Someone seems to have kidnapped all the deer as I didn't see a single one during the entire opening weekend of bow hunting. ;-)

The actual (good) news is that the Collatz server had no outages while I was busy this past weekend. That's a welcome relief from the troubles last year although the real test starts Friday when I leave for vacation since the Slicker-sitter is not a system admin and I won't have Internet access for most of the time I am away.

I have heard that the deer have a calendar and KNOW when the season opens and know that is the time to catch up on some sleep. ;-)))

Ahh but doing it yourself can give one the same pleasure as growing your vegetables in your own garden! The thrill of the getting the ground ready, the planting of the seeds, the constant care of watering and weeding, keeping the rodents and other bugs away, then watching as they mature and produce flowers that then grow into the edible fruits that we put on our table. All of that is comparable to going out and stalking and bringing home your own meat. In fact getting your own meat can be a much more personal experience because the 'meat' has a mind of its own and is determined to NOT be caught and taken home by you. Whereas the vegetables are kind on stuck on the vine and while the wind can move them around, they don't seem to be able to do it on their own. Snap a twig in the woods and you will probably lose all of your time spent finding a suitable target. Snapping a twig in the garden can be a good thing, it can be used for staking the plants so they grow better.

I agree with you, this World has allowed for FAR TOO LONG the willy nilly any old way killing of its feed stock! It is time for the World to set up a set of standards that is as 'humane' as possible. Unfortunately for some people there are those that will always eat meat, and there will always be 'farmers' growing that food source. MOST people that go out hunting learn to do it cleanly and the animal dies fast or they learn they have to track a wounded animal for hours or miles! I can tell you that that is NO FUN and lessens the 'fun' of hunting!

Or, ofcourse the reasoning of someone who doesn't see the difference between a dog and a deer :) I'm quite certain both would taste delicious, but imagine the public outcry if i shoot a deer...

<- one of those nasty vegetarians :P

I hear in Asian Countries dog is pretty good. I have been to Spain and had horse meat and it was pretty good as a burger! I had no idea it was horse until they told me after I had eaten half of it, kind of like when I ate cow tongue as a kid, delicious but don't ask what it is!

Yeah quite a stigma too! But let me tell you if I am stuck out there with no food and no way to get home and I run across a dead person, they are food if I have no other choices!! I will at least be alive to have genetic problems!! That soccer team in the Andes lived to play another day because of it! Now as 'regular everyday' food, not for me thanks, I hear we are too salty!! AND there are waaaaay too many other choices, and they are DELICIOUS!!

Don't worry about one or two people it takes years of canibalism before it afect them.
I've never been in that sitution and hope it does not happen but i think i would do the same as you
