Someone should remind "Elmer" that, as a general rule, guns and brewskis don't mix. :)

If you have not seen the full group of pictures that go with it- it is a hoot. That is a hot tub in a DEER STAND! The stand is maybe 1000 sq ft, leather chairs, hot tub, tv, windows on all sides to shhot... it is crazy! I will try to find a link to them.

I saw the beer in the foreground of the pic and I asked myself how many posts until someone high roaded it and pointed the beverage out. LOL All of four posts.

did ya ever think maybe, just freakin maybe the beer belongs to the photographer? Or maybe, just maybe it is put in the pic to draw a "oh no guns and beer " comment.

besides, beer don't really count as drinking.

Now that is hunting in style. Next time it's ten degrees and the sun hasn't come up yet I'll be dreaming of that setup. Booze and guns don't mix but neither do booze and hot tub.

there may be a couple things wrong with that picture but everything esle is soo right! the only water that I have encountered deer hunting has been extremely cold and I know that I would prefer a hot tub to a 40 degree lake.

Dude!

If my wife had my scoped rifle in the hot-tub with her like yours does in that picture I'd be hacked off.

ner and hot tubs work ok but guns as well nah.

I like a cold one in my tub and a good book.

I can't imagine that it is very comfortable dressing a deer while wearing only a Speedo.

Well the first thing I thought of was I wouldn't want to have my scoped rifle around so much moisture and humidity. My next thought was should you be wearing a camo bathing suit, just for the proper effect.

Hopefully he's wearing a bathing suit and not "commando":)

Well I'm going to go out on a limb here and say THAT is the stupidest remark that will make this thread.

Well, what can go wrong with drinking and guns? Seriously I would love someone to explain this to me :banghead::what::uhoh::confused::fire: idiots.......

Alcohol impaires ones ability to make correct decisions and impairs their judgment. Thus the reason DUI is illegal. Same thing goes for guns and alcohol. You or others may can handle a beer or two without your judgment being seriously impaired. Most people would not be DUI at that point. The problem occurs when the alcohol is consumed in excess and the wrong decisions get made.

I actually kind of thought it was funny...I was going to agree with him, until someone said it was stupid, so I decided to keep my mouth shut...Oh, wait!:p

I don't really see a problem with, especially in that situation,(pimp deer stand) someone having a beer or two...It's when you get into the teens and twenty's when the problems would arise.:)


I don't drink and shoot, I do however, drink sometimes and shoot sometimes and I don't see how having a beer or two would pose any problems.

Here, for those of you who seem to really be bothered by a beer in the neighborhood of a firearm.

No More Beer!

Lighten up it's a fun picture beer or not.

Funny pic, but I don't think that hot tub is at that deer stand. There is no room for it on the porch, and the wood doesn't seem to match anyway. Plus, from the pics, you can see that the porch has an overhang with supports, but the hot tub is open to the air, so I think they are two different places.

thank you illEagle for using your 'innernets' magic. Now can you digi-wipe Elmer and plant me and Lucy Pinder in there?!

Agreed. Too, the terrain in both pictures differ a lot.
It looks like Elmer is in the Mid-West while the big stilt house scenery looks like southern Ohio or WVA.

Wow, coming up on 2 days and this thread still not locked? Offending (to some) photo not even deleted. Moderators must be asleep (or maybe busy with other and better things to do.) Now might be the time to start a religion thread (if you were so inclined.)

Just to chime in with a story about hunting (or shooting) from a relaxed location.

I used to work at a gym where the president was pretty rich (he owned like 4 or 5 gyms). One of the IT guys had to go out to his mansion to do some work one day in early December. And he told this story.


As he is wiring something up, he suddenly hears BLAM! from upstairs. It turns out, the president would hunt from his second floor bedroom, in his bathrobe, from his bed. He would lay down on the bed and wait for deer to assemble at the back of his property (he owned acres and acres). Then he'd pick one off with a rifle. He was warm, had his breakfast sitting there, fresh coffee, the TV on to watch his stocks, etc. Then to top it all off- once he dropped a deer he would call on his cell to another worker to go out and fetch the deer.

I guess if you have enough property- you can hunt from your bedroom.... or jacuzzi. :D

beer and alcohol is a really great combo.

Ya I was being sarcastic and let me append to this:

It is a person's judgment call (like always) to know when they are affected by alcohol. I would feel fine after drinking one serving of alcohol (1 beer, 1 wine, or 1 shot) and shooting but after that I even refuse to drive let alone fire guns. But of course there is the "jaccuzi" thing that can accelerate alcohol effects due to dehydration but that is another subject.

Let's just be honest: we want to be that guy... or with that girl... or in that deerstand.... or off work... take any and run with it. Of course: your mileage may vary, some assembly required, and some pieces require fitting.

I'm kinda busy working 18 hour days here in Kuwait and what do I find?

Leave the girly Photoshop work for somewhere else.

Behave yourselves like you're on THR instead of endlesspuberty.com, wouldja?
