that's why I buy license and tag every year: (photo bomb)
Last year, this was 100 pounds of beef I didn't have to go to the store and buy:
Already have my buck picked out this season. I have a choice of 2...I know where they hang out, I know where they hide:
like I was saying:
It's the bigger one in above pic. It took a week of tracking after he retreated to the hills at the start of hunting season.
jk enjoy your dinner
What? That's not gore. Gore is the field dressing that took place right after snapping that pic.
Seriously though, I really hate killing animals. It gets harder the older I get. Whoever says there is "sport" in hunting is
delusional. There is absolutely no sport in killing anything. Not ever. I take one buck a year to do my part in
population control. The population has more than reached critical mass. They are overpopulated and becoming destructive and
when they get like that, they breed catastrophic disease that wipes them out. That doesn't even consider this:
This wreck cost me 10 grand. It cost the insurance company the same. Everyone's insurance goes up as a result. This was cause by a deer in the roadway.
The population needs to be controlled. A doe is responsible for 2-3 births a year, a buck can provide 50-60 births a year.....the horny bastards!
So, I suck it up, squeeze the trigger and do my part. The meat is a side benefit and a lot healthier than store bought.
So that would have never happened just because we build roadways through their natural habitat, That's what you are saying? I hear the same BS from deer/elk hunters up here. "There's too many! Im just doing my part."
How about slowing down?
BS? I suppose that living in SoCal or Utah gave you some real life experience on the subject
of wildlife management?
That wreck was at 30 mph.
It happens to 1 car a day on that 1 mile stretch of road and 10-12 times a day regionally.
All are considered no-fault accidents which means you get to help pay for it through higher insurance premiums.
Like I said, the population needs to be controlled. There's a city called Ashland (assland) 45 miles south of here.
They are all anti hunting and liberal as they can be.
This year the deer took over. And the residents expect the city to do something about it.
that sucks, being a no fault state, whats the point of insurance? to cover the other party basically? such a damn scam.. i've still never tried venison, but i will one day.. i've only heard good things
Don't get me wrong. it's not the animals that create any imbalances. It's the fact that people are on the planet. We build roads in 'natural habitat" because there are humans. Deer, coyotes, cougars, bears and thousands of animal species clash with humans because there are humans. What's the solution? To go all Hitler on everyone that isn't ourselves? meanwhile, in a medium density zone (like here)
there are scenes like this:
People are here to stay. What's the solution?
I don't live way out in the stix, I live within 4.5 miles of town. The fact remains that it's all out of balance. Any real life suggestions as to how to do something about it other that say hunting is "BS" would be appreciated. I'll give people this: There are ass wipes out there that kill just to kill. They don't give two shitz about game management and just want to shoot something. but saying that all hunters fall into that category is as much narrow thinking as saying all Black people are gang bangers.
