Thanks for your valid input Phil as always and i have to agree with your points, i to shoot but mainly clay pigeon these days which tend to be a bit chewy to eat , however i do know that regulated shoots breed free range birds specifically for the purpose of game shooting, these birds are allowed to live as normal birds should and are fed and protected from shooters until its time for them to be released, i've been game shooting and found it a lot harder than sport shooting, the odds are strongly in the birds favour especially when its mean behind the trigger

Nonsense, Rich - you're clearly not accustomed to dining in the finer eating establishments of the UK. As Jamie Oliver will tell you, the secret to success with any dish of wild clay pigeon is the preparation. Particular attention should be paid to selecting a freshly shot clay and preferably one that has not been too badly fragmented by pellets. I would recommend a hanging time of no less than one week to allow the clay to develop its optimum texture and maturity for the table. Secondly, one should always marinade the clay overnight in salt water in order to dispel the taste of tar and pitch, which can taint the flesh of the clay and render it inedible. Cook under a medium grill for 20 minutes and serve with a fresh side salad garnished with game chips. Enjoy!

Well put Phil -
Can't beat a freshly caught mackrel or bass! ("Beat" as in "better" before anyone gets upset! )

This is the reason I;m saying this. I went diving the other day to take some photos on a wreck that USE to have many fish on it (not the day before yesterday). It was completely empty. Even the resident concar had gone SHAME!

nobber?

Nobber? Which means? Anything as endearing as "condescending buffoon"? Hmm. Gentlemen: No one but a complete jackass advocates the slow death of anything, cows, fish, or flies, for that matter. Anyone with whom I venture out will dispatch his game as quickly and "humanely" (if killing something can be humane...) as possible. However, as a practical matter ugliness sometimes happens; even the best of shots cripples a pheasant or deer now and then and it pains me to think of the beasts running about with his buttinski full of buckshot. Big halibut can be shot, and that is often cleaner, but bouncing around in a boat with a pistol is not recommended in the safety books. Ever shoot a hole in your tube, or worse yet your fishing partner? Yikes! Life is just not a perfect place, though we do have our responsibilities to make it as much so as possible. Forward and onward. john

Manos - Isn't sea overdived by all the ignoramous divers without us adding to the destruction? If you want to get a photo of a conger why don't you use the library. Is got plenty there and you are not in danger to damage your boat

My point - it's more fun to do things yourself, some fish some dive some take photo's. I do all three but don't judge others.

Anyway if god hadn't wanted us to kill and eat animals he wouldn't have made them out of meat.

never pollution, is it?

Nope. The depletion of animals in areas of the sea never has anything to do with pollution, encroachment by mankind (and subsequent loss of habitat and food), global warming, etc. It is always those nasty individuals who go get their own fish once and a while. I wish someone would outlaw those individuals, or harpoon them. Instead they could stay home and *(&^, making more little mouths to feed, who would need more materials for them to consume, etc. Hey! Maybe we could then outlaw *(&^*%#, too, so the humans would disappear and then all would be fine again; just like in The Beginning. What a plan!

This is the reason we have super markets I think we passed the stone age a few million years ago
