A Couple of Jackalope Postcards . . .

The Western Jackalope

Among the rarest hunter's trophies is the timid Jackalope.  The nocturnal antlered, long-eared mammal has keen senses of both hearing and smell and is said to be attracted to alcohol.  To lure this fine, 4-point, male specimen within range of his camera the photographer used a blend of bourbon, beer, and baloney.

This postcard is postmarked in 2014 with another mythical animal stamp. . . .

Wild Jackalope
Often called the Antelabbit, this, the most amazing of all desert animals, is reputed to be a cross between a jackrabbit and an antelope.  Rumor has it that the Jackalope sings at night in a voice that sounds almost human.

This unused postcard is from 2008.
