If I'm gonna eat it then yeah. There's no difference between killing it myself or paying a butcher to kill it for me. If it's killing something just for the fun of killing it, then no. I understand that it satisfies some primal urge in me, but I won't allow myself that pleasure. I don't even like killing a fish but I'll do it if I eat it afterwards.
Not for sport but for food yes. We get lean meat that is better for us than the hormone ridden, overly drugged factory farm meat. I also have no qualms about shooting pests. Opossums carry diseases horses can get, we shoot them. We've had dogs attack our horses twice, we shoot them. I'll shoot a snake in a minute.
