was 5 so he knows what it means to me. I think the tusker would serve him better though I don't want to give it up!

    Quite a few of my 5" Tuskers have been and still are carried by serviceman. Whatever choice you make will be a good one.
