Default Gentlemen; an important announcement !

.
If you are about to spend a day hunting..say for coyotes or deer; are you wearing the proper attire?

If you make an apparel mistake, will your haberdasher ever forgive you? Here is a short training course..

Do not go afield without it this current information..

Can somebody volunteer to pass this information on to the Texas hog hunters?

...And who will be willing to pass this on to the New England coon hunters ?

You guys who hunt fox or coyotes with dogs...do you have somebody who can play a proper horn for the hunt ?

Well, the British don't go hunting game, they go shooting game. Here in America us heathens actually thrash around in the woods and fields pursuing game rather than having it driven to us!

Even here in America hunting tended to be more formal even up into the 1930's and a lot of old hunting pictures show "gentlemen" hunters wearing ties and a sportcoat.

I think old chapps I will have a cup of tea and gently caress my over and under while sitting by the fire in my silk smoking jacket and watch it pour rain like cats and dogs.

Oh boy would I like to take that dude on a real bird hunt. All of my hunting pants have brush guard fronts. The multi-flower rose bushes around here would have that guy stripped down to his birthday suit in a short. I even put Lion Guard brand vests on my dogs to keep them safe in some of the places that I hunt. I would like to have a Purdey side by side though!

I remember back in the sixties when on Sunday TV would have one-half hour sporting shows which some times included bird hunting and the gents back then were far more formally dressed than those today who look like wannabe snipers, but then birds were far more numerous also and not that hard to find at least in the early sixties.

Bob was that show ABC wide world of sports? I used to watch one on Sunday back in the sixties, they had all types of hunting and fishing, the one I really liked was the Flying Fisherman he flew to some spot, they caught some fish, then cooked them on a open fire. That show was really great to watch.

National Geographic still shows people using guns to survive in Alaska.
