Even as I spun,a heavy body crashed into my side. I stumbled sideways and scrambled closer to a sage bush trunk. I'd gotten my bow in between my body and what ever it was that hit me. Whatever it was, was gone for now, having melted into the tall grass which sprung up beneath the mammoth sage.
I was shaken, but unscratched. The broadhead arrow that I had on the string earlier was gone and I hadn't shot it. I nocked another one.
To say I was spooked would be putting it mildly. My knees were doing dueling banjos and my breath came in fast, heavy,jerks.
A faint movement in the grass 15 yards away riveted my attention. Focusing my gaze on the spot, the outline of a huge jack rabbit slowly took shape. He was fully as large as a Labrador retreiver and he sat there just looking at me.
A red stain spread down across the gray tipped fur of his chest and the arrow I had had on my bowstring hung loosely from his neck.
Quick as thought I brought my heavy longbow to full draw and sent an arrow into the red spot on his chest.
Even quicker he launched himself across the space that separated us, springing from powefull hind legs, touching for an instant on his smaller front feet and springing again.
I dodged his last leap and avoided a thumping from his giant hind feet,with a lunge to the side. He scrambled a second or two in the loose snow which covered the icy crust. THUNK!! Another broadhead sliced through the chill night air and buried to the fletch between the jack's shoulder blades.
The jack's whole body language changed and he reared onto his hind legs and stretched fully erect. He was every foot as tall as I was!
Then he slumped slowly to the side. The razor edged blades had done their work and he was down.
I just stood there in disbelief for a long time, watching for any sign of movement. Finally I eased up beside him and slowly dropped to one knee in the snow by his side him and placed an ungloved hand in the deep fur of his back. I could feel the warmth of his body and touched the wet, warm blood that trickled from the arrow wounds to assure myself he was flesh and blood.
As a lazer bright sun crested the mountain range to the east I drug him to the old corrals and took his picture.
I was exausted and decided to walk on back to the bunk house for a rest and coffee. I'd tell Randall the story and get him to come back with me to get him.
By the time I convinced Randall I wasn't delirious from the cold it was late morning before we started our trudge over the white landscape to recover my trophy.
What we found was startling and spooky in it's own right. The prints of some kind of large tracked vehicle were everywhere and all sign of the incident had been disturbed, covered or churned up.
The feed bags that had been in the old barn were gone, as were the dead coyotes and my jack rabbit.

I've thought long and hard about that night ever since it happened and have no reasonable explanation. As close as I can guess, the bags had contained some kind of growth agent the Air Force was experimenting with and the rabbit had gotten into it. I can think of no other reason.

The following evening I grabbed my bow and headed back out there. I'd just crossed the fence behind the bunkhouse when I slipped on a patch of ice and dislocated my knee.
I drug myself back to the house and pounded on the door. I was in a lot of pain and screamed for Randall to help. I had him grab my ankle and pull on my leg as hard as he could. A lot like I've been doing to you all through this story.    :D
