lets see some patriots with there kills.
>no eurocucks we all know there arent aloud to hunt its to savage for them
deer, moose, black bear and a little bit of elk in here for you
Haven't gotten anything this year. Slug gun group at 25 yards tho
Not hunting per se but a cool pic of a Morray Eel i speared
Here's my blind, built it on my family's property in northern michigan, its heated, has a "toilet", has windows that are insulated on all sides, and makes for a cozy bedroom when I feel like it.
Killed 3 this year, two doe and an 8 point.
Preferred gun is my browning BPS
ill be quite honest that buck was a complete fluke it was getting down to the final days of whitetail season, all i could see was his front bit of his right antler ranged him at about 175 yards and shot i had no idea how big he was untill i got up too him he scored 197 1/8 B&C.
i also call my self a selective hunter i try and pass on the small guys to shoot a bigger one but filling the freezer is more important. ill always initailly pass on a small guy but if i see him again in the same day ill shoot him
I dont have a hunting license, or gun + aqusition license yet.
I used to hunt as a kid with my dad, but thats about it. Ive never made a kill yet on big game. I have only ever killed a partridge and a couple turkeys.
Any advice for writing the tests?
Killed this guy on some farmland in MO. My first big deer. I had only ever been hunting in south Carolina pine forest and the deer are quite small there. Was great out in MO. Spent a week out there with my dad and uncle. They go every year. This was my first time since I'm finally out of college and don't have school to worry about.
I like how venison taste. And how did horse taste during WW2? Ask your grandmother.
Pic related is my hog gun while I'm in based Florida
I'll hunt whatever DEEP (CT'S version of DNR) says we can take, but if they want a focus on bucks I usually let the good ones go by. I want those genes passed on. I'd rather get a couple spikers or atypical bucks.
Just my way.
>He's never experienced the sense of accomplishment of taking wild game, butchering it, and cooking it up himself like a real man
Seriously nigger, I made some venison pot roast a few weeks back that will put your great grandmas ancient italian recipes to shame.
Please allow me to apologise for my faglordish, communist compatriot.
Here there are a lot of people who hunt but somehow the expenses and regulations often aren't worth the lack of hunting game available.
Here, have a pic of my humble stash as a gift.
You must be one insuffrable lazy fuck. Canada and the US have supermarkets on every fucking street. If I wanted, I could go buy venison and be done with it.
I like hunting because its a competition, the ultimate competition. When you finally kill your prey its a massive moment of accomplishment. Its not easy, it rewuires you to wait hours, days sometimes without seeing anything resembling a deer/hog/elk/bear/coyote.
Not to mention the fact that its a powerful tradition in both my family and my country.
It's a lot cheaper to hunt than to buy meat, it's all organic if you're into that, and if you don't want to make your own cuts you can support a local butcher.
>part of American and Canadian culture
>only whites hunt here, it provides a nigger- free community
>why kill if it serves no purpose other than "i killed my own game, look i'm a man"
You can eat and have fun at the same time. Not to mention that regulated hunting helps a lot in funding animal preservation institutes
in germany are nearly 4000000 registered hunters, so no i'm not a mad eurocuck. i would hunt if my survival depends on it but it doesnt.
killing for fun is the pinnacle of human evolution, thx for enlightening me.
Yeah, bullshit that will work properly for a lifetime just by regular cleaning and lubrication. Shall I do like the other Italians, getting cucked with their smartphones that need to be changed every 3 to 4 years? Or the other very Italian thing, getting mad at their soccer team, after paying that shitty sat TV service to have all the matches on the TV plus raging at Formula1 or motogp...
Go choke dicks in your throat idiot. Go to a betting center or vlt/slot bar and fuck off
I'm all for hunting. For food, for pest control, hell I shoot squirrels on a friend of a friends property for free, just because I like shooting... I just can't shoot a deer though. They're too damn cute. How can I get over it? I'm afraid I'll get asked to hunt deer one day and I don't wanna seem like a chickenshit and say no.
Me and my sister took a wee trip to Scotland to shoot these, she's fairly new to it and I let her hold the trophy, the gamekeeper took it in the end but we did get some venison as a souvenir from a past hunter.
go kill terrorist if you want to play with big boy guns that badly
who feels badass for killing animals. its not like you're risking your own life
Culling herds and removing pests is vital for the countryside and agricultural industry. If people didn't go out and shoot rabbits, deer, birds, hogs etc they would gobble up all the crops in our farms.
