Riffle Hunter's in the wood's

you better stay out of the wood's unless you want to get shot by some drunk riffle hunter" .

Riffle Hunter's in the wood's

Just to set thing's straight, Im not a riffle hunter hater. I watch riffle hunting shows on tv and some times enjoy them. "Some Times". And I have alot of good buddy's that riffle hunt. I am trying to get the point accross that we as hunter's need to step up and realize the ever growing number of un educated hunter's. Like Romey say's, bow hunter's seem to have better ethic's than most riffle hunter's. It's true. Im not just saying that cause i'm a bow hunter im saying it cause it's a no brainer. Romey has some good points. As for the MEAT HUNTER out there saying he only is hunting because he want's to eat. Well I have been eating my Deer, Elk and Bear all from this year and last year every day almost. I alway's am hunting for meat. But that does not steer me from taking the respectible animal's. I shot a 4 1/2 year old mule deer, a close to 300lb black bear and, a spike elk. All of wich are for good managment and great meat in the freezer. So Dont try and tell me that your 90lb black bear and your spike deer is just for meat and it's fine cause it's not. It's not ok in the un writen book of ethics. I like most other ethical riffle/ bow hunter's care about my future in hunting and the well being of our local game. So don't get all offensive and think i'm just out to attack riffle hunters. That being said. I would like to apologize to anyone who may be an ethical hunter that might have thought different. I want everyone to teach people that have no clue about this kind of thing and get hunters more educated in ethics and purpose.

guys this thread of posts is getting no where and quick. bigbustking has his own ideas of what needs to be done and what is actually happening, just as we all have ours so lets not try to persuade each other into our own oppinions. that's what makes everyone unique, bigbustking may have a idea that I never thought of or an oppinion for that matter. and thats whats awesome about oppinions is that no one can tell you your own oppinion. im a rifle hunter for sure and always will be but i understand game conservation and the circle of life too. yes i just did a lion king quote. i mean i took an awesome 4 point mule deer earlier this october which i posted about with a pic. that deer was 300+ yards out but i got him in one shot. and why did i mention that are you asking, because i took time to learn my rifle to where its almost second nature for me to guess ranges and be deadly accurate. which alot of rifle hunters dont do, which leads to a deer or other animal being shot 50 times like bigbustking was mentioning. so do i think more rifle hunters should be more educated then they are. yes i do. its like Ted Nugent said who is my hero by the way " it is a irresponsibility for an american to not carry a handgun and protect him or herself, and foremost not to learn the action, weight, how many pounds of force to pull the trigger, the accuracy and so forth of the gun." however people will be people and they will do what they want no matter what. so i guess you just have to let them be. unless their poachers, then turn them in. Shame on You!

I have been hunting since I was 8 or 9 my dad was a logger so was my gandpa and his grandpa deer elk bear and moose have always been and always will be the table fare of our home we have hunted with all forms of hunting methods archery muzzeloader and modern firearm and we have all seen good and bad people of all kinds, I have seen some who poach for food and some who poach to poach but it would take a new kind of idiot to take a poached game to a butcher myself i dont trust the butcher therefore I have always done my own just like my dad and granpa. And now my sons and grandsons will too. My guess is that the bow hunter that sees Rifle hunters with game in there trucks is just what i call and "Angry Archer" maybe a victim of the new gun laws and he is forced to hunt with a bow?

Your right on the Angry Archer. But it's not being mad about not killing anything because I have shot my elk and black bear this year and I'm for sure getting a trophy deer because I take the time to pre scout, prepare my gear and not just buy a tag and go out and blast somthing. The more days go on this season the more I really have realized how many guy's do this. My land lord has hunted in the past but has not in quite some time and when I went over to his place to show him my new bow sight he must have got a wild hair cause the next morning he went out and baught a tag and on his way to his "honey Hole" he called it, he shot a 3x4 buck that had ran infront of his truck and into a field where he could get out and walk into the field and make a shot. Now is that really hunting? I know alot of guy's do this kind of spot and shwoop hunting that is mostly "legal" but vary unsafe and not vary sportsman like. I say unsafe because who knows if there is another hunter in that area and you just jump out and shoot a deer towards his direction. Go on Youtube.com and seach deer poacher or, deer decoy and you will see what im talking about. All I try and get accross is safe, ethical, sportsman like new age hunting. Not this old day's kill all the deer in the wood's like they used to do and prop them on the car hood. Once again I have alot of buddy's that riffle hunt that I give loads of crap for but i'm not saying we should ban it or anything like that. I just want people to be more educated when it comes to being an ethical sportsman.

sorry guys, but a spike is just as legal as a four point,(at least where I hunt) and I'm not going to tell my boy and his buddy that they can't shoot the legal animal that they have dreamed about finding, and put the time and effort into finding. Legal animals don't always come easily and legal opportunities, especially for younger hunters can also be rare. I want kids to stay interested in the sport and hunt ethically, and if they are able to tag a deer it does help them remain interested instead of making them bored and withdrawn. But the smile on a young hunters face with his or her first spike is just as broad as my smile with the four point on my wall that took me 25 years to find. I think that everyone in this forum, tho I am new, knows right from wrong, bad taste stuff, meaning bloody pickup sides and so on is very wrong. And with all this poaching going on, all huntersare getting a bad name. I let it be known to anyone hunting with me that if you harvest an illegal animal I will turn you in myself, no matter how good of a friend you are. Sorry, my 2 cents worth turned into 5 dollars.
