and not to derail your thread daddy bear but since it seems more of a survival thread why don't we expand it to fishing also??
pretty much same rules apply to fishing as they do hunting.
and trapping also.
just a suggestion-your thread so up to you

Well here were are again... Hunting season... Since I'm moving I didn't put in for an elk tag this year so I'm reduced to sitting around the fire and telling tales of bygone days... So without really needing an excuse I thought we needed a thread to share hunting tips....
Now to kick things off I'll share one... ever since I was a kid I was taught not to hunt rabbits or squirrels until after the second snow fall... the why is here in the southwest you can get very sick maybe even die from the flea's and ticks they carry... after the second snow fall those wee beasties die and fall off and its now safe to handle the game...
So who wants to go next... maybe some one wants to talk about the effect of salt left on select trails? how about the best way to hunt turkey what with thanksgiving coming up?
