    Thoughts on High fence hunts

    My dad and I raised whitetails when I was growing up. It was really fun and I learned a ton about deer in those years. Our end market was shooting farms, we didn’t allow it in our place but that’s where they ended up. I don’t hold anything against people that make their living that way or people that want to do that for fun. I shot a red stag in NZ and it was on a high fence (all the stag hunts are if they’re anything bigger then a raghorn, if anyone tells you different they’re full of it) it wasn’t my cup of tea and I won’t do it again, but that’s my opinion only. A lot of the other guys hunting there were amazed by all of the game and had the time of their life. That’s their choice and their experience and that’s none of my business to get involved in.

    I thought all vehicle salesmen were required to refer to their customer as “boss” or “bossman”.

    Covid, whos had it and how are you recovering?

    Sorry just saw this. Thanks for asking! My weird taste stuff is almost all back to normal except I noticed my moms prime rib which is my favorite meal ever smelled like piss over Easter dinner. I didn’t wanna say anything and offend her so I asked my wife on the drive home if the prime rib tasted different to her and she said it was excellent. That sucks as it’s like my second favorite thing to eat! As far as my lungs go they are getting better. I had heard that you can damage lungs and they’ll essentially grow elsewhere to recover so I dunno if that’s what’s happening or what, it’s been slow going but I’ve been riding stationary bike since it’s been cold here up until recently and now hiking our hills behind our house nightly and it’s getting better. I’m getting some asthma like symptoms occasionally that I didn’t have before the rona so I keep an inhaler in my pickup in case that gets worse but so far so good. I’m hoping I can be back to normal by elk season this year and hopefully improve my fitness after that from where I was as I’ve got a NWT trip planned in aug 2022.
  5. My first 4 took a year and a half. Hoping for shorter on my next one since my trust is set up but no idea really.

    Losing Little by Little!

    Good to see you back! We’ve got too dam many people in this country and world and it’s boiling down to a supply and demand. The demand is up and the supply is going down. Unfortunately it won’t get any better ever again. We literally have just lived through “the good old days” of hunting in our country and I’m guessing most of us (myself included) were too busy thinking about the earlier “good old days” to notice it.

    Hunt proposal, more limited archery units

    If you think that glassing allows you to see more animals in a morning or evening of looking you haven’t spent much time in a plane. You can cover infinitely more ground with a plane. No you aren’t going to see every animal, but that is accounted for when they run the numbers. Also if you think your ARE seeing every animal when you are glassing you haven’t glassed very much.

    Hunt proposal, more limited archery units

    You guys really need to take a statistics class. A lot of of talk of lying on harvest reports here, but it’s in both directions, some of you saying that hunters are gonna lie to say they didn’t kill to push for more tags issued and some saying the opposite. If it’s a real issue and it’s actually happening, then one side of the other needs to be of statistical importance. Also how does a mandatory survey keep you from lying? I take them annually in Utah and NM when I’m lucky enough to draw and you could easily lie on either. To suggest that harvest surveys are the holy grail is missing a massive piece of the puzzle. They also have error in their population surveys, so you account for both errors in your statistics when you crunch the numbers. That’s how it works. The only other option would be to hire 50,000 people do drive every patch of cover while the helicopter hovers over to make sure they count EVERY deer. It’s impossible so you count what you can and you use historical data to calculate your true numbers. Same goes for hunter harvest. If they’re really so worried about this alleged rampant lying then they would have to have mandatory check in, and literally have them on every major road accessing areas. It’s simply not possible. They manage archery OTC opportunity based on rifle success in the unit. So with their current management plan, the success and numbers of OTC hunters is actually statistically unimportant regardless of how much it bunches y’all’s panties. The NR numbers are an obvious concern, and even as a NR I would agree with you guys on that going to draw, even if it’s only symbolic. HOWEVER, everything comes back to the numbers when it comes to wildlife management, and the fact of the matter is the 390 deer the NR OTC archers killed is statistically unimportant when spread across a big of an areas as the OTC units cover.

    WTS: Kuhl Pants - Renegade New

    I loved my Kuhl pants. Thought I’d found my go to until those punks sent a truck load of outerwear to the terrorists at the DAPL protest and publicized the heck out of it. That being said. These are already bought and paid for so bump for a good deal!!
