  • Huntin' anyone?

    Just wondered if you guys hunted and if so, what you like to go for.

    I'm in N. California, but we have a ton of game up here. I'm saving up for a Winchester 30.06 and a compound bow-can't wait to use 'em!

    I hunt deer(hope to get one this year for a nice pair of leggings) with a bow and with firearms as well.

    For meat I like to get does, but a buck would not be looked down upon;-)

    I use a recurve bow and a 30-30 rifle.

        It can be, depending on the traditions of your particular affiliation. The woodpecker and dragonfly are all over lots of regalia nowadays - and in a traditional sense, those two guys are all about hunting.

        I just found a couple of yellow flickers, heck, now that I think about it, I find a lot of woodpecker feathers while hunting. Of course I leave all the feathers on the ground because woodpeckers are a protected species and it'd be wrong to have them.

        At any rate, I'm primarily a moose guy. I also shoot at a lot of partridge. I pretend to hunt deer... sometimes I shoot, but not real often. I'm mostly in it for the social aspect of hunting nowadays. Spending time with dad and cousins and uncles you know.

        I collect a lot of hides from coworkers and friends... it keeps me hip deep in braintain and deer hooves - which I use to help a lot of dancers get things done. It's a good time. We dance the hell out of those dead deer around here. They're really important that way.

        I have a real old three-oh-eight bolt action we use for moose and an all purpose bolt action Craig. A four-ten and an eighty year old bolt action Swiss 7.5mm too. I think you can see I like the bolt actions for a rifle.

        I also "shoot" long bow and am starting in on some black powder this year - so I can have more weekends to socialize with my friends and relatives out in the woods.

        Good luck out there fellas - be safe.

          Hey Joe!

          Yeah, I get your point; I did bring it up for a reason though.

          Maybe I'm taking this too literally, but I was taught (I still have a whole lot to learn) that N Trad is a dance that reenact war exploits (tracking or recon) or the hunt.

          I've been itching to hunt lately and was wondering if there is a symbiotic relationship between the two. Maybe N. California is finally gettin' to me... Gest throwin' it out there.

            I would be embarrased to 'reenact' the time I was down in a swamp in NC hunting deer. Saw some fresh tracks and followed them. They were so fresh...the deer was still standing in them!!!

            Deer blew in my ear from about 5' away. Shotgun went one way and I went the other. Damn deer is prolly still telling the same story.

            Anybody wanna try to 'reenact' that story Northern Tradish style!!!


            Why must I feel like that..why must I chase the cat?

                haha yeah! Me and my father were hunting a ridge one time sitting against two big trees and out of no where a doe literally jumps right over us . She hit me in the arm as she was in the air between us. That would be tough to reenact.