You're an idiot.
Nice kill but damn that shot placement is horrible.
Who here said hunting was considered "manly" our women hunt too and enjoy it. I know you feel emasculated that you cannot do what we do, but here in america we actually do shoot terrorist.
T. Garland texas
i feel like our understanding of fun and pride are diametrically opposed. in no way i object hunting for pest control, but everything else is useless in our society. live in your little pride world and be happy.
They don't shoot the fox, the hounds kill it.
Fox hunting is already illegal but still happens all over the country every week, the hunt says that they are simply using an artificial fox scent but if a fox appears and the hounds chase it, what can you do? :^)
>only whites hunt here, it provides a nigger- free community
I find it hard to believe no one but whites hunt near you. There are plenty of black hunters in Alaska, and that's like our double hat on top of you.
Just kill something deadly so you would be able to take your intelligent mind in a deadly body and go kill some fuck human to go back.
>inb4 you get the animal mind
well fuck off that is suicide then.

Holy shit the snobbery.
You don't even know what hunting is you yurocuck faggot. Cut the "muh ancestors" bullshit because the era of great Europeans is over. It's dead. Your populations are so cowardly there has been no greatness since WW2.
Hunting in the UK explicitly refers to horse and hound chasing down a quarry, they aren't dogs either, always referred to as hounds.
Shotgun shooting is still a major pass time within the UK and even bigger than hunting, clay pigeon, driven shoots, walked up shoots, waterfowling, pigeon shooting, rabbit stalking are all very popular.
All you need to do to own a shotgun is simply have a valid reason i.e "I want to join a clay pigeon club" and then install gun cabinet, which are as cheap as £50.
Death is natural you faggot. Being raised in your bubble has insulated you from this, but it's true. Individual lives of animals, like people, do not matter. At all. The only importance is what you give it.
I'm in Ontario. (the least white province) Muslims never hunt, chinks never hunt (but they do break our fish and game laws when fishing), blacks all stay in the city. It's great. The natives have unregulated hunting but not that many live in Ontario.

It is a heap of fun, there is an added level of difficulty because of the need to get closer as well as a bow requiring a little more finesse. I had to get within about 20 metres.
I've actually never tried it, these were the first I've shot and it was just for pest control at my grandmother's. I'll eat one of the next ones though.
I'm surrounded by liberals and Muslims. As a matter of fact, my town has the most Muslims in Canada percentage wise, and is second only to Toronto in sheer numbers.
But I have friends and property up North, one day I'll move there.

I couldn't just let him run off and die and had no other way.... Trust me, It's not like I enjoyed it. I literally cried a bit waiting. Still feel shitty about it to this day, and will never forget a back-up firearm when out hunting.

I got a 562 pound boar last week with my crossbow.
I've seen bigger but it's pretty large, didn't get a picture.
Made sweet & sour pork, stripped some future bacon off, put a bunch of cuts into the freezer with my salmon. I'm making a pipe out of the tusks for weed and giving the bones to the dogs.
Say what you will about drugs but I've gotten exceedingly good at making pipes. Even if I didn't smoke I'd probably still make them because it's relaxing craftsmanship.
Next month I'm going up into the mountains to hunt some elk, get to test my HK417 innawoods.

I think a lot of it was just sensory overload. Mad at myself for shooting when I knew the shot would be fucked, sad for the deer (the sounds, and the actual expressions on it's face as I cut), serious adrenaline from what just happened. The deer knew what I was doing, and I could see in it's eyes it knew. It was a very humbling and ego-demolishing few minutes before he died.
It stood up before I could really even begin to cut. It would have ended in the same situation. Plus, have you ever tried to slit a deer throat with the skin on and it's still alive? it's a-lot harder than it seems
It depends on how you cook it and where you get it. The ones in northern Oregon are okay but the ones I got up near Washington tasted similar to Moose; it had that algae-ish tint to it if you know what I mean.
You want it to have fat on it along with muscle, the ones that look like body builders usually taste like shit.
Sorry no photos on the new box here but how about a big frickin' salmon?
No. I fucked up by taking the shot, but had to deal with the situation I put myself in. I will never put myself in that situation again. And yes, I will totally agree that I was an idiot that day.
But I still filled my freezer with about 220 pounds of processed meats of various kinds. I was happy in the end.
As a hunter, I have to call bullshit that it's cheaper to hunt than buy meat. The amount of time I spend scouting and the amount of money i spend on tree stands, camo etc. outweighs the $2.99 a pound i pay for meat at the store.
