Anybody never eating "store-bought" meat? :)

Just knowing how those critters are raised, kept and slaughtered, oh my, I would rather skip out on meat again like I used to for years - but my Master wanting me to learn to hunt which is an essential skill for survival (add to it the critters you can have in your homestead) if I have to choose I choose to eat animals having a happy life over those poor tortured creatures!!!

I eat what we get at the store, I would have considered learning to hunt for it myself until I read P'Gell's post on another thread about hunting. I'd rather just go vegetarian if the grocery stores and butcher shops ever close down.

I've had both. For a short time I worked in a butcher shop, thankfully the meat came in mostly cut down.

We buy meat from the store and my husband/son hunts venison during hunting season. We process our own venison.

I hunt, I work on a farm and we raise and some times slaughter our cows, and I eat it from the store.

Since my Uncle use to be a butcher and in business for himself, I have always bought round steak or sirloin steak and grind my own meat. Since it it USDA Prime, I am quite safe in the product.

I buy it from the store! The thing is that it is a less 'ethical' way of living, but it's a LOT safer than eating caught meats and results in a much healthier lifestyle. I think that in one of your previous threads like this P'gell wrote out a really great response. Off to find it...

EDIT: Found her post on this discussion that is very similar to this one you started:

"Nope. I have a grocery store near my house. I don't see the point of killing animals, risking parasites and getting all icky. No thanks.

A cousin of my husband's killed his own deer, bear and fish. He got very VERY sick and it was found that he had 40 times the amount of allowed mercury in his system from the fish and the bear, who also eat the fish (he had to have chelation to rid his body of this poison) and he had several different kinds of intestinal parasites from the bear and the deer, which required very dangerous insecticides to be taken internally to rid his body of them. He and his brother nearly died and every member of their family had to go through horrible medical procedures to get well again. At one point, before they were diagnosed, they gave us deer meat and "bear sausage" which went directly into the garbage can. Being in health care, I have a different take on this. I don't think wild meat is healthy. It's not only loaded with much more chemicals (like mercury) than farmed meat, but it has parasites that you don't see in farmed meat anymore. Progress has it's advantages. Safer meat is one of them.

If it works for you, more power to you, but it isn't for me in the least. "

I ain't no hunter and I don't know any ranchers, so I HAVE to buy my meat from the stores.
