Oooh, nice!

I’d like to take up hunting, but I’m not quite keen on the idea of processing just yet.

I think that once I’m less affected by blood/guts/poop, I’ll look into getting my license and taking it up.

I don’t, but I would love to run Elk Camp and pack out whatever the hunters take on my horse!  One of these years it will happen….  And congrats to your fiancee!

I shoot (skeet, sharpshooting, etc), but I dont hunt.  My family does, but I cry when I go (I know I know lol)  I do love Venison though, and WAY TO GO to your Fiance on the 12 point!

I hunt with Fiance.  He’s the one that got me into it.  I haven’t gone so much this year but I love archery hunting.

That’s a nice deer!  We don’t have many big ones like that in PA!

Thank you for warning about the picture inside — that’s very thoughtful :o)

I’m a huge animal lover and don’t agree with hunting (to each their own, though) and a Facebook friend posted a picture of her Boyfriend or Best Friend and a deer he just killed on the main page of Facebook!  I was horrified.

I’m a vegetarian, so I obviously don’t hunt 🙂  But I’d just like to say that if you are going to eat meat, I think it’s GREAT that you are killing it yourself.  (I’m from an area with a lot of hunters).  A lot of people don’t realize where their meat comes from and how it gets to their table.  So if you are willing to go out and get your food yourself, I would much prefer people do that to factory farms or massive slaughterhouses.

I love animals too, it’s not about just going out to kill an animal.  The deer we get feed us all year long.  I save a lot of money at the grocery store not having to buy beef!  (and it’s a lot less greasy)

I don’t hunt, but I used to be a park ranger and worked hunt control…does this count? 😉

As a vegetarian, it was a bit weird taking deer jaw bones, and lymphnodes for data collection.  I used to be anti-hunting, but after I fi=ound several deer starved to death from lack of food and overcrowding? Well, suddenly hunting looked a whole lot different to me. I don’t know if I could ever hunt (I lack patience) but I support those who do.

There are no natural predators left for deer (unless you count cars) and I guess I’d just really perfer that a family be fed than a deer starve to death. Also, at the refuge I worked at the hunters often donated meat to shelters through a program called farmers and hunters for the hungry (or something like it).

@LacyLust: I am a huge hunter! I have killed a 12 pt and an 11pt, my 11 scored 138…but I had to put the gun away for a few years because of our club rules that you can only kill bigger than your last or you have to mount it…Mounts aren’t cheap! My little 6 year old brother killed a 10pt last year and had an article written about he and I! It was too cute! I went all last weekend and I missed a coyote…damn thing was running and my dad’s 300 mag was a bit too powerful.

What did your FI’s deer score? Do you hunt too?
