I would feel guilty too if I shot two birds with no intentions of eating them. You DO NOT kill an animal you do not intend to eat unless it is a
threat to yourself or others or is seriously injured or sick. (a bear trying to rip you to shreds, a deer that was hit by a car and is hurt and dying,
rabid animal, ect). To me that is trophy hunting and is a waste of life. If you do not intend to eat it, if it is not causing harm, and if it is
healthy do not kill it.
I come from a family that hunts, I have cleaned deer and pheasants, caught, scaled and cleaned fish to eat. And you are right, so few people think
about the fact that the hamburger on their plate came from an actual animal. I was raised around hunting and fishing. I have seen cattle slaughtered
to provide food too. So I have seen the process and am thankful to the animal that gave it's life so I could eat. In my thoughts everyone who eats
meat should go hunt their food at least once, it gives you a new appreciation for it.