But hunting is legit and necessary to uncuck our society.
That's part of it. I don't kill heaps of them, because it's irresponsible, but I can kill these animals and put them to good use so I lose no sleep over their passing.
And culling the herd is no meme either.
Culling the herd is the biggest hunting meme in existence. What do you propose, Jimbo, urban centres are going to crumble under hooves of an angry elk stampede?
Also your reasoning is retarded. You kill them so that you can put them to good use? Like what, other than meat? Do you render your own soaps? Do you sew your own furs?
10 bucks says that turk you're replying to has never read "The Most Dangerous Game"
I also catch and fry trout of course!
>tfw missed all of my shots or didn't shoot at all this past deer season
It was only my second year ever hunting. What are ways to overcome the anxiety of takin the shot to kill? I've killed birds before, but never large animals, and while I desperately want to get a kill, I hesitate every time. I'm not afraid, just anxious for some reason, bad case of buck fever. What are ways of getting over it so I can actually get kills next November?
who /lizardhunting/ here
>grab a badass slingshot
>go outside at 2:00 PM

>take aim at those little fuckers while they take some sunlight
Humans are just animals who developed reason. Denying that and denying yourself the inborn pleasure derived by directly providing for your own needs is preposterous. Killing is pleasurable, but not primarily for the act itself.
You idiot, if they get too numerous they're biggest threat to themselves because of food supply and disease.
And your cities are famously overrun with raccoons.
And I work in SouthEast Michigan and see multiple dead deer every day. They might not overrun cities but are already a threat to every commuter.
In australia culling is essential to keep introduced pests under controll aswell as certain native species like kangaroos that can become a pest to the environment due to overpopulation.
Apparently they have a massive amount of extremely thin bones lining the body which makes it difficult to clean them, the taste is nothing special, and they are very hard to kill without them fighting back.
Kind of like Salt Cod, but superior, generally very tasty. The underside has no bones and makes fantastic fillet, but the upper side is so boney its a huge pain in the ass. Better to just make a soup with it, also very tasty. The kill is the best part of the thrill
Do you breath out steadily before taking the shot? That's incredibly common advice but not a lot of people take it in full for some reason.
Once you get your first kill that anxiety should fade pretty quickly, it's normal.
Looking back again, It was a really stupid way I tried to do it. I should not have had my legs straddling his body, but was pretty worried about being in front of him. I honestly didn't think he would stand up and start to run. He seemed to be barely breathing at the moment and looked almost dead as it was.
If hunters didn't kill them you'd have overpopulation since there are fewer natural predators, their populations would peak out, they'd destroy the enviornment, then there would be massive die off and shit would get out of hand.
Australia seems like the best place on the planet in terms of diversity of small game hunting. Especially with the invasive species.
If the gun laws weren't even more cucked than Canada's, I'd want to go hunt roos, dingoes and camels and shit.
You're a fool. Either cull the herd or disease will for you. And it'll spread to your livestock, too.
Let me guess, you have never left the city? You have no idea what animals are really like outside of television and the general notion that animals are your friend. The number of deer taken every year by hunters is still not enough for their population to stop growing. I can kill, therefore I will especially because it benefits my family. Fuck off back to your safe suburban life and stay there.
>Hunting is part of our history and heritage in Canada and the US
>eurocucks will never know the feeling of dropping a big mule deer or whitetail.
your truly missing out
Were you hunting with fucking grenades?
Not that I can recall doing. I usually get over excited when I see a deer, being so new, and I think that also adds to it. I hunt in a shotgun only area of my state, which unfortunately means that taking my gun to the range would e super costly with the price o slugs being about $.75 a shell.
They hunt over there a lot though.
Sometimes with the biggest of eagles.
But often with rifles too.
That was just my cut. We made 100 pounds, I got 33. most batches of stuff we make 100#. Processed stuff is 60/40 pork to venison. Helps cut down any game taste and stretches it a bit further. Any burger is just venison tho, no pork or fat added.
In Greece where i live off school. The small ones are my brothers since i was teaching him to speargun fish. I caught an octopus, and decided to use it as bait. If you bang the octopus on the rocks (which is also good for eating later) and rub it on them also, the smell permeates the water. Place it under a rock and wait with a spear (not speargun). Pretty soon they will come for their favorite snack and when they start biting you strike. They thrash so much they make the water look boiling
The most common sea fish you will find in rocky coasts in Greece
So, let's go back, oh, say, three centuries. Humanity has barely spread itself in any meaningful numbers throughout the North American continent. Sure, they hunted with more frequency, but the population of America in 1700 was a fraction what it is now, meaning the number of hunters is a fraction of what it is now.
