I suppose you would use the standard argument that deer, around here anyway, dont have much natural predation and that the herd, unchecked, could would increase at nearly an exponential rate until damage to crops, overbrowsing, disease ect sets in.

Or, how about that I just plain enjoy it?

Because I can :cheers:


Population control would be my answer, and plus the meat has a better taste to it knowing that I or someone I know has harvested it ;)

Ask em if they've hit any deer recently and if they say they haven't then tell em their welcome ;)

Did that---but remember this person didn't want a real answer--they simply want to belittle a hunter in front of some other people!:cheers:

My response, provided it is a woman;

"Yes ma'am. Since I have the ablility to do so myself, I believe it is sanctimonious to ask the butcher to do my killing for me. How do you feel about that?"

When someone is using faulty logic, don't tell them what your position is, make them defend theirs!

it gives me great reward to be self sustaining. I can grow it, and harvest it. I can stalk, and humanely dispatch an animal and use it as god had intended. I am very careful in how I handle my taken game wether it be fish , foul, small game, or large game. I know exactly what I am getting. From a health standpoint, there are not the chemicals that are present in todays market meat.

The animals I have harvested ahve had a range free life. The beef or pork you got at the grocery store has been kept in a pen and had to stand in feces all his life.


It is a chioce... And mine is to do what our Glorious Father gave us the ability to do.

I most often get a guilty look responce on the ppl who asked me the question and htey slink away with out uterring any ohter words.

Because I like to rely on myself.....

Then its my own fault if I starve or not....

''Oh honey that butcher has enough to do without worrying his little head about feeding me.'':D

Why? Because I'm afraid that if I start relying on the butcher for my meat then I'll start relying on the government for my healthcare and retirement. It just ain't happenin.
