Our friend Tim loves to hunt. He and his wife also keep chickens and grow vegetables so they’re virtually self sufficient as far as food goes.

Although I’m not altogether comfortable with killing, sometimes cute, living creatures I realize that I’m being hypocritical in that I continue eating meat. It’s just that someone else is doing the killing.

Also there is a need to keep, for example, deer populations down as in many places they no longer have natural predators. Deer populations running rampant have negative implications for the whole ecosystem.

But this isn’t a deer. It’s a caribou shot in northern Quebec. Tim normally hunts with a bow and arrow, but informed me that this was one of the few occasions where he used a rifle. Incidentally the meat from such an animal keeps them going for about a year and tastes delicious too.
