    schloaty, yes i hunt as does my wife and my step daughters are showing lots of interest though they are to young to hunt big game in Montana, the youngest even helped me field dress one of my does this year. young deer and pronghorn does we butcher ourselves with the help of my inlaws. we are looking for steaks, a couple roasts, burger, we even make some sausage. older does and bucks generally get taken to a local place that turns them into summer sausage and salami and pepperoni sticks and such. elk, well lets just say it takes us 4 hours to butcher a 150-200 pound field dressed doe, we take the 350-400 pound cow elk to be butchered into steaks and such by a local butcher, its worth it to us paying them to do a critter that large. this year i only filled 2 of my 3 tags and my wife didnt fill any of hers. this has more to do with us just being out and enjoying the hiking than not seeing critters. we dont have enough freezer space for 6 critters but if we wanted to we could have taken that many or more if we wanted to purchase more tags. my parents take extra meat as does my sister. its not hard finding freezers willing to take the extras. venison, be it elk, deer, or pronghorn is much much leaner than beef. infact if your going to make hamburgers you have to add beef fat otherwise the patties will not stick together very well and will be very dry. the steaks of a young, dry doe or cow however is some of the best steak i have ever had.

    I'm a veggie!

    Keeping CPs has nothing to do with vegetarianism. You wouldn't move all the spiders out of your garden because they kill flies. In the same way, you wouldn't your cat locked indoors and feed it vegetarian food.

    I find it a little bizarre that we raise animals in mass quantities and slaughter them. Don't get me wrong... If I were hungry and in survival mode I would eat whatever I had to to live. I would be the last person to judge anyone's decision to eat whatever they like. I cook ribs and steaks on the grill and they smell OK (I have eaten them in the past) but I stick to eating anything other than mammals. I feel these animals have a degree of intelligence (yes, even cows) and it seems a little absurd that we raise and slaughter them. Why not dogs, cats, manatees...? I know all of these have been eaten in the past and probably still are but hey... let's farm them.

    Wow, what a dump from Dyflam. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    I keep my cats indoors...they don't belong outside. Ever. But they definitely aren't vegetarians..it is impossible for cats to get proper nutrition from a vegetarian diet.

    Dyflam, i see the point your trying to make. actually other than varmits i eat what ever i hunt. i want to hunt mountain lions iin the next few years. and the Montana Fish and Game claim mountain lion meat is fit for human consumption(as is black bear) and all meat must be taken. my brother says its some of the best meat hes had. i guess i just see things differently cause alot of my family raise cattle.
