"To everything there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under heaven:
a time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away .."
Copyright Old Testament
I had 2 outings in the eastern province of Austria, once a haven
for small game, as a guest, in both places just wild,non-reared
small game only. One of these 2 shoots a world-class pigeon
shoot in the 1990's and the early 200x's.
Today: It has been a walk with a gun in the hand, not worthwile
to be there.
At one of the 1990's pigeon outings then there has been a new
guest, who told us that he has taken lessons with the
Austrian parcours champion, thinking this would enable him
to "plough with the goat".
Within half an hour he became very humble and increasingly
nervous as he had bagged one bird to 15 shots.
About at the same time as my 2 outings an e-mail by the
deputy regional hunting kapo complaining about the catastrophic
low levels of small game.
I answered its you who is responsible for that mess, no answer.
What does not cease to amaze me is this obsessive, religious
indoctrination of the antis,
politicians who listen to them together with
defensive and teethless hunting reps to recreate
a pseudo-wilderness in an overpopulated,agro-industrialised
and predator-protected country.
After 56 years of continued Austrian hunting licenses I have
decided to discontinue and I told this so to the hunting rep.
I will just take the one from Czechia, in hunting terms a
very pragmatic country. They abandoned steel-shot for
water-fowl , as they found out it is "Aasjägerei", the
meat due to the rusting steel-pellets within short not edible
and finally they dont have white-headed eagles feeding
on lead-poisoned water-fowl.
And I have an invitation to a duck shoot in Pakistan for
october. The invitation is from a wealthy clan-chief to his private estate in the Indus-valley. I had the pleasure to
get to know him in Vienna. He even asked me if he should send
me the ticket. What a man.
With a drama in the family and me turning 80 within few days
I have come to realize there may be not only a last
hunting season but also that "every day is a precious one".
As the kids dont hunt it is time to return things to the
market.The things are called sidelock-ejector, the
embodiment of beauty, craftmanship and functional longevity,
which I had the pleasure to handle and forward as
custodian to someone for further pleasure and use.
My late friend Dr.HW in a similar depressive situation
told that he wants the barrels of his pair of Holland
selfopeners - at the moment once more on the market -
as kandlestick, the nr. 1 right to the coffin and the nr.2
left of it.
Its time to cease with the lamento, the complacent cynicism
and switch out with the rhyming sentence
"Eat and drink its later than you think" or more
"Hunt and drink its later than you think".

..Die Kugel und der Rubel rollt...
In a previous post I said RIP to the bygone greenies and more
recently its time to cease with my cynicism.
But life goes on and news continue to appear, so I will comment
on recent developments in a dry manner.
The young greenie who revolted intifada-like had been sacked
by the greenie-establishment. So for the last election she
joined the commie-party ( yes, this still exists) but without
any chance for a MP job.
So she has to return to the hotel-mamma, the mamma herself
a greenie MP in a regional parliament.
A greenie-silverback has been eliminated in a democratic
pre-election for a sure MP-seat, so he left the party, founded
a name-list-party (bearing his name) and succeeded to be
But he seems to be a rogue when drunk so he fell prey to the
me-too wave which flooded also across the Austrian border.
He did not take the seat in the parliament ( for the time being).
The head of the greenies, by profession a lady-lawyer,
resigned before the last election. She had vanished then
for nearly a year and has reemerged now.She got an exec job
in the gambling concern, in greenie terms the evil-empire.
As the photo of her job announcement tells she is under
medical treatment, I will refrain from any further comment,
just say "Die Kugel rollt".
Our previous finance-ministre, by learned profession a
furniture-discounter and hobby-winemaker,
hardly in office ,needed 3 milliseconds to increase the
asset taxes by 20% despite being from the blackie-party.
He reemerged now,on the photo the contrary of a chap under
medical treatment, telling to the world that he got a
consultant job at the Russian gas utility, that means
he is on the payroll of Wladimir Wladimirowitch P.,
in short "Der Rubel rollt".
A former PM had an underdog job in the workers-chamber
before becoming politician. During his time he made the
fatal mistake to neglect the leftie-Praetorianer-Garde,
i.e. Trade Unionists.
He is now lobbyist/consultant to/into a former soviet republic,
the press told how many millions he is making.
In short "Der Rubel rollt".
Or lets take a look to our beloved teutonic neighbours.
Their former PM , the gregarious G.Sch., a personal friend
of Wladimir Wladimirowitsch P. has also a job in a Russian
enterprise. In short "Der Rubel rollt".
One can not expect that all these chaps will become
"Bettelmönche in der grauen Kutte" once their political
jobs are lost.
What comes to my mind is this sermo of a Russian
"Show me the westerner whom I can not buy"!
Simple answer:
Postscriptum: How to explain to the Polish apple-farmer
that he can not export his apples to Russia due to the
embargo and all these chaps can provide their services
to the kingdom of the neo-czar.
