You have stumbled onto a subject that is a burr under my saddle and a source of embarrassment. Nothing the OP or other posters have said or done is wrong. What I am talking about is hunting programs on tv. When some "hunter" shoots an animal, so many giggle like a bunch of high school girls who just got their first kiss. They run and jump and laugh, and slap each other on the back.Where is the respect for the animal? I watched a well renounded hunter shoot a huge bull elk, then let him wander around in pain for quite some time till he finally died. There was limitless chances to end his suffering ,but no he wanted a one shot kill. I was embarrassed for the whole hunting community. Even though I have shot more big game than I care to admit, I still kneel down next to my harvest and give silent thanks. Seems only fitting in my opinion.
