  •  I went deer hunting once (7+ / 0-)

    Off by myself waiting for deer. I had a doe permit.
    Three deer came into sight, slowly moving closer. Standing nearby.

    I gazed at them a long time
    Knew I could shoot them all if I just had my camera with me.

    Had I been hungry and needed food for self or family I would hunt
    Frankly I was thinking then if it was cow season I might hunt, liked steak. But really cows might be more awesome then I think to gaze on
    It was the beauty and grace of the deer that made shooting impossible. Seemed so wrong to think of ending one of their lives to eat a meat I don't need or crave.
    To see these awesome, living beings...
    really wished I'd had my camera.
