Why is a banana bad luck on a fishing boat? - pjsabella Keep 'em coming, guys. photo by Svadilfari

Every deer is great. Cherish every minute you get with your family and friends. When life cuts you short you realize just how blessed we are to have this wonderful sport GOD has given us. I used to take it for granted, but not anymore… - crossbow77

Looks to me like Sigourny Weaver has a new co-star. - Purplehead

I've found that dying the entire carpet the color of the poop to be an easier option. Not really ... but I have considered it. Commercial carpet cleaners just love to remove dog poop. Well, maybe not, but they are good at it. My next house is going to have full tile and wood floors. Throw rugs can be rolled up and taken to the cleaner ... or the quarter car wash. -Mike photo by tostie14

For a higher dollar rifle the Merkel is kind of ugly, I hope it shoots better than it looks. -herbie57_57

Actually, Arnold Schwarzenegger owns the M-47 tank that he drove during his draftee days in the Austrian Army. Many people own tanks, armored personnel carriers, and self-propelled artillery vehicles. Nothing wrong with that. Only tyrants and liberals would be bothered but that would be redundant, wouldn't it? -Ruckweiler

Yes, cows are spooky. Whenever I do anything in the country, they are there, watching and chewing. Always watching and chewing. Just waiting their chance. They have learned to communicate with the deer, passing on their diabolical schemes. Deer are out there, watching and chewing. Just waiting for their chance. -Mike photo by Emmett A Tullos III

I might be inclined to argue leniency for an old lady, but bashing bambi to protect a flower garden is way too much for me. -Seadog

It's sad that so many people take what they hear or see from the media as the absolute truth with no thought as to what else may be found with a little research. People need to wizen up and look a little deeper into the stories they hear to find the truth and not just what is shown to them. -Yoda photo by alan.stoddard

I would feel honored to eat a piece of a world record or any big animal, but who am I kidding, I just like eating animals. -taylor1

Rehashing Glen Beck is pointless. He is a recovering drug addict, His brain is fried. He thinks he's a pirate and he needs to be put in a rubber room. He couldn't go one on one with himself let alone someone with a law degree. - patrick88

We've been removing weeds and brush for out new plots. We put up several mini (10'x20' and 20'x60') plots around the property. We also leave a 5 acre santcuary that we never set foot in. Hopefully the sanctuary and the food plots will keep the deer from jumping the fence to our neighbor who regularly shoots bucks out of season. It's tough telling your teenage son the deer he was hoping for was shot 4 weeks before bow season starts. -cgull

Andrew, I was with until - you accept global warming, climate change or whatever.........When someone brings up that BS they lose credibilty and my attention, all I hear after that is dial tone. -Charlie elk photo by mike_is_scrumptious

I think I should be worried. Usually my wife complains constantly about my hunting time. With money being tight and my big old truck getting 12 mpg, I have not gone much this year. I do have a buddy that lives half the distance from the land than I do and has offered to let me stay with him to save on gas over the weekend or next week when we're both off work. I asked [my wife] how she felt about that and she was all for it and said I should do it several nights. I wonder what she's planning? -SCHuntman

You know its getting bad when you have to mount a fifty cal on the front of your bass boat. -patrick88 photo by Casualty

Guess what I think? They ought to take his gun, his truck, and anything that his family does not need to survive while he is in prison ... I harbor no sympathy for the kind of maggot munching, scum sucking, slime slurping, bottom feeding lowlifes that will poach animals just to get a trophy. I probably need to talk to someone about my inability to express what I really think, it is starting to impede me in my communication with others. -Bo

Haha just think of all the starving kids you could feed with this plane...this is how 50 Cent visits the mother land. -I_love_english

Y'all be careful about too much fishing. It can be overdone, and I proved it by quitting my profession and doing it for a living for fifteen years. It cooled my jets considerably. I still enjoy a leisurely trip now and then, but I certainly lost the obsessive fanaticism that virtually consumed me from my childhood through my early forties. **-Pineywoods******

I applaud Outdoor Life for keeping this disaster [the oil spill] current and all the updates and reports from the gulf region … Teddy R-come back to life we need you now... - the decoy hunter

As a k9trainer/handler I can understand the bond between these folks and their dogs. You only really bond with 3 dogs… your first, your worst and your last. -bhubbard64
31.
Pa-leeeze. How much sport is it to hunt them with rifles. Here in Illinois real hunters harvest them with bows. My best shot was at 22yards-dropped her in her tracks. Three minutes later I arrowed another female that was also investigating my calls. -snshdydm

Okay, does Giant tortoise taste like chicken or alligator? -Bo
35.
Coyotes taste like chicken. Just kidding, they are a menace, do not have a natural predator and are almost as bad as people at decimating local populations of the tasty tasty game animals. My local pop of deer has been affected and the coyotes are getting thinner, just wait until your kids puppy gets eaten by one, then tell me how much you want to protect them. -Dean-o

Twenty three more of those pictures and I would be permanently holed up in my house with cans of Raid stashed strategically around the place, a pocket full of antihistamines, a bottle of calamine lotion and many cases of red wine. Those bugs could give me a whole new appreciation of cold winters. I'm going to plan the rest of my insect defense arsenal over a glass of that red wine and try not to worry!! -Kody

I'd trade'em all fer one that can make a good gopher gravy............well maybe not all -jimbob

What a deer! I have seen this deer before, the bad thing is that instead of hearing my 270 go off I got to here my alarm clock. - Michael_Petrey10

