deer camp traditions
each deer camp has it's own traditions , weather from superstition or just outta fun .

when we get a beginner at our camp , you gotta show him the roaps . that includes the droppings along the trail .

there has to be snow on the ground for this one .

a deers trail , one guy distracts the " student" the other dumps some raisenetts on the trail . as the student comes up to the spot you say " deer poop , now we can find out how long ago he came thru here . pick some up , pop them in your mouth , chew and swallow .( make facial expressions that your really studying the taste ) then say something like , twenty minutes ago , he's a ten pointer about 195 lbs. the newcomer will be amaised !

then tell the rookie to try some so he'll learn how to track them , if there anything like the guys we've had the'll decline the offer in a big way . you will become some sort of hunting expert to them , unquestionable when it comes to deer hunting .

if they do sample the stuff , it takes them a couple seconds to catch on to the taste , and the joke .

we are well versed in this deercamp prank .

what do you guys have or do to make your deercamp a special thing ?

i know what you mean about talking to the people here more mare , i got one pal downstate that i owe my life too , we see each other once a year or so . got another pal thats gonna see his maker soon , he got the big "c" .

i got the people i work with , but ya get to the point where you gotta figure that your always helping them out and they never stop by just for a visit , well ya just feel like your being used . i don't mind helping them with what i can do , but just a visit would be better than calling me up just to fix somthing or other , ya know what i mean ?

here at the boards , well everyone dosen't always agree with what i say , but that don't stop em from talking to me or speaking there piece in a friendly manner . you can count on a body being here somewheres on the boards most all the time to chew the fat with . in my book , that ain't all bad . got me some pals on the boards .
