    Hahaha, that's a good one. It reminds me of an event at which I was asked to speak many years ago, specifically to relay my adventures studying the grizzly bear in Glacier National Park and Alaska. It was attended by "professional people" in the field of medicine and education, and I could tell they were a bit nervous when I showed up. One of the docs confided in me later that "they were expecting a person with a plaid shirt, a beard, and a lumbering sort of gait." I was clean shaven, wore a jacket and tie, and spoke the King's English during my presentation. Stereotypes are not confined to religious or racial minorities regardless of what CNN will have you think.

    If you don't wear cowboy shoes, how can you know anything about ranching? If you don't wear "ovryhauls" with one strap hanging down, how can you know anything about farming?

    Yep.

    Tv has been pushing Lousiana, Alaska, hermitude, survival, prepping, doomsday stuff, rural/ southern living, guns etc. etc.

    Edit: I know, rural and southern aren't mutually exclusive.

    Yeah I go for the hunt, I only hunt my land nowadays and it's mostly for deer and turkey. Some guys need the kill to feel fulfilled I just need the game to show up where I believe they will, If I get a good shot I take it if not oh well.

    Last season I had a spot picked out for my blind and at the last minute gave it to my son, he killed an eight point and I was feeling very fulfilled cause he did all the work and paid for processing and I still got smokies and backstraps. :)
