I would like to start a thread about Hunting Stories, and if your Father or Grandfather taught you to hunt with respect, and never take an animals life just for "fun".
Did anyone's family teach them that an animal should be taken for their meat, or as a show of respect for that animal?
For example my buddy tells a great story about how when he first shot a small bird (on their farm) with his Daisy BB gun...his grandma made him clean/cook/eat it.
I remember the stories about Buffalos shot just for their pelts, and Elephants shot just for their Ivory...and the rest left to rot on the plain.
I don't want to believe that's Us.
So, has anyone got any good stories about what their Father/Grandfather may have taught them about hunting/values?
