Remember the 70's?

5 posts in this topic

COLD COLD COLD, Seemed like it was always windy. Had to hunt for days to even see a deer. Then you had to see horns before you could shoot. We got to the woods before first light and left after dark, No fires, no warming up in the truck, cold rolls, cold sandwiches, cold chicken, cold coffee, and to finish off the day... frozen beer. Things sure have changed. Kind of miss it, but not enough to give up all the neet stuff we use nowadays and do it over again. How about you guys and gals.

I sure do remember hunting in the 70's! shocked.gif....old timer here grin.gif...in 71', there was no deer season and the seasons to follow sure were cold!...remember hunting

at almost 20 below a couple times(mid 70's)....frost on my eyebrows,frost on my shoulders, I remember standing on a tote road waiting for drivers to push deer toward me...2 deer popped out about 60 yards away,I was so cold ,I couldn't even get the gun to my shoulder, my muscles were so stiff...I could barely talk my jaw muscles were so stiff grin.gif(first phases of hypothermia) ....one morning at 14 below, I got up in my pick-up camper(hunted the Togo area about 78') my sleeping bag was froze to the camper wall with me in it grin.gif...no global warming going on in the 70's grin.gif

I am not from the seventies however my dad is. He always talks about hunting then and how one year like Johnny said, no season. Refering to the cold temps I remember a couple years ago, I shot a doe when it was minus 17. I know thats far from the norm but hey that what one of the times I enjoyed gutting a deer, it warmed me up! grin.gif

Ever notice though, no matter how cold you are you suddenly don't feel cold when a deer enters the picture?

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
