    I grew up hunting, and would do it more often if I had someone to hunt with. However, I'm not very keen on teaching newbies how to shoot a gun. Out in the woods, that could be fucking dangerous! icon_lol.gif

    Ironically, I could never shoot an animal. But I could totally shoot a person if they pissed me off enough, maybe not fatally but like.......in the ass or something.

    I've never hunted before but always wanted to give it a try. I've fired rifles before and i'm technically a qualified survival instructor so i love being out in the bush. Through the survival training i learned how to fish and build traps for small game but never worked up to hunting.

    I think the reason you're not getting more responses is most sane people don't think of killing as something pleasurable. If your idea of a good time is going out and killing something, I think you need therapy. And don't give me that shit about how you eat everything you kill. You're looking for buddies to go hunt with because you like it.....plain and simple. I steer clear of sport hunters because in my opinion, something ain't screwed on right in their brains.

    You're right. I do like hunting, plain and simple. That's why I posted here, to talk with other guys who like hunting or are interested in it. Well here are my thoughts. You don't know me or any of the others that posted to this forum. There are plenty of other forums that you may fit better. I encourage you or anyone who has comments of morality or actually any other topic not posted in a friendly manor to seek elsewhere. I'm not interested in a debate. That's not why this was posted, remember. ENJOY GUYS.


    p.s. WE live on a farm and raise our own meet and eat it too

    Pretty good reason to do it. Too bad what few of us there are - we're so far apart.

    I actually know more lesbians (6) that hunt (deer/elk) than gay men (4). We are out there but mostly in the rural areas. I am the token 'mo in our deer/elk/fishing camp. I have a bud who's gay and a PDX cop who bow hunts eastern OR w/a crew of fellow gay and straight officers.

    All the state Fish and Game stats. show fewer and fewer tags are sold every year for all kinds of hunting. They use that $$ to run the agency and manage wildlife populations which hunting and hunters are a tool to control population numbers.

    I think you'll find if you didn't grow up hunting and using firearms you'll never be comfortable with it. The reality is a day of "hunting" is usually a day of armed hiking. Plinking cans/targets and shooting trap is a blast and most fellas could get into that I suspect. Skeet clubs are relatively inexpensive and annual membership to a gun club like Tri-County Gun Club south of Portland, OR, is like $100 and allows the use of their handgun ranges and longer ranges for rifle shooting. I get to shoot there w/a couple buds who are federal agents and most if not all cops need to qualify 2x/year or more often so they shoot a lot and I get to tag along sometimes.

    Hunting is a very personal way to harvest some protein in which something else dies. Most folks are so disconnected from our food supply that the packet of burger or flat of chicken breasts they buy at the grocery store in their mind never was a 700 pound cud chewing doe eyed heifer or a clucking, scratching, turf tearing hen. I have a lot of respect for vegetarians and am considering leaning more that way myself for health reasons. For anyone who is a meat eater to denigrate hunting isn't thinking through the issue that they are allowing someone else to do their animal slaughtering for them. Domestic livestock is conceived to be eaten and most live a tough life and have a scary and brutal death. Factory farms and modern food handling are enough to turn most folks into veggies if they would avail themselves of the issue and information.

    I grew up on a small central NY dairy and beef farm and life and death of stock was a daily occurrence. These animals had a pretty good life unlike the modern factory farms where chicken, veal and pork are produced and beef is slaughtered. Farms are commercial operations not charities and so many pretty, doe eyed but old and dry Jersey cows from our farm went to the auction house and became ground beef (most ground beef is comprised of the bits of up to 100 utility cows/old milk cows w/a some beef cow flecks mixed in.

    I guess my point is if you knew where your meat was coming from and how it lived you might just consider procuring your own protein and not being a part of the factory farming production of food.

    Great idea. Here in MA you need to take a class to get your hunting license and an additional course to be able to use a firearm out in the field. Bow hunting is also an option but many states require some kind of training for this too.

    It's pretty hard to find gay guys who are interested in hunting and shooting.

    Hey Tree Jock.... If you ever come to Texas let me know... I have gone dove hunting years ago. It was fun. I would need practice and some work lol.. if your willing to train. lol... I think in life we need to be open to try new stuff. I do have a new addiction to Hogs gone wild on Discovery Channel. lol.... Those suckers are mean. But I'm interested in learning the Ropes of Hunting.

    I just want to say I joined because of this thread, although the only hunting I've done is bow fishing in kentucky. I prefer shooting just to shoot, target, skeet, plinking, comp its all fun, although I wouldn't be opposed to learning how to hunt, although I don't really have any firearms for the occasion, most of mine are more on the tactical side of things. This is the first forum where I have encountered other gay men who have a remote interest in firearms.

    Yes there are so many moose running around in Toronto, to shoot at, that we rarely buy beef. We sell it to the eskimos!

    Very true. And it is easy to find out about the conditions that domestic livestock endure. Veal calves, for example. I could not hunt but I do participate in the cruelty and suffering these animals endure. Something to think about.

    an easy way for us gun owners to meet up at a public fun place would be at like knob creek gun show (its in kentucky) good times, there's guns u can purchase, rent, etc. and its held like twice a year although it can get pretty pricey and by guns to rent i mean its a class 3 gun show where u can rent someone's full auto AK or AR and burn through 100rds or a dillion mini gun (the funnest 120secs of your life; that thing burns 6K rounds a minute)

    just a thought
