BLOOD BLOOD blood BLOOD bambi BLOOD yucky BLOOD

I found out today that my nephew wants hunting gear for Christmas. Guess which of his favorite aunts won't be directly sponsoring his Bambi bloodfest? Sorry, Nephew...

You can get him some good solid generic outdoorsman stuff- Like good boots, warm quilted flannel shirt- earmuffs, etc. That way he can use it for sledding and gathering firewood.

Get him a camera, instead. My husband was raised in the manly ways and has done a fair amount of hunting in his day, but now he prefers taking photos of the animals he hunts instead of killing anything.

I'm with you, Poppy. I wouldn't buy one single item even remotely related to the activity because I wouldn't want to even remotely support it. The unnecessary "sport" or "hobby" of hunting & killing animals disturbs & disgusts me to no end.

Oh man. That is a tough one. I have never hunted and never will. Just the thought of it makes me teary. I can't imagine shooting anything.
That said, a lot of people live on the meat. When I was growing up my best friend's mom and dad did not have a lot of money. They hunted and fished. That is how they survived.
I am with the above person that mentioned outdoorsman gear. Or a subscription to Green Peace. Yeah. That would be nice too!
