give me an example1 CF for one hunting has a lot more action to it HZ Youre saying that fishing is relatively slow in comparison to hunting0 CF No doubt about it this morning I sat in a bobbing up and down like a for nearly an hour before 1 got a When 1 hauled it in it was only a fourpound bass And half of that was guts and bone HZ 1 suppose an hour is a long time to wait By the let me congratulate you on the tenpoint buck you bagged in Wyoming CF Thanks you talk about action That was pure excitement HZ Tell me about it CF You 1 had scouted this ranch or a couple of days before the season opened 1 discovered a band of bucks in the hills and they had a trail leading down to an alfalfa field about half way down the hill was a big pile of boulders I positioned myself among them where 1 could see the trail without being seen HZ suppose you got your buck in short order Quick so to speak CF Not exactly Just before opening morning the rut started The bucks were fooling around with the does and

little gray light was peeking over the a fog rolled in That soup was so thick you couldnt find your butt with both hands HZ So you waited until the fog lifted to take vour elk CF One thing for I wasnt going anywhere in that 1 sat back against a tree and took it easy It wasnt more than ten minutes until 1 heard this snort 1 looked up and there was this huge black hulk coming straight toward me through a fog so thick you couldnt cut it with a knife 1 barely had time to jerk up my gun and fire from the Got him right in the I was lucky that buck didnt trample HZ I can understand how you prefer your quarry out in the open rather than hidden could you give me one last contrast between hunting and fishing CF You Fishings too Costs a lot more than HZ For instance CF Yesterday a feller told me he paid for a used Now thats big Not to mention those big boxes fulfof baits and They dont give away those rods and HZ So youre saying that hunting doesnt require such a large capital I understand you
