Title: Gut Pile Get Together?
Post by: Mad River on February 12, 2006, 12:17:15 AM
This is probably an odd though, but has anyone considered having a Gut Pile Get Together?  You know, have a big weekend meeting somewhere toward the middle of the country to shoot the bull, put faces with names, shoot skeet, fish, canoe, drink beer, dip snuff, beat on Morax, and all that good outdoor stuff?  Think about it...

John Andrews could bring knives to sell. O0
Lady-T could give a a taxidermy lesson. O0
Big58Cal could bring fried turtle. :twisted:
Gutpiles could bring the clothing line. O0
Stony could bring his deer scents. O0
Marlin could bring us hair care products. :twisted:
Mad River can be taxi driver with the minivan. :'(
Bearman can bring single malt scotch. O0
Morax can teach us how to sharpen sticks. :twisted:
Ks_Sniper can bring a book of Anti-PETA quotes. O0

We are getting close to 800 members, I am sure a few dozen would show up.  State wise, wouldn't Indiana or Missouri be about in the middle of country?

Call me crazy, but I think that would be kinda cool. O0

By the way, before anyone makes the suggestion, I am not a qualified event planner. :)

ROFL....sounds like a great idea...

It would be hard to get everyone together at the same time....and even harder to open up the 'pocket book' to afford the trip.

But man oh man....what fun would it be  :D

BTW-I vote for Oklahoma (i know it ain't exactly central...but well, ya know i got a bias opinion and all...LOL) ....come on down guys, Bring your tents.....we got all the hogs you can shoot-and all the bass/catfish you can catch! (and some of the cheapest licences around)

Sounds like a great time.If you want to come up to michigan ,can stay on my property.shoot untill your hearts content ,fish for muskey and walleye on black lake.I can take you out salmon fishing on the great lakes.walk through a close combat handgun course.Eat ,drink and in general make a nuisance of ourselves.

The shootin’/fishin’ options appeal to me.
Darn near every time these things are planned they fall in during the more favorable weather of the summer months and when the kids are out of school to boot.
This is when I gotta work, so I seldom make an appearance.

I have seen these done many times with other groups of common interest on line as well as back in the 70’s with some radio clubs I have been involved with.

The one’s that had the better attendance were held in areas such as national parks where controlling family members that had little interest in chewing the fat with hunter types and blasting beer cans with their .17’s could find alternative activities within the area… The park scene puts a hurtin’ to the shooting options which could be rather important to me, especially if a killer jacket with a embroidered Gutpile logo on the back was offered as a prize in a competitive event.(hint),  but some joint thinkin’ might produce a creative alternative……

    that'd be pretty awsome. but like lady T said, it would be hard to get everyone togetherat the same time.

That would be a riot! We could live trap a PETA sheeple and spray them down with some of Stony's doe in heat lure, and then turn them loose in the woods.  :twisted:  ;D ;D

Have her at my ranch in Alberta. I'll start rounding up the scotch early, so i got enough. Me and ol' Baretrax could show you boy's and girl's what the big north is all about.
You boys sure you won't need this old Indian show you how to really drink that hard stuff?  Notice, I didn't say "handle", I said, "drink". :D  ;D  ;D  ;D The loser has to drink a pint of Stony's deer scent.  :shock: :twisted: Worse yet, get hosed down with the stuff and have to run through the woods. :shock: :twisted:  ;D  ;D  ;D

It was either last year or the year before we talked about doing something like this.  As to be expected though, it kinda' fell through due to everyone being busy and not being able to really find a good place to have it.  At one point we all were going to converge on Gutpile's house and camp in his yard! :twisted:

I'd be up for trying to get together.  Maybe Ks_Sniper can come through with the planning and the place.  He's in Missouri now isn't he?  Mad River can pick everyone up in the mini-van!

Jeff I agree, the family would probably want other things to do.theres always 4 wheeling ,wave running on black lake, tubbing, swimming,paint gun fights for the kids and grown ups .always something to do in the great outdoors.canoe trips down the black river.

Bearman have not been to Alberta for twenty five years that sounds like a great trip.

Ya know, MOSPARKY, Big Papa, and I might just have to find someplace to have this here shindig. Last year, I just couldn't find anyplace that could house all of us and be willing to put up with the sight of Morax's minivan... :twisted: 'poke' 'poke'. Just kiddin there Morax... I had a minivan once, until my wife made me get rid of my hotwheels collection. :twisted:

I'll do a little research this next week and post a sticky on what I find.

You should have it in kansas it is the center of the country and great hunting and fishing.  We have a rabbit overpopulation 10's the bag limit.  Theres a lake and hunting land about 2 miles from my place.  Just making a suggestion.

