Re: Minnesota officials bemoan deer stand 'mansions'
I have never been a hunter but I have been hunting before. What ever happened to th day when you had a damn 2 x 2 platform to stand on, with a little tiny piece of wood to sit on. Had the Warner's in your gloves, shoes, and that big red heated cushion thing to try and sit on. If your going out there to kill something man the ell up!
I knw a guy that is on a hunting club. I say Its a slaughter club, they go out 30 deep, put like 10 in stands and the rest go a good distance away and drive the deer to the shooters. In a weekend they come home with like 50-60 deer, and they tupically go on a hunting trip that is a week long. Imgine hw many they are coming home with in 7 days. That is not the sport of hunting, that is cheating. When he hunts on his own, he puts bait down a few weeks in advance. So they get used to going o hs stand to eat. Its just wrong, and sounds like there is no sport in it.
Now I alo know another guy that has not shot a deer in like 3 years. He has been in his stand, and seen them. But either they were too small, n a clear enough shot, or too far away to shoot. Now that is the sport of hunting!
It's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years......
