Hunting takes a good deal of effort, skill and hard work!


Nothing beats being up in the high country on a crisp fall day...


I knew I had company up there too...


Not everyone was happy to see me up on the mountain


Sadly the few Elk I managed to spot were way, Way, WAY... out of range... and the bustards knew it too !


My wife's Draw comes up next week so we have one more chance to fill our freezer...
But I still say a bad day hunting is still better than a good day at work...


Unless you have the wrong sort of hunting buddy that is....

Poor little Elk


But I'd rather see you feed yourself like that than supporting the cruel processed meat industry.

Yup and lot's healthier than eating the mystery meat they serve in Big Mac's and McRibs.
GMO's and now Almost 500 Foods Contain The 'Yoga Mat' Compound. Should We Care?

With your statement, I would assume you are a strict vegan?

You think painlessly dropping an animal, for food, after it has lived a completely natural life is cruel?
Are you aware of how they die naturally?
They get old and arthritic, their teeth rot, they suffer horribly until they succumb to the elements or a big kitty rips their throat out with its teeth.
Go eat some tofu ya pansy.

Oh leave him be...
If he wants to get Mad Cow, Steroid and antibiotics enhanced supper beef... more power to him...
but he is rather uninformed in he thinks a clean kill from a skilled hunter is cruel...

I mean what I do is a much nobler and humane end ...than what happens to those critters who end up in a feedlot...

That picture is from a couple years back... I never got a shoot off...

anyway the story with the cat is no one knew he was there... didn't see, hear, smell or anything else... wasn't until we all got back to town and looked over the photos we took and went....Day-am... where did he come from?

Much scientific study goes into determining how many hunting permits are issued. If herds overbreed, the entire population suffers.
Hunters actually contribute to creating larger herds of healthier animals.

7mm wsm browning a-bolt and my skinning knife... that's all...
I've been told the cats and bears have learned to follow the hunters...

we all field dress our deer and elk and they just wait for us to do our thing then once were gone they come in for a easy meal...

Is there any open season on mountain lions in Colorado? I never ate any carnivore, but I have read old accounts saying that cougar is similar to veal.

That is interesting. Did you know that Snopes debunked that picture?

Not saying you're tellign fish(hunting) stories, but you could easily prove this was you by taking a quick cell phone "selfie", even a few years of aging wouldn't cause that much difference in ID'ing your current photo to the old one.

You may be right, but the writing style indicates it was him this happened to, he typed this out uses "I" and "We". Although he doesn't directly say it is not him, he did include it with pictures he took while hunting.

....Or maybe he just forgot to mention that this was not him and that he found the picture on the inter-webs.

Very interesting indeed!

@ OP : So this is definately you in the photo with the Elk and big cat?

Thanks for clarifying in order to avoid confusion as I am curious now...

Kindest respects
