Hunting related sayings or thoughts...

Recommended Posts

I remember an old one from my Dad... " A deer thinks every hunter is a stump in the woods. A turkey thinks every stump in the woods is a hunter". Anybody have others?

Regarding turkey hunting.....

If you persevere, you will eventually kill some turkeys  that you do not deserve....However, at the same time you will deserve many more turkeys that you do not kill.....  Quoted  ( more or less) From Tom Kelly's book  " The Tenth Legion"...

Truer words were never spoken....( Quoted from Pygmy  4/12/2018.....)

Bow hunting :

It's better to be in a the right tree to get a deer that you might see ;

than be in a tree to see deer that you only might get


I've hunted almost everyday of my life.. the rest have been wasted!

Another one regarding turkey hunting....

Any time that you are in contact with an adult gobbler, events are constantly occurring, any one of which can make the difference  in whether you win the game or lose it....

Regarding wingshooting.....In order to make a double,  you need to be sure to kill the first bird....If you are thinking about the second bird, you'll probably miss the first one...

The No. 1 rule in Deer hunting is to go where the Deer are.

A bad day hunting still beats a good day working

Shoot the deer not the rack.

Count the points after it is dead

 And when someone says they missed or made a bad shot yet knows the number of points the buck had.

If you had time to count the points you had time to make a good shot.

One more.  Don't just shoot aim.

If turkey's could sniff you out like the deer do, they'd be almost unkillable.

I was just going to say; if turkey's could smell..........

"The best time to hunt and fish was just before you got here and right after you left."

"Never test the depth of water with both feet".

"You only get so many sunrises."

And for Pygmy

"Hunting is like sex, when it is good it is awesome and when it is not it is still awesome!"
