With Hollywood giving personalities to ducks and penguins and continually writing scripts with thinking and talking bears and gorillas it's not surprising kids growing up today have trouble with the idea of shooting and killing wild game. Growing up in the country is different than an urban upbringing. On a farm you saw animals as animals. They were food or something trying to eat your food. That dynamic doesn't happen in the mango tree lined streets of Miami. Has urban growth and anthropomorphism, the attribution of human characteristics to non-human animals, changed your attitude towards hunting?
Several FS members reflect on their views on what they feel comfortable hunting and why. What do you think?
