I do not understand why people think Ripley is a Dead Sea or woods. Populations go up and down winter controls deer numbers more than hunters. I like this new Ripley I have shot a deer the last 3 years there. The best part is not as many other hunters!! But the does not help get the deer moving.
Maybe, but the total kill and the kill of big bucks had been declining significantly before the tough winters hit. Look at the kill stats from the early 2000s on. Massive increase in doe harvest when bonus tags were allowed. That, combined with wolf predation and winter drove the herd down extremely low. IMVHO, you can't keep whacking the heck out of does when you have other very significant mortality factors at play.
On a positive note, talking to one of the environmental staff this past June, he said they had been seeing more big bucks this year. Hopefully one walks past me.
Good luck everyone!Edited by SmellEsox

Move slow, practice drawing and shooting from a seated postion, and have patience. You can shoot a deer from 11 ft up for sure.
Most of my stands are up 12-16 ft to platform. I don't like heights much.
Anyfish2 has good advice!

This isn't about other candidates. This is about Johnson looking stupid on TV, twice in close succession.
Both showed total ignorance of the world. And it's not just that he didn't recognize that Allepo had something to do with this thing going on in the middle east, or that he couldn't come up with the name of a foreign leader, but that he just sat there with a dumb look on his face and couldn't even think of something to say. Maybe "Hey, how about them hawkeyes" would have worked. (I'll post the joke if you haven't heard it)
Meh, like I said. His mistake was going into an open interview with questions that were never vetted and pre approved like traditionally happens and yeah, for that he and his campaign need to do better. Especially since he fell into it on the MSHRC network before. I agree 100% that he should either have been ready for something like this or made sure he knew what was coming before he agreed to do it. If course there is always the chance they agreed to the questions ahead of time and threw this in without him expecting it.
One way or the other he us taking questions that other candidates aren't and he is making himself available for questions that the other two aren't. This doesn't bother me at all. What I want to hear asked of the other candidates is how they are paying for what they are proposing and also if sending Americans to fight in the middle East is that important, are they willing to send their kids to do it.
