    If you could catch just one what wopuld it be..Shoot a state typical whitetail deer..Or catch a state record flathead, or blue catfish..I deer hunt and fish, but for me it would be no doubt the catfish!

    I too would take fishing over hunting anyday. I enjoy them both but IMO fishing is tops.

    Deer hunting in Ohio is too cold for these old bones. I'll go for the big fish.:smile2:

    Seeing as I don't hunt, gimme the State record fish, with a side order of world record. Hold the PETA comments. Can I get that to go please? Oh and a x-large Dr Pepper and 2 milky way bars frozen.


    I don't want much do I?

    I would say deer if I got to shoot it with the Muzzeloader that I got when my grandpa passed away. That would bring up alot of great memories and be something that I could tell my kids and grandkids in the future.

    Jack, that is a very tough choice. Need to think about that one.

    why cant we have both and i can put one back......in the water. i dont know about the deer being too easy. i do feel like there is a state record blue and flat in most of the lakes around me but a state record buck in far and few in between around here.

    I would take the flat head because I know it would mean a lot to my grandfather. and that would be the best possible memory ever!!!

    Well I hit a 12 point buck in my car 2 years ago and killed it. I have never hit a 30 pound plus flathead with my car or boat so I would say the flathead would be more elusive and that's what I'd go with.

    "My brother-in-law is an avid hunter. He told me once that a deer was a very elusive animal. I looked at him and said 'I hit two in my van last year. If you are having trouble shooting one slow your bullet down to 55 MPH, put a horn and headlights on it and the deer will actually jump in front of the bullet.'" Ron White :lol:

    I'll take the deer, you can eat the meat and and hang the rack, the catfish would be gone when I got thru (a long time) eating.:lol:

    You got to go for the deer, you only get to hunt for part of the year, but you can fish all year long, so thumbs up for the buck.
