We do fully support the right of folks to hunt, though, and we do understand the problem with owning property and nuisance animals. For instance, our neighborhood forest is so badly over-browsed due to the lack of deer hunting, that our forest is not healthy. We get such pleasure from watching the deer in our yard, though, that we couldn't bear to shoot one.
Although I don't hunt I'm the first one on your doorstep after you have harvested a deer. I don't have a problem eating what others have killed.

We get version from friends that hunt, too. Haven't lost my taste for a good cut of venison.

Donna's dad hated me when we were dating. When we got married he bought me a shotgun. We went coyote hunting and he gave me the best spot and told me where they would be coming from. He called up three coyotes in three different places and I got all three. He said he had only gotten three in one day twice in his life. After that I was okay. That was in the winter of 74/75 and I haven't hunted since.

Makes perfect sense to me. I miss everything about hunting, except for that part.

Other than running out of venison burger and buying beef burger a couple of times I haven't bought any beef since 1993. I enjoy watching them but I like to eat them as well. The only year I didn't get at least one deer was two years ago as I got real picky and waited for the big buck that never showed up. I had two in the freezer from the year before and didn't want to have it get all freezer burn. I gave away the last of it last fall after I got my buck.

Love to hunt. We eat what we shoot except for some pesky varmints.
As for fishing we catch and release Small Mouth Bass. Walleye we catch and eat.

Walleyes are a fine eating fresh water fish. The only fresh water fish I like better are landlocked salmon.
