Here is a cane I just finished. Maybe it will find a home with a Hog fan or a hog hunter! I did a clay model of the head for another carving and liked it enough to want to use it as a cane. It’s kind of a mixture of an Arkansas Razorback with a little feral pig thrown in. I tried to shape the handle similar to a pig’s body, including the curly tail on the end. Thanks for looking! let’s see if I can rotate the pictures correctly down here!

Very neat!

Now you hide the single shot 410 shotgun in the stalk and make the tail the trigger! Then it is a great hog helper.
