I am an ethical hunter and all of the birds I take have a fast, painless death. I believe that hunting brings me closer to God and makes me realize that in order to eat, I must take something God has provided. While it may not be meat one is eating, you are still taking something from God's creation. I do not simply kill to see birds fall out of the air. If I wanted to do that I could buy some domestic ducks and just shoot them.
In the last hunting season, I spent over $1,000 on hunting equippment such as shells (the least expensive), decoys, bags, new gloves, food, and other tools directly related to hunting ducks. These expenses do not include gas or anything vehicle related.
One may wonder why I do this, I just tell them that they can come along all expenses paid.
I would be more than happy to show you some footage of a wonderful hunt if you would like.
Oh yes, and please post my picture with Jim Smith's.
