Re: Any hunters here?
Here's my thought on hunting. I'll duck and run in a serpentine pattern as I make it.
Where's the challenge in spending loads of money on hunting gear and weapons and HIDING IN A TREE?!?! Then killing the animal from a distance? Now, for me to be impressed, you'd take a knife, and even that might be cheating, and chase down and kill a deer with your bare hands. That's a fair fight, and would be real hunting. I played in a band with a guy that was nuts about hunting. He bought the latest everything. Kept his clothes he washed in special detergent in ziplock bags. Used buck calls, buck lure scent, tree stands, camo, all of it. Then he'd tell us of his tale of hiding 20 feet up and watching dear come in from 30 yards and they'd never see him and he'd kill em. Then of course, write on the tag in "pencil". That makes hunting more of a spending sport than a hunting sport. Like, buying a guitar that lights all the positions where you should press the string to play a song. And fishermen that spend $50,000 on a glittery bass boat, GPS fish finders, the latest rods and reels etc...............to out smart A FISH!!! Now that's just plain funny. Take a stick, and some 'string', and a worm on a hook, maybe it's fair... and impressive. Or better yet, a spear like the Indians did.
