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

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.


What's really farked-up is there are more hunting related injuries in Eastern VA where rifles aren't allowed.

ChipNASA: 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.
/good times, good times.

How did you come to have bear hands?

DON'T YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE U.S. CONSTITUTION???.
It *plainly* says in the 4th or 13th amendment that I have the right to bear arms.


Beautiful setup and well played sir, you have made my day

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.

Shouldn't that be mano a pezuña?

Now, now, leave the Mexicans out of this. If they managed to make it ALL THE WAY from Mexico to Iowa, I say they can stay.
No need to hunt them down and kill them too.
Now, it they start taking *ALL* our jerbs, THEN we'll have to go back and reconsider and maybe they'll need killin' as well.

Five gun shot injuries during the weekend: three people shot themselves in the foot (!), one hit in the elbow by someone in their hunting party, and another hit in the shoulder by someone in their hunting party -- apparently due to fog.

ChipNASAis a son of a biatch!

One time I was with ChipNASA in the back of a pickup truck, along with a live deer. ChipNASA goes up to the deer and says, 'I'm ChipNASA! SAY IT!' Then he manipulates the deer's lips in such a way as to make it say, 'ChipNASA' ... It wasn't exactly like it, but it was pretty good for a deer!'"

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.

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.
 
2012-12-05 10:57:57 AM  
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.

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.

Haul him home. If I am fast enough I can get the organs on ice and then I can "donate" them to the local hospital. Then I ship the rest of the corpse off to the taxidermist. I have one where he is in the standard "angry bear" pose, and one drinking from a stream.

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).

Not to worry, deer are the rats of the forest. With hunters being the primary culling agent, does that have multiple births are favored. They'd be too slow to escape predators.

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.
