Those pictures and comments are troubling. I have no problem with people hunting if they NEED the food (as opposed to simply wanting the thrill of eating something they've killed), or if the species has over-populated an area and needs to be culled for the good of the environment, or if the specific animal is either sick or has become a threat to humans. But killing magnificent animals for the fun of it is not something I can condone in this day and age.

What sport is there in blowing a huge hole in a defenseless and clueless animal from 50 yards away? I note that the animal wasn't shot in the head, and apparently the heart was intact since they ate it (an odd first choice, IMO), so I suspect the animal simply bled to death from the wound. What did it do to deserve that fate?

I understand some people have a problem with this thread. That is fine. If you have an issue with it please PM pdswife. She will be glad to clarify and answer anything. This is how some people eat - it's actually how people have eaten for a long time. Take your issues to PM. There have already been a couple comments made that have been removed. If you have to come on this thread and make some back-handed comment you don't think we're smart enough to catch you are mistaken.

Pds, I can only deduce that hunting and eating bear is not illegal. While I can briefly set aside my pity for the death of that beautiful wild creature, and while I can understand your new-found thrill for the hunt, I'm a little unsettled by the uncontained excitement to eat the bear and even it's heart. Sure it's food, but somehow people don't normally get that worked up about eating chicken or cow right? The open eagerness to eat the bear is troubling to me. You might say, it got to my sensibilities. Sorry but that's just how I feel.

My comment was direct and polite. PDsWife, Trish, is a big girl and can handle courteous disagreement, as she demonstrated in her PM response to me.

BTW, I've already received karma from five DC members and positive PMs for my reply to the thread, two of whom remarked on the "courage" I showed by posting what they believe but were afraid to post because of this sort of intimidation.

.... Well... I think the best way I can describe it chopstix is that

when I eat a tomato from the store it's just a dang tomato but... If I go out and plant the seed and watch it grow and the shoot comes up and turns in to a plant and then a little yellow flower appears and then a little green tomato pops out and then it starts to turn a pretty shade of red and the sun warms it and then I pick it and eat it it's a TOMATO!!!!!

It's just different... it's better.
It's something that I did. ( or in this case that my husband did)
Better...more real...more exciting...
Hard to explain.

Please post your opinions. I may not agree... but as always I am
interested in hearing them. I know there are hunters on the site... and non- hunters. Everyone has feelings good and bad about everything.

smiles, T

p.s.... anyone who can be intimidated by me makes me lol... I'm a whimp!!! lololol

Just some facts....



1,333 bears killed in washington last season
20,724 hunters hunted bears last season
Which means only 6.4 % of the hunters got a bear.
On average it took the hunters 129.4 days to shoot a bear.
There are about 30,000 bears in Washington state.
Hunters are not allowed to use dogs to hunt bear.
Hunters are not allowed to use bait to hunt bear.
