The article says 4 or 5 hunters were injured. It doesn't say killed. Presumably, this is not just guys falling out of tree stands but who knows?

// If it's just woundings of people participating in the hunt (and not innocent bystanders), then I'd say it's a pretty good year and the rest of us have no basis for complaining.

// Come on subby, if you want to make a point, do a little more work.

Pussies,
I hunt deer with my bear hands and a knife. Mano a Mano. That's the only way to do it. I like to feel them quiver and strain when I wrestle them to the ground and then bend them back and plunge the blade *deep* in to their necks...twisting to ensure I sever the spinal cord and feeling them take their last breaths and then feeling their lungs deflate like a children's balloon when you stop pinching the neck. And not of those fancy plastic tools to remove the anus when you're field dressing your game. I like to do that with my bare hands. One finger....then two....then my entire hand. Mmmmm.
Just the though arouses me.

Basically you pack a shotgun shell with one big metal slug rather than a bunch of little ones. Less range than high power rifles is the idea, supposedly safer, but I guess I'm not seeing why this is such a concern in Iowa of all places.

A slug is one big heavy projectile fired by a shotgun (instead of a bunch of spreading shot). Compared to a round from a high powered rifle it's heavier and has a bit more stopping power at close range, but it's not nearly as aerodynamic and has a much lower muzzle velocity so it can't inadvertently hit something a mile and a half away if you fire it up over the horizon like a rifle round theoretically could.
 
2012-12-05 10:22:06 AM  
In our ER the start of hunting season is always an auspicious day, especially if it's windy. Our trauma team has its hands full with hunters who fall out of tree stands (plus or minus the presence of alcohol in their system).

I'm cringing at the poster that said his friend blew his balls off with a shotgun. How did he manage that? Ugh. We get gangbangers that do that fairly commonly, but that's usually because they were mexican carrying (although if you ask them it would sound like there was an epidemic of window cleaners sniping at people's dicks).

My Iowa deer hunting CSB

Spent one year freezing my ass before and after school every day (back when you could leave the shotgun in the trunk of your car and nobody freaked the hell out) for two weeks, and on the last day of the season I sat out all day that Sunday, freezing my ass, and did not see one deer, at all that season.

So, disappointed, I started driving toward home, and about halfway there a farking deer jumped out of the ditch, dented the side of my car, and ran off.

The end

Illinois is another shotgun hunting state. We can also use muzzloading blackpowder rifles. In both cases, low velocity, large diameter hunks of lead that have a lot of stopping power at less than 100 yards. I think you can use a normal rifle in Wisconsin though, because they aren't pussies.

so, i know people who hunt. someday i'll ask to come along, just for fun. I have no problem with hunting, nor do i have a problem with dressing/butchering an animal.

but, here's what I've noticed that's actually important. hunters like the big fancy deers. that's great for them. but, all those bucks are old. their meat sucks. basically only good for sausage or stew.

sometime recently, i knew this guy who shot a very young deer because it was destroying crops on his farm. he brought it over and cooked it up and it was farking amazing. it was the veal version of deer. great flavor, but the softness and tenderness of a baby lamb. it was awesome.

so, if i went hunting, i would pursue the youngest deer. afterall, my trophy case is in my belly.

Minnesota does it that way too. Theory is it's safer since it doesn't travel as far. There are a million people out there with guns shooting like morons so I guess maybe it helps but I think it's way more dangerous because people underestimate the range. They assume it has the range of bird shot which isn't true.

Nobody? Just me?

I always will remember,
'twas a year ago november,
I went out to hunt some deer
On a mornin' bright and clear.
I went and shot the maximum the game laws would allow,
Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.

I was in no mood to trifle,
I took down my trusty rifle
And went out to stalk my prey.
What a haul I made that day.
I tied them to my fender, and I drove them home somehow,
Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.

The law was very firm, it
Took away my permit,
The worst punishment I ever endured.
It turned out there was a reason,
Cows were out of season,
And one of the hunters wasn't insured.

People ask me how I do it,
And I say, there's nothin' to it,
You just stand there lookin' cute,
And when something moves, you shoot!
And there's ten stuffed heads in my trophy room right now,
Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a pure-bred guernsey cow.

