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

Thanks for the offer on the PM's, I might take you up on that.
lol- family
When I was real little, we had a few Christmas holidays together, with both grandmas in the house. The atheist would always keep at the Catholic until they ended up in a great big fight! Same thing every time. lol, NO, it was not lol. Grandpa, the Native American, drank a lot....
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!...:)

Denny thinks its ok to kill defenseless animals with abandon, you & I disagree.
We will never convince him of the inhumanity of hunting and his love of guns anymore than he will convince us of the sport in hunting and his right and need to walk around carrying one.

Pack up your shotguns and come to Ohio. We have more deer now than when Daniel Boone was blazing a trail. Don't limit your hunting experience. I don't hunt but trek the woods and saw two large pointed bucks in a farmers' field.

Mighty Quinn we will just have to agree to disagree. Grace is consistent in her view point and doesn't set the life of one animal over the life of another animal. To me a deer is the same as a hog and a cow. I am a meat eater

Yahoo showed the rooftops in China or Japan where hundreds or thousands of shark fins were being dried out for the delicacy that is shark fin soup. Horrible.
They catch the shark, cut the fin off and throw back in the ocean! Catch a fish and eat the thing.

Oh for gods sake Denny! That's condescending. My aunts and uncles lived near the Chicago stockyard. I know how the hamburger got on my table.

You kill for sport, admit it. You use defenseless animals as an excuse to use your self proclaimed 2nd amendment right to have an arsenal to shoot and kill things. How many deer heads are on your wall? Justify it anyway you want.

You live in the metropolis of where again? Dallas I think. You're not in the backwoods of Montana or frontier of Alaska. Killing your supper is not a necessity so there is no pressing for you go out and kill anything with fur or feathers.

And the as far as managing the deer population, that's a crock. If you left nature alone the coyotes would take care of the deer population. It's called the natural order of a food chain and by killing the deer, you've taken away the coyote and wolves' food supply....then you say you kill the coyotes to save the deer....who you shoot and kill anyway. Be honest about it. Trying to PC sugar coat doesn't make it any better in some folks' eyes.

You're not doing the animal kingdom or your family's food supply any favors.

On Jan. 1, the shark fin ban went into effect in Illinois, being the first in-land state to do so.

For ease of travel, I-65/I-70 for Quinny and I-70 for you is the route connection. Richmond or east edge of Indianapolis (or in between could be a meeting point).

Or an alternate would be US 30 (or 33 where need be) to Fort Wayne-ish. But, that's small towns and traffic lights -- in particular "The Region" as Quinny heads east.
