Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.

Of course now my oldest son and I are much like You and Jason. I firmly believe that when you teach your young ones properly in the right things when they are older they do not depart from those teachings. Having a good hunting friend is very valuable but having a family member as your best hunting buddy is priceless.
Amen to that my friend.

I grew up in a farming community and hunting was just one of the things we did. Fishing, camping, hiking, farming and hunting just were a way of life. We didn't know it was a sport and we certainly didn't know we had all the wrong equipment (LOL).
It wasn't until I went to college that the reality of the world and it's weird and twisted way of thinking came to bear on all the things I took for granted. I never realized gleaning the surplus game for food and fellowship was so wrong. For the life of me I still don't. Why taking the life of a cow (someone else doing the killing and butchering of course) is a necessary evil, but hunting wild game for the pleasure of it is wrong.
The very point you raise Spirit - the fellowship of the hunt - is a mystery to most civilized people. They don't understand it, so it must be wrong. So many of my hunting mentors, gone on before me, such treasured friendships...makes me smile to remember them. My hunting brothers of today - such good friends - trusted friends that come to my aid and I to them. What a wonderful life to stay connected to it's sacred circle and share with my fellow predators.
