I know that some charities won't accept venison if it's in an area with chronic wasting disease going around. It's definitely worth checking into, though! :)

Quoting MamaJess9:

Idk where you live, but in Illinois there is a program that will give the meat to soups kitchens, food pantries, and needy families.

Thats all fine... why darken her post? Shes teaching her dd how to provide for herself as well as hunter safety. Its sad two little ones died, but if we put our kids in a bubble our society will grind to a halt and we will go nowhere. Our kids deserve better than that!


Quoting Anonymous:

How can it be good that I've known two kids that were killed in hunting accidents?

One was accidentally shot and killed by her grandfather :(

Another was killed several years ago and his brother really grieved for him and did not like being an only child. Actually he just had a baby and named him after his deceased brother.

I'm not against hunting though but its just  not for me.


Quoting KedrynsMommie:

Good for you sanctimommy!



Now move along to the next thread :p!

Just tell me you will use virtually every part of the animal AND respect the life that was taken and I will not object. 

OK?

Yeah, I remember hearing something about that last year. I just looked it up, it's called Sportsmen Against Hunger and you just take the deer to the processor and tell them you want to donate it, they do the rest. That way it's all in a controlled environment, so maybe that helps with that? I don't really know because we rarely use processors, we always do our own.

We don't hunt for sport, we hunt for food. We're always thankful for the land, opportunity, & animals provided on earth for survival. :)

Then I'm cool with it (even though I'm a vegetarian!) I would be more impressed if she took it down with one arrow though. Guns to me are kind of cheating or something.

She will eventually become strictly a bow hunter.

DH & I are strictly bow hunters, because the season allows nicer weather & better deer.

We start the kids in the family with gun hunting, because it teaches skills, but allows adults to be close by to manage the situation. We also believe that gun safety is important for everyone, before learning bow skills.

Once we feel that she is skilled in gun hunting & understands safety & such, we will slowly introduce her to bow hunting. I (personally) skipped the gun hunting, because guns scare me. :/ Well, more-so my own clumsiness scares me. LOL! I fully trust my DH & his grandpa to educate my kids on gun safety, though. It's just not something I'm interested in. :)

Regular bow or cross bow?

I went to some archery practices long ago (inanimate targets only.) I enjoyed it. I am apprehensive about firearms as well.
