Thread: What's your favourite hunting quotes?

  1. #1

    What's your favourite hunting quotes?

    Here's a couple of mine...

    "One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted...If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job.
    Jose Ortega y Gasset, Meditations on Hunting.

    "But there ain't many troubles that a man caint fixWith seven hundred dollars and a thirty ought six."

    " you don't get bu55er all sitting on the sofa"

    Said to myself if I blank
    Be it stalking shooting or fishing

    A reminder to myself that it isn't the bag but can still be grateful for a guid night out regardless

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Kinetic energy does not matter. Accuracy almost does not matter. The headstamp on the case certainly does not matter. Having more shells in the magazine does not matter. How well you can hit with your rifle is almost all that matters!

    A super high ballistic co-efficient miss tends to be far less effective than published data suggests.
