we had a lot of beer...

seriously, we used a buddy's sister's professional hair and beard trimmer. then a little aftershave, and a hot towel.
ok, only kidding about the last 2, but we did use a trimmer. i was tempted to give it a mowhawk. ya know, make it look tough like a razorback, but then i figured no one would eat it.

IMHO... if you shoot it you should eat it or give it to someone else to eat.

Bucky, I agree that animals should be taken to put food on the table. I have several friends that hunt and that is how they supplement their food for the year.

Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie,
When the pie was openeed the birds began to sing,
Oh, wasn't t hat a dainty dish to set before the king?
The king was in his counting house counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey,
The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose!

You shoot it, you eat it. That's the rule. End of discussion for me.

Well this brings up an interesting question (and if this is hijacking the thread then let me know and I will split it off into a new thread). If the rule is "you shoot it you eat it" then what about killing insects. Now I know nobody is shooting them (well unless you are a very impressive shot), but the idea is the same. You are killing a living being. For those that believe you should eat what you kill do you apply that to insects as well and if not then why not.

For me I would never hunt something and not use the meat for food. I think hunting just for hunting sake or for a trophy is wrong. I am a hypocrite though because I have no problem killing insects and I really don't know what the difference is between the two is.

Well, for me, killing insects is usually a case of self defense - a lot of those suckers BITE!

Especially those black flies up north...

Seriously though, I do think there is a bit of a difference between a misquito buzzing around your head on the patio, and purposefully going out in the woods to shoot something.

What about the mosquito that is not buzzing around your head, but the one that landed on the table next to you and is not doing anything to you (yet) or the ant on the sidewalk or the spider in the corner of your room (yes I know spiders are not insects, but you know what I am saying)?

Absolutely. But how about this? There's really no trophy to be had, and there really isn't anything there to eat after you squish it. So it kind of takes the hunting for a trophy versus hunting for food argument away, since you really aren't able to eat those tiny critters. (I guess some people might try, and there are probably people who would collect and show off the dead ones, too)

Ok in that case, what about roaches. Those are eaten in some parts of the world right? Ants too.
