161 Years Ago....

Postby Woods Walker » Fri Sep 02, 2011 8:06 pm

Do you know what happened 161 years ago next month?

161 years ago this fall...
back in 1850?

California became a state.
The people had no electricity.
The state had no money.
Almost everyone spoke Spanish.
There were gunfights in the streets.
So basically nothing has changed.
That, my friends, is your history lesson for today….
Hunt Hard,

Kill Swiftly,

Waste Nothing,

Sad but true :(

Maybe some day (I'm delusional I guess - but hoping) people will wake the heck up. It's hard when all the money spent to buy votes works so well.

Same as it ever was.
Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.
