You know why I can repeatedly year after year bring in the big scores? because I put in the big effort and go where no one else is going. I walked past 6 tree stands within 1 km from the road I leave my truck... Laziness. How are you going to get anything good when you are in shouting distance of 5 other people. You know why I was able to see a Mountain Lion? because once again I go where no one else goes, I put in the effort. Now on the other hand. To each their own and I couldn't care less what other people do but it sure is something to laugh at....... Props to the stalkers
    Hiking 10 to 20 km with a rabbit in your pocket. That means 10 to 20 km back with a bear on your back since that's where all the good game is. Oh by the way where is the picture to that bear you where hunting? Good story however credible? Too hard to swallow.

    Line from a book I read in school keeps running through my head.
    Gee George tell me about the rabbits

The is a difference between hunting and baiting. All I am saying, putting corn in a feeder once a week for 4 months is not hunting.
    Because thats the only way people hunt in Ontario....

    Laugh. Out. Loud.

    DA,

    You first post is an edited photo on a thread dead for over 2 years. Add in that you are an admitted outsider and insult an entire group of Ontario hunters. What did you expect? A pat on the back?

    Bring a compass. It's awkward when you have to eat your friends.

    lots of laughs'

    I would like to point out that using a live rabbit as bait/decoy by cutting it to make it bleed or injuring it to make it squeal, whether captive or a wild rabbit is a Criminal Offence. I'm not accusing someone on the forum of anything but simply adding this in case there are any hunters reading this that think this would be a great idea. Negative.

    I think the hunting trip in question more likely occurred in grandma's basement.

    Using a Quad??? Your a wimp glad to see you admit it. My Uncles and grandfathers didn't have a quad nor do I when I was younger.

    I believe it's entirely possible that cougars are in Ontario, or more accurately I am not so arrogant to proclaim that they can't be here because I've never seen one....

    I'm just not sure about the beaver dam perched on a steep hillside....😜
