I'm glad you stopped by WWH!   When you're not a Realtree, you need to stop by here and make sure this crowd is in line!  

Good luck with the new bow.  We expect you to be a contributor in "Primitive Camp Talk" now!   It took me awhile to finally take the plunge with a bow, but I'm glad I did.  It's gets the old heart pumping even more than rifle hunting!  Lots of fun!   :D

ck, glad to see another "front-stuffer" on here.  Our bow season opened Sept. 6, but between working the weekends and having a hurt back, I haven't been able to go.  I'd rather made that big cloud of smoke though!!!!!! :D

I'm from western nc , where deer are spread pretty thin. Used to hunt around Tignal Ga, 'til the declining deer population and the local fuzz made it not fun anymore, Anyway I'd rather chase bunnies than deer . Thats all deer season is for me anyway, just killing time 'til all the hunters go home. Then the REAL hunting begins. Nothing like a pack of beagles and shotguns to make some noise, right guys?

Hey: How do you all feel about chatting with a old canadian? I'm tired of my close chat lines. I have a connection with the south as I used to be an outfitter. If I ain't welcome I understand and won't be offended.

Hi!  I'm from Alabama.  Been hunting about 12 years.  I bow-hunted as a kid, but now I shoot a Rem 270 mag (she's my baby  :wink: ).
That's about it.  C-ya'll!

I am from SE Iowa and pretty much just hunt with my .17 rimfire for squirrels and small game. I worked on the duck blind for a couple of weekends this fall, but mixed it with fishing, another passion. I used to hunt with a borrowed .58 frontloader for squirrel hunting, beleive it or not. ONLY headshots. My big game hunting is probably a thing of the past, so the squirrels have to take the blunt of my hunting, now. Propredator, where are you located? And Bearman, welcome! If I am not hunting, fishing, or knife making, I am at work.

Hello all. My name is dusty and I live for the outdoors. I love hunting /fishing and anything that gets me out of the rat race of city life. I hunt moose,deer and grouse. I may take up duck hunting again as well seeing as I have moved back to the area where I grew up. I fish for mainly walleye and speckle/brook trout. I look forwrd to exchanging stories and information with the rest of you.

Hello John Andrew and than you for the welcome.  And I agree with you about  the "better bunch of folks.  I find that people who are close to the outdoors  and pursue hunting and fishing opportunities, tend to be some of the most reliable and sensible people you can find. I live in Timmins Ontario, Canada. I just moved here a couple of years ago. It isn't what I would call exotic, but it fits the the requirments of hunting and fishing needs. I used to live in Northwestern Ontario, north of Kenora Ontario. It as well is far from exotic but man what a place for moose and walleye. You would be hard pressed to find any better place in the province when it comes to those two things right there. So tell me John, what is it like for hunting/fishing  in you neck of the woods.

Dusty, I have been in your old neck ot the woods, vacationing. Great country! Well, our hunting is pretty dull, compared to what you folks have. For anything else other than small game and deer, we have to travel out of state. Our waterfowl hunting was poor this year, but one of my sons was in Canada this last season and had a great waterfowl hunting week. About the only thing we have gained here are pretty good numbers of bobcats, but no season yet. Trappers take a few by accident here every year. All our counties have the cats now, and they are doing great.  A bobcat hide would look good on my wall, huh? The small game hunters here are almost extinct. More game for the few hunters! We have a lot of pheasant and quail, too. AND new world record size deer right here close to home! I may reconsider, and take up deer hunting again next season! How's your huntin'?
Title: new intros
Post by: dusty on January 11, 2004, 12:10:44 PM
Hi  JOhn.  The hunting is pretty good around here for small game. Mostly everybody hunts ruffed grouse and there are quite a few spruce grouse mixed in with them. There is also a small number of sharptail grouse with in a close proximity of the city, but they get more abundant the farther north and west you go I think. There are alot of snowshoe rabbits or varying hare as they are called that some people hunt. I don't shoot any of the rabbits as I think I ate way to many of them when I was a kid :lol:  There is the odd deer around here but not many but there is no hunting season in this part of Ontario. There is also some wood land caribou farther north of here but they are protected and are off limits to anybody but the First Nations people. There is an abundance of moose around here but the hunt is regulated through a lottery system. You can buy a hunting licence wich allows you to shoot calves anywhere in Ontario that there is an open season, but you can only shoot a bull or cow if you have been selected in the draw. The bull or cow tag is only valid in the wildlife management unit that you choose when you entered ie.. if you have a bull tag for area 31, you can only shoot a bull in area 31. You can only shoot calves in all the other areas. The problem is there are something in the neighborhood of 125000 applicants for some 16000 valid adult tags in all of Ont.  Depending on where you hunt, a hunter can draw a bull or a cow tag this year and it might be another 15 years before he gets another one. Fishing around here is pretty good. There is a multitude of lakes that offer anything from walleye to brooke trout. I haven't lived here long enough to sample many of the lakes but I will be doing so in the future. They have started an elk restoration program just south of here in the Sudbury area a few years ago. I hope that it is a successful as the wildturkey restoration program they did in southern Ont. a while back. The Turkey have done terrific and they have had a spring hunt for the past few years. All in all, there is plenty of opportunity for someone to enjoy the outdoors no matter what your preference and plenty of room to get secluded if you so desire. I have been hunting in places that if anything were to happen to me I would have probably never been found if they didn't know exactly where to look...providing anybody cared enough to look :lol:

Firekidd, welcome to the huntinest bunch you ever crossed trails with! Fishing ranks right up there NEAR the top, too. I'm glad to see you young folks come to the campfire here, and share the outdoors and lore. We aren't tipping too many cows here, but we have fun! :mrgreen:

What are you interested in knowing Firekidd?  I, as well as quite a few others on here, am a "plethora" of knowledge (useless knowledge that is)  :D !

Whenever you, or anyone else for that matter, has a question, don't be afraid to ask it.  Besides, if you ask, it makes us "old people" feel like we're worth something! :D  :D   We many not always know the answer, but there's enough people here that I'm sure that we'll find out one way or another! :mrgreen:

Welcome all! When is the stew ready John? ??? :shock: ;D
  O0 Pretty soon! I expect to collect at least a couple of fresh roadkills tonight to toss in the stew. we can call this batch, "Possum/Coon Delight". If I can round up a bobcat or something else exotic, we can always rename it to whatever you suggest. I bet Tnutz can offer some great suggestions.  :)

I was gonna toss in hawk, owl, and crow, but I feared it would throw off the perfect balance of the savory contents.
