DF has that same mentality about his kids. If he wants to teach them to hunt, I'm perfectly ok with it, long as I don't have to eat it (tho I'd prolly choke down a mouthful of deer that one of my kids killed just cause that's what mommies do.)

Thanks. Mostly what I do with deer meat because sometimes it is too gamey is I grind every bit up into 1lb packages of "hamburger meat". I then just use it year round for stuff like spaghetti, lasagna, chili, tacos (mmmmmmm). When I grind it up like that it doesn't have that gamey taste to me and there is no fat whatsoever when I cook it. I don't even have to drain it after.

And I will say I have never had a deer get back up yet (one shot, one kill). I do kill them instantly. I do cry afterwards also because I did take a life. It's VERY hard to pull the trigger. I don't go after trophy bucks for my wall. I go after a large deer whether it be a doe or a buck. I even thank my God for the food he has provided me after the kill.

Fishing: I do enjoy that for sport. I usually do catch and release unless I start catching a bunch of good size fish in a short amount of time.

Turkey hunting: I bag two of them a year and they are for the table.

Duck hunting: don't care to do, I prefer skeet to that

rabbit/small animals: no, too much work for too little meat

I wish I could muster up the courage to keep a garden going and I would be totally self-sufficient but hey that's what Costco is for.

Maybe Michelle would like to go hunting with me, I promise not to go all Dick Cheney on her

I've never done catch and release unless we happened to catch a Salmon and you have to toss those back if you don't have a license. I am very sensitive to metals in food (sometimes even Beef is too much for me) so most wild River Fish from where I live aren't on my menu. I choke down Salmon strictly because I adore Atlantic Salmon. But we tend to stick to ocean fish (probably because my family is or was all fisherman at one time or another and that's where the food came from lol).

I am looking forward to gardening. Gonna can tomatoes for use year round in sauces, make my own pickled beets and enjoy fresh produce during the summer, and of course DF wants to hunt so when he takes a pay cut to stop travelling for work, he can have meat with every meal and not fret over the price as much. Of course I'll even get a hunting permit and such so we can hopefully get two, and then only be buying beef for when I'm eating the same meal, since I survive off of chicken (and we plan on buying bulk free range chickens that I can cut up and freeze).

I'm very snobbish when it comes to food myself, but at least I understand WHY people do what they do. If someone brought me chicken with no head but covered in feathers, I'd probably never eat one again. lol. But I'm one of those people who doesn't like to have to work on food too much (I call it playing with my food) prior to cooking. I can't even shell my own lobster or I won't eat it. lol.

My uncle hunts and taught his son to hunt and fish like a pro. He wants to teach my son too. I'm never going to kill something myself (I have accidently killed some of the fish I've caught), but I can tell you that hunting isn't something "trashy" or something to be ashamed of at all.

It has lots of benefits. You have food and it controls the population of deer so they aren't roaming down our highways ready to jump out and most likely seriously damage your car or hurt you.

My uncle also hunts deer and will have it cleaned and cut up and donate it to the poor. He has more than anyone needs, but he shares it and doesn't kill for nothing.

I have a huge problem with people that stereotype. Huge.
