OK now I am offended, IRISH is the king of whiskeys. Bourbon is for cooking.
Bourbon is both the king of drinking and cooking
I spent the morning hunting with an old friend. Did so much laughing sitting in the blind together talking about old times no wonder we didn't see a deer. I had a great time.
Finally caved and ordered some first lite stuff, worth the price from what ive heard.
Y'all keep arguing about whiskey, just excuse me while I go drink some. I like bourbon, Irish, and scotch as long as it's decent I'll drink it.
An Abbreviated History of Booze- by C3
Scotch was made of malted barley, dried over a peat fire. The Irish could not get enough barley, so they used barley and wheat. They were also using peat to heat and cook with, so they did not smoke their malted grain.
When the colonists wound up in Virginia, there was a profound shortage of peat and or barley. But there was a good supply of corn in Charles Cittie VA- the area around Berkeley Plantation. So in 1621, they malted their corn, fermented their mash, and distilled their whiskey in a pot still. Trying to improve the taste of some really potent popskull, they stored it in oak casks that had been charred on the inside. and THAT is the definition of Bourbon.
Thus was distilled the first Bourbon whiskey. In Virginia, NOT in Kentucky. At that time, there WAS no Kentucky- it would later be split off from Virginia.
What’s strange is these are the only animals she has encountered in civilization, I generally hit them with bullets in the woods.
I've been lucky, so far. 40+ years of driving, and a good dozen near-miss encounters with deer. But not a single strike.
Closest was a good-sized buck leaping down from the hillside onto the roadway not 20ft in front of me, as I approached in the car. He simply followed the headlights along the twisty, turning road. It was steep and narrow, with speed at ~30mph or so. He kept a foot or two off the bumper. Leapt off the drop-off to my left, soon after.
Had a pair of those "anti-deer whistles," once, that mount to the bumper or grille area. Had more encounters over the next couple of years, though that was probably coincidence.
Come to think of it, it's probably been 10yrs or more since I last saw one get close.
Always drive much more cautiously at "feeding" times, though. You never know.
Those things are deer attractors, proven Ineffective.
My god, man! You put them on BACKWARDS!!!!
Does your mama know you're out here alone?
You probably shot mama
I used to have a T-shirt. Said "I shot Bambi's Daddy"
Ah laddie, we Jocks know a bit about the grain and the drink, too now!
Saw a municipal bus today down in Portland Maine run a red light.
I try to avoid shooting does with fawns, even though they're old enough to be on their own just fine. I like the mythical and rare "old dry lone doe"
Somebody let their dog out today and it was running deer just short of biting legs. I thought about pulling the trigger on it but I just yelled at it and sent it home. The owner is the one that deserves the bullet, not the dog just feeding on old instincts.
Looks like the Arecibo radio telescope is now toast. Several of the remaining supports snapped.

My phone is in the grave... Literally. The only possible explanation is that it fell out of my hoody pocket and into the dirt pile which then got pushed into the hole. Just my luck, at least it was an old phone. I ordered a slightly newer one.
Oh,oh. You'd better watch out for the
Tried ringing it?
I always get the older models, save some money
