I do a bit of hunting around the area, mostly pest control. So that's rabbits, magpies and wallaby's. But I'm hoping to step up to pigs, goat and deer shortly. I may need to buy a new gun for deer and right now id rather save my money.

I also do quite a bit of duck shooting when the season is here as well. But most of the shooting I've recent time is just at clay pigeons.

When I was like 11 or 12 my mom left me alone with my Native American uncle for a weekend at our house, which is out in the mountains. I had my .22 there, but no other guns. We had deer that would come up to the back porch all of the time. My uncle decided we were going to kill one (illegally) because backstrap is awesome. This sounded like a grand ole time to me, and couldn't wait.

A doe (yes, a doe) was laying underneath a tree on the neighbors property above us. They were not home so my uncle decides he's gonna get it. After a well placed shot, that missed by about three feet, the deer started to run off. *POW* *POW* *POW*....deer keeps runnin. We track the bastard all over the side of the mountain and 21 shots from my .22 later, poor bastard finally dies. Luckily for the deer, I think about 19 of those never hit shit except for dirt. My uncle wouldn't let me shoot because "We need to make sure we get it with this next shot."

When my mom came home to a doe carcass being carved up on the dining room table, she was not impressed. She threw out the heart and liver as a punishment to my uncle. The backstrap was great.

Many of you probably think I am black because of my avatar, but the truth is, that I am white trash. High class white trash.

Yeah, that's why I need a bigger gun. The people I hunt with would frown on that kind of story. They wouldn't even like my going with my .223 because the chance of only wounding it would be too high.

Even though they are out to kill, it would be considered cruel. Its a very respect for the land kind of sport when you get serious. And anyone that is willing to make the game harder by hunting with a crossbow/bow is alright by me.
Altho, maybe that is because I make it hard for myself when hunting small game as I use a lever action, iron sights .22 Magnum. So getting a kill is harder for me than my friend with his .22 3x9 scooped Ruger

My story is blasphemy to a real hunter. I would never do that now.

Many years in Connecticut we had overpopulation of deer. One of my buds hit two of them on his motorcycle. We would blind them with headlights then try to jump on to ride them from the car.

Did that ever work? Sounds like a good crazy stunt that would break a few bones.

For maybe 10 feet if you can get near enough. Ironically the dude who was good at it was the same dude that hit deer on his bike. He hit the second deer while riding with a cast from the first deer accident.

I grew up fishing a lot and just started getting into hunting the past couple of years, I going moose hunting in early November with an Eskimo guy I work with, I can't wait because moose meat is the most delicious red meat I've ever eaten.

If there's one thing that Canada is good for its the great hunting and fishing, there's some places that off amazing fishing such as the Queen Charlotte Islands off coastal BC (salmon), northern Saskatchewan and Labrador (Salmon and trout). The hunting is also great, especially moose, elk, caribou, deer, etc.

The part I like best is eating the animal, a moose can feed a family for a long time!


RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle - salmonfella - 01-28-2013 01:57 PM

Been fishing and hunting for years here in Ireland.Its good to know that canada is going to be great for fishing anyone ever fish the bow river in Calgary? how ye get on?


RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle - Cincinnatus - 01-28-2013 02:11 PM

Haven't hunted deer in Ohio before but here we're only allowed to use muzzleloaders, bows, and shotguns with slugs. Probably gonna hunt one next season using the latter.

I need to get out fishing again soon. Gotta head a couple of hours into Kentucky though before the water is clean enough to take fish for the dinner table. When I lived in western Kentucky, our family used to hit the water around sunrise and fish for crappie until lunchtime. Come home, clean the fish, eat lunch and take a nap. Wake up around dinnertime and begin breading and frying the tasty buggers.

Recreational fishing on the Ohio River is amazing. I won't eat anything that comes out of there but catching 10-30 lb. catfish is a great way to pass a few hours and drink some beer.


RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle - Aliblahba - 01-28-2013 04:18 PM

I only hunt two things now; Dear hearts and bare asses. Banana


RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle - General Mayhem - 09-08-2015 11:23 PM

Time to bump this old thread.

I've been living in the city for about 5 years now but I get an itch to get back home every so often. My dad and I built a nice little fishing boat for the lakes up here and it's fun to go out drinking beer and catching fish. There are few things as peaceful as taking the boat out on a clear night and catching fish under the stars. It's also nice to take a girl out at night to drink wine and bang on the boat.

Once I get old and sick of the city I think I am going to move back out to the sticks and build a cabin on a lake somewhere. Living with my girl has taught me that you need to have a manly house, not just some pathetic man cave in the basement. I want a decked out place with a lot of wood and stone, maybe a hot tub out back.

I also want a setup like my grandpa had. He would go out fishing, come back with a bucket of fish and set it by the door. Then he would sit down in his chair while grandma cleaned them all and fried them up the next day. I wouldn't make a chick butcher big game but I hate cleaning fish after I get off the lake.

That's my dream hunting and fishing lifestyle.

Amen to that! I hate cleaning fish with a passion.

I grew up hunting and fishing. Was an avid waterfowl and pheasant hunter, but would also go after deer, rabbits, quail, grouse, hogs, etc.

Went hunting with my dad almost every weekend when I was a kid. After he died eight years ago it kindof died with him. I also live in New York City, and it's a huge pain-in-the-ass to try to go hunting, especially by yourself. I have a buddy in Upstate who's dying for me to teach him how to duck hunt, but I just don't have the time.

I go fishing with buddies once a year on the St. Lawrence River. Primarily smallmouth bass, which in my opinion are the funnest freshwater fish to catch. They've grown gigantic over the last five years as they've learned how to feast on an invasive species called the Goby.


RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle - Deepdiver - 09-09-2015 11:15 AM

I love New England trophy fresh water Eastern Wild Brook Trout and sea run Trout; big browns and Rainbows/Steelhead Trout as well as migratory Striped Sea Bass which grow up to 48 inches or so and keepers have to be over 28 inches snout to fork of tail.

Striped Sea Bass like water about 64F to 67F and migrate from Georgia up to the Gulf of Maine and the St. Lawrence seaway and then back down so with NH water around 70F we should see the reverse migration in a week or two once the weather and water chill.

I took up Salt Water Fly Fishing and Fly Tying classes where big burly and Alpha type guys working with all sorts of fashion forward materials tying enormous streamers to imitate baitfish LOL. However takes some special calm weather conditions or wind at your back to load and long cast a salt water fly fishing rod to the fish. When windy surf casting for stripers and blues can be great fun as you can see your surface plugs gurgling after a 150 foot to 200 foot cast and at high tide in the evening the water explodes when either a keeper Striper or Bluefish strikes. I catch an release right on to the Grill, Kill em, Chill em and Grill em.

I use grill baskets and line with lemon slices and char grill one side of the basket and lemon steam the other - a little melted butter on the char side and the flavor fresh from the sea can not be beat. Also for blues which have a more strong flavor than white flesh of striped sea bass - you can line the grill basket with foil and grill in butter and some teriyaki sauce - better than suchi or a pu pu platter!

On nice nights with a full moon and high tide just bring a container of bait clam meat and some striper rigs on your Surf Casting rod - basically a 3 oz weight on a heavy duty swivel and a steel leader if blues also running and a circle hook with a nice chunk of clam they can swallow but will set back out in their jaw. The Striper rigs have a 3 inch long foam slider float that floats the hook off the bottom so the crabs do not steal your bait and the clam flavor streams through the current so the big bull and cow stripers find your bait. Key is to let them run with the bait in their mouth a bit before you set the circle hook in their side jaw and fight on. While waiting for the migratory full moon schools of big Stripers to hit you sit back in your captains chair on the beach next to your woman and enjoy a victory Cigar and scotch chaser from your hidden pocket flask (Dumb New England Open Container laws on random beaches by towns ordinances but late at night most life guards, Townie Beach Cops and Fish And Game officers at home and not busting peoples balls about cold beer in their coolers on the beach) - beach seafood restaurants and convenience stores don't like competition.

