I only hunt for meat. I will not hunt lions and bears unless they move on me first. All other antelopes and ungulates are fair game.

When I was younger I would hunt and kill anything legal I had a license for.I did alot of small game hunting and would eat what I killed.I was constantly trying to learn as much as I could about deer hunting and shot my first deer at 16.As I've grown older(44) the deer hunting has become my main focus while in the woods.I have killed over 60 deer over the years and I eat all of it,I love venison and if it's legal it's going for a ride in the truck.

I killed a bear in 2000 and even though I ate every last piece of the meat I will never kill another one.It was a once in a lifetime thing I've done but don't feel the need to kill another bear.

I killed a moose in 2007 and I hope I get to experience another moose hunt in my lifetime.It is the best meat I have ever eaten.

I killed a 7x7 bull elk this past year and after the kill I felt terrible for killing such a beautifull animal.Even though that's why I was there it just made me feel "wrong" killing it.I will probably never elk hunt again and again my reason is personal.

"...Feral cats, no mercy there..." I'd be hard pressed to kill any cat. Feral or otherwise. It was hard enough having to put down a pet. Cats are the consumate animal. Domestic cats can hunt and kill then stay on your death bed for months except to eat and defecate.
In any case, Kitty that's out and about isn't necessarily feral.

I agree, but detrimental to native wildlife just the same...

You nailed it absolutely spot on, mate, short, sweet & to the point exactly

+1 on Giraffes, elephants and 'trophy' animals.... just because you can isn't a reason to kill anything IMO :barf:

For some reason, I could never shoot a cat or a kitten. I guess since we got our kitty I've gotten soft....

We can not shoot wolfs in Michigan. No season on them, if we could I think a bunch or us would bring them back to where they were at about thirty years ago here. Coyote no problem. Game animals to eat during legal season no problem. Just to kill anything no.
