I don't hunt. Nor does anyone in my family, but it just don't interest us. I don't have a problem with it as long as it is hunting season and it is used as food. I do find it sad, but we all have to eat. We raise cows, but we dont eat them. We raise them and then sell them so whom ever buys them can slaughter them for their families. We feed them every day, and they become our pets. I don't think I could ever eat my pets. I don't know how China and other parts of the world can eat dogs, but I guess that their culture. My fiance is born here but raised in Mexico. We bought goats to raise and eat. I don't eat goat but we have big parties and that is what they are point to serve. I don't know if I can handle my goat being killed and eaten. I know that's what we bought him for, but it is sad. Also, will be to my children.
Sure. I don't hunt for "sport" but I like to have a hand in getting my food. I have a garden, vineyard, and fruit trees. I will gather wild edibles: fruit, nuts, roots, leaves, seeds. I eat some meat. Wild meat is best. I catch fish to eat too. Generally, the cuter it is, the better it tastes - except I like sea bugs like crab, shrimp and lobster and they aren't cute. It is important to make sure the game is not chased and that it is cleaned and cooled promptly. Moose in rut is not good. Animals that have been eating things that make them noxious aren't good (antelope, sage hens, and ducks can be challenging).
Yes we do and my family always has. We also fish, nothing is better than Walleye or Crappie. I can't stand it when people hunt or fish just for the sport of doing it then stuff the animal without eating the meat.
I don't but my husband does, he hunts deer I don't like this fact but he loves to hunt. He does eat the meat as do my kids there are people out there who hunt just for the trophies of the hunt. I think I would be more understanding about the hunting the only way to feed our family was to hunt but I guess there really isn't a difference in buying meat from the store because it has to be killed to.
I really wish I could, but alas, we don't own a gun, mainly because we have a child in the house, and I fear the repercussions of her getting a hold of it, or one of her friends. The husband also needs knee surgery, and can't really walk for too long without all kinds of pain. We do get some moose here and there though, and love it when we do.
my late husband enjoyed hunting deer and wild boar, but all i have to say is YUCK! don't get that stuff near me! the boar has an awful smell while cooking and tastes even worse. and i can't even think of eating a pretty little deer- it sticks in my throat and I have to spit it out. my motto is-
"If it don't say moo, I say ewww"
I hunt and fish too! And grow things too!
No I do not hunt but I occasionally do some fishing.
I hunted deer for the first and last time about 12-13 years ago. After i saw how ignorant(pardon my french) the other hunters we're about safety i wanted nothing to do with it..and shortly after i quit there we're guess how many accidental shootings during that season(3)that i know of.. The thing was, i asked my friend that took me with him how far a shotgun ball/deer slug would travel because if i was to swing around and fire on a deer and another hunter was standing no more than 75 to 80 yards from me would it hit them? The reason i asked him was there we're at least three or four other guys standing to the right of us when a deer came through and they all started firing ...then i asked him how do they know who actually killed the deer when five different people we're firing on it.. And the one that got me was them drinking after a day of hunting with loaded shotguns in their hands not my idea of swift people....the last thing that put me off is some people we're hunting just for a trophy and not even giving the meat to a food kitchen for the poor or the local government wouldn't let them because of possible diseases...sorry i went on so much but you asked
