In a rare event, I am completely in agreement with Jim Bennett's well-articulated position, even though I am not myself a hunter.

I concur. The key word is "responsible". I've never been a fan of "trophy" hunting, because I fail to see the purpose other than sport. Hunting for sustenance or to make use of the kill makes alot more sense. Having said that, I too am guilty of hunting back in the day merely for the sport of it, or for bragging rights - and I am not fond of the memories.

I have harvested a considerable number of buck deer in the past 50 years. I own only the first little set of antlers I harvested, which I use for rattling. The rest I have given away or cut up for Boy Scout Neckerchief slides. I'd rather eat a squirrel or a rabbit personally. Rather hunt them too.

I dunno Dave. I like Rabbit, but not fond of Squirrel. Now a nice Venison roast or a dutch oven stew? Yum.

Hi: Iowa Dave... Can't say I like hare in my stew. I've caught lots of "Black & white kittys in the live trap. Treat them real tender and you can get away odour free!!! WHEW. Alf

I'm curious, is the picture shown in the avatar raw deer meat or cooked, looks awfully rare.

Ride of the Valkyries

My son Clay and I were hunting wabbits at the familwy farm when we got checked by the Game Warden. He opened his twenty question routine with "Do yo have permission to hunt here"? I started with "Mom says it's o.k." From there Clay came from around the big bales singing Kill the Wabbit, kill the Wabbit. Like he was an opera singer. The warden ended up not even asking for our licenses and left in his pickup laughing at having met two snow crazed Bohemie wabbit hunters. I've dealt with my share os pepe' la pews over the years, civit cats too.
Them guys running around at Niagara Falls brought back memories.

Jim,
It's raw venison.
Just started cooking it and snapped a picture to show a friend who is very fond of deer meat.

fwiw, my ad blocker program will "zap" any little ol' avatar that may or may not offend. Of course, you do have to see it once....


Emile, you do what I can't/won't. Enjoy the Earth's bounty.
