Saw the before pic and back story a couple months ago of this photo...allegedly, the doe was hit by a car. And, from what I understand the car didn't even have a hunting license!

It was either hit by a car or an illegal kill out of season. Fawns are not that small by the time hunting season comes around. That fawn is probably not more than a week old. More liberal media type propaganda.

Rough deal.

First thought I had when I saw it was hit by a car. I have seen fawns similar to a little bigger in bow season. I would not shoot a doe with a fawn that looked like that.

Simple fact of the matter is mother nature while can be cute and cuddly is sometimes a cold cruel B!*&H! Could have just as easily been killed by yotes, lion, etc... and then it the fawn would be dead all the same.

Also ... how many of you kill because its fun? I personally don't really get a lot of satisfaction out of the actual killing part of hunting.

I love the planning, the scouting, the work getting ready for season, the act of waiting, sitting, watching, trying to figure out what I need to change in my approach to get a chance at a buck that isn't cooperating with my original strategy, I enjoy camp comradery, spending time outdoors with family and friends, teaching others about hunting, learning something new ... and preparing, cooking and eating wild game ... I get buck fever before the shot and I anticipate walking up on a down animal ... but the actual act of killing an animal is not something that I particularly get a lot of enjoyment out of or an act I would call "fun."

How do y'all feel about the actual act of killing a big game animal?

I don't separate the harvesting of a game animal from the rest of the process. The food plot planting, tree planting and managing the land is all part of the "fun" for me, but getting an animal is my goal. As a whole, it is fun for me.

Folks that use an argument "like the photo", have a weak case against something they personally don't understand, have to use false information and misleading things to push their agenda.I don't bother them when they do their "tree hugging" and don't need them bothering me for what I like to do. As long as it is legal, I will enjoy myself and will defend what I do.

I've killed a sow and had her entire litter of footballs run right up to me and hang around as I loaded her in the back of the truck. Felt like the biggest POS on the planet at the time, and I still hate that it happened that way but it's all part of it. I make a point to not shoot the doe with her yearlings still hanging around. I know they don't depend on her anymore but.. can't do it.

What makes me mad about that pic is what western said, people trying to push their agenda with false and misleading information.

Yeah, I didn't mean to make it sound like I separate the killing part of deer hunting from all the other stuff I listed. I know that it is the pinnacle act of the whole process, but what I meant is that the killing part is not something I personally would actually call fun. Maybe I just treat it differently than others, but that's the way my Dad taught me. He would always say a prayer as we knelt over a freshly recovered deer, and that left a big impression on me as a young hunter. It wasn't a time to celebrate, it was a time to respect and appreciate the magnitude of the purposeful taking of a life.

As for varmints and hogs, I don't feel the same way. Hogs, especially are a serious nuisance and should be killed and killed often.

The liberal media is a beast and deception is a big part of their MO, so I'm not surprised by the photo captions.

I'm actually new to hunting; last season was my first year, and I have to admit that those kills were not 'fun.' Better adjectives would be exciting, cautious, harvesting...and perhaps mindful. Mindful of the blessings the Lord has provided me and my family. And the natural order of things in a world filled with predators and prey. Putting fresh meat on my family's table, honoring the kill and ensuring nothing was wasted was enough for me, I suppose, to get past the unpleasantness of the kill. I like the prayer idea from Rattler03's father and vow to do the same for my future kills. Thanks for the thoughtful insight.

Lions don't kill gazelles. All the animals in the wild live together in harmonious bliss and are friends. At least that what Disney tries to teach everyone.

As kid watching the Lion King Disney movie I wondered how the lions stayed alive.

Since the male lion in the pride will kill all the cubs that aren't his to bring the lionesses back in cycle, Simba and Nala were brother and sister... or sibling cousins. eek2
