Those early Parker engravers had wonderful imaginations!!

Gary has/had the "cow gun" and the "chicken thief gun" - Charlie has/had the "sailboat gun" and the "fisherman gun" - Dave Suponski showed us the "kick in the pants trapshooter gun" - then there was the early Lifter with a sloop towing a large fish with a frigate on the horizon...

There are just a lot of them and I have probably saved pictures of most of them. I love the engraving on Parkers of all periods!

First thing I thought of was the proverbial "flying turnips". Couldn't think of an adjective to use with "bear". Some of us refer to some of the "head up fox" or "head down fox" as "stoat". Maybe we could refer to these bear type images as "woodchucks"?

That's easy ,they were actually very common up here on the coast, before it came extinct from over hunting ,the delicious flesh was what got the earlier islanders throu the winters ...it's a cross between a wild baloney and salt water rabbit ...uncanny rendition,only possible through actually seeing one IMHO