So why didn't the environment collapse for the MILLENNIA leading up to the point at which the brave American took the great burden of culling the herd upon his back as the one thin sliver of authority between civilization and environmental collapse?
Get a BP rifle. It's cheaper to shoot, more accurate, and you can hunt earlier in the season.
Plus it's fun as fuck.
Because there were more predator species you cuck. Did you not learn this shit in school? We intentionally keep things like wolves, cougars, brown bears, and other shit down so they don't kill people, their pets, and most importantly, cattle.
> I want to hunt but I live in the city and I have nobody that'll teach me to gut, skin and carve up the meat
To tame an eagle you have to devote several hours a day for its entire life to the bird.
I know a guy who flies falcons. Eagles and owls are the toughest to tame.

I'd love to, that way I could extend my season by about a week, but I go with my girlfriends family, which yields a group of about 20, and I don't know if any of them hunt during muzzle loader season
Oh fuck yes. The heart and eyes are amazing.
People always look at me like it's gross to eat the heart but it's so fucking good.
The face meat is also really good and so many people neglect it.
take a course and join hunting communities
>litterally canadians and americans left
Best part is no Muslims and chinks because they don't know how to hunt.
So, North America was controlled by the wolves? What the hell are you even suggesting you fool? Humans got here and started picking off non-edible wolves in such insane numbers that the deer population literally ran itself out of control?
I think you are intensely misunderstanding the course of civilization in North America. 90% of Canadian land is exactly as it was 500 years ago. Human beings have barely scratched the surface of the continent in terms of development which is significant enough to impact natural predators to the degree you're proposing.
Going out once a month and killing an elk or two is not in any meaningful way impacting the elk population.
Hunting or disease? Do you really think hunting kills off elk anywhere near to the numbers that disease does? Before humanity had any serious presence in this continent, what do you think happened? If it was simply disease that kept things in check, then why would that change simply because we got here?
Out here the stripers can get legit fucking huge.
Not me but amazing fish there.

Thanks senpai, they look like living paintings.
Has anyone ever hunted one of these things?
There are youtube videos on how to gut animals, but everyone has their own way. It's not hard, you just gotta get elbow deep or deeper to cut away the "sack" that holds the intestines to the spine of the animal inside the gut cavity, then cut the esophagus as far up the neck as possible, cut out around the asshole while not hitting the bladder (you gotta split the pelvis with an axe or something once it's skinned to get the bladder out). Skinning is one of the easiest parts, just time consuming if you are keeping the pelt for later use (I make slippers from the hides). Butchering is easy, but you need a place to store all the meat. It is much more simple than people think, but very tough at the same time. Lots of hard work and prep, sometimes miles of hiking and dragging the body (location depending). It is an extremely satisfying feeling when you start cooking up the very first steak you ever butchered from a wild animal you harvested.
Absolutely, tasty as fuck and can be cooked in many ways. Hitting it on the rock makes it softer and removes the strong chewiness of its meat (Greek tradition says 40 times on the rock) and then rubbing it on the rock in the shallows. Basically the same thing you do to make it soft and remove slime attracts the Morray. You can see 2 legs being cut short where the eels bit.
>So, North America was controlled by the wolves?
Well that and the Native Americans.
> Humans got here and started picking off non-edible wolves in such insane numbers that the deer population literally ran itself out of control?
Exactly that. Also predatory species require more territory, and as population centers expanded and just general animal-human interactions increased, the predator numbers went down.
>I think you are intensely misunderstanding the course of civilization in North America. 90% of Canadian land is exactly as it was 500 years ago. Human beings have barely scratched the surface of the continent in terms of development which is significant enough to impact natural predators to the degree you're proposing.
You're a moron.
>Going out once a month and killing an elk or two is not in any meaningful way impacting the elk population.
You do realize thats not how hunting working right? There are seasons, you get a certain number of elk you can kill (tags), etc.. Also it works on scale when you have hundreds of thousands of people doing it. Also America is very different than Canada, we have it even worse with our decline of natural predators.
Japanese are based. And the civil blacks in the States are pretty cool too. Canada is full of Muslims and Chinese in the city, it's awful.
