    Guess I really blew this one. Didn't think this through before I posted. Got caught up in the emotion of the show I watched and didn't consider I'd be foddering the fodder. My apologies to those who hunt legally.

    questions to those of you against baiting. Do you hunt over any natural sources that deer feed on regularly?? Like acorns and grasses. Do you setup on trails to feeding area's? If so you would be taking a marked advantage over just picking any tree for a stand. Isn't that the reason most of you have problems with baiting, because it makes it easier???? I mean if you want to make things harder on yourself dump all the recent gear. Grab your long bow and get to it. Stalking that this.

    JMO but hunting is hard enough as it is. I can use all the help I can get.

    Yes, I only spot and stalk, but I would hunt from a stand over an animal trail, and I would hunt by a corn field etc. if that's the only area left to me, and if it was legal, yes, then I would hunt over bait under similiar curcumstances as the hunter from Spokane. I was simply answering "Bulls Eye's" thread when I stated that the "african" situation was "shooting", not "hunting", in my opinion. Further, if all other options were taken from me, I would "shoot" an animal in order to get venison.

    and everyone thinks there way is the right way.....



    here is my thought.....

    if within the law....then by all means, hunt how you like....

    these are the little things in life and take to much of our precious time here, to worry about....

    to each there own.....

    next time just turn the channel......

    Bunny,

    Its a forum. We came here to discuss things. Your are right about not getting worked up about things. The only problem I have with forums is the inability to determine the inflection or tone of the post. Sometimes I can sometimes I can't. Without inflection people can and will take things the wrong way from time to time.

    I like the personal challenge of being out and about. If it were legal to hunt over a feeder here, I might, but then again, I have enjoyed my time in the woods.

Yet, the “hunters” are euphoric, with high fives all around as though they have made a great hunting accomplishment.

    When hunting is always “under the gun” why add fodder to the argument? This was ridiculous! Why would anyone consider this hunting in the first place? I can just imagine the exaggerated stories that will be told about their great adventure in Africa. This will damage the sport!
    And starting a thread like this, that get's people fighting is helping the sport? Threads like this are one reason I don't go to AT anymore. No one can respect someone else's opinion and agree to disagree.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Check out Redneckarcher.com. It's an adult archer/hunting site that feels like hunt camp.

    I don't think there is any clear answer on this. "Hunting" means differant things to differant people and also the reason you are there.You get out of hunting what you put into it. Getting past that I feel it comes down to is it the matching of wits (are you smarter than a fifth grader) vs the satisfaction of the kill. I also use the catch and release theory on various species of fishes.
    Myself, I prefer the hunt portion itself. And as I get older the harvest part of the hunt becomes less important. Over the years I have passed on many a deer and to this day I would rather have a young doe than a big antlered buck. i also don't believe in the "if it's brown it's down" type of hunting neither.
    But that's just me. I neither condemn nor condone what other people do as long as it's legal. There are those that are out there to enjoy the "chase, those that main purpose is to fill the freezer and those that follow deer managemnet and finally those that are strictly for bragging rights and only go after trophy deer. To each their own.

    I noticed you did not say HUNT his first deer. Must have been a slip of the tongue.

    You posted this on Bowcountry too. What's your motive...cause over there you acted like you didn't realize it would cause such a fuss...yet over here you're pushing you're "beliefs" a bit more?

    Nothing good can come from splitting the hunting community.

    No need for anyone to take this personal, unless you are trying to justify something.

    Interesting topic!!!

    I garantee he had a blast and yes it was a hunt. Didnt think I had to say it was a hunt to anyone.

    I don't think they will be exagerating too much since it was on an episode of Versus for everyone to see.

    Man,

    The thing I'm concerned about iis the folks out there that hate hunters, period....

    In my opinion we need to hang close and get our numbers higher before the morons in Washington and state governments give us the shaft.

    The sad part is that there are a few idiots out there that do stupid stuff in the field (and out of the field) that give us a bad name. We need to weed them out... If we want to keep doing what we love...

    HMM how bout those JETS, This is one of those deals where we will argue amongst ourselves inside while the PETA treehuggers attack us from the outside and the whole system will colapse on our heads while we argue about it. No group of hunters will ever agree on methods. I know bowhunters who snub rifle hunters, and some snub tree stands and such. We dont know the whole deal, It could have been a canned hunt or animal was in a ten acre fence. Or it could have been timing. I saw a deer shot on the outdoor channel while he had his head poked in the feeder, I didnt agree. Some folks do. I dont think we should sit around and beat each other up over it.
