    After reading a couple threads about losing animals, specifically deer, after going great lengths to retrieve them, and the thread berating the posting of the experiences, I have to say that I have never lost a deer, but I have committed another similar and apparently horrible crime. I feel it's time to confess.

    I have, on several occasions, gut-hooked different species of fish and couldn't release them. I know, I feel Shame and disgrace. It gets worse as I have another confession to make. I took them home and dismembered them. I decapitated and gutted them. I even went so far as to skin them and throw that away. Even Buffalo Bob would tsk, tsk me. And then, horror of horrors, I ate them. But, that's not the worst. I have shot squirrels, hit them hard, only to have them crawl into a hole and die slowly. Insensitive me didn't bring a chainsaw and do the honorable thing. But wait, killling a tree to get a squirrel has its' own measure of shame attached doesn't it?

    I don't know what to do. I've tried finding therapy groups to attend to help me with my guilt, but to no avail. I guess I'll just keep on fishing and hunting and keep on trying to be the most ethical outdoorsman I can be. I hope my fellow forum members will sympathize. I am sure that I've ruined any chance to hunt with the elite taxidermists on this site... Oh well, the price of shame. I can only try to do better.

    PS I tried to make this a funny post, but it turned out to be borderline SA. Don't mean to offend anybody, even DR. T. But, I wanted to show that crap happens no matter what you're doing.

    I'll never mess with Karma. I've seen what it's done to my cousin Earl Hickey. We seem to be identical cousins.

    I feel as though I've been relieved of a great and powerful burden. No, wait, I just took a dump. Still feeling the gut hook thing.
