Squirrelslayer, good subject! From my own viewpoint, and being Native American, it has been a way of life. A great deal of what I depended on for food is due to hunting, fishing, and gathering, during my entire life. And, it willo continue to. Hunting is also an industry, supporting many folks. I don't know how much money in figures, but it has to be a lot of money put into the economy. Another thing, It has prepared a majority of our soldiers for the military, and some of our greatest heros owe their survival and heroic deeds traced back to hunting skills. Hunting also sharpens your survival instincts, which has been proven many times over by survivors of dire conditions. Hunting has always been a way of life for me, and I apologize to no person for it, either. A true hunter isn't neccesarily born when it comes to man. I think much of a hunter's instincts are brought out and fortunately cultivated by proud parents. You don't have to be the lead wolf, but you don't want to be the fawn, either! :)

For me, it's just a way to relax more than anything.  Yeah, I would like to get something to take home and feed my family, but just getting out where I don't have to hear anything except birds chirping, squirrels barking, and such is what it's all about.  Since I changed jobs last May, I don't have nearly the amount of stress that I used to, but it's still relaxing to just get out.  I always want and try to get something when I go out, but just matching my wits against other critters is also relaxing in it's own sort of way.  If I do manage to get something, then I know that I am a participant in nature, not just a spectator!

I AM NOT A HUNTER.  I AM A WILDLIFE POPULATION CONTROL SPECIALIST!

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

I have only hunted for one season. (now I'm an addict)  so I can't speak with a lot of experience, but I enjoy being in the woods, seeing and learning about the animals and getting to try my instincts against theirs.

even before I hunted I grew up in the woods, so I was always out there learning how to stalk, and watch animals without being seen.  I just never shot them until lately.  (grew up in a house without any firearms in it, that's why I'm a late bloomer.)

I gues that I feel conected to wildlife when I'm out there.

Firekidd, you have the instincts and a pretty good woods education already. Give your self a pat on the back for me, because you have learned the outdoors and are more than ready than some folks I have seen that have hunted for years. You admit that you don't know it all, too. That's another pat on the back,also. None of us that really enjoy the outdoors and real hunting will claim to know it ALL, because we are still learning, too. Keeps it interesting, huh?  :)

John, thank you...

And yes I agree that it does keep life interesting... I have gone to schools for different reasons, a degree, certifications and required K throught 12...
but I seem to learn more from a summer of walking in the woods that I ever did in a year of school, and the lessons are a lot more usefull to life.

I'm just happy that I was raised a country boy.
