    The one thing that most of these shows miss is the part of what we do with what we've shot after the kill. Most just mention it, if at all. Just lots of OOING & AWING at the trophy and maybe a mention of what great eating it will make.

    I was brought up that the whole point of hunting was to supplement the families food supply. We ate everything we took. The only exception was an occasional coyote or other predator. There are a couple of shows that spend some time with that aspect which I really like. I believe that if more non hunters knew that we were really not just after the horns, we could benefit our passion a lot. I host a big dinner at one of our annual cowboy shoots for some of our friends and fellow shooters using fish & game I have taken. I usually cook up some chili (using whatever I have (this year antelope), make some chicken fried steak (this year it will be antelope loin) and a wild hog ham on a spit over the BBQ. I also have goose jerky and will make some catfish ceviche. Most of the wives who have not tasted wild meat before just love it.

    Sometime we do ourselves a disfavor just focusing on the killing aspect. The campfire comradare, fellowship and family atmosphere are really what it's all about for me.
