50 Photos That Perfectly Sum Up The 50 States MandatoryMan’s Redneck Watch: Idiots or Learned Helplessness? I have no class, but I can sure show it when I have to. Yes we we need to stick together as hunters but to me he clearly needed to put more effort so it looks professional and not have a carcass through someones windshield.
This looks much more realistic. Maybe 10 – 12 coyotes here and the truck could easily hold 30 more – including bubba and his 5th wheel. It wasn’t that long ago that hunters would parade their harvested moose, elk, or deer on the top of the station wagon or open ended truck bed in downtown Calgary. Now days you’d possibly get death threats. Some things have changed for the better. That was not that long ago. On the other hand, there are also some things that have, indeed, digressed.
Should we go through life anticipating that our actions may offend someone?
If it was done legally. Don’t back down and dont give an inch. Over the last few years I’ve been able to convince a good number non-hunters that hunting isn’t bad thing, by using a ‘soft’ approach. Actually, two of those non-hunters now hunt with me.
You don’t have enough imagination to see that doing so builds more antipathy towards hunting.
Mellow out and think beyond your impulses. Whoever told you your free is your enemy. I was just making the point that the only thing different in the 60’s and now with regards to parading a dead animal in/on your vehicle is society’s perception of hunting.
Personally I’d tarp it too, it’s just more tactful. Someone wearing a Hat at a funeral service for a loved one.
How would someone from another world figure that out?
Just because it’s a free country and you can, doesn’t always make it a good idea. So I take it half the people would see no reason not to build a mosque at Ground zero?
Did you mean to post on the hat thread?
We still have 20 dead coyotes(a good thing). Or does it only work one way?
Seriously though im no hunter, but would it not be wise to throw a tarp on simply to keep the fur clean?
Besides that I have no real problem with it, however my common courtesy says cover it up, only because it may upset someone.
Me thinks that it is the stubborn streak or the don’t back down or give an inch mentality on a larger scale that leads to war. Most of what they do is technically legal. They might see see the people who protest them similarly. I hang meat in a garage in a town for the first time this year. I don’t drop the deer on my lawn through the afternoon. Little kids do not have a problem dealing with this. If anything it should bring out their curiosity. I got to touch the dead animal, fur and blood.
But if you grow up sheltered and your food all comes from a grocery store or restaurant then you are distanced from death. They have become detached from that aspect of life and may be disgusted by seeing it. Would not have bothered my girls or wife.
Am I offended by the sight of a truck load of dead coyotes?
Can I understand that another reasonable person might be offended?
I’m not worried about offending the antis, they are permanently offended and don’t meet my requirement of ‘reasonable person’. It has been scientifically proven that a 308 round will not leave your property — they essentially fall dead at the fence line.
BTW I think respect and thoughtfulness is the key to both threads. Should Safeway tarp all the dead fish and cows?
Every state has its own special flavor that makes it unique.
Wherever you are, perhaps you will identify with these photos. Who is the real hero?
So, what we may see play out over the next month is a very similar harvest. Extreme long range shooting PICS. Extreme long range shooting PICS. Re: Extreme long range shooting PICS. Your visual at 2100 yards is how I see things through my scope at 500 yards. Great day on the range had a very good time smacking steel at long range.
The rest are just some pics I took, we also have everything on Video. I really need to learn how, its totally incredible watching it. How about a copy sent to Oregon. Gamedog, you should recognize the 18th hole in the 3rd pic down on the left. Kids arent cheap, and neither is buying a new house.
I put a 120 qt cooler in the back seat with my pack and put the bow on top of the cooler. If you kill a bull, strap the skull to the trunk and run a strap to hold the antlers throught the back windows. You’ll get lots of funny looks but who cares, you just killed a big bull. I used to hunt in a Geo Metro. I was actually thinking about taking a Camry out next summer on a scouting trip but wondered the same thing about trailheads. Places that locals told me I couldn’t go. And I never got stuck or scraped my oil pan off. I got into some FS roads (trails) that I was afraid to go forward, but impossible to turn around.
Be careful and get some good intel on the roads. There are plenty of roads that can get you to or near trail heads that you could make in a car. Another option is put a hitch type bike rack and get an inexpensive mtn bike.
I have a guy here at work that rides a mtn bike into the mountains in Oregon. I agree with all the above.
I’m a mechanic here in CO done my share of replacing oil pans and everything else.
I still wouldnt suggest trying four wheeling in you civic ,but I know several trail heads that wouldnt be that bad to drive too in a car and yes some of my friends use there cars for hunting.
Just use your head and know the limitations. Just keep to the limitations and you’ll be fine.
I’m sure plenty of them end up having oil pans replaced, but there is a mob of them that use their head and don’t have any problems. In CO all the main roads are good, better then most gravel roads I have been on in MT. Real trees are way to messy. When you get home, shake out the sheet and you are done.
Interesting, a 9 footer hangs out the back of my Saturn SL no prob. Ya, helps alot if you have it on a rack. Just in time for Christmas. Gorgeous sunset off of a Wisconsin lake, USA. A MUST SEE in my travel log.
Can you feel the old rustic church pews and the creeking it makes as you sit to pray?
It brings back so many memories. My brother fell under the rakes which cut the top of his head requiring many stitches. Country life on the farm. We five siblings all survived into adulthood.
Gun-toting granny Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked-off when two thugs raped her 18-year-old granddaughter that she tracked the unsuspecting ex-cons down… And shot off their testicles. And I wasn’t dumb enough to turn it in when the law changed about owning one.” Then I went in and shot the other one as he backed up pleading to me to spare him. Delp said, “especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for Mayor.” I can just hear my Mother saying this to me.
Something that you never, never wanted to hear your mom, dad or grandma say to you. Jack Jeffers photograph of chair and shoes The W. L. He died 3 years later at home with me.
You are not in the mountains. The mountains are in you. There was an old store down the road from my grandparents that was run by a man that was armless from elbows down. He was amazing and I probably stared too much as a little kid, but he was fun. I love old country stores. As a non-hunter, this affects me still nonetheless. My morning commute takes place under cover of darkness and on back-ass country roads for the first 25 miles or so. Hounds are a dime a dozen here.
And lastly, take care of your dogs. As a hunter, your advice is spot on. I like to hunt, although mostly just birds. It is one of my faves. Although, 4 or 5 Great Dane sized deer would feed me and mine for awhile.
I call it as I see it. You’ve been warned.
Lose a blogger, gain a blogger. If you don’t like it, stop reading.
A note about my pictures: Admittedly, I borrow pictures from around the Web and “customize” them for my own nefarious purposes. I don’t make any money off this blog, so it’s not a business venture, and if I borrow from Wiki or somewhere else and don’t cite the source, tough shit. All you armchair lawyers can go piss up a rope,n shit in your fists, and eat a big ole’ bag of dicks.. Motorcycle in back of car. Pictures – Mar 26, 2012. True Redneck hub-cap electric guitar. So much for health and safety. Redneck Hot Tub – I think my butt would burn. The trailer park will never miss it. Either to work-out or buy a side table.

LOL gotta do what ya gotta do.
