Hunting season

OK.

I like to kill animals. I posted this in the Misc. section, to see what everybody's hunting plans are for the fall/winter.

I am heading to Montana for Elk and Mule deer, then to PA, IN, NY, for deer, NJ for Bear, then back to MT for lion....

Who else on here likes to hunt!

Wow, quite a season planned. I'm heading down the road with my bow tomorrow and Sunday for some tree stand zen.

I like to hunt as well. My perfect season would driving into West Philly for an afternoon with about 1000 rounds,...

Seriously though, if you're hunting bear, PM for a sweet spot in north central Pa. They average 500+ pound Black bear yearly. I know a few years ago they pulling 613-625 lb monsters.

Do you need a special stamp?

For the general area's you can buy a tag 5 or 6 days before you plan to hunt. Special areas require a drawing. I have been trying for 3 years. It's a tough hunt.... and I won't take a female cat..... It is a weather game with cats and the winters have not been normal for the past two years....

Not to pollute the thread with my tree hugging sensibility but I see killing for entertainment as wasteful and a bit twisted. I guess it's the times we live in.

I love to hunt.

I have parties all winter long at my house... butchering parties (when i bring home bulk meat or a whole deer), sausage parties (when all the wives pack sausage...no joke), smoking parties (when we smoke the sausage).... It's a great time.

My shed becomes a butcher house in the winter.....

Lions

I think I was thinking about the MGM lion and not a mountain lion.
I'm just a sissy with that stuff. My wife can shoot a 3" pattern at 25 yards with her Colt Python or King Cobra.
My best bet is to throw the gun and hope I hit something.
In the seventies I spent a week bear hunting in Maine with friends. Unless a bear walked across the card table and knocked over the bottle of peppermint schnapps he was pretty safe.

I have been bowhunting most of my life. My hunting partner got an elk with a bow this year. That was a fun day.

I am jealous of your Montana hunt. I applied for Antelope there this year, but didn't get drawn. I am hunting NW PA for a week though and Arizona for Quail a couple times.

I am out in liberal Cal now. You will have better luck with a lottery than the hunting lottery here....

Love to hunt. Killed an 8pt on opening day with my bow. Will hunt in Wisconsin, Tennessee, Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama this year.

If I'm going into the woods I'd rather have my bike with me or my 90. And if I'm going to MT it will be in the middle of winter with my board and heading to the hills. That being said, this weekend I shoot some guns at a buddy's club not all that far from tjslaughters location. It was a lot of fun and I'd like to go out and experience a real hunt someday. But would feel pretty shitty if I didn't at least try to eat what was shot.

It seems to me the real hunters will use a much of the animal as they can - see Slaughter's post - so there seems to be more than just the entertainment of killing. I can also see us, as humans, hurt animals more with urban sprawl as evident of the number of deer that can be seen bouncing through peoples' yard even during the day in this area and killed by cars hitting them. But I see what you're saying and agree if it's done in a wasteful and twisted way.

I use as much of the meat as possible. Airline fees have been making it expensive lately. I take care of friends and family first. Then meat goes to my local chapter for Ducks Unlimited for fund raising dinners (for wildlife conservation efforts). After that I will offer it to the land owners that I hunt on. Last but not least I will pay to have meat packaged for the local homeless shelters. I guess game meat beats getting canned chili or mac and cheese.


Anyway heading out to Montana on Tuesday for a week to chase Mule Deer and Elk!

That's cool. Is there much demand for bear and mountain lion meat?

...
I won't get into a public discussion on hunting edible game and non-edible game. If the state will sell me a license I feel they have done their homework. I spend countless hours talking with biologist and that manage the areas I hunt and I know how and if I am impacting the areas positively or negatively.

On another note NJ bear meat is OK. Alaska bear meat is better as they have a better diet. Never killed a MT. Lion yet....

I'd love to go hunting... I've never been and don't own a gun though.

Anybody in the DC area want a tag-along? Wifey and I LOVE venison.

I do this, but I never get one in season (ie trying to kill me).
