    Just wondering how many OT'ers out there hunt? I love target shooting...but if that's all you ever do, your really missing out. Also it really shows how comfortable you actually are with your weapon...aiming at a immoveable peice of paper and a live animal is a lot different.

    Here's a picture of my lastest hunting trip...Alaskan Black Bear hunt in April. :rl:

    Did you eat the bear? Seems like it'd be a crazy amount of meat.

    I don't really have too much experience with hunting but I'm going to get into it this fall/winter. I'm already signed up for the Hunter's Safety Class provided by the FWC.

    Deer hunting is all I've ever done, would like to try some other stuff sometime soon like hog, and maybe a trip somewhere for some big game.

    Naw...you're required to carry out the meat but it's not worth eating. Some bear meat is supposed to be ok in jerky, but where these bear are are and what they're eating, the meat is supposed to be pretty bad haha.

    It's a 12 gauge. I didn't know if it'd be ok with just the 18" barrel or if it'd be better with the Benelli with a longer barrel.

    I think I'll go out back and shoot a few dove for dinner tonight. :yum:

    I'm scheduled for a three day hunt November 19-21. Get to shoot a trophy whitetail, a doe, and all the hogs I want:big grin:

    The one I shot last year. I've posted it before:

    Sounds like alot of work to get to the point of shooting dinner and then a lot of squishy work to get to the point of getting it ready to eat. I must confess, I hunt for meat on styrofoam with plastic wrap over it. I won't turn down venison in its assorted forms when its offered though.

    I have to ask just how much meat do you get off a squirrl anyway? It seems like it'd be about like trying to eat a chicken wing.

    i hunt pretty much whatever is in season. i do both bow and gun hunting. i do all my own meat processing too. with squirrel, you won't get gobs of meat, but it's enough for one serving per squirrel. they clean out quick and easy though, so it actually isn't too much work.

    nothing against hunting wild game, but I just don't consider it fun to sit out in freezing temps for hours in the hopes that something will come by. its more fun to me to just shoot my gun, even it its at paper and water bottles.
