OK, Where did your handle come from?

 My creative wife bought me the personalized license plates years ago that said "Whoadog" since she would hear me telling dogs that during training (she was my assistant before my daughter stepped in).



Well, besides the fact that I like to hunt porkers, my last name is Hodgson. I've heard all the wisecracks and Hogskin just sort of stuck with some dirt biking buddies of mine.

Mine came about when my buddies and our work friends started to caravan all over So Cal and the high desert to fish, and hunt rabbits, quail, and deer in the early 80's.  CB radios were all the rage then, even in downtown L.A., so everybody had one.  One of the ladies in our fishing/hunting group had the CB handle of Cottontail, and then I got dubbed with the handle of Jackrabbit -- kept it ever since.

Well .......ummm......mine kinda evolved , then one day I was needin a handle to get into one of these web sites.   So Bigolwiggler it was.

I used to work with this guy named Harry Waggler. Me and my huntin buddy always thought it was kind of a humorous name.  

We began callin him Harry Wiggler  between ourselves ( terrible werent we *S* )

Then we said , hey that sounds like a good name for a fishin lure , the "hairy-wiggler"  And for the really big bass it would naturally have to be called the    "Big-Ol-hairy-wiggler" .   We sure got a kick out of ourselves with all that sillyness.

So any way I signed into a web site , needed a handle and thats what popped into my mind........


You asked for it !

Well back a few hunderd years ago I guided for a local hunting lodge, coyotes started to be a problem with the walking stock. The owner wanted someone to control coyotes, when I was not guiding clients on hunts I tried my hand at coyotes. After a few kills the head guide  started calling me coyote hunter and it stuck. I decided to use coyotehunter_1  when I started using the www.
