Shrug. Dead is dead.
I mean, you *do* understand that somebody had to kill the animal
you're eating today, right? (The Feds frown on using the meat after
they drop dead on their own, and it could be a long wait for your
entree even if the Feds didn't care.)
I understand someone kills them and I eat those animals. I am just saying
there is no need for me to go kill another animal when there is so many
already killed for me.
I am also not against guns or hunting. If you want to do that fine. But
having had my cats all these years I have a different respect for animals
and I just wouldn't hunt anything. I do enjoy target shooting. I was in the
Infantry for over 4 years.
My Maine Coon on the other hand has killed countless squirrels and I can't
feel sorry for them as they jump on our balcony where 2 cats just live for
the moment they can kill something. Sort of a suicidal death wish for the
squirrels coming here.
Besides: if hunters eat what they kill it means one less Holstein that
had to die for your sins.
Yes but that cow was raised to eat and is going to die whether we eat it or
"Trophy" hunters, however, are another thing altogether.
Can't say anything good about them.
As long as a hunter eats what he kills, I have no problem
with it. Meat is meat. I don't see much point in trophy
hunting though, except that it can thin herds that might
or might not be overpopulated for the area they live.
In many cases, deer need to be harvested or they
overpopulate their area and have trouble finding enough
Saying all that, I rarely hunt myself any more, and I
own land with lots of deer on it. It's just too much hassle
for me to deal with. Has to be processed, etc.
But there is a very good chance that some of the deer
on my property will either be shot as they pass through
other properties, or by hunters that trespass on my
property. It's 450 miles away, and I can't watch the place
while I'm down here in cement world.
But even if they do, I don't really care too much as long
as they eat what they shoot. To me, that's the bottom
line. If one is going to shoot it, they should be prepared
to process and eat it. If not, they should leave it alone.
Some animals, although edible to some, I'm going to kill
even though I'm not going to eat it. Poisonous snakes
are one. I'm going to ventilate every Copperhead and
Rattlesnake I run across, and I danged sure ain't going
to eat one. Buzzards gotta eat, same as worms.
But for the most part, I consider myself a non hunter
these days. I'd just as soon just watch them. I have
deer that sometimes visit me at my campsite when
I'm up there. It's never really occurred to me to blast one.
But if I needed the extra food, I would have zero problems
with it. I know that even if I don't shoot any, someone
else likely will. And even then, it's not going to put much
dent on the population. There are loads of deer around
there. Lots of other critters too.
I was up there in Oct and spooked a few as I walked
around the place.
Listen to this grunter I spooked while taking some
pictures and video of a creek bed that runs through
my place. You can't see it, but you can hear it grunting
for some deer tang if you crank the volume up.
I think another doe was near the buck I spooked.
Either that, or it was bitching at me for disturbing him.. :/
