I mostly shoot paper or steel since there's no limit or season and I love to shoot. I do hunt deer and elk and eat 'em. I also hunt coyotes for both the thrill of hunting them, and to help relieve the damage they cause as predators. As a kid I used to shoot every Cow Bird I could get my crosshairs on too. They're an evil little bird, and great .22 practice all rolled into one!

Default Yes Yes I do

I only shoot at what I am willing to eat. Moose meat and venison are always in my freezer and Grouse/Sharptails make great stirfry or stews.

I eat what I shoot,...primarily whitetail deer and grouse. I do not use the "push" hunting method either. I do not enjoy standing in one place all morning either,..I like to sneak hunt. It is very sporting and in my opinion the most satisfying. When bow hunting I stand more often,... at least for longer periods of time.

I was brought up being taught that you eat what you kill. My dad took 2 deer and an elk every year and that helped keep food costs down through out the year. Pest control is the only time that it's okay not to eat your victims, unless they happen to be something tasty like pigs.

I always have. My wife doesn't like venison so I haven't hunted in quite a while.

Default Eattin' Good in the Neighborhood

If it's a game animal and I kill it, I eat it.
If it's a pest, I kill it.
Normal people don't kill animals just to kill them. They have long medical terms to describe people like that, terms I can't spell.

I usually shoot what I will eat, moose, dear, grouse, ect... like watching wildlife so I can learn there ways, and make us better hunters.
I don't beleive in ending any creatures life just so I can feel good about my shooting! For that, I shoot paper targets, this really tells me how good of a shooter I am!

If I'm not gonna eat it, I'm not gonna shoot it. The only exception are coyotes. I'll shoot as many of those as I can!

Default I ate a robin once.

My Dad always kept me in plenty of BB's and a working BB gun from when I was 6 years old until I graduated to a .22 at age 11.

Here were his rules:

1. NEVER point gun at anybody or anything you don't want to hurt.

2. NEVER bring a cocked BB gun into the house.

3. NEVER shoot anything but game animals and pests.
a) Quail, and doves are the only game birds you may shoot.
b) English Sparrows, starlings, blue jays, are all pests.
c) Robins, bluebirds, finches, hummingbirds, and woodpeckers are all
strictly forbidden.

One day I strayed and shot a robin. Dad made me clean it and mom cooked the breast and then I had to eat it. it had a two tone breast much like a dove but much stronger tasting. In fact you couldn't tell much difference between it and a spotted owl.
