Bear and Deer rides in my TJ

So the Jeep has been an wonderful tool this last week getting my Bear and Deer back to camp. Normally I use an ATV, but the Jeep worked out so much better this year. Here's some pics:

Fall bear harvested with a Ruger Vaquero in .45LC.






3x3 Mulie harvested via arrow.







Towed the Jeep around Oregon via a towbar

Why is it "harvested" when its an animal and "killed" when its a person? Just wondering.

Because hunting and murder are completely different. Hunting reduces population, which can be a problem for many species and regions. Not too mention how much money it raises in funds for the government and profits for all the companies that sell, manufacture and distribute the items used in hunting. I guess if you wanted to argue semantics you could say that animals poached or shot out of season were killed, while animals that were taken legaly with a tag were harvested.

Yep, I agree. Plus "harvest" means a renewable resource that you are going to eat! I suppose if you hit a deer on the hwy then it could be considered "killed".

I agree! We could start by reducing the population in DC, then move on to the other criminals out there. This way we would not have to spend any money on prisons!

In NE Oregon. I got one in the Spring 1.5 years ago as well...the only two bears I have ever seen and I fortunately had tags.

I process it all myself. Lots of steaks, burgers, and I make alot of jerky on the smoker. The burger is especially good in tacos and spegetti.

that's cool you watched it! i started reading "the china study" (which they mention in 'fork over knives') which is why i cut down on eating meat. "food inc" is another good one. I can't give up meat completely (I grew up eating whatever was farmed or hunted) but I am trying to cut out mass produced meats like fast food and foster farms, tyson, etc.

Yep, Food Inc was a good reminder for me for why I hunt free roaming food that has not spent its life in a dark barn being injected with hormones and standing in its own poop.

So I personally feel best if I have a balance of 8-10 ounces of vension, elk, or bear a day. Lots of veggies and fruits. While going easy on the bread and crackers....but gotta have some. I very rarely get sick and maintain about 185lbs (at 6' tall).

That is a sound plan. I just ran out of elk from last December. Can't wait to get another.

You guys are admitting that you consume Tofu on a Jeep Forum ?

Jeeeeezzzz, and I thought Jeeperz were sposed to be .....well, you know, Jeeperz jus don't do that sort of thing.....do they ?

Well, I sure hope you at least had the decency to wash the taste outta yer mouths with a good cold BEER...

Ohhhhh, I'm just funnin with ya....I actually tried some Tofu once.....I tried to make some MESO (?) Soup with Tofu... ( the soup failed miserably...) and I followed the directions to the letter.

Doesn't a nice big juicy Helvatia Burger sound good right now ?
And a deep fried Snickers bar for desert.... YUMMMMMMM....