Why Is Human Hunting Important to Our Environment?
While many animal advocates are against hunting of any kind, it is necessary for the health of our planet. An overpopulation of humans causes significant damage on various levels.

Time Frame
The human population has dramatically increased during the past 20 years.

Significance
Humans damage all kinds of vegetation. This includes vegetables, fruit trees, nursery stock, foliage, ornamental landscaping and farm crops.

Effects
Of the farmers who have reported, as many as 80 percent state they have crop loss because of humans just throwing food away.

Considerations
In addition to the crop and landscape damage, humans also inhibit regrowth of trees and other vegetation, and have been blamed for distribution and transmission of diseases such as the plague and herpes.

Prevention/Solution
Human hunting is the most logical method of controlling the human population. Woman hunting has been promoted in many states, and hunting seasons have been lengthened to increase the management efforts of the human population. Increasing these legal limitations could be the answer.

jayhawk88: KrispyKritter: FlashHarry: and that's with slugs. no rifles in iowa.

no idea what that means. slugs. please expand if you don't mind, thanks

Basically you pack a shotgun shell with one big metal slug rather than a bunch of little ones. Less range than high power rifles is the idea, supposedly safer, but I guess I'm not seeing why this is such a concern in Iowa of all places.


slug hits much harder. if you get that deer with a slug, odds are it's going to go down PDQ. it also cuts down on regulations - if you allow rifles then you'll have to make more rules because of great ranges in types of guns, types of bullets, types of magazines... etc. a shotgun slug is pretty much always either 410 gauge or 12 gauge - .5 oz of lead or 1 oz of lead (about). sometimes it's non-lead.

also, less range so less overshoot... and because it kicks hard you are much less likely to get people making reckless rapid shots (or so the theory goes).

in reality there are plenty of very responsible rifle hunters there that never take a shot until the animal is fully in the clear, they know what's behind it, and they know they can make a clean kill.

but we assume that the legislators/game wardens are wiser heads than ours and so we abide by the rules.

Ohio got 86,964 this year, down 3.7% from last year, due to the ODNR expanding other opportunities to hunt deer and reducing the herd. I haven't found any hunter fatalities for 2012.

During gun season you are allowed to use:

Shotgun: 10-gauge or smaller shotgun using one ball or one rifled slug per barrel (rifled shotgun barrels are permitted when using shotgun slug ammunition). Shotguns cannot be capable of holding more than three shells.

Muzzleloading rifle: .38 caliber or larger

Muzzleloading shotgun: 10-gauge or smaller using one ball per barrel

Handgun: with 5-inch minimum length barrel, using straight-walled cartridges .357 caliber or larger.

Longbow or Bow: minimum draw weight 40 lbs. This would include compound bows and recurve bows. The arrow tuo shall have a minimum of two cutting edges which may be exposed or unexposed and minimim 3/4-inch width. Expandable and mechanical broadheads are legal. Poisoned or explosive arrows are illegal.

Crossbow: draw weight not less than 75 lbs. The arrow tip shall have a minimum of two cutting edges which may be exposed or unexposed and minimum 3/4-inch width. Expandable and mechanical broad heads are legal. Poisoned or explosive arrows are illegal.

I live in the top deer area of the state (Muskingum, Coshocton, Guernsey, Tuscarawas....at least for this years numbers). Had to chase off some spot lighters ( I don't care if you are just looking, its still illegal and ITS NOT YOUR LAND!) and call the game warden on some trespassers (hell, I have to do that during Morel season).

I don't hunt, but I support hunting if anything to keep the damn population in check.

Why is that?

Iowa is flat. A rifle round will travel forever, slugs not so much. You get away from the mountains here in VA and it is only shotgun as well.


yup.

the scary thing is, here in nebraska - which is waaay flatter than iowa - hunting with rifles is perfectly legal.

I'm not a hunter, I'm not against it - I'd actually like to learn. But sadly the stereotype is not a level headed responsible individual doing as you said. It only takes one. In my area, a state police officer just shot his neighbor in a hunting accident off the woods near their homes. Pretty much ruins it for everyone.

Eh, it only takes one bad apple to ruin the bushel unfortunately. Like I said above, every year during deer season I have to call the game warden to report either poachers, trespassers, or spot lighters at least once. Most of the time it seems to be some out of state asshole (Usually Michigan, runner up of New York).