Large sea bass or blues you just gut and lay on a filet board with a tail clamp and two filet knife strokes per side and good to go with mostly boneless filets! Also fun are the coastal river salmon runs and harbor invasion for giant schools of spawning baitfish by various tuna species which are also best grilled fresh as above! Nothing like New England in the Summer time - went to Rye harbor and a half mile away was a nice Lobstah restaurant - on Labor Day a buddy who's wife was away decided to make a Hampton beach run and I told him he flies and I buy so he drove about 80 MPH and then crawled along the beach in 92F weather - 91F today and official September heat wave first in 32 years here - anyway I was in New Hampshire fresh caught lobstah heaven, lobstah quesadillas, lobster chowder, twin shedder lobsters, fries and coleslaw with Sumttynose IPAs from a local Rye NH Brewery... then we toured the Albacore Submarine museum in Portsmouth and he was impressed - I basically felt like I died and went to Nuke Submariners heaven - lobstah, with more lobstah with lobstah tails and claws with cold beer and sub boats by the sea on a perfect sunny labor day 92F with a nice sea breeze to counter the humidity. Hoorah.


RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle - realologist - 09-09-2015 01:10 PM

I'm going fishing today. I'm in the Midwest and I'm hitting an inland lake that has a lot of blue gill, walleye and small mouth bass.

I'm hoping to catch a ton of walleye. I've been craving some fresh walleye lately and grilling it 50 feet from the water. Last time I caught about 5 walleye and 15 blue gill that were keepers. I want to reverse that this time.


RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle - Tytalus - 09-09-2015 01:12 PM

I have started learning how to hunt, and do some target shooting with my rifles. Game wise - this can bring you up a notch with (rural) women who are not impressed by city boys afraid of getting dirty. I doubt it's going to get you the lay alone, however.


RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle - Mikan - 09-09-2015 05:52 PM

The area I live in has a fairly severe deer overpopulation problem. Last year they were offering up to 9 bonus tags for deer season. I take between 1-4 deer as food animals per year. While I do enjoy spending time outdoors, I'm all business with taking deer. Efficient and fast kill with saboted deer slug, get it to the butcher(brother-in-law and his dad) then in the freezer asap. I'm much more engaged with recipes for the venison then the actual hunting. We've recently gotten into various sausage and jerked/kippered meat recipes. Venison chili remains a wintertime staple on the farm.

Bump.

Anybody been fishing this spring and summer?

Been doing a lot of crappie and bass fishing this summer and been slaying them.


RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle - General Mayhem - 07-12-2016 10:22 PM

I've been out quite a bit this year. I feel like it took forever for the spawn to hit this spring but once it did things got a lot more fun. We caught a load of crappie last weekend.

I have made an effort to expand on my fishing skills and it is really starting to pay off. I have found that I really enjoy analyzing the conditions to locate fish. I used to be one of those guys who was just out there trying to guess where the fish would be so it's very rewarding now to have some actual skill.

My girlfriend is hooked on fishing now too so my time on the lake is maximized. I taught her how to clean the fish now as well so my time cleaning is minimized. I've been slowly indoctrinating her.

There's a surprising number of hotties at the local Cabelas. Should have used boat game

I've been a few times: crappie and catfish, but also large mouth bass and pickerel for some family members who I have been fishing with. The best fishing was about a two hour drive from where I currently am.

I'm thinking about moving where there is more of a lake lifestyle (a lot of lakes and other water bodies in a local area). The recreation lifestyle in such places is unbeatable. The nice weather recreation is life-changing assuming that you have access to the right kind of lakes, and then there is ice fishing and skating in the winter.


RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle - RexImperator - 07-13-2016 06:31 AM

I don't fish but maybe I should. I could spend all day looking at stuff in Bass Pro Shops.
