Somewhat plagiarized from a post on FB but I thought I was only one thinking this way. I love technology, and online check in is so convenient, but I miss going to ck in a deer kill and the chance to see others and spend time talking chit for a while with the other hunters and owners of sporting shop or eatery where you ck it. Again, as is often said, much of the loss of the attraction of hunting is no more the typical group hunt for most, no interaction except on social media of deer taken, and half that is derogatory, no fun harassing of other hunters and their misses or sometimes jokingly kidding of the bambi they shot. I guess it allows us all to be more politically correct but I do miss that trip to the station. I've used the same processor for 30 years. Have taken in deer late at night to drop off while their newborn lay in a crib in the shop, and watched that same baby girl grow up and take over the establishment. These late night rendezvous weren't quick, but time spent catching up on the past year of family life, and how the butcher business was going, and maybe a look at the cooler full of decent bucks. Maybe, just maybe its not the long seasons, or the crossbow, or the high dollar hunting sheds that allow us to take a 4 yo to take their first deer that is the savior of hunting among the masses. Maybe bringing back that interaction with each other in a non condescending way of social media comments that just might be our saving grace? Or perhaps.... we are too late??
