Raven Elk will allow the sow to charge, holding his spear at the ready, his body in a defensive/evasive position (like a Matador), to have the pig impale itself upon the spear's point.

Before helping to clean and dress the fresh pork, Taylar looks over the sows to see if any of their tusks or teeth are worth taking...
Vittero laughs aloud.Kwargrow said:"How big should we claim these pigs are when we tell this story? I'm going to say mine was as long as I am tall and so wide I could not get my arms around it."
Vittero responds.Waynan said:"Let's be quick about it, my friend. I fear the scent of blood will attract more than we would wish to deal with."
Vittero said:"...We may be able to sell them to the Master Hunter, and they are tougher than sheepskin."
"Let's be quick about it, my friend. I fear the scent of blood will attract more than we would wish to deal with."
Raven elk, still keeping an eye out on the perimeter, says:
"Let's not forget our original reason for being out here. Ma would not be happy. And the bug situation would not be addressed."
Vittero, who is almost always jovial, laughs again.Waynan said:Raven Elk then quickly looks to Maka and Taylar and adds: "We may think ourselves as rebels and freebooters; but we have never dishonored ourselves, nor have we have ever not followed through on a promise."
Vittero roars, laughing.Kwargrow said:Still smiling, Taylar looks around before excitedly asking Raven Elk,
"What do you think will show up? Maybe something I wouldn't have to exaggerate to get a good story out of, huh?"
Vittero looks over at him, recovering from his momentary shock at his own talent and sticks out his tongue.Kwargrow said:Taylar helps with moving the guts and smoking the meat. While they wait for the meat to cure he takes a few swings with his two handed club.
"I feel like I can make this thing more dangerous. Maybe I'll add a big hammer head on the end of it. Won't take two knocks to finish a pig then."
Raven Elk said:"...He wondered if his friends, close as they were, ever really made note of his subtle refusal to eat the flesh of hogs. He knew Ma would never tell; but, he wondered all the same."
"... We could stay out here awhile longer afterwards, and enjoy a little pig hunting."
Maka -Waynan said:Raven Elk hopes that none of them take too much note of his not getting in on the gutting, skinning and cleaning of the sows. He never liked pigs or the meat from them.
Taylar says,Tellerian hawke said:"Every kill cannot be an Elk, my brother. You should eat. The sow meat is a gift, and we should not refuse it." Maka smiles, ribbing Raven Elk a little, in a good-natured way.
Vittero bobbles his head back and forth once.Kwargrow said:"I knew a man that died from eating uncooked pork. When I asked my father about it, he said you have to cook the pig well enough so that it does not come back to life while it is inside you and tear your intestines out. Any meat that is that dangerous should give me plenty of strength."
Vittero laughs.Kwargrow said:"I wonder if we could find something to ride out here. That would make these trips less tedious."
