I thought he was saying  that only a college indoctrinated person could believe that. It is funny if you take it that way.  Truth, though, is that if we still glaciers in north Mo. many of our every day critters wouldn't live here; so it turns out that global warming isn't all hype.

Sure, global warming is why we no longer have glaciers and why possums have replaced mastodons. It's been a lot more than a couple unnoticed degrees too.

They say all kinds of stuff that I witness differently.   "No threadfin at Lake O", Hybrid Stripers can't successfully cross-breed", "No Cottonmouths north of the Missouri River",  "CWD is spreading", "You can't shoot feral hogs and control their numbers", "Zebra mussels can destroy a fishery", "Felt soled boots are to blame for spreading didymo, and didymo can destroy a fishery", "The emerald borer beetle is dead set on destroying our woodlands",  "Bass tournaments, regardless of their numbers and frequency have no ill effect on a fishery", "We need to spend a few million on a handful of collared elk", "Showing fatherless urban kids what catching a fish is like will make them pull their pants up and spin their hats back around the right way"....

Seriously I could go on all night.   To say that they proclaim expertise and authority while saying, doing, and defending galactically stupid things, is putting it mildly.  Just because they are the only "official" friend that us outdoorsmen have doesn't mean that they are actually good at what they are doing.   The cold hard truth is that they are a pious legion of blue pill buffoons. 

That doesn't mean you can't love them, but let's not totally loose our grip on reality by accepting their statements as "good information", because more often than not it falls short.

You guys probably also believe in the bigfoot, the loch ness monster, and skunk apes.  Don't you know the gubment's been stocking them rattlesnakes and other "poisonous snakes" via helicopter for years throughout the midwest.  You all need to get your vision checked, and you may want to buy a snake ID book as well.

The range of cottonmouth snakes is clearly defined in the scientific literature.  False ID's don't count.  The USGS, MDC, Army COE, Universities, American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists, and other agencies that do collections and surveys have data to back this up. If you want, you can go wrangle of few of those freeze tolerant cottonmouths from the salt river basin to prove them wrong.  I won't hold my breath.

So you are saying that the same guys that said there were no lions in Missouri for years are the people to believe? The same people that can't find bigfoot? (It's aliens by the way. That's why they don't find any dead ones, or where they live. Look at UFO sightings in relation to bigfoot sightings.) And also the same people that can't find the Ozark Howler? I think I'll believe the guys I know before I believe the government.

Not the same thing.  Mt lions started expanding range in late 90's and early 2000's and nobody was killing them back then--no body=no proof (today's DNA techniques are light years ahead of 10 years ago). Lots of people shoot snakes, I would think a few would end up being cottonmouths...

 

Aliens on the other hand...
