Stop Maryland's season of cruelty: fall bow hunting -

Anticipating autumn's bounty of cooler weather, glorious sunshine and majestic foliage also brings sadness to my heart, knowing the suffering about to be inflicted by Maryland's bow hunters on our deer starting ... Full Story

Two weeks in a row we lose by a field goal, in OT, to a back-up QB!!! What's wrong with this picture??? I can't figure out why they can't show any consistancy, they play great for short spurts then go back to playing halfassed. Go figure.....

Just another AR lunatic who believes that her "fight for the animals" justifies her actions, even including grand theft, trespassing/burglary, and throwing dogs from a speeding vehicle. Sure the dogs she tossed out of the moving car suffered great fear and pain but it was for their own good....right? ROTFLMAO!!!! ARs! What a bunch of bigoted lame brained idiots!!!

Good morning, Squach. I hope you are well.

Austin is in pain and with frequent coughing and choking lately. There is swelling, or some type of growth on his tonsils, but bloodwork does not indicate any bad cells. The vet says Tonsil cancer in dogs is very rare and unlikely.

Last month we thought he had lymphoma, but the huge lump on his throat turned out to be infection of the salivary glands. We don't know what is causing him these problems. He is 12 years old, but we decided to have it biopsied, because otherwise he is in good health.

I'm hoping this is something simple like a wood splinter stuck in his throat that got infected and can be removed.(He used to eat wood in the yard.) I hate putting him under anesthesia at this age, but it's too soon to lose another family member.:(

There's a really nice lake I want to take him to in the spring!

We took a friend (19 years old) up north so she could go hunting on our property over the weekend. I walked with her out to the tree stand. Before she climbed up it, I warned her to always check the tree stands anywhere she hunts to make sure it hasn't been tampered with.

She's still a little young and naive and was shocked when I told her about some of the ARA tactics to stop people from hunting.

Yeah, violent crime against their fellow humans from the crowd that claims to have "compassion" for all living things. That's a pretty smelly crock-o-sh!t, ain't it? Hope your friend had a good time hunting and learned a few things for future hunts.

She had a great time. She was also introduced to the world of birds. She had chickadees feeding from her hand, saw her first giant Pileated Woodpecker carving out a fallen tree, and rare (for this area) Pine Grosbeaks down from the far north. Her time in the tree stand I'm sure will be much more rewarding knowing some of the birds that come to check her out in the future.

Sample from his tonsil is being sent out for analysis.
Films of his lungs are being sent to a specialist.
Spleen is enlarged.
He is loaded with “something.”
Whatever it is, it is not good.:(

We've had a bear break in twice this year. Food sources were down and the bear population is high. This makes conditions ripe for bear invasions.
The damage to our place was in the thousands from the first break in....we weren't home.
The 2nd time I actually pulled a gun on the bear that was in our dining room/kitchen. The Kimber night sights worked great but I could not see the bear. To turn the lights on would have required me to move within about 10' of the bear INSIDE the house. I finally scared it off. Not a pretty situation.
The DOW set a trap but the bear simply moved to another location.
Now i've replaced most of the damaged window/door/cabinets and such.
I've also purchased a much better weapon so that should another break in happen I won't need to find the light switch. I have a new flashlight/laser combo and a very high power weapon for future encounters.
The beavers and bears are costing a fortune.
I consider the inside of my home to be MY territory. I don't think folks in urban areas would put up with this for long.
The bear broke into your home? The bear was there first, idiot. You moved into HIS home ! Use logic.

You could choose to live many places but you chose his home. Maybe you should go live on a yacht.

Smokey, are you indicating you didn’t displace or kill some animals when your double wide trailer was put in place at the trailer park? Living in your glass double wide trailer must be so cool.

Hi Squach,

I really would like to know the proven stats of hunters that have been injured or killed from falling from tampered tree stands.

Spesking of claims, that's what I don't get, never will get...that hunters have compassion for all living things. For instance learning to enjoy birds, as this 19 year woman you are talking about as she is learning to kill other living things.

I took my daughter to a sporting goods store to buy some pepper spray. Surprisingly I am on friendly terms with the owner even though he is an avid hunter. So while we were waiting for him, my daughter wandered around looking at the mounts on the wall, and the pictures of hunters posing with the dead animals they had killed. So my girl came back to me and said, "Mom the more I see, the madder I am getting at these people." She didn't like one bit what she saw, especially the pictures. So we left. Plain spoken words from someone who really does respect ALL living things.

Happy 2013 to you if I don't talk to you sooner.

We ALL live where animals used to live. We have a right to defend our homes and families, while also having the responsibility to conserve as much as possible.

The young lady I am speaking of genuinely loves animals as much as I do. Her heart melted when she saw the growth progression photos of a newborn baby squirrel another friend of mine raised several years ago. She was thrilled when the chickadees landed on her outstretched hand for seed.

She was raised in a family that hunts. Her goal is to take a buck- of any age or size (rack is unimportant to her) because she wants to fill her family's freezer with meat.

They are not a wealthy family, but they are very close. I find it admirable that in todays world of young people into drugs, drinking and sex, this young lady is looking to help out her parents with living expenses by providing meals for the winter for the whole family. She is more interested in being in the outdoors, going to church and working and going to college, than in finding a boyfriend!

For her age, she is very mature, caring and family-oriented. She ordinarily would not hurt anything, but she eats meat and wants to learn how to procure her own rather than relying on some unknown farmer to kill something that's been confined, possibly treated inhumanely, drug injected with who knows what, and then rely on a butcher and grocery store to get it to her safely.

Learning to procure ones own food from start to finish is a great lesson for a young girl to learn, IMO- for what it's worth.

Likewise, your daughter also seems to developing into someone of her own morals and values. Neither view, or lifestyle, is wrong. They are just different. When I was younger, I would have been side by side with your daughter. I have changed since then. But I do understand why your daughter feels the way she does about this issue. It's not easy to come to terms with the sudden death of something so beautiful. That's why I am so steadfast in my belief that killing should only be for a good reason, such as for food or self-defense.

I hope your daughter doesn't dwell on this stuff and let it bother her as much as it did me when I was her age. I spent many sleepless nights worrying about something I could never change.

I don't know if there any statistics on sabatoge injuries, but I found these blogs of hunters that had sabatage happen to them. Whether it is truthful or not remains to be seen.

Then there is this article:

I wish the following site had a counter. It would be interesting to see how many people are looking for this kind of information. Though it is more about disabling a tree stand, rather than sabatoging it to cause injury or death.

CORRECTION:

We ALL live where animals live.

I did a personal log/photo essay once on the wildlife in (not around, but IN) Louisville, KY. Most residents of Loiusville that I met, had no idea that those critters were living right under their very noses and in their own back yards. I had the pleasure of witnessing a hawk (no, I do not know what species of hawk) take out a cottontail rabbit right out in front of a large apartment complex. The residents I spoke to and to whom I pointed out the attack, knew there were birds flying around, but had no idea that the cottontail lived in and around their lawn and shrubbery. They thought it was a squirrel as they see them in the trees, but it was a cottontail rabbit and they were oblivious to it's residency.

For what it is worth, I share your daughter's distaste for those photos. Last season, I had a devil of a time convincing someone to NOT take a picture of me with my harvest, as I do not wish to glorify the death of a relative so that I may live. There is no glory in causing death no matter the animal in question, including the two leggeds.
