Thrill of the chase is sitting over a feeder. I don't think you understand the concept...
Some folks, for whatever reason, are less able or willing to do as much chasing as others.

Quote:
One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted...If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job.


-Jose Ortega y Gasset, Meditations on Hunting
Some people have different "extras" than others, I guess......

Me, maybe I'm not a true "Sportsman", as I will not refuse a perfectly good dead deer if it were given to me, but I enjoy planning the hunt, walking in before daybreak, listening to the world come alive.... I'll try for my own, as well!
