Lately I have concluded the desire to hunt is something one is born with. I like a good piece of meat as much as anyone, but never had a desire to kill my own. Dressing it out is a smelly mess to me ,hanging the trophy head up would be of no satisfaction. Of course these folks with the hunting gene could soon find my quirky ways ,so I am just as weird. My doctor and dentist are hunters so it affects those with proven brain power. Anyway I do my hunting at the butcher shop

I grew up hunting. Mostly upland game birds and rabbits. After college, added deer and turkey. All managed game.

I have not hunted now in a couple of decades, but still enjoy meat, and will take wild game from other hunters anytime its offered.

I have no animosity for those that choose to hunt...legally. I believe that without the hunting license fees, the rest of us would not have many of the critters to see and enjoy in our fields and woods, because that has been where much of the funding of game management and re-introduction comes from.

Someone please bring a fresh elk roast, please! Brad

I never had an interest in hunting. I always enjoyed crabbing and fishing, especially out in the ocean.

Tom, don't you remember we were *land blasted here by a drive-by poster as being awful, non-caring, unethical, and immoral people if we even thought about eating meat.  Shopping at the butcher shop is just as bad as if you had murdered the animal yourself!

* I know it is "lambasted", but I like "land blasted" better ..... more descriptive .... and we use it on a sports forum I am on!smiley

I tried hunting once. I knew how to shoot so off we went. I actually shot at a deer. I missed, but the recoil from the rifle hurt my shoulder and left a bruise (my fault, I didn't hold it tight enough). One of our group actually killed a deer and I helped dress it out. NEVER again!! It was awful, nasty, smelly, dirty, icky!

Ever since then, if I want to eat meat, I purchase it at the store. No more hunting for me. All my hunting is now done with a camera.

I'm kind of the same... I hate everything to do with meat... except for eating it. Have never had a desire to hunt or fish (both just seem to spark zero interest in my mind). I don't even like going into butcher shops... I don't like the smell, or even really the sight of raw meat.

But then again, I always have my steaks cooked rare... weird innit?

Sherry, do you know how hard you have to throw a 35MM cannister to bring down a deer?smiley

As they say, " There is room in this world for all of God's creatures... right in between the stringed beans and the mashed potatoes."  I used to help my dad dress out the deer he'd get every year.  No thanks.  Still, I don't mind catching and cleaning fish.

I usually find the deer runs away when I yell "SAY CHEESE!!"

It certainly is which is why I think hunting is the most "honest" way of providing one with meat.

And if God didn't want us to eat animals, he shouldn't have made them out of meat.

Fishing and bird hunting. 90% of the fish are in 10% of the water so that's really a day outdoors and get some fish at the end to take home to eat.

I'm not very good at shooting trap clays but that's a social exercise to get accustomed to the swing for real birds. Got tired of the livery taste of the ducks and Canada geese so after 5 years, packed that in.

Many many miles of old logging roads in the autumn, watching the season change.
Maybe get lucky and see some cats or wolves or bears.
Take the Nikon spotting scope, there's goats and sheep up top to look for.
Always forget to bring a few carrots for porcupines, they are such forest clowns.

Our 3 species of grouse are forest birds. They come out to edge to forage, mostly for plant stuff that they pack their crops with. So the deal is to watch the edges with a split second to get out for shots. Easy to field dress, fabulous to eat, they are our "wild chickens."
One year, never pulled the trigger. Another year, got one big bird on the last day of the season.
Another, put 55 birds in the freezer.

Sat still as could be one day, watched an adult Lynx pair supervise the play of their 3 kittens in a grassy roadside place, 10+minutes, maybe 25 yards from the truck. That's the ultimate payoff.

My attitude is that the chickens are a bonus to another day well wasted, outdoors and close to the middle of nowhere. Drive the same few roads 100+ times, you notice changes, too.

As much as we "beat our chests" about being a more developed animal species, mankind continues to display primeval instincts. Ours are practiced on a larger scale and are much more lethal. To ourselves and other creatures on this planet.

I was raised in a non-hunting but thoroughly meat-eating family and have lived as a practicing carnivore but I have long thought that meat eating should perhaps be rightly reserved to those willing to kill it, dress it, butcher it, and cook it. And those not willing should be vegetarians. That would leave me a Pescatarian, as I have no problem harvesting and cleaning fish and seafood but I'm not field dressing any large mammals.

Freezing your butt off in the woods is fun and all. But let's be real, the dressing/breaking down/butchering is the actual fun part.

Leftover Hallowe'en treat OHenry chocolate bars are a serious frozen treat.
If you're uncomfortably cold, waltzing around in a snow-covered forest, then dress for it.
You're only fooling yourself.
I place a great range of consumptive and non-consumptive values on my landscape.
Grouse season usually runs from Sept 01. - November 15, maybe shorter with finishing blizzards.
I try my best to get out and putz around at least 10 times, 20 is better.

Dressing game as finished as you will ever see in a butcher shop is my goal.
Dozens of recipes running through my head all the time.

I tend to say to my friends born with this--Cimbing up in a tree and shooting a deer  really does little ,to show expertise . Popping that quail when he comes up like a rocket would be more to prove ones abilities.  Of course we know which would look best in the freezer.

I know I've gotten some pretty beautiful pictures by NOT throwing that cannister, but using it instead  in a camera.  (That was taken from my sister's kitchen window, not mine.)

Slice up a whole bunch of grouse breasts into "fingers."
Seasoned flour, egg wash and crumb coating = 2/3 smashed cornflake, 1/3 raw sesame seed.
Pan fry in Mazola corn oil.
Whip up a huge Cesar salad. Open a quart jar of home made, 3 year-old plum sauce.
Find a few home-baked herb baguettes to warm up.
Red and white wines for those who want, chilled white grape juice for the rest.
My idea of a game dinner.

Substitute kebabed and grilled bison or elk roast cubes for the chickens.
I have 3 dozen metal skewers all ready to go for this one.

You don't hunt? I don't care. Bring a bottle of wine.

I haven’t hunted in over thirty years. I just stop the year my daughter was born. I figured that if I was responsible for bringing a life into this world how could I justify taking a life out of this world. I release all fish I catch. And I thank the cows that gave up it’s life so I can eat tasty beef products as for the chickens and pork not so much thanks. Although Kentucky Fried Chicken fills a void in my belly every now and then, and bacon what can you say about bacon that hasn’t already been said. Right?

Just stop Brian ...... I'm already jealous of your description of your walks in the forest and hunts and now you bring up preparing meals. Makes me wish I wasn't allergic to wine.
