Dear Season in da Ozarks

biped...."Today is "Opening" Day for the "main" deer season in Missouri. Dat means we stay inside because we live in da middle of a forest and there are lots of idiots out there. Now we have nothing against "real" hunters. Grampa was one and so was Great Grampa who both were what you'd call naturalists. Great Grampa took city folk up into the high country of Yosemite and Grampa was a forest ranger in Yosemite. In their days hunting was a means for a modest (poor) man to provide food for his family. Sometime during the mid 50's the sport of hunting was born and to quote grampa "hunting went to he&& in a hand basket". Grampa was always at odds with the park management because to satisfy politians they would inflate the number of the deer population so that permits would be issued for special hunts inside Yosemite Park. Over the years the hunting situation got so bad that it was almost laughable. The city folk would load their shiny new guns into their cars and head to the hill country where they shot anything that moved. Farmers would actually go out and paint their animals hoping to save their lives."



heesh....."Since we like deers we decided to help them out a bit by converting our dove sanctuary into a deer sanctuary. For those that didn't fit we used our artistic talents.""



heesh...."A lot of da hunters are preety clueless so its easy to fool them."

Stay safe - we don't go out but it is the same here. You always hear some person got shot accidently by hunters!

LOLOLOLOLOLOL Mom saw a duck hunter kayaking out into the wetlands and thought of the Bugs Bunny cartoons: "Rabbit season!" "Duck season!" "Rabbit season!" "Duck season!"
