Title: Who would you hunt with?
Post by: ethan on January 26, 2007, 04:26:00 AM
I was bored at work tonight and got to thinking of all the bow hunters past and present I'd love to hunt with.  So name three hunters, past or present, you'd like to share a remote camp with for a week or so.

John Rook(he's blind), Biggie Hoffman(he's, ummm, Big! and he takes a joke), and Ed Ashby(He's killed more game than anyone I can imagine with a bow). All three for distinctly different reasons and completely different personalities. They are all so distinct in their composition. All three great hunters who all have heart! CK

I'd like to have one more hunt with my dad, (he's laid-up in an old folks home and only gets to hunt in his mind these days); 2. the brother I never had. 3. Finally, based upon the message delivered in the movie called Primal Dreams, I'd like to have the privilege of hunting with the Wensel brothers.  Their concept of only taking of the excess of the land sits well in my soul.

1.My Father  (Passed away when I was 9)
This post just reminded me.

  I do remember him taking me coon hunting one night once with my stopper gun, I was probably 5-6 yrs old....
WOW ! Thanks For the memory!   :thumbsup:  

 
 
Wensel brothers or Fred Eichler  either of these would be awesome!!!!

My father who I took on his last hunting trip before he passed in 1981. My brother who I look forward to sharing camp with every year. Ted Nugent, even though he hunts with wheels, I would love to share camp with him.

1. My dad cause we have never took a hunting trip together YET  2. Norm Blaker and  3. Ron LaClair because I have always looked up to these guys ever since I saw them shoot ASPRIN out of the air at an outdoor fair in Houghton Lake Michigan when I was just a young kid.  That is a great memory from my childhood.

Well if you hunt with either the Westvang's or the Otto's, you'll eat good. I'd like to sit around a fire and listen to Torges and the Wensel's carry on a conversation. I have shared a fire with many others here, including John Rook (Even though it wasn't during a hunt) and I'm better off for it. A hunt would be great.

Well, I am reading Fred Bear’s field notes (3rd time) so I would say Fred and Glen St Charles with out batting an eye. I hunted the Brooks Range last year, which was an area Glen hunted in I think 1957 just before the Little Delta hunt.

My grandfather never shot a deer but always wanted to. I would have loved to take him along to deer camp with my dad, uncle and cousins. I joined my uncles annual/biannual (depends) deer camp about 5 years ago. Our grandfather died in 1991, I started bow hunting in 1996 and harvested my first deer in 1998. He would have been proud of me and he would be glad to see us keeping the family tight by our deer camp reunions.

I have a couple other good hunting partners now. My friend Bob Tastsides (Yeager on LW) and I hunt together a lot. Fred Kasch is a guy I would like to hunt with more, I think it is basically up to me and my invitations. Fred is 93 or 94 now and a great guy, in great shape. We hunted in 2005 and I harvested my first Trad deer. Last year was a good hunting year but for some reason we did not hunt together. I hope we get our signals straight this year so we can have a few hunts together.

I have posted this picture before but I want to share my buddy Fred w/you:
  (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v636/bfisherman11/th_3Amigos2.jpg) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v636/bfisherman11/3Amigos2.jpg)

The one hunting buddy, I forgot to also mention is my dog Robbie. Typically, he goes to my place in WI when ever I hunt, so he is someone I like to hunt with too... LOL he sits at camp, does not get out much.
  (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v636/bfisherman11/th_Robbie1.jpg) (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v636/bfisherman11/Robbie1.jpg)

Long answer but Mr Bear and Mr St Charles are at the TOP of my wish list. Would have been tough to make the 1957-58 Little Delta hunts and the 1959 hunt I was 3 months old.....    ;)    

Based on that and that they already had a "Bill Wright" on that hunt, I am not sure I could have gone.    :D    

Regards,
Bill

Anyone who can appreciate the hunt for what it is and enjoy all the aspects that are involved.  I treasure ethics, a positive outlook, an appreciation of game we are after and the country we are in.
Most Trad Gangers qualify, and I would love to hunt with as many as I can!

It's kind of hard to narrow down but I am like BillW, Glenn St.Charles and Fred Bear are definates.  I have some good friends, including my father, whom I love sharing a camp with.  But Paul Schafer, Jay Massey, Art Young, Monty Browning, just to name a few.  I guess it would depend on the day.

Why dream? Tomorrow's legends are here now. Get out there and hunt with as many as you can. I have hunted with at least 50 members of TG and will add a couple more to the list tomorrow morning at a southern Iowa rabbit hunt. Who's to say whether the next "I knew him when..." is not Mr Vic, Littlefeather, Wingnut, Charlie Lamb or the yet to register TG member nuber 12,000?

Title: Re: Who would you hunt with?
Post by: Budog56 on January 26, 2007, 11:30:00 AM
To name three for me would be impossible. There are so many that come to mind. My Dad and my hunting buddy since birth steve are the two I would say If I had to but after that it is very tough. Fred Bear, Paul Schafer, Wensels, Steve H,Charlie Lamb, Guru, Terry Green,8th Dwarf.......I guess since I dont have enough room to type everyone on tradgangs name ill just use those dots to replace all the names I havent mentioned yet,and many more that I can think of. I also agree with Nakohe Ted Nugent might make for a fun hunt.
Title: Re: Who would you hunt with?
Post by: crittergitter on January 26, 2007, 12:38:00 PM
If it were family it would be my grandfather who passed away several years ago, my father and my two sons.