CSB/

I worked at an all-night gas station/party store in Mt Pleasant, Michigan 20 years ago, and about 3:30 am during deer season all the camouflaged, bearded deer hunters would start coming in to buy coffee and stale donuts on their way to a day of sitting on their asses in the woods. For reasons I never understood, most of these guys carried their rifles into the store, slung casually over their shoulders like IDF girls at a Tel Aviv disco, and many, many of them were already visibly drunk.

I'm always amazed that these stats of dead "sportsmen" aren't in the double digits.

What are the rules on hunting? Only allowed to shoot a certain size?

I read an interesting article in the Washington Post magazine a couple years ago that discussed the deer problem in suburban D.C./MD. While it didn't advocate hunting young deer specifically, the experts they interviewed for the article (can't remember if they were from DNR) did say that hunters should really stop going after big bucks with large racks and concentrate on does. They contribute most to the population growth, since they often have 2 fawns. If both fawns are does, then they will grow up, have 2 fawns each, etc, etc. They were trying to work with hunters during organized hunts to target more does.

Also, more then likely the guns weren't loaded. Also, in fairness, they are more likely to kill somebody with their car while drunk then with their gun.

Barricaded Gunman: I'm always amazed that these stats of dead "sportsmen" aren't in the double digits.


In fact, it's quite low. There are roughly 600 accidental gun deaths every year, only a fraction of which are hunting accidents.

Now, it gets in the news every time a hunter is shot, of course, which makes us think that hunting is a dangerous sport, but the reality of it is that hunting is pretty safe, and getting safer every year.

The reasons for that are many, but probably include better hunter safety education, the wearing of blaze orange, the increasing popularity of archery seasons and muzzleloader seasons (you have to be closer, and you can't just blaze away with either),

Distant cousin of mine, drunk, dropped his rifle out of his stand. It discharged and shot him in the leg. So now he is up a tree with a terrible gunshot wound. This was back in the days before cell phones. So he proceeds to fall out of his stand and eventually die of his now multiple injuries.

I've seen a lot of drunk hunters in my time, even though getting caught hunting while drunk will get you cuffed and hauled off to jail in this state (well, used to anyway). I used to hunt - mostly quail. We always took a flask with us, but left it in the truck. Having a couple was something we did after the guns were put away. Guns and booze just don't mix.

Back when I did hunt with my uncles and cousins there were two groups. The sitters and stalkers. I would stalk, actually get out there and try and trail the deer/turkey/bear. Tougher but so much more fun. The sitters were just that, sit and wait. Every one of them had their mason jars and spam and egg sandwiches for breakfast.

Am surprised that only one of them ended up dead.

BronyMedic: danielscissorhands: ChipNASA: Pussies,
I hunt deer with my bear hands and a knife. Mano a Mano. That's the only way to do it. I like to feel them quiver and strain when I wrestle them to the ground and then bend them back and plunge the blade *deep* in to their necks...twisting to ensure I sever the spinal cord and feeling them take their last breaths and then feeling their lungs deflate like a children's balloon when you stop pinching the neck. And not of those fancy plastic tools to remove the anus when you're field dressing your game. I like to do that with my bare hands. One finger....then two....then my entire hand. Mmmmm.
Just the though arouses me.

Hunter here...not really laws on the size of deer, but some areas have doe-only (or in some cases, buck-only) tags, where you can't shoot anything else. Where I hunt, the first deer can be either a doe or buck, and after your first buck, you have to "earn" another buck tag by first shooting a doe. That said, this year I passed up 4 doe on opening morning, simply because they were pretty small. There wouldn't be enough good meat to make it worth it, so I simply didn't shoot. I also passed up a 6-point buck.

Of course, now I have some regret since I didn't see any sizeable doe the rest of the season...oh well...

The deer will smell you long before it sees you. Or hear you. They have an incredibly acute hearing. A couple of weeks ago, I walked to my front door and saw a herd of deer out in the pasture across foraging. They were a good 2000 feet away. I quietly turned the door know and opened the door. All heads came up and fixed on my location. Had I made anymore noise, they would have bolted.

Pedersoli flintlock Pennsylvania rifle - .32" caliber.

The smaller .36 and .32 caliber muzzleloaders are generally either target or small game guns. You wouldn't take a .30-30 to hunt rabbits or squirrels, so you wouldn't take a .50 caliber muzzleloader to do the same.

