Don't worry he is at the vets office and expected to make a full recovery,it"s all good it was an accident the gun just went off!!Mr Kaczor is remorseful and is taking care of all doc bills,RIGHT Mr Kaczor!!
Ah, RS, the Bambi syndrome, I suppose. I also suffer from it - the idea of killing any animal tends to upset me, much less cute ones like deer or rabbit. But I also know some very fine people (like Paul) that are hunters and that kill these animals for food. No different really than those of us who buy beef or pork or chicken at our local supermarkets, and perhaps even more humane (at least that deer was free until his quick death - animals raised for slaughter are often raised in horrid conditions). So I try to be understanding and rational about hunting. I just wish sometimes that they only killed ugly animals.

Re: Re: Dear Mr. Kaczor
Grrr. I vote we hunt the Bravenet idiot that created that darn little box - that last post took me 4 tries!
I like your veiw on the subject Toni, and understand how some people who do not hunt feel about it. I am a hunter, and like Paul I also killed a dear. I follow all the rules and eat what I harvest. The state I live in (Wisconsin), is over populated with deer and hunting helps keep the population under control. Deer present problems by eating the farmers crops and cause several automobile crashes every year, some fatal. I know this first hand, four years ago I hit a buck at 50 mph and totaled my truck and narrowly missed hitting a tree when the hood covered the windsheild. I am a hunter, but I also love and respect nature and animals, including deer.

Re: Re: Dear Mr. Kaczor
Not only the crops and automobiles suffer from over population, but also the deer themselves. Because of urban sprawl, they have less and less grazing land and are more susceptible to starvation and disease. By "thinning the heard", you allow the heard to be strong and healthy. There is nothing sadder than seeing what should be a magnificent beast in the woods with his ribs showing from lack of food. And like Bob L. said, "eat what you harvest". Now, with that said, I'm going to go eat me a duck billed plattapuss burger!!! Mmmm, mmm, good!!!
Yep! Jan bagged a nice deer two weeks ago in her Honda CRV.
Luckily she had just started from a triffic light and was only going about 30 mph. ONLY $3000.00 damage.
The good thing was the airbags didn't go off. Aside from adding about $4000.00 to the damage I don't think I'm looking forward to gettting hit in the face at 300 mph with a bunch of canvas.......
The poor deer didn't make it though. This time of the year, around my house they run around in the eveings in packs like a bunch of rats. And they act like squirrls. They can be all the way across the road and just shoot back across on front of you. This one came from behind a big fir tree at full speed. A second sooner and he (she) would have made it.....a second later and it would have plowed into the side (my side) of the car.
Timing is everything.............
IT,S NEVER GOOD FOR ME WHEN I READ (DEAR MR. KACZOR) HOW YOU DOIN R.S., I DID SHOOT A DEER, AND 601 PROBABLE DESCRIBED IT BEST EXCEPT FOR ONE TERRIBLE TWIST IN THE DEERS CONDITION, I WAS GOING TO EMAIL YOU 601 AND PASS ALONG THE BAD NEWS (HE DIDN,T MAKE IT ) AND NOW ALL I,AM LEFT WITH 601 IS A HUGH VET BILL A NICE RACK AND A BUNCH OF STEAKS ,CHOPS,ROASTS AND GROUND MEAT I COULDN,T RESIST R.S., BUT YOU GOTTA ADMIT IT,S HUMOROUS. TRUTH IS I,VE BEEN HUNTING FOR #35 YEARS AND I,VE HARVESTED #33 DEER, ALL FAIR HUNT, TAGGED AND LEGAL. I THINK BOB SAID IT BEST, AND I THINK HE SHOULD KNOW BEING A FELLOW HUNTER. HI TONI, YOU,RE TOO NICE BUDDY ,AND YOU,RE RIGHT ON AS ALWAYS,AND YOU ALWAYS SEEM TO HAVE A VERY REASONABLE AND INFORMED OPINION ON ANY SUBJECT THAT IS BROUGHT UP, AND WE LOVE YA FOR THAT .I WORKED AT A TURKEY FARM ABOUT #5 YEARS AGO, TONI AS A FAVOR FOR A FRIEND THAT OWNED IT, AND IF R.S. ATE A TURKEY THIS YEAR HE TOOK PART IN SOMETHING MUCH WORSE, THAT WAS DONE TO AN ANIMAL THAN SOMEONE SHOOTING A DEER. I,AM SURE SOME OF YOU WILL BE HAVING ANOTHER TURKEY FOR X-MAS IF NOT NEXT YEAR, SO I,LL NOT DESCRIBE THE LIFE OF A TURKEY BEFORE YOU EAT IT AFTER HUNTING SEASON IS OVER I PERSONALLY PAY FOR #4000 POUNDS OF SHELLED CORN THAT IS PUT OUT FOR THE DEER, TURKEYS,SQUIRRELS,COONS, BIRDS, CHIPMUNKS,E.T.C.TO HELP THEM GET THRU THE HARSH WINTERS HERE IN P.A., SO I DO MY PART ALSO TO MAINTAIN ALL WILDLIFE KNOW ONE IS MORE INTO SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT AND WILDLIFE R.S. THAN I,AM .I ALMOST FORGOT WE ALSO PUT OUT OVER #700 POUNDS OF BIRD SEED YEAR ROUND FOR THE SONG BIRDS AND ANY OF THE OTHER BIRDS WHO EAT IT HERE IN PA WE ALSO SENT A $100.00 DOLLARS DOWN TO THE GULF COAST TO HELP SAVE THE ANIMALS DOWN THERE AFTER THE STORM. I WONDER HOW MANY OTHERS BOTHERED TO FEED THE WILDLIFE OR FEED THE BIRDS, OR HELP THE POOR ANIMALS, AFTER A STORM PEACE PAUL
As a fellow sufferer from 'Bambi Syndrome' I hate seeing animals suffer. Where I live we see lat of wildlife, deer, foxes, squirrels...even the odd cow has escaped from the farm across the road, and wandered through the streets here, of what we used to call Knot's Landing.
Occasionally something will get whacked, but there is nothing more chilling than a young deer writhing in agony after being hit by a car. I have had a near miss with one, but must confess to dispatching a rabbit. I didn't actually hit it...just drove over the top of it. I stopped and picked it up...completely unmarked, but dead. All I could hear was Rosie saying, "Oh Alan, the poor wee thing, what a shame, are you going to bury it?"
She wasn't pleased when I said "Where the **** am I going to get a priest at this time of night?"

