Saturday Is Hunting Day

During hunting season I usually go out 2 to 3 times a week, but Saturday is my early morning day. Right around 4 A.M. we get going. DSC00018This week I took my boy out for the first time chukar & quail hunting. He hasn’t had much training so it’s a bit difficult to get much going with him right now. He’s still a good dog and he’s got a hell of a nose. He wants to do well, he listens and learns fast not to mention he’s loyal as hell. We didn’t find much more than a jack-rabbit & some dove but that’s a good start for him. I hiked a good 4 miles as the crow flies, but it’s all up and down into gullies & creek beds, back up to the tops of hills and rocks. The poor mutt kept up the whole time. He acted like he was dying on the way home. But he is just a spoiled little brat when it comes down to it.

I’m kind of a camera slut when I go out into the mountains. I tend to take a lot of snapshots, so I have a few to show today. These are pics of the hills and surrounding areas outside of Dayton, Nevada’s south side open public lands. There are a few of Godzilla and myself in there as well. I’m not going to apologize either.

Access to these areas are on the back side of the Dayton Rodeo Arena if you are ever in the area and want to go see for yourself. As you can see, we like to park the car and walk/hike off the beaten path. When you stay on the main path, there is just too much that you don’t see. And that’s not why we do it.

One of the things that I find all too much anymore, and this pisses me off to no end, trash. Fucking people can be the filthiest, inconsiderate laziest assholes of all creatures sometimes. There is a certain type of human that happens to be the lowest form of them all. That would be the animal abusers and rapists. Just above them on that list are the slime sucking fucks who would drive a truckload of trash ten miles out into the mountains, in some cases an hour out of the way, dump a load of shit onto the pristine land then go home to their nice little home & not feel a bit of shame. Meanwhile, the land is just covered in the shit that they where to damn cheap to pay to go to the dump for. ASSHOLES.

I am sorry for the desert mountains & for the wildlife that has to live in that crap. But I will not apologize for the jerks who do this shit. They deserve worse than they get.

I am not one of those people who bitches about it then does nothing. While I’m out, I nearly always pick up shit, take it home and throw it away in my own trash can. I also pick up brass casings, for reloads or scrap value (my kids are the ones who profit from this) any time I find a pile of it lying around.

I can’t clean up the entire dessert alone, so I have chosen a type of trash to pick up. Mostly, I pick up shotgun shells, cans, & metal that has rusted and is out in the open for an animal or person to cut themself on. There is a bucket in my car for the shells, Damn if I had a dollar for every one of them. It’s not all I do but it’s what I do just about every time. Not much, but it’s something.

I don’t own a truck, so my Jeep is what I use. There are a few garbage bags at any givin time in the back though. I have been known to load the fucker with trash & shit and stink it the hell up. That sucks.

“Always take more out of the desert than you brought in.”

I’ve been cleaning up at the local firing ranges as well. It seems like these Gung Ho “2nd amendment advocates” or “Mericans” who care so much about their nation don’t seem to give a fuck about the land they leave their shit on.

I have spoken to a few folks at the Carson City Firing Range about maybe taking a day & let’s all get together to pick up some trash around the ranges. Big surprise, they all agree “it’s not my fault/problem”. More like they’re either just as lazy as the asshats who dump into the desert, or nothing is more important than “them”.

“It’s up to the people who make a mess to clean it up” they say. What a chicken shit cop-out.

I have been doing this for years now, this is the first & the last time you will ever hear a complaint about it from me. The next time you are at the firing ranges out here, think about this. We have to live with what we do.

People, clean up after yourselves dammit. Or don’t use the facilities.

I do not apologize.

It’s Wabbit Season (GRAPHIC)

Wabbit season has begun, so of course I went wabbit hunting. Here are a few of my favorites. But truthfully, the last one is from a couple of years ago.

As promised, this is a graphic post. Here is the most recent rabbit I killed right before butchering. the catchThis is a Black Tailed jack-rabbit from Dayton, Nevada. Now, I get a lot of shit about jackrabbits, and how you shouldn’t eat them. “That’s disgusting” they say. “They have diseases”. True, they are susceptible to disease. It’s just that you have to know what to look for before eating it. And know what you’re looking at.

Speaking of that, did you notice the wall in the back?

Those Damn Spiders

It’s Saturday and you know what that means.

Spider update time.

This week was kind of slow mainly because I only went out hunting once due to the smoke from that pesky King Fire over in Shitland California. That doesn’t stop the spiders from multiplying though.

Now bear in mind, this season is so awkward that even the recluse bastards are slightly out of season. We find then mostly inside, though I have found one out back underneath my pellet traps.

Drum roll please:

Black Widows: 0

Black Widow Killer Extraordinaire: 109 & counting

* * * * *

Brown Recluse: 0

Brown Recluse Killer Extraordinaire: 8

* * * * *

Shit Brown Spiders: 0

Shit Brown Spider Smashers: 12

* * * * *

Escapees: 11

(Update 9:45 P.M. got an escapee from last week, but 1 got away from me tonight. So the numbers kinda even out here)

* * * * *

New Category Vinegaroons: 0

Vinegaroon Smashers: 1

* * * * *

Now for the gallery. I apologize if there are any duplicates in here. As I mentioned before these photos are getting a bit hard to locate anymore.

Enjoy.

Yet Another Spider Update

I know we here at the Shitbagster estate post a lot of these updates during Black WidowFUCKING BITCH (19) season, but we are having an unusually large count this year. And the real season hasn’t even begun. Also it’s getting kind of difficult to find any Black Widow pictures that haven’t already been used before, or have a clear copyright on them. So without further ado, I give you todays numbers (as of Monday evening).

                                                  BLACK WIDOW KILLS: 83

BROWN RECLUSE KILLS: 6

SHIT BROWN SPIDER KILLS: 10

ESCAPEES: 11

FUCKING BITCH (9)We will eventually get those escapees, but to this date have not gotten one. We know where they are, though we have been busy killing all the other ones. The thing about Black Widows is they are willing to live in another, dead widows’ web. Which is why we find so many in the same spots as previous kills. As mentioned before, the season is approaching when they are normally active. That being the case, about half of the recent spiders have been very large. Probably from last years escapees. We’re also finding quite a few males as well, it being about that time of year to breed also.

The preceeding counts are true & accurate. With no added bullshit to “wow” you.
