Title: kill a dove with a rock
Post by: squirrelbrains91 on January 08, 2005, 12:21:27 PM
this is about as primitive as it gets I guess. When I was about 10 there were lots of doves were I lived at that time and I was out side playing without my bb gun then a HUGE dove flew onto a post in my backyard so I picked up a large rock and threw it BOOM the bird basicly exploded feathers evrywhere.

try it sometime

I've killed a couple of rabbits with rocks, but never a dove. Good shot! You need an agent!

i once beat a raccoon with a stick to death.
i also beat a snapping turtle to death with a stick. i was just walking thru the woods when i spotted this medium sized coon it wasnt the biggest thing youve ever seen but i chased it and it started to climb a tree so i grabed its tail and thru it to the ground pick up a stick and started hittin him over the head but it was nothin really.
the turtle had just came out of my pond and i decided that i was going to kill it so i grabbed its tail and drug it far away from the pond so it could not escape. then i went and found a stick well i then beat it over the head till there was no head.
one day i got really pist and went and checked my traps with just my knife and ended up killin a oppusom with it that was crazy.

Mallard Drake, unless you're going to eat it, or use the animal in some way, DON'T KILL IT! [-X   What was your purpose in killing the coon or the turtle?  What were they hurting?  I think everyone on here knows that I'm not a "bleeding heart Liberal" or a "bunny hugger", but when I choose to take somethings life, you can bet I've got a good reason for it.  Most critters are for meat, some for fur, others are pests (rats, mice), still others are done to take unnatural predators out of the environment to protect small game (i.e. cats).

Please tell me I'm off base on this and that you didn't kill those critters just for the heck of it. :?:

I killed a whitetail deer once with my bare hands.That was not a fun experience.Ill never forget that. Got hit by a truck and all its legs were broken and I could feel its ribs were destroyed.I broke its neck to end its misery.Thats a very personal kind of killing that makes you appreciate animal life.Its a lot different than shooting one at 100 yards.Im also no liberal tree hugger,but I do value life.I was a little shook up about that deer for a few hours.It wasnt nice hearing the neck snap and seeing the eyes do weird things,but it did the trick quickly and it was more humane than leaving it there.To be honest,I dont like the label "sportsman".I dont kill animals for sport.

We're not trying to give you a hard time, but you've got to understand that God put all these critters on Earth for a reason.  Since humans are the dominant predator, you've got to understand that all predators kill for a purpose.  Sometimes it's to protect their young or their nesting/breeding grounds or to guard their territory.  Most of the time it's for food.

Taking another life is serious business and shouldn't be taken lightly.  If you think about it, you've just killed something that was living and breathing just a few seconds before.  You've taken a life.  To honor that, you should utilize the animal in some way.  Every time I go hunting, I thank the Lord for all the critters that I get.  He's provided for me, so that I may feed myself and my family.  In the case of cats though, they are an unnatural predator.  Left alone, they will decimate small game and bird populations.  If you doubt me, do some research on Australia.  Aussie Joe (a guy that used to be on here, and still is from time to time) lives in Australia.  He and I swapped hunting magazines with each other so that we could see how people in other countries hunt and what.  On the cover of one of the magazines he sent me was a picture of a cat on top of a telephone pole raiding a bird nest.  The story inside did everything but BEG people to kill every cat they see because of the environmental damage they're causing.

The point to all of this is to have a REASON for killing something.  Unless you've got a good reason, then leave it alone.  It's not hurting anything and was put here for a purpose.

Dixie, that had to have sucked. I never had to end one's suffering with my hands, but have had to knife (cut throat) a few that were hit by cars. Once even was brought a (miraculosy full term) fawn to rehab that someone had to cut from the womb of a hit ( dying) doe. It'll mess with you, that's for sure.

Now, to get in the spirit of the thread.......

doves with rocks? Can happen. I know of fellers that hunt squirrels with slingshots.

Myself...the only outlandish thing I like to do is when I get a lot of armadillos that become a problem, I hunt them. Kinda. I stalk em, downwind, get in behind em, and grab them by the tail, yank em up and hold em at arm's length, then put em in a cage to take em elsewhere. That is all kinds of fun!! :-P

April, do you know that the armadillo is the only animal that carries leprosy? Not all do, but some do.  You can contract the desease by handling the animal.  :sad:Yuk! It's now curable, but it ain't nice stuff to get! I used to see a lot of them while I lived in Texas and knew of the leprosy, so I wasn't tempted to pick one up.
Title: Re: kill a dove with a rock
Post by: april on January 28, 2005, 01:56:01 PM
Didn't know they carried that, but do know they are big bad disease bags. I don't handle without my "welding gloves". They never ever touch me and I don't them.  Hmm....makes one kinda reconsider. Thanks for the heads up. :mrgreen:..I've beeen careful regardless simply because of they are so icky....maybe now I'll give it up completely. :'(

