"If you consider an unsuccessful hunt to be a waste of time, then the true meaning of the chase eludes you all together."

Fred BEAR

never a truer sentence spoken for why we hunt by a great mentor and spokesperson for bowhunting and archery

From: JusPassin Compton's Traditional Bowhunters
Date: 12-Jun-18




True, so why doesn't the same thing apply to fishing? I mean if I sit bobbing up and down all day trying to catch a fish and don't, I have totally wasted my time.

From: yorktown5
Date: 12-Jun-18




Nope JusP. Same thing. After catching a few, I spent 4 fishless hours standing in a trout stream last PM. Watched the bugs, occasional rising trout, an otter catch a fish and a stork stalking the shallows. Spent all day today adjusting my casting with longer range rods plus tying and sorting flies and am heading out again later this PM.

It was a great day.

Right on, Bluesman. I always feel closer to God when I am outdoors and take the time to slowdown, look around, and see how things out there work.

If we have an unsuccessful hunt its all in our set up!

I say I didn't have any shooting.LOL

The Cat

In the Bible just like that exactly? Yeah right! False doctrine!

If it takes you being in the bush to actually feel closer to God whats that really say for us?

Certainly not that we are spiritual. And you really think that comes from God? I certainly don't. Know the truth and it will set you free.

The enemy can sure use a lot of things to trick us all. Beware and be wise and be always be studying like a Bierean to show yourself approved.

Kinda reminds me way back when I got my first bow for Christmas and shot the neighbors chicken in rear end. I didn't figure it was going to fly away with my arrow up its butt. The neighbor lady brought it over asking if we knew anything about it? Oh there was trouble then. LOL

When a neighbor brings prey to you and asks if this is your arrow. Its truth or consequence time.LOL

By the cat.

Worst part was they ate my chicken I killed him and didn't get to eat myself. He was in my yard so i figured fare game. I tried to plead that very thing with my parents but that didn't go over to good. Funny thing was I thought I saw my father try to crack a smile as I got my bow taken off me and my hide tanned.LOL

re. the very first reply in this thread - "True, so why doesn't the same thing apply to fishing? I mean if I sit bobbing up and down all day trying to catch a fish and don't, I have totally wasted my time."

There is a very real difference between fishing and 'catching'. Someone once said, 'The fishing was good, the catching was poor.'

I've never considered one minute of fishing, hunting or shooting to be time 'wasted'. Sometimes I've caught nothing, killed nothing, or couldn't buy a ten ring with gold eagles. But every minute was good.

My Dad, thought I made a mistake once, then found out I was right.

My uncle, if your digging a hole you must dig another to put the dirt in.

Experience is a series of non fatal mistakes.

The life you live is the lesson you teach.

Experience is the hardest kind of teacher, it gives you the test first and the lesson afterwards.

"It's a GREAT...BIG...BUCK...you can tell by the way it holds it head." Said by every half drunk driving deer chaser around here when a they see a yearling deer running across a section. It must be famous, they all say.

Bluesman, I'd modify that first Fred Bear quote to this version: "There are no unsuccessful hunts, none are a waste of time". TK

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."........Robert Heinlein

On Down the Road..........

Hold to the course, though the storms are about you;

Stick to the road where the banner still flies;

Fate and his legions are ready to rout you--

Give 'em both barrels--and aim for their eyes.

Life's not a rose bed, a dream or a bubble,

A living in clover beneath cloudless skies;

And Fate hates a fighter who's looking for trouble,

So give 'im both barrels--and shoot for the eyes.

Fame never comes to the loafers and sitters,

Life's full of knots in a shifting disguise;

Fate only picks on the cowards and quitters,

So give 'em both barrels--and aim for the eyes.

-- Grantland Rice, From "The Sportlight."

“*' It isn't the fellow who's catching lots of fish and shooting plenty of game that's having the good time: it's the chap who's getting ready to do it."

“You may loan your last dollar to a friend ; but never loan him your axe, unless you are certain that he knows how to use it.”

“Darned socks cause blisters, especially when a man does the darning.”

Dean Torges, when asked how I could get my black dye to be as black as the black near the tips and grips of his sunburst Firestyx. - "Make it blacker".

And I think I came up with these myself- "If I ain't gonna catch 'em anyways, I'd rather not catch a 50 pound striper than not catch a five pound bass."

"Surest way to ruin a great day of fishin' is to start keepin' 'em."
