I have never seen a porcupine anywhere in Ohio (even when I lived only two miles from the border with Pennsylvania). In Pennsylvania, I have encountered them while grouse hunting, as have, over the years, two of my bird dogs. Because of that, I always carry pliers with me when bird hunting in PA, MI, or MN.

Is it legal to just blast them on sight? Wife and I were at a rest stop once here in CO for a smoke and a snack, and got to observe one up real close to us. Very cool looking lil' critter, wish I'd had a camera with me.
