      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Women who hunt

They've achieved true equality - they spout all the same bullshit as male hunters. "Respect for the animal". :rolleyes:

That "same as kissing endorphin rush" they refer to is otherwise known as blood lust.

So are you vegan? Or one of the hypocrites they talk about in the article?

My sister in law is an avid hunter.  In fact she probably is more successful than my brother.  She is not a crazy person. Simply she enjoys the outdoors and hunting and fishing has always been part of her lifestyle.  Mrs Rum and I always enjoy the venison we get at the end of the hunting season each year.

I have much more respect for wildlife and the environment since I started hunting than before it. You may not understand it, but it is there and it is real. My wife hunts and is a soft hearted animal lover, she will stop traffic to save a turtle or baby bird in the road. It is simply one of those things that is easy to understand when you are part of it and almost impossible to explain to someone who is not. I think it is healthy for people to understand at a visceral level that a life was taken in order for them to eat that hamburger or steak. When you understand that you become much more conscious about your eating habits, where your food comes from, how the animal was treated before it was killed, and you appreciate it at a different level. There is something fundamentally different about eating meat and eating vegetables that we lose the understanding of when all the meat we consume comes processed and shrink wrapped, we lose touch with the life that was given and lose appreciation for what it takes to sustain those lives and how we should respect them while they still draw breath.

Neither - I simply don't kill things for fun and entertainment.

I've been hunting - made me feel bad and the "food" tasted like shit - the store provides much better for way less $$, time & effort.

Yeah, because food hunters have to get into the animal up to their elbows (literally) and can't deny to themselves what they're eating. Supermarket hunters get into their meat no further than tearing off the plastic wrap and throwing away the styrofoam container.

Hunters who hunt for food or to protect their farmed food, are -- if nothing else -- honest with themselves.

But it occurs to me that the other two extremes are basically the same; hunters who hunt for the fun of shooting animals and let things either bleed out, or take the trophy and leave the rest for the buzzards, are in most ways indistinguishable from those who deny to themselves that the factory-farmed supermarket-packaged mammals that they shovel into their meathole actually live excrutiatingly miserable short lives, living animals shoved into the factory paradigm, squeezed and injected to an inch of human decency.

 

Anyway, I don't see the point of this thread ... is it really newsworthy that there are women hunters in Oz? There are millions of them in the U.S., it's not a novelty, husbands hunt with wives, wives hunt with wives, little girls grow up fishing and hunting with their parents, and hunt with girlfriends when they get older. I read that gender specialization in Native American tribes happened often where conditions required a complex woman's role with medicine, food prep, water and tools, so it wasn't the complexity of the hunt that kept women back in camp, but the complexity of camp that didn't give women the luxury of the hunt.

shit, cougars have been hunting for centuries..     I don't hunt, I just have to many other hobbies and things to spend money on, I do own guns though..  but in the US, there is an overpopulation of forest rats that need to be culled and a bevy of winged rats (mallards) all over, I don't have a problem with that..  I do have a problem of the "big game hunters"  taking out dimishing species  or the game preserves who allow various animals to be shot down ...

I used to hunt quite a lot, never saw anything like her in the woods though. Maybe I should take it up again.

I've met several female Australian hunters, they were all after the same quarry. Lucky for them they were essentially on a tame game preserve, where if they couldn't actually bag one for themselves, they could always get someone to bring them one ready for mounting....

If so, just add it to the long, long list of reasons to despise that family.

No longer. It's now cheaper to subsist on welfare cheese, Little Debbies and Taco Bell. [/sarcasmfont]

Had a little fun with this recently.

We were cleaning some fish in the back of my neighbor's restaurant. One of his waitresses commented that she liked to eat meat but only if it came out of a plastic wrapper. "I couldn't look at the eyes and cut off the flesh like you're doing."

My response:

"I'm not cutting off her flesh yet. I'm ripping out her eggs."

Apparently, that wasn't any better for some reason.

I don't care. Fish roe is one of my favorite things. They don't sell it at stores. That's how I get it.

My sushi guy makes roe rolls, basically just some seaweed jammed and piled high with a small handful of bright orange roe, eaten in one bite, a mouth explosion of a thousand fish eggs. Outstanding.

Especially how they get into all the little nooks and crannies in your teeth and pop back out one by one over the next few hours. It's a good reminder of a (hopefully) good meal.

I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.

I took out my wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked,"If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"

"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.

"Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?" I asked.

"No, I don't waste time fishing," the homeless man said.."I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."

"Will you spend this on hunting equipment?" I asked.

"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't gone hunting in 20 years!"

"Well," I said, "I'm not going to give you money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."

The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? 

I replied, "Don't worry about that. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking, fishing and hunting."
