The only people I've known that hunted out of season were people that did not have much of anything to begin with. They may have had a tv with rabbit ears and if they did, that was a luxury.

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.


^^^^^^^^ this


Well said Redfred.

I will add, it you feel you must POACH for food, you should call your local game warden. If the need is true, I bet he could keep you supplied in all the "Dead Deer" you could use. Just my thought.

If my kids were going hungry and there was no other way then I would. Having said that, I would never knowingly break a law in the outdoors...aside from going against my moral compass, it could also get you in even deeper trouble.

If I had to do this to feed my kids, and I had exhausted all other avenuues, absolutely. And then only what they needed to survive. If it were just the wife and I we could figure out other ways. This is the only way that I could ever see myself doing it.

If it meant the difference in my kids and family going hungry, absolutely I would feed them. It would have to be a last resort however.

No. I would not break a game law. There are food banks to get food from. They are legal. If you are too proud to ask for help, you definitely should be too proud to break the law.
