I think we owe in to the game we pursue and to our hunting heritage to show it a little respect. If you are a meat hunter that's fine. If you are a trophy hunter and utilize the meat that's fine but we need to show a little more respect by doing all we can to insure a quick and ethical kill. There needs to also be a little more respect after the harvest. Its that lack of respect before, during, and after that gives hunters a bad persona. By even contemplating shooting a deer with a rim fire shows a complete disrespect for the deer, the heritage, "the sport", and hunters. Mutilating game after the harvest is another sign of disrespect, as bad as shooting it and letting it lay and walking away or just taking the head for a trophy. Hunting is on the decline in this country and this type of behavior isn't going to win it any supporters. Or maybe I've got the wrong idea of what hunting is about.:no::no::no:

I definitly agree with ya buddy. Respect is a big part of the sport. If you dont have respect for your game then get out of the feild. I love even just being out there to watch the game while im hunting. Its fun to see how they act. An ethical hunt and harvest is a must, to me anyway.

I always enter the woods with intent on getting meat. If the meat shows up in the form of a dandy buck well that's a great bonus. Ronn, pardon my ignorance, but what do you mean by the rimfire sentence? I was just uncertain that's all.

The only thing close to that I do is if I find trash while hunting I pick it up and carry it out. be it where I park or out in the woods.
