At the risk of getting into trouble again for responding to one of your posts,I''m going to throw in my $.02 worth.I''ve never done any hunting while cruising,because the areas I''ve cruised in really didn''t have much to hunt.Also,the boats I''ve been on didn''t have enough refrigerated storage capacity to handle large amounts of fresh meat.I don''t have a problem with hunting though.When I worked and lived as a cowboy in Wyoming, I hunted and ate everything from Bear,to Moose.What I do have a problem with though is people that hunt,but don''t eat what they kill.Others,feel it''s not right,or it''s inhumane to kill any animal.I respect their views. When I cruise,I fish a lot.When I''m lucky enough to catch something,once I land the fish in the cockpit,I pour some alcohol in it''s gills to kill the fish. I don''t know if it''s more humane to use my rum,rather than vodka,etc.,but I hold on to my rum.If the fish is a predator like say a Barracuda,I remove the line and throw it back.I have a rule to never eat any fish that could eat me! Good luck with your hunting!
