I'll back you up on this a little bit.

I listen to Steve's podcasts for over a year now and as an avid listener, I enjoy the atmosphere of his podcasts. I don't always agree with Steve, etc on some of the conclusions he draws, but I am also not the kinda guy that dismisses a person for just one thing. Different people have different perspectives.

Now, this guy who hunts 50 acres of family land in the Hill Country can have whatever opinion he wants on HF and all that jazz, but at the end of the day it was a pre-K move to just mention that he got thrown off of TBH for bringing up how HF is messing with his fair chase. There was really no need to even add that. It was totally a "look, I am getting picked on down here!" Very much whiny... like nails on a chalk board, that really irks me.

We all have seen the folks on here who stand up on their soap box and proclaim the that their methods or opinions are gospel and get all upset that nobody listens to, or agrees with them. They can't take criticism, etc. I don't think I have ever seen a guy/gal get thrown off unless they start getting all high and mighty and getting petty... which this guy either did... or "getting thrown off" was really his way of saying his ideals weren't accepted and he left.

But yeah, I don't get it... no, wait, I do... I get it... that person didn't get to find an audience that agrees with him and so he went whining to a place where somebody might repeat what he said and knows that nobody will offer any substantial criticism of his view point.

At the end of the day, I don't really care... but it was annoying to see somebody take a cheap shot at a large group of people.

The majority of the folks who listen to the MeatEater podcast I bet have never heard of, nor give 2 shats about this site, and probably even forgot the name as soon as he said it.

Man there are so many I knew about and so many I didn't.

I think the mention on the podcast was pretty inconspicuous, but find it funny that getting thrown out of the forum was life-changing enough to make it worth mentioning in the email.

That person probably drops that fact into a lot of unrelated conversations due to the everlasting butt hurt.

So if a person gets banned what's to stop them from creating another account? Always wondered this.

I think you have to work pretty hard to get banned around here....

I also think that if this was a member only viewing forum and you had to post your real name that the conversations would always be a little more polite. Internet tough guys live in the shadows of their mom's basement.

I believe you would be surprised at his true wealth. He is not associated with Tinks 69 in any way any more.

My favorite was when he offered Diane and I $1000 if we could find him a girlfriend. He would pay up after she stayed with him 6 months. I know absolutely no woman that desperate.

Hook a brother up, and then doing so, and then reading it AND commenting, all in the same post? I didn't see it that way. I got the flatten like a pancake was awesome. I really don't think ANYONE thinks what Ragin' did was awesome.

It wasn't "awesome". It was a post of frustration and from someone who had taken it personal. He felt like he was singled out and was being held to a different standard. Ragin and I disagreed regularly. Sometimes he was harsh in his disagreement. However I try not to take things personally.

That said his disagreements and alleged conflicts with you and Micheal weren't necessarily public information. Publicly attacking you on the forum you provide for he and us wasn't right and was unacceptable. However if some of the things he told me are true I can understand his frustration.

To me some of the rude things said by members on the 271/278 threads were classless and rude as well and I would understand if you gave those individuals a long break as well.

In the end we are guests on here. I post my real name, or at least the name I go by personally and professionally because I should be accountable for my words. Sometimes I am in the right, sometimes not. But I am never right to be insulting, rude or demeaning to someone. Ragin, the fun and knowledgeable guy that he is, crossed the line in that post.

Still, like some of the illegal and brutal hits in football, the kid getting kicked in the knads on America's funniest and watching two women back into each other in the Albertson's parking lot, we find humor watching other peoples pain.

Wrong but true.

Mary, please don't take offense to the guys wanting to see what Ragin said. They don't know what happen. I saw his post and referred to it as a scorched Earth exit. I have not, and won't share it with anyone, but I do understand some guys wanting to know. It's not a knock on you at all when you see people asking to see what happened. A decent person would see it and know what he said was out of line, and he deserved what he got. I think even Ragin would agree. He said those things knowing he was gone. I don't know anything about what happened and don't care. I just hope you know all these guys asking for PM's mean no harm. It's just guys that want to see the train wreck even though they know it's gonna be ugly

I saw his farewell post and he showed his true colors, he was an ***! Having been a longtime member here I have a hard time believing any of the mods would have acted in a way to deserve such a lashing. Mary, Michael, et al, y'all put up with a lot of crap, but do a good job of running a clean forum. Thanks!

But back on topic. I think guys would be amazed with how people from out west look at our way of hunting out here in Texas. Hell im from here and I think high fences are the worst thing that has happened to hunting probably ever. Some parts of Texas just have livestock and not wildlife. I mean just look at the thread going right now where the dip **** shoots a show goat with a blow gun in a pen. That doesnt look good for hunting.

The trouble is some folks think high fence animals have no chance to avoid being killed by the hunter. On small places I would say that's often true. Large tracts not so much.

Most high fences are put up to protect an investment. I can't blame folks for that.

I enjoy Steve's shows. Never seen a blog so I don't know what he says about HF. However I really don't give a rip what he thinks. I'm old enough and intelligent enough to form my own opinion.

I like Steven. Big Fan.
I own and have read all his books (even the cooking ones) numerous times.
He has some opinions I dont agree with, but hes allowed to have them....
I do enjoy watching some of his adventures...they are very Shockey-like - and thats a good thing.
His cooking stuff is very educational..and admittingly, gotten me to try stuff i normally wouldnt have.
The only real issue I have is when he does dip into his cali-life-influences and talks **** about feeder hunting, baiting, high fences, or even land ownership in other states (Texas is ALWAYS named first), is its hard to listen to , and not think back to his own writings about him purposely trespassing on Native American property to get to an area that would enable him to kill a buffalo.
(regardless of how bad *** that trip was...).
its just a bit a hypocritical to be high and ethical and moral, and then perform, write (and profit from) about what essentially is poaching.

He is easy to tune-out when he goes into those little areas...because hes predictable in his dialog- so its not a big deal.

Most high fences are put up to protect an investment. I can't blame folks for that.

I enjoy Steve's shows. Never seen a blog so I don't know what he says about HF. However I really don't give a rip what he thinks. I'm old enough and intelligent enough to form my own opinion.

Two co workers were on a several thousand acre HF ranch (Greater than 10,000). They drove around all day until they saw what they wanted, hopped outta the truck, shot the animal they wanted from a herd of say 5 to 10 animals. Well the other animals that didn't get shot had to be shooed away because they were so used to people that they didn't know to run. Those same co workers have done similar hunts numerous times, and multiple ranches, so I know this isn't a one off situation.

That is what most people not from Texas think of Texas HF hunting.

I mean just look at the thread going right now where the dip **** shoots a show goat with a blow gun in a pen. That doesnt look good for hunting.
Yep. That same guy would lose his mind if he had a sponsor, and they dropped him. Just like those clowns that speared the bear and got dropped by Under Armor. Some stuff just doesn't need to be online.

You can do this on the 2000 acre low fence lease I'm on. Deer stay under the feeder when you walk up and climb in your bow stand.

That is what most people not from Texas think of Texas HF hunting.
And a lot of them that are from Texas think that way also.

Most deer that are that tame are stocker bucks that were bottle fed and lived their lives until their release.

I've had more than a few hunters on my place that will drive their UTV close to the blind with 48" LED light bar blazing approach the blind with the wind at their backs, wearing the brightest headlamp they could find while they pour out a huge pile of hand corn and wonder why the big bucks didn't show up.

sorry I got off topic
