Default why do you hunt?

Two parts to this:
1) why do you hunt? And
2) why do you hunt with a muzzleloader, especially if you hunt exclusively with one?

1) I dislike venison and donate the meat.
2) I hunt with a centerfire during rifle season and Muzzleloader during blackpowder season.

I hunt because I must. I guess it's a DNA thing, like looking at cleavage.

I hunt with muzzleloaders because I find them more pleasing than other options, just as some cleavage is more pleasing than others.

1- I started hunting because it is a way a life where I grew up. I continue to hunt because it's the greatest escape from the every day pressure I face in the corporate environment. No other activity gives me the degree of solitude and peace.

2- I gave up centerfires about 15 years ago. For me, it was due to the lack of challenge. I reloaded for years but that really just delayed my venture into muzzleloading full time. There's just something about making that one shot count and knowing that you have more limited range and flexibility vs a centerfire.

You'd have to be out of your mind to try and follow that answer

I like venison and i only need one shot. Availability of brass is one less thing to concern me.
