Those we have lost are very conspicuous in their absence,
wouldn't you agree Grace?

It was the dinosaurs who ruled here for
several million years -
it is thought a meteor or some major event
wiped them out.

Now WE 'human's' are in control of this planet
and our 'thinking' abilities and intelligence dictate most everything..Science.. advances in medicine.. how we achieved air travel..
modern medicine, how to arrest illnesses and
enable ourselves live longer: communication.. telephone etc.
mobility- cars buses trains.. air and sea travel.. etc.. etc.. etc.
as we all know: we have done wonders..

We also *have the choice* to pick a banana off a tree,
or cook a few vegetables, or even bake a loaf of bread,
using flour nuts & grains...
in order to feed ourselves, so that "IF" we were so inclined,
we need never resort to meat eating in this period of time
[I believe]

whereas it's still a basic built-in instinct which prompts an animal -
[who can't do any of the above mentioned...] to stalk
and kill for food.
'That's' the massive difference I see.. in your post Denny.

Having said this.

I am not preaching or telling anyone whether or not
to eat meat, that is not MY business, nor is it my right..
if I don't eat meat [which I don't]
that's my choice and... the choices others make
in this regard are
none of MY business.

Please feel free to PM me if you have anything private to relay..
I read of the crimes those convicts were guilty of...sometimes something

Thanks for the offer on the PM's, I might take you up on that.

How close us the nearest grocery store to Denny?

The difference is whales eat what the kill, they don't kill for the hell of it or to put a head on the wall.....sell the tusk or the fin or the paw.

And while you're out there shooting deer and pheasant which you may well eat, do you bother to say a prayer or thank the animal you just killed for the meal(s) he's going to provide? If my pal Fisherman canes back he'll acknowledge natives at least have compassion and gratitude for that which dies so they can survive.

Contrary to popular belief, humans do not own this planet or the animals who inhabit it. We borrow it from the generation that comes after us.....but each generation just destroys a but more than the one that came before.

I eat what I shoot except for coyotes. I shoot coyotes to help the deer population. There are more deer in Texas than any state and it is because of the hunter and the money he spends on license goes to promote the animals. Different areas have different limits. That depends on the population in that area. Texas has had great success in proper game management. There are too many deer in some areas. That makes for starving deer and small animals. I see no difference in eating a deer or eating a cow. I hunted deer a lot this year but I didn't shoot any. I saw a lot of beautiful animals. I could have shot one with a bow but I wasn't sure of a perfect shot and a quick death so I didn't take the shot

Mighty Quinn that meat doesn't show up by magic in the market. Long ago I worked in a packing plant that killed 2,000 hogs a day.

That stagtement you made doesn't make sense to me Denny, can you clarify
it. You "shoot the coyotes to help the deer"...well, surely if there is
an abundance of deer that man has to 'cull' them to keep the numbers down...then why not leave it to the coyotes who would kill to eat?
Natures way.

Coyotes kill deer and reduce the numbers. They also kill cattle. By keeping the coyote numbers down you can keep the number of deer up. There are lots of coyotes where I hunt but not an over abundance of deer. Near Austin where Flower is from there are way to many deer and they are very small. I got to hunt there only once. I saw 60 deer one morning and another person saw 90. This is an are where the limit is set so you can take lots of Bucks to try to hold down the population. Wild hogs have gone crazy in Texas. You can hunt them all year with no limits. Hogs are dangerous and very destructive of the land. My wife won't eat deer but she will eat pork :)

I guess the closest thing you have as a predator is the fox. Coyotes are far more aggressive than the fox. They do keep your rabbit population in check. Nature isn't perfect in keeping the proper balance. I guess coyotes would be a great danger to the sheep farmer

Hope you do, I suggested PM as my e-mail is not functioning,
I am working on it. LOL about the religious set-toos...that
sounds like fun, lol.
I was witness to some shocking things when I was small..just kidding,
but we had a bowl of Holy Water on the hat stand in the hall, my
Uncle would cross himself with it on his way out when he was going
to the 'dogs'(dog racing) for luck..my Grandmother would go mad with him.
I think your Grandpa can be excused drinking, all things considered!...:)
