Yup. I cant imagine what its like to be like you. That would suck the big one. I pity you very much. Do you put make up on every morning? Just wondering.
My reasons for hunting, I don't have any high and noble reasons. Yes, it does help the deer out, its either die slowly of over population and inbreeding or a quick death through a bullet or spear. Which would you choose? I don't know about you (you never seem to make much sense) but I would gladly take the bullet over slow starvation.
First in my family to walk upright? Who said I walked upright? And if I was you Bobbyboy, I wouldst go insulting the intelligence of a guy who spells better than you, uses better English, and capitalizes the first letter in every sentence. Heck, you even misspelled "Pity"

Have a good one, all you normal people out there!

well, congradulations on your outstanding vocabulary. how cum a smart man like you cuts grass for a living? i "wouldst" go insulting anyone? who said i "walked" upright? (should be, "who said i WALK upright?) . but, who keeping track ? ok, let me clarify me feelings a bit, so u fine, intelligent men can understand. WHERE I LIVE(this is a place where we dont kill 20 people a week by lethal injection, even though they couldnt get a fair trial) there are hardly any woods left. when i was a young man(21) each licensed hunter was allowed one antlered deer each year. you were also allowed to send in a request for a one day doe permit. well, there i was in the tree, and this 6 pointer walked right in front of me, i blast him with a side by side old double barrel i had. he goes down and flops, and flops, for what seemed to be hours, i try to blast him again, but the gun is jammed, and wont fire. how do i feel? i feel like the lowest form of life there is, for doing this to this animal, and now hes suffering and i cant even end him. so my buddy jumps out of his tree and blasts the deer again. the first thing i thought was i wonder if a vetinarian(spelling, im a dummy) would treat this animal if i brought it in. i found no pleasure at all in killing, and was quite ashamed of myself. i gave away both my guns, and my bows. today, there are almost no woods left, yet you are allowed to shoot about 40 deer per man, and are encouraged to take females. what burns me up is that they call it conservation, when whhat they really want, is extinction. do u also club baby seals? man, if stabbing a pig to death gets your rocks off, u should get a real charge out of bashing in a little seals head. hey, i know, why dont u take the whole family? what a nice vacation it would be. what i did on my summer vacation:" dear class, this year, my dad brought us to alaska, we had so much fun. dad gave us each a bat, and we smashed baby seals . it was great" . now why dont u pick on someone else ? for gods sake, i cant even spell, u know i must be a moron

Most recently survived Nitrate poisoning. No one should have to go through the pain I went through. Thankfully a doctor, using some kind of scanner, discover the high nitrate levels in me.

First thing he asked me was I eating fertilizer? Said he had never heard of anyone with levels that high who lived.
Hey Parkwest, you wouldn't be married now would you and your significant other cooking for you? Gotta watch those women.

I used to be a big time deer hunter but mostly now only dear hunt. However, I have taken in some pretty cool rifles this yr from clients down on the payment. I got a Remington .300 ultra mag SS w/a laminated stock w/a 3.5x10x50 scope and a Ruger M-77 .270 SS w/Laminated stock as well and a Burris 3.5X10x50 nickel plated scope to match the stainless. I will be looking closely at the new H&K semi-auto rifles this yr. I only bench shoot but it sure would be a "nice to have".

Bobby what is your problem ? I see where you come from but u said that u would stay out of it but you are not?
and in the last post you just made you dissed the occupation that you are in? whats up with that? then you are obvously no better than the man you think you are better than.
there are always things that happen that might make you think twice but they are all better than chronic wasting desise or even mad deer deise(found in 2 wyoming deer in 1998)

any ways, Hunting is a billion dollar a year industry that employes thousands of people , and benefits the economy. also companies that make guns also make things like golf clubs. sturm ruger forages some of cleveland golf`s irons. second of all the money that hunters pay for tags, licences , game seals ect. goes back to the wildlife in conservation efforts. HUNTERS not anti-hunters were the first conservationists and still do most of the work. Foundations like Ducks Unlimited , Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation , just to name a few were founded by hunters to conserve and regulate our natural resources. when my freind and I shelled out over $400 a peice last summer to get our licenses and seals that went back to the wildlife not to mention the Conservation assosiation I work at for FREE when i`m not cutting grass that every year raises and releases wild turkey and pheasant . Hunters not anti-hunters did this now does every body that is an anti-hunter do that for the welfare of our game animals or what? If you are so concered about the welfare of our animals to diss a post about hunting , think about this, would you rather have an animal starve , ran over by a truck , poisoned, or die of a dieses than be taken without pain by a hunter and eaten? Why not boycott the golf course for destrying habitat if ur so conserned , maybe some one took a divot and killed a worm. or that house you live in ..... it was built on an animals habitat .
your country and mine was established on hunting , fur trade ect.
where i`m from hunting is a way of life and so are the shooting sports. and they issue tags for females waaayyy more often then bucks because in my county the deer are way over polulated. there where 227 deer vehicle collisions last year in a 50 mile radious. and deer out number people by 3 to 1 we have a problem here , and there isn`t enough food to support that population. some are starting to die and crop damage due to deer is doubled.
well thats all i`m good for tonite.
have a good one y`all

