    I'm sure it's a lot different in states that have otc tags and maybe no quota. Some states may just alot too many tags for an area creating too much pressure. If there are lots of deer most people...

    You are lucky to live in a state with healthy game populations. Oregon had that too 25-30 years ago, politics changed that in a damn hurry. I’m not trying to get off topic, I do think what other...

    As a 66 year old who makes a couple trips west each year, I can tell you that I still manage to find unpressured areas to hunt by hoofing it into the wilderness areas of Colorado, and the most rugged...

    There are a lot of area I used to hunt tha have little to no hunting pressure now compared to 25 years ago. The reason is there isn’t a good reason to hunt there anymore. Since we stopped logging...

    Good thread. Interesting reads.

    As much as the media likes to say hunting and hunters are decreasing, I find that hard to believe. So many more ways for hunters to connect and find spots to hunt...

    Many valid points here. The only thing I'd add is there's an additional 85 million people in this country now versus 1988, and some percentage of that constitutes big game hunters

    I'm just 39, I don't consider myself older just yet. That said it's not the years, it's the miles and I have my share of old man tendencies. I think we as hunters need to continue to adapt no...

    I will chime in on this one. I am 47 and I have been hunting since i was 5 years old.

    My dad and his buddies would farm us kids out to ranchers to work around the ranch so we could hunt. Now...

    'Good old days', past or present, will vary for each of us, depending on where we hunt, what we are hunting I think.

    Back to my Iowa pheasant example, the 'Good old days' are gone. Adios....

    I'm not going to disagree with Buzz's comments about what his Grandfather said because I never hunted anything but California until 1980. But the "good old days" in California were the 50's and...

    Heart is the only organ I will eat and it is fried at that. I did try it bacon wrapped and that turned out pretty good, just needed to go another 10 minutes in the oven. Growing up we HAD to eat...

    'CC,

    100% agree.

    I resemble that remark.

    Iowa pheasant hunting once was a really big deal out here. In my 15+ yrs of living here, I have watched it literally vaporize right before me...

    I honestly think we are spoiled as big-game hunters these days. So much opportunity you cant even come close to doing it all.

    All this crap about the "good old days"...is mostly that, crap.

    One thing to think about re: hunting numbers are down. This forum is mostly big game hunters and I really think their numbers have not decreased all that much (just my thoughts). I know waterfowl and...

    I'm only 30, but even I have seen the change. I agree with the previous reasons - mapping technologies, private lands being leased or locked up, better gear making hunting easier and more comfortable...

    You are right there. When I was young the deer season started the 3rd Sat in Sept and lasted until Oct 31.
