2018-08-16 18:53:45 UTC

I would love to go on an elk hunt one day

2018-08-16 19:19:27 UTC

I’ll come kill one with you mate

2018-08-16 19:19:32 UTC

When and where?

2018-08-16 19:20:04 UTC

I’ll make him into summer sausage and eat it over years

2018-08-16 19:20:22 UTC

Still have 4 sticks from my last buck several years back lmao

2018-08-16 19:20:39 UTC

I think it was 7 years ago actually

2018-08-16 19:36:13 UTC

Archery is 08/25-09/23. I have a tag along for my rifle hunt. I’m in Colorado Springs.

2018-08-16 19:36:59 UTC

@Louis Loire - NY come with next year!

2018-08-16 19:37:57 UTC

I’m not currently set up to process my own animal, outside of steaks I gotta bring it to a butcher.

2018-08-16 19:42:14 UTC

I also hunt birds. Grouse, ducks, geese, doves, and pheasants. I have a 6 month old pointer that will be ready to hunt this year.

2018-08-16 20:11:35 UTC

I got two does last season was plenty for me. Me and my buddy have been wanting to do an elk hunt for years.

2018-08-16 20:14:20 UTC

Nice man. This will be my third year going for elk. No meat yet. I’ve shot deer with my bow. And rifle deer is easy mode.

2018-08-16 21:41:30 UTC

Y'all get them mule deer out there

2018-08-17 03:36:55 UTC

Colorado mostly has mule deer. Some white tails that stick to river bottoms.

2018-08-18 15:06:50 UTC

Do they taste/butcher any different?

2018-08-18 15:07:30 UTC

They looked small when I saw them out there or at least compared to white tail.

2018-08-19 11:32:26 UTC

Mule deer are pretty much the same size as the white tails here. I also think they taste just as good as white tails, which I had grown up hunting.

2018-09-02 23:39:36 UTC

This thing is so sick my dudes...


2018-09-02 23:40:02 UTC

Just got it the other day, tried it out...good napper.

2018-09-03 00:24:35 UTC

I love Eno hammocks great product

2018-09-03 03:23:57 UTC

I have an Eno double nest. Very cozy.

2018-09-04 13:33:05 UTC

Did some early morning dove hunting.


2018-09-04 14:09:18 UTC

@Der Seeteufel - SD gonna eat them?

2018-09-04 14:21:53 UTC

Yeah of course. We're just finishing up cleaning them.

2018-09-04 14:23:23 UTC

Don't get much meat off them, but it's good eating.


2018-09-04 14:50:38 UTC

Man, I love dove. Smoke it or cook it up like squirrel or coon, ummm so good.

2018-09-04 15:12:27 UTC


2018-09-04 15:49:29 UTC


2018-09-04 17:46:44 UTC


2018-09-06 00:28:00 UTC

I thought you guys might like this. It's my boss's trophy wall.


2018-09-06 00:47:43 UTC

This is my trophy wall. It's a bit smaller.


2018-09-07 15:43:59 UTC

That's legit

2018-09-07 22:28:27 UTC

Nice! Dove season has started here too. I’m going Sunday for them. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

2018-09-07 22:29:03 UTC

Both are beautiful walls.

2018-09-17 04:09:08 UTC



2018-09-17 04:09:39 UTC

what about city camouflage?

2018-09-17 04:09:47 UTC

i would imagine none of these would work well in a city

2018-09-17 04:11:56 UTC




2018-09-17 04:13:17 UTC

@YourFundamentalTheorum I think in a city you'd be better off trying to blend in with the populace. Camo would stick out. If you had to disappear and drop your gear wrist case scenario I think you'd want to be indistinguishable

2018-09-17 04:18:46 UTC


2018-09-17 15:42:31 UTC

look at police uniforms plain black blue or grey is best for cities @YourFundamentalTheorum

2018-09-17 15:46:23 UTC

unironically a plain black or grey hoodie is best for urban, weather permitting. Looters and/or police may be attracted to anyone tactical or bushy.

2018-10-01 03:57:27 UTC

My fav city camo is "grey man" like the guys above say, blend in.

2018-10-01 03:57:37 UTC


2018-10-01 03:59:30 UTC

Getting some skittles

2018-10-01 03:59:35 UTC


2018-10-01 04:00:09 UTC

I recently bought a new comfy but cheap grey t-shirt and grey hoodie for flyering. Hopefully this week I'll get to try them out.

2018-10-01 04:00:29 UTC

And a plain hat, no logo

2018-10-01 04:00:43 UTC

I have a well used black hoodie from American Apparel. Rarely put the hood on.

2018-10-01 04:00:46 UTC

Aviators might be a bit much. Not trying to ape Uncle Ted's look.

