gcdcpakmbs 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 10:06 PM
amy Do you ever video tape the matches? That would be fun to see.
01-24-2007 09:37 PM
rebelBullDawg325 oh man, it wa awesome to watch them guys shoot. they were makin shots i'd never dream of
01-24-2007 04:17 PM
amy Wow, that is impressive!

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

daddyjeep 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

I have been looking at a soft gun carrier in the cabela's catalog that is made to strap onto the rollbar of a UTV
I just have to find a UTV to measure the distance between the rollbars to figure out if it will work.

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

I've never been to a shooting range, I've been told the most local one to me is not worth it.
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 .

Wow, that does sound fun. I don't think I'm good enough yet to try that. I'm still trying to get the hang of doubles, when the little clay fits up under the regular one and when they get flung they fly together about 20 to 30 feet and split. We've also tried some clays called "rabbits". You have to set up your flinger so it throws them to roll on the ground. It's quite a challenge because they'll hit a rock or bump and bounce into the air right as you're pulling the trigger, never know what they're gonna do.
I'm ok with one shot, but usually can't get my second shot, still learnin'.

KA5IVR 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!

Awww, please don't shoot my husband. Skeeter may need a smack up side the head every once in a while but he doesn't deserve to be shot.

And the fun kind of skeet is when he... um... I probably should finish that on a family forum.

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 06:17 PM
Dare2BSquare But do you bait them?
01-22-2007 06:16 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 05:47 PM
rebelBullDawg325 i agree. i'll take it further. guns and driving dont mix with alcohol.... MAN LAW, and women too

I'll still pass on goin' wheeling or hunting wif ya. If it's your thing you take the responsibility. I prefer not to mix guns or driving and alcohol .
01-22-2007 04:08 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????

01-22-2007 12:35 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 11:26 AM
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.
