But a fisherman holding up his catch is ok? A deer hunter posing with a buck ok?


As a hunter myself I can say that doing this is both childish and silly. They might as well curtsy.


Why? They pay a #load to do this. People take photos as mementos.



You are an Eskimo. I knew it!


Just an internet pic. I live only 2 hours from the Falls though.


Or wait, I cant tell your dimensions, are you one of the Little Mushroom People of Nova Scotia?


I AM from NS. BTW you are correct about "mushroom people" there.

I hunt with a bow and the whitetails typically aren't to curious.


I have thought about doing this just to give myself some kind of challenge.

Do you find it more challenging to hunt with a bow versus a rifle?

What kind of bow do you use?


Its far more challenging you have to be much closer and therefore much quieter.....

Its a waiting game more than stalking

Big difference in a beautiful waterfall and a dead creature wouldn't you agree?

Unless you find dead animals to be beautiful.



No difference if you've spent thousands to have your vacation. THAT was the point I was making.

Reduced range and knockdown power. However it's warmer (I'm a sissy to the cold). Much more proficiency is needed and upkeep of the skills to be deadly.

I would think so.

I have a Browning tornado.

Great! Now I am wondering what giraffe meat tastes like.

I have had some damn good tasting vegey burgers.

My issue is that when I count the calories and add up the nutritional value of the amount of vegetables I would need to stay healthy , I just can't afford it.

Eating (tasty yes) meat is just cheaper.

LMAO, its a waiting game bow hunting north of 210lbs. Smaller guys can generally tend to crouch and creep pretty good with a little practice. Guys like me...too much gravity for the twigs on the ground. A tree stand works well if I have to use a stand for bow, otherwise a ground stand works fine for rifle.

Well you're a crafty resourceful guy... Be a cool evening project or weekends.... And make some good videos for the survival forums!

That would be fun indeed.

I wonder how much distance is possible.

It's been fun watching this exchange. But I wanted to chime in about the taste of Giraffe meat. I don't know what it tastes like, but this came to mind when I read your post:

The Humr people of Sudan consume the drink Umm Nyolokh; which is created from the liver and marrow of giraffes. Umm Nyolokh often contains D M T and other psychoactive substances from plants the giraffes eat such as Acacia; and is known to cause hallucinations of giraffes, believed to be the giraffes' ghosts by the Humr.
Wikipedia
So, if you eat a big slab of Giraffe liver, you might hallucinate about the animal running through the grasslands of the Serengeti. That would be a little strange.

Now imagine eating a nice, tender, juicy piece of beef liver and then start hallucinating about the beef's perspective as it walks down the chute to the slaughterhouse. I think that would be disturbing.

Really?

Have you ever tried? Tracking/Hunting is an art, and it's not an easy one. Some can make it look easy, but it, most assuredly isn't.

Killing, now? In this context, is easy. But don't confuse the two. They aren't the same.

Comes elk hunting sometime for a week in idaho w me, and that's after I've scouted for months beforehand


...and get skunked. God, that's happened so often to me, over the years. Oddly enough, I have better success when I don't scout the area before hand... I just go out and hunt.

Elk in the Oregon Blues. White Tail deer, just about everywhere.

White tail deer being the poster child of what over the top control of hunting does, after, of course, removing it's natural predators--cougars and wolves.
