I understand that this seems barbaric in many ways Bo. I think the difference is point of view. In my minds eye, I am a part of nature and the food chain. I do not believe that my existence is problematic for the earth and the environment if I act responsibly.
I have secured 100lbs of very healthful lean meat for myself and my family. I have done my part to help control the deer herd and maintain a healthy sustainable deer population. I have protected myself and in the mean time provided a Russian with a warm hat, or coat, or whatever. I've fed the woodland carnivores and even provided a calcium source for the mice of the field. I imagine its difficult to understand how a man can do this and then go home and pet his dog and put birdfeed in the feeder. Its about my place in nature I guess.
