Children learning to hunt! Updated to add two more reasons.
I think it is absurd that so many people think eating wild game and/or teaching children to hunt is such an awful thing. There are so many benefits to it. Both for the child and the family.
1. Using a firearm/bow safely and hunting are very useful skills. Not only will someone be able to feed themselves and other people if it becomes necessary, they will also be able to defend themselves and others safely if needed.
2. The women on here are always bashing women for feeding their families "junk." Well, there is nothing more organic than wild game that you hunt, kill and process yourself. It's incredibly healthy with no steroids, hormones or antibiotics. My sister, cousins and I grew up on wild game and farm animals and not one of us entered puberty/started our periods before 12 years old. Our bodies weren't tricked into becoming women at seven because of our food.
3. Everyone on here is so big on supplementing food budgets and saving money. Eating wild game saves us thousands a year in our food budget. In my freezer right now is venison, duck, turkey, squirrel, catfish, bass, boar and frog legs. None of it purchased from a store. I've also at one time or another had rattlesnake, turtle, alligator, bear, elk and other things in there.
4. Kids taught firearm safety and hunting at a young age are less likely to kill someone with a gun than kids who only see guns on TV and in movies. They understand how dangerous firearms can be.
Update: At the request of other members here are two more benefits:
5. Conservation. If certain animals were not hunted then their populations would grow so large that they would overrun us. Many of them would starve. I know in certain areas there are so many wild boars that they don't even really have a season anymore and no limits on how many you can get.
6. Exercise. Walking, climbing, tracking, running are all good forms of exercise. And depending on the game you are hunting you might end up doing all of them.
