  Tridicale and red clover
Posted by: Hunt for food - 5 hours ago - Forum: Deer Hunting - No Replies

I was informed today that the farmer who is letting me hunt is going to replant his hay field in the next week or so in red clover and tridicale and was wondering if anyone has ever hunted around any tridicale it's a hybrid cross of wheat and rye

  Virginia quota hunt system ?
Posted by: lewdog - 6 hours ago - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

I have had discussions on this on a lot of forums but not here . I dislike the system b/c it's forces hunters to play a NY numbers game to start with , sending $7.50 for each set of numbers . That money goes out of the state knowing not a dime of it will be coming back to the state of Virginia or DGIF or worst yet to the WMAS that is in great need for money to be spent in them to repair and or replace the resources the hunts take from them . Then there are the federal swan permits that are given to the 5 states on this coast that DGIF forces us to gamble for a chance to get one . I myself will not put in for any of the hunts or for a swant permit for it would be wrong to complain of the system and roll the dice at the same time .
I would like to hear how y'all feel about the system so please post it up here .

  Research into fish depression?
Posted by: Carcass - 6 hours ago - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

According to this article, researchers have concluded that fish can become depressed. They hope that their research into fish depression treatment may lead to more effective anti-depressant treatment for humans.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/16/scien...-fish.html

if you read the fine print, they purposefully depressed the fish by getting them drunk in ethanol for two weeks and then removing the ethanol suddenly. perhaps, the fish weren't depressed but rather just hung over.

First bear taken with a compound bow! Not very big but an awesome experience.

  What happened to making good shots?
Posted by: Thummy - 10-15-2017, 04:31 PM - Forum: Deer Hunting - Replies (11)

What has happened to waiting for a good shot?

I have seen so many pictures on FB groups lately of people bragging about how big the hole in their deer was. So many of them are terrible shots. Just saw some clown that shot a deer in the throat. He claims he had to thread the needle through some thick stuff and it saw him and was facing him. What happened to just waiting

So many people forcing shots. Hitting deer in all kinds of terrible spots.

One of the more common themes is they are Rage shooters. So are they just inexperienced clowns that see all the commercials or what?

I have had deer walk off without a shot because I didn't have a broadside shot or even a slight quartering shot. It happens. I just see too many people that seem to force shots. It is archery hunting and mistakes happen but seems too many taking terrible shots instead of waiting

Has anyone hit the stocked trout waters yet?

I hear people with nothing better to do in their lives stalk the hatcheries and follow the trucks across Virginia with their tackle!
