Love to fish, camp and boat.! Love all things water. Kind of done with the Hunting thing, but I do love venison!

For deer, I now hunt almost exclusively in the local parks programs. The county and city both have programs to help control the population in the parks.

One park did an count several years ago and found over 120 deer per square mile. ODNR recommends 20-30 per square mile for a healthy population.

Currently in Ohio if you hunt all 3 zones and the urban zones, you can legally harvest 18 deer. Still only one buck but that is a lot of meat. If fact last year Ohio hunters donated over 400,000 meals to Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry. http://www.buckeyefirearms.org/node/7566

I am in Ohio, all of the land around here is privately owned and the public fields get crammed with hunters. Last fall we grilled some bacon wrapped dove breast on a church camp out and fed it to the church admin. That was all it took, last week signed permission slips for three of us to hunt some property the church owns just outside the city limits as long as we continue to bring dove on our fall camps. :)

Those doves are quick, erratic little things. The Ohio DNR ran a survey a couple of years ago and they found it took on average 10 shells per bird. I generally do a little better then that, but some days I swear it costs my $15 worth of shells for one little breast!

Yeah, I'm counting them down myself man! Where do you live? I have to drive minimum 2hrs to get into some areas that'll hold doves. This year we're heading down south and see what what we can scare up!

It's just a movie and not personal view, just something interesting I saw the other day in this movie: Powder.

TXhunter, yes I fly fish as well, mostly creeks around my home. I'm very lucky to have a wife understands my need to breath the fresh air of the great outdoors.

Ever make it up this way let me know, we can wet a line or blast some shot maybe do both.

Pretty much all of my trout fishing is on a fly, Kamloops fishing mantra is that within an hour of the city you can fish a different lake every day of the year, we are very lucky!

Summer fishing we catch perch, bluegill, crappie, northern pike, large and small-mouth bass .Ice fishing pretty much only bluegill, perch, and northerns. I addicted to duck hunting and have been for 30 years. We still have a few quail and woodcocks around. I manage to kick up a pheasant or two but most of them have been released. Love dove hunting that is great for improving your shooting skills.

Good job Amy, any plans to out again this year? My wife is a fishes and shoots too, she has hunted with me a couple times and likes it but her time is limited during hunting season.

I don't hunt but do plenty of trout fishing up here in BC, on the lakes around Kamloops, also salmon fish the rivers and ocean and fish for sturgeon on the Fraser River. LOTS of good fishing around here!

I think I replyed to your message, but got it a little backwards. Spike first time out? that's great, I killed my first buck last year on opening day ( 7pt), was thrilled beyond belief. Do you hunt other game?

Moose hunt?! Wow, good luck w/ that one! I also love to upland bird hunt (only dove down here, might try and look for some woodcock later in the winter) I look forward to squirrel and most definitely deer. Had the opportunity to duck hunt last year, hope to do some more of it. Your place sounds nice, I hope to have some land in the future to pass along the hunting tradition to our kids one day. Ice fishing looks pretty interesting too, what do you catch up there anyway?

that's terrific! My wife shot her first last year too, little guy, but she was so excited! We hope she'll take a good one this year. It is an experience!

Big Time here. Avid hunter, fishing, shooter, and boater. I hunt upland birds, deer, waterfowl, and working on a moose hunt for next year. We have a lake home in Northern Indiana that we go to as much as possible. Great fishing and boating. I ice fish and waterfowl hunt there also.

I've hunted and fished for many years. Unfortunately, time is at a premium now but always find time for deer hunting in the Fall and bass fishing several times a year.

I know you asked the guys, but I love to hunt, fish, and camp. I shot my first deer last November, just a spike though, but I had the adrenaline rush really bad. Very exciting, and the meat was very tasty.
