Gamefowlnews Fires Back

Gamefowlnews Fires Back

Below is a letter GFN received from an avid reader and their reply to it..

Just who in the HELL do you people think you are at GFN? In your last GOSSIP TABLOID you said you would NOT endorse ANY relief organization. Who in the HELL cares what you think or ENDORSE!!! Nobody reads your crap anyway!!! There are thousands of dead and dying animals because of this hurricane and some of them are CHICKENS that you cockfighters say you love so much!!! If you wanted to help in anyway you'd report about the good work the SPCA's are doing to save these poor animals!!!

Amber H.

Dear Amber, let's take this one step at a time so your delusional mind can comprehend just what and who GFN is.
First of all GFN is not a "GOSSIP TABLOID". We report the facts and only the facts, Amber.
GFN did not say that we would not endorse ANY relief organization. We said we will NOT endorse any MAJOR relief organization and that we will not RECOMMEND any relief organization. However it has come to light, as of today, that we may endorse a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization whom we are in contact with. More on that when we clear all the channels up.
Regarding your statement that "nobody reads your crap anyway", well, you do, and so does the AP (Associated Press). Just ask Mr. Frank David Garcia if anyone reads our "GOSSIP TABLOID", that is if you can find him.
Regarding your statement that we are "cockfighters", you are falling into the same old line that has been drummed into your gray matter for years. Gamefowl does not mean "cockfighters". Gamefowl are any fowl that we hunt down and kill, and then savagely eat them. You can quote us on that.
GFN does support the rights of "cockfighters" to do with their own property as they see fit, as well as ranchers, farmers, fishermen, hunters, and all others who cherish their GOD given right to have dominion over the fowl of the air and the animals on the ground.
Now to your last point regarding the "poor animals" caught up in this disaster known as Hurricane Katrina, GFN suggests, as we have before, that you personally get into your swim suit, made from hemp, and take a long swim past the dead HUMAN bodies to rescue as many wet cats as you can.

Final note, thanks for reading GFN and please tell your ARA friends to join our email list, it's FREE, however donations will be accepted in the future.

Handling Tips For the Gaff

Handling Tips For the Gaff
by Allen Butler

1)After arriving at the club, settling you cocks in and weighing in etc.
go to the pit and look it over very throughly. Look for holes in the ground,
high spots, low spots, anything thing that might cause your cocks a problem. You
want the high ground (Remember it). Look at the lighting: if in a building look
for dark spots or lights glaring that could be in your cocks eyes blinding him.
Get down on your knees and look at it from a rooster's level. If outside always
have the sun to your back. Be first in the pit so you can pick your ground.

2) Always heel your rooster in the same kind of light that he is going
to fight in. Get him to pitside,after heeling, early enough that his eyes will
have time to adjust to that lighting.

3) Now you are in the pit: Do not run around showing your rooster off
by holding him up high or tossing him around for the crowd to see. This upsets
him. Do not allow the other handler to hold his cock over or above yours. This
sometimes will intimidate a cock to the point of him not fighting his best. If
he tries this just turn your rooster away from his. When the ref says to make em
mad watch the other handler real close. You want his bird pecking yours more
than yours pecking his. Makes your bird madder than his and vice versa. Do not
allow him to hold his bird's head for yours to peck! If he tries this simply
walk away and say"mine's mad enough".Carry you an extra cock to the fight just
to be used to make your derby birds mad before you take them to the pit. At the
command of face or flush your roosters
I have seen slick handlers get a gaff in his opponent while facing them off

Attack last night. Bobcat maybe or what?

Attack last night Bobcat maybe or what?

I will see what you guys think came into my yard.

I came within a few seconds of loosing my best brood Kelso last night. I just happened to be awake at 3 o'clock this morning when I herd him screaming. I didn't know what chicken it was until I got up there (I was running and hollering to scare whatever it was off). Anyway whatever it was was able to actually move the brood pen (30lbs) or so but it did almost what a coon would do because it reached in and tried to pull him out.

I don't suspect a coon because from my understanding and past times coons will attack the head rip it off eat the neck etc and leave the rest behind. and the fact that the pen was moved. This thing grabbed it through the fence by the tail and pulled all the the tail feathers out of him trying to pull him through. Another reason I don't think its a coon is because we have lost 2 ducks over the last 4 nights (every other night thing) There is no trace of the ducks carcasses etc so its big enough to carry off its prey. Also if it helps any, when I was running up there I had a flashlight and saw something run with green eyes. That's all I could really see were those eyes. I'm not sure what different predators eye colors are. Any help would be appreciated because its coming back and I need to get it. Any ideas on how to get it to would help
