SU,

Dude am not trying to be mean or anything some people are def. Some dont got the time to go have "fun". Most men drive a mini van and go shoping for food. Some people buy there main meet and sides. Or thay buy sides and hunt there main meet. No matter a bird is a bird.

I am not much of a hunter my self. Am more of a dude who likes to shoot guns. Iv been hunting a few times i enjoyed it it would be funer if i had the nerv to pull triger. Am still scared of recoil every time i pull my 4-10.

But this site is made for talking about this kinda stuff. Not what you could get it for at IGA or walmart. These people here injoy hunting and fishing.





SEE YOU NEXT TIME GOT TO GO

Well me and the boy went out and walked the woods. We spotted a bunch of birds, but the brush is still really thick and we couldn't get a clean shot. I would have done better with a dog I think.

It was the first time hunting for him I'm glad I was able to take him out and spend time with him. That's all I really wanted to do. So not get any thing was ok with me. grin smiley

BD after we pull the docks in we'll head out. I'm sure we'll get some with the dog.

The boy got a good scare smile smiley We were driving down the road and one flew up right next to the car. Scared the c--p out of him. smile smiley smile smiley

River Rat--

you state, "It's not all about the money all the time look how much you get to walk around in the great outdoors !! besides chicken sux".

Well I agree it is not all about money..I simply was proving a point that when folks say they hunt "to eat" that is a self evident falsehood. They pay more to get less, or nothing, so it is not the reason at all.

I further agree with you that a person gets to walk around the woods...but it seems a rather moronic statement for you to make in the first place. No offense..it just seems stupid. I would venture to bet that I spend as many hours on the water and in the woods as any person this board...far more than most I am sure. I get to "spend time there", but a person there to kill a bird is also spending time there...but the time is being spent to kill a bird. If you are going to go kill the thing then at least be honest enough with yourself to admit it and quit trying to make your conscience feel better by deceiving yourself and others as to why you are really there.

You are not there to enjoy the walk. I am there to enjoy the walk and natures thrill. You are out walking to pop some caps and enjoy a kill. A very great difference my friend. A very great difference indeed.

I further agree with you that "chicken sux". That's why I am mostly all vegetarian. Please explain to me why you are out spending lots of time, energy, money, etc, to kill a bird that largely tastes like chicken if you do indeed believe that "chicken sux". Please do not give me that lame, "No..it doesn't taste like chicken. It is totally different". That is so lame. The best grouse you ever cook up is not that much better than the worst chicken. Neither are very good... it must be the thrill of the kill. That my friend is sick. You kill because you enjoy it! At least be honest about it.

Bobber Down,

Well did you blast some small birds with some 6 shot. Or are you an 8 shot guy?

You stated, "1. It does cost a lot of money $32.00 for the small game lic. Guns between $200 - $2000. Shells $5-$10.00 / box. You have a point, but it's not about the money to me, some people spend their money on surf boards and some spend theirs on hunting gear. To each their own".

Well it is certainly true that each of us spend our money on preferred pursuits. However, some of us spend our money on pursuits that don't mean another being has to die. You must have a kill for your pursuits to be successful.

You stated, "2. I like Grouse much better than chicken, and who knows how fresh the store bought chicken is? it could be a week old, or 6 months old, I like knowing how fresh my food is. The same goes for fresh fish it doesn't get any better than catching dinner 2 hours before dinner".

Excellent point. One of the main reason I do not eat meats. You can't know where the food supply has come from unless you raise your own. My family raises all our own vegetables and many fruits. We eat our own farm eggs laid by our own chickens..WHICH WE DO NOT KILL OR EAT! I will on rare occasions eat a small serving of fish. Normally ones I have caught that were hooked to badly to live if released. However, with wild birds you are not much better off. There are several diseases that are being spread through various bird species... grouse included. You take a very real health risk by ingesting them. If I didn't grow it in the ground myself, or know exactly where it grew at, then I am very unlikely to eat it if I can avoid doing so.

You also stated, "if you're ever interested I would love to take you hunting and show you what it's all about".

That is very decent of you to offer. Perhaps I may do that some day. Please understand..before I had my eyes opened a bit in this area I was a hunter as well. I have killed a good many quail, pheasants, ducks, squirrels, rabbits, a few geese and a couple of deer. I am a gun owner and target practice regularly. I own and shoot rifles, shotguns, and handguns on a regular basis. I think I would surprise you with my wingshooting ability and overall marksmanship. I often shoot skeet and trap and find it an enjoyable way to be outdoors. To your surprise you will also find me out target shooting with a bow and often taking it afield with me to shoot stumps and deadfalls during my hikes through the woods. I have no qualms about sport or target shooting.

To shoot for the purpose of killing when there is ZERO need or call for it makes it self evident that the purpose of the hunt is the kill. Otherwise you, and all hunters, would simply take a walk with a camera and take pictures or a bow and shoot stumps.

Be honest and truly think about that. Bobber Down, you seem a very reasonable and level headed guy..unlike this Rat person I answered above. He appears to be aptly named. I appreciate your enabling us to discuss this in a civil tone.

sorry, Surfs up, maybe this is the wrong discussion for you,
you hunted for deer was it about the killing for you? I call
myself a sportsman, which goes further then just Hunting and
fishing, you want to talk about cost, that is not what this is
about, if you want them to take away our right to hunt, call
congress, Deer account for almost 300 accidents a year in the
county I live in, COOK right up the shore from you, It's about
balance, Thats why there are rules that we have to follow, if
you don't like hunting that is fine, but your in the wrong part
state, there are people up here who survive and feed their
family by hunting(and picking up road kill)fishing and trapping,
it's a way of life, these people are tougher then you or I could
ever wish to be, and you brought up disease, you need to be more
careful being a vegetarian, do you want to talk about present or
past recalls and people dying from them, you do have the right to
your opinion, but in my eyes "Opinions are like #@&holes, everyone
has one!"

Geeze surfsup... If you don't like fishing or hunting, what are you doing hanging around a fishing site for. Go join Peta or something. At least you will be hanging around like minds.
