Could Pot Roast turn to Butt Roast?
A Kat Ivor Combo Production

It's in 1964, and your family lives in a rural area of Oklahoma. Your oldest boy, Shaun, is fourteen. You've taken him hunting with you since he was eight years old. Your family is not well off; you hunt out of necessity and not for sport.

Today you get a visit from Shep Vickers, who owns a large spread of land a few miles from yours. Relations between you and him are not friendly. He has Shaun with him. His complaint is that he caught Shaun hunting on his posted property. He tells you that he is willing to let you handle the matter, but if it happens again, he'll go to the authorities.

What is going to happen to Shaun?

As Andy might have said to Opie... "that boy's got to get a whippin'"
and so he will... it's pants down for the strap for him!

Can you dig it?

I hate to have agree but Shawn has to learn to respect the property laws so his butt gonna get a roasting.  (I'll assume that the scenario correctly implies that even though he is a minor he can get into legal trouble.)

Of course, if it's a school day, then it would be double trouble.

Finally, he has shown that he needs to sharpen his hunting skills as he was turned from hunter to huntee.  Perhaps also learn about hunting season and more.

I think that would have been said ABOUT rather than TO Opie.



Shaun is probably in for a lickin', but before making a decision I want to discuss the circumstances of this incident with him. Taking into account that Shaun obviously knows the area very well and he has enough experience hunting with me to know that you must not hunt inside posted property, I find it unlikely that he did this out of carelessness or ignorance, but at least I'll listen to what he has to say.

Whatever the outcome, I want to be satisfied that Shaun understands he is not to enter this neighbor's property again.

Staying with the consensus.

Cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.


Assuming Shaun knows he's not supposed to be hunting on private property without the owner's permission, and at 14 and handling a firearm without adult supervision, I think that's a safe assumption, I, too, will agree with the consensus.


He done it.

Next stop the woodshed.


I'm gonna whup that boy for gettin' caught. I told him not to hunt there while that old sourpuss is around. The boy's gonna sour our easy takins....

Oh, wait. Sorry. I mean he's getting a taste of the strap, he knows he's not supposed to hunt there.

He's been hunting something to put in our pot for dinner tonight - not exactly to order, but I've known and not discouraged him in the past - it's a real struggle to feed the family.

He's in trouble - yes, for being caught and I'll promise that I'll be leathering him for it. It looks as though I'm going to have to try to train his younger brother now into the tricks of the trade since I don't want Shaun caught again - at least, not on that property. He'll have to switch his poaching to a bit further afield and learn to take extra care. I'll have to see if I can get a silencer for that gun.

Well, if Shaun were hunting in Morocco he would have the excuse of confusing signs:

Hunting Reserve:  No Hunting![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

But as he's in Oklahoma I'm going to whack him!


If Shaun knows he shouldn't have been there he's getting strapped. Whatever the beef between us and the owner he returned Shaun and left to deal with the matter without asking for voyeurs rights and he didn't call the police so he cant be all bad
