You know, I am really torn on this subject and actually do struggle with it.

I love venison...I love elk/caribou...I love pheasant...I love duck. However, I love animals and especially watching them in the wild...I know for sure I can't actually shoot anything myself, so does that make me a hypocrite? I do a lot of camping and unfortunately see the aftermath of what the poachers do I feel now days, there is no real reason to hunt for survival with the shelves all stocked up at the Coop. Having said that, cows and pigs are cute too...not so much the turkeys and chickens, but does that mean we should only kill ugly mean animals?

You see why I am torn? I am a carnivore...I eat meat and that isn't going to stop. What type of meat...what type of animal dies and how they die for food is what I struggle with and I have a feeling that isn't going to stop either.

As for your brother...I am not sure if hating him is the issue...I think you struggle with the fact that he kills animals that need not be killed when there is plenty of meat at Coop...more the action than the man...as for making fun of it...brothers do annoying things to piss their sisters off because they are

...or maybe he is a psychotic ***hole and I am completely off base
