OK...for the sake of the "example".....let's say it's a guy you shoot 3D with. You shoot 3-4 times a week (in the off season). You find out about his hunting "escapades" only recently.

You don't have each other over for dinner.....but you're "friends".
In the above situation, YES I would turn him in .

I won't speak for the Preacher, Bruce.....but I'll say this....

Ethics means doing the right thing.....when even doing the wrong thing isn't against the law. It also works the other way.

If I thought for a MINUTE someone was hunting ANY TIME .....because he needed the food to feed his family........

...........God Bless him.

If you knew someone was a thief (isn't killing to many bucks the same as stealing) would that be OK. If we are going to compare, lets compare like crimes. Speeding isn't stealing, taking game animals you are not allowed to take is. You are stealing the state's game animals.

Bruce, do you put the guy that is shooting deer to feed his family up there with a murderer? Do you guys blow in your friend for going over the speed limit or not wearing his seatbelt when you are with him?
So, you are saying it is OK to break the laws you don't agree with but not OK to break the laws you do agree with?
'll answer your question after you answer mine, Bruce

Rickmur:

I've been hunting deer not 3 seasons, yet. When I pose a question like this....it's for a reason. I'm trying to get the pulse of my peers.

And seven......if you're a TRUE friend of mine and Lisa's......there's a reason. We respect you AND your spouse. An acquaintence?.....where I don't know your spouse????...well....when we hear of people cheating....that's all we'll ever be....."acquaintences". I'll tell you this.....if my friend tells me he's cheating on his wife.....I just lost a "friend".

But that'sjust me.

I aksed this question because it's real, to me.

If I had a friend that felt like he needed to break the law to feed his family then I would help provide them with food. Lets be real, there are many ways to provide familys with food without having to steal it. I know it sounds noble and all that to say If he were hunting for food but the reality of it is that hunting deer does not provide vegetables, fruits, grains, etc. It only provides meat.
