I don't believe in hunting for "the thrill of the hunt", or mounting trophies, or any other reason such as that. I only hunt when I need to fill my freezer. It's just me and the Mrs., so I usually harvest only one deer per season. There are plenty of deer that walk through my back yard, so I really don't see a reason to buy permits. I just step out on my back porch, take aim........ Then I clean it and pack it into my freezer.
I've never hunted before. I would definitely try it, though. I'd want to hunt something big though, not a something like a bunny. How sick would it be if you had a bear skin rug, and YOU killed the bear? :>
I've been hunting with a few of my friends who are into it, but on the times I went with them we didn't get anything worthy of mentioning. Last trip my friend went on though he bought back a wild boar and we're going to put it on a spit roast once summer comes round.
I hunt squirrels with my BB gun. If i where legal, I would take the proper lessons and get a hunting permit, as well as a rifle permit. Deer, turkey, and wild cats all roam through the back area I own. Though, I have taken on plenty of squirrels, as well as a rabbit with my bb guns.
I regularly hunt deer, turkey, rabbit and squirrel. I want to get up to Maine sometime and go moose hunting. I hear it's a blast. I mostly hunt what I will eat. It's probably why I stay away from the water fowl and pheasants. I hear duck and goose are good so one of these years I may head down to Maryland to duck hunt.
Look in my profile pics, there is a picture of my doe from last years hunt.