Frankly speaking, just watching videos doesn't fully prepare you for transporting and dressing big game. You can read all the material you want but its easy to feel nervous and forget what to do the first time you drag a carcass out of the woods.
I learned that the hard way from my first deer.
Of course eventually I learned on my own but it is much easier to have someone guiding you.
>it can prevent diseases
So, what are you suggesting? That we go out there and blast every sick elk in the face before it succumbs to death so that we may dine upon its grey atrophied flesh and wear its patchy, lice-ridden furs? Or is the idea that a lot of elk close together get each other sick, so you kill enough of them so that they rarely come into contact with each other?
I'm guessing it's option 2, and if that's the case, I fail to see how your bullets accomplish anything that the natural course of disease itself wouldn't take care of. If a disease is as lethal as you claim, it would necessarily thin the herd itself. Or are you imagining a super deer flu that wipes out an entire population overnight?
Fuck ya face meat is delicious. And I agree with the eyes. Last year I had a European mount done and couldn't keep any of the face meat (didn't have time to cut it off before all of the heads got dropped off at the taxidermist). I really missed that one dinner this year...
>it can prevent diseases
It contains it yeah. Also overpopulation lends to the spread of diseases as well.
>I fail to see how your bullets accomplish anything that the natural course of disease itself wouldn't take care of.
Because it kills them quicker so it doesn't spread as far.
>the native Americans
They had almost no meaningful impact on any population or natural phenomenon at all. The numbers are simply not there. The numbers aren't even remotely close to what you propose.
>cities killed off wolves
So then what do you have to say about the 90% of Canadian land that is hundreds of miles away from any human contact at all? Is it just like a deer holocaust out there?
>You're a moron
>they give us tags n limits n stuff
You're only further proving my point by minimizing the actual prevalence and impact of hunting.
>They had almost no meaningful impact on any population or natural phenomenon at all. The numbers are simply not there. The numbers aren't even remotely close to what you propose.
Nice to see you talking about numbers but not actually providing evidence.
>So then what do you have to say about the 90% of Canadian land that is hundreds of miles away from any human contact at all? Is it just like a deer holocaust out there?
No... are you fucking retarded?
>You're only further proving my point by minimizing the actual prevalence and impact of hunting.
You do realize in the US, until they implemented tags and limits that many species of large mammals and ducks were nearly driven to extinction right? Calculated hunting and preservation is a thing you know?
Who here shellfish?
The finest mussels in the world come from Oregon.
Dungeness and red rock crabs too!
But in the wild, out there, away from cities, elk populations have been almost completely unaffected by humanity. Meaning there's no one to cull the herd. Which apparently is the primary reason half of you delusional sociopaths hunt in the first place.
>You do realize in the US, until they implemented tags and limits that many species of large mammals and ducks were nearly driven to extinction right? Calculated hunting and preservation is a thing you know?
So you're saying before modernity, we hunted with such ferocity that animals were almost driven to extinction? But I thought the whole point in hunting was to prevent animals from dying?
Annnnd, finally, if you're out hunting look down, you can always bring some of these bad boys home!
Every time I see one of these "post pictures of your ____ " threads I think it's just to make doxxing us easier. Or to make a compelling link between facebook accounts and 4chan ip's for the day all these archives are gone though with retroactive "hate speech" legislation.
So no, but that is a nice deer. Shot looks just a bit high did it fuck up any backstrap?
OK so a funny story: A sea lion decided to squat on the dock right where my crab traps were tied up. So anyway I tried to kind of sidle up and maybe hope he'd run away, but he reared up (i'm still like 50' away) and was like HUUUURRRRRRRRRR NO!
So I walked back, knowing not what to do, and I see some of those crusty old sea dogs that live on their fishing boats. I intruded upon their conversation of ARRRRRRs and asked, what do you guys do if a sea lion is squatting on your line?
So the one old guy's like, let me lend you my dog. He goes back to his boat and gets this bag of bones, grey-haired ancient beagle, and says to it, listen to this kid!
So he sets it down and it sniffs my hand and licked it, and I gave him a good ear rubbing, and the old guy's like, just go out there.
Well I did, and as soon as the old dog (clearly half blind with cataracts) finally sees the sea lion and RUNS FULL BORE at the thing.
A 12 pound ancient beagle vs a 1200 pound sea lion. That lion just fucking got the shit out of there, because the dog was flying at it like a bat out of hell.
I bought the dude a 24 pack of beer and the dog a big ass thing of milk bones.
