Yep, killing something just feels so good.

I am not a hunter. That being said, I've known five people who have benefited from Capable Partners. It's more than just hunting, it gives these people a way to get back in touch with something they've done most of their life. Many times, they're invited to take game in problem areas (places with too many geese, for example) and have a great outdoors experience, AND solve some problems that exist with too many critters in their area. - Hats off to the organization!

@yathinkso There's nothing wrong with hunting as long as you're eating the kill. What I have a problem with is trophy hunters going to Africa to kill lions and other animals just for sport.
