It's not what we don't know that gets us in trouble, it's what we know that ain't so -- MT/WR

Not a quote specific to hunting/shooting, but certainly one that is very often applicable. Also one of the greatest quotes of all time, IMO.

Reads a lot like "It is what it is".

What's up with all these nasty yankee-canuck insults flyin back and forth, and getting exceptions taken? Not playin that game. I thought we are best partners. Cant we all just get along, keep to the high road, and keep our focus on the f'ng hockey games?

Flustrated redwing fan. :O

More of a fishing quote and not sure from whom but I'll pharaphrase on of my favorite.

No man can really comprehend the concept of and instant in time until he in the midst of a fight with a big fish on light tackle , and then the line parts. I'll remember that sob forever.

One of my favorites (not hunting related) from a movie:  "If you need to shoot . . . SHOOT!  Don't talk about it!"  Eli Wallach as "The Ugly" in "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly".
