Hi sc, glad to see you commenting again. Interesting reading the different views on things. My husband was raised hunting. They had hounds to run and trail. They were poor farmers and everything they killed was used to feed 4 kids. We are retired and his meds are around 600.00 a month and we eat every bite and give to others that love deer but donât hunt. He has it processed and we never had to buy ground beef and we had deer steak that he can fix that you would never believe it was deer. He killed a feral hog with a crossbow and had it processed. It was corn fed at the feeders that was for the deer. They are all well fed and he may get one or two out of 30 that eat there. They have cameras to show everything that eats at each feeder. He goes hunting to relax and watch nature and fellowship with his friends at his camp. His 2 sons are hunters as well but still work and canât as often. He is arthritic, has heart problems, lungs not good, gives out of energy easily so he only stays a few days a week. So to answer your question itâs about all of it but every bite
After my stepdad retired from the Army, he bought a farm and raised cattle and as many as 70,000 chickens at a time. Too late I realize what a sporting opportunity I missed by not setting up a blind in the broiler houses and blasting away with my trusty 16-gauge. Dang.
JAG, I donât know how it is where you live, but down here in the DeSoto National Forest (named for an abandoned 1957 DeSoto found there by the Forestry Service), we sometimes have to shut ourselves in for a day or so due to all the smoke from CONTROLLED burns. And despite the fact that I am very sensitive to smoke and easily get bronchitis, I donât mind a bit because I know the purpose of the controlled burns is to prevent UNCONTROLLED burns like they have constantly on the Left Coast. While it is tragic that so many have lost their lives and property, they didnât lose them to the fire as much as they did to stupid liberal policiesâwhich is, I realize, a redundant phrase, as all liberal policies are stupid.
You see that, Christopher? Good thing your face is unrecognizable, and looks more like a 3D waffle with whiskers than an actual face. Otherwise the cops would be heading your way with a bushel of unserved warrants.
Less than one. Susan, if you donât want folks to take a belligerent attitude, maybe you should be a bit more humble yourself, and not act like Moses hurling the tables of the Law. If you had left out the first three paragraphs of your post, maybe the rest of it would have been better received. I am sure you and Erik mean well, but the holier-than-thou approach is a turnoff and can actually close peopleâs minds to the things you have to say. Sorry for my disrespectful attitude. I really will try to behave, although I admit Iâm not very good at it.
Whereâs the âsportâ in killing âdefenseless animalsâ that were raised in captivity, and lived their short doomed lives in confinement, to stock Grocery Store shelves? At least Deer have a sporting chance!
Apparently SC lives in some high rise in the city...
He has probably never been told the real stuff behind deer...
Deer. Probably the meanest critters you can hunt. One reason people hunt in tree stands is because if you don't, then you may as well write your Will before you go. They will charge you and then trample you to death.
They come to lonely country houses and bust the windows in, simply because they like the noise...
They actually kill polar bears for the fun of SC. So they are actually more threatening than the bears...
Excellent comments, Buckeyes. I wouldnât hold my breath waiting for Jim to come around to your scriptural and commonsense way of thinking, though. Apparently his skull goes all the way to the middle.
Jim; Many will say upon that great day of judgement, they will say, Lord, Lord, & He will say to them, depart from me. I never knew you, be nât deceived Jim, your heart reflects deception, Nât Good; Pro 14:12!
Exd 23:2 You shallnât follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice.
These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, Pro 6:16-18
Your worldview view exposes you, that you are in dier need of Christ mercies to be bestowed onto your life, while you are able to repent amen.
Second Peter 2:12 tells us why there are deer in the woods (and in suburban lawns), SC. They were âmade to be taken and destroyed.â Too bad for the libs that God isnât more politically correct, huh?
Dr Tim says... Or liberals refusing to allow wise forestry management?"
Its the bad forest management...
They refuse to let people cut the trees, for the sake of the Spotted Owl. Now the trees are so thick, the little owl can't even fly through the forest (so the owls leave, which make the liberals think it's going extinct). And the thick forest make an excellent petri dish for a fire.
