    I?ve been hunting since age 5. Love the freedoms, solitude, and being with nature, by being out of doors. I love the challenge of the hunt, and love the food provided with a successful hunt. And last, but not least.....it brings back memories of those moments I shared as a child, with those that are now passed. When I am out hunting, they are there with me! memtb

    sure it 's the challenge and getting out in the outdoors.

    I eat WHAT I hunt , but if truth was told , I would be better off financially to simply go to the grocery store. same can be said of growing a garden.


    but let's face it home grown veggies and wild game , taste better then the swill stores sell.




    plus , I hunt to keep my skills sharp for the day society crumbles and there are no longer stores to shop in.


    I do not kill simply for the enjoyment of it but the truth is , men are not as enlightened or "civilized" as they wish for all to believe. hunting is one of the few activities there is to embrace our true nature.
    all this is true and I have no desire to please the PC crowd.

    I hunt because I DO enjoy killing stuff and will not cower in shame because of it.


    those who hunt and claim otherwise are lying to themselves.


    why do they do so??? because society has instilled in them a sense of shame for embracing their true nature.

    I’m with you Kid. I do enjoy the kill for some reason. If I couldn’t hunt I wouldn’t spend the time in the woods that I do. There’s a difference between hiking around and hunting. I don’t kill as much as I used to but I have intentions of doing so every time I go in the woods with weapon in hand, it’s a great feeling when I’m in that mode.

    yeah ,I get it. hunting is fun.

    with getting up early, often freezing, walking for miles , uphill both ways, and then if you actually kill something the real work begins. I just never thought of it as relaxing.

    satisfying yes. relaxing no.

    Like it was in primitive man, the instinct and drive to hunt is in me. I sharpened sticks to make spears and arrows when I was less than 5 years old. I would hunt chipmunks and squirrels with those until I got a BB gun. Now I hunt for meat and for the challenge. I don’t play or watch any sports, so I need something to keep me entertained. We eat primarily wild game and fish, and we take great pride in consistently bringing home our own food.
    Live to hunt, hunt to live.

    I enjoy hunting - birds, small game, big game are all different and fun. I eat what I kill, often don't kill anything but enjoy watching what goes on around me.

    I like to fish too. Same thing - catch to eat, not as much into the catch & release thing.

    Always something going on - I deer hunted 5 days this year, got 3. Hunted ducks 2 days, got 0. Worked a lot and fished some of the other weekends cause the ducks just aren't here this year.

    Hoping to get pulled for one of them western tags for 2019. Be able to touch the stars, watch diff kinds of birds, see things I haven't seen before, and live life a little fuller. Looking forward to it. Maybe will get permit and maybe get to make that shot. Hoping.
