You're just guessing and coming up with new guesses when I refute your old ones. I see you ignored the fact that wolves can't see green. I'm sorry, but I'm not at all convinced by your claim that red-green color blindness is a hindrance to hunting. Let me know if you come across evidence to support what you're saying.

Is it a hindrance to hunt with green-red colorblindness? I don't know. I am not red/green color blind.

But, you can not hunt parrots, that's for sure. HA I AM OBVIOUSLY JOKING (I made parrots red, can you tell?)

Here I go clear on my thoughts, whether you disagree with me or not, that's fine by me...

-Humans can see *certain* things better than canines. Every animal/person is different, and for their own reasons.

-I like to see all the colors I can currently see. I can see wild plants and wild animals very well.

I DON"T KNOW IF ITS HARDER FOR HUMANS TO HUNT WITH RED-GREEN COLOR BLINDNESS.

You have problems with see red and green. That may or may not be an adaption for humans to survive better in certain places on the earth.

Heh, heh, I can certainly agree with all of that, though I don't think of my color blindness as "problems," probably because I've always had it and it seems natural to me, and it was neat to find out that scientists think it was actually an advantage for hunters. I think it's also more positive for me to think of it as an advantage rather than a problem.

Heh yeah. Whether people say its good or bad, you grown to live with it. And feel it is normal. Its prob like saying is brown skin better than tan skin. Or curly hair better than straight. blue or brown eyes. They all have there advantages and disadvantages in certain geographical regions in the world.


I have a little bow in my legs, is it not best? I don't know, but I live with it. That's another interesting topic.
I put my ankles together and my knees are separated by about a half an inch. My niece has bad bow legs. I blame it on putting them in these things at an early age

horrible, just like pacifiers

Although, nutrition affects the bow legs too I think.

My father has mildly bowed legs--though probably more bowed than yours based on your images--though those saucer things luckily hadn't been invented yet in his youth. Bowed legs have also been connected with deficiencies in one or more of zinc, vitamin D, and magnesium (www.ctds.info/magnesium.html, http://www.ctds.info/zinc1.html).

I also noticed that wild raspberries are smaller than domestic ones, and I found the wild ones to be less sweet and more tart than domestic ones, but that could be because of the soil. What about you?

Wild Maine blueberries are also less sweet than domestic ones, but I actually prefer the taste of the wild ones and they don't add a layer of scummy film to my teeth and white gunk along the gumline like domestic fruits do.

Yeah, definitely here too. The average wild raspberry is not as sweet or large as domesticated ones no matter the soil here in wisconsin.

The variable is human involvement, which can include messing with the soil. A neighbor has domesticated red raspberries in her yard and a few feet away wild black raspberries grow. Its about genetics mostly.

Fruit has been modified genetically through selective breeding. And faster ways with modern technology of who knows what methods.

Wild grapes vs domesticated grapes are even a bigger difference than wild vs dom. raspberries. Really big difference when it comes to grapes.

People can now make their fruit bigger, sweeter, sourer, smaller, change seed size, change seed amount. Change color, make hybrids, etc. In a very short period of time.

Fruit changes naturally in nature of course, over much longer periods of time. Its crazy how much they changed things in the past 100 years or even 50 years. Even in the past decade.

This is not just with fruit, vegetables, and animals too.

Which is why I like to get less domesticated grass fed bison (still has genes from wild ancestors) over the much domesticated grass fed cow. Even if frozen I prefer bison over beef.

Can't argue with native wild raw foods :)

Soil does definitely effects fruit though. But if dom. rasp. seeds are put in the same soil as wild rasp. seeds. The difference will still be there.

got this real quick, from my kitchen :)





Don't be confused by champagne grapes in the store

http://images.quickblogcast.com/115838-108114/P1050280x.JPG

they are breed to be small, and are very sweet, and no where near the taste of wild grapes, and they have virtually no seeds too

Yeah, I noticed that too. I tried champagne grapes and they were sickeningly sweet and even gave me some nausea, which surprised me. They affect me worse than regular grapes. I ended up throwing most of them out, which was a shame because they were expensive.

Hunting with a bow, brilliant. Wish there was something I could hunt with a bow.

Yeh maybe. I'm not sure if it's even legal to hunt rabbits here. Doesn't stop that guy eating squirrels in London though.

Josh, I though it was illegal to bow hunt any wild animal in the UK?

What's the draw weight Sully?
I picked up this recurve for my birthday last month but haven't had much chance to practice with it. Mine's a 50 pound draw weight. :)

I don't know the exact rules, but most huntings illegal unless it's controlling vermin, culling, or like pheasant shooting where they raise the birds.

There's one guy who's written a book who claims to have eaten squirrels and pigeons in London though.

I have no idea what its set at. I just called my neighbor (teenage kid), he doesn't know. He said you can tighten and loosen it.
Beats me. I know nothing about bows.

Yeah, the video gives a good way to test it. Judging by the size I doubt it's much more than 65 pounds which is still plenty of force to take anything down you want.
FWIW my wife's uncle told me I should have gone with the 40 pound draw choice for my bow after I showed it to him. 40 pounds will drop a deer just fine. I bought the 50 because I figured it'll hold it's arrow elevation farther.