2018-10-01 04:01:11 UTC

I look like an Ayy lmao with ayyviators anyway

2018-10-01 04:01:38 UTC

I use obnoxious colored cheap sunglasses...people see me and think, "who's this guy think he is, lol, okay Hollywood" then the poster goes up.

2018-10-01 04:02:00 UTC

My outfit says, "I'm a local"

2018-10-01 04:02:06 UTC

The art of distraction lol

2018-10-01 04:02:35 UTC

My glasses say, "This guy is pretentious, I'm going to ignore him and laugh."

2018-10-01 04:03:39 UTC

The nice thing about the glasses, is that they are so blatant, and the outfit is so not memorable, I can take them off and they'll be looking for the guy with the neon glasses with nothing else to go on.

2018-10-01 04:04:01 UTC

That's my take on it.

2018-10-01 04:04:51 UTC

Grey hoodie can work well, depends how you're built. I carry posters in a laptop bag I got at the apple store years ago, smallest messenger bag I could find.

2018-10-01 04:04:56 UTC

I look like a yuppie.

2018-10-01 04:05:52 UTC

Also, women remember shoes very well, I try to make mine as plain and uncharacteristic as possible.

2018-10-01 04:06:24 UTC

common black chucks in near-new condition, or comfy vans

2018-10-01 05:08:37 UTC

No red New Balance? (kidding)

2018-10-01 05:08:52 UTC

I need to get some.

2018-10-01 05:09:11 UTC

I was joking because that's the unofficial uniform of the DS book clubs

2018-10-01 05:09:23 UTC


2018-10-02 19:46:05 UTC

Has anyone killed an Elk? This is my third season going after these beautiful animals. I went archery hunting, and had zero luck. I’m going with a rifle in November. Just wondering what your guys experience is.

2018-10-31 21:35:07 UTC

Cool job site for conservation and ecological work - https://wfscjobs.tamu.edu/job-board/

2018-10-31 21:36:35 UTC

@Felden - CO No, never. The population is growing in SW OK, thanks to a booming population at a National Wildlife Refuge and expansion outward, but I never have taken one. Better have friends to help you with the work afterwards, do you have an ATV or some kind of cart?

2018-10-31 22:54:29 UTC

@Wood-Ape - OK/MN where I hunt, no wheels are allowed. Only humans and hoof. I have to quarter out my animal in 2-3 trips.

2018-10-31 23:02:37 UTC

Ah, a wilderness area. Imagine thinking horses are less disruptive than bikes. -__-'

2018-11-01 14:14:44 UTC

Lol yeah. Those piles of horse apples cause more disruption than bikes.

2018-11-15 04:34:49 UTC


2018-11-15 04:35:09 UTC

About 30 of these guys walk into my yard every day.

2018-11-15 04:35:34 UTC

One of the new jakes has a huge beard

2018-11-15 05:05:41 UTC

Neat! Huge flocks spotted here in SW OK

2018-11-15 21:13:11 UTC

I love elk hunting with full bars of LTE. πŸ˜€


2018-11-16 19:12:00 UTC

I already posted this in farming but I thought you rangers might like it too.


2018-11-16 19:46:07 UTC

Nice buck.

2018-11-16 23:16:22 UTC


2018-11-19 00:55:19 UTC

My cousin got him.


2018-11-19 00:57:04 UTC

With his legs up behind his head like that it looks like he's just chillin.

2018-11-19 01:02:36 UTC

So relaxed

2018-11-26 06:01:16 UTC

Constantinople not Istanbul


2018-11-26 06:28:30 UTC

Looks like dinner was running late.

2018-11-27 22:40:39 UTC

Always remember boys nature is dangerous. This is my dad's dog. He's fine btw.


2018-11-27 22:45:19 UTC

porcupined! poor doggo

2018-11-27 22:51:05 UTC

You might not be surprised to hear that this isn't the first time he's picked a bad fight. He's been skunked twice. He's a monster hunting dog though. When he was younger he used to catch pheasants by himself.

2018-11-30 02:09:06 UTC

Diverse and vibrant Asian ticks

2018-11-30 14:17:45 UTC

3rd world diseases are part of their culture bigot

2018-12-08 05:50:53 UTC

I may have revealed my power level in my last paper of my last class.

"As usual, the human element is most tricky. As the postmodern, banal, suburban sprawl consumes all that was once good in this world, animals find themselves struggling to exist in our drywall matrix. In arid or sparse environments, animal interactions can become more drastic and desperate. It is important that municipalities, counties, and relevant state and federal authorities adequately educate and regulate people into their own best practices, such as garbage storage in bear country, or not hiking alone in the land of cougars and ravenous pit bulls. Unfortunately the pretense of democracy requires every interest (no matter how sullied) to be considered. This may be done in onerous public hearings or instead labyrinthine bureaucratic lawyer fights. At the end of the day, the wildlife habitat manager can only hope that the least amount of damage to all living creatures is done, and the least amount of ground is lost to the eternal Wal-Mart."

