These people eat animals you've never even heard of.

FTA:

But hunting requires venturing into a rural area, proper equipment in tow, getting out of bed at the ass-crack of dawn to sit and wait for a couple of hours in often frigid weather. If you're successful, then you have to butcher an animal. It's a lot of hard work and it's often boring.

WTH?  I'll remember my hunting outings much more than sitting at a hip bar trying to choke down the latest fruity craft brew that my buddy insists is really good stuff.

And this is why I'd be frightened as a hunter -- how many of these newbies are going traipsing out into the woods with loaded weapons and not one lick of safety training?

The only thing ironic is that I still don't understand this new use of the word ironic.* How can a t-shirt be ironic? Or a mustache? How could you hunt ironically? I'd make an "ironing" joke but that would be too much. Or maybe that would be ironic, I don't know.

Most states require a hunter's safety course before issuing a hunting permit.

You can't and they aren't.  Long story short, there's no such thing as ironic self-expression, because self and expression aren't detached enough for ironic distance to come in.  If you wear a shirt, you're expressing yourself through that shirt.  Whether or not you call it ironic doesn't matter.

Hipsters look like clowns because looking like a clown is kind of a proper response to 2014.

In all seriousness to this point - I believe all states now require hunter's safety courses in order to obtain a hunting license.

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.

I love how the youngsters think they're special re-discovering things older people have cycled through numerous times.

What's next--pushing for an all-lager brewpub, since ales are so yesterday, not putting two and two together that light lagers are PBR, Miller, and the rest?

Or finding out about artisanal hand-picked, hand-rolled, large diameter oversized cigarettes?

/Glad to know my friends and I have been hipster our whole lives, what, with all the microbrew love and hunting going back to the '80s.

There's actually truth to this.

Inlines using powder substitutes and discarding sabots out power metallic cartridges like the 45-70 and 35 Remington and tend to have better accuracy since you're running a more aerodynamic shape/better BC.

To me, muzzleloader season should be side lock season (primers or flint), but inlines should be relegated to the regular season like any other single shot rifle would be.

This is good.  We have way too many deer and hipsters.  So we send the hipsters out to the woods to thin out the deer, and while they are out there, we don't miss them.  Then if they don't come back, because of a hunting accident or something, we don't miss them even more.

yeah, with the modern muzzleloaders i see out there now i'm hard pressed to see why they should get a preferentially season over someone like myself with a bolt action

The only people I ever see using the word "hipster" are the intellectually and/or physically lazy.

I realize that you're a farking moron. But for anyone else that reads that may buy into your dumb shiat:

The NRA is still the standard for gun safety courses. They do more to promote and set up gun safety programs more than any other organization. Say what you want about their politics, that's fair game. But to say they forsaken gun and hunter safety for politics is a lie

Yes by law in most states.  However, you can go into a Walmart kiosk to get a license and when it asks you if you've had a hunter safety course you just hit yes and move on.  You don't have to provide any other info on the safety course than that.

This.

Also, at the expense of sounding hipster to you all. I'm an urban kid. I live in Chicago. But I've been hunting and fishing my whole life. When I wasn't going to museums or Comisky park, I'd be in the Michigan woods camping or hunting, or on various lakes fishing, water skiing, or what have you. I learned to clean a gun at the age of 10, and by 13 I knew enough about boat handling/safety that my dad would let me take out his boat, unsupervised and by myself, for hours.

What am I saying here? I'm not sure. But I'm steadfast in the opinion that you should teach your kids outdoor skills. Frankly, urban kids are weak an kinda dumb for the most part. they could benefit from learning how to clean a fish, skin a deer, survive in the wilderness for a couple days, identify edible plants, and other outdoor skills.

Depends on the state.

Missouri issues a card with a bar code and a mag strip, or you have to provide your hunting license (also with a bar code).

No scan/swipe, no transaction can occur.

In PA I had to provide my Missouri card and they keyed in the ID number to get a general hunting license.

I've never bought a license in a state where the guy behind the counter can hit a "skip" button for verifying safety course status.
 
2014-01-24 03:18:13 PM  

busy chillin': But of course they only fish tributaries and really out of the way small streams that have names you haven't heard of.


You know it is funny but this is precisely what the old school, legit to the bone fly fishermen do in my local mountains. They are as far from hipster as you can get, but they are amazingly insular and the streams they fish are known only by thin blue lines on topo maps. They pass down the knowledge (which ones are productive, how to get there, etc) one to one and if you don't know them and have their trust, you will probably never fish the blue lines with any degree of productivity.

I am not connected enough to the old schoolers to fish blue lines so I have to stick to the main-streams.
