I would have felt bad about the mockingbird too.

Nice post Ins. I liked the line about yelling "duck" instead. There was a joke about this same thing but for the life of me I can not remember it. Anyway I think the way you see this is correct.

Roughly 10 years ago, I was playing a beautiful golf course in Henderson, Nevada, and actually hit a mockingbird in mid flight - killed him dead on the spot. Funny thing; I've been hunting different types of birds with my dad since I was about 4. and I've killed literally thousands of birds during that time ( I eat almost everything I shoot). Anyway, killing that poor mockingbird with a ball hit with my 4-iron caused me more grief than any bird I killed prior to that.



There are several houses along the golf course where I live that have dozens of craters in them from stray tee shots (three homes have been hit more than 100 times). I am absolutely certain the golf course [doesn't think] they're responsible for any damage caused by golfers. I would absolutely cherish the day I find out differently and can hold them accountable.

I imagine the golf course would have made sure they were protected before even placing its course there. I know in all the games (football, baseball ) we go to both professionally and unprofessionally it always says things about "at your own risk".

I am glad you eat what you kill. I am from a family that loves to hunt and believe if you kill it you should eat it...not just do it for the fun of killing something. I would have felt bad about the mockingbird too.
