Are there Hounds out there that hunt and fish?

I've been reading about qualms about boiling live lobster, pulling heads off live shrimp, fear of dead fish, and disdain of handling raw meat and offal. I hunt, fish, dig clams and pick mussels and mushrooms. I'd rather accept the responsibility of killing an animal with the knowledge of what I have done than buy meat wrapped in clear plastic and ignore the pain and suffering animals to which animals are subjected by agribusiness. I respect vegetarians and often cook veggie meals for one of our kids and the rest of us. I don't take poor shots and drop the animal. When the kids were younger, we called deer "happy meat" because it was happy until it died. Organic too. Am I alone in this, does anyone else understand? Take it easy on me, I'm no Konan.
