Hunting / Re: Deer meat for dinner or Meat Eater

You gotta pull that off sooner.  It should be medium rare.

Especially since it's been really dry, the deer are going to move out of the hunting areas and closer to the safety zones, nearer to Lanai city, and the wetter areas in the middle of the island.

Hunting / Re: How to prepare harvested meat?
« on: January 27, 2022, 05:00:46 PM »
May be a thread on this already, but how do you prepare harvested pig or deer or dove or quail…?
I tried my own pig and deer (deer from a friend) and it was interesting.
Wondering about marinades, rubs and recipes.

Cooking deer is going to be very different from wild pig.  Axis Deer is very lean.  For Deer, you should treat it like either lamb or grass fed beef.  If you are making steaks or roasts, cook it medium rare.  You can also do the low and slow method like braising (or crockpot), using the shoulder cuts.  A lot of people grind up the deer for chili, or you can add commercial pork fat the the ground deer to make burgers.  You can also slice it thin and make teriyaki.
Looking for a good person to go to for sharpening knives. Any suggestions?

Any pictures of the knives you want sharpened?  Are they kitchen, hunting, or edc blades?  Any strange shapes?  What types of grinds do you need.  I sharpen a ton of knives for family and friends.

And check the case length requirement for pistols without dogs.
Not sure even a 45 acp meets the requirement.

No it does not meet the requirements.

(C) Straight-wall cartridge ammunition shall be 357 caliber or larger with a minimum
case length of one and one-fourth (1 1/4) inches (Exceptions: The 10 mm auto
mag and 45 win mag cartridges are allowed despite their shorter case length).

No Glock 17 or 19 unless you switch to a 5in barrel!

9mm not allowed for hunting without a dog, even out of a 5 inch barrel.

I completed an online hunting course this weekend, and noticed a few topics they did not cover. Here are the questions:

1. How do dogs tolerate loud gunfire, while humans need to wear ear protection?

2. Lifting, dressing and carrying a dead carcass can strain the back. In fact, back spasms are a common result of anything strenuous, or using motion that you ordinarily would not employ in daily life. Bringing a heat pad into the woods seems to be impractical. The course never discusses this type of injury.

3. Who carries an emergency locator beacon, and do you need one in HI?

4. Is there a one weapon limit on state/federal hunting grounds? Wouldn't a compound bow put you at risk of being overrun by a wild boar? This video raises a lot of questions about boar hunting. Long arms are used, with bad muzzle control very apparent at certain times.

1.  While a few dogs can naturally tolerate gunfire, that is not most dogs.  I have 3 bird dogs and all of them had to be taught (conditioned) to tolerate gunfire and loud noises.
2.  A)  Get in shape before you go hunting.  Walk with a weighted backpack and do squats.  B) De-bone the animal in the field.  I don't know why people carry out the whole carcass.  If you de-bone in the field, you are only carrying out 25-30% of the overall weight.  And C)  Take your time carrying it out.  Hydrate often and rest as needed.
3)  Don't hunt alone.  If you absolutely must hunt alone, make sure people know where you are going and don't take crazy risks.
4)  yes.  The proximity exception was mentioned earlier.

I agree, for all around go 17 or 19.  The 48 is a single stack so it is s much more slim and was designed to conceal carry.  The one caveat I have here, is that if you do have small hands, maybe you would like the single stack like the 48 versus a double stack like the 17 or 19.

My first question is what is the purpose for this gun?  Are you looking at carrying at home?  (go with the glock 43x or 48)   Are you wanting an all-around gun?  (glock 19)  Is it just going to be used at the range?  (glock 17) Are you wanting to target practice? (glock 34).

I've made burgers with the mouflon from Lanai. I mixed it in with commercial pork fat and ground pork.  Also added some Moroccan seasonings and feta cheese crumbles before forming the burgers.  Cooked the burgers and served them with lettuce, tomato, and greek yogurt on a bun.  Very yummy.

On Oahu, bird hunting without a dog is called hiking.  You gotta either get a dog, or make friends with someone who has a dog.

Has anyone here ever pig hunted at Poamoho?  Is it worth the effort to get a permit?  are there pigs there?

I would personally choose four fifteen minutes sessions over a one hour sessions any day.

You can reinforce positive behavior with many things.  Some people use treats, some use praise, and some use toys.  Someone I know trains bomb sniffing dogs with a tennis ball.  Brittanys are sporting dogs that hunt for their masters, their demeanor is they want to please us.  Praise from their master goes a long way in training.  could I use treats?  Yes, however I don't want to always have treats with me.  When you are hunting in the field, your dog is off leash 30-60 yards away from you, they need to obey your verbal or whistle commands, i don't want them ignoring me because I don't have treats in my pocket.

Pavlov wasn't a dog trainer.  He was eliciting a physical response to a stimulus.  Bell rings and dog gets a treat, Repeat a bunch of times.  After a while, the bell rings and the dog starts to drool because his brain is conditioned to receiving a treat after the bell rings.  I don't want to teach my dog to drool.

Posting an article from doesn't really convince me of anything.  Like anything on the internet, we could both probably post hundreds of articles to back up both of our sides.  I was just sharing my experience of training the brittanys that I have owned, trained, and hunted over.

Flapp, I would like to respectfully disagree.  Dogs have short attention spans.  The maximum training session should be about 15 minutes.  Keep it short and fun.  Lots of positive praise.  I train my brittanys with praise, not treats, that way they do what I want all the time, and not just when I have treats.  I don't differentiate between training, going on walks, hunting, or playtime, they are all fun times that my dogs look forward to.
Brystont1 pm me your contact info.  I got some good dog training books

Puppies have a very short attention span, they like a lot of different activities.  My brittanys don't like to retrieve a ball, but they love retrieving a bumper with a couple of pheasant scent drops on them.  Pheasant feathers on a fishing pole are great play tool as well.  Your puppy shouldn't be going out for walks at that young age, unless you are absolutely certain that there haven't been other dogs there.  She hasn't gotten all of her parvo shots.  Parvo can survive 6 months on grass.  That being said, a long leash lets her run and explore, if you know of an area that hasn't had other dogs
