I grew up in a hunting family too. My Dad taught me how to clean fish and birds. I have harvested fish, deer, partridge, and turkey (nice one a couple of weeks ago). I am grateful for the meat and feel thankful for the opportunity that is provided and don't necessarily relish the killing part. I take great care in being properly prepared to make a humane kill, I owe it to the game I hunt. I respect the animals that are taken and try to use as much of the animal as I can so as not to waste any of the "gift".
You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes
