Default Putting meat on the table:

There was/is quite a ‘discussion’ in the rifle forum going on about sniping equipment, what necessary, what’s true, the difference between paper targets and hunting live game, etc.

One of the story tellers up in these parts relates how during WWII they couldn’t get any bullets. They were all going to the armies, England & Russia’s and after we entered, ours. This was a problem up here back then because people took the game for meat.

So what to do? Well, his family had a split rail fence around the homestead. They would put salt on one of the top rails of the fence. The deer would come up to the fence and lick off the salt. The deer would get used to the salt licks and the family, and this would go on for a while.

Then some winter evening, when the nights were getting real cold, the family would replace the top rail with an iron pipe. The deer, being creatures of habit, would still come to lick the salt off.

In the morning they would free the does by pouring hot water on the pipe and they would clock one of the bucks with a peavey. That’s how they got their meat for the winter.

No marksmanship involved.

That is one weird form of trapping, but you gotta keep your people fed.

Never heard that one before but a buddy of mine who lives near a state park campground found that the deer had gotten used to eating out of peoples hands so he started doing the same thing. Once in awhile he would pull his .38 out of his back pocket and pop one in the head while it was eating out of his hand.

I never condoned it, but that was some good venison!

He started eating out of people's hands, too? He better be careful. Someone might pop him in the head with a .38. LOL

Basically, was just a language error. Too funny to pass up.

One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas.




How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know..........

when I was younger we use to go to a scout camp way out in BF egypt the animals where so use to humans they would get within 10 yards of us, we had old army tents (open flaps) one morning I woke up to because I heard a noise. All it took was some quick knife work and a walk to get a fresh propane tank and we were having koon for breakfast.

Somehow I imagine coon to be greasy and fatty. How was it? I don't know how you'd stab a coon without getting pretty beat up yourself. They can be FIERCE AND STRONG.
