Hot Lunch: Skarekrough: Please...God....don't let them embrace fly fishing....

Good God, I wish I had never embraced fly fishing. It's expensive and I never catch anything because I suck


Let me tell you about a friend of mine named Hande Grenaide. He's been quite successful hauling trout out of the heaviest cover.

Failing that, a #12 bead head nymph always does the trick for me. Or a Mr. Rapidan dry fly.
In case your waters are stocked, remember that the trout are on a twice daily feeding schedule. First light and last light.
If that's the case, bag the fly rod and get a 1/16th oz rooster tail in chartreuse or white rainbow. Hell yeah.

Just got back from duck hunting in your state and as out of state hunters, the lady asked us if we had taken a safety course and we said yes.  I have taken it and it's on file with GA but one of the people with us has never taken it and all that was required of him was to say "yes" when asked if he had taken it.

Not hipster.

I think what people mean when they say hipster, is someone who starts participating in a hobby that others have been doing for their whole life, but once they start doing it, it suddenly becomes the cool thing to do. Plus, they seem to have a sense of undeserved superiority about them when it comes to this new hobby.

NathanAllen: Exclude fishing from that, since it is rarely about keeping fish for meals. At most you want to keep a couple crappie or bluegills. Eating that four pound small-mouth or sauger? That's a damned waste of a fish.


Had a two-pound sauger for dinner earlier this week. That was NOT a waste of fish. I caught it in a river down the road from me...probably haven't heard/etc.

I do that part already. Brine, dry to form pellicle, smoke. I have an electric smoker on my deck. I've used it almost every weekend since Thanksgiving.

It's the salmon fillets that are farking expensive. I gotta buy a good fillet knife and practice so I can at least buy whole fish and fillet them myself.

If a hipster wants to learn how to shoot and hunt, I would not have any problem showing him the ropes as long as he was conscientious enough to be safe and genuinely wanted to learn.

Hunting is a great hobby. I encourage anyone who's interested to give it a try. I actually have a hipster friend that's been wanting me to teach him how to hunt. Haven't found the time to take him out yet though. However, he of course wants to hunt with a recurved solid wood bow. I'm more of a gun guy myself. Never been too good with a bow, and I like to get the job done as cleanly as possible. No use making an animal suffer needlessly on my part.
Got off track there. But I support people taking up outdoor sports. It's better than my other friend who is against hunting entirely, and never saw the point of it (until of course we were both broke one week and he saw me eating venison chili and duck breasts while he was eating ramen)

I never ate better than when I was stationed in Kodiak Alaska. Between the base and my apartment was a nice stream. In the summer, I would stop off at the stream, catch a fish, bring it home a eat it. I'd also go for halibut on the ocean, and I would head down to the docks and get Alaskan king crab straight off the fishermans boat for a great price.

Here in Oregon the Hunter safety course is only required for kids under 18. Even then it isn't required if you are hunting on your parents property.

So maybe Portland will see a reduction in the hipster population soon...

It was MO...never been to PA.  In GA you don't even get your license from a person, just a kiosk.  I've never had my hunter's safety course number asked and honestly, I took it before computers and don't have a number.  My GA hunters license just says that it's "on file".  Born in '80 btw so me and my friends wouldn't fall under the prior to '68 rule.

I don't think the majority will last beyond their first mortally wounded, but not yet dead animal.

CSB Time:

First time I ever shot and killed my first moose was when I was 17. I saw a calf, took the shot and it dropped but wasn't dead. It then started doing it's distress call (think shrieking baby) man I started to cry. I finally got up enough courage to face what I'd done and put the poor sucker out of his misery. While walking, slowly, through the bush towards the beaver pond I'd shot the calf in, I noticed the cow off to my left. Since another hunter in the party had a cow tag, I shot her too. This one was a clean kill, right through the heart. I then finally made it to the calf and put it down. Then I had to field dress these two moose alone. It was well past dark before I made it back to camp to get the other guys to haul the meat out of the bush. Anyway, that time was tough and it gets easier but I'll never ever forget that first calf and his distress call.

