I’ve often wondered how city people come to be so smart & such ranching experts. Then I happened across this article, & it explains it all. Excuse my simple copy pasta.


How city people come to know so much.

First, your born & reared in the city. Maybe not downtown Dallas exactly, but some [censored] suburb of D/FW, or Houston / San Antone, where you can’t get off pavement without driving >30 minutes in any direction.

Your schooling consists of Yankee fairy tales, liberal indoctrination, inflated self-worth, & a sense of entitlement. Mom makes you chicken tendies & brings them to the basement for you, life is good.

Then comes college, where you remain in the big city, maybe work some low paying job inside a building, repeating the same simple mundane tasks repeatedly. “Would you like chocolate sprinkles on your 1/2 soy mocha latte with caramel?”, you repeat 87 times a day.

Your professors are all liberals, mostly from California. You believe whatever they tell you, after all they are SuperSmart, just ask them, they’ll tell ya. You take a buncha stupid classes that has nothing to do with your career field, or even current reality. You rack up 10’s or 100’s of thousands of dollars of debt learning underwater basket weaving, gender studies, & how our country is racists +/- we are all [censored].

Then you get graduated, take a job where you have to commute 30 minutes (if traffic is agreeable that day). Later on, you meet some ol gal, who is as spoilt & piss [censored] ignorant as you, although she is tougher & slightly more masculine.

The years go by, you have a few kids who are spoilt brats, your wife gets fat & “acquires” a herd of cats, while knocking back Zinfandel & prescription pills like they are tic tacs. Your kids play soccer.

You take a new job downtown, adding another 20 minutes to your daily commute. You still have to kiss all the bosses asses, but now a coupla younger employees gotta kiss your [censored], so you feel more important. Your desk is really nice, no need to leave it til 4:45pm 5 days a week.

You are also a sportsball fan. Your local city team is filled with players who hate you, our country & our way of life, but you don’t care, you wear the jersey with their name on it & wear it with pride. You enjoy giving money to delusional liberals who hate you.

Your kids now go off to college, one comes back a non-binary, pansexual transgender & the other a
Democrat. Your not sure which one your more proud of.

But now your empty nesters, & you’ve made enough money sitting on your [censored] that you can now afford to buy a little land somewhere. You’ve always been a ranching & hunting expert, albeit without leaving the city for more than a weekend. You start looking for a place where you can visit once a month or 2, to hone your ranching & hunting expertise. Your gonna need to tell all the locals there how y’all do everything in the city, & what they all they are doing wrong.

So you find 9 acres for sale. Your thinkin, “I could set this up for multiple deer hunters, & make enough off their stupid city asses to make payments”. When they’re done shooting up all the deer In the next few years, you’ll be able to pay it off, & move up to 15 acres, & repeat the process all over again. [censored] your neighbors. Your a [censored] genius, & it’s mostly because of your city upbringing.

More truth to this than many may realize. Also a major contributor to the recent surge in high fences going up by landowners that don’t really like high fences.

Pretty good description of them. Just needs a little dash of snobbery mixed in along with a big heap of denial.


City life is no life for a country man; for such a man that life is a kind of damnation in itself.

Could be always be worse, could be graduates of a local farm and ranch program. Fortunately they normally come back to being normal about a decade later after they realize some of the old timers had it figured out.

Man made buildings don't matter to some, it's the land. You obviously will never understand that. Here is a pic of glorious Frisco, I think I can smell the curry from here.....

It always makes me laugh when some kid from a land rich parent inherits the oil and gas royalties and the fact the land financially sustains itself makes them think they know whats best for ranching and farming…

This argument cuts both ways. There are know it alls, and there are people that try to learn how to do the best thing using multiple methods. There are know it all yuppies and know it all ancient ranchers/farmers, and both can be people who don’t know dork or care to understand about what their land uses have done to the land. I want to learn from people who are real stewards of the land, who know they wont he there for ever and the land needs to be sustainable for generations, not just for their lifetime. For the most part, these people are pretty easy to distinguish from know it alls.

Sad is all the survivors of the dust bowl era are long and gone. Those that reclaimed that land through better soil conversation and selective range management had more knowledge then 99.999 percent of all farmers and ranchers today. Not a knock to us, thankfully we just have never had to live through that type of hard times environmentally or economic.

not really, farming is always evolving. None of them do it they way we did in the '80s. Farmers are far smarter today.

To heck with that.

1. Find a good piece of hunting property currently under hunting lease. Sleuth the forums, grab the geolocation in photos, aerial maps, etc.

2. Pay a landman on the side or go find the property owner yourself

3. Offer quite a bit more to lease the property for hunting

4. If it's brown it's down. Invite your friends. Maybe 2 seasons worth if possible?

5. Go to step 1

Machinery technology is evolving. Current Soil conservation, moisture retention and techniques all started with them. We are just more efficient on a grander scale because of their trial and errors.

Perfect example how we screw [censored] up. CRP program is no longer about soil and water conservation but one based on wildlife and point totals with a lessoning focus on water and soil.
