Title: new here, from illinois
Post by: jeepster on October 14, 2008, 11:06:22 AM
hello everyone, i just registered yesterday, then went on to hi-jack double barrel's thread, sorry 'bout that double!... anyway, i'm a carpenter in no. illinois, currently very slow at work, so plenty of time on my hands, more time to hunt ,i guess... looking forward to hearing some good hunting stories, and the bad ones ,too!.... anyway, i've been bowhunting(my only hunting method) for about 15 yrs. or so, i guess i average about 2 a yr. , got 2 "decent" ones on the wall, score maybe 130-140, still trophies in my book, i guess my main priority is getting meat in the freezer!.... so, good luck this year, and be safe!

Glad to have you around jeepster (even if you do bowhunt only).  ;D  We'll try not to hold that against you. O0

Jump in and tell us some lies stories.  Watch out for the old Indian! :shock:  Don't trust him if he offers you something to eat, and only believe about 1/4 of what he tells you. :idiot2

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

  :roll: Don't believe nothin that rascal BC says!   And I was gonna adopt him into the tribe, too!  :roll: Ever since BC claims he got serious food poisoning from the camp kettle, (claims his stomach isn't right yet) he says he can't even look at stew again. :wink: :roll:
Welcome to the gang, jeepster!
Nother thing, we all know we old Injuns always tell the truth. Just ask Tonto or the Lone Ranger.

Good ol' BC used to shoot competition bow, knows his stuff about bows and guns. He's a pertty good fella, to tell ya the truth. He just has a weak stomach when it come to some camp vittles.  :roll:
I haven't heard him complain about my famous Beer Roasted Cat or Armidillo On The Halfshell, though.
Y'all just make yourself comfortable with the gang, jeepster.  I gotta go stir the stew.

It basically all stems from him getting to ride around through a petting zoo in a Govt.-owned vehicle and "shop" for what he wants for dinner. :roll:  When he sees something he likes, he floors it! ;D ;D

I've got a very strong stomach when it comes most things.  The two exceptions are certain types of baby poop and John's cooking, both being relatively equal.

:roll: I'm still trying to think of a retort to those accusations.  :roll:  ;D

I remember what one of my Captains told me when I hit (another) turkey with my patrol vehicle. "You SOB, you drive around with your mouth watering"!  ;D Ain't true, dumb turkeys and other edible critters just jump out of the weeds and ditches right smack dab in front of my vehicle.  :roll:

I even got Tboned by deer on two occasins. One doe's head came through the driver's door window and the flying glass cut my face. I happily shot both of the offending suicide attacking Tbone deer.  :twisted: You really gotta watch out for those suicide attack deer that usually attack during real dark hard raining nights.  :shock: :twisted:

:shock: I've see other deer hit at that speed, it isn't pretty! I was about 30 seconds behind one of my work pals that hit a deer while my pal was doing about 70 or 80. His patrol car (Ford) bumper and front end smacked the deer pretty   well square on. The airbag blew out the windshild and banged the fella's face up a bit, and the car caught fire.
I rolled up just as he was exiting the vehicle. He popped the hood and I put out the fire. Airbag did more $ damage than the deer.

I realize that you're old and slow and all, but if there actually was a defense to it, after 5 days you would have thought of it!  LOL!!!   ;D ;D  (http://www.bogley.com/forum/images/smiles/gerg.gif)

Well, I suggested BC strain off the floating hair in his bowl of camp stew, but he just gulped it down. Dang near plugged him up for good, the hair set up like concrete.
I heard the folks at the ER were gonna use a Roto Rooter but the high gas pressure blew the plug through four walls and it lodged halfway through the big oak tree outside. It was just like a solid cannonball, they say. They also said it was a good thing he was lying on his side on the gurney when it blew and nobody was in the line of fire.  :shock: The new Caddy that was parked outside had a hole blown through it the size of a watermelon. BC argued that his medical insurance should pay for the doctor's new Caddy that was parked outside, and he shouldn't have been parked there, anyhow.

I fixed the camp stew, I got a big strainer spoon.

As for John's explanation, I've only got 2 things to say .......... (http://www.bogley.com/forum/images/smiles/lame.gif)  (http://www.bogley.com/forum/images/smiles/Topes.gif)


I noticed he never did try to offer an explanation as to him "shopping" in government owned vehicles. :roll:

:roll:  ;D Well, you know how it is, you can only dodge so many critters without missing all of them. I do confess to eating the critters. Tire tracks across a critter doesn't reflect upon the quality of the meal.  :wink:

Last night while at work, my pal (a rookie) had a couger cross the road in front of him. I told my pal that he certainly has to improve on his gas pedal reflexes. I can understand his hesitation, he being a rookie. We have so many deer dart out in front of our patrol vehicles that instinct usually prevails and a fella tends to hit the brakes. He will have to develop better instant reflexs between the gas pedal and the brake pedal.  :wink: :twisted: Me, I would have OWNED that big cat.  :twisted: Of course, it would officially have been a tragic accident concerning the cat.  :roll:  :twisted:

We still have a viable breeding population of the big cats on our installation, by the way.

And, I do try to avoid hitting deer. We have more than enough people and fellow officers hitting the deer and filling out the reports is a royal pain. The time is better spent "shopping" the roads.  :wink:  ;D

You would think they would include some extra protection on the vehicles, but no. They must figure bodywork is cheaper than prevention. They are wrong.  ;D
