Thread: Are we all getting a bit technical?

  1. #1

    Are we all getting a bit technical?

    Ive not been a member on here long and its the first stalking forum Ive used but what I have noticed within the stalking fraternity is that its all getting a bit technical.

    Alot of people seem to spend more time using gadgets and gizmos to aid them in their stalking/foxing/shooting when alot of the time they arent really needed.

    Does anybody else still just grab a rifle, a stick, a knife and some bullets and head off out?

    It may be different for alot of you that just do a little bit of high seat stuff but I know for myself, the lighter I can travel on the hill the better.

    Anyone else understand where im coming from?

    Its all getting a bit "american"

    Yes me. If you add binoculars to the kit.
    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A f**kin bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?"

    I just grab some smoke flares, a radio and call in the fly boys for a strike - now that's the 'Merican way.
