    I either eat the game I kill or give it to a needed family that will eat it. Most of the trophy hunters I know donate all their meat; I don't think many trophy hunters cut the head off and leave the animal in the field. Illegal in most states I've hunted. I don't eat the one or two coyotes I kill per year either. When I used to run a trapline, I'd shoot whatever was in the trap, but I never ate the possums or coons.

      I hunt meat! Not for horns and ego! If I won't eat it I don't kill it! I don't believe in killing just for pleasure!

          i have been fishing to eat something good at school lately, may be over my yearly mercury allowance for the year... I always eat the venison, birds I shoot. I give away quite a bit, people know that i am a hunter and i always offer up the small game like rabbits or squirrels, just not my favorite thing to eat. I have never left any animal i've killed in the woods and I never will.

            Well PigHunter, Hi, my name is Pete, and you just met someone who eats what they kill! And NO, I don't eat spiders or mosquitos.. I just don't believe in killing animals for no reason other than the fact that you can.. If you have to kill something for your own personal thrill at least donate the meat!
            And I'm not talking about defending your property or crops or anything of that nature. I'm just saying I don't aggree with loading a gun and walking into the woods just to shoot something and let it lay. That's why they invented TARGETS!

              Eat what you kill is what I was taught! Unless it's something like yotes or problem animals like a skunk or beaver or armadillo. I know some people like armadillo but for some reason it just doesn't sound that great to me!

                If you kill it, you eat it.

                  Trophy hunters who don't eat what they kill make our sport look bad. Sure, everyone wants the biggest buck, fish, ect. but we also eat the meat!

                      Happy,
                      The country store where we bought our groceries on Sat. night also has chicken, horse, and hog feed too. The guy had a wooden barrel in the back where the feed was and only during a certain time of the year that he kept salt fish in. I remember taking the big fork hanging on the post and getting 3 big salt fish out of the barrel. It was just Mom, Dad and I so we just got 3. We only ate salt fish for breakfast. That was one of the treats of the year. Did you ever drink Postum ? It was sort of a substitute for coffee sort of a cross between coffee and hot chocolate. You can't find it now. We stocked up on ammunition one time a year.

                        Sarge01, you can find Postum in the Buffalo N. Y. area even today in a few stores. I know of older folks from the South enjoy it and a few older locals too. I'm a black coffee (no sugar)guy but one day I'll try it.

                          Sarge,
                          Postum, brings back even more memories. As I recall less expensive than coffee.

                            It was less expensive. My Grandma always kept it sitting on the kitchen table. I remembered as a young kid it was a treat to go to Grandma's and get to drink it.

                              If I don't eat it, I don't kill it. Unless of course I give meat or fish to a friend or family member.

                                we've always eaten what we kill except for crows, coyotes, and prairie dogs.
