Indeed. I have a lot more respect and acceptance of hunters who eat whatever they kill. I still don't understand what they get out of killing a defenseless animal in terms of fun.
So let's ask the only member who has so far claimed it to be fun...

Although there are times when I'll do it just for the hell of it.
Why do you find it "hella fun", and why in the world would you sometimes kill just "for the hell of it"?
Ugh, like I said, I live in the South, and it's such a frequent thing to hear about. In middle school, I was horrified at this one girl's photo album she brought to school. There were so many pictures of her kneeling by a dead deer, lifting it's head up with blood running out of its nostrils and/or mouth and toungue hanging out. Disgusting.
I can also remember two other stories about killing animals from two guys. One used to sit out on a branch over the lake and shoot the fish. The other talked about shooting birds randomly. Oh, a few weeks ago, some stupid redneck boys trespassed on my grandfather's farm to shoot a crane, and leave it there to rot. I really hate people sometimes.
