It doesn't matter whether it's deer hunting , turkey hunting, or pig hunting.

What does Hunting mean to you??

Hunting kind of goes the same for me as golf....It's done outdoors in all kinds of weather in some beautiful settings...

It's an individual sport that can be done/shared with good friends..

It's an extremely difficult sport in which to excel much less ever master, but it can be enjoyed by people of all ages, sexes, physical types and abilities...

To me hunting gives me many of the pleasures I find with golf...

Having a good time and trying to learn something new on every hunt.... I do not make it a job since I already have one. I grew up in a hunting family and I have been lucky enough to have been introduced to several methods of hunting in different states. I also like to keep an open mind and I don't worry about what other hunters are doing or what they choose to kill.

If the day ever comes where hunting isn't fun or I'm worried about what other legal hunters are doing.... I will hang it up and find another adventure. \:\)

It's something that I truly enjoy. I many times have been 30' up just looking around realizing how good life is. My best days of hunting have been ones when I never even fired a shot. Being in the woods just feels natural. It's the only place where I truly feel peaceful. It means peace and joy to me.

Time with my boys to sit, talk & enjoy nature without all the distractions (crap) from the outside world. Then the incredible sence of accomishment they achieve
If they are fortunate to take a squirrel or a deer.

It's a chance for me get away and clear my mind. I love to watch the world wake up in the morning. If I kill something that's a bonus.

Friends...... If it wasn't for the friends I hunt around it wouldn't mean half as much. Hunting is an awesome experience each trip, but without them to share it with... Just wouldn't be the same. Plus it's nice to have help dragging...
(Thanks plinker)

Hunting is like setting down to that perfect meal to eat. Killing a deer/dove/rabbit/etc is just desert.

Praising God for his handiwork.

Sitting in a November or December tree stand in the snow and cold or watching the sun rise on a clear day. Spring time in the turkey woods listening for that elusive gobble. Laying prone during a spring rain storm watching a sleeping gobbler wake up!

Smelling the woods in Alabama while putting some turkeys to bed, watching a bolt of lightning in the distance.

Its a refuge from the world and its anxieties. Unfortunately I don't do enough of it - but that will soon change.

Ive always got along better in the woods with the animals than in the city with people.
I understand the rules of animals and nature, but dont always understand people and the way they behave.
Hunting is a return to what feels like "home". Thats also why I'd rather hunt alone. Its time I spend just with me...and I dont get much "me" time these days.

It's time I get to spend with my Grandfather and Dad - both of whom have passed - but I know they are in the woods with me when I hunt -

It's time to remember all of the past hunting camps and the times we had - the call, from my Uncle (also passed), to breakfast - 'it's daylight in the swamp!!'

It's sitting in a hay bale blind with my grandson - passing on the memories -

It's simply - part of who I've grown up to be -

ferg....

Exactly. A chance to be what I truly am; a member of a hunting/gathering species.