No you're right. The people who always claim that "Hipster is just a word for people who do stuff you don't like." are either Hipsters themselves defending their ever changing "Did it before it was cool" hobbies, or just people who don't understand we aren't attacking people for doing stuff they enjoy; we're attacking people who do stuff they don't enjoy but do it because it's "not mainstream" and usually are doing it the wrong way (such as beekeeping in an urban environment without regard to local insectbourne diseases, the bees' food source, and people who are walking by [like me] who are allergic to bee-stings) or are doing something they enjoy that is mainstream but never admit it and if caught only claim they're doing it "ironically" (as a defense to being an arrogant "more alternative than thou" Hipster, instead of admitting your interests outside "alternative"). We go after these Hunter Hipsters (while wishing there were more Hipster Hunters! :-P ) because they're taking up an activity (most likely) without proper training (which could endanger themselves or other hunters) or good reason to within their idea of "alternative" (which as one poster said before, many of these Hipsters are either Vegan or seek meat that has been slaughtered "humanely", in something like a "free range cooperative organic [etc - on top of other designations] farm") which I don't think luring an animal to a location with a salt lick and then shooting it is one of those "alternative" activities. Seems more to me that some of the Hipsters miss their childhood (many of the ones that come to Brooklyn are from central states like Iowa, Nebraska, Kentucky, etc) and want to go hunting again, call it an "alternative" activity, and the non-Vegan ones (or a Vegan one who says she's only shooting the animal "ironically!" :-P ) will follow on until the activity becomes "mainstream" again (as if hunting isn't a common activity already) and they'll move onto something else again.

Casual dress?  Hipster.  Tailored suite?  Hipster.  Fashionable clothes?  Hipster.  Utilitarian workman's clothing?  Hipster.  Vegetarianism and hunting, both hipster.  Bicycles, motorcycles, vintage scooters, cars, not having a car, video games, rejecting video games, donuts, paleo, hatchets, rocking chairs, expensive handcrafted wooden pencils and leatherbound notebooks, frugal reuse of inexpensive pencils and paper, taking your notes on a tablet, apple, hating apple, taking a balanced view of apple and their competitors, beards, moustaches, and shaving... all hipster.

Solar power?  Hipster.  Like the smell of vintage engine exhaust?  Hipster.  Ultra-rare homebrew beer, cheap terrible mass-market beer, temperance, rampant alcoholism... all hipster.  Old bands, new bands, rare bands, pop music, death metal, vintage rap, gangsta rap, sci-fi rap, chiptunes, chamber orchestra, EDM, and hammer dulcimer sextets?  Hipster music.

Sports fans.  Sports participants.  Stat nuts.  Made-up new sports.  Dodgeball as a sport.  Crossfit.  Anti-crossfit.  Football.  The other football.  The other other football, you know... the one that starts with R.  Extreme sports like kitesurfing.  Incredibly non-extreme sports like curling.  Dungeons and Dragons.  NOT liking dungeons and dragons because there are better games.  Board games.  Wensleydale.  Cheez-whiz.  Lactose intolerance you're not actually sure you have but which might just give you mild gas.

Girls with glasses.  Guys with glasses.  Google glass.  Not wearing glasses.  Collecting depression glass.  Knowing a rocks glass from a tumbler.  Living in a glass house.  Joining the tiny house movement.  Declaring houses a suburban city-planning dead end that will ruin society.  Buying and restoring an old suburban house.

Hunting, gathering, gardening, eating, drinking, hiking, walking, biking, sailing, rowing, boxing, foxy-boxing, autoboxing, hotboxing, boxhab, box forts, being outside the box, sleeping in a box, unboxing, box recycling, boxing day, new-in-box collectors' items, shoeboxes full of well-loved and used collectibles, letterboxing, pillarboxing, police boxes, beatboxing, and the exact opposite or absence of all of these things.

And don't forget that fish typically freezes well. We typically freeze all of our excess salmon here (probably about 50 pounds a year on a good year).  Just make sure to eat it within a year or so.

Worrying about being a hipster is pretty hipster... but so is totally not caring.  And being moderately interested.  Or having a sociological interest in why a group label that includes all groups except your own hyper-precise personal grouping might have arisen.  Or why some groups self-apply it.  Or having thoughts about why the word can't be more precise.  Or wondering about its etymology.  Or arguing that the word *is* more precise, but nobody knows this.  Or thinking about low-rise pants.

DarkSoulNoHope: Seems more to me that some of the Hipsters miss their childhood (many of the ones that come to Brooklyn are from central states like Iowa, Nebraska, Kentucky, etc) and want to go hunting again, call it an "alternative" activity, and the non-Vegan ones (or a Vegan one who says she's only shooting the animal "ironically!" :-P ) will follow on until the activity becomes "mainstream" again (as if hunting isn't a common activity already) and they'll move onto something else again.

Epic facepalm.
