Who was this person named Robin?

Same rules apply in this house. I, too, find no "fun" or love in the killing. There is a thrill in the harvest, yes. But it's not the same as bloodlust.

And as for turkeys - - hooboy!!! Now THAT'S exciting! Getting a spring gobbler fanning and strutting within a few YARDS of you and him not even knowing you're there... well sir, no amount of buck fever ever came close to that. Gets me every year. And I get at least one turkey every year. Fall hunting is not so exciting at all, but the meat, to me anyhow, tastes a whole lot better, I think it's just because of differences in what foods they've got available.

Ever 'hunted' with blanks? You get to do the stalk, if that's what you do, and when it's time to shoot, no harm is done.

I've heard it works well with those scopes that take pictures.

I only shoot it if I intend to eat it, with only one exception. My little brother and I shoot the lizards in my back yard for fun when he comes to visit

I shoot and eat a lot of deer. I also like to eat wild turkey and squirrel. Rabbits are good too.

I love to hunt. I view it as somewhat of a birth right. My ancestors have been doing it since the dawn of man. It is only natural. Some scientists say that the humans' need to hunt and eat meat is what spurred our evolution. Sometimes though I feel a small pang of regret, I have to sit down and have a "talk" to the recently departed and God to express my appreciation for the sacrifice. It sounds wierd but it is just something that I do. I don't know why. When it comes to shooting for fun, I like to clean the dollar store out of all their Barbasol for targets. Luke warm cans of club soda do the trick also.

Default shoot to eat

I don't shoot anything unless i'm gonna eat it, that's just wrong and a waste of ammunition. Unless of course your talking about skunk or coyotes. I shot a skunk last week at 200 yards, iron sights on my SKS, one shot/one kill. I love eating rabbit, squirrel, deer, turkey.

It depends, we had one year that the deer population got so bad on the farm they where tearing up our corn field. Game warden said to shoot but leave them lay.

Forget that, we filled my uncle's freezer and our own before season opened. 13 deer before opening day. We wound up using deer meat as dog and cat food. I think population control is our job as laid out in Genesis. I don't like to waste anything, I fish to eat fish and I hunt to eat meat. I would like someone to post a link on the proper way to process a deer. I try to be a good steward of money and I can do it if I had a chart or something. BTW, rabbit is the best meat ever.

If we would have left them lay that would have gone against my morals. I've lost one deer and I did my best to find it. I know that deer fed other animals, but I think we should do our best to manage what God gave us to the best of our abilities and besides, food is getting expensive, us hunters are going to be the only ones that can survive when this country does finally collapse.
