hunting audience

Just wondering what kind of hunting audience we have here at gunslot. Who here is a deer hunter? If not deer what else do you hunt? I’m a big white tail deer hunter. But I’ll hunt just about anything I come across.

I am no longer a hunter, although, when I did it was mostly Duck, Quail, Pheasant and Dove. We have a Safeway near me and I get whatever I want there.

Pigs in Texas

Pretty bad problem here, an estimated 4 million! We'll take care of them though....Open Season + No Limits = Alot less Pigs!

Mostly Birds Dove, Ducks, Pheasant, but hog hunting is loads of fun! I fish more than hunt, thats why I don't spend much time on here this time of year! The Fish Are Biting Somewhere!!

The pigs got lose up here (Michigan) but there not out of control yet. I’ve been looking 4 a spot to go kill some of em but I can’t find a spot worth driving too. I wish the dnr would put a bounty on them, to wipe them out before they are a real problem.

I never really bow hunted, but the past few years ive grown to love it. I haven’t taken down a deer with a pistol yet, was giving it a lot of thought this year.

Here in southern AZ

I hunt cans. I also tried running over a rattler yesterday on my quad, but it drew its head back just in time. I've bagged a few tarantulas and one whip scorpion so far. I can't wait to kill a jackrabbit to have it stuffed so I can mount it (heh heh). Deer here aren't even worth killing. Goddamn things are like dogs. Nothing like the big 'ol cornfed bastards in Missouri and Kansas.

Hey runaway

When I get the 9mm carbine, I would like to come down and go shooting with you. I have always wanted to bag a nice size can. I also need some help with the grip on my Glock 19, I seem to be spraying lead too far apart. My instructor took it and just about had 1 big hole in the target, said nothing wrong with it. did you get my raffle tickets? I will bring some ammo and gladly buy you lunch somwhere nice. It may be the arthiritis in my hands messing up my grip, who knows, maybe the runawaygun do!

Hunting

I like to deer hunt and hope my buddy from the Corp invites me again to go hunting with him and his boys this year. If not will just have to go deer hunting here in KY. Used to hunt birds and rabbits, but not now. Can't find a good place down here to hunt them like I had back in Indiana.

Elk hunter mostly

I live in washington but go to colorado to hunt elk. I also hunt lion and bear. We have figured out how to take care of the bear to keep the meat somewhat tender. It might just be washington bear that is tough. I hear e bear is great eating...sorry man, had to throw that in there.

We stopped hunting elk in whasington because there were more hunters than elk. I could not buy a tag for hunters, so we left the state!! The DoW banned the use of dogs here, so now we have a harder time with the bear and lion.

We stopped hunting deer because no one would eat it. We hunted the sagebrush and the venison was extremely "gamey". I was raised that if you are going to kill a game animal, you better eat it, I know what woodpecker taste likes.
