 ;D ;D Yeah I see that crap all the time and think to myself " you do realize we are the ones with the guns, don't you ?"
 If these folks could run something besides their mouth, they might not need government.

Just Jawin At Camp / Is It Just Me?
« Last post by bohicajuan on August 18, 2017, 05:33:55 PM »
Or are people getting dumber, crazier, stupider by the minute?  :idiot2 :crazy2 :uglystupid2

A buddy sent me a couple of blurbs from youtube that has the newest crop of left wing wingnuts and retards. I'm listening to kids in their early 20's that are openly preaching the communist manifesto and wanting armed violence and civil war. They are saying that people like you and I are the problem and we need to be put in gulags and retrained.

If that doesn't work then we must be "eliminated". Had one little hairy, butt ugly, dingle dyke saying that they will kill all these truck driving inbred rednecks and take their guns and melt them down, and then tie them to the melted metal and drop them into the ocean where the rednecks would serve as fish food.

Oh really? You want my gun?

Molon Labe!!

(that's Greek. Look up the meaning) O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0

  O0 I certainly enjoyed reading this, bo. You put it to words better than I could.

Being a rabid squirrel hunter and shooting an occasional rabbit and feral cat ( cat being my favorite game  :twisted: )  results in more personal satisfaction than hunting deer and big game. Bringing home big critters was shorter lived enjoyment. In fact, it was more work than it was worth, as well as much more expensive than chasing squirrels.  ;D 

It's much easier to carry small game that drag a big critter, especially considering my age.  ;D

I entice pals to buy .17 rifles, the first step of luring them into squirrel hunting. Then I forward hunting videos using super accurate and long range rifles for small game and varmint hunting. I have a good success rate. :twisted: We have turned several of their children into absolutely rabid squirrel hunters already.  :)

I have plenty of really good and mere minutes from home places to hunt because most landowners will grant hunting rights for squirrel hunting and some actually invite me to hunt! I have two brand new places to hunt this year, invitations.  :)

I've always liked rabbit hunting with dogs, but it has been a million years since I've been. Having a couple of beagles chasing a cottontail or swamp rabbit around is super fun. Met a man up in north Georgia that uses dogs to hunt squirrels. Never have used dogs on squirrels, but it must be fun. Are dogs legal in Iowa for squirrels?

He also loves his .17! He told me that he never wanted to stop using his .22LR but after a few rounds from the .17, he said he was hooked!

At 11:10 last night I spotted a large bobcat in my back yard, probably a tom. I watched it for some time through my back storm door screen as it hunted. It was only about 5 and 10 yards distance. I now have a pretty good idea where our neighborhood rabbits have gone.

I spotted the cat last week at about 50 yards distance, after dark. It crossed the street and was headed for the bluff.

The cat must be living close, just over the river bluff by our house.

Looks like he has staked out your neck of the woods because of the good vittles he can pick up! O0 It's amazing how close they can live to people and you only rarely see them. I wish I had been that stealthy back in my army days! I might not have been shot at as much! :D ;D :'( :shock: :buck2

Is there a bobcat season in Iowa? I bet with that cold weather up there those cats must get some really nice pelts!

I don't think there is any doubt that these TV shows have played a role in changing how people look and feel about hunting today. These so called "experts" are anything but experts. They go hunting at locations that are managed strictly for rack size and in some cases the native deer have been given an infusion of deer brought in from private game farms that are actually raising deer for the sole purpose of giving them superior genetic DNA that will in turn give their offspring a greater chance of producing bigger racks.

These places are charging successful hunters into the thousands of dollars to "harvest" a deer from their area. In this case the term harvest is quite apropos, since the deer are being grown like any vegetable or fruit and then harvested and put on your grocers shelves.

I agree there is a competition but when I was young I don't think it was competition with other hunters so much as it was competition with yourself. I played football from grade school through college and have shot IPSC and other type combat courses. I've participated in both military and police sniper competitions, but they were never the same as the way I felt when hunting.

Regardless if I was bow hunting or gun hunting or using dogs to chase deer, I don't think those who I hunted with were angry or jealous if you killed a nicer deer than them. In fact they were thrilled for your success, because the kill was incidental to the experience of hunting. The experience itself was what mattered.

You see how we've dropped off in numbers of guys that come here in post? We used to have a good number who dropped in daily and more that dropped in weekly. Now it's mainly you, John and D.
I'm busy as hell and so is BC. I'd venture to say that most of our old group is in the same boat, and some might not even HAVE a boat!

I wonder if we're going to become more like Europe, where only certain classes hunt and fish? Working folks can't get the time or afford to hunt over there. On the one hand I'm thankful that owning firearms is less restrictive today than it was back in the 1970s. But the fun we had hunting back in the 1970s is no longer there imho. So even those who still have the time and money might have hung up there guns because who wants to take time off just to spend it with people that are miserable to be around?

I think John might be the last hunter left who just enjoys squirrel and rabbit hunting! O0 :wink:
It's a shame others can't see how that small game hunting is every bit as fun as deer hunting, but it lacks the big payoff! Sad.

 ;DWe "hunt" gophers ( ground squirrel ) all summer, and Prairie dogs all year. In the winter cottontail are always fun.
More elk here now then when Lowie and clarkie came by looking for an easy way to get cross country.
 To get away from the weekend weird ones  , you just gota get out of bed sooner and maybe walk 300 yards
