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

Why do you ask questions and then try to answer for me?
If the meat isn't eaten it is waste and I do NOT support that. If someone is going to shoot an animal they should be consuming the meat or it better be a case of self defense.
If I had to give the bear 3 squares on my dime he'd think I was acting on behalf of the government and he'd be dependent on someone else taking care of him.:)
The bear has not returned. He moved on to homes with better food! Apparently he went over to the other side of the mountain.
Good for the bear. He can now prosper on his own since he won't be given free meals. He'll find if he works hard and saves, he can provide a good life for himself and his family.:)

There is a grouse that keeps evading me (and my camera) on weekends when I go up to the cabin. It flies out from the same area every time I step outside. Any ideas how can I get close, or have him get close to me, without spooking him?

Nope. I wonder if they're related to Tasty Timmy Treadwell.

Poor kid, that favorite teddy bear will never seem quite the same.

"They told us not to stop". DUH! I guess they should have also told them that auto glass is not bear proof and neither are car doors.

Maybe next time they'll make the ride with pork chops tied around their necks.

At least both the humans (not the best specimens) and the bears (having learned that humans usually have food) survived..........this time.

It seems the three year olds' instincts kicked in that said "Danger." The parents must have learned that bears won't hurt people from some Disney movie.

Good luck catching a grouse on camera. They hide well and usually flush quite fast. The ones at our Wyo. home seem to be a little less "flushy".

Ah yes, probably a Blue Grouse like the one on my profile page that I captured in Yellowstone.

I don't know which one I have here. I flushed a black bird that flashed white on the wings one day around Thanksgiving. The next day, I had a black grouse-like bird fly over the road. Same individual? I don't know.

I haven't been able to see the one I've been flushing recently because of the trees. It's either Ruffed or a Spruce Grouse. Fingers crossed for Spruce!

Hopefully, there will be snow on the ground this weekend. Snow might make it easier to spot from the window.

BTW, What should I do with all the RAW files filling up my memory? At 25mb per picture, it's loading up fast! Do you keep them?

I keep every file. I back them up to 2 external hard drives and then burn a copy to dvd. I'm considering internet storage also.

They do burn up space. But my 3tb hd has plenty of room. I'm getting well over 30Mb per shot by shooting raw+jpg.

Yes, blue grouse.

As I sit here in my tree stand w/my bow in late Jan. killing time hoping for my last kill of the season! I read your comment & wondered if you feel the same when you see all of the road killed deer & think about the thousands of dollars they cost drivers every year? There is nothing wrong w/the time honored tradition of hunting & enjoying the bounty of the harvest. Speaking as an ethical conscientious hunter I will say this, nothing beats a grilled deer steak ! Peace of the LORD be with you .

Smokey, are you indicating you didnít 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.
Hey Bigot, a little FYI about the "trailer park" residents you are attempting to disparage. Out here in sunny, wonderful weather, San Diego, most trailer parks are designated for senior citizens. That is very common for those homes in nearby vicinity of the beach. It would still set you back, Bigot, a cool $300k. I might have bought one, but I'm not a senior.

Yeah? Don't the animals have a right to defend their home? After all, we moved into their homes.

And conservation isn't a responsibility undertaken by most. Not in the least.

Your "logic" has a flaw.
There is only one logical conclusion to draw when it comes to who moved into whose neighborhood first. We humans share this globe with our relatives in our animal kingdom, and we all live here, so there is no such thing as to who moved in first.
I am willing to wager that where you live right now, bears used to roam and hunt long before you moved into that area.
It is impossible to turn back the clock, so efforts to "restore" this world to a prior time is an exercise in futility.
I can't turn back the clock. Duh. But clue, if I buy a home on a cliff, overlooking the ocean, and my home slides into the ocean, certainly I bore some responsibility, right? If you choose to live in the woods, then whine about how horrible your wild neighbors are - then you are a pathetic loser.

Accept personal responsibility in your own choices. Instead, you hunters kill anything that gets in your way.

When a 14 year old boy or girl has no idea of where their meat comes from, and how the animal that provided it lived, I would say that is more of a sheltered issue than one of purity. There are plenty of kids in that arena. I suspect/believe your daughter is not, and is fairly well versed. Once they get the education, they THEN get to decide what's right and wrong for themselves.
When "'my thoughts' are purer than your's, so your actions must match mine", I have a problem.
I'm all about having laws that we all live under and when we don't like them we change them.
Regulated, legalized hunting is how we decide who gets to hunt what where and when.
Show me another way, short of shutting down hunting for all, and I'll all ears. Maybe your daughter has some thoughts?
Ever consider that these kids that you disparage are kept in the dark by the mega companies that infiltrate their lives, relentlessly. Sadly, money is often the greatest influence of laws and regulations. So mega companies, lobbyists, protect their special interests and many youth are, as what you refer to, as "sheltered". No, they simply lack adequate representation! Kids have more to deal with today then you or I ever had to deal with.

ROTFLMAO!!!
Bigot. Vegans, vegetarians, animal rights activists, anti- hunting folks, etc, represent a great portion of society.

Ever consider that some people will never understand how you could take the life of an animal? To many, that is sick.

Best thing anyone can do to help animals is stop eating them.

I don't have an issue with killing predator if the meat is eaten. I've killed and eaten bear. I liked it and would eat bear again....especially the one that keeps breaking in our home.
As much as I like taking photos its not a big deal to me concerning photos if animals i've killed. In fact, i've not taken photos of many of the animals I killed. After I shoot an animal i'm more interested in getting the animal ready to be moved and butchered.
You were young once :)
I wish that bear good luck - Especially having a bear killer as a neighbor. That would suck. I liken that to a family living near a predator. But I have a database I can search. Poor fuzzy wuzzy bear has no such database.

Who kills your animals for you before they reach your mouth in the form of meat?
You do eat meat, don't you?
Maybe not, more likely.

You need to get out more. You assume everyone eats flesh. Sad. What would you serve for dinner if you were having some vegetarian as dinner guests, bigot? Lemme guess: lettuce! So intelligent...

Wow. How stupid. My home has been here for many decades. But using your logic, are you responsible to the descendants of the slaves your ancestors once "owned".

If I surf or dive in the ocean, get attacked by a shark, its not the sharks fault. If you live out in Timbuktu and a bear breaks in to your digs, it's not the bears fault. But you killing ears, beavers,coyotes, etc., you make it their fault.

You live in their home !

The point is that where EVERYONE lives was once the home of someone or something else. Using your "logic" we should spend the next two or three centuries sorting it all out and giving it all back to the "original" owners. Just a little example for ya; what happened to the plethora of critters who lived in the area beside the stream before the beavers dammed up the stream and flooded that area? What became of their homes? It happens all day long, every day whether man is involved or not. Once again you attempt to separate humans from the natural order. It's just one of the many basic flaws in your philosophy.
