    RSA to be placed on “Do Not Travel” list??

    Of course they are going to recommend against any form of travel. What else would you expect from this administration? As far as I am concerned, any information or advice coming from the State Department, CDC, WHO, or any other agenda-driven bureaucratic agency is as about as worthless as the...

    Hunting Buffalo in South Africa vs everywhere else

    Hmmm? Do you really believe that the number of legal, ethical hunters are the minority of all hunters? I believe the opposite to be true. I think the data from the number of hunting licenses and tags issued in the USA annually compared to the number of game violations is a pretty good indicator...

    Hunting Buffalo in South Africa vs everywhere else

    In looking back, that's not exactly what you said was it? What you actually did was make a backhanded innuendo slighting "some" high fenced hunting outfitters and then cherry-picked 3 videos supposedly depicting what you consider to be canned, unethical hunts taking place on high fenced...

    BBC: Germany and Namibia: What is the right price to pay for genocide?

    I think they are choosing denial. Think about what is the easiest. To follow the narratives of a party that offers you victimhood status and hand-outs, or the teachings of a small handful of individuals who challenge you to believe that we as individuals must take responsibility for ourselves...

    Hunting Buffalo in South Africa vs everywhere else

    You shot off your mouth making a broad, inaccurate, and offensive generalization about how high fenced hunting operations in Africa offer no contributions to conservation or habitat preservation efforts. In the form of several rhetorical questions to better highlight your ignorance, I listed a...

    Hunting Buffalo in South Africa vs everywhere else

    Firstly, if we are being honest with ourselves, this fight was lost because the anti's threw far more money and propaganda into the battle. Cecil and the false narratives created from that social media debacle fated the lion importation issue. Lots of blame and regret to go around for everyone...

    I will concede that you are actually correct on 2 accounts: 1) You actually do get to judge. 2) I do choose not to care about your judgment on me, or anyone else hunting within the limits of the law. I really don't think there is anyone on here that has a more profound understanding of the...

    BBC: Germany and Namibia: What is the right price to pay for genocide?

    Exactly! If you go by the left's perverted version of selective history, slavery didn't exist in the world until came to North America in the late 1500's when it was invented by Caucasian European settlers. You also never hear them mention that slavery and genocide had long existed in the...

    Hunting Buffalo in South Africa vs everywhere else

    Just because you haven't seen it doesn't mean it's not completely plausible to condition a leopard, or any wild animal for that matter, to lose their fear of human presence through baiting or supplemental feeding. I've seen plenty of videos where the cat is already in the tree at 3pm before the...

    Hunting Buffalo in South Africa vs everywhere else

    With all respect to your opinion, you see a difference because you are viewing this through your own personal perspective rather than an objective one. You are making the argument that an animal which has been conditioned over time to come to any kind of bait or water that has been placed by a...

    I believe the hunter in the first video was using a handgun... Not a rifle. Regardless, as I said, it's not a hunt I would do, but I feel it would be hypocritical to admonish or disparage anyone who chose to do it.. Wow.. You must explain this one to me.. Does it matter how big the baited...

    I never said it was my idea of dangerous game hunting either, but I would be a complete and total hypocrite to denounce another hunter's legal preference of what he/she finds rewarding... And, I think we still are on the same sheet of music as long as you are wiling to acknowledge and denounce...

    Hunting Buffalo in South Africa vs everywhere else

    Hmmm...? Not sure of the issue of the 2nd video, but what's the objection in the 1st or 3rd? Is it because these are in a high fence or because they're over bait? So, is a baited leopard hunt as equally objectionable? Maybe it's not everyone's preferred style of hunting, but it is certainly not...

    Not to get too far off track, but there seems to be a popular misconception by most non-Americans and possibly some Americans that tip income here in the USA is free, untaxable income.

    If it is practical for you to take a backup bow as in having a 2-bow case, by all means do so. However, this alone will not solve your problem should they lose your bow case.
