I only hunt dove or duck. I don’t think I have it in me to kill anything else. My husband is a HUGE hunter (and fisherman), though, and I do go sit with him from time to time. I love love love venison and have been making chili like crazy lately. We are in Florida, too, which means smaller and fewer deer in general, although we also have a lease in GA. He also pheasant hunts a lot in South Dakota. I love having the freezer stocked with wild game!

And for those of you who think most hunters are just in it for a trophy, I can tell you I know a ton of hunters, and I can’t think of one who treats it like that. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t process and eat the meat from their kill.

Also, most people don’t realize that almost all of the money that funds wildlife protection areas as well as helping to improve populations of animals that are dwindling, comes from hunting permit sales and the like. Without the money from hunters, the government has a lot less to pull from to help protect the animals that actually need protecting.

I’m not a hunter but all of the menfolk on hubby’s side are avid hunters. They hunt only for meat and whatever they harvest is shared equally between the families. Quite frankly, I rather eat game than supermarket meat any day.Yes I am aware of the horrible treatment suffered by the animals that end up as meat at the supermarket and hunting, IMO,  is a far more humane (and natural) way of obtaining meat.  I must say that I do despise trophy hunting which is rampant in my area. Killing a beautiful animal just to mount their head on the wall and leaving the rest of the animal behind to rot seems gross and wasteful – especially since the local food banks will gratefully accept donations.
