I used to hunt a ton as a kid, but not so much anymore. My dad got a 12 point yesterday. He is one happy man.

I am discouraged from going out by the fact that I have to pay $40 fricking dollars to get a license.

Serious question about deer hunting, which I hope is not taken the wrong way...:

Is there any serious skill to hunting deer? I don't get why people are exciting about shooting a deer. I play baseball every Friday at this park near my house. Every time, right around sunset, there are deer that walk right through our outfield. The center fielder could probably tackle a deer and kill it with his bare hands. For this reason, I don't get why people are so excited about killing a big deer. Can anyone enlighten me?

Archery yes. Rifle, sort of. Deer know where to go and when to go. Once they hear one or 2 gunshots, they bed down in thicket. This makes rifle hunting much more difficult. I'm not going to call it "skill" but more willingness. You have to drive deer out in rifle season. It's not as easy as just sitting against a tree and dropping a deer from 250 yards. When you do jump them up, they are often moving at a fast pace. You have to react quickly and be a good shot.

Archery is totally different. Archery takes skill. You are often 25 feet in the air, and have to have the ability to call the deer within 40 yards of you, draw the bow back (which has hundreds of pounds of pressure on it), aim, account for drop, windspeed, and deer movement, all while hanging 25 feet in the air strapped to a 10 pound piece of steel in a tree. Not to mention, you've been sitting up there for 6 hours.

IB4 someone makes fun of me for rationalizing killing an animal.

Yeah, its pretty outrageous. I got my license the other day, and with the trout / Erie combo stamp, it was $38.50

Should be a pretty decent day for fishing tomorrow weather-wise.

I have so much stuff to get done tomorrow I probably won't go out. I have 2 quads that need repair to bar-hop tomorrow night and a bunch of lawnwork to do. I'll go bass-fishing at some point in the summer.

Has anyone ever gone steelhead fishing? Worth shelling out the cash for a noodle rod?

Legit point. But why do I need a license to fish in my buddy's private pond?

and dont question my beer drinking habits.

If you're on private property and have permission you don't need a license.

There are some gobblers near my house in Ross that I’d love for you to shoot. Unfortunately, the minimum “distance to a house” requirements for hunting mean that those noisy buggers are pretty much safe to keep gobbling away at 5:30 a.m.
