Handloads.Com ForumGeneral DiscussionPoll: Do you hunt?
Short easy question this time, do you hunt? I think that most of the people who post on the forum are hunters, but an anonymous poll on the front page will let those who don't like to post share their views.

Don't forget to vote.

I have hunted in the past. But not anymore. Finances, health, and location are the causes.

I answered the poll "yes" because, if I could, I would. However, like J, my health is rapidly going downhill and I don't even know if I can shoot anymore.
 
yes
 
Going deer hunting with grandson and grandaughter this year.

Went looking for feral hogs the other day, but I had the wrong gun through wrong information. I had a .35 Whelen I wanted to test with 180 gr SS pistols bullets, but I needed a pistol! Grown over cut timber with 4 wheeler trails just wasn't right for a rifle. It reminded me of the old Johnny Horton song "Battle of New Orleans". I "went through the briars and went through the brambles and I went through places where a rabbit couldn't go".

A Big Yes.

yes I hunt, I don't fill my tag as regular as I used to but I still get a kick out of making a good shot. I also get a certain satisfaction from counting coup on one and watching it wander on off without knowing in my mind it was turned into table fare. I don't count shooting prairiedogs and coyotes and such as hunting its just part of the job.
The most expensive bullet there is ain’t worth a plug nickel if it don’t go where its supposed to.
Yes.

No one in my family hunted, but my father was very much "into" guns. When I was about 14 I knew I wanted to hunt and started. I never had any uncle's, brothers, dad's etc taking me hunting. It is kinda odd, but I always knew I was a hunter.

Every gun I own was bought with the intention to hunt except one. And that one is usually filled with snake shot.

Hunting isn't something I do, it isn't a hobby, it is who I am. If I couldn't hunt I would feel like a trapped animal in a zoo.

Yep, been doing so for 30 years now. Still stink at it but I have fun.
God Bless

I hunt as often as I can get out, although not as much anymore now that I am married and will probably be even less with the new job I will be taking in a month unless I can do it on the weekends since there is very little vacation time.
 
Jeff Cooper talked about Hunting on Guns and Ammo TV last weekend and made a point that I think some urban people, especially non gun owners just don't get. Hunting is about being outdoors and getting in touch with nature, it's not about killing. He said (paraphrased) 'someone asked him a hunt went, he said GREAT it was terrific! I didn't kill a single thing but it was a great hunt'.
