AMEN! "Harvesting" is a mamby pamby politically correct load of bs. If you can't stomach calling killing "killing", maybe you should take up tennis.

I don't think of "harvesting" as just a euphemism. It connotes subsequent use of the animal. Killing does not.

Maybe, just maybe you have a case there, BUT, hunters tend to only apply that term to big game animals. No one uses it to denote small game, upland birds, waterfowl etc. Why is that? and, since the term "harvest" is not applied to hunted animals across the board, what does that say about the people who use the term in the sense that you describe? Big game animals have subsequent use where waterfowl and small game do not? Face it, its TV lingo; a euphemism for killing trophy animals on TV that has entered the contemporary hunter lexicon. Some are quick to dismiss such language as just being "words", but the language we use says volumes about the way in which we think about hunting. That being the case, burying ourselves in euphemisms seems like a rather bad idea.

I once asked a hunter why she uses the word "harvest" and she stated that she is a hunter not a "murderer." This speaks volumes about that way in which she thinks about hunting. She thinks by killing a deer, one is "murdering" a deer, yet the act of "harvesting" a deer is somehow different. That is a problem, possibly a big problem that will bite hunting in its arse further down the road.
