I just read some of the other posts in this thread regarding Jesus driving a ford. If I were capable of working a miracle to fix it everytime it broke down I'd probably drive a Ford too. But since I can't, I drive a Chev. And I agree that a Ford would be the best way to move a flock of sheep across a river - all that rattling and banging would scare anything. :smile:

:smile: Saskie, I'm liking you better all the time. I'm a Chevy truck kind of guy myself.

Having said that, I have taken on a new golf course job and the employer is buying me a new truck. Guess what it is? A damn Ford!!! An F-350 4x4 diesel. Luckily the maintenance is part of the deal or I wouldn't have accepted. Wink

The only good Ford is a free one. razz

I'm in the wrong line of work...we were getting excited about a 2.5% raise. I think I should take up golf - LOL. On that note - congrats to Mike Weir for winning at Augusta today. First Canadian ever!

Well I didn't think Ex's chevy comments would go uncontested forever.... :smile:

The moving is a good point and I think it plays an even bigger role when someone is moving from an area that has a lot of public land to a region with limited public land. Working up connections to hunt on private land in region where your new can be challenging.

Interesting. I was more worried about offending Christian sensibilities. But I suppose there are some religions out there (i.e. Chevyism) that are more insecure about the doctrinal basis underpinning their lives.

I wholeheartedly agree about the comments regarding moving. I move a lot, and it's always a challenge finding places to hunt and people who know a thing or two about the area. Most of my moves are on about a 3 year cycle. If I don't get on the ball right away, the first year slips away out of priorities and not knowing the area. The third year starts prep for the next move, and brings concerns about what to do with the freezer full of meat.

One BIG thing that would help would be better resources around the country for helping hunters move into a new area -- more access to information, points of contacts, etc. Unfortunately, the nature of our sport makes us a bit leery of recruiting people to hunt where we do.

Saskie As far as the mags go when some guy brings them to my camp I use them to start the fire if I don't get ticked of and through them in the fire.You should form your own opinions. not pass on what you read.
Liberal teaching to are kids in school in my opinion is the biggest reason for the fall in hunting numbers.

Jesus was perfect therefore He would drive only the BEST which would be chevy!!! Although I believe His taste ran more towards wine than beer. But since He spent most of His time with the poor and sinners today He might have prefered beer, since that's what most people drink.

My question is that if we all evolved from scum to plants to animals to apes to humans and we can't eat meat cuz we are related to all animals and it would be cannibalizm then we can't eat plants or fish or even pond scum cuz we're all brothers and sisters!! OH!! brother, fly I'm so sorry but I must kill you *splat* oh and you sister mosquito... *slap...squish* OH my, GOOD Grief!! Help!! help!! someone!! I stepped on a weed!! I think I killed it!! Cry :cry: Cry

Now there is a flame war waiting to happen! If Jesus preferred beer would that have been:

Coors?
Bud?
Keystone? (God forbid)
Labatt?
Guinness?

Deep thoughts.... pondering a divine brew....

Jesus supported families so that would mean that He also would support unions so He would have to drink Milwalkie. I think He's probably gonna laugh hysterically if we start fighting over what brand of beer He would drink!! I mean He IS the Son of God after all and here we are talking about what kinda truck He would drive & what brand of beer He would drink!! o.O Really!! He probably wouldn't care what He was drinking or what He was riding in as long as He could minister but it probably would be a truck so He could stand in the bed to get above the crowd!!
