I'm gonna fish   ALOT lol

spend a few years travling for some fishing and find a LCOL area that has both salt and freshwater fishing.. I'm thinking florida panhandle.. Right now, I spend half the year in asia.. so may do that as well during the crappy winter months from feb to april lol

Hunting and killing animals will always be the weirdest human hobby to me. I guess it gives me some type of zen and feeling of superiority but sheesh, to each their own.

Are you a vegan then?

For a lot of people I know, eating hunted or fished animals feels much more ethical than buying farmer animals who were raised in potentially horrifying conditions. For many, it has nothing to do with superiority.

Personally, I just prefer not to eat meat, it’s morally a lot simpler.

I haven’t fished in years, and have never hunted, but I want to. It has 100% to do with the food source and quality of the meat... zen or “superiority” really have nothing to do with it for most.

My list:
1. Blacksmithing
2. Woodworking
3. Welding
4. Photography
5. Hiking
6. Weightlifting/yoga
7. Kayaking/Biking/etc.
8. Gardening/livestock
9. Fishing/hunting
10. Train/work dog(s)
11. Travel

I get it if you're a herbivore / some variant of & I'm a non hunter, but I totally get it as a hobby:

* Frugal

* Fresh food

* Skill element (I'm a city boy, I doubt I could successfully hunt anything without some training)

* Out in nature

It involves dealing with the side of food supply that most of "polite society" has now outsourced, but we also tend to outsource lots of other somewhat unsavoury or slightly arduous activities.

If/when lab grown meat is tastier & cheaper maybe I'd struggle with it, but right now i totally understand apex predators choosing to source food as a hobby.
