Know the problem. 20 plus years ago Squirrels could not be hunted in my county. I got that changed with a court challenge the F&G dropped it ASAP. it seems the county F&G commissioner for 30 plus years liked to feed the varmints.

SE what we have to deal with in the live or Die state? NO actual public owned ranges at all after taking 90 plus years of our taxes meant for that and conservation.

Don't believe the TV show. They have control of what is seen.

I feel your pain. At least up here if you are 100 yards from your neighbors house you can just go out back and shoot. Still have game laws, but I can hone my skills right in the back 40.
How tight are the shooting laws out there?

On your own land, no problem if safe, meaning backstop. Woods are not a backstop as it should be.

I have a range in my yard and a sandpit in a 5 minute drive. We shoot From 22 and BP to NFA on both. But the average shooter does not own there own range. Because I have mine does not stop my complaints to the state.

  • Spence10 Said:
Around here in early 20th century a lot of country fellows did what was called noodling. They got into the creek and felt along the bank underwater, around all the roots, rocks and such, and caught a lot of things with their bare hands, big catfish and buffalo, snapping turtles. I presume it was what Ames was describing when he said, "we free handed them from the creeks." I wonder if it is still being done, today.

In southern Indiana, near Friendship, there is a tradition of Sunday dinners at churches. Never a need to cook on Sunday. Food was great and reasonably priced. A staple at those dinners was turtle soup. Very delicious. Men caught the turtles by 'noodling'. I was invited to participate several times but declined because I am very attached to my fingers. But, that is the way it was done. BTW, there is also a mock turtle soup they occasionally served. Very good also.

There are at least a dozen states where noodling is legal. It’s thought of as a southern thing but I know it was once legal in Wisconsin

I used to play a five string. I don't anymore. So I don't really have the need for all my fingers as much as I used to.
