Reading a current thread made me want to start up this thread for those hunters who may be (although perhaps unknowingly) performing un-ethical or frowned-upon activities in the deer-hunting world. I'm not saying that everything that I do should be a model, but I've deer-hunted for 17 years, and I've seen some chit over the years that makes me sick. Here are the suggestions I would make to ANY deer hunter. Feel free to add what you think is necessary: 1. Never, never say the words "I stuck one." This is like nails on a chalkboard to me. It makes you sound like a heathen... 2. Put your tailgate up...not everyone wants to see your deer (and there are always bigger ones out there...I promise, yours isn't the biggest!) 3. Use ALL of the meat from the animal you kill... 4. It's okay to feel remorse for killing an animal...that's what makes you human. 5. "I need to kill something" are words that should never be uttered. 6. Don't be too proud...see #2. 7. Don't complain about not seeing deer when you don't put in the time...It's "hunting," not "shooting." 8. "Whack 'em and stack 'em!" is as retarded a saying as there ever was...have some self-respect, man... 9. Deer hunting is NOT about antlers... 10. When there is ANY shred of doubt, DON'T pull the trigger!
