@garygary I totally agree. After a long time with thought but no action I recently changed my way of life to stop eating meat unless I’ve caught/killed it myself.
If I can choose the correct deer, and kill it quickly while it’s grazing totally free, I’ll take that any time over a supermarket steak. The process of shooting, butchering and freezing really drives home what you’re eating.
The great irony is that I am a target for the general public as a person in the countryside with a gun. They dont stop to think I do it because I hate the suffering factory farming inflicts both to the eaten animal as well as wild species (foxes, badgers etc) … Personally i think if you can’t kill it yourself then you shouldnt be eating it.
