    Re: Taking a chance

    My experience hunting with someone I met on this site didnít go so well but I can see why he might not have the greatest feelings towards me. I did get pretty sick on our first hunt together in mid November, and then on the second hunt the following September I rolled my ankle pretty badly on day 2.

    With all that being said, bring your own vehicle and go for it. Thereís nothing like being 12 hours from home and even with a twisted ankle you want to stay, if your partner wants to bail and heís your ride... it was a long drive home.

    The older I get the more I enjoy hunting alone.

    Mostly because I'm liking people less and less......

    Oh that sucks! That would be a long ride home for sure.

    Oh wow man that would be horrible! I enjoy my beers after a good day of hunting. Drugs arent my thing so I'd be with you heading home.

    Don't get me wrong...I think you should go for it!

    I'm just speaking from my own experiences.

    Lol ... that's funny because he's the one I met up with as well and with whom it didnt work out.

    We went on 3-4 outings and I think our ideas of how we want to approach the game differ ... but he is a very nice guy!
