bowhunting is a pita, chasing arrows,

having them be damaged. Slingshot lacks enough range to suit me. 10m is about it for reliable hits on small birds, etc. A quality .22 pistol does well, but the noise sucks. The silenced little Beretta .22, tho, that was the cat's meow. With patience, a strap chair folding blind and bait, you can use one to take a dozen praire dogs a day, but i just dont like being in the open that much and the risk of bubonic plague means that eating them is a no-no. So the squirrels became my favorite mark. You dont have to leave many salted peanuts, corn on the cob, birdseed, etc, around, up where rats can't get them, for very long at all, before your area become full of squirrels. My ex-wife had a 40 acre plot up in the mountains. with a secure, gated place to leave the vehicle, no noise to attract attention, I spent some truly enjoyable days out there. and young squirrels make fantastic stew meat, too. :-) The place had been set up as a y2k retreat and had the only water source for miles. It was an old bath tub. and she'd pay me to go up there , let the dogs exercise in the woods, and hand- pump it full of water at least once a week. and also pump 5 gallon waterjugs full of water once a week. She insisted upon giving that well water to her two little mutts. So I'd fill the jugs via a hose at her office, or at a friend's place if the office had our employees present, let the dogs run for a bit, then tie them to a tree and go squirrel hunting with the canned M21 :-) it would have taken hours to do that pumping by hand. the well was like 200 ft deep, with a $1000 special pump. You had to really work hard to get a gallon a minute out of that sob. And I'm going to fill a 30 gallon bath tub and half a dozen 5 gallon jars, right? :-) I' WOULD fill the bathtub, cause she COULD check on that, and because it DiD keep animals in the area. I"d fill the jugs with the hose, use them to fill the bath tub, then fill them again after I got back down from the mountain and take them to her condo. A guy was in on the scam and he'd almost die trying to contain his laughter every time my ex would be bragging on her 'oxygenated" well -water.

I'm friends with a couple of dedicated bow hunters, that I'm very sure that their experience would prove your claims invalid! What is the relevance of including a story about your ex wife, to the discussion about survival?

I don't bow hunt, and acknowledge that it means I can't claim any expertise.

Gunkid doesn't bow hunt, but still claims expertise to the point of omniscience. (Once again emulating the political and religious tyrants that he claims to hate.)

Bow hunting is fun, challenging, and rewarding. If you’re chasing arrows, you need to practice more.

I no longer can shoot groups at 30 yards of less because I’m breaking arrows, so I shot spots instead. Got my 4th Robin Hood last week after changing my release. So I was doing what I shouldn’t have. Second shot right into my first. My arrows with field points run about 17 a piece.

Bow hunting is the only way I hunt elk anymore...

Maybe his survival depends on his current spouse and he is scared?

You don't, or can't? nobody has seen a single bit of evidence that you are capable of any of the stuff you claim. In fact, each passing thread shows the opposite.

You could prove us all wrong and demonstrate that you're capable of any of this, but you fight and argue, instead of doing a simple thing that a 12 year could do in a heartbeat.

you must be really scared to fight so hard to avoid being discovered.

Prove us wrong. I'm confident you can't and you know it.

I would lay odds that you are correct in that evaluation.

Wow. Lying to your wife, scamming your wife, stealing from your wife & simultaneously defrauding your employer (if she was paying you to do a job, that makes her your employer rather than your partner), doing only the part of the job that your employer could visually confirm, and bragging about some guy constantly laughing at your wife because she foolishly trusted you.

With morals, ethics, family values and work-ethic that pitiful, it’s nearly universal that it (in the long run) creates an inevitable dumpster-fire of a life. The kind of life that’s dependent on govt welfare checks, govt-provided mind altering drugs, govt-provided disability checks, false memories of accolades and accomplishments, and foundationless daydreams that turn into prophecies of “someday” achieving something of value. Look at many low-income ghettos and trailer parks - they're top-heavy with lazy people who always looked for a shortcut and ended up in poverty.

That’s a shame John. You could do so much more.
