Just wondering if anyone else saw the Kay Hagen Gun commercial. It has the guy with a pump shotgun saying they want to check your medical and mental records during the background checks. So to speak, not so many words. Patronizing, I think! Just one more step to the ultimate goal of no guns.
I like to read peoples comments on these web pages, here are a few of the good ones.
Biden says if you hear something go outside and shoot twice with your double barrel. It will scare criminals off! Seems to me the criminal would know you need to reload and would charge you!
I can't believe he laughs, before he answers all questions! It wouldn't be a laughing matter. If he ever had to defend himself!
I like what this woman says. The law only affects law abiding citizens. Gun free zones shouldn't be allowed. If you are trained, and have a permit to carry. You may save lives! Criminals shouldn't have any safe place to go on a terror rampage. It should be in the back of their mind. Someone in here may be packing! The cowards wouldn't feel so safe and wouldn't be so arrogant! Biden acts like we need them to make decisions for us. The way they are trying to do their own people. Makes me worry, some other country will be bold enough to attack the land of the sheep! Then, your double barrel will get really hot, while doing the Red Dawn. ;)
We never know what the future will bring. I want to be packing, either way! Got me two more pistol permits last week! The sheriff said the background check gave him no reason to keep them from me!
I received this photo two days ago. My friend who let me hunt his land this year, got it from his neighbors' cell phone. He works in automotive. He saw one of his neighbors while working. Don't know how they got on the subject of deer. His neighbor said he shot this deer mid December, from his back porch. Turns out his house is maybe 500 yds from my stand sites. My buddy almost ran this deer over with his car last year. And had me pumped up about the area talking about it and another. I had a great time trying for bubba this year. But, realize now I prolly pushed deer into the thick stuff behind the dudes house. LOL I saw some nice deer, but nothing like this! I never got a pic of him either. The good thing is, turns out all of us, including his neighbor, have seen another bruiser with more mass, but less points. Last spotted by my buds girlfriend last week. So, my three year plan is still in effect! I learned a great deal this year about the area. So, maybe I will be posting pics of MY deer next year. ;) IF NOT maybe more of this guys! Dude invited us to go see it at taxidermist. I think it looks over 150 typical, maybe more because of length.
I noticed no one had posted about trapping! I have a little experience from mentor Katie Watson, on racoon, fox, muskrat, and unfortunately skunk!
My friend told me of a free class on trapping in October in Surry county. He decided to attend and turns out he learned quite a bit. I was so into deer hunting I didn't go. Wish now I had. But, I can live vicariously through him! Here are a few pics of some of his catches! He so far has gotten coyote, red and grey fox, bobcat, raccoon, and of all things otter! He loves it and can't wait to get back to his traps daily to see what is next!
How could you get tired of learning about her? Here's one more!
Here is the web page when Katie got a turkey at 93! My brother helped her get set up! See not only shoots good, she cooks good, too! :)
I UPDATED/EDITED THE OLDER POST ABOUT MY FAMOUS GREAT AUNT FROM RICHFIELD WHO IS 97. YOU WILL HAVE TO GO BACK THROUGH SEVERAL PAGES OF REPORTS TO FIND IT. IT DIDN'T BRING IT BACK TO TOP IN MOST RECENT, BY EDITING.
THE REPORT IS TITLED 'MY GREAT AUNT THE FAMOUS HUNTER!'
I BELIEVE IT WILL MAKE YOUR DAY IF YOU TAKE THE TIME TO FIND THE OLDER REPORT. THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO COMMENTED EARLIER. SHE REALLY LOVES THE ATTENTION SHE HAS RECEIVED!
YOU CAN GET TO IT BY CLICKING ON MY PROFILE PIC AND LOOK AT RECENT POST BY THIS USER, ALSO!
This is the news page for my great aunt! Check it out! She was the one who took my dad, now 83, hunting for the first time. He took a rabbit, that first trip. I can remember as a teenager, we stayed in her basement during hunting season. And dad would get up and be cooking sausage and biscuits. She would come down and say, 'Get up boy or your gonna get left!' She had a large fireplace down there and some beds and chairs! She always had a german sheppard! And one night, we had buried the deer guts down near the woods. And I was warming in front of the fire. She told the dog, 'Bingo get on your rug!' The dog always did. The rug was between her and I. Bingo had dug up the guts and eat em. Bout that time we smelled the worst fart ever! I looked at Katie, and she at me! Then she looked down at Bingo and said, 'Bingo, you've been eating them guts, and you got that boy thinking I farted!' We cried, laughing! A couple days later, I killed a button buck and was trying to gut and skin it! She got aggravated at the way I was doing it. And said move and pushed me out of the way! She took the ax and hammer and split the pelvic bone and had it quartered in minutes. She ran trap lines the and had hide stretchers all through the basement. She is amazing. And we are so very proud that she is still here! The whole family may have never hunted, if she wasn't! We have been blessed!
JUST THOUGHT WOULD UPDATE THIS REPORT! LAST SATURDAY THE TOWN OF RICHFIELD HAD A DISABLED AND HANDICAPPED HUNT! THE BANQUET AFTERWARDS THEY PRESENTED MY GREAT AUNT KATIE A NEW REMINGTON 12GAUGE AUTO. WE WERE GOING TO TAKE DAD, BUT HE HAS A HERNIA AND WASN'T ABLE TO GO. MY COUSIN TOOK KATIE AND THOUGH SHE DIDN'T GET A DEER. THEY DROVE AROUND RECOVERING THE ONES, OTHERS GOT, TO BE SKINNED. MY DAD'S FIRST COUSIN CALVIN BARRINGER HUNTED NEAR MORROW MNT. HE IS ALSO ONE AMAZING HUNTER AND FISHERMAN FROM OUR OLDER GENERATIONS. I THINK THERE WAS LIKE 50 DEER TAKEN AND OVER 200 PEOPLE WERE AT THE BANQUET! MAN YOU SHOULD'VE SEEN HOW QUICK THEY PROCESSED THE DEER AS THEY CAME IN!
I think best bet catch em near largest food source in morning going to bed. This time of year they will bed a little higher up ridge from doe's and in thickest cover available. Windy days ravines and creek beds! Evening hunt as close to bed without revealing yourself as possible.
Well, Stayed indoors since Saturday! Good thing! Checked cams today and no activity in my area! I took my backpack blower with me at lunch and blew all the leaves out of my two winter plots. I planted thro' n gro' under the white oaks where deer had rooted up leaves digging acorns all year. Saved alot of raking and preparation! I planted in 3rd week of August, right b4 last 3 day rain. Boy that stuff is greeeen! Sandy covered it up! Found new rub and scrape, so I plan all day hunt 2morrow. Going to bleat/grunt n rattle. Going to put decoy with doe in heat in plot! Does anybody else like the first two weeks b4 the rut, better than rut? I DO! Bucks are just waiting for doe to come in, so i bring one in! LOL It is hard to call one away from hot doe. You have to luck up and have her run through!
If you look and don't comment. Then that is like trespassing. LOL
THe cam was a old style with regular auto camera with 35mm film. It had a plunger style trigger that manually took pic. I was testing by waving arm. And here is history. LOL
Raccon snuck up and scared deer, check next to photos
