    hunting and fishing

    what do you like to hunt. what do like to fish.

    i grew up loving hunting and fishing.
    when i was growing up, i shot pigeons,squirrels and rabbits-plus starlings and and those dam worthless sparrows.also i loved coon hunting..
    as i got older we used to duck hunt and run throw lines for catfish. the biggest catfish i snagged on a trot line was a big flathead and it weighed 59 lbs.
    i used to love pheasant and grouse hunting...i always had trained hunting dogs-pointers,brittanies labs,german shorthairs,vizlas. i trained and loved those dogs. i had one germain shorthair dig down ino a gopher hole in south texas and we got six quail out of that hole. i think i have shot 25000 quail behind those good dogs. we fish in the laguna madre at south padre isle for redfish,flounders, and trout. we have our own flat bottom with 125 hp motor on it...
    back in the 80's i bulit my ow 50 calibre musket from a kit... i like to hunt with it when we get permission to hunt on the king ranch for big african animals that the king ranch has.
    when i was healthy i used to do the big 5 in the texas panhandle-quail,pheasants,ducks, geese and sand hill crane. one time when we were in the texas panhandle i shot into a flying "V" OF SANDHILL CRANES...i killed one and wounded two. i had a hell of a time downing the two wounded cranes. i wasted more dam shells on those two cranes..actually sandhiil crane is very tasty. i got 17 out of 22 that day. we ate some fresh for dinner and brought the rest back to the rio grande valley..

    i still like to handicap dove hunt.
    this fall my oldest boy and i are planning a trip to sitka, alaska. i have a very good friend there that has invited me to hunt.
    our goal is to catch some king salmon.
    2. bag some brown or brown bears;
    3. get some moose:
    4. kill some black tail sitka deer.

    we will get the meat processed there. we will get the hides tanned there. we will freeze the meat.
    i will keep any salmon we catch.if we get a bear,moose or deer,we will probably keep the deer and make summer sausage out of it..
    i think i will donate rest of the meat to the biology dept at UT PAN AMERICAN for a game dinner...
    no tales about craig robinson or george soros.
    lets have a decent blog and no ******* character attack.

    Pheasant hunting is like a religion in my family.

    I love blasting a hole right through most animals, but my favorite is panda.

    Re: hunting and fishing

    I like hitting up good stocked ponds for bass and bluegill. Actually enjoy catching catfish in the backwaters of rivers too.

    As for hunting, I just started this last year, but had a great time shooting my first deer. Also enjoy chasing varmits around the yard, if you call that hunting.

    Re: hunting and fishing

    I love upland hunting. I had to put my lab down last Christmas so I was forced to buy a new pup. Unfortunately then we had to move over here and taking guns was much more difficult than what I wanted to tackle. So, I will miss two hunting seasons before I get back to Iowa. Crazy thing is I see pheasants all the time here (Germany).


    Are you sure Hank done it this way?

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: hunting and fishing

    We just had our wild game feed and fish fry this last weekend. I haven't eaten anything tastier than smoked wild boar, even better than venison.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    Sounds like you got lucky on that. I've heard some horror stories on wild boar. There's quite a few wild hogs in my neck of the woods, but nobody every tries to eat them. Just shoot them or trap them.

    Re: hunting and fishing

    Fishing for whatever will bite.
    Love Ontario walleye's and smallies.
    Iowa LMB and panfish and trout in NE Iowa.

    WHen it comes to hunting nothing beats geese! Love when a flock of honkers locks up on the spread glides in with the feet down. That's when you know you've won!

    Also ducks and pheasants.
