William's Blog...with a smile!


Like many other things, Hunting has an ethics to it.

Just like everything else in life...(with the exception of Politics)  There is an ethics to it if you look close enough.

In Hunting, it is the 'Fair" chase. 

Part of the fair chase on deer is you can not bait them.  In other words, you can't set out say a large pile of corn and then ambush them when the deer come to it.

Years ago when you were hunting for Food, this was acceptable and even one of the few way to ensure you would have meat to eat.

My dad was part of the old ways for years, although he finally changed about 15 years ago.

Now when dad feeds the deer he puts out this sign....



I guess this may cover him!

Thanks for the laugh, Bill.  I like that sign.  I do believe there are ethics codes for activities like this for good reasons.

I just shoot deer I feed with my Nikon. I don't eat them and I don't shoot them.  But I don't mind hunting for food.

Funny sign, love the humor

"Baiting Deer" reminds me of the chumming of Cecil the Lion to get him out of the national park to be killed by that idiot dentist!

Hi William Feela ,  Did he put a light on the sign?  They may have trouble reading it in the dark!!!
