Regret and joy from a hunting experience - posted 4 years ago

Luke, awesome expression of what hunters feel. I usually get pretty emotional when I take an animal's life for a lot of reasons - the life I took, the fact that my dad is no longer around to hunt with me, joy in the satisfaction of self-reliance and success, cognizance of my own mortality. And I agree with Scott R. - less hootin' and hollerin' about "smoked 'im" and more reverence for the animal and nature would do us good. Hunting is not an "industry" either; it's a food-gathering activity. Well done!
