Sun I appreciate your questions and comments. Its just how you have been raised and how I have been raised. Its nice that you have an open mind about it.Yeah...the pic's of shooting the ducks almost on the water is like "cheating"... I by no means am a naturalist however, when it comes to all the foxes you've shot, what do you do with them? Can I assume you use/sell the pelts? I doubt you eat the meat......mmm, taste like...........dog?
To answer some questions every bird you see here was eaten.
99% of the meat we eat is wild game. (Some buy there meet from the store. Others earn theirs, if you don't kill your meet for the year you just wasted thousands of dollars and now have to spend thousands at the store)
As far as shooting at the ducks almost on the water. These ducks fly at 50-60 mph about 2' off the water. Also if you think its cheating you haven't tried duck hunting. If you can fool a bird enough to land in your decoys then you have accomplished alot. Anyone can shoot at them passing by. (Pass shooting). (Just for chuckle I have taken guys and watch as they shot 250 shells only to kill 25 birds its by no means easy.)
As far as the foxes and coyotes these pelts were sold. (They carry to many diseases to eat)(Heck you have to be very careful just handling them. They carry some bad shiot) Now you wanna know why they were shot? They were killing little dogs and cats on farms and ranches. When people have Fluffy or Rover eaten they don't seem to like those foxes and coyotes much anymore.
