    Starman i see absolutly no difference between going to the store and buying a few steaks and me going out and taking animals that were saved from extinction BY HUNTERS. deer, elk and especially pronghorn were saved from extiction because hunters wanted to be able to hunt them and for their children to be able to hunt. most all the wildlife conservation you see to day was started and is still largely funded by hunters like myself. i do everything in my power to humainly put the animal down. if you ban hunting the animals become worthless. by allowing hunting each animal is worth something. ppl spend upwards of $20,000 to hunt bighorn sheep. most of that money goes back to maintaining habitat, reaserch ect ect ect. when Kenya outlawed hunting. they lost alot of money that was going to their wildlife. poachers slaughtered the elephants because no one was interested in them. 5 tags for elephant would have paid for protecting most of the rest in the country from poaching. why? because the animals are worth $$$. you may not like it but thats the way the world works. besides ill take the hormone free elk steaks over the chemical loaded meat sold by most grocery stores today.

    In the Northeast the lack of natural predators means the whitetail deer population expands out of control which cause problems with interaction with humans as well as problems with disease and starvation within the animal population itself. Hunting for conservation reasons and proper use of the game is a way of maintaining the herds at healthy levels. Many people near me also hunt as a way to suppliment their dependence on goverment food programs and supply their family with protein through the year. I also know many hunters that hunt for the sport but are not interested in the meat so they donate it to local food shelters.

    That being said.. I am totally against people killing animals just for the heck of it in a nonresponsible manner.

    sorry Tony. i was real happy about getting the tags, and didnt take the critisim very well. i hunt mainly to put meat on the table. like i said half of my tags are for non trophy animals. most of the meat i get gets divided between my family of 4, my parents and my 3 siblings and my fiancees parents. in all actuallity im long out of wild game in the freezer by the time the next hunting season rolls around. another thing, alot of ppl in places like souther Cali and New York city who have lived there all their life really dont know what good meat is. ive been told this by friends of mine that have been treated to a "good steak" at some fancy resturaunt by family and such while out of the state visiting. the meat cant compare to good, local farm raised beef up here. that said, in all reality the quality of meat that we even get at our local Albertsons has really dropped. in fact im about done buying my meat there. instead im going to go to a local family that butchers their own cattle and pigs.

    Im sorry, I have always hated hunting, and I always will. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
    Killing animals, you might find it fun, but I find it cruel. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
    I dont know how you can go out and shoot animals, I dont know how anybody can. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] The steaks that you buy from the shop are made from animals who are bred for that, who are humanly put down, they are not scared when they die. They use those weird gun things on them, right? By the time they realise whats happening, they are dead. The animals which you hunt spend their last moments in fear and running for their lives. They are terified and in so much pain just before they die. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] I dont know how you can do such a thing, and I never will.

    never said killing an animal was fun. i take the killing of an animal very seriously. anything other than a clean quick kill is frowned appon. and infact an animal that has its self pumped up from being poorly shot generally tastes quite bad. the experiance of hunting is an absolute blast though. your out in beautiful country, seeing all kinds of critters landscapes and plants. i dont go out and shoot anything that moves.

    the taste of pronghorn varries greatly. a buck during the rut is terrible tasting. a nice dry doe however is as good as any dear. elk is also very good but some ppl dont like it. it tastes a lil "metalically" i think do to a large amount of iron in the meat. ill take most any of it over the average beef. and the real good stuff will beat the best beef any day.
