I have always eaten what I kill.But'I don't have a problem with a hunter doing the work required to find and harvest a trophy animal as long as it is not a canned hunt.I have a real problem with somebody paying to be led to trophy after which he pulls a rifle out and shoots it.I fail to see any reward in that.

I also have no problem with Trophy hunting. Outside a high fence area and even inside for the most part, you work your butt off or you pay a lot of money for a guide who has already worked his butt off on your behalf.

I do not believe in wasting meat from a big game animal excluding bear or a hog if you believe hogs are big game. There are lots of places to give the meat away to people who really appreciate the food.

I'm 73 years old. I guess all my halfway thoughtful life, I've known better than the immorality of wasting food.

That poll's not worth the waste of bandwidth. Anybody voted in favor of wasting the meat, I'd ban him anyway...
