    Bows? Bah humbug. Real hunters use an atlatl and dart.

    I hunt at the supermarket. It's easier to sneak up on the turkey there.

My wife took her first ever Deer with a Bow second week of this season, she is quite happy with it… he weighed in field dressed at 180 lbs, and is being scored as a 9 point because of some kickers on the antler bases. A couple of people have estimated the antler’s in the 135 range… so we are going to wait the required time and have them officially measured. 135 is right at the lower limit for entry into the Pope & Young record book. Even if the Deer doesn’t make P&Y, my wife is absolutely thrilled, and we are having the head done by a taxidermist. Our freezer is full, and he is a Deer of great taste...
    Very very nice. Congratulations. I bagged a buck - just freezer filler - with my muzzleloader this year. I still have to kill a deer with bow. Typically I end bow season with one shot/one miss

    To bring this back to the topic of the thread, the election results can be read as a landslide dismissal of hunting from the air.
    I am not talking about election night at all. My colleagues, life time news people, were not opportunistic. They were down right communists. Things I heard like: The government has to run the healthcare or Socialism would work just fine if the right people were doing it or Surely you are exaggerating when I mentioned Gulag and labor camps in the east block. In the news room there were two posters of Che Queavara in peoples cubicles. Now you tell me this is the way it should be? I think not. I lived in the crappy and dangerous and opresive system and generally you Americans have no idea what in your stupidity are you playing with and where you can land with it.

    I hear that nonsense too. I also hear nonsense that make the Libertarians seem left-wing.

    Posters of the terrorist Che are alas trendy, and they are usually sold to people who have no idea who he was. There are idiots everywhere, my friend. And in the US we allow them to practice their idiocy within certain broad limitations.

    My brother bow hunts because he figures the animals need a sporting chance... he has spent his life in the bush and works as a guide here in the fall.

    He is a amazing shot with a rifle and the animals don't have much of a chance when he has a bow...I figure that his next challenge will be to run them down on foot and use his bare hands or a Buck knife.



    His last bow kill was a bear that was getting too comfortable wandering around his place but I expect that he is pretty stoked for hunting season.

    This always means that my freezer gets topped up when he comes to visit and since he also fishes commercially there is also Perch, Whitefish, and Walleye.

    I hung up the bike this evening. Last week I finished my first year of ridding with a 25 miler… I was kind of proud.

    After the bike was in the rafters, I melted a few pounds of lead and hand-poured my .58cal bullets for this year’s deer season. I only hunt muzzleloader and I use an original (except for a 1960s replacement barrel) 1864 Springfield armory civil war musket. You could say, I’m kicking it ‘old school’.

    I have a Hatfield full stocked flintlock, but the weather would have to be just about perfect for me to try that.

    Can I say, I am jealous of your brother?

    Yes, that's easy to understand. But still, people will not hang a poster of Adolf - but they have no problme promoting the former USSR. And the only difference between those two countries is that USSR lasted longer, the regime was crueler and killed significantly more people.

    Oh, well, sorry to vent here, I am off the soap box now

    Well, I have to be honest, I’ve never had Photograph flavored chili… But, I must say the Venison chili I had a couple of hours ago, was absolutely delicious.

    In SI, you just go shot deer, no hunting to it! The damn things are thick as thiefs here.

    I didn't bow hunt this year. My old Matthews Feather Light finally gave way and I never got around to replacing it. I started biking! And I had to get my ankle fixed. I will bow hunt next year. The Princess's love to shot their bows and are ready to take out next year.

    I will get a couple with my muzzle loader and slug gun.

    BTW, does anyone ride a mnt bike to their stand or blind? I thouught about taking my favorite HardRock and camoing it up and setting up to carry my gear to the blind. I would only do it on private land. I might sound like a 300 pound 14 pointer coming over the hill to a city boy!

    I'll be needing that for squirels and such....

    I am bow hunter also. My favorite sport. I am lucky that I live in the west and get to hunt elk every year, without having to draw a tag.

    I've wanted to get into bowhunting for a while, but I'm afraid my rifles would get lonely...

    Atlatls are legal for hunting non-game animals and hogs in TX, but not deer unfortunately.
