Re: How to hunt?

Oh, I dunno. There's a learning curve.

Sometimes people don't get raised as hunters, don't have a father, older brother, or favorite uncle who can show them the ropes. Sometimes a guy decides to hunt game he's never gone after before, or in an area/terrain/weather he's never hunted before.

I think "How to hunt" is a legitimate question.

Now golf... That's never appealed to me!

Regards, Guy

Golf: A waste of a perfectly good rifle range.

Re: How to hunt?

I grew up hunting but..........Dad had poor equipment and still does, he had very limited range and perspective. Dad had a uphill from the road philosophy , never down hill and that almost never worked. He had a limited understanding of the animals he hunted. I remember several frustrated years of hunting but no recollection of ever seeing binoculars used on those hunts. I remember hearing "do not even look down there we would be all night getting it out if we shot something down there", many times hearing "yep it's an elk but it's a cow and the bulls will not be with cows in october. Truth is I love my Dad but an effective hunter he is not. I was so frustrated that I quit hunting altogether for several years. My wife's uncle needed an elk hunting partner half a dozen years back and invited me along, He had a totally different approach: Whatever it takes and wherever they go you go. I took his philosophy integrated a long range scientific solution to improve it and now we fill our tags every year. I shot mine at 522 about five minutes after he shot his at 680 couple days after my wife shot hers at 400.........(All using my rifle).......I have to build them each there own cannon so I am not sharing mine..................Point is: some folks could use and appreciate a different perspective....................and......dad was right, sometimes it takes all night to pack them up out of there but thats elk hunting.

I'm with the mentor idea.

I do that every chance I get.
