Up until year, all the animals I've killed except vermin. Have found a semi-local processing plant that does a really nice job cheap enough that it's no longer worth the trouble of doing my own deer...

Chickens, but no big animals.

What about fishing and cleaning your catch?

Hmm seems like that'd be considered

And when I eat meat, I never think of it as an animal. :-(

It's really easy to be vegetarian. I never miss meat because there are so many good foods out there :)

My new year resolution was to give up meat, and I've only slipped once. I love steak and haven't given up, on giving it up. :))

That's awesome! It's really important not to think of it as an all-or-nothing situation.

Yeah I wouldn't either, but I feel I couldn't be vegan.. I love meat too much...

Butcher? No. Shot behind the ear and watched it die? Yes

I've seen my grandpa butcher a goat

Lots of fish and birds, and a few rabbits. I've field dressed deer, but have never actually butchered one. I've watched the whole process start to finish at the butcher my parents use (they raise beef cattle).

Not really. I started with cleaning fish as young as I can remember, then chickens, then pheasant, ducks, and rabbits once I started hunting. Looking in their eyes bothered me a little I guess, at some point, but I think of them as preparing food.

Yeah I don't know, I love animals I couldn't do it.

I love animals too. Just like any honorable hunter, if I can't get a clean shot for a quick kill, I won't even bother.

Just a few fish. Nothing worth bragging about.

But I guess I kind of just did.

No, but my dad is a hunter (for the meat, not just for sport) and I've been around a lot when he does it.

No, probably because I grew up around it, and the animal is being used for food. If it wasn't being used for food, it would bother me a lot.

Most recently about a dozen perch I caught. But also squirrel, rabbit, grouse, pheasant, duck, goose, turkey, wolf, and deer. I left the moose and elk to a pro, I can admit when I'm out of my league. All that's left I think is bear.

Nope, I like being able to choose exactly how I want my meat cut, and in what quantities. Plus I don't like that some butcher shops mix up game and give someone's deer to another guy and vice versa.

Plus, with all those animals butchered, I saved a crap load of cash! :D
