    Hello, just curious?? not hijacking, what would be the need to carry during bow hunting? thanks
    K-Ridge

    same reason people wanna carry everywhere. Paranoia.

    Did yo, u ever think about the possibility of using a handgun to put down a potentialy wounded deer to end its suffering as quickly as possible? Sometimes wounded deer happen and shooting them with a bow on the ground or cutting their throats isn’t always quick. Not everyone that carries is a paranoid gun freak like you think we are.

    Well, that, my friend is illegal.. If it wasn’t illegal, people would shoot a deer with their pistol, then stick an arrow in it. The DNR have heard that story a million times. Try another argument…………

    The question wasn’t legality, the question was why would someone want to carry while bowhunting. Your answer was paranoia, I provided a non-paranoid reason as to why someone would want to carry. Not much of an argument there.

    A non-legal answer to a question is illegal. Paranoia can be the only answer. Let’s not mince words. It is illegal to carry a hand gun while bowhunting deer in Iowa. If you can’t grasp that, then, you have trouble with reality.

    We use Mojo’s all the time. Do we get a shot at every duck that flys over the spread? No. But, there is no doubt in my mind that they do alot more good than harm. They attract birds, and bring them in close, for high percentage kill shots. To me, that is the definition of sucessful and ethical waterfowl hunting, bringing the birds close enough for clean kills and minimal or no cripples. Frankly, I don’t know why anyone would hunt without them. But, to each his own.

    I bought a Leica 1000 yd. rangefinder about 8 years ago. I wouldnt’ trade it for anything. They make good optics. Period.

    If you live or hunt in south dakota you will brag to all of the poor saps who never leave iowa. 😉

    Word…

    😆

    This is a perfect example of Photoshop. No one really shot these geese, they were killed by Rooster Pheasants, who will also kill hens, when scavenging for food. Heinrix stumbled upon the pile of geese, took them from a colony of 10,000 rooster pheasants that live behind Stitch’s house, then photoshopped in him and his buddies.

    # (whatever number we are on ) Hunting of Pheasants has absolutely, positively, undoubtedly, NO EFFECT on the pheasant population, even if you kill the last rooster in the state, all the hens in the state will hatch chicks by way of Immaculate Conception.

    In fact, it would be better if the daily bird limit was raised to 12 , instead of lowered to 1 or 2, or closed altogether in some counties.

    To Reiterate, Hunting has NO impact on Pheasant Population, No Matter What.

    It took me a long time to learn this one.

    If you are going to use it for shotgun season, don’t forget that you need a 12 inch X 12 inch blaze orange area visible from all directions.

    Seems like maybe I need to reiterate. There have been hundreds of thousands of acres SEEDED this fall. Habitat and feed will NOT be an issue this winter in those areas. I participated in the operation. One aerial applicator alone has done between 5 and 10 thousand acres.

    What kind of seed was planted ? Where was this done ? Who paid for it ?

    You can wait as long as you want after replacing the gasket, to start your first fire. Actually the longer the better, but do follow their directions by only lighting a small fire the first time or two, to complete the curing of the gasket cement, or you will risk cracking it and having it fall out.

    I haven’t fired my stove up yet, but it’s almost time, and I cant wait. I have heated primarily with wood for 18 years, and I have a barn full of oak that has been seasoning for two years for this burning season.

    Hot link

    Since every pheasant in the state does hang out in the ditch next to the road……………….. 🙄

    These surveys more or less mean nothing.

    This statement points out your ignorance regarding the accuracy of the survey. Here is a link to the full report. Go to Page 9,Statewide Pheasant Trends, and you will see that the Roadside Survey Count,compared to the Harvest numbers for every season since 1962. The road side count numbers increase and decrease almost exactly mirrors the harvest numbers.
