Yup.. pretty grusome.. cow choking on its own blood. The least they could do is buy a bullet and shoot it in the head or put it to sleep so there was no pain or horror.

I am no stranger to death. I fed my family for a year with meat I harvested out of the forest last fall. Its humbling and sobering to take a beautiful animals life to sustatain our own..

but as reverend Maynard once said...
This Is Necessary...
This Is Necessary...
Life.. Feed on
LIFE.. FEEDS On
LIFE.. FEEDS ON
This Is Necessary!!!
And So Forth..

Let the rabits wear glasses.. Save the Carrots.

But have you ever seen a cow gets it's throat cut?
The sounds and how it blows blood bubbles out its
nose and chokes on its on blood??
I think if most people had to kill their meal they would
have a greater respect for it.

Just something to think about next
Time you order your Whooper with extra cheese.....

very good point. in the age of supermarkets, and brand names, there's an even greater degree of desensitization. to the point where people have almost forgotten whoppers are made of cow!! :eusa_wall

as for me, i'll stick to my edamame and garden burgers :lol:
if i don't have the heart to kill it, i probably shouldn't be eating it.

&&my pops used to work in a cow "processing plant" in the 70's..

back then, they didn't even take the time to cut they're throats
nope, just a giant sledge hammer planted right between the eyes.

very eco-friendly :thumbup:

thats not even game hunting using a shotty on a little squirrel....give him a chance atleast..

id rather chill with the squirrel and nibble on nuts with him than eat the poor guy

you can lick his nuts for all i care.
:lol:
fyi
i don't kill animals for sport,
i kill them to eat them.
there is no such thing as
a fair fight
between man and squirrel.
and do not presume to sit in judgment -
you are not a god.

I like mine boiled in a big pot with rice and some tasty herbs.

The best I give em is I head shoot them with a .22...

primarily cause I don't own a shotgun.

Killed hundreds with a 12 gauge as a kid, but there's no shot in the meat if you head shoot them with a .22.

The old trick with a box of stick matches works real good under a nut tree...

it's inhumane to hunt with weapons with less than 100% KILL rates,
wounding a squirrel with dart or arrow so it suffers is not better
than the immediate kill by firearm,
it's just an illusion of humane.

better then my 10mm .....


cool... another 10mm fan:eusa_clap

Where I grew up we hunted the little pine squirrels in the same mountains we would hunt for blue grouse.

my mom made an awesome dinner for me in her old crock pot with them.

it was a recipe for chicken cacciatore, she just substituted the chicken with the squirrels.

I Lived on a farm when I was younger and we used to eat alot of squirell. We were very "unwealthy" heh..and squirrel and rabbit were the majority of the meat we had available. A tip incase u didn't know it..The best way to get the shot out of the meat is to boil it ..the shot comes right outta the meat with out having to mangle it.. I think we used #7 shot most of the time and a .177 pellet gun or .22 rifle for longer range shots.

Yep, Glock Model 20. Not much of a Glock Fan but I love 10mm
and got a good deal on it. Also I have it's baby brother .40 Cal.

Kinda cool story of how the secret service and some special forces
use to run 10mm but had problems with regrouping on rapid fires
as well with the intense penetration.
So they cut the 10mm down. This lead to the birth of the .40 Cal!

with my 17HMR i take jackrabbits from around 125 yds pretty easily. and even if i do miss they are retarded enough to usually let me get the second shot off without them even moving lol.

i highly suggest a 17HMR to anyone looking to buy a small fun to shoot rifle. they are powerful enough to take out a coyote with a decent shot but delicate enough to not destroy small game with the right ammo :)

Always wanted to play with the 17HMR. I love the 22 mag just hate
their price for the ammo...grrr..

Jack Rabbits are tuff, and I have clocked them @ 40 MPH from an ATV.
I have dumped 25 rounds of 22 LR in one before dropping it.
(Think he was on PCP) Better to use something a bit stronger
For a clean and friendly kill.
So I bet 17HMR would be as or better then a 22 mag.
I always run them down after shooting not cool to let them trail off and die. Plus a waste of meat.

forgot to say 125 yds? damn nice!! what scope??

i use a .177 target pistol for tree rats. sport and breakfast. i only take shots i know will down them mostly within 30 ft well within the effective range. not my favorite but seriously got me through some tough times. and yes a wounded one is very vicious and will scare the crap out of you when it comes to life in your hands. i just use a nail board and pliers to skin them. good recipes will have to try them. as to the humane aspect i kill for sport and for food because i can i do what i want just like everything and everyone else.

Speaking of squirrels . . . I was just attacked
by a squirrel, seemingly for no reason. I walk
outside, I hear a strange clicking noise (Squirrel),
I look up into a tree about 30 ft away and there
is a squirrel staring right at me. I take a step
forward and the squirrel starts jumping around
the tree all crazy like. One more step forward
and the squirrel leaps from the tree and charges
at me, luckily I had a banker's box in my hands
and just batted it to the side, then it clicked at
me some more and then ran away. I have no
idea what to make of the situation . . .
