Curious

Just out of curiosity when/why did people start stuffing leaves, grass, etc in the animals mouth before taking pictures?

It’s not how well the bow you shoot shoots, it's how well you shoot the bow you shoot.

Re: Curious

Comes from European hunting traditions.

"During the closing ceremony—the game bag—the game is laid down, with its right side facing the ground, in a rectangle defined by pine branches. There are fires at each of the four corners. With this presentation, hunters say goodbye to the game and show their appreciation for nature. Each downed animal has a small branch most often from a pine tree, in its mouth representing its last bite. When taking the game from the place where it was caught, the hunters point the animal’s head toward the natural area so that for the last time it can look at the place where it lived."

Wherever somebody’s strugglin’ to be free,
Look in their eyes ma you’ll see me.

Re: Curious

Food, water, and a whift of native american tobacco blesses and thanks the animal for giving itself. An acorn or some grass pleases the spirit of the animal for the journey.

I use an acorn or pour some water into its mouth before a short Christian prayer of thanks.

To me its shows much more respect to the animal than a 3" blood filled gash in the back of a truck Bed or blood spattered garage floor, that were plastered all over some social site.

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.
