Shoot or Shoot???

Sunday, November 22, 2009

As I sit here writing this blog entry, I am hearing gun shots that are very close by!!! I have been married to my husband for 41 years and he has been hunting for more years than that. I have nothing against him hunting. I say nothing against him hunting. We used to eat alot of venison, but now, with the scare of Chronic Wasting Disease, neither of us cares to anymore. When my husband shoots a deer, he takes it to a locker where it is processed and given to the local food pantry, so it DOES NOT go to waste. I prefer to "Shoot" my deer with a camera.

    My sentiments exactly. My nephew was taken game hunting on a farm at the young age of 13. He was thrilled at the night ride on the back of the 4x4. He loved the excitement of tracking the animal. But when it came to looking through the site and seeing the buck stare straight back at him, he decided this sport was not for him. To this day he won't even eat venison.
    But food is food for those who need it. I have eaten guinea fowl...bit tough and blue, but my in-laws used to catch these little things and cook them regularly. Ugh, I like to buy my meat all cut up and not resembling the original product...I'm the all time coward!

    I too would prefer to "shoot" my deer with a camera, and do that quite often. For us venison makes up a lot of our diet, makes great sausage and the grandchildren LOVE the jerky. You are definitely putting your venison to a very good use. The hunter still gets to hunt and others share in the bounty.
