Yes I hunt and I eat what I kill it helps the area with over population of the animals.

No. I couldn't kill an animal, I'm just being honest. (I did have to drown a bird once who broke her neck flying into the glass back of our house. It was horrible and traumatized me.) I KNOW animals are killed to feed my omnivorous diet, but doing it myself it just not something I could do. We pay other people to do a LOT of things we can't or won't do ourselves. My septic tank for instance, it needs to be done, but I sure as hell am not going to do it. So, I hire somebody. Same for my meat.

I also, as a nurse, worry terribly about parasites in game and mercury poisoning in wild caught fish. My husband's cousins live in a very rural area and would eat wild caught fish several times a week and they and their families got mercury poisoning and had to have chelation to remove the metals. They were getting brain damage, nerve damage and their hair is now permanently grey and some of the damage done to their nervous and brain systems will never heal. (Not to mention chelation is VERY painful and can't repair ALL the damage done by heavy metal poisoning.)

I try to be healthy and parasites and heavy metal poisoning are a few of the things that a First World Diet goes a long way to prevent.

Mileage and all that stuff.

I used to hunt with my dad when I was younger. I was raised on wild game and I still eat it when ever I get the chance!

I have eaten wild game, but not for a long time. No one in my family hunts (the game we had came from a hunter friend). Sometimes we fish. We often eat local, wild-caught seafood that we get from a local seafood market in the fall, winter, and spring. It's available in the summer, too, but we just don't eat it then (the oysters aren't good then).

My partner hunts and stocks our freezer so yes, I grew up in a family full of hunters so I was raised on it. Venison is delicious and leaner than any cows meat you could buy at the grocery store, taste the same to me.

I like a good deer roast and I've had rabbit, squirrel, and probably some other things no one wanted to reveal where the meat originated from...that's growing up in the South for you! For the longest time I believed chicken livers really were small pieces of steak.

We have rabbit and squirrel in the freezer, which my partner will eat but I am still a little too scared to eat that, I usually stick to the elk, deer, antelope, and various birds

I don't kill it, but if someone offers me deer, I have no issue eating it. Living in the area that I do, hunting season is a big deal. Deer steak actually tastes very good.

I don't hunt (except for birds when I was younger) but family members occasionally went deer hunting. I grew up enjoying venison.

I don't hunt but I knew some who did and would eat deer venison from time to time.
