Meateater is hitting me right where it hurts the last couple years. It's hard not taking it personal when it's a canyon generations of your family have hunted, and have your family's ashes scattered in.
I'm so sickened by the hunting 'industry' anymore it's disgusting. I guess that's the flip side of the coin to growing up somewhere great- you have to later watch it get exploited by someone looking to make a dollar.
In keeping with my contribution to the theme that so much is going to hell for keeps, I just finished K. Ross Toole's, "The Rape of Great Plains". My copy being covered in highlighter as almost all my books by that man are. I highlighted this sentence:
"If Montana - which in many essential respects, is a pristine area - cannot control the headlong, unnecessary rush toward devastating exploitation, then perhaps all Americans had better ask the question: Can it ever be stopped anywhere?"
Our family canyons and gulches are still just that. The chunks of country, and what constitutes family one would like to share them with - are scalable. Both, for me, ever-shrinking.
I feel like it's also the international authority on quality cheesesThis forum is a one stop shop for all of life’s essentials. Bumper stickers, book reviews, banal jesting, and the best recommendations for fried chicken and chicken fried steak. With the occasional midget stripper reference thrown in for good measure.
And ice cream pictures.
We have a local fishing guide on the Mississippi River who posts videos at least a few times a week on social media. I have also seen him complain about pressure in his spots!Haven't had anyone come into my spots but learned how and where to hunt bears from a youtube channel on the Oregon coast. I know I am within probably 10 miles of them due to the area but the bears are there so I am happy, and it's unpressured! Also when people show GPS coordinates on a fish finder in a video I don't know what they expect, caught quite a few fish off one of those spots
