People would be much more happy in their lives if they worried about themselves more and what other people are doing less.
We had a self proclaimed wildlife expert confront our ranch Forman and start a big stink yesterday. The guy didn’t have the slightest idea what the hell he was talking about and after throwing a red ass fit called Austin. Of course he was quickly told he was wrong by TPWD but it doesn’t change the fact that he felt it necessary to confront our employee and threaten him.
What the hell is wrong with people?
Maybe I’ve just not noticed it before or maybe I’m just stupid but it sure seems like these last few years many folks have become emboldened to try and get in the middle of things they have no business sticking their noses in. Additionally, the last few confrontations I’ve had you can see it coming because the said dipshit puffs up like a blowfish and approaches you with that liberal arts degree kind of confidence convinced of their moral superiority.
I’m getting extremely tired of this kinda crap. If it’s not some media panic over climate change or the new epidemic of the week it’s some jack wagon harassing you or your employees while they are trying to do their job.

The older I get the less I tolerate idiots especially F@#k wits that know jack shit about nothing. It is so tempting to just give them a good bitch slapping and tell them to go away and grow up.
Unfortunately we have to many of this type of person in the world.
My pet peeve at the moment is that little Greta Thomberg or whatever she calls herself. People like that are just trying to stir the emotional pot of would be uninformed dogooders..
If they were willing to understand the other side of the argument that OK otherwise just F##k off.

What does this have to do with hunting in Africa.
Mate it has heaps to do with Africa. Ask any land owner or Phone Namibia just what the greenies are trying to do to hunting and you will know.
Their attitudes would wipe out all hunting if they could.
That's what it's got to do with Africa my son.

More than that, Gizmo is with a group in Texas and was confronted over mule deer, if I read right. Mule deer are native to the USA! The website mentions exotic game like zebra and scimitar oryx. If an "expert" gets upset over domestic US game, imagine if they found out about the exotic animals too.

@gizmo, Is this what you would’ve looked like if you’d walked up on it?

I met Burton Gilliam (the actor in this video) at a golf tournament a few years ago. A great guy and a good golfer. Can't speak to his hunting cred. He had some funny stories about filming Blazing Saddles. He lives in the Dallas area and appears occasionally in local TV commercials. After the golf tournament he gave me an autographed pic from Blazing Saddles that I keep on my desk.
As for Gizmo's issues with a "guest" hunter. Whew! I'm amazed today at how everyone is an "expert" on everything. I'm guessing that guy won't be allowed back at the Rockin' G.

I see now thanks for clarifying

Idiots are everywhere. Example: If you have followed the news a an albino giraffe was killed by poachers recently in Kenya. I read the article and then scanned the comments. One knucklehead stated that it was so wrong and trophy hunting needs to be banned to prevent this! Unbelievable.

No offense taken to your question but @WebleyGreene455 beat me to it. Additionally though, I posted this in the general chat section which is for miscellaneous chat.

Whats crazy is he wasn't a guest or a hunter. He's a farmer that owns some land a few miles down the road. I'm sure he leases his farm ground for hunting and considers himself an "outfitter". Basically what it boiled down to is he got the red ass because I was "stealing" deer which isn't the case. I am however protecting young mule deer from the dipshits he leases his ground to that shoot every fork horn they see. I do keep some of these deer back to sell for hunts but I also re-released deer when I can once they are mature enough.

what I think this is most about is the ability for one of our friends and fellow members on here to be able to vent and vegetate with other fellow members so that he don't go kick some ass and end up in a lawsuit,I hope he has the sense to stay away and on his own property and mind his own business,If your not doing right Gizmo Im sure the state will let you know,keep up your good work and ignore this a-Hole

The only sensible thing that Greta kid said was that she shouldn't be there but back in school across the ocean. Somebody get her a paddle, apply it to her backside, and tell her to use it to go home. What a bunch of emotional gibberish.

Sorry folks but I had to vent a bit. There has been several things with idiots trying to assert themselves on my businesses that have gotten me a bit wound up.
I just really miss the good ole days when people minded their own damn business or if they had a question they asked like a decent human being.

The good old days when if you mouthed off on the playground another kid would shut it for you. Some days I was the mouth and some days I was the closer.

Self proclaimed wildlife expert? Sorry you had to go through this. I’ve hear of guys in the hunting and exotics biz in TX being harassed by animal rights people.

Bob,
You got that right. If anyone pulled anything like that when I was growing up he(they) got a real severe attitude adjustment. I like everything Clint Eastwood says. Brief and to the point. I think behavior needs to be recycled back to the 40s and 50s. I was going to say the 60s but everything went to hell in the 60s. I enlisted in 1960 and got out in 1964 and it was a whole different world---and not for the better.

I'm glad we have all these people that are smarter than us and don't mind sharing how we can make our dim lives better.

I for one don't know how I would exist without proper supervision.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