The liberals plans have been back firing for years...
Christian schools can be self-supporting if they set tuition rates at the proper level and conduct fundraisers that do not dishonor God. I know of several that do this, and Iâm sure there are many more.
Good morning, SC...aside from the food aspect, I think deer hunting season is more for population control, which would get out of control otherwise...that's how I understand it. Don't be fooled by their innocent look. Deers know karate, and they run out of the woods at night and punch people walking by in the face, and then kick them before running back into the woods because they think it's funny. Also, the bucks run out and stab tires with their horns while people are driving by, for no good reason, causing accidents. Very dangerous and mischievous animals.
"...Her mother survived against all odds, she was so thankful and gave up her gay life became a Christian and her mother lived many more years. My daughter just moved on but I havenât given up on her."
Wow! The power of prayer. I have no doubt that some, while doing it anyway, find prayer to be a cumbersome chore. I imagine a direct pipeline to God, and I view our prayers as little puzzle pieces that are in constant motion as they serve to create chains of events which bring God's big plan together. We don't always see the results of our prayers which can cause some to take a step back, or pray with less frequency or intensity, etc. The thing is that even though we may not see the results were expecting, those prayers could have set something else in motion, leading to someone else's salvation, healing, the fulfillment of some need, or whatever. Point is to never, ever give up, especially in matters of salvation, because eternity is a long, long time.
Consider Daniel praying and fasting for three full weeks. God heard him the first day he prayed, but the messenger angel had to fight for 21 days to get a message to him. I wonder about the outcome had Daniel stopped praying after a few minutes, or even at the 20day mark, etc.
I am using my iPhone when I comment and itâs hard to work with and the computer is worse so I donât comment often unless itâs something I feel pretty strong about. Just because I disagree with anyone doesnât mean I hate you. Too much of that is whatâs happening in our society today.
Dolores, Did your husband shoot the deer in self-defense or for the fun of it? I always thought that hunting would be more of a "sport" if hunters would actually go after something more threatening like a polar bear or the like. Where is the sport in taking on defenseless animals?
People have come into the church and caused by being belligerent and threatening. We have children every day attending something such as a kindergarten class, after school programs etc After the lesson on James, I was able to see exactly what he meant. I had to leave early that Sunday and had parked my car beside a big black truck and over enough that the driver could get in. I checked to make sure I was still within the line. When I came out I saw another big black truck on the other side of me so close I could not even get to my car door to get in. So as I headed back in not knowing how long I would have to wait. I noticed an elderly man watching me as he walked toward the Church.I told him what happened and was going to try to get help. He said,âI can help you and can you get in on the passenger side.â Not in these high heels, no.â He smiles and takes my keys and hands me his worn Bible to hold and yes, I noticed his faded jeans and well worn shirt not your Sunday go to meeting clothes for sure. I thanked him for being my âGood Samaritan â and again he smiled and I thought what a difference. The expensive truck driven by someone who had no feelings and knew exactly what he was doing and didnât care. I thought later I could have keyed his truck and left a big scratch. Neverth
Wise counsel is rarely given itâs due. The liberal culture of â whatever, dudeâ and the constant barrage of buying on credit is why households ( an oxymoron term), is higher than the national debt. Have sex before your brain can develop, no problem, buy a car with no credit, no problem, rent but never own, no problem, stay unemployed, sell dope cheap, no problem. And thatâs government policy, horrible problems.
Quite honestly, the percentage of giving in churches or to church based schools is less by the fact that church members donât give enough to support their own church, let alone, a church based school.
SA article wrote: .... Professor Bill Galston, President Clintonâs domestic policy advisor and now a senior fellow at Brookings, explained in the early 1990s that an American need only do three things to avoid living in poverty: graduate from high school, marry before having a child, and have that child after age twenty. Only 8 percent of people who do so, he reported, will be poor, while 79 percent who fail to do all three will.
Sociologists have referred to keeping these things in proper order as the âsuccess sequence.â It remains true, according to a new research investigation from the Brookings and the American Enterprise institutes....
