Re: How to tell Buck from Doe just by eating their dropings
I had sort of an opposite upbringing. My dad taught me all the woods lore he knew, which was a lot. I'm the tomboy I am because of that. He protected me from jokes and tricks of others who went hunting with us. I learned tracking from him during many, many outings. Lots of time without a gun and out of season. he started me with a .22 single shot on rabbits and squirrels. Snow days were the best. All the tracks. How to see what the forest floor so clearly showed. I'll never be the woodsman he was, can never have his physical strength, but he put practical knowledge above school knowledge. Thanks to him, I have both.