We could always make it a semi-annual thing. I found the info for the guy in KS who has the severe tree rat problem on his pecan orchard. And remember, he's buddy-buddy with the local conservation officer and said he could get the depredation permits easily enough. We could do that one in early to mid August when the pecans get to that point where the squirrels go crazy over them. Hogs, on the other hand, would be best suited to MO, OK, or TX for the simple numbers of them. OK requires you to have a hunting liscense and permit for whatever season it may be, which could get expensive. MO has a statute in their regs stating that it is every hunters duty to massacre any feral hogs they see, and by whatever means necessary. Now TX, I don't know their regs, but perhaps longfisher could do some research for us.

Ks.....You sound like the man with the plan!!! O0  I nominate Ks_Sniper to coordinate this here shindig and "Git R Done"!  Do I hear any seconds on my montion????? :twisted:

eddiejohn4, your invite sounds really good, but three things come to mind.  1) You're a little far north for most of our Southern and SW folks; 2) There's not much to hunt in MI during the summer/early fall; 3) You ain't got no PORK up there, do ya????????? O0  Just kidding about the second 2 things, but the first is the main thing.  It wouldn't be that far for me (since I'm in KY), but a lot of the folk from AL, GA, and FL would have one heck of a trip, not to mention any people that are in TX or OK.  See what I'm saying?  We may still fall back on you if Ks_Sniper "panzies" out on us! ;D

I don't really want to go that far north (it's a North vs. South thing.....), but if I have to I will. :roll:  The only condition is that I have BEER! O0  And something to kill, even if it's cats (we can try the Indian John's Beer Roasted Cat recipe). O0

Yeah, Beer Roasted Cat! O0  O0  O0 I saw one for the pot a couple of days ago, but it's had too many vehicles run over it by now.  we would have to have Cat Pancakes if we use that one. They are easy to prepare, just light frying, then add  plenty of real butter and lots of syrup.  Or, you can trim to size and use a waffle iron.  :roll:  :twisted:  ;D  ;D  ;D

BC, have you told them about my Carp Cupcakes yet? Or the 'Possum Possible Pie?  I know you planned on bringing Squirrel Brain Jelly, but you head shot all those squirrels this last season.  O0
Title: Re: Gut Pile Get Together?
Post by: Ks_Sniper on February 15, 2006, 11:07:36 AM
I think I'll pass on the cat, for now. I am, however looking forward to carp and friiiiied turtle. So, if I make this happen, I will FULLY expect one indian elder and rough looking, slow moving (sorry BC, couldn't pass that one up. :wink: ) redneck to show up and provide us with some food of their specialty. O0

See ya there. ^-^

I think Im going to pass on the cat also.What month were you guys thinking about. Damm cat brain jelly hmmmmmm hmmmm that sure sounds good.lol and I thought I ate some strange things in the service.

Once we determine what we're gonna hunt, I'll post another poll about which months work out best for people. By the time we get this going, I'll have a few days of paid vacation accrued at the new job and will be able to get off whenever. O0

I was thinking of maybe we have a shoot off, say, 100 yards. That was until I realized BC would want to use fleas as targets. I realize I am already outclassed, so I will be contented to be the range master or the score keeper. I can see it now. While I am scoring BC's target, there is one tiny hole about an inch from the center of the bullseye, with tiny dark splatter all around the hole. You know what that would be. BC had to take one flea out of the air as it jumped.  :shock: Nope, I ain't gonna waste my ammo shooting against you rascals, I am already beat. Aspirins at 100 yards, OK. Fleas at 100 yards, no way!

How about cutting cards at 100? I've done this with a 50 cal ML at 25 yds and had a blast. We'll have to see if we can di that with our preferred shooters. :twisted:

That would be fun! Some of you crack shots would be bored, but some of us would have fun trying.  O0

Post by: Big58cal on February 17, 2006, 07:16:32 AM
John talks me up like I can actually shoot! :roll:  Dang, I'm starting to be a legend in my own mind! ;D  Don't let the "old Indian" fool you...........I think he could probably out shoot the VAST majority of us! :wink:

As far as the "rough looking, slow moving redneck" providing the turtle..........I kinda' ate it all. :-[ :'(  I had a really crappy day at work Monday and on the way home thought, "Boy, some fried turtle sounds really good."  Ended up eating almost 2 lbs of deboned turtle!  Not to fear though, I should be able to round a few up by the time the shindig develops. :wink:

I hope to meet our BC in person some day! I also have a really good turtle net I am saving for BC. BC will put it to good use, I know.  O0
