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.
