Anyone looking forward to hunting season?

PostBy: jpete On: Sat Aug 03, 2013 9:09 am

Just dropped my bow off for a new string and a cam change to adjust the draw length.

Anyone want to get together and scout some locations?

need to go get my Pa license. haven't had one in about 16 years,,, need to blow dust of old license so i don't have to take hunter safety course. Know Pa has no record of me taking it, was from another state 43 years ago. Remember the course real well, another guy(kid) damn near blew his foot off when closing the break open breach. DoooH!! SURPRISE, SURPRISE!!!! Must have had safety off and itchy finger on trigger. needless to say he was done with course, had to reshedule for another time.

RD, I guess you don't know, they don't need no stinking tag it falls under religious freedom some how or other, same goes for fishing. :o I'm thinking they mostly can the meat or make an awful lot of jerky I'll have to ask next time I'm talking to some.

MA just switched everything online. Permits, tags, check-in -- everything is done online now. Pissed alot of people off in the process too.

So ... how many tags you guys need? (printer screaming and spitting pages everywhere ..) :lol:

Only thing you can't cheat on is doe permits. Those are applied for online ... then you have to return to the site after August 1st to see if you "won" - they;re drawn by lottery ... somehow (electronic lottery???) .

MA has got to be the WORST damn state in the union for anything online. They make otherwise simple tasks an hour-long affair that sends your blood pressure through the roof!! After navigating Mass.gov, the only hunting I feel like doing is for idiots on Beacon Hill! :mad: (THAT WAS A JOKE NSA ... You goons do know what a JOKE is, right? :roll:)

I had to take everyone's credit cards to my house to get their permits for them, after they got so frustrated they gave up. How difficult would it be - SERIOUSLY - to put ONE LINK that goes DIRECTLY to permit sales???? Guess they don't require knowledge of computers for MA state computer programming jobs. Must be nice to have a 10th cousin in the legislature ... MASS, YOU SUCK!! :middlefinger: ;)

Want to play a game? Google MA hunting license, and see how long it takes you to figure out how the hell to buy one!

The only thing this will do,is to help all the anti-hunting people purchase a licence or doe tag to keep the real hunters from hunting and help keep the animal population in control,or putting meat on the table. Hunting is not all about killing.

I've lost that hunting itch I used to get. :( Last year my neighbor leased thier land to a hunting club, i got a sorry we arent excepting any more folks into club outta that one oh well. Hunted state game lands, each time I made it back to vehicle a state game officer was waiting asking what I was doing?! Its like really fella camo gun orange take a guess guy WTF. All the last farmers around here leased out and hunting clubs want too much money. Oh well i get just as much satisfaction poppin some clay birds anymore. Brother in law has a farm (hunting rights leased) but he manages to hook me up with some deer meat every once in awhile from his crop control hits.

Smitty, I'll join you in Boston, if I can get a hand down on Smith Hill! They make your politicians look competent.

In all actuality, we can't blame them. It's the blind to the world voters in Providence.

Is it possible to hijack my own thread? :D

I wouldn't blame the "voters" in Providence. I don't actually believe they exist. I think there is a team of state workers stuffing boxes in the basement of Providence city hall.

I always enjoy the look on the poll workers face when slide my ballot into the machine and ask, "Is it supposed to make that whirring, grinding noise when I do that?" :D

I was just gonna say the exact same thing JPete. I refuse to believe I live in a state with THAT many braindead morons. It's just not physically possible! 5 decades of a man who murdered a young woman? No human being is that soul-less, dumb or dead inside. The system in MA has been rigged for decades.

As far as hunting goes, the season comes and goes so fast I don't even bother with the permit anymore. I never have time to hunt anyway. Why give even more of my money to the state?

Seems like hunting is becoming less and less attractive with to younger generations. I anticipate the state will pay for people to help control deer population in the future. But that's the trend now. Kids are interested in video screens more and active sporting less.

Too an extent, when the only place to hunt has a person every 40 yards it really is a drag.

On Martha's Vinyard & Nantucket, there is a doe permit for anyone that wants to go .... but who the hell can afford that hunting trip?? :roll: Besides, I doubt the progressive anti-gun yuppies on either island are going to let you fire a shotgun anywhere near their property. It's probably bow, or no-go. Oh well - guess the residents like lyme! :shock:

Must be lyme disease central over there. Been hearing the deer population is out of control - that's the reason for the doe permits being guaranteed.

That's what you get for being a militant anti-hunting vegan. My heart bleeds for ya. Better get to the doctors for that test, you little pansies! :lol: :D
