Thread Name: BS: Foxhunting Banned.
Subject: RE: BS: Foxhunting Banned.
I like deer: the animal, the leather and the meat. We have so damn many of them that they are a hazard on highways and roads in Alberta.

Gutting one takes a little time, especially if you want to keep the hide. The brain is a good thing to rub on the hide when you have it removed because it helps preserve the leather and make the skin more pliable.

Of course, amny people who enjoy their steak have never helped cut the nuts off a young steer--but hey, that's what it takes. Meat doesn't start out in a grocery store plastic tray covered with plastic wrap. Steak once went moo and walked around.

I have always been bothered by folks who don't mind someone else doing the 'dirty' work. There's lots of that goin' around. Not that I think you fox hunters are that way. Let me know how you feel when you are upto your elbows in guts. The odor isn't the best, but it all washes off when ya take a shower. Just like the smell of the fox when it shits after you kill it.
