    I eat a plant based diet and I respect people who "live off the land." I know a lot of vegans think hunting is cruel, but...

      Was loving all things Brad. Having a hard time with my soul and killing of animals. My time to exit.

                                Everyone’s praising this guy because they think he’s a newbie to hunting but this guy has to be good I’ve hunted all my life and I can’t hunt with a double barrel all I can hunt with are pumps, over and unders, and semi autos this man is experienced.
