I thought you were going to say Western Union telegraph operator
You could kill only 1 deer a year!
People didn't complain about seeing no deer when hunting the exact same spot for 20 years!
I had to wait in a line to use a payphone to call home!
that my favorite gamebird was bobwhite quail.
....That Men were Men, boys were the dogs and nobody cared about scores.....Deer were FOOD.

We used to sleep out at the court house to get our anterless licenses
We had wait till after the 2 week buck season to kill a doe!
My first hunter safety card says "NRA" on it!
My license was made out of metal.
I remember when Bear season was one day!
Hunting clearcuts was not like going on a high fence hunt.
I bought a Marlin 30-30 from Joe the Motorist Friend for 94 dollars.
My bow was a Black Hawk Hornet recurve and I was the only bow hunter in the woods.The 60's were a wonderful time in the woods. My grandson can't believe the stories.
If you told somebody you were tagged out,
they would have said "big deal, put a sock in it." dad hunted, shot a 4 or 6 pt every year and was happy with it. He has since quit when other people started dictating what a trophy now is considered.
