hunting is a very personal thing. there is an old post somewhere with a poll discussing the reason we hunt and how the reasons are different for each hunter.
I love to hunt, i like bringing meat home to help feed my family, but i also have great respect for all wildlife, nature, and our role in it, as do most ture hunters. killing an animal shouldn't be taken lightly and should be done with respect for that animal. we owe it to them to do the best we can to learn all the ways of the outdoors and the reason behind the taking of the life we are about to end, as well as conducting this with the utmost proficiency and concern for the animal as an individual animal and a species over all.
i know, heady and deep stuff for rednecks but i believe things that need to be thought out because ending a life is permanent and a pretty heavy load.
good hunting and remember to teach your kids that hunting should be done with respect for the hunted.
