    Reality is something more people should try getting in touch with.

    We have that predatory species here in Canada too........very dangerous and cunning and the average heterosexual male has no chance avoiding capture.

    I remember when dove hunters used to dress, act and speak like gentlemen.
    And firing guns right over populated areas with men working in tractors?
    Come now! You've been out in that SoCal desert sun too long, boys!

    PS- Is that a flammable fuel tank you're shooting in front of?
    I just noticed something Jon that has me curious. You stated in this post that you remember when dove hunters used to dress, act, and speak like gentlemen. That would suggest you were around them and possibly participated in dove hunts to come to that conclusion.

    Over on the main board you said Howdy from Boise and how you are so new to wing shooting with a romanticized monologue.

    Which is it?

    We all have first amendment rights and can post our mind here. It is America after all. But I have to be honest with you, most of your posts and recently created threads are out there. Transgendered bird boys, Dictionary lookup of the meaning of the word Mark? I just question your intentions. Why did you join RTF? Are you here to learn about training a dog or troll this website?

    Dove are delicious possibly my favorite protein on the planet. I like hunting dove in large groups in order to accumulate a number of birds sufficient to feed a horde at the after hunt party. Dove hunting is a social occasion and requires people in order to be social. If all you like is being alone I probably wouldn't like hunting with you. But hey I like the duck hunting the blind with 10 to 16 people there's nothing like and 80 bird limit and a little laughing and cutting up to make people enjoy your hunt.

    I would hunt with those boys at that grain elevator site any day!

    Perhaps because I did't grow up hunting with my dad and a bunch of his friends, or perhaps because ALL the land I have ever hunted on is private and everyone there had to have permission, I prefer to hunt dove alone or with one or maybe two other hunters. Same goes for duck hunting (the little of that I do), but I also spend lots of time alone in photo blinds, or possibly with one other photographer. In photography, animals need to come much closer than they do in general hunting, so being solitary ups the odds of getting the photo. I have NEVER seen a coyote or bobcat when I had anyone else in the blind. Solitude in nature can be very therapeutic. Folks dancing and joking around would probably annoy me.

    I had the good fortune to grow up in a place where hunting was and is very good. I've shot enough limits with my buddies. While I do like 8-12 gun pheasant hunts, I prefer to be alone when I hunt or with my dad, whether bird or mammal.

    While I don't carry a handgun to protect from mountain lions or terrorists, I see that as being an individual's prerogative.

    I had a next door neighbor with an outdoor variety show. It ultimately revolved around an old motor home and alcoholic beverages, then transitioned into "pay to play" commercial "hunting" that was all about pimping the sponsors. My point is, this guy didn't know how to properly field dress and animal, let alone butcher one and that is the type of individual representing hunters in the media. Hunting is a big way in which I connect to God and nature. I don't like to see that experience mocked. At the same time, it really doesn't matter what I think as everyone is free to go about it their own way.