I didn't know about the leprosy things either.  :shock:  When I was installing sattelite systems, I'd see a lot of roadkill. After telling my wife about it, she wanted me to find a live one and bring it home. Guess that won't be happening. ;)

This is a while back in this fourum.(January) I can side with MOSPARKY about killing a deer at point blank. I was returning from the shooting range before deer season started..I had my .22 and 30-06 with me,and I saw a guy and his family on the side of the road.The front end of his car was real banged up,turns out he hit a deer.His little girl was crying and the worst thing was I had to kill it in front of his little girl.Its legs were broken,its jaw was hanging,and it was bleeding real bad.I took my .22 and shot it in the head.Saddest thing I ever had to do.I was ready to cry.Its different to kill a deer at 6 inches then 100some yards.especially when right before you pull the trigger,it looks at you as if to say:"Do it,you have to".Then the gun goes off and it drops its head and its over.I damn near cried.Saddest thing I ever had to do.I hope its the last.And the guys wife and kid,they cried for 20 minutes until the game warden showed up.I never want to do that again. :'( :'( :'(

yep.......I can relate to that huntsman.I think its good to experience that once though........you wont soon forget it.Have to respect life.

Post by: Squirrelhunter91 on February 12, 2005, 09:09:31 PM
I hope I never have to do something like that. But if I have to, I will. I have shot many animals upclose after wounding them. Felt really bad putting the barrel behind the ear and squeezing it off, its not good. Gotta respect life is right Dixie.
Title: Re: kill a dove with a rock
Post by: travo on February 13, 2005, 09:07:41 PM
that is one of the things that really sets bowhunting apart. it is so up close and personal, you really think before releasing the arrow. its not like a 200 yard shot where you are just shootin at a dot; its not like playing a video game through your scope. it is more "real" if you have never bowhunted, try it and see what i mean
Title: Re: kill a dove with a rock
Post by: huntsman on February 14, 2005, 12:44:55 PM
i get what you're saying Travo,but hunting with a bow and killing a deer at 20-25 yard,I think anyway,is alot easier then putting a gun to a deers head and hesitating on the trigger pull.I think its different,but I have never bow hunted,so I may be wrong.But with a bow,no blood is on the bow,with my instence,my barrel had blood on the front,it that was REALLY wierd to see,and when you are THAT close to the animal,it hurts after the report of the gun,and its life ends in an instant.But for some some reason,before you pull the trigger,that animal gives you a look like;"I'm sorry you need to do this,but just do it,please." Thats what it felt like to me.As Dixie said."You Have to respect life"

Post by: MOSPARKY on February 25, 2005, 08:39:47 PM
Huntsman, I think you were agreeing with Dixiebanjo,I haven't posted in this thread before.But I do agree.It's an odd mixture of emotions,kinda like putting a beloved pet down.It's gotta be done,you know how it will end if you don't,you wish you weren't the one that's gotta do it,the critter is helpless to stop you,you know it's for the best and you are doing it a favor but you wish it hadn't come to this.So you step up to the plate and do whats gotta be done,you're glad it's over,you're glad the suffering is gone,you still wish someone did it for you,you know your world is changed forever,and the rest of the world is somehow deminished and you quitely console yourself in it had to be done.

I was at my friends house when we heard the cat under their car making strange vocalizations. My initial thought was it had a hairball, but we soon noticed the pool of antifreeze, and it had been lapping at it. If you know anything about anitfreeze, you don't want to see what happens when it's ingested. My friend's father had to kill it with a sledge hammer to the head. This kind of thing stays on your mind for some time, but even at the age of 10 I knew it was the only thing to do. All said and done it was a quick death, the cat would have ensumed in terrifying hallucinations and even worse, but they acted quickly.

That story reminds me of a guy I work with. As he was coming to work one morning, a cat that had hitched a ride on his engine, decided to bail out. When my buddy heard the thump, he immediately pulled over, and sure enough the fan had broken the cat down. Well he couldn't leave it like that, so he looked around and found a brick and commenced the assault. Well you all know how tough a cat can be. This kitty was really carrying on and making some really horrible sounds. As my friend was trying feverishly to get the dirty work over with, a woman came out of her house and really raked him over the coals for his "heartless cruelty".  The next thing out of his mouth probably wasn't the smartest thing to say, but it was what was on his mind at the time. He told her, "It's my damn cat!!" ;D

