best meat ive ever had was california big horn--like veal fillet...And here is the beauty of wild meat, no hormones, no vaccinations, no feed lot diseases, no mad cow, just 100% naturally fed pure protein in tasty form. Ive been eating venison meat loaf most the week.

i recommend the following

cotton tail and white tailed jacks/snowshoes
ruffed grouse
blue grouse
sage grouse if CLEANED IMMEDIATLY!
and the "ribeye of the sky" sandhill crane.
himalayan snowcock isnt that great sautes are required

Girlfriend was a veggie for over a decade. Only eats organic meat now. We too have been eating deer steak of late.

But thats not how we define ourselves, its just a thing we do. Like climbing.

i wont deny the canines..omivores that we are. Those that know how to treat their game have the best possible available meat. You can home process it with a grinder and a good set of knives.

and of course hunters have stepped up and paid for the wildlife comebacks in this country. While the antis paid for commercials against hunters. go figure.

I still don't get where Weedge came out all anti hunter? Hunting doesn't mean you need a gun neither. I bet Weedge hunts too, but without all that sissified scopes and rifles BS. He hunts them down buck naked and pummels them to death with his fists and grit! You seen that guy? He's like goddamn smeogal snackin on raw fish from yon crick and then soloing OW!

I bet he punches bears in their balls fer fun's sake!

Weedge only eats Bald Eagle egg omelettes fer' breakfist!

He's a back woods pibber huffin' mountain man with some odd scribblins and you best recognize that, Hyram!

Just curious, has anyone ditched their guns and just happened to notice that their "little dicks" immediately grew a couple of inches?

edit: the reason i ask is because i have a winchester 30/30 stashed away in my storage locker that I haven't even dug out, let alone shot, in 10-15 years, and i was thinkin' if perhaps I got rid of that rifle, maybe there actually may be some correlation between "little dicks" and ...

oh, never mind!!

Life is eternal on the internet, one can never die. People with the techie know-how can resurrect a dead thread. What next?

And the spirit of my original thread is not on this resurrection.

Is this a gun argument?

Cool, I think guns are great. I own two myself.

I do however think that people who obsess over their firearms are scared, whiny, pussies who are compensating for some inherent weakness in their personality.

Genetics? Parenting? I don't know.

The fact that gun nuts are hoarding ammo is a sign that said people are weak, scared, and unintelligent.

I like shooting, but reactionaries freak me out.

Don't get me going on handguns...

Elk, Moose, and the tenderloin off whitetail deer. All the rest of that Ronanderson listed taste like crap. Only people dumb enough to eat grouse and dove are the ones who spent a bunch of time and scratch to hunt em in the first. Call yer dentist first too cause #7 1/2 shot does a number on your pearlies.

I always thought little dicks and big guns was a name for body builders. Take them roids and shrink their gonads but get some big old arms. Then they just go apeshit crazy and drop dead like Lyle Alzedoh.

Are you going to eat what you kill?
I have something to say to both factions, here!

My father, mother & family are from Cape Breton, NS! He, when he was courting my mother, went out and shot a deer and (after field gutting it, etc) brought it to her mother and offered it their family. That told her (my grandma/grandpa had already passed on) that my father was capable of providing food for my mother. This was 1940.

By the time I was 6 y.o. my father took me out into those very same Canadian woods and taught me how to set snares to trap wild hairs (rabbits). And how to track and hunt them with a rifle (22)! This wasn't a hobby or simple pastime, it was at times, pure survival (cape Breton was an isolated island back then, and the winters could be VERY severe). It could have meant life or death in the most extreme situation, and believe me when I say things could get very extreme in the Canadian outback of the 1950's! But it also meant supplementing an, at times, Spartan existence ... putting some much needed protein on the dinner table. There is something very satisfying & rewarding, and very ingrained in our psyche, regarding that.

We moved to upstate NY and for my 8th birthday I asked for a rifle. I drew pictures of one a couple times and got up early in the morning and snuck down and put it in my fathers lunch pail before he went to work s a reminder! So, when my birthday rolled around and this long box wrapped in birthday paper was handed to me, you can guess what I thought it was. Well, to my surprise, it was not a rifle, it was a recurve hunting bow and set of hunting arrows. I was shocked. I couldn't figure out what went wrong ... was I that bad of an artist?

Well, I fell in love with that bow (and i never questioned my father bout why he got it, but I suspect he figured i was little to young to be out in the woods, etc. with my own rifle). I also developed a keen interest on the Native American tribes and culture. Spent countless hours in the library[s] (we moved a lot) studying about their ways. I also learned a lot about their respect for all life. My father also had that respect, and passed it on to me.

