Not that you care, but I have hunted in Jack and Wise Co for about 20 years. Not once have I ran across a whitetail this size. For example this size "free ranging" deer comes along about as often as a perfect game in baseball.
The Boone and Crockett Club is a non-profit organization founded in 1887 by Theodore Roosevelt and now headquartered in Missoula, Montana. It maintains records of trophy game animals and has been a leader in game conservation throughout the world. http://www.boone-crockett.org/BTW - I had a hamburger made of a defenseless steer the other day and often stop to take home some defenseless dead chickens from Chicken Express.
Ahemmm...Deer are NOT "defenseless." They ELECT not to use their horns and hooves to slash at hunters. Just last week I served twice marinated, grilled bacon wrapped venison backstrap with a sour cherry and mango chutney on a bed of wild rice and grilled asparagus spears. Based upon the compliments on the meal, EVERYONE was grateful the deer was killed. One of my guests was not aware it was venison until he was told after the meal.
8:58, please tell me how a deer is going to use its hooves and its antlers to defend itself against some guy with a gun or bow hiding near the feeding station in a wooden shed or up on a tower or tree? Look, I eat meat so I have no basis to complain about people that kill deer and eat them. But feeding an animal year round and then showing up one day with a weapon is hardly a "fair chance"...and it's hard to see how a so-called sportsman or sportswoman finds much satisfaction in proudly displaying an animal they've killed in this manner. It's just too easy.
I'm still confused why it is illegal to "seed" a field for birds but it's just dandy to feed deer all year then lay in wait for them to come to lunch. Where's the consistency?
Animal rights people may not like to admit it, but it is because of hunting and game protection laws that we have wild life. More deer die from starvation and getting hit by cars than are killed each year by hunters. Money from hunting licenses and game preservation by land owners who make money off of hunting is what protects wild life the most.
Your definatley not a typical Wise County Redneck are ya now?
12:22, there wouldn't be so many starving deer if we had not killed off so many of the animals that eat them. You are right on many fronts, though. The situation has gotten to the point where we need to manage and preserve what's left before we screw that up, too.
Last year I got me a really nice fawn.
That was the sports page of the DMN? The human uses infrared cameras, feeds the deer all year, sits in a camouflage blind then, from 50 yards away, with (one assumes) a high-powered scope..and this is a sport?Call it what you will, and I have no objections to hunting for food- really, but it is hardly a sport, is it? Do any other "sports" cause the winner to feel "kind of sad" for the loser?
Hunting is an American tradition. Just like being a whiney pussy liberal is a Democratic tradition. If you don't agree with hunting or whiney pussy liberals, you have no choice but to accept it. You whiney pussy liberals.
Okay, this is odd. I say Lari Barager looks chunky and you don't post it but when I say "pussy" 15 times and you put it up immediately. Very consistent. ??????
