Today I thought that I had wounded a deer that had gotten away with a gut shot. The thought of it made me feel sick to the pit of my stomach I felt truly horrendous. However the deer was found stone dead about 100yards from when it was shot. However, when out with the shotgun if I bring feathers out a pheasant or pigeon or what have you I am always annoyed with myself for wounding a bird but certainly wouldn't loose sleep over it unlike with a deer.
There is a clear double standard in how I feel so does this mean my morals are wrong? Does it make me a bad person?
How do you all feel about this? is it just me who has such double standards and why do you think they are so? size? number I have shot?
So how about you lot?
