I dont hunt but I like to shoot guns(very rarely tho). I have friends who practically live to hunt!. I also benefit from their hunting as they will give me deer meat, wild hogs, and wild turkeys.But, as for me,I dont have the heart to hunt. I remember, as a teenager, shooting turtles(Hundreds of 'em!) just to kill them...Just for the thrill. I look back and REALLY REGRET doing this!
Now fishing is what I can do!...From start to finish!..From making the lures, to catching, to cleaning, and then on to cooking and eating them! And I'm GOOD at it!(humbly speaking, of course)
But, as I tell lots of people.....If the fish laid on the floor of the boat, With their eyes following my movements in the boat or while I'm sliding them around getting ready to fillet them...or they made crying sounds or something like that,.....I wouldnt be able to fish.
Imagine, 100 fish all doing this stuff.........Luckily, for the sake of my own conscience fish arent like this, so i fish, and do good!
I had chickens once and ate the eggs. But one day a dog came and killed all of my chickens in one setting...Even "Henny Penny" a little white banty who would sit in our laps while we sat out on the
I have pigeons now, and when i have to thin them out occasionally I'll tear out their breast(like people do with dove) and eat them, just so I dont feel like their life was wasted.
Anyways,...Thats just the way I am! :)
