    I'm a lifelong hunter but this sick bitch gives all us hunters a bad name and I hope she goes broke fighting these charges. Maybe she can pay off her debts dancing around an elephant tusk stripping pole.

    "US big game hunter who boasted of gunning down goats and stags on trip to Scottish island and posed with blooded sex toy next to dead sheep"

    " While she was pictured with slain goats, stags and sheep on Islay, hunting animals in season is not illegal in Scotland and she is facing a charge under Section 11a of the Firearms Act, which relates to how you can use borrowed shotguns legally."

    Hunt just for food? Otherwise, there isn't much difference.

    CLAIMING to hunt for food isn't much different. Not too many people can't afford to buy the food they need. The ones that can't afford to buy food sure can't afford the equipment needed to hunt for food.

    In industrialised societies we choose how to feed ourselves. We can get it for ourselves - hunting, gathering, planting and harvesting - or we can rely on others to do it for us. Most of us - me included - rely on others. I don't hunt/gather/plant or harvest. I rely on the industrialised production of food. I am a hypocrite. I dislike hunting as a bloodsport but I feed myself from the industrialised food process. If you want to see cruelty to animals then you only have to look at the industrialised production of food. Hunters who hunt for food are at least honest about how they feed themselves, creatures such as the woman in the OP are just bloodthirsty bastards.

    I live in a rural area. A lot of people here are happy with their lives but are not wealthy by "city folk" standards. Many shoot a monthly deer, plus a few squirrels, that's their main source of meat. A lot have chickens for eggs and more meat. Quite a few have bee hives. Everyone has a garden. A lot of people - more than you realize - choose to live this way.

    And the cost is low. Once you get a few hens and a rooster (and people are always willing to give away a rooster), the cost is near zero. Same for bee hives, an initial cost then ongoing costs are near zero. Gardens are near zero cost.

    And bullets and shotgun shells are cheap. Once you have the rifle or shotgun, meat is basically free. And everyone here has a rifle (generally more than 1) and a shotgun, some new and some passed down from parents, some are gifts, some are bartered.

    I understand. I went thru the same phase when I was a young man. I was born into a family that hunted and I hunted all the small game that's out there. As I got older I went thru a change of attitude and went from gun hunting to camera hunting. I don't intend to be overly critical of hunters but the old "I hunt for the meat" is rather thin.

    I've known a few poachers that hunt for reasons over than the fun of the kill. But you're right. If its about enjoyment then let's not exaggerate the fake 'they're different' blubbering.

    I'm not even going to look at that. Besides sounding a lot like fake news, it's just plain disgusting.
    You eat what you kill was always the rule when I was younger.
    I live in a relatively rural area too. Hunting is not the best choice of words for the slaughter that goes on here. People put up deer stands, lure in the deer for a year with deer corn, then annihilate them on the appointed day.
    And the idea of one-shot-one-kill is totally gone also. I hear enough shots to empty the clip most of the time. Came home from work one day and found a .380 had come through the wall and was lying on my living room floor. Pretty wild.

    But is that a cultural rule? If the kill is the real enjoyment is there any real difference with the woman mentioned in the OP? Or does the fact that she probably went to an over priced restaurant, and could have hypothetically eaten veal, more of a tut (perhaps by reference to the evils of mass farming)?

    A lot of people don't "need" to hunt for meat. But so what?

    I used to hunt, but after being so close to animals I stopped hunting. I go into the woods and wild a lot, hiking and camping, always armed, but not hunting. Raising animals and taking care of them gives a person a different sense of life and the world. We don't even kill the chickens for meat anymore, and eat very little meat.

    Now if it was a matter of starving or hunting, I'd be hunting.

    Hunting for meat is not always an economics choice. I prefer the quality of wild game over raised meat in both taste and cleanliness of the meat itself. I also prefer taking responsibility for the kill and killing an animal that has led a high quality natural life instead of an industrialized meat farm existence.

    we all hunt for food, most just let others do the dirty work so they can pretend that they aren't killers for sustinance... heck, most foods eatin happen to be for pleasure not sustinance, ie: force feeding corn to a duck 24/7, to tenderize its liver.

    I enjoy the hunt itself. Becoming the predator and stalking the prey awakens some ancient part of you that our modern existence puts to sleep. Your senses are sharpened and the world looks and feels different when you silently creep through a forest looking and listening and even smelling for the animal you pursue.
    When it comes time to do the actual kill I always cringe a bit and once I'm standing over the dead body of a large beautiful animal who's life I took I always feel a tinge of remorse which you should feel and is something you don't feel when you buy shrink wrapped meat someone else killed for you in the grocery store. One thing for sure though I don't feel some sexual joy like the sick bitch in the OP apparently does.

    What state do you live in that allows people to hunt a monthly deer? Or are they poaching?

    To me that's not hunting it's harvesting meat that is wild yet farm raised and is more a slaughter than a hunt. Having said that I'm not against it and it's still more honest than buying meat and the meat itself is better quality and the animals live a better life. Not my idea of hunting though.

    "You eat what you kill was always the rule when I was younger."

    Along with "clean your plate" (eat everything on your plate) or go directly to bed immediately after supper.

    I hunted when I was a young man. Now that I am older, life has taken on a different meaning. I suspect that's common. Nothing rational here, just human emotion on my part.

    I still enjoy cutting the legs off a frog, to eat, of course. Killing is as natural as breathing.

    But I never take photos in the wild. The process of photographing is a distraction and intrusion that takes you out of the moment. To me trophy photos are as sick as pornography.

    It was a general rule for a hunting culture that enjoyed the hunt as much as the meat. There were plenty who were there for a trophy. We occasionally found headless deer lying on the ground. I knew people who would gut the deer and drag the headless carcass out for themselves is it was a fresh kill. I've even known people who would throw a road kill in the trunk.

    The woman in the OP would not have been a part of that hunting culture. More likely just a spoiled wannabe.

    Not only this bitch, but people like Ted Nugent make my stomach turn when it comes to hunting.

    There exists an unwritten handbook that every true sportsman knows by heart. It quickly becomes part of their DNA. This woman never saw the handbook.
