Not a flame contest by a "Dutch School Girl who hugs a tree" but a real honest to God question.
I grew up in the woods and swamps, so I've always been outdoors. Hunting was just a natural extension of a boy's life in my neck of the woods.
Now that I am older I feel that being in the woods hunting gives me a chance to be closer to nature. To be part of the life cycle of nature.
(This does sound like tree hugging crap.)
Anyway also I feel that selective thinning of the wildlife will keep animals from becoming over-populated, thus keeping nature in check with itself.
What do think, and why do you hunt?
