PERRY, Mo. — As professional artist Craig Norton of Perry was doing research for an adult coloring book focusing on endangered animals, something kept gnawing at him.

Norton said he would frequently encounter disturbing photographs of big-game hunters posing with the carcasses of endangered animals they had just killed.

He said he saw one hunter standing victoriously atop a dead elephant while flexing his muscles and giving a thumbs-up sign.

He saw a hunter swaying with a dead cheetah in his arms as if dancing with the animal on prom night.

He saw a couple kissing and holding a “Just Married” sign while standing next to a dead grey zebra one of them had killed.

He saw hunters sitting on a dead giraffe while smoking cigars and toasting each other with champagne glasses.

He saw a…

Peter’s Humor – Fall 2017

From Peter Muller, Vice-President, C.A.S.H.

A hunter is introduced to his first thermos-bottle. He is very curious about it and asks the sales clerk what it does. The sales clerk says it’s a wonderful invention which keeps cold food cold and hot food hot. The hunter is very impressed and buys one.

On his next hunting-trip he tells his friends, “Just wait till you see what I got for lunch.” His friends’ curiosity is piqued and they press him to tell what it is that he brought with him. But he persists in not telling them.

Finally, it’s lunch time. With great ceremony, he pulls out his thermos bottle and proudly proclaims, “How would you like some hot soup and ice-cream?”

A guy is telling some hunting jokes to his friends. Finally one of them interrupts him saying, “Please be aware that I am and have been a hunter for years.”

The guy hesitates and says, “Sorry, should I start over and talk very, very slowly?”

——-

A duck hunter bought a bird dog and discovered that the dog could actually walk on water. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him, so he decided to take them all hunting with his new dog.

After a full day of not being able to kill any ducks, the host hunter decided to throw some floating balls into the pond to show his friends what would have happened had they killed any ducks. He urged them all to watch. Each time the hunter threw a ball, the dog calmly walked across the water and retrieved the balls while only getting his paws wet.

Finally, out of disappointment and boredom, the invited hunters decided to leave. The hunter who hosted their outing was surprised that no one had commented on his amazing new dog. Instead they sat stone-faced. This continued all the way back home.

Finally, the duck hunter couldn’t control himself any longer and asked his friends, “Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?”

“I sure did,” responded the most pessimistic of the bunch. “He can’t swim.”

By Peter Muller, VP of C.A.S.H.

Trophy hunting is the selective hunting of wild game for human recreation. In “Trophy Hunting” the entire animal or part of the animal is kept as the “trophy.” It is frequently kept as a remembrance of the hunt. The game sought is usually the oldest with the largest body size, largest antlers or other distinguishing attributes.

trophy hunting

Trophy hunting has both supporters as well as opponents – both from within the hunting fraternity and from outside of it. Discussions concerning trophy hunting are not only about the question of the morality of recreational hunting and the supposed conservation efforts of hunting, but also the observed decline in the animal species that are targets for trophy hunting.
Trophy hunting occurs internationally at many levels. We all…

Another Historic Storm: Surreal Ophelia Strikes Ireland with Hurricane Force

robertscribbler

“Ophelia is breaking new ground for a major hurricane. Typically those waters [are] much too cool for anything this strong. I really can’t believe I’m seeing a major just south of the Azores.” — National Hurricane Center scientist Eric Blake on Twitter.

*****

Warmer than normal ocean temperatures due to human-forced climate change are now enabling major hurricanes to threaten Northern Europe. A region that was traditionally considered primarily out of the range of past powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricanes under 20th Century climatology. One that, in a warmer world, is increasingly under the gun.

(Ophelia roars over Ireland. Image source: NASA Worldview.)

On October 14, Ophelia hit major hurricane status as it moved swiftly toward Europe. Packing 115 mph maximum sustained winds over a region of ocean where we’ve never recorded this kind of powerful storm before, Ophelia set its sights on Ireland. Crossing over warmer than normal…
