Hunters : Scouting Time Again
 
Well, Small-Mart is stocking up on their hunting supplies. Must mean one thing. Buck fever is beginning to take hold of me again. Bought a tripod feeder and put it out in a new area today along with the scouting camera. Time to pick out the one I want when bow season starts in 59 days.

oh yeah, going saturday to do some bush hogging, move some stands, get all the finishing touches ready to go, although to be honest, i don't bow hunt much ne more ( to hot down here ) and I get more excited about duck season than anything. :D

Dare2BSquare 08-02-2007 10:09 PM

The anticipation and the preparation are the most fun, anyway!!!

you need a season for geese?

up here canadina geese on your property = one less goose to poop on the lawn

Scotty355 08-05-2007 08:21 PM

Unlucky me that is not my property, I wish it was. The feds set the hunting seasons for all migratory game birds and here in Pa we can begin hunting the residents soon...
I'm getting hungry :)

debruins 08-05-2007 08:28 PM

but the canadian geese arent migratory?

well some of them arent, but how are you supposed to know b4 you shoot hem, or for that matter once they're dead

anyways, i'v enever eaten one b4, r they any good?

let me guess tastes like chicken ;)

2much 08-05-2007 08:36 PM

^^^ I am a waterfowl hunter, and I hate the way goose taste, and I have had it cooked abot every way possible, I don't shoot them unless I have someone else lined up to eat them.

On another note, was out all weekend plowing up a dove field. And rebel, I wanted to try to come to the buckarama, I normally make it, but was on a tractor all weekend. I guess doves are more important. lol.

Scotty355 08-05-2007 08:41 PM

All canadian geese are considered migratory we just have an early season to keep the resident population in check before the migrators start heading south.
Taste wise it is hard to explain but I love em, I guess it's like anything else, it depends on how you cook-em.

The hunt is the best,

set up before sunrise
sit back have a coffee
do some calling
.
.
hear some in the distance
..
.
call some more.
.
.
They're getting closer!!
.
.
call more
.
.
see them coming

.
.
wings cupping coming in for a landing
.
.
supper:D

Chicken on steroids, maybe. Dark red meat. More like doves in taste than chicken.

I was out in the woods yesterday checking my stand and putting out 3 salt blocks. Could be a good year.

Couldn't be any worse than last year. That tree was a little tough, and holy cow on the way out......all I can say is ouch and where are the tweezers?

Such an odd statement to go along with that picture, Pointy ;)

Dare2BSquare 08-06-2007 04:40 PM

It's a hunter thing... you wouldn't understand.

tiny terror 08-06-2007 04:56 PM

Considering I grew up in a bow hunting family (still shoot my bow), I understand completely and it's still an odd statement. Nothing beautiful about dead. Not against hunting by the way, just saying.

Dare2BSquare 08-06-2007 05:14 PM

It was a beautiful animal and will still be beautiful hanging on the wall over the fireplace.

tiny terror 08-06-2007 05:20 PM

Was. Never again. My pops was a taxidermist. Ain't nothing beautiful about a dead bit of animal on the wall in my eyes, but to each his own.

Dare2BSquare 08-06-2007 05:24 PM

Your avatar needs to loose that fur hat! :doh:

Tiny, its OK to feel that way about the animals You are leaving the qualifier "to each his own" so as long as you aren't trying to take away my rights I'm OK with the way you feel. :cool:

tiny terror 08-06-2007 05:42 PM

Oh, I don't have a problem with hunting in the least. I've seen feedlots, I'm sure every cow in them would welcome the chance to go up against a hunter in the woods any day of the week.

4point 08-06-2007 05:45 PM

I just pictured throwing a bale of hay out and climbing into a tree stand. :rofl:

tiny terror 08-06-2007 06:00 PM

cows are crafty, better watch yourself

4point 08-06-2007 06:05 PM

California has happy cows, I've seen them on TV. Not very bright though......kinda the dizzy blonde type.

Hey, who hijacked this thread, you or me? :rofl:
