I don't know if hunting offends anyone here but I figure that if it did tehy just wouldn't click on it. I got my first deer when I was 13 but that was the only time I ever used a gun for hunting, except my first duck hunt. Other than those 2 times I use a compound bow. It makes it more exciting and the rush can't be described. I've only got one deer but we usually get turkey or hog. It's kind of like a rite of passage among my family (and I assume it is among alot of southern families). I'm not into that trophy shit though, that's just arrogant, we usually only hunt for thanksgiving and the July 4th/New Year's hog roast. Or we hunt a hog whenever there is a celebration to be had in teh family. Plus there is added excitement since hogs can be very dangerous. When I was younger I saw my grandaddy approach a hog he thought was finally dead and it went buck wild when he got up on it. He took out his bowie knife and sliced it right where its hind legs met its gut. Shit was pretty graphic, I saw it's "innards" slowly fall out. That's when I knew that I had to carry on tradition. I may be going next month to bag a hog for my cousin's anniversary. But we usually don't fuck around with game reserves because those people like to be bitches. Wanna tell you how big of a hog or deer you can hunt. Then they wanna tell you that you can't stalk. Sorry, but sitting in one place with all that GPS and shit takes away the rush of burying your clothes in teh ground the night before and rubbing dirt allover yourself before you creep through the woods like homeboy from Metal Gear. Anyone else enjoy the wilderness ?
