onehorse, I like your thinking! Animals are a gift to all, hunting is a privilege never take it for granted, treat them both very well and we'll all be able to enjoy them both for a long time! Let us all look in the mirror each and everyday a be able to say we hunted fairly, we hunted by the law, we respect the animals that we take, and try our best to pass along to others the knowledge of nature/hunting that only time spent in the great outdoors allows us to learn. Pass it along to kids as todays youth are too busy to spend time learning things we take for granted every time we step into the woods. Ok I'm done, great test onehorse I hope most see it your way!

Hunting Man, thanks for your reply. It's guys like you, as well as others on this site, who are restoring my faith in the future of American wildlife and hunting. I've run across so many so-called hunters out there who just don't get it, that sometimes I even wonder whether I want to continue participating in this sport... and this after more than 50 years of hunting! Thanks for keeping me hunting.

onehorse, my hope is that years in the field is not THE criteria that leads one to wisdom, however, it seems that it is the leading one. While you have me as my senior by just a couple of seasons, you would fit just fine in my camp! Hunting Man

Hunting Man, have you read the book Beyond Fair Chase by Jim Posewitz? I keep recommending it to every hunter I meet - have even bought quite a few and given them away. It's sort of the bible on hunter ethics. Some of your statements remind me of the ideas experessed in that book. Just wondering.

onehorse I haven't read that book. In fact sadly, I really don't read much as I try to stay busy doing stuff that needs done. My two young labs keep me pretty busy also. I work a 12 hr rotating swing shift so days off are a premium. I know someday reading will be a part of my slow evenings and I hope to catch up on many of the great authors. Have a good one!

One horse, thought you'd might like to hear about the PA camp I belong to. It sets on top of a mountain, close to a nice stream. We built a two story camp all propane, no electric, no TV, no phone. We have a nice spring house for water supply in front of camp and we have a steam sauna out back to relax in. The camp sets down in a hollow surrounded by rock ledges and hemlock trees. The camp's name is the Hemlock Hollow Camp go figure. I also hunt with a good friend in the UP of Michigan with nearly the same set-up. I have been most lucky to have hooked up with good friends who enjoyed hunting. I was able to hunt with my dad, and brother, and now my son. Not much in life is better than that. My dad no longer hunts and I lost my brother in 2000, my son has turned into a pretty good hunter himself with bow/rifle. Keep in touch I enjoy our conversations.

buckfever, hello I have worked in the same job for 34 years. Its a sulfuric acid refinery. We supply acid for some of the big gas refineries BP,Sun,Marathon in Ohio, Michigan, PA,Indiana. I started in the union and agout 10 years ago moved into management. I've stayed in the operation's side of things. We used to work the famous 7 day swing, days to midnights to afternoons, that was a killer. We now work a 12 hour/14 day/month swing. It is basically a 2/3 on/off schedule a long weekend twice twice a month. Lots easier than the old shift. How about you?
