Being a responsible hunter is something everyone should take extreme pride in.
As an avid hunter, spending much of my time within Sparta and Muskegon, it is very personal to me. It is the chance at taking an animals life for the nourishment of my family or for the betterment of the livestock on my farm, the way God intended for it to be.
The animal that I kill will no longer roam this earth. That animal will no longer breathe, breed, or even enjoy the sunshine. I take this all very serious. I respect it and am grateful for it. I enjoy every aspect of it and do not take it lightly.
When you are just starting out learning to hunt, take advise, learn and do your homework. Don't be discouraged. We have ALL made mistakes. It's a learning process. But never, ever let anyone make you feel ashamed, or less than, for trying.Their rude, inconsiderate behavior is to try and make them feel superior over you.
