A different type of hunting for me now.

I grew up on a ranch and hunting was not only a great recreational
activity but at times it meant having something to eat besides beans. I
can't walk well enough to hunt in the fields any longer and although I
still enjoy shooting I can afford store bought steaks. I always thought
half of the fun in hunting was getting together with a bunch of other
hunters and telling TRUE stories about our exploits in the field.

I have to use a Kawasaki Mule to get around the woods now and I spend
most of my time in the woods with a camera rather than a rifle. I have
always wondered if anyone makes a rifle mounted scope/camera that could
take a picture simultaneously with the trigger pull. Have any of you
ever heard of an item like this? Even if you decided not to shoot any
game it would be a great training aid to see what kind of trigger pull
and target acquistion skills a shooter has. Besides that having a
snapshot of a big beautiful buck with the crosshairs imposed over the
kill zone would give me bragging rights with the Bambi killers at the
local hunters bar. If any of you know of a scope/camera combo like this
I would sure appreciate hearing from you.

I will never in a million years understand the hunter's mentality.
"Here's a big beautiful buck. Let's kill him."

And I say that as a complete hypocrite who loves a good steak
more than anyone. :)

My Dad took me deer hunting when I was a young teen, and I have him to
thank for turning me into a g/d tree-huggin sumbitch. I still do big
bore hunting from time to time, but I'm not gonna say what I hit.

I love a good steak too, but it comes from a cow which was raised to be
eaten by me.

For the OP, I'm unaware of any civilian product that would suit your
purpose, but a military supplier and a bucket of cash will get you a
really spiffy 22-250 with a photo scope. Key word: sniper

I am a non-hunter (have shot in the general direction of rabbits though) but
here in Pennsylvania deer are so numerous that they are a problem. They have
to be culled. As for which one to shoot...for trophy that big buck is
great...but I doubt that would be the best for eating.

Because most of the natural predators for these animals are mostly gone now,
it is necessary for their population to be controlled. If not for hunting
seasons, there would over population problems that could cause diseases and
starvation for these animals as well as huge increase of deer to vehicle
collisions. We (humans) created the problem, we need to control it.

Not only that but in UK where I did all my deerstalking the woodmen
were relieved when they saw me or heard of me as they were ordered to
go out with shotgun in spring and 'kill' deer.
At that time of the year when gralloking, the young deer would spill
out of the female deer as all deer were shot at.

Fortunately that is a thing of the past in UK as there are laws
regarding weapons used and also times of the year for killing males
and females and now in any case I am to damned old to partake and in
Austalia too far away to shoot the deer :)
