Re: New to hunting.
Of all the hunting I did back east, the most enjoyable was coon hunting with my dogs. Also enjoyed fox hunting at night with an old battery record player with squealing rabbits on the record. We still get a kick out of the fox pro here around the house and have called in fox, lynx, young wolves, but the ravens are the funniest.
I've had bear coming into my barrel last week or so. Saw one tonight when the boy and I were riding out my trail to cut a new trail to someplace else. Bear took one look and off he went, was a nice one, over 300 lber. The boy had a pistol but we had work to get done; he might shoot one this weekend. If you can bear hunt over bait, now that's fun too.
Ya know what my kids always enjoy? Lots of shooting and killing. I always let them fill my caribou tags, let them do all the shootin. What do you have back east you can shoot alot of. Laugh, but when we were kids, we shot pigeons at this farmers feed lot and it was fun.
