Mls, that last line of yours made me laugh. Yeah, people want to eat meat, just don't want to know WHO they're eating!
MN, part of the reason I want to raise my own chickens/steer, is so that I know how the animals will be treated prior to them becoming delicious food.
As far as wild game hunting? I'm all for that, too. If hunters didn't thin the herds or groups, more would starve to death. Besides, that pheasant who became your dinner could just as well have been a coyote's or bobcat's meal. You merely got to it first.
A friend gave me a haunch of venison several weeks ago. For some people it would have looked too much like the animal it came from to eat it, but I didn't have a problem hacking through the joint and throwing it into my slow cooker. It was yummy!
