"RapidHonk" Those Deer Right Out Of Your Way

Remember the deer whistles you can mount on the front of your vehicle that will keep deer from jumping in front of your car? I bought an old Subaru once that had them mounted on the front bumper. Many people would ask me what they were and when I told them they followed up with, “Do they work?” Of course my answer had to be a resounding yes, because I have never hit a deer with that car. Of course I’ve never hit a deer with any vehicle with or without deer whistles. But now there is the new RapidHonk.

You got it! Someone who doesn’t like killing animals but much more prefers harassing them, has invented an electronic device that will deliver a pulsating honk of the horn seven times in a second. He says he doesn’t know why that particular sequence of honks works but it does. He also explains the entire package of how to use RapidHonk to decrease your chances of hitting a deer.

“When you have this, you are part of the safety equation,” he said. “For it to work, you need to be vigilant. The added vigilance is a real plus in itself – hit the horn, slow down and chances are, you will avoid a collision.”(embolding is mine)

So, in other words, whatever it takes to get a driver to pay attention and the risks of hitting a deer shrink considerably. How interesting. Maybe a marquee scrolling sign the mounts on the dashboard that continuously flashes the words, “Slow down you damn fool before you hit something”.

RapidHonk promises to have a website up and running soon where you can purchase your own pulsating honker. The url is http://www.rapidhonk.com. Heck, they’re only $45.00 plus tax. What you got to lose? HaHaHaHaHaHa!!!!!

HHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!! The happy honker – RapidHonk!

Here's A Book You Don't Want To Buy

Joan Burbick, a professor of English and American studies at Washington State University, has a new book out titled, “Gun Show Nation: Gun Culture and American Democracy”. The book is an attempt at dissecting the psychology of the gun in American culture. It’s pretty much a left-wing ideological spin as a way of explaining why Americans should be disarmed.

Here’s a statement about Burbick and her book taken from an interview at BuzzFlash.com

Unlike so many talking heads on the gun issue, Burbick gets it. She cuts through to the heart of the psychology of guns, and how the gun rights movement has invented a fear campaign — that someone, the government, is going to take away their guns. The symbolic meaning of owning a gun is to reclaim political power, demonize minorities, distort the issue of crime in America, and distract Americans from the real issues of democracy.

Oh, that’s not enough to convince you? Then try a few of these lines taken from her interview.

Instead of addressing the root causes of the inequalities in our society, such as the limits of access to education, jobs, housing, the legal system etc., we invent or come up with crime scenarios. The gun becomes the substitute way to solve conflict in the United States, and the biggest conflict of all is crime.

Yeah, and the interviewer says she gets it.

I have been to only one gun show so far that did not display and sell hate materials, either newspapers, books or pamphlets and that was a gun show at the Coeur D’Alene Casino on the Coeur D’Alene Indian Reservation in Worley, Idaho. But otherwise, every gun show I’ve attended sold and distributed hate and racist material. Most gun shows I’ve gone to have book exhibits and some of them are quite extensive.

In addition you can buy and various posters, political bumper stickers, signs you can put up in your yard and in your windows. And you will find the most racist, anti-Semitic, and sexist material. I cringe at some of these. I’ve walked around and thought, my God, this is over the top.

Now we’re getting to the truth. Let’s take away someone else’s rights protected under the Constitution. As much as the majority of people in this country find hate literature offensive and would like to not see it displayed at gun shows and other venues, when you live in a free society, you sometimes get this sort of thing. So what do the liberals do? Work to create another law to ban and limit the freedoms granted us.

I think the challenge is to put the gun down and speak about the society, and how to fit into it, in terms of collective solutions.

That’s right, Ms. Burbick. Let’s blame it on the gun.

Maine Hunting Today Staff Writer Publishes Book

A. Sayward Lamb
“Deer Tails and Other Tales”

A. Sayward Lamb writes of his adventures in the outdoors for U.S. Hunting Today, including Maine Hunting Today and Maine Fishing Today. A Maine native and 79 years young, Sayward spends as much time in the outdoors hunting, fishing, canoeing or just getting into trouble.

Sayward began collecting his stories years ago with the idea that someday he could pass them down to his family. Now he’s gone one step further and published them in a book.

This morning, the Lewiston Sun Journal carries a story by Rebecca Goldfine about the release of his book.

You can also visit Maine Hunting Today here and read more about the book and how to order a copy.

Tree Stands

Bob Sampson, outdoor writer for the Norwich Bulletin, has an entire article about tree stands. It contains helpful hints for selecting the right tree stand for your own personal needs. For those considering the use of tree stands, this article could be helpful. It also may help others in learning the best ways to put up and approach a stand.

And while we’re on the topic of tree stands, U.S. Hunting Today’s Product Review Specialist, Richard “The Bee” Becraft, has been taking a look at welding of aluminum on different tree stands. If you own one or are thinking about buying one, you might want to take a look at this report he filed along with some interesting photographs. It could be a healthy choice for you.
