This question doesnt apply to me but I wanted to ask. If any of you were in a finacle bind would you go out and shoot a deer even if the season was closed just to put some meat on the table?

No.. I would get off my butt and work for my meal. If I was that desperate I would sell my gun and certainly wouldnt be spending my time hunting. I know the economy sucks but food isn't that expensive and ANYBODY can find a way to make enough money to feed themselves.

I'd try harder to find a job and hunt legal game and fish if I had the time and the money for ammo and bait. I would also take a very close look at where all my money was going and manage my finances down to the dollar. I can live very cheap when I want to. I had a lot of practice doing it when I was younger. However, I'm single and really only have to worry about myself. Regardless, making sure that whatever money one has is going to the right places is something that applies to being married or single. I think it's really hard to answer your question unless you're in that situation with little mouths to feed. There's also public food assistance that can help.

I wouldn't, but have know people who do. From when I was 15 till my early 20's, I knew several people that hunted year round for that sole purpose.

It's too broad of a question.

Are you asking in the present economy would I kill out of season? The answer is no, there are jobs out there. Most don't pay as well as they did a few years ago and the benefits aren't what they used to be. But if you/me were willing to go to a sustenance livestyle you can make enough money.

Now if we were talking about a future economy, that drops us to depression era like levels. Then yes, I would kill to feed my family, regardless of what the government says. But on that same note I'd also disregard most other "sportsmenship" laws, ie shooting times, distance from roadways, probably even private property if no one was living on it, ect. I would be more a hunter of opportunity, be it turkeys with a rifle, deer at night, ect. Whatever it took to feed my family.

I also would never sell my last gun, it is the way to keep your family fed, that and knowledge of the land.

Good answer. Dont forget if the economy gets that bad that gun would be your only source of protection too! I hope it never comes to this.Alot of people dont have the skills to survive out there in the wild.

A couple years ago, times got tough, and I had the idea that I could kill deer and catch enough fish to supplement everything. I'd busted a couple does and would hit the river after work.

Let me tell ya, I like deer and catfish, but if you eat it every night for about a month, it gets OLD! Better off buying dried beans and rice!
