How many people here only shoot something if they are going to eat it in the traditional survival sense of hunting? How many people just enjoy shooting things because they move and have no desire to eat them? What philosophical differences lead to these two points of view?
Mostly I shoot squirrel to eat but with the coyotes running amok up around the father in laws area, Im considering getting into hunting for things other than eating.
I do not kill for the thrill of killing. I eat elk,venison,rabbit,and game birds. I may eat a rattle snake if I'm hungary,but I would not eat a terrorist or a home invader that I kill. So I guess my answer is I don't eat every thing I kill.
