Have you ever killed an animal?
Not intentionally. I think we've all have had accidents in the car. Rabbits, etc.
Fish, bugs, but nothing furry.
A few birds with a shotgun, some mice with a shovel, some birds with an airsoft gun,...
Shot a raccoon with a break barrel spring action rifle, .22 hollow point ammo. It isn't a firearm but does the job. To cock the spring, you have to apply about 100lbs pressure to be able to fold the barrel.
Unless it's injured and you wanna put it out of it misery or you eat the meat I wouldn't kill one
I killed a bird that my cat brought in and had hurt badly. I felt terrible about it but didn't see a lot of choices.
Aww, that must have been awful. How on earth did you do it?
Okay, this might seem lame, I put it in a shoe box and put it in the freezer, I know it probably wasn't as quick as other ways but that was the best I could do.
It probably just fell asleep and died that way. I don't think I could kill a bird directly either. I'm sure that must have been incredibly hard.
Killed a Prairie Dog once who had filled my back yard with holes that could have broken my dogs' legs. Shot it with a pellet pistol and my Cocker Spaniel instinctively fetched it!
Just fish...they always swallow the hook! Dumb fish.
Hunting is the ultimate in organic harvesting.
Mice, including ones that the trap didn't kill.
Been fishing once, caught...two or three fish.
A few birds, mice, rats, deer, rabbits. Snakes, and some other stuff that I've probably just forgot.
Oh, also turtles, frogs, there's been a her of antelope here recently that I'm going to try and get soon.
Inadvertently in my car. Never on purpose or for sport.
If there's a hunting season for it, I've killed it. With the exception of elk and wolf (wolf will be soon). Also humans when I was in the Corps.
Be and I were just discussing elk. Have you ever eaten it? My dad is a bow hunter and used to hunt elk every year near Boise. His elk roasts were incredible.
Rickvee - have you hunted buffalo?
Elk is really good.
Never had elk. There aren't any buffalo around these parts... I didn't think they had a season. Oh, and also haven't hunted alligator (yet).
Definitely try elk when you have the chance.
Invite me up when u get the gator cause they taste amazing
I buy gator every now and again. Great meat. I actually have some elk and catfish in the freezer I need to make this weekend.
I have gator at least once a year at the MN state fair.
Fishing. Also, I've hit a squirrel and a rabbit with my car. 😢
I'm about the same as you. Fishing and a few unfortunate animals with the car
I hit the "neighborhood rabbit". He was always in the field with his mate when you drive into our neighborhood. Then I hit him with my car and had to see his mate in the field alone all the time. So awful! 😭
Insects, mice, a few fish in the day. That's it.
A few moles and mice.
I hit an elk once while driving but that's the only time. Insects, yes.
Whoa. That must have been ugly.
Yes and my SUV was only a month old! 😩
The policeman said they give the meat to the local prison so that was the good part.
Oh wow! Well at least the meat didn't go to waste. Elk is delicious! How much was your SUV damaged?
It was pretty messed up. I couldn't drive it so the policeman had to give me a ride to the nearest town so I could rent a car to get home. :-/
Oh no! My dad has an elk on his wall and that thing is enormous. His antlers are nearly 5' across.
Ah, then no.
I've hunted a few ducks, deer, and rabbits. I've also been fishing. I've squashed countless bugs, and spiders.
I also killed Muslims in Iraq, they count as animals.
Cue all the outraged liberals.
Guys, that is inappropriate. There are some very sweet loving people who are Muslim. Sure, there are some rather loud & obnoxious radical Muslims, but don't allow them to taint your view of such a large & diverse group of people.
For the record, I am FAR from liberal.
Bama, he mentioned Iraq. They might have had guns too.
And based on his name, I appreciate his service & I am sure the trauma he experienced influenced his view. That said, I'm a Christian & I certainly wouldn't want everyone assuming we are all like the Westboro Baptists.
Not to the Muslim users of this app to them this is hurtful.
Nor to those of us who know & love them.
Those people are animals, just like Hilter was & like many serial killers, but again they are NOT a fair representation of all Muslims.
I try to make a distinction in my speech between "Muslims" (chiefly peaceful) and "islamic Jihadists, Radical Islamic Terrorists, murdering ISIS lunatics," etc. that may be a good way to avoid offending sweet folks like JennaF. ❤️
Tom & Bama 💗💗
