Cod, does this include the guy who did not include a trailer with your boat purchase?


Obviously Canadian women are different to British ones - most of the females I know wouldn't do anything that would mess up their hair or their nails!!! Maybe that's a good thing - especially considering the bitches I know....
You know Cod, to us "YANKS" those British lasses are quite sexy, cute accent, usually well mannered... if they are bitches they probably don't get out on the water enough, my friend Carol (Brit expat) is splendid company, as nice a lady as you'll meet. She does love the water and the boat though!

Of course I'm baiting you....so what criteria do you use to determine whether it's acceptable to hunt a species? Do you support hunting for "sport" ?

..and to be fair.. I think it a “Prairie Tuber” that started the debate again….
In the United States fees collected on licensing from fishing and hunting go in large part towards supporting animal and fish populations, as well as preservation of environment, (building artificial reefs, preserving land) for the same, when I was growing up in Ohio I never saw a single deer until I was fourteen years old, now I have four or five of them in my back yard almost every night. Wild turkeys are now frequently seen in surburbia around here, this is in large part due to hunters and fisherman, who support the species...

P.S. Please let it be known that I tend to be a smartass yank quite often, so take me with a litte humor.
You don't need to apologize for any hunting trip Jimmy, especially as you are sitting at your computer in the U.S.A. It's O.K. to hunt in our "neck of the woods". I hunt hardly at all anymore, but I have spent and will in the future spend many a hour in the woods with a gun, and will continue to do so, a fine activity if ever there was one... many times I never fired a shot, sometimes I did, if they haven't done it they won't understand...

Ah bollix.... life's too short... not as short as the Bear that's about to get the good news from a broadhead, obviously.... but too short to argue when there is no possibility of either of changing our standpoints.... I think, for the sake of other board uses..we must agree to disagree….

Jono, I think you "screwed the pooch" on this one. There is a need to understand the subject you are being critical about before you pass an opinion. I am a hunter and along with millions of others probably contribute 10 times as much to wildlife conservation than you do ( for your major sport) to the RNLI etc. through hunting/fishing licenses, permits etc. As it happens: I also object to bow hunting as it is not an efficient or humane method of hunting game. ( sorry PT, you need to get be realistic). A 300 WM, or 375 H&H does a better job on large dangerous game and it is your responsibility to do the best job you can.
Just my humble opinion. Thanks for the reminder; I will go dig a nice plump pheasant out of the freezer. Eat what you shoot!!!!

Sprinter van bumpers are just the right height to break a pheasant's neck without damaging the rest of the bird.
