aducksbutt-deactivated20131125 asked: People these days. You post pictures of legally obtained game and they freak out. I hunt and obtain as much wild game as possible. Rather eat that then processed food everywhere. Fistful of ducks *thumbs up*
Thanks Kingmax91. I’m glad you hunt. The problem with those people who condemn hunters as “sadists” or otherwise try and vilify us, is that they are good people trying to express their love of wildlife.
They miss the fact that hunters are also good people, who love wildlife passionately and contribute millions of dollars to conservation each year through conservation groups such as Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, Rocky Mountain Elk foundation, Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership and many others. The money generated through the simple act of buying guns and ammo (through the Piitman Robertson Act) also contributes to Wildlife restoration and conservation. To claim that someone who hunts hates nature is very deluded and sad.
Ultimately, we all want the same thing, to Keep the wild places wild and to have healthy populations of wild creatures living in said wild places.
haggard3732 asked: Hey what benelli do you use for waterfowl?
I use a Benelli Super Black Eagle 2 and have paired it with a patternmaster choke. My favorite cartridge is the Winchester Blindside. Put it all together and it’s a formidable combination.
A hand full o’ ducks or as I like to call it, dinner.
You just killed about 12 perfectly intelligent beings for pleasure. Don’t tell me you killed to eat because you are not starving. You are a sadist. These animals have families, belong in a community, and have well functioning culture. Congratulations for degrading humanity.
I dare you to reblog.
Read the comments above.
They neatly illustrate the dichotomy between subsistence hunting in Alaska and living an urban lifestyle in Chicago. Taking the life of any animal or bird is a terrible responsibility and one that as an industrial society we have delegated. We can now walk into a supermarket and purchase prepackaged meat without having to think about the animals that died to provide it. That I choose to stay connected to my food does not degrade my humanity, it celebrates it.

The digital camo actually looks pretty good this time of year.
Thanks for your concern everyone. Freyja got stabbed in the foot while training yesterday. Lots of blood and a frantic visit to vet concluded with her having partially severed the tendons in her foot but not the arteries! She’s laid up for 6 weeks but she’ll be fine. Eventually. Until then if anyone has any ideas on how to keep a pup amused for 6 weeks that don’t involve exercise please let me know!