Three cheers for the Aaron family. Somebody had to be the first gar roe eater. Now we all have fair warning to alter our menu. I'm glad that the price of this knowledge wasn't too high. Now I can go back to my roadkill cookbook and put in an addendum. -purplehead

I would participate in nuisance control, however most land owners in TX want to be paid for hunts... even hunting nuisance hogs. It has become far too commercial. I have no problem with folks hunting hogs from helicopters, however it is not the answer. The answer is these land owners opening their ranches up to select personnel for hunting, and (gasp) not expecting hunters to shell out money to help them with hogs. If land owners cannot embrace this concept then they are either too money hungry or the hog problem is not that bad. -The Captain

You're never too old to go snapper fishing. -Seadog

The roadkill should be hauled back to the prison kitchens instead of the land fill....burns me to think how much of our tax dollars are spent on feeding and housing criminals. -Bigjake photo by Michael Lehet

And on the eighth day, God created bikini ice fishing, and he saw that it was good. -Topgun777

I would try it in a heartbeat! After killing boar with knife and dogs, I can only imagine the thrill of jaguars with spears... just don't tell my wife as my hide would be hanging on the wall as well. - The Captain

A skunk ape (our local version of bigfoot) once helped me polish off a 1.5 liter bottle of Jack Daniels. I know it's true 'cause I couldn't have finished that whole bottle by myself. -Seadog photo by TheeErin

After shooting a 96 4X at 1000 yards with my open sighted Super Match M1A, a Marine Colonel turned to me putting his hand on my shoulder and said to this Air Force NCO, "Coop I'm glad your on my side"! -Old Salts photo by JG Foto_graphia

Screw HSUS and PETA the people that give them money might as well be giving it to the Taliban. These people are hypocrites and do more harm than good. -X2DKkiller photo by plasmastik

My bosses old boat name was "on the other line" so when people called and asked to speak to him guess what the answer was ... sorry he's on the other line right now -dwrote1 photo by Chrissy Olson

Call me crazy but I like the saying "happiness is a belt-fed weapon." So I'm gonna have to go with one of my all time favorites and say the M2 BMG with armor piercing incendiary rounds to start, and a MK19 40mm automatic grenade launcher. Then if [the zombies] get close enough, a 1911, and an AR firing the bushmaster 450 with a beta mag and probably a saiga auto 12 GA with slug and 00buck alternating. -rickjr

This article reminds me of a leopard attack on Carl Akeley in Africa in the early part of the 20th century. In Mr. Akeley's case, he had to strangle the leopard to death, which REALLY tore up his arm. - Colorado Samurai

Can you see me saluting Ted [Nugent] as if he was ole glory itself? He's got enuff hair on his ass for all of us but it takes all of us. I love you Ted. Your music was gift enough but you bring even more to the table. God bless you. -41magtoter

I dunno. I think I deserve a record. I am an old Bass fisherman. One time I caught a fish so big that the picture weighed 6 lbs! -blackdawgz

Dickens says it best, the passion we feel deep in our breasts to hunt. The oneness with nature and God that we feel when we're in a blind or walking the vast cornfields and crp looking for pheasants or quail cannot compare with the boring workday life most of us are forced to endure. It is this passion that gets us through our days, weeks, and seasons, until we can do it all again. And now my 10 yr old son will embark on his first season in the field. How great is this time of year?!! Good luck huntin ya all! -mlmorse63

That's a good story--sounds just like Papa Hemingway to do that. I've been itchin' to get into the iguana hunting game for a while now--so far, the lizards are just laughing at me--they must know I have to work. I better not listen to Merl Haggard or I might get inspired to "walk off my steady job today!" -seadog

Just yesterday I shot into a squirrel nest and a squirrel came flying out. I did it to the same squirrel two days in a row. P.S. the first shot didn't kill him. -squirrel hunter

The wolf really holds to the truth that some of the most beautiful things in nature can also be it's deadliest. I hope that in the future a few SCI entries will come out of Wyoming, Montana, and the likes. -grmustangs

The last person to punch me in the face--and actually intend to do me harm--was a large-boned woman in a bar in New Orleans' French Quarter who was none-too-happy that I was making out with her girlfriend. -DivineStrake

In our deer camp the youngest hunter stokes the woodstove at night, if he doesn't uphold his duty, his boots are filled with water and put outside to freeze. - Big Jake

Thank God for gals like Dr. Ball! She makes women and salt water fishing what it should be. Dr Ball, I think I feel a fever coming on. -birdhunter32

It's good you're OK, but running from any bear, even during a charge, is a bad idea. Most bears veer away. Even a can of pepper spray could very well have deterred it--you can fire it from its holster. -Bluedog Alaska

94. I would not waste time--put a bullet in it and be done. Baboons are more dangerous than people think. People have been killed by them. They tear out your eyes, bight your hands, and genitals.--Marinesniper44
96. I have long wondered what might happen if one of the conservation organization giants were to step up and make an offer to PETA and HSUS....a fundraising challenge, so to speak...if PF, DU and NWTF were to challenge the so-called animal rights organizations to pony up millions of dollars, matching funds from the conservation organizations, to go towards habitat protection and purchase....how would PETA and HSUS explain their negative responses to their members?--Crosbychief

99. Guns kill people just like forks made Rosie O'Donell fat.--Old Salts
100. Somewhere in the deepest recess of my brain, I seem to recall a history teacher telling me that the meat the old time mountain men preferred was cougar, even given a choice...Not too sure I ever believed it...--Montanagyrene
