Well stated turtle.
Huntingman me intolerant that's laughable. You were the one that asked the question and when you didn't like my answer basically said I'm wrong. You drew that 42 years hunting like it was some sort of pistol. I can't give a lecture but you can, that sounds fair doesn't it? I feel you are treating me like I haven't thought these issues through and reached my own conclusions. I personally think I could learn something from anybody regardless of age or regardless of subject. Hunting for a long time doesn't make you or me right. You seem to be one of the least progressive thinking people I've heard from but I could be wrong. If you bow hunt are you using a compound or a long bow or still throwing rocks to get game. Are you still out there catching fish by hand or are you using modern technology? Motors, trolling motors, all the gadgets? Tech is always progressing which is all that these gadgets are, modern tech. No one says you have to use them or even like them but to assume someone who does use them is less of a hunter than you is just wrong. I'll bet 40 years ago the was some old guy that thought he knew it all and refused to use a compound bow. "Them new finagled bows are just unfair. All them cables and wires and such. I got to go sharpen my new steel broad heads." To be honest with you I'm having a hard time trying to keep track of the things you don't like and are against. Food plots, baiting, fair chase, gadgets, crossbows, compounds, long, recurve, flint lock, percussion caps, sidelock, inline, smokeless, high power, all have been improved over the years. I not peeved, we just have a different way of thinking about things. On the plus side many angles of these issues are being seen. Somewhere on here someone used a signature. If you continue to do the same thing expecting a different out come that's a sign of insanity. That's paraphrasing Einstein, I think. And I'm not saying your are insane. Its just a way to think about things.
