mmmmmmm wild birdies!!!!!!!!I'm going to pull some grouse out of the freezer for dinner tonight - When I'm done eating I'm going to sit on the couch, drink beer and feel shame.
We could always do something to get the predators back in action as well. Not really going to happen, tho, as they are a dangerous nuisance and, let's face it, competition.Sure it would be nice if natural predators could handle game populations, but since humans have decimated the predators, we have the responsibility as stewards of this earth to take over in maintaining the balance. Not to mention that the animals are there for our responsible use in the first place...
Absolutely we can get drunk, feel shame, pass out and in the morning have some of the bear steaks my uncle brought me and than start all over againmmmmmmm wild birdies!!!!!!!!
Can I come over and feel shame with you? I'll bring some venison mole'.
For some reason I feel like this thread needs this pic.
It depends on the bear, it's age and what they have been sustaining themselves on. I would describe it as a bit greasier, sweeter and more gamey than venison. It makes a great stew...Oh my god, I've never had bear, what's it like???
That's my take on it. I'm definitely not a fan of factory farms, or some of the associated problems with them. The few animal products I eat have either been kept and milked humanely (goat's milk) or are wild and were killed by one shot (or one shot with my bow) or removed from the water by my fishing rod and also killed quickly. I don't shoot at any animal I'm not intending to eat. I don't fill my freezer, I just take enough for my family's food supply.It's much easier to eat something that you killed yourself. At least I know what kind of conditions it was living in and that it wasn't rolling around in it's own **** 24/7.
Even in areas with significant predators, you still have a boom/bust cycle that leads to animals on the street, etc.We could always do something to get the predators back in action as well. Not really going to happen, tho, as they are a dangerous nuisance and, let's face it, competition.
I feel much more satisfied eating something I've killed, cleaned and cooked myself. I know a lot of people that don't feel this way, tho, people who can't kill a fly. They still eat meat. Except the vegans...but they have bigger problems, like unhealthy lifestyles and methane emissions
Ask the dumbfack if he knows how many "soys" gave their lives to become that "burger"...I've had those conversations with the anti-hunters before; fairly recently actually. The hippocrit meat-eaters really piss me off. It usually goes something like this:
"have you ever been to a slaughterhouse?"
"so you KNOW that the cow you got the steak from was humanely killed and didn't feel one bit of pain or suffering?"
"I don't take a shot unless it's humane and will quickly kill the animal. Ever. Can you say that about your New York Strip?"
It's easy to bite into a burger when you don't have to think about where it came from.
