Any hunters here?

I am not a hunter, but I was looking for some information.
Just wondering if there are any hunters here?

Re: Any hunters here?

I see we have a fellow beaver hunter.

I dont hunt but my stepdad is a big hunter. It helped put food on the table more than once.
Here's all I know
Deer- Good
Bear- not so good
Pheasant - God Awful
Alligator - Interesting
Buffalo - Good
Ostrich - Good

Re: Any hunters here?

I just won a Matthews Drenalin compound bow at a golf tournament.
I am not a hunter, so I dont know what to do with the damn thing.
Is this a good bow?
I had several offers for it up to $700.00 in minutes after winning it.
How good of a bow is it?


I tried playing "Tender Surrender" on it but the thing is really out of tune.

That I dont know, but if you arent going to hunt or shoot at targets with it, you might as well take the $700, or see what they are going for on the bay or online sporting good stores.

Not really a hunting question but...

I just looked it up on google and found the manufacture website that listed a Drenalin bow for $850 msrp. Might be the same model.

Surely you can check it out and see if you model is on the website and get an idea.

Re: Any hunters here?

I'll just say this...

I grew up in BFE Virginia, and did a lot of hunting growing up. And like El Cid said, it definitely contributed to what was on the table for dinner.

If you've never hunted before, then you might as well forget about starting out with a bow.

I'm a big fan of Bear compound bows, and I haven't heard of the one you mentioned, but that does not mean it's not a good bow.

If you want to keep it, I'd suggest getting a good set of sights and do some target shooting.

Thanks for the idea.
I googled and it came up at $850.00.

At the golf tournnament today a buddy of mine made a great comment. He introduced me to a customer and said " This is Mike, he plays guitar, he is such a pu$$$, that when he plays Metallica, it sounds like Journey"

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.


*ducking and running*

Now that's funny. That would be impossible. That would be like trying to take a wrench out and chase down a car to loosen one of it's spark plugs.

Hunting is a good sport, that is obviously in the human's benefit, but it still takes skill, and is very difficult.

Modern day hunting has evolved to the point where humans have the advantage (and think about it, why would it not be so), but it's still not an easy chore.

And yes, there are some suicidal deer out there. I've seen deer charge to the point where a few shots get you lucky if they land in your lap.

Re: Any hunters here?

This is all I hunt. I don't like Cottonmouths(Water Moccasins) coming on my property or near my dock, so I take out every one I see near me! We have alot in my pond. This is one I shot 2 weeks ago. It is my biggest one yet! I have 8 kills this year..... Just so you know, the Cottonmouth is the deadliest snake on the east coast of the U.S. So, as much as I don't like to kill them, I have to, for the sake of my wife, kids and dogs. It was actually a gorgeous snake. It was 3 1/2 feet long. They are very agressive as well. I take these guys out with a 775fps Remington air rifle. I like to sit on my four wheeler on my dock after a good days work and drink a few beers and whenever I see one coming........well........this is what happens...... The water usually comes up to the edge of my dock. This drought in GA sucks ass! My pond is down 4 feet!
