    need hunting pardner for elk

    "don't need a tag?" and "must be straight".

    At first I thought about forwarding the NWFA website to him.. until I read his post.

    :confused::nuts:

    Whats your take on this?

    He cannot legally carry a firearm and wants someone to shoot an Elk for him which is also not legal. But if I am wrong (Deliverance banjo music here) this is very disturbing...

    Exactly what I was thinking. Also, it sounds like he doesn't want a gay dude to share his RV. Perfectly understandable.

    If this is in fact the situation I think his ad would be taken much more seriously if he were to state being handicapped is the reason he needs help.

    This doesn't surprise me. I quit dealing with craigslist years ago because the majority of people are freaks. Even if the guy wasnt a freak I definitely wouldn't go hunting with someone I just met on there!

    ......i have a handicapped permit, and this needs to be stated in the mans request ! a couple of coffee shop meets would be one of my requests, and for him to bring along one of his family members . it doesn't take that long to figure out the cut of a guy. i think posting on a board like ours would generate a much more probable partner ! i have to agree with "22many" craigslist is loaded with some weird ducks ! makes it tough to go hunting wth a chasity belt on (causes a rash i hear) LOL !

    my opinion only........steven

    You know a lot people use the term "straight" as in straight shooter, honest, respectable, etc...

    "...not that there is anything wrong with that." :)


    I'd me more worried about his request for "hunting intelligents" :)
