    Default Critters I saw while out hunting

    Check it out:

    Fox Squirrel


    Chipmunk


    Hairy Woodpecker


    Sorry about the terrible image quality. I just had a Panasonic DMC-LZ8, a snapshot camera.

    You're supposed to shoot them with a gun, not a camera!

    Of the three animals shown, the only one that is a game animal is the fox squirrel. This is the only fox squirrel I have seen on my father's property in nearly 40 years of roaming those woods, and I had no desire to kill it.

    I killed a deer there two weeks ago, however.

    I think one of those critters might have been Peguy, maybe in the background. You know, he had an event canceled for this weekend. Who knows where he is?

    I hope you killed it so that you would eat it. Hunting for FUN is just too immoral.

    ^ Well I was being serious. To kill anyone (even a fly) for the 'fun of it' is just wrong & immoral.

    Okay, three things:

    1. Your morality of hunting makes no sense to me. Would you say that it's not okay to murder a person unless some major utilitarian goal is achieved through that murder, in which case it's okay? Truth is, if the action is morally wrong it's morally wrong, regardless of the outcome. The end doesn't justify the means, ever. If I hunt and kill and do not see that the meat from the animal is eaten, then I am being wasteful... guilty of bad use of resources... foolish. Not immoral.
    2. Yes, I cut up the venison into freezer-appropriate portions and we will be eating it through the winter; however, though we will gain from this addition of perhaps 60 pounds of meat into our household economy, we would have also survived just fine without it. So essentially, though we're eating it, I hunted the deer and killed it because I wanted to. It was fun!
    3. I'm not likely to be influenced by your judgment of my behavior in any case.

    You can try it without me, then. I was not hunting for any of these animals at the time I photographed them, nor am I likely ever to do so. The woodpecker is a federally protected species (as are all native passerine birds in the US) and illegal to kill, and I wouldn't know why you'd want to do so in any event.

    You're weird, meta.
