Top Ten Reasons Why Bird Hunting is Better than Deer Hunting
I love to eat venison. There is no better meat on the planet than a whitetail deer’s tenderloin. That being said, I’ve never really enjoyed deer hunting. When deer season opens in Minnesota each November, I travel to a different state to chase birds. There is no doubt all of you deer hunters are going to blast me for today’s blog, but at least try and crack a grin.
Without further adieu, here are the “official unofficial” Top Ten Reasons Why Bird Hunting is Better than Deer Hunting (drum roll):
10. Sitting in a blind all day is BORING!
9. Hitting a flying bird takes more skill than shooting a buck while it eats apples at your bait pile.
8. Deer camp smells like farts and stale beer.
7. If you can sleep, read a book or listen to your iPod while you’re “hunting” . . . you are a deer hunter.
6. Bird hunters avoid being sprayed by skunks. Deer hunters pay for bottles of skunk spray they apply all over their bodies.
5. Deer camp poker is never as much fun as pheasant camp euchre.
4. If you have a heater AND television in your blind . . . you are a deer hunter.
3. Bird season lasts three months. Deer season lasts only two weeks.
2. If you spray yourself with urine from another animal . . . you are a deer hunter.
And the number one reason why bird hunting is better than deer hunting:
1. Chicks dig bird dogs.
Now, if you have a venison backstrap in the freezer with my name on it, I’ll take back everything I’ve said!
