Smartdude- If you want to bring home the meat, you’d better get up
Seriously, though, the best time to chase the whitetails has been the afternoon in my experience.
I’ve been getting up at 4:45 the past two weeks (except on Sundays) to chase the crows out of my great grandfather’s crops. I only got four of the bandits, though
Hairy- This sounds crude, but after you first kill one of the smarter animals (deer, turkey, crow) then you can’t get enough of the outdoors. That’s the way its been for me, at least. I was overly reluctant to get up at 4:something in the morning for my first turkey hunt, but now I get up the instant that I wake up.
I’ve gotten some nice Bucks in my day. Also got some nice fat Turkeys. I also believe if they die quickly and are used as food its not wasteful. Thats why I believe cannibalism should be grounds for lienency in murders.
Do you eat chicken?
Briolers only get to eat fishfood and sometimes they get stuck in their small boxes, and they get deformed. THAT is cruel.
Do you eat cows or pigs?
Have you ever seen how they live?
If I shoot something to get food, just like we always have done where I live… is that a bad thing? Monkeys eat each other and wolves eat our pets. Is that cruel?
Sharks tend to take a bit of humans sometimes to see how we taste. Is that cruel?
Vegetarians and vegans are destrying big forrest areas, just so they can plant potatoes and carrots. Because of that, the animals move closer to us and sometimes try to eat us. Is that cruel?
Everytime you eat meat, think of the animal that lived a shitty life just so that you could eat it. Would’nt it be better to eat a healthy animal that lived a rich life, eating all that it could and had the chance to reproducing a couple of times?
I’m not torturing them, I’m killing them. That is a big difference. Most of the time they will not feel any pain at all.
Nice to see that some people have some understanding around here.
Although I don’t know about the cannibalism thing. I mean, if there is a body there and it is an emergency, eat it, but don’t kill someone for it. I assume that is what you meant, but…
Also, if you kill something and leave it, it WILL get eaten. I can promise those crows I shot filled out some fox’s belly nicely. That is, he’ll have food until he catches my bullet (the neighbor keeps chickens, need I explain?)
Omega- Good to hear that you’ve had success. This year has been my first serious year of hunting, and I have killed a nice 18.5 pound tom with a 10.5 inch beard and 15/16" and 1" spurs, plus several crows. I’ve killed enough squirrells that I can’t keep track of them. In years before, I’ve killed a small whitetail buck, which I shot it for a doe in low light. Had it been day, I would have let him go.
Edit: Do you know how when you shoot a turkey, it will flop around no matter how it is hit? Well, my father went to finish off the turkey I shot (i.e. by putting its head in the notch of the boot and pulling on the legs to break the neck) and pulled his head off. The dang thing bled so much it might’ve been 19 pounds alive (coming from my dad)
Shoots Dick Cheny Sorry! Aiming for the Fox behind you thats now eating your entrails. Anyway I have a freind thats a full vegetarian. She only eats the Fruits and Vegetables she grows on her property and doesn’t eat meat or fish. Once I accidently shot at a cat. I killed the Turkey but the cat went running. I still don’t know why he was in the woods…
