Hunting season is upon us

It's almost time for the biggest deer-hunting season in PA. There are several deer seasons here, but this is the big one. You can shoot both antlered and unantlered deer starting this coming Monday.

It ain't safe to be in the woods! So don't go hiking. Half, or probably more, of those guys who are out there in hunting camps armed with guns, are just there for the booze. So. They are drunk and armed.

This is a guy who lost his license for drunk driving, but he's still got a gun and he's still drunk. Be warned.



Just sayin'.

Hope Dick Cheney isn't out there, too!

Doug said...

Right, Icy. It occurs to me Willie is unantlered and so am I. Lawyers have horns.

In California the big deer season is in September. My hunting safety song from years past:

Oh, I'm a four-point buck, tra-la
I weigh four hundred pounds, tra-la
I reckon I can't be hit, tra-la
So, redneck, eat my sh*t, tra-la

That probably isn't road kill from a bicycle.

Most hunters don't eat the meat they shoot or use any part of the animal except it's head. It would be nice if they at least donated the meat to someone who would eat it.

My husband has given up hunting. He doesn't need an excuse to drink; D

Merry Belated Turkey Holiday. Come see my gobbler.

Dan said...

Oh crap! And I was going to go hiking in NJ Sunday. Maybe I should make sure my will is in order.

"My husband has given up hunting. He doesn't need an excuse to drink;", Nessa, that's hilarious!

TLP, don't you think he met the deer, they got drunk, he proposed her and is now taking her home?

Dress in bright orange -- then stay in the house. There you might be safe.

Before my father had a stroke he and my brother used to hunt. They weren't drunk and they used every useable part of the animal. I think my father actually wanted to cook spleen stew but my mother drew the line at that one. There was always lots of venison. A bit gamey for my liking. But the jerky was good.
I guess my father and brother were in the minority. It sucks to have to be nervous to walk in the woods. Not that I ever have the time or the energy these days, but it sucks anyway!

mr lime and two of the limelettes will be out in the woods and sober. we do hunt for the meat and a decent sized deer will feed us for most of the year.

very funny picture.

That's a nice message below:)

Golly. Doesn't mileage count for anything, anymore?

G said...

A sobering thought.

This reminds me of the Abbott and Costello skit:

Abbott: Do you hunt hear?
Costello: No I don't, sweetheart.

G said...

Okay, I see I've totally messed that one up, here goes:

Abbott: Do you hunt deer?
Costello: No I don't, sweetheart.

Oh, men with guns! Drunk men with guns! *running away*

PI said...

Do you have an anti hunt faction? We do and they have more or less stopped it on Exmoor which is devastating to Exmoor itself.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I do not get "hunting"..How can killing any living creature be a "sport"...Sorry all you hunters out there...But it doesn't surprise me to know that everyone is out there drunk and with gun in hand, too! That hives me such a sense of comfort....NOT!

Libby said...

...just a question...if you're driving the car & hit the bike, which is worth more points?

Minka said...

It's a nice event to bring the whole family too, mother-in laws should get a particular invite!
Accidents can happen!

Jamie Dawn said...

I understand completey all the hubbub over deer hunting season. Here in AR it is BIG time.
I am not a fan of hunting. I don't get the joy of sitting still for hours in the freezing cold just for the chance to shoot a deer.
Wow! That guy on the bike is a dedicated hunter!
He looks like a moron.

If I lived up there, I would paint all my cats orange. Except Fred. He is already orange. But he has white spots that would need to be painted orange.

I would also paint my house orange, my truck orange, and wear orange clothing.

If there was someone I did not like, I would give them the "gift" of a nice brown jacket, with a white spot on the back.

jenn said...

My brother and dad would go hunting at our acreage.

The squirrels were terrified for good reason. The deer...not so much for good reason.

The Snark sent me.

What a great picture!

I've never understood how people can shoot deer.
