Re: Why Do We Hunt

As an employee at the local gun counter we had the occasional person look at the surrounding mounts and ask "how can you just shoot something that beautiful?"

My response was usually along the lines of "Not only do I believe that animals are a miracle of God and not only do I believe that they are some of the most beautiful parts of nature and not only do I believe that they like us, are an integral part of the ecosystem. I also believe they taste good too."
GRAVITY. It's not just a good idea. It's the LAW!

Great answer 4ked Horn.

Either the RMEF or one of the editors of Bugle put out a book a few hears ago called "A Hunter's Heart, Honest Essays On Blood Sport". It had quite a few thoughts on it and some interesting insight. Not an easy read, but worthwhile for those who choose to defend our passion for hunting.

Re: Why Do We Hunt

It is part of who I am. I began hunting as a small kid with my dad. I have always hunted - it is a part of my biography. There is an honesty to it. I am very proud I do not buy meat at the store - I do not pay someone else to "do my dirty work" for me. I kill, butcher,and wrap my own meat. A hunter understands what a burger and steak is - where it comes from and the effort that goes into it.
