Good news for Disney World! . . . Alligator hunting has become big business in Florida -“It’s a well-known fact that Florida has a lot of alligators. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission estimates the state is home to about 1.3 million of the freshwater reptiles. So how many of them are hunted? More than 87,000 between 2000 and 2015 by the FWC, which coordinates two gator hunting programs: the statewide nuisance alligator program and the recreational statewide alligator harvest program.” Tastes like chicken, but then what doesn’t?
My only commentary on this video: some of these hunters could have dropped the camera and defended themselves. You see a dangerous animal charging you and these idiots are like “But first let me take a selfie!” Sounds like something I would do though.
Beware! Darwin is out there, somewhere . . . 16-year-old dies after hunting accident in Charlotte Co. – “A 16-year-old male was accidentally shot and killed in a hunting accident Friday evening, according to the Va. Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF). The Game Commission says this happened on private property on Mt. Carmel Rd. in Charlotte County around 5:20 p.m. They say a 17-year-old male was hunting and mistook his 16-year-old friend, who was hunting with him, as a deer. The 16-year-old died at the scene.”
I hate to disappoint those of you who’ve joined the overly commercialized hunt for Big Foot, but the search for the mythical creature has hit a road block in the State of New York [click on link for letter]. “The simple truth of the matter,” NY Chief Biologist Gordon R. Batcheller writes, “is that there is no such animal anywhere in the world.” I guess all those Comic Con nerds will have to find a new outdoor activity to participate in… Good thing the chupacabra myth hasn’t been rejected by the State of Texas. Oh it’s on!
This email’s been circulating on the net. It’s veracity has been questioned . . . St. Martins Island Deer Poachers Rumor – “From our raid on St. Martins Island on Nov. 19, 2009. Thirty-one bucks and nine does on the pole. Nothing smaller than a seven-point. Another approximately 10 deer, antlers and heads found on the ground around the camp. A mix of smaller bucks and does. Ten deer without tags, approximately another 10 deer with wives’/girlfriends’ tags. Investigation continues.” Truth or lie boy that’s a lot a venison!
Michigan maliciousness . . . Coopersville area men caught illegally duck hunting over bait – “Fifty-eight mallards and wood ducks were confiscated in the Sunday morning incident – the second day of the duck hunting season that goes through Dec. 4 in the south zone of Michigan, according to the Grand Haven Tribune. Not only were the duck hunters well over the legal limit of how many birds they could take, they were also hunting over bait – which is illegal, according to Conservation Officer Ivan Perez.” These hunters must have hit a sweet spot on a pond and failed to resist the temptation of taking birds past the limit. Imagine telling your wife “Honey, I spent $29,000 on duck hunting in one day.” Dog house for a year for sure.
Corn Picker, 10-Point Whitetail Buck Have Ugly Confrontation “Nature’s not pretty sometimes. Some folks will use tickle chains on a bar in front of tractors when bushhogging to stir up any fawns to keep from running over them. But sometimes things happen and deer get hit. There are other deer and it’s not the end of the world.” For the deer it was.
I don’t talk when I hunt. These pro-gamers get paid to do it. At 42:00, Idiot 1 asks Idiot 2 “Are we shitty hunters?” Answer: you have no idea . . .
