3. My favorite turkey shoot:



Got these pics on Palomar Mountain of wild turkeys frolicking in the snow.

Obviously I prefer shooting with a camera, not a gun!

5. Me, too. I don't get hunting at all. The only excuse is hunger. Seems like in the last ten...

... years I've seen a lot more wild turkeys and larger groups.

I'm getting more and more vegetarian in my old age. I've seen too many feed lots and factory chicken operations, and they make me feel shameful.

8. I've had hunters say it's more humane to hunt wild turkeys than eat factory farm raised ones.

I must admit, though I don't like hunting, that they have a point. The wild birds live freely until the end and are probably healthier for the person eating them, too - not pumped full of antibiotics.

7. My wife'll tell you I catch spiders and release them onto the back porch, I feed the stray cats ...

... I used to love fishing and don't fish anymore, I rescue lizards from our inside or back porch only cat ... I have no desire to even kill that dang grasshopper that keeps chewing on the Rose outside my front door. Do harass him to encourage him to move, though.

One night I left the screen open on the back door so the cat could go in and out and had to catch and release about twenty bees. I don't knock down the wasp nests.

Killing anything is just plain not in me anymore.

9. Had me nervous for a second

We should be mocking and deriding Trump supporters, disproving their lies, not attacking them with firearms.