If it were TG members well thats a tough one but three just off the top of my head would be:

MikeG, Littlefeather (CK) and Guru, just because I really like what these guys are made of. You can see it in the things they write and the way they speak of others. Especially when the topic turns to family. What they write in these forums is who they are.

But by no means is that the only 3, there are many here that I would love to spend time with around a campfire   :campfire:  or at a table so that I could walk away and call them my friend.

This is really hard... but I would have to say

1) Curtis Kellar (when I move back down to Texas this Year), Terry Green, Charlie Lamb
2) Fred Bear, Saxon Pope, Ishi
3) Ted Nugent, Barry/Gene Wensel, Fred Elchler


I know you asked for just 3 ppl, but like I said that's hard. PLus there is so many Members on here I would like to hunt/camp with too...Hell just pick anyone from the board I'll be happy to hunt with them..
Title: Re: Who would you hunt with?
Post by: NDTerminator on January 26, 2007, 01:21:00 PM
Of living bowhunters, I would like to hunt with Barry Wensel, Chuck Adams, and Uncle Ted.

From reading Barry's posts here, articles over the years, and seeing him in videos it's clear to me he would be a plain hoot to share a campfire with. I could learn a ton from him at the same time.

It's a fair assessment that few people know more about bowhunting & archery than Chuck Adams.  Again, a guy could learn a ton from him.

I was ND State Director for Ted Nugent United Sportsmen Of America for 10 years.  In that time, I got to know The Nuge fairly well, but we never got around to hunting together.  Controversial? Yep.  Shoots from the lip? No question.  But also dedicated to the sport, passionate,knowledgeable, and fun to hang with?  Take it from me, you'll be hard pressed to find another like him.

In regard to those who have passed, I have to include some that weren't primarily or only bowhunters.  The list would be Teddy Roosevelt, Peter Capstick, Davey Crockett, and Paul Schaefer...
Title: Re: Who would you hunt with?
Post by: V I Archer on January 26, 2007, 01:32:00 PM
Hard to pick only three but I'll have to say
Paul Schafer
Paul Brunner (I hear he's quite the cook!)
Don Thomas, deffinetly one of my favourite writers

Of course it would also be nice to share company with the likes of the Wensel Brothers, Monty Browning, Howard Hill, Fred Bear, Earl Hoyt, Pope and Young, Aldo Leopold, Glen St. Charles, Dennis Kamstra, and many many others
Title: Re: Who would you hunt with?
Post by: ChuckC on January 26, 2007, 01:38:00 PM
Too many to choose from.  Of course I would go with my current buddies, but I am going with them anyway and I thank the Gods for such friends.  

I would, in this life time, also like to meet and hunt with many others of like mind, and mostly that means TradGangers.  

Some of you have more credentials, face it...everybody knows the Wensels, and Too short, and Biggie and Curtiss...and... and... Of course it would be neat to get to know them all better.  I envy those that actually get this opportunity.  

But for every one of them, there are a hundred just like me, who, like me, are known by only a handful of people. I think there would be a ton of knowledge and comaraderie passed if more campfires were shared.  This appears to be happening more and more lately, spontaneous hunts springing up.  I think this is a good thing.

VERY hard to choose only 3 but here goes:

 Vernon McClanahan. He kept me in the woods or on the water thru all my teen years. He's been gone for 26 years now but I still think of him often and all the times we had. I owe him lot's.

 My son who's a senior in HS now and has everything else on his mind but, I'm sure he'll get back to huntin' with dad someday.

 My cousin Jay aka 'jdc'. We live in different states but hunt together as often as possible.

My father so he could see what bowhunting really is.  

  The guy I have hunted with for the last 3 years. Charles is an excellent hunter and one who gives up far more tha  he takes. Example. 2 years ago I got deathly ill during elk season and couldn't hunt the rest of bow season. It just so happened I had a sheep tag(ewe) but was far 2 weak to do it myself. After trying several times with a bow, Charles and I went out with a rifle( my fathers faithful 30-06 my only rifle) and I got my sheep. He knew how weak my legs were and after dicing her up he thru it in his pack and said here is my coat and my rifle I'll meet you at the river( about a mile below us) and off he went. He wouldn't even take any sheep meat and I know he loves it as much as I do.
   

  After that it is Dan Toelke. I hunted with him last season and would do it again in a NY second.

2. My sons who I hunt with often, but never feel like I get to spend enough time.
3. My grandchildern who are all a little young right now, but I am looking forward to sharing this trad experience with each one of them and hope that it somehow sticks.

Yeah, I'm having big trouble narrowing it down as well.  

I'll go for alive and dead to make it easier :-)

Alive:  

1.  Ron La Clair (there would be a canoe involved)
2.  The Wensel Brothers, I would just hope some of that deer mojo would rub off on my clothes or something
3.  Any Tradganger kind enough to take a newbie like me under their wing.

