Re: Big Game and very smart bears

Good story Woodsman. I believed it all up until the beaver. I am suprised the bears didn't rip the plane to shreds.

Thanks Readingeye; I have always enjoyed telling tall tales such as that one. A sense of humor is a must in todays world.

Re: Big Game and very smart bears

Thanks Readingeye; I have always enjoyed telling tall tales such as that one. A sense of humor is a must in todays world.

The story was true up until I climbed the tree. After tossing my Trapper Nelson Backpack at the Griz, he sniffed it and smelled the summer sausage I had made out of Carribou; I always kept some in there for survival ; along with some other stuff. He then made himself a meal out of that, kind of shredded my backpack looking for more, and then wandered off to do more bear things. I made it to Fairwell and a friend went back with me to repair the J3; after which I flew on to McGrath.

As is the norm up there (or at least it used to be back in the 50's and 60's) I then had to embelish the story at the local pub; while someone else thought up a more outrageous story. As the saying goes: "The first liar doesn't have a chance".

Re: Big Game and very smart bears

Just believe what you want to woodsman. That's the way some people are to their own detriment. In fact I should have started the story out a little earlier. Before we saw the deer run across the meadow we heard about 4 shots coming from another group of hunters. That poor little deer didn't stand a chance. Maybe up in Alaska you can have a hunt that will take you back to your primitive ways but here in Idaho the hunting has been getting crowded for some time. You know kind of like combat fishing next to some hatchery up in Alaska but then again that would be a peta story to you. Or is that what real men do , ya dumb as.

MY my is Bushbashers widdle feelings tweaked a tad.

Sorry bud but your story branded you as a non-hunter, trying to sound like a hunter. Yours was the typical PETA horror story!

IF YOUR STORY IS REALLY TRUE, then some marksmanship classes are truly in order; as well as attending a fish and game seminar on how to handle a deer when it is down.

"That poor little deer didn't have a chance"; that is so funny! From what you wrote he had plenty of chances; a total of eight chances from the EIGHT SHOTS (according to what you wrote) that you and your fellow nimrods wasted.

Sounds like you don't know any more about hunting and fishing than you do politics bushbasher. I am not a big fan of the POTUS, although I voted for him in both elections. But the Democraps don't have a worthy opponent for POTUS. Even though I cannot afford to be a Republican, I am forced to vote that way unless I want another Democrap that lied under oath, and Hanoi Kerry consorted with the enemy during a time of war, to be POTUS. Sad part is that the extreme left has taken control of the Democraps and your leaders like the great swimmer Ken-hic-dy; it was not sex Clinton; and Hanoi Kerry; are a disgrace. So be prepared to lose again in 08 with that hag Hilary.
Oh and did you read what your hero Gore had to say about America while in Saudi Arabia???? Talk about treason....

Happy hunting to you NIMROD......ROFLMAO

Hiya Reddog;

Nope; wrong on all counts; your sarcasim is wasted. I just pointed out the silliness of bushbashers posts on hunting; what's got your undies all in a bunch anyway??

I don't drink; don't wear any kind of hat unless it's cold!

I was a hunter safety instructor for 14 years or so; I was a registered guide in Alaska for a number of years; I am a qualified marksman with pistol and rifle, and average 18 out of 20 on trap and skeet; been hunting for a little over 50 years now with bow, rifle, handgun, rifle, and shotgun; was a District Manager for Kmart, took an early retirement and went back to school for 6 years and got a Masters in Geo/Archaeology; now fully retired and spend my time hunting and fishing and working in my vegetable garden.
I was a Democrap for most of my life up until Kennedy was asassiinated; then the party went so far left and lost all their honor I was forced to become a Republican; not happy about that; but they are the lesser of two evils. Sure wish we had the old Democrats back; but not much chance of that in my lifetime...perhaps a 3rd party...again not in my lifetime. I am a veteran; did a kiddie cruise in Korea in the mid 50's; got 4 wonderful kids...3 girls and one boy and 9 grankids...all horsemen/women that enjoy hunting and fishing...I am the only one without a horse now; my knees just won't let me ride anymore sad to say. So I am just an average American; not extreme in any way; I don't BS; unless it's like my Bear Story and telling those obvious tall tales is just plain fun. When I do see someone spreading BS like bushbashers hosspucky story; why I just have to point out the facts.

We have enough idiots out there trying to stop our hunting and fishing; we have enough idiots trying to prevent us from going in the woods and backcountry; and we have enough idiots trying to take away our guns and the right to carry; as it is. We don't need idiotic stories like bushbashers to hurt our image, and give the girlie men of the world more ammunition to take away these rights and priveledges.

So that's who I am and what I stand for...don't like it??? That's your right; but I don't give a rat's butt if you do or don't.

So far I have not read any posts from you that bother me; many of your comments I agree with; a few I don't. But then you haven't told any obvious BS stories like bushbasher has; at least none that I have read.

One last thing; I don't like ILLEGAL ALIENS here in America; round them up and ship them back across the border in cattle cars. Then build a big wall; put armed troops on the border; and allow only those that immigrate to America in the LEGAL WAY!!!!!

MI CASA "NOT" YU CASA.....ILLEGALS GO HOME!

Re: Big Game and very smart bears

woodsman1st ------------------- There was a time in this country when putting meat on the table was a necessity , it got you through the winter . That is not the case anymore .
I find it arrogant to take a high power rifle and end a wild animals life for sport . It's like bullfighting , another great sport . Why people think they must kill something to prove there dominance over it is to me childish .
I am a gun "nut" and I run into the great white hunter all the time , I usually just ignore them . But your hip shot at bushbasher and the PETA reverence was asinine . You want to go kill something go right ahead , hell run over the neighbors cat on the way out of town if thats what rings your bell . But if I don't want to tag along I'm sure you'll understand .

Re: Big Game and very smart bears

Understood Reddog; that is your opinion and I can respect it for the most part because you are not putting forth halfassed storys about make believe hunting trips.

My oldest daughter no longer hunts because, while she enjoys the hunt, she does not like the killing part. However she does like to eat venison, and other wild game, when properly cared for after the kill. She does still like to go fishing though.

That was a great site; funny as hell. I lovc starting the day off with a good laugh. I sent it to my middle daughter who is a blond.

Take care.

PS It was not a hip shot. lol
