hunting is a challenge on so many different levels. be careful out there folks.

ANTLERS, Okla. (AP) _ An Idaho man has been arrested on a manslaughter complaint in the shooting death of a friend while deer hunting in southeastern Oklahoma, authorities said.

Willis Dale Jordan, 71, of Castle Ford, Idaho, is accused of shooting Tryon Lee Thain, 53, of Wright City as they were hunting together Wednesday near Antlers.

Jordan told authorities he was shooting at movement in the brush, said Jessica Brown, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

The shot ``hit his friend in the head, killing him instantly,'' Brown said.

Jordan was released from the Pushmataha County jail on his own recognizance and is to return to the district attorney's office Monday to discuss the incident, according to a sheriff's deputy.

Hard to believe that one can "accidentally" shoot someone in the head!

One of my very distant ancestors came up missing from a deer hunt in Oregon in the early 1900's. His skelton was found 17 years later with a small hole in the back of the skull and with the front of the skull missing. No one was ever charged although there had been hard feelings between him and a hunting companion.

ANY ****ing moron that would shoot at "movement in the brush" should be horsewhipped, have all his guns taken away, be banned from gun ownership for life, banned from hunting for life, and wear a brand on his forehead that says "I am an Idiot"!

And it happens every single year.

Michigan's tag is a sticker you have to stick on a plastic card, the size of a credit card. Card comes pre punched, and it is very easy to attach with a 6" plastic zip tie. That's what I use - doesn't come off easily in transit.

I carry surgical needle and suture...All set for attaching tags, closing the gut after evisceration to keep leaves and dirt out during drag, or sewing up the occasional bad cut in two-legged critters...

A man's hunting articles are sometimes mysterious and awe inspiring. I used to ask..."what's this for...what's that for?"

When I found a brand new box of Tampax in Jake's hunting bag, I quit asking. I know what they're for, do any of you other women know?

Fawteen    Posted 11-28-2004 at 07:41:34       [Reply]  [No Email]
Not a clue. And I'm fairly sure I don't want to know...

Aww come on Fawteen, it's easy. I actually figured this one out on my own.

All right, I'll spill.

The tampons are saturated with doe estrus and then hung in a tree branch. They're perfect for the job, as they come complete with a little string ready for hanging. The breeze whistles through the tree and catches the scent taking it down wind to bucks and then brings them right where they need to be. Ingenious huh?

Fawteen    Posted 11-28-2004 at 08:10:33       [Reply]  [No Email]

And just who collects the doe scent? ":^)

Fred will actually buy them himself. At 7-11 at midnight in full camo, with a complete explanation ready at his lips.

Cindi    Posted 11-28-2004 at 08:33:42       [Reply]  [No Email] comes in a bottle. So my guess would be some poor unfortunate guy at a deer farm somewhere. Wouldn't that be fun.
