I hunted for years, then about 15 years ago I quit. It's not an animal rights thing, growing up on a farm, I believe every animal has the right to be food. I just got tired of it. About 5 years ago I got the itch to go again, but didn't want the hassles that go along with gun hunting,I realized I missed the hunt, not the kill. I started hunting again, but this time with a camera. I still get my trophy and I don't have some big dead thing to clean up. It also opens up a lot of "hunting" land that wouldn't be available to a gun hunter. Here's a couple of my tophies.
Here's my first camera hunt buck. The picture was taken in Germantown Maryland at a distance of about 75 yards:
This 6 point was actually in my back yard at about 60 yards:
I use to fish constantly back in Louisiana, but I haven't in a long time. I loved fly fishing and we have some good places here in North Carolina, but I just haven't been. I may try to do some this spring.