Dead:

1.  My grandfather, for sure -- he hunted to feed his family through most of his early years and I would love to have been there, bow or no.

2.  Ishi -- I figure a couple years or so with him in the woods I'd probably start to get a clue.

3.  Howard Hill -- cuz, well, he's H.H. LOL

Since Curtis and ChuckC are the only ones that want to hunt with me, I hereby extend the inviattion to come hunt with me on my place in south Florida. Oughta sound good about now to a Wisconsin boy :-) It's 70 degrees  down there right now.

I'll pick you guys up at the airpport and take care of everything after that. 2 or 3 days killing hogs and eating southern cooking. We'll get Marty McMahon to come and keep us entertained. He's a riot and cooks like a chef.

Now aren't the rest of you guys sorry you didn't say you wanted to hunt with me? :-)

Not for nothing, Biggie, but I think most of us listed TradGangers as well. So...in essence,we did say we wanted to hunt with you.Ergo, I think you can expect roughly 10,000 folks to accept your invite.  :bigsmyl:

The first 2 people come to mind very quickly for me. They are my Father who has past away 11 years ago, my son Andrew who will be old enough to hunt next season and because he and my Father never had a chance to meet.

I suppose the third person that I would like to share a hunting trip with would be my friend Paul. Even though he shoots a cross bow because of medical reasons. He used to shoot all sorts of bows when he could still draw them. Paul took me under his wing after my Father passed away and has taught me a lot about deer hunting and learning about the outdoors. He has killed more deer than anyone that I know or have known.

My Grandfather. He was born and raised in Michigans UP back when it was REAL wilderness, and he lied about his age to get into WWI at 16. He was a true woodsman and taught me so much in the short time I knew him. He died when I was 13, but I spent summers with him from about age 9 until then.I still carry his knife. He defined "Man" for me.

Biggie...Thank you !   SOMEDAY I would love to take you up on an invite like that.  Chasing hogs and eating southern vittles sounds awful good right now.  I am currently at work in Romania and probably won't be able to free up the time real soon however.  I haven't killed a hog yet and would love to someday.  Oh well..

Some day....  invitation goes both ways ya know.  I have no wonderful property of my own, but I have spots for "up north" whitetail deer.

Just found this awesome post and I'll readily admit that I didn't read all posts (yet).  While I would truly enjoy hunting with many of the past and present legends of our sport, I believe I would choose to spend 3 full days hunting with 3 individual anti-hunters.  I'd love to have them experience a long, quiet walk in the dark and a peaceful, expectant sit awaiting daybreak.  I'd enjoy seeing the look of wonder on their face while hearing and seeing the magic of mother nature springing alive all around them.  An informational Q&A conversation around a campfire lunch would be sweet.  Next, a sunny, yet cool, afternoon walk through the Michigan forest and a restful sit until dusk just might help motivate a spiritual change of heart.  I'd most likely pass or intentionally miss any shot opportunity for good measure.  Ending each day with some good venison jerky, a not-so-short glass of bourbon and a farewell handshake or hug would bring a warm smile to my face and heart.  I'd most assuredly take sufficient time to reflect on each encounter while savoring my second glass of bourbon.

1. Definitely my grandpa. He and my dad were the ones who introduced me to hunting, and since dad usually had to work on week days, grandpa was always the one waiting in the driveway at home when I got off the bus. I killed my first deer with him, and I'm extremely thankful for that since he passed away the following spring.

2. Fred Eichler. I love his shows, and he seems so genuinely excited about everything, whether it's a monster buck or a doe. He just seems like he would be a fun guy to be around, and all the people I've talked to that have met him say the same thing.

3. Fred Bear. Who wouldn't? If I could be even more specific, it would be on his Little Delta hunts. (That way I can kill multiple birds with one stone, since Glenn St. Charles would be there too. :thumbsup: )

Damfino! I'm not sure I could find three willing to hunt with me. But I'll try.

1. Gregg Dudley - I met him years ago when I first drove down to TBOF events, and we have been friends since

2. Biggie Hoffman - he lives just up the road a few miles, and he's a pretty fair archer and a nice guy

3. Steve Turay - a nice guy who shoots well, makes great bows, and he appreciates fine Scotch

Don Thomas and Jay Campbell. I blame / credit their writing for my return to traditional equipment.

Marty (Akdd) Rinke. He has been gone almost 2 years now, and his generosity made my lifelong dream of hunting Kodiak Island happen.

My uncle Leon. Now in assisted living and has severe Alzheimer’s. He was my first bow hunting partner 42 years ago. When his health took away his ability to hunt or shoot he gave me the Damon Howatt Hunter he carried into the woods hunting with me so many years ago.

My Dad because I miss him, bless his heart he was a terrible hunter but he could kill, you had to put him where he needed to be.

 Paul Schafer because I think he is one of the greatest true hunters that has ever been and nearly super human as well as a humble guy.

I'm thinking maybe Kevin Dill, because we share a lot of the same philosophy's and experiences. But we both tend to hunt alone so that could be problematic.
