Obsessions are always overwhelming

My name is forsyther, I like hunting, but big game hunting is the one that I like the most. Some people do not dare for it as they do not have any courage for it. If you are an amateur, you have to really sharpen your skills before you leave out for any great hunting expedition.

    I just sharpen my knives so I can sharpen sticks.
  • BigslugBigslug Senior Member Posts: 8,458 Senior Member
    And be sure to sharpen your wits as well. That part's important. Just don't scrape off too much skull on the grindstone.

    Huh?

    Tell us more, forsyther? What kind of big game hunting do you do that requires such courage?

    BTW, welcome to the forum.

    Thanks for the tip. It's not everyone who will share their hunting secrets.

    Its so much more fun when they continue to spout their endless knowledge, at least then we get to toy with them.

    Pfft! Lions, tigers, and bears aren't scary to hunt. Hunting the Bugblatter Beasts of Traal will scare the bejeezus out of you! :silly:

    Deer hunting of course. Crawling on your belly with your double barrel shotgun.......

    Well....with the exception of Jerry, I can tell you guys have never had to shoot your way out of a hostile dogtown. I'm not ashamed to admit I stained many a pair of pants back in the day. Only a fool's not afraid.

    My hat's off to you, Linefinder. Not much cover out in those dogtowns and when they get riled . . . well, you just gotta do what you gotta do. I remember that day I was hiking by myself when this ground squirrel popped out of a hole, not more than four feet from me and man I tell you I was glad I had that 7mm Mag. You want to have enough gun when you're facing them critters down. Takes guts, too. Forsyther's right - not everybody has the courage all of us forum weenies have.

    Pfffffffft. Where I go hunting I have to be wary of crabs.......................



































    They come out of the little holes in the mud and can give your boots and waders a terrible time.............

    See the little holes in the mud next to the ducks??

    Crabs! I got crabs! No seriously, I hunted down and harvested 7 (SEVEN) bats in my house last night! Used a 9000 cal. fishing net. Talk about scarey!

    I cannot claim to be a true veteran of the wars like Mike, but he speaks truth. In 1998, I was in a two-day engagement with the same Varmint Cong, and the experience. . .changed me. The flies in the field. . .the circling vultures. . .the quick and terse directives of my spotter. . .the incessant THWOCK! of Speer soft points meeting flesh. . .and the fact that they just. . .kept. . .coming. We were about to resort to cooling the barrel of the .22-250 with our own urine when the charge finally broke.

    Fourteen years on, I'm still not right. I wake up in the night, looking up at my ceiling fan and say "San Bernardino. . .shoot. . .I'm still in only San Bernardino. Every time I think I'm gonna wake up back in Grand Junction. . ."

    Has the added benefit of giving the little varmints a target to aim for, keeps 'em distracted.

    Forsyther, you from Georgia? There is both a city and county called Forsyth.
    We don't have much big game here as the deer are little but we have hogs, gators, and mosquitos that are world class.
