Default "You kill Bambi?" - what are your responses?

I saw this topic pop up once again on another thread on this board and thought it would be nice to have all of your responses on one main thread.

Here is my work in process...

Do you kill Bambi?

Bambi is a cartoon, but if you are asking, “Do I kill deer?” The answer is yes.
I hunt deer and if I am fortunate enough, the end result is; I killed a deer.

Nothing I say about what I get personally, spiritually, emotionally, or the nourishment I receive from the bounty that the hunting experience provides me or what my fellow sportsmen and women get from it will ever change your mind, but please consider this…

I was taught at an early age not to discriminate against ANYTHING based on looks/appearance, race, color, creed and religion among other things.
I was taught to value all animal life equally, I do not discriminate.

I do not give more value to cute little furry animals than I do to scary looking spiders, mosquitoes or ants.
I was taught to value all animal life equally, I do not discriminate

I do not give more value to a man with white skin than one with black skin.
I was taught to value human (animal) life equally, I do not discriminate.
And I do not kill humans.

I do not kill animals out of fear, hate, or ignorance as many individuals do.
I do not discriminate.

I do not justify my killing by saying, it could have bit me, or stung me.
I do not discriminate.

Everyone kills God’s creatures.

If you drove your car today, there is a good possibility you killed an ant or bug.
If you walked on a sidewalk today, there is a good chance you killed an ant or a bug.

If you ate a vegetarian meal today, there is a good chance that insects were killed in the growing cycle (pesticides) of those vegetables or in the process of getting those vegetables to the store and then to your dinner table.

Who are you to say that these lives are worth less than a deer, rabbit, turkey or pheasant?
GOD?
A life is a life, please realize this once and for all.

Because if you don’t, soon us sportsmen and women will be asking, "You kill Flik?" (A Bug’s Life).

See how stupid this would be?

How about:

I go out to enjoy nature at it's finest; when I'm undetectable to so many fine creations in the world. If I so happen to be lucky enough to havest an animal to feed my family with something so natural and virtuous, I consider myself extremely fortunate.

I don't particularily enjoy going to "the wilds" at the local zoo, where animals are kept away from their natural environment, so that those not fortunate enough to enjoy nature as stated above can PAY to see them in a decrepit state. The zoos of the 20th century were created to bring wild animals to society, when society was trying so desperatly to get out of the wilds...

So - if given the opportunity to "kill your visualization of what you consider Bambi is" I guess the answer is "YES". BUT, please don't try and tell me that the fine creature that is standing 20 yds away, looking straight at me, is "Bambi". Bambi wasn't this smart - nor this tasty....

I saw the movie "Bambi" and I got over it. I am only a link in the chain of life. I must survive and I hunt and kill to sustain my live and to make lives of the hunted healthy, smart, and strong. Only the strong survive, weather I hunt or not. If mother nature doesn't control the numbers, I must, and you don't want to see how mother nature does it, it is much more cruel than how I as a hunter do it. Good points Orion!

I just look 'em in the eye and say....

"Yes, I do. And I'm damn good at it."

Usually drops 'em in their tracks (just like Bambi).

Bambi was a fawn. It's not possible to kill a fawn because hunting seasons are in the late fall/winter.
