Hunting is recreation. As far as that goes, pick a level of difficulty and go with it. Records? Whoever mentioned that separate records should be kept makes some sense. I consider myself a trophy hunter, but wouldn't walk across the street to enter an animal in a record book.
I hunt a myriad of ways. And I guarantee there are serious differences in some of the levels of difficulty. I know what really floats my boat...
spot and stalk whitetail with a bow. Even though it still gets the adrenaline pumping, I'm getting a little old for that. That's why I'm exploring this. Less walking, more riding, maybe just as much fun, eh?

|rebelBullDawg325||naw, i'm generally too busy makin sure things are runnin smooth. we'll probably have another competition to run in march, i 'll see what i can do about film|
|01-24-2007 11:06 PM|
|amy||Do you ever video tape the matches? That would be fun to see.|
|01-24-2007 10:37 PM|
|rebelBullDawg325||oh man, it wa awesome to watch them guys shoot. they were makin shots i'd never dream of|
|01-24-2007 05:17 PM|
|amy||Wow, that is impressive!|
|01-24-2007 04:11 PM|
|rebelBullDawg325||i help run a couple different charitable skeet shootin competitions around here. the last one we did was one with the twon man teams and 50 random clays like i was talkin about. the team that won it is on the Army shotgun team. there was 3 different 50 shot stations and their final score was 149/150. they were awesome|

I just started shooting trap last summer...what a blast(no pun intended). We are having a shoot in the next couple of weeks. It is going to be different in the snow.
Now Mike........Everything that you said in this post is what gives Jeepers and hunters a bad name. People don't want people wheeling on their land because they have visions of a bunch of guys out there getting drunk, tearing things up, and throwing their beer cans all over the place. You may be as responsible as the rest of us when you are wheeling, but the general public most likely will not think that way. And as far as hunting goes....the anti gun and anti hunting people just love hunters like you. You are just giving them one more excuse to condemn our sport.

|rebelBullDawg325||i've thought about building one that mounts to my top center roll bar. would make for some fun trips to the woods, dual shotguns up top with 2 buddies in the back blastin anything that moves|
|01-23-2007 06:59 PM|
|MouthfulOfGrass||UTV huh ?|
|01-23-2007 05:12 PM|
I just have to find a UTV to measure the distance between the rollbars to figure out if it will work.
|01-23-2007 04:21 PM|
|rebelBullDawg325||yea, i kno wat kind your talkin bout. we've got some of them, but when we go to the ranges they have automatic push button throwers that hold somewhere around 200 pigeons each|
|01-23-2007 11:16 AM|
Our family has our own disc flinger, it's the semi-auto kind that has a seat and when it throws it self re-sets about 75 % of itself and you don't have to pull back much to set it. It'll throw 2-at-a-time, and they'll fly in different directions at different heights. Or, you can use a mini with a regular, stacked, and they'll do the mid-air split. It's pivot-swivel mounted so it'll go almost 180 degrees side to side, and about 100 vertically.
We go out to the desert where we have a lot of open space in every direction, and listen for incoming dirt-bike riders .

|skeeter||Damn, this place is getting dangerous|
|01-23-2007 10:19 AM|
|rebelBullDawg325||oh yea, rabbits are tricky. we've got a pretty much world class skeet range not far from where i live. it throws a little everything. doubles from one thrower is hard enough as it is. this place will throw a single from 2 different spots at the same time (generally on opposite sides of you and at different angles) so they cris cross, but one will fly further,higher, and slower, while the other may fly flat and fast. it's awesome, i loooove it|
|01-23-2007 08:45 AM|
I'm ok with one shot, but usually can't get my second shot, still learnin'.
|01-22-2007 10:02 PM|
I just have one thing to say about this hunting thing...
Chaney = Guns = Lawyers
He did not get in trouble, because who cares if you shoot a Lawyer!
|01-22-2007 08:07 PM|
And the fun kind of skeet is when he... um... I probably should finish that on a family forum.
|01-22-2007 07:23 PM|
|rebelBullDawg325||lol, the fun kind of skeet is when you shoot in 2 man teams. you say pull the 1st time, then 50 random pigeons fly from different trap houses with 4-6 second between each one. so you never know when or where its commin from. and you've gotta communicate with your partner so that one person is shootin while the other is loadin|
|01-22-2007 07:20 PM|
|MouthfulOfGrass||I taunt the guy that responds to the word "pull", but I don't know if that would be considered "baiting".|
|01-22-2007 07:19 PM|
|rebelBullDawg325||i love skeet shootin, i'm probably goin sometime soon|
|01-22-2007 07:17 PM|
|Dare2BSquare||But do you bait them?|
|01-22-2007 07:16 PM|
|MouthfulOfGrass||I only hunt those offensive little plates that fly through the air at varying speeds and heights and are colored neon orange on one side. Hate those little buggers, want to blast 'em all outta the air.|
|01-22-2007 06:47 PM|
|rebelBullDawg325||i agree. i'll take it further. guns and driving dont mix with alcohol.... MAN LAW, and women too|
|01-22-2007 05:35 PM|
|01-22-2007 05:08 PM|
|rebelBullDawg325||those of yall that are against hunting bc is isnt "sporting" how many of yall eat beef, pork, fish, or chiken???? tell which is more sporting; scouting out the woods finding the patterns of your prey, and then finding them, and killing them and eating.... OR, having a bunch of cows fenced in all their lives and fed up so they'll become fat so you can send them to a slaughter house and eat? same with pigs and chicken. as for fish, the ones that arent farm raised (which is the same thing as cattle farms basically) the majority of the other fish we eat were caught by dragging a huge net through the ocean or river and scooping up anything in its path, then left on deck to suffocate to death so we can eat it. lets hear it????|

|Mike001||To each his own. I've been doin it for years. When we wheel we take some beer with us too its just something we do not to get drunk though.|
|01-22-2007 02:38 PM|
......accidents happen without intent...let's put into the mix something that will alter your consciousness and delay motor skills....why risk it? AD doesn't need any more business
If I stepped on any toes...apply ice and the swelling will diminish in 24'
|01-22-2007 01:35 PM|
|amy||I'm sorry, Mike, but I disagree with you on that. Mixing booze with guns is like mixing booze with jeeps. A bad idea. Have a thermos of something hot while hunting and save the beer for after your gun is put away (or your jeep is parked for the night).|
|01-22-2007 12:26 PM|
|Mike001||Well I disagree about the hunting and alcohol thing but there is a limit and you have to be responsible. I like to have a few beers while I'm sitting on the ground freezing my ass off or sitting in a stand. If you can't do that responsibly then don't do it. If you drink to much you put your rifle up and grab a shotgun. Then look for the varmints that tear up crops and feed plots.|
