How do you spend your hunting season?

4 posts in this topic

Is it run and gun or do you all enjoy a more heritage style?

Part of it to me should be teaching others quality hunting. I took my wife who is a non hunter with me once. We both had a great time. She was scarred out of her wits though...LOL

Being that I tree stand hunt we opted to find a downed pine. From there, every little sound[especially those red squirrels] had her moving her head around like a deer showing it's alertness...LOL

I really get a kick out of those times and that to me is very worth my time hunting.

Good luck as the season aproaches {yes, 3 months till bow opener, early goose and dove!!!} be a good person and try to think about whom you could enjoy your hunt with. As with all sports It's in sharing. And we should never expect anyone to be like ourselves, as we are all individual.

Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine..Now go get started!

Get re-aquainted with your guns and bows atlatels and slingshots.

And take someone with.

I dont push myself like I used to I prefer to hunt in a relaxed state of mind an take it all in. My son has Aspergers syndrom an likes to ice fish but dosent want to hunt so I only push him as far as just coming out a sitting with me once in a while, he dosent want to kill anything, I started to take his best freind with last year on early season doe an he took his first deer, this year I might graduate him to regular firearms season, an build a blind big enough to fit three so we can all go, if my son sees his freind do it then he might get the calling if not, thats just the way he rolls.

I brought my wife out deer hunting for the first time five years ago. We bought a two man deer stand so I could sit with her. I remember it being 10 below that opener but she was a trooper, and she ended up shooting a spike. That spike was the biggest trophy I ever seen, if you know what I mean.

She has not missed a season sense.

I also bring my nephew out but he is yet to close the deal. I am teaching him how to skin, quarter, and debone a deer after you shoot it. With the warm temps the last few openers I do this the day I shoot them. I am also showing him how to make sausage. I feel these skills may end up lost with so many people opting to bring them in for processing. I feel if he hunts as an adult and brings them in at least he knows how its done.

I don't hunt near as hard as I use to but I still hunt many days in the fall. My mornings are for me and I drink coffe and maybe once in 5 days I will hunt for a few hours. Now, the evenings are that special time for me bow hunting when I hunt pretty hard.

Seems I shoot just as many deer as before but I don't put near the pressure on myself any longer.

It's all for fun and maybe a big one.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
