Don't get me wrong, I'd kill a yote every time, but I found the whole video a little disturbing. Every living thing at least deserves some respect... with the possible exception of oppossums ;) Yes, finishing the yote off was right, but making a game or a joke out of killing a terrified animal is ju...

I'm a little new to this as well, but I've seen posts here where x-bows have been left cocked for a few days without dmage. I'm not recommending it, but leaving it cocked in your stand is no problem.

I would NOT sling it over my back cocked. You're just asking for an accident.

First, I've had a few good things from Sportsman'a Guide, but I've also had them misrepresent enough things to make me stop buying from them. As far as the meat temps go, I took a doe in an early Sept. hunt. I processed her the same day due to warm temps. I have a grinder that I purchased from Meije...

Good post.
Carrying a knife is just a good idea anyway. For me, a sharp knife is just part of my daily life. I haven't been a day without one in over 35 years.
I think that it's a shame that we now live in a world where kids can't even carry a pocket knife to school anymore.

A 5 yard shot isn't such a deal... holding your spot while he's at 5 yards would be the real test. THAT takes some stones.

There will alway be deer, but before you know it, you'll be looking at a grown son and wondering where all those years went, and your lap will be empty.
Kids are like an investment; your steady attention will produce dividends that you can only dream of.

Well, by now you must be seeing a theme. lot's of good advice here. Congratulations on cutting up your own deer! I took my first deer to a butcher. Never again. They make their money by doing it as fast as they can. There are many good books and DVDs on the subject, but I learned on my own. I lay an...

Sorry to point out the obvious, but the DNR is a government run agency. Need I say more? As far as where I live? I'll admit that I do complain about the snow and the cold. The griping seems to have gotten worse as I've gotten older, but maybe it's just that I need something to grouse about or I'm no...
