I don't hunt. "Hunting" implies there's an element of chance involved.

I go killing.

I hunt Buck(whitetail deer), black bear and turkey mainly. I usually just hunt deer in PA, since I have to hunt on public land up here. When I go back to West Virginia, I can hunt on my own 600 acres or so and have a better chance at seeing a bear when it is in season.

Some of my best times hunting involved watching a beaver build a dam, and watching does lead her fawns through the woods carefully. I had a doe come up on me and my father once. She stood about 5 feet from us, we were leaning up against a tree sitting down. She could smell us but not see us, as we were not moving. She made all sort of up and down moves with her head trying to figure out what we were. She snorted and popped her tail and sprinted down the hill side.

Interesting. How many of those species were introduced to Ozland?

All of them! There are no native hoofed animals in Australia, basically that is part of the problem. The ecology has evolved without hoofed animals and they now do plenty of damage to what is in reality a fragile landscape.

Hunting is a big part of my families lives. We hunt white tail deer, hog, bear, and some wing shooting. We get into the woods all year long...suffer with the ticks and chiggers in the summer to pattern the deer and then when fall comes we enjoy the hunting. We also raise dogs for hunting bear and hog. Working with the dogs is very enjoyable to me and I spend a lot of time doing it. I also really like bear meat...best steaks I have ever had. We have spent a lot of good quality family time in the woods together!!

I can confirm the laughing for hours, finishing with a dark depression. Back to normal the next day.

think this fungus was hunted somewhere by the East River.

Would only condone it if I was staving and had to eat it .... Realise all the issues of slaughter houses and big supermarket chains etc etc etc ...

however for me cant see the thrill in hunting other than for survival... then its OK...

The " where do you get your meat from? " argument is a whole other can of worms...


this is interesting... my favorite gun


not my FIRST gun but my favorite. The first was too big for me, 20 gague shotgun / 22 rifle over under. So my father and I stopped in a small rural town and exchanged it for this one, a 410 folding shotgun, 37 inches extended, 22 folded up, bored for 3" shells. You just had to be fast to hit anything. Can't believe I've had it for almost 50 years (wtf!)

can't find any links but I read about copper and silver fiber clothing(socks,underwear) that arrest bacteria. It makes it so we humans don't smell so much, allowing not to be so easily detected by everything in the woods.