Bobby,

Yes, I deer hunt as well. Try to do so every year if I can, but some years I can't seem to find the time being busy with work...

I don't hunt just for sport...it's nice to be able to get out in the woods for a week or two. Kinda gets you back to nature and it really helps me to relax.

Every deer I kill goes on my dining room table...i.e. it helps feed my family...

Hunting helps keep the deer population in check. A few points mentioned earlier, were the reduction of population so the deer don't starve themselves to death.

Deer have no natural predators anymore. Wolves, coyotes, pumas, and mountain lions were about the only large animal predators that kept the deer population in check. Well...wolves, coyotes (generally kill and eat the fawns), pumas, and mountain lions aren't in large enough numbers anymore to have any impact on the deer population. So this leaves the State-run wildlife agencies to come up with a plan to control the deer population, alas we get deer hunting season.

If you've kept up with deer hunting in the last several years, you'll see in most places the bag limit has gone up - even with the larger numbers of hunters, the bag limit is still going up. Where I hunt, 20 years ago you were allowed 4 bucks only. Now with quota hunts, county hunts, state hunts, muzzleloader only hunts - I can bag around 18 deer a year if I wanted to. I usually kill 2 and that keeps me supplied with enough deer meat for most of the year.

Another benefit of deer hunting is feeding the homeless...some States have adopted a deer hunting program to feed the less-fortunate and is aimed at those folks who only hunt to kill deer for sport - i.e. those hunters who don't plan on keeping the deer for themselves anyhow. They can now donate their deer to help feed others.

Lower car insurance rates and countless monetary damages to vehicles, and human lives saved because there are fewer deer running around on our nations roads are another great benefit of deer hunting.

Can you imagine the mass numbers of deer that would just ravage the crops in the U.S. if the deer populations weren't kept in check? Farmers have enough problems with deer today and are usually issued special permits to hunt deer all year round just to keep them out of the fields.

Deer have adapted to the encroaching housing/city developments of man, unlike any other animal in the U.S., which is why they thrive so well. They are a very hardy animal.

Really, do some research before you bash anyone...

Did you know there are MORE deer in the U.S. today than when Christopher Columbus first landed? Look it up...

Do a little research on deer populations and you'll see how out of control it can be.

My two cents...

TC

Now, that sounds like a great program!

Bobbyboy, notice I didnt say my spelling was PERFECT, I said it was better.

Its not my fault you were a bad shot. First deer I took I nailed him right in the heart, he stopped moving within 5 seconds, and he died in less than 30 seconds. I didnt have to shoot twice. My suggestion is that you learn to shoot before you go hunting, and then, you also learn how to clear a jam from your gun before you go hunting as well! To do any less is irresponsible hunting behavior! Any responsible hunter knows how to shoot, and how to clear a jam.
I am sorry (seriously) that you had a poor hunting experience. No hunter enjoys seeing an animal struggle and die slowly. Thats not fun.
If there is a post on deer hunting, and you know its a post on deer hunting, why did you even click on it? Why not just leave it as a post for hunters who enjoy that type of thing, and just go click on a different thread instead of coming on this one trying to pick a fight?

DaddyRabbit, be sure and tell us what that new H&K semi auto turns out to be when you get it!

There is a small charity event we do that Hunters Feeding The Homeless thing, every year out on a small privately owned ranch (only about 200,000 acres) we go out and shoot all the deer and hog we can, then go donate it. Last year we donated nearly 3000 pounds of meat! That was pretty cool.

Hey Daddy you're talking about the ex. The cops asked me the same thing. They wanted to know if she had any chemistry background. I said, hell man she has a degree as a medical specialist and they said.

"WOW, and your still alive"

Didn't believe it was possible a wife would do something like that to a man until I saw the video of the Texas dentist mutilating her husband by running over him a bunch of times.

Thought I would try a change of scenery. My new girlfriend is an Angel from heaven.