Tyrone Biggums: pute kisses like a man: so, i know people who hunt. someday i'll ask to come along, just for fun. I have no problem with hunting, nor do i have a problem with dressing/butchering an animal.

but, here's what I've noticed that's actually important. hunters like the big fancy deers. that's great for them. but, all those bucks are old. their meat sucks. basically only good for sausage or stew.

sometime recently, i knew this guy who shot a very young deer because it was destroying crops on his farm. he brought it over and cooked it up and it was farking amazing. it was the veal version of deer. great flavor, but the softness and tenderness of a baby lamb. it was awesome.

so, if i went hunting, i would pursue the youngest deer. afterall, my trophy case is in my belly.

Do that and I am sure your local DNR officer would have some words with you.


i figured there were rules about what to shot. i'm not a hunter, so i just spoke from a hypothetical position on the superior taste of younger venison.

and, i probably won't go hunting anyways. seems like too much time and trouble for food that's only mediocre. i'll stick to fishing (or try hunting birds, they always taste good)

The younger venision may be somewhat better but it is typically not sifnificant unless you shoot a real old deer. However, the yield is much less. A yearling spike or forkie mulie will get you typically about 30 pounds of meat. A 3 or 4 year old buck will get you about 55 to 60 pounds while the taste/texture is not that much different.

The trick if you want good meat is typically not shoot them in the rut. We don't have to worry about that here in Idaho. Our general deer season was over a month and a half ago.

As everyone knows, the rut is a very painful place to get shot.

What! No pics of the pilot shot as a deer from Hot Shots. For shame for shame. It still cracks me up when the one pilot, kid from the family who shot the pilot, told the son of the pilot that he didn't have seconds.

And before you ask, the rut hormones make the meat rancid. Nasty tasting.

But before/after rut (mating season) the hormones go to normal, and the meat is fine.

I wasn't going to ask, because I know what the rut is.

The taste of the meat will also be affected by the deer's diet, the amount of adrenaline in the bloodstream (if the hunter did a poor job and the deer ran for a while before dying), and whether the carcass was drained of blood immediately post-kill.

Burr: Englebert Slaptyback: Barricaded Gunman

For reasons I never understood, most of these guys carried their rifles into the store, slung casually over their shoulders like IDF girls at a Tel Aviv disco, and many, many of them were already visibly drunk.


The gun-on-shoulder thing might have been an anti-theft measure (instead of leaving the guns visible in the vehicle).

No idea about the drunkitude, though. That just sounds like a bad idea.

Also, more then likely the guns weren't loaded. Also, in fairness, they are more likely to kill somebody with their car while drunk then with their gun.

/but yeah, drinking and guns are a bad idea

I'm a bow hunter and shoot archery all year. This year I was invited to a rifle camp, so I went. I took a head shot with a 30-06 (not advised) on a doe and it flipped stern over bow. I walked over to clean it I found that I had knocked it out cold and not killed it (bullet grazed and didn't penetrate). All I could think of was Chris Tucker in Friday.

Cut its windpipe and it died immediately. I hunt for the venison and the meat was perfect. But I'm going to stick to archery as apparently I'm a better shot with an arrow.

Almost every day during the hunting season you see at least one item in the newspapers about somebody who has shot somebody else, under the impression that he was a deer with a red hat perhaps, maybe a large flesh-colored squirrel. At any rate, it seems to me that this marks an encouraging new trend in the field of blood sports, and deserves a new type of hunting song which I present herewith.

I always will remember,
'Twas a year ago November,
I went out to hunt some deer
On a mornin' bright and clear.
I went and shot the maximum the game laws would allow,
Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.

I was in no mood to trifle,
I took down my trusty rifle
And went out to stalk my prey.
What a haul I made that day.
I tied them to my fender, and I drove them home somehow,
Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.

The law was very firm, it
Took away my permit,
The worst punishment I ever endured.
It turned out there was a reason,
Cows were out of season,
And one of the hunters wasn't insured.

People ask me how I do it,
And I say, "There's nothin' to it,
You just stand there lookin' cute,
And when something moves, you shoot!"
And there's ten stuffed heads in my trophy room right now,
Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a pure-bred Guernsey cow.