Ellwood, I can relate to the cat and brick. We had a stray cat get into our trash almost every night. Back then, I got off work at 3 AM, getting home about 3:45. I would spot the cat about the time he was beating a retreat. One morning I spotted him before he spotted me, and grabbed and pulled out one of the bricks that lined the edge of our sidewalk. About the time the cat came rocketing out of the trash, I let fly with the brick.  It connected with the cat's middle, slowing him down enough for me to retreive the brick and finish the job. It was a real job to finish the deed, but a brick is a brick and a cat is a cat, know what I mean? :twisted: O0

you guys make me feel bad.my parents own labs.they did some breeding and kept all the pups.my step dad and brother duck hunted seriously for awhile. well when it came time to cull the unworthy i was the one to do it.it never botherd me. my neighbors mom, who is 87, is a huge humaniac.she puts out bags of cat food for the strays.well the guy around the block was beaten when he was a kid and has brain damage pretty bad.he has a buttload of cats.well i have 2 dogs.a doberman and a pit bull terrier.the dobe barks uncontrolably at these cats and the bulldog just whines...almost like he is dying.well the neighbors complain about the barking.i told them its the cats.one morning after work i go back out about 20min after i got home start the truck and under the hood sounds like war.i get out thinking my truck just died, open the hood to see my fan  bent which caused it to cut the radiator and chop the cat up.imagine working 12 hours just to get off and buy a new fan, and radiator,install them  AND spend about 15$ at the car wash getting the motor etc etc clean.i call animal control(i live in a small town) we have 1 ac officer.this guy is friends with the family and wont come out. i called the police and they said i cant do anything to the cats and assure me ac will come out...to no avail the cats were still around.the dobe if off lead will run to the next state. the bulldog on the other hand is content with staying with me.well i took him out and just let him go.after doing this 3 times and 3 kills  the cats seem to not make themselves seen. the bad part is the lady thought  someone was stealing the cats  ;D ;D  i finally had to tell her the dog got loose and got 1 and the rest must be scared or something  ;D

Well, let me throw in my cat story.  Last summer this stray that was wandering the neighborhood, got hit by a car.  The car just crushed the cat's pelvis and such, so it was still alive and pulling itself around by the front paws.  The cat ends up laying down under a bush about four houses down from mine.  So, the homeowner flags me down and tells me about the cat.  Within five minutes, there is a group of seven or so.  Nobody knows what to do.  I considered volunteering to shoot it, but you are not allowed to discharge a firearm withing the city limits.  So, I offer to off it with my re-curve bow and a broadhead.  Well this tree hugging, liberal, Peta member has a cow, calls me everyname under the sun, and says that would be cruel.  Just so happens a city cop was going by and someone flagged him down.  The cop said no guns, no arrows, no bricks, etc.  He announced that anyone who killed the cat would be cited for animal cruelty.  (Go Figure)  He called the city pound to come and retrieve the cat.  This all took place around 3:00 in the afternoon, by the way.  Angered, I went home and forgot about it.  I see the homeowner the next day, who tells me that the cat cried through out the night into the wee hours of the morning, and finally died about twenty minutes before the city pound truck showed up.  Yeah, like I am the cruel one.

Here's one for you: My cousin, who was a local part time BarneyFife, was in a local watering hole telling one of his on-duty stories. Seems he got a call with the location of a run-over dog. When he got there the dog was a pitiful sight. It was late, no one was around and he decided to finish it with his service revolver. Later that night he got another call of a wounded dog at the same location. Assuming it was a duplicate report, he radioed back that it was already taken care of. About an hour later he got yet another wounded animal dispatch, only this time at another location. When he got there he discovered this dog not only had a tangle with a car, but also had a gunshot wound :shock: This time he did a head shot.  As he was telling this story in the bar, he mentioned that he must have woke up everyone on "blank" street.  At this time a woman at another table turned to him and said "So you're the SOB who did that", "That was Bisquit!!!!" ;D ;D ;D ;D

If the Barney Fife had enough sense to shoot the dog in the head, it would have saved everyone a lot of trouble. I watched a cop do the same thing while he was on duty with my dad. Dad's partner was a jerk and knucklehead, AND stupid. Dad's partner shot the dog several times through its ribs before my dad told him, "You d-mn fool, shoot him in the HEAD"!  I happened to be walking home from school when I witnessed the deed, and my dad was really mad at his partner. They couldn't pick and choose who they rode with, unfortunately.

Big 58 cal that was well put, unless you are going to ultilize the animal dont kill it. All animals deserve our respect. I have never enjoyed the kill only the outcome (eating the meat). I have seen slobs shoot at frogs ,butterflies and anything else that moves, how sad not to have any common sense.
