Man, people were just bored as crap back then

I'm probably going to go coyote hunting with my cousin sometime this winter, could of gone with him one time last year but decided to look for more pheasant instead. He used greyhounds back in the day but now he just drives around in harvested fields at dusk until he see's a coyote then gets out and shoots it and sells it to the fur guy that comes around a couple times a year...Sounds fun!

My dad was an avid coyote hunter when I was a kid.  I used to sleep in his Chevy Luv pickup while him and his buddies talked on their CBs trying to determine the location of their dogs and drank beers.

I’ve shot one (1) coyote in my life and immediately felt bad.

my grandfather used to take greyhounds to the coyotes.  very exciting form of killing wildlife.  i wouldn't want to shoot a coyote, though.  may as well smash a dog's head in with a shovel.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

Spent the majority of my high school summers behind the wheel of a bad boy identical to this one.  I was a field cultivating machine.

IRL never had the pleasure, but wore the carpet out with the toy version.

It was stuck in fifth gear. Some of our fields were 10 miles away, it would take almost two hours for me to drive home.

Nice. I dragged a hay rake around northwest Arkansas for seven years with this hot sex machine.

always thought they had a cult following.
My dad had one. When i asked about it once, he said something to the effect of it was the most affordable option at the time.
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

A while back I looked at some new MF tractors.  They looked and rode like some '60's era tractors.  I can confirm your dad's opinion, cause they were the cheapest priced of the new tractors I looked at.
Hot time in Kat town tonight.

Ran a Gleaner one summer on a custom wheat crew. It was clear that I didn't want to be a farmer after that summer. Had some fun though chasing tail from Texas to South Dakota.

Do farmers love anything more than having someone take an aerial picture of their house/barn?   Every farm kid I grew up with had one on the wall.

We lived on some land but didn't farm and my dad got so much aerial house picture envy he had to do it. 

Had it done in winter because he got so lathered up and its just snow.  But it's on the wall.

Take that farmy neighbors!

fun farming status symbol story

my grandpa took the 4wd dozer tractor down to the creek one day. he spent like all morning and around lunch time he had a rock that was probably 5'x5'x4' tall chained to the 3point hitch dragging down the road. I think he dug it out of the site of an old rail bridge

he parked it right in the front of the yard and left it there. my dad's like "uh, what's that for" and my grandpa says "all the rich folks have big rocks in their yards" and that was the end of the discussion. and to this day I have never seen such a big solitary rock in anyone's yard in my life.

I went back looking at photos and didn't find any of the rock but did find a pretty good "iron pile" photo

do most farmers hunt (i'm talking about actual things that are allowed to be hunted) or do they leave that to the city slickers who come out once a year and shoot birds, etc?

Dad liked his rocks so much he took them to town with him 30 years ago.  Backhoe man said never again.  The huge one in the front yard was the fireworks launch pad forever.

He had 3-4 in inventory at the farm if I ever built a house.
