Ethical Deer Harvest

Hunting has become an important source of meat for us over the past 2 years.  The deer we have harvested have been our primary source of meat for about 7 or 8 months out of the year, depending on how you look at it.  I know some might be against the harvesting of deer or other wild game and I don’t really want to go into why one shouldn’t be against it.  I would like to explain why and how we hunt and what it provides for us.  I would also like to share my history with hunting and hopefully provide some encouragement to others who might have an interest but might feel that it’s to overwhelming to start.  This is the first of maybe 3 or 4 posts on deer hunting.
