Thank-you kindly everyone for your nice wishes.
Patti and I are celebrating my 55th in Iowa right now.
Being with my love on a Sunshine, Blue Sky Day is all I need, and all I want.
If that's all you need, crate up that Mustang and send it south!!!!

:eusa-whistle:

Happy B-day!

Re: WI xbow season

I just watched the crossbow portion of the webcast. The individual pushing this is now going back to the DNR for more statistical information and I can guarantee that this will continue to be pushed even though new legislation may not occur for 2 years. Two years will go by fast. As I said, this guy...

Re: WI xbow season

https://www.buckrubarchery.com/ "The Midwest's bowhunting and CROSSBOW Authority". Scroll halfway down on the face page where it says they won't be undersold on any bow or CROSSBOW . But the owner wants to restrict the crossbow season and wrote the question promoting exactly that. Where are the cros...

Re: WI xbow season

The good news is that the WI DNR Spring Hearing results are in and the question aiming at restricting the WI crossbow season was defeated statewide by a vote of 3164 NO to 2660 YES. (54 counties NO, 18 counties YES) While it is a crossbow win for now, this will continue to receive pressure. It seems...

Re: WI xbow season

I just sent Ravin a copy of the question and my perspective that they are at least partially to blame for this.

The REALLY sad part is that Ravin is headquartered in Superior, WISCONSIN!!

Re: WI xbow season

So you think the WI crossbow season will survive as is? Guess again, here is a copy of the crossbow question on the WI DNR Spring Public meeting advisory questionnaire. I can almost guarantee that we are going to lose the rut if this gets adopted. It is the single most prejudiced and leading questio...

thunder, here's an article detailing some of the stats re xbow use for deer in WI


Goose, THANKS!! for the link.

While I actually know the author, I didn't see the article (mostly because I gave up my Journal-Sentinel subscription when they wanted to double my rate last summer).

Re: Black Bear as tabel fair

I don't know that I could qualify as an "expert", but I've taken 4 black bear between 230 & 410 lbs and ate them all. Handled, processed and cooked correctly the steaks/loins are excellent, one of my favorite wild game meats. Bear makes excellent sausage, especially pepperoni. (Just ate a couple pep...

Re: Wisconsin Crossbow Trial time frame ending

Maybe you WI residents can enlist Ravin’s help for continuing inclusion. They seem to have your best interest at heart. Yeah, the ironic part is that two of the "100 yard" crossbow manufacturers are located here in WI, Mission and Ravin. I hope they step up to the plate if necessary when it counts.
