APS: You never did tell us who your "NEW HAMPSHIRE boy" is?
One guess "Butch". BTW...how are the little white teddy bears selling? (hehahahaa)
Pond hands Butch a cup of coffee: "Ya know Butch...you should stick to fishing; I don't know a damned thing about it." (humm..be willin' to learn tho)....................
Glad to see everyone is being kindly, and civil. Swapping information and education is never a bad thing.
"One guess "Butch"."
I take it by by putting my name in quotation marks that you're somehow implying that I'm from New Hampshire? Now THAT'S funny! It also shows how little you know about me, just as your earlier posts show how little you know of deer hunting and wildlife management. You should probably quit while you're behind.
BTW, you've been shown to be wrong about two things re: Maine hunting laws, and by thinking I'm from NH. Do you plan to admit to it as you said you would, or will you continue your ranting about things you know little of? (My money's on continued ranting...)
Oh, by all means enjoy the the coffee without me. I don't drink it but Matt might so you can invite him. And, feel free to order yourself a white teddy bear for Christmas. The mouse pads are nice too.
Me thinks this thread has just about run its course and may be ready for the archives. We have strayed again from the topic by a mile. Time for an end? Apondsong can start a new one about the poor coydogs and the ruthless hunters and make jokes (although no one seems to get them) about Butch. I see things about a hair away from getting to personal attacks anyway and Scott's gonna pull the plug if it's just wasting bandwidth. I guess I missed something because Butch is a pretty "outdoorsey" guy with a lot of experience and is also one of the last guys I would be playing games with. It doesn't make sense to me so something must have gone over my head.
maybe he meant VT, not NH. You back to ME?
Bigshooter, I think you're right about the thread. Check your PMs re: something totally different.
Matt, for some time now. Thought you knew...stop by when you're up my way again and we'll do lunch, minus the coffee.
Butch: You moved out of Maine; not me. Welcome back. Now, if I wanted to find out your personal information...I could do that easily enough. I truly couldn't care less; it's none of my business. I did say New Hampshire when I should have said Vermont...that was my mistake. Vermont.
How you approach people in your posts (civil and mature or not) is clear enough. And I would never have come down on you so hard about "deer-nudging" ( gotta admit tho...that is pretty funny) if you hadn't been so snarky in your comments. I gave you an out...and you just had to come back and be insulting...twice ! So.....consider it.
I made an attempt at calming down the dialogue. Your response was all about you. I'm not big on coffee...it was just a token of a truce. Hold on to the grudges if you wish; I've just set mine down. It's not worth it emotionally or Spiritually.
I'm not surprised that you don't believe that 3 hunters working together can place one of their number in position to get a clean shot at an unalarmed deer. In order to do that you have to know more about deer than that they are brown.
BTW - I don't attend hunters breakfasts until after I've taken my deer because I'm meticulous about scent control when I'm hunting, thanks to many years of archery hunting for deer.
Having born and brought up in Maine of parents and grandparents who were also born and brought up in Maine, is there any way I can actually stop being a "Mainer"? The story of the Downeaster (like me) asking the flatlander (like....?) if kittens being born in an oven are biscuits comes to mind....
Now let's just let this thread end gracefully...
Maine Lion and Butch: My grandfather and grandmother were great hunting enthsiasts; native Mainers. When I was a wee tike my bedtime stories were by Thorton W. Burgess. I believe I have every one of the set....all first editions. I grew up being in the woods whenever I got the chance. Too many a term paper or algebra assignment was left to the last minute; left to the wee hours of the morning, because I was out tramping the woods. Is that nature or nurture, or both ? I have no idea...but it seems like the outdoors was just IN me from the get-go. And I was lucky enough to have a parent that taught me respect for all animals and my rightfull place in hunting them. I was in my element and I knew it. It's true to this day. And I don't appreciate anybody being intentionally disrespectfull because they might disagree with something I hold as true and right. THAT is the bottom line. Some folks are born into a hard-knock life, and they do not know any other way to express themselves or to be for that matter. They have an excuse (to a point) as far as I'm concerned. But when you decide to make snarky comments, you demean yourself as well as the AMG thread. And I have no idea why you persist to do it You should be a better man than that...I believe. It puzzles me, frankly.
Sorry for the New Hampshire boy comment....or Vermont boy comment. I'm sorry for stooping to the level and direction you decided to pull the conversation I did myslef a grave diservice in giving it any attention.

Ha, you dropped your vizard and got caught flat footed. Exposed!
Well done Butch!
LOL ! as you wish andy....as you wish.....
Andy, you "piling up" the yotes this fall--you know, for the crows? Love that wanton waste!
