Hunters might thank us for actually teaching the damn deer tolerance.
Deer roll their eyes, and don't contemplate things like... "Why the hell is this dufuss off the blacktop?" .... or "Geezuss eh Christ he needs to re-pack his exhaust!!" Few southeastern hunters have ever glassed western plains from a mesa as thundering sand rails blister the fire-breaks, or descending semis flip their Jake-brakes. The deer, (or Ibex, Oryx, antelope, elk, mulies, etc) hear and see the same crap every day... occasionally they run under the bed, but one of them farts and says "Look a squirrel" and they're back in aisle thirteen chowing down on acorns and persimmons. Hell a SMART hunter would triangulate the dead zones near the center of our ovals and wait for the vacillating herds of deer stampeding to evade the orange hordes.
Prima donna hunters who actually believe we reduce their odds of bagging their quarry are dumber than the deer.

Well said!!

May also do the Tallassee, AL but it's a bit further.

Thanks Vic. What are you using to edit video? I made a last minute decision to get a Gopro before I left, thinking I would use it for time lapse photos, unfortunately, it will take a few pics and shut off and the pics it did take have magenta stripes through them, seems to take video ok though.

I use the Window Moviemaker that comes with Windows 7. Works good for me and was free on my computer.

The fact that the kickstand was UP in one pic impressed me.

Registered.
Just became a grandpa on Thursday so this class smacks of a mid-life crisis...
Hope "abbreviated" course still covers a lot of dirt.
