    Just for the record, I am arguing for technology. Old Hunter is arguing against it.

    I'm saying it doesn't make you a better hunter. I'm not arguing against it.

    I'm not even arguing. Just giving my opinion.

    I still think technology has made me a much better hunter.

    Haven't you ever used Google Earth to look at your hunting areas?

    I looked at Google Earth, but I could get the same thing from a map. Google Earth makes it easier, but does that make you a better hunter? It can all be done the old way of getting your boots dirty.

    We have a different outlook on hunting. Neither way is better. They're just different. I've explained how my dad taught me to hunt. Easy is never the way for my dad, and it isn't for me either. It's hard for me to put in words. It took years for me to learn, and I can't explain it in a post.

    I wish I could write better. I'd write a book.

    Never say "the end" to an old guy.

    I didn't realize we had so many fans.

    Seems like everyone is making this into a bigger deal than it actually is.

    I am another "old hunter"! I've been hunting big game (started with deer) for 60 years. Guess thats why I'm a better deer hunter than anything else. When I look at some new country, I just get this "feeling" where the deer are going to be. Yep....boots on the ground and seeing it live. Lots of the newer technology is great. I have and use a great range finder even tho I can guestimate ranges really good. I have and use my chronograph when I work on my new reloads. My new rainwear and hunting clothes are lots better than what I used to use, but nothing IMHO beats my old GI canteen and webbelt. Todays new boots are the best (I have several pairs), but I still wear my 30 year old Browning all leather, waterproof, vibrim soled boots, been resoled 4 times and repaired too many times to remember.

    Us old farts are set in our ways...thay work for use. Hard to change that. I don't do social media or text on my phone. The only reason I changed my reloads in my 30-06 is I ran out of the surplus 4895 powder I've been using for 50 years. I prefer Sierra & Nosler bullets I've used forever. When I was the Director of Production Research Engineering at a large aerospace co. before I retired, I used to tell my people "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
