@ LacyLust: Wow! That’s awesome! Yeah we have a deer room at my dad’s and it has all of ours on the wall. I love it but some people find it scary. I was raised by my dad so I grew up hunting deer and turkeys and dove and such… Ohio would be a great place to hunt. My dream would be to send my dad on a trip somewhere to hunt.

Down here in Alabama we face the opposite problem…it has been in the 60s for the past few days and it’s just too warm for them to move. I’m ready for the cold!

YES!!!! I do!!!! I actually shot my first buck when I was 7 months pregnant a couple years ago. I grew up hunting, and LOVE it! On Sunday I was able to rattle a 4×4 buck in that my SO got to shoot! (Wish I could have, but at least we got him!) I’m very tomboy 🙂 I hunt (deer, elk, shoot gophers, coyotes, birds, etc) and fish, hike, camp, 4-wheel, dirt bike, I do it all! I live in MT though, so we are surrounded by mountains!

I don’t hunt and I hate the taste of venison, but I don’t have a problem with hunting.  Where I grew up (small town in Colorado) a huge portion of the town suplimented their food/diets with venison.  I would be highly against hunting just for the sport of it, but everyone I have ever known who has hunted actually “needed” to hunt and used hunting season as a time to stock up their freezers to have enough food to get them through the year.

I hunt too! I grew up with it and have been helping with the processing since I was very young.  My Fiance has always been into shooting guns, but I just got him into hunting this year.  I find that hunting can be a great way to spend time with family and to enjoy the outdoors.

@Lacylust: What part of NW Ohio are you from?  I’m from there too!

As a vegetarian, I no longer hunt. But I grew up hunting. I started out as a toddler, as soon as I could walk on my own without needing to be carried, my dad started taking me into the woods. I have my own guns and knives, but they are all in my dad’s possession as I have no need for them any longer. After I killed my first deer and cried the whole time I was gutting, hauling, and hanging it, I decided that maybe I should follow my heart, give up meat, and stop hunting. I am not anti-hunting though. If you kill the deer to eat it, I am on your side. As a society we are too far removed from our food sources. Knowing you killed and gutted the meat on your table is important I think. Plus, venison, from what I remember, is delicious! 😀 I am, however, very against people who kill deer or other animals simply as trophies! If you are going to kill an animal, make more use of it then a head on your wall. If nothing else, the meat should be donated to the local homeless shelter or food pantry or soup kitchen!