I recall coming home one day with my newly initiated butterfly collection. I had this beautiful Monarch butterfly that I had caught (when i was 13), put in a bottle with mothballs to kill it, and then pinned to cardboard and proudly showed it to him. I will never forget the sadness and sincerity that afternoon when he said to me, "Oh the poor thing, it just wanted to live to!"

I learned a valuable lesson that day, that there is a time to kill, and a time to let live. He (and the books on Indian culture) had taught me that early on but it was slipping away secondary to the changing world around me (we had moved to California, lol). My father was no wimp. In fact, he had gone over to our next door neighbors house that very summer (had never been in that house) and in front of this mans 10-12 kids and wife, took off his belt and wiped his ass and then drug him outside and threw him in our car and took him to the police station and had him arrested for child abuse.

These kids were being tortured every day. They lived right next to us (across the alley) and every evening we could hear one of them crying, etc! They had a lot of kids and we had just figured one or two were being punished for being bad or whatever. One day this kid about my age, invited me into the house. It was very unusual for him to do that because they were very aloof, very guarded and stuck to themselves. He told me this horrific story how his father would come home every evening and randomly pick one child and then literally torture the hell out of them well into the night. I saw the fear in their eyes (the were literally shaking and weeping) and the hideous scowl on their fathers face when he walked past me as I was going down the stairs and out of the house and he was going up to their rooms to pick his victim of the day.

Well, that is besides the point. What I am saying, the point i am attempting to make, is that things have gotten somewhat out of hand in America over the last half century (since I was a kid). I use to go out and hunt jackrabbits with that bow with broadpoints/arrow tips (the blade type for hunting big game) and dreamed about bringing home a big buck some day instead of a measly jackrabbit.

BUT, i also new that if I had killed those hairs/rabbits when one had a litter of babies, there would be a bunch of little babies waiting an awful long time for their mother to return ... suffering a cruel and prolonged death. And I had stood face to face with a large cottontail which i had wounded but was not yet dead. It turned and stood up on its haunches and looked me directly in my eyes and let out a long and desperate wail. It was begging me for its life (it to just wanted to live). If you have never heard that from an animal, and are a hunter, I hope you soon will. It will certainly give anyone who has little or no concern for their preys desire to exist something to seriously consider before you take it home and hang it on your wall.

Well, kinda of a rant/ramble ... hope that i made my point!


Edit: Another thing. How are you gonna feel when one of these people you just got into a heated argument with the night before ends up dead, and it could have been somehow directly related to some you said. Perhaps they were distracted by it while driving home (preoccupied by it) and drove off the road or hit some kid!

Try showing each other a little respect. We are each only on this planet for a VERY short time. Today could be your (or the person your hating on) last day here on earth. How would you like YOUR last day here on earth to be like?

Whats up with the ass wiping?


Kicking, yeah; but wiping?

Anyway, I've heard rabbits scream. But I yell back, "cause I'm gonna eat you!"

Ron O,

Dood, I am pretty certain I have killed WAY more rabbits than you, bro! How many rabbits have ya eatin? I am positive i got ya beat in that dept also. Rabbit is taste a lot like chickens dark meat, but a lot tastier, imo. And the same goes for deer/venison (prollie shot/eatin more).

Matter of fact, I loved hunting, it was practically a way of life. And if I was hungry and didn't live directly across the street from Albertson's and and a half dozen fast food places, i would do it in a heartbeat. It just seems as though it has lost much of its allure (for me anyway) living in these times in the middle of a big city. These doods here on ST whining about it (guns & hunting) would be the first ones to take it up, or beg you to go out and kill something for them if they had been born 50-100 years ago, or even now and lived off the beatin' track.

In my opinion, wildlife and animals in general have more than one purpose though. And I have come to respect that. That is all I was saying.

And as far as being an "asswipe" I sure in hell hope you weren't referring to me. Cuz, I have little self control at times, and I would hate to have you kick my F'n ass all over Jtree or wherever, should we run into eachother sometime and I was fool enough (believe me i am) to come up to you and remind you of it and challenge you to a fight.

Because where I come from, them's are fighting words. And I have gotten my ass kicked so many times over "fightin' words" that getting it kicked one more time isn't gonna make a whole lotta difference! lol

BTW, several of my uncles in canookland were hunting guides, bitd!(fisherman also/lobster, haddock, cod & halibut). Like I said, it was a way of life (a damn good way, imo)!!!

Gosh, I started a thread that I tried deleting, but it still lives. Considering most of my threads die slow death down the Supertopo pages, I think that this one has legs. There is a lesson to be learned. Start a thread, then nuke it after a couple of posts and the thread lives on.

Boy, Ron and others, you taught me a valuable thread lesson. My hat is off to you people.
