I often wonder if we are raising a nation of shallow and unskilled hunters. With all the technology and hunting toys now days it just doesn't seem the same to me, compared to the days of just walking out in the woods with weapon in hand and hunting. To be one with the woods and wildlife is a special thing, and I would hate to see it all change because of the modern ways of man. 99.9 percent of the time when I hunt, I just walk out into the woods and find an advantage point and sit down and enjoy the peace and quiet of the woods. I also like to stalk around too, it works great. My success rate is good, so I know it still works, but how many people can still pull this kind of hunt off. Have we forgotten the ways of our fore fathers? Has the commercial ways of man dampened our eyes and mind of what we did in our youth? I wont list anything, but just look at all of the stuff that we are offered now days just for a simple hunt, and could we survive without it, if it was no longer available. I also wonder will a line be drawn. Our furry and feathered friends in the woods deserve a little real don't they? Lets not loose the contest and challenge between man and animal so much that we cant appreciate them anymore. What are your thoughts? peep

You are a shallow and unskilled hunter. I can't believe you hunt with a modern weapon! Real skilled hunters go into the woods with nothing and fashion a bow and arrows out of what they find on the ground.

Why a bow? Do you lack the skills to stalk them, or just scared to get close enough with a sharp stick?........

I dig a hole and lay in it covered in leaves until the animal walks by. Then I grab it and strangle it for the kill.

cheers good topic. Can see were high-tech has its advantages. First deer rifle was a .45Kentucky & still enjoy hunting with it. Nothing wrong with using modern weapons to make a humain kill. Cave man days, started hog hunting at night with slinger pistal & flashlight turned off & easing twards hogs. While it was fun & exciting, don't recomend it. U seen video's in the hog hunt section? so ya wanna hunt wild pigs do ya? 2cents Richmanvspoorman hunts better annalasiss. i have cheap posts flag

I hear ya, I do like a good rifle. I just hope we don't get so far past the point of no return that it might make hunting in the future a lot less enjoyable. Hey what's wrong with keeping it simple. Laff while you can folks my walls are so full of deer and deer antlers that I've got them laying on the floors and piled up on shelves.

This is more of "the way I do it is right and everybody else doing it differently is wrong" sort of logic. Funny how "simple" stops with what you think is appropriate. The fun quotient ain't declining with technology. You have already testified to that.

Just because someone likes it a certain way, doesn't mean that everyone else that does it different is wrong.

For the most part, I agree and will still spot and stalk. One of my favorite ways to hunt. I still go out and pick a ridge or pinch point and sit for hours. I have walked miles upon miles to try to find deer or glass ravines. I spend a lot of my time in a tree with a bow.

But I still enjoy a comfy blind and a corn feeder. Enjoy looking through some good binoculars, using a range finder, and checking cameras has become one of my favorite outdoor activities. I spend a lot of time behind a camera and I my greatest passion is picking a specific deer and spending a season trying to kill that deer. Many times, I have watched a particular deer for 3-5 years and it makes the hunt that much more special. All the "technology" has increased my chances but does not guarantee success. I go years without killing a trophy buck. It does however provide me the chance to pick a buck, have a history of certain deer and learn more about their overall behavior.

Obviously you don't need or want that technology, as evident by your claim of trophies lining your walls. Congrats to you sir and no one is telling you that you should use it and to "catch up with the times." For me, that is the greatest part of hunting...no one does it the same, but we all have the right to do what we want.

It is not about how you or the next guy hunts. I really don't care about what or how they do it. I was trying to make an example of how I like to hunt and is it a thing of the past. I was not trying to make a joke out of it with a fun quotient, just trying not to make it not seem so serious that people took it the wrong way. Apparently I have answered my question, because when people reply with jokes and not a simple answer, they have answered my question and they did not even realize it, because it seems like they don't even care about the subject. Maybe this is over yall's head and if you can't respond with a mature answer than skip it. You are making a perfect example of what I'm talking about and to you it is all a joke. I feel sorry for the future of hunting, I honestly do.