2018-12-08 05:52:04 UTC

Buzzwords of pretend intellectualism, activate!

2018-12-08 05:52:48 UTC

But is your professor based?

2018-12-08 05:54:08 UTC

They are an avid duck hunter and have apprehended Chinese-paid poachers. Who knows?

2018-12-08 05:54:29 UTC

That's as edgy as it got, the rest was a dry rundown on Leopold-style habitat management.

2018-12-08 05:54:55 UTC

Sounds about as close as you'll get for a professor

2018-12-08 05:55:12 UTC

My program does have some confirmed based profs though.

2018-12-08 05:55:32 UTC

One said "portland should be fenced off for a year"

2018-12-29 06:25:56 UTC

I'm going kangaroo spot lighting tonight. I'll try to get some pictures for you guys.

2018-12-29 06:55:44 UTC

Please do! I’m very jealous of you this past week or so lol

2018-12-29 15:40:48 UTC




2018-12-29 15:44:01 UTC

We got 3 roos and 3 wombats.

2018-12-29 15:48:02 UTC

The kangaroos we got were pretty small. There was a bit of a thunderstorm in the distance and we think that might have driven some of them away from the property we were hunting. My GF's brother said that on a good night they might get as many as 10.

2018-12-29 15:49:22 UTC

We saw one big red buck but he got down into a creek bed and we couldn't get him back out.

2018-12-29 17:38:46 UTC

@Der Seeteufel - SD I've eaten roo before but how's that wombat taste?

2018-12-29 19:53:14 UTC

@RevStench they use the meat for dogs or leave them for the foxes.

2018-12-29 20:28:40 UTC

Oh ok, seems like a waste.haha I guess the dogs have to eat too.

2018-12-30 04:39:13 UTC

That’s what I’m talking about

2018-12-30 04:40:31 UTC

Small enough to be wallabies unless they’re actually young roos

2018-12-31 05:03:59 UTC

@VinceChaos they were a breed of smaller kangaroos. The one that is pictured is a female scrubber that I shot. My GFs brother shot the other two roos and they were blues and both about that size. Reds are the ones that get to be as tall as a man. I shot all three wombats we got but I'm not sure if I should post all the pictures I got. Some are pretty graphic. We go for headshots and .223 pretty much demolishes them.

2018-12-31 05:13:48 UTC

Ugly bastards.

2018-12-31 17:36:03 UTC

Nice my knowledge is a little rusty. The reds are my favorite animal. What a treat

2019-01-03 11:32:13 UTC



2019-01-03 11:33:52 UTC

GFs brother shot a big boomer today. You can see how much bigger he is than the other 3 we had in the cold storage from before.

2019-01-13 20:24:04 UTC

what kind of fire starting kit would someone have used in the 19th century? I'm reading a book about the Yukon and it sounded like they were able to start a fire anywhere, possibly with green wood even.

2019-01-13 21:11:39 UTC

One trick I learned in the boy scouts was to use branches near the bottom of an evergreen tree. They would stay dry in rain or snow and in the case of deep snow, the base of the tree would make a great shelter. You could also use the sap as a firestarter.

2019-01-14 00:04:43 UTC

are there any saps which make it harder to light the limbs?

2019-01-26 01:31:15 UTC

My governor. Unfortunately the woman is the governor, but still pretty good post.


2019-01-26 02:20:47 UTC

Every man in the US should be issued a boar skin coat

2019-01-28 01:09:16 UTC


2019-01-28 01:09:21 UTC

that's funny

2019-02-13 01:46:48 UTC

Do any of you guys fly fish? I’d love to send you some of the flys I’ve tied. They look like this, but with differing colors.


2019-02-13 01:47:43 UTC

I use this style of fly for 80% of the trout I catch. The other 20% I use steamers or midges.

2019-02-14 00:36:52 UTC

Hi @Felden - CO ! Do you see this message?

2019-02-22 04:25:35 UTC

Are there any falconers in IE?

2019-02-22 04:27:02 UTC

@Mojave Paisan - NV no. But a few of us do go after small game; both upland and waterfowl.

2019-02-22 10:30:29 UTC

@Mojave Paisan - NV I confess I actually looked into falconry once. In my state at least, it's actually really hard to get a license to do it. A whole lot of training and classes.

2019-02-22 21:48:26 UTC

@Will - MD It seems like in Nevada you just have to be an apprentice for a couple years and pass an inspection to certify that you have all of the right equipment and housing facilities.

2019-02-26 23:00:57 UTC

My bird dog doesn't like the snow.