Re: Re: Re: Dear Mr. Kaczor
I THINK THAT MAKES THE MOST SINCE HENRIK, AND UNTIL PEOPLE WHO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT WILL BE HONEST WITH US, AND THEMSELVES, I DON,T EVEN UNDERSTAND IT. BUT WHEN THEY GO TO THE STORE WHAT DO THEY THINK THERE EATING PIGS, COWS, CHICKENS, TURKEYS,AND ALL YOU,RE SEAFOOD WAS ALSO A LIVE LIVING BEING WHAT ABOUT VEAL, FOR GOD SAKE, I GUESS WE ALL KNOW HOW GOOD THAT TASTES, AND THATS A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE BABY COW RIGHT I GUESS NO ONE WANTS TO TAKE ME UP ON THE DETAILS OF THE LIFE AND DEATH OF THERE THANKS GIVING TURKEYS THEN HUH THANKS HENRIK, HOW YOU BEEN OVER THERE BUD? PEACE PAUL P.S. DID I EVER ASK YOU IF YOU COULD GET AN OLD C.D. BY B.B. KING (RED HOT AND BLUE), IF YOU COULD CHECK I,D APPRECIATE IT (THANKS)
Hey Paul, I forgot all about that album, "Red, Hot, and Blue". I heard it years ago. It's a realy good "memphis style" record, if you can get over the fact that Lee Atwater (Yes, THAT Lee Atwater, campaign director for Reagen/Bush in '84 and Bush Sr's chairman of the Republican National Committe) is on the album. Apearently, he had a lot to do with the putting the album together. Actualy, if you did'nt know who he was, you'd think he's just some memphis r&b musician you'd never heard of. I swear, I'm not making this up. Besides B.B., the album also features Sam Moore, Carla Thomas, and Isaac Hayes, among others.
THAT IS A GOOD ONE ROB, I KNOW IT,S OUT OF PRINT, AND I,AM NOT SO SURE IT WAS EVER PUT OUT ON DISC. THE DEER THING IS NO BIG DEAL ROB IT SEEMED A BIT OVER BOARD THOU. I,AM COOL MY MAN NO PROBLEM PEACE PAUL
Hey Paul, just for the heck of it, I went to amazon.com and looked for "red, hot, and blue". It said you can buy it new from them for $5.98!!! I've never ordered anything from them, but if you can't find it in a store near you, you might give 'em a try. You won't find it under "B.B. King" though, it's official title is "Red, Hot, and Blue: Lee Atwater & Friends". Hope this helps. Peace, Rob
NO SHI. ROB , THATS COOL MAN I,VE BEEN ASKING FOR THE WRONG THING. THEY ALWAYS JUST SAID , B.B. KING RED, HOT AND BLUE ON THE RADIO, OOOH I SEE NOW. THE RIGHT TITLE ALWAYS HELPS HUH THANKS ROB PEACE PAUL
