On hunting yes and no. I didn't hunt with a firearm at my first duty station. I was station at RAF Fairford in the UK in 1985-86. I was in the security police and we also patrolled RAF Little Risington which was about 25 miles from Fairford. L.R. wasn't in use so a lot of the flight lines and what not were overgrown. Hares, rabbits and pheasants every where. Several times I ran into local English guys hunting with what they called catapults and we call slingshots. Wasn't long until there was 5 of us heading up there on our off time hunting. We had a ball once we learned to hit any thing. Amazing what a powerful slingshot will do when you know how to use it. I still shoot slingshots to this day and took 8th place out of 28 shooters in the US. championship in 2012. Or was that 2010? Geeze I'm getting old.
Later station at Pease AFB in N.H. I did a lot of hunting and fishing. Hunted Maine as well. Had a great time all around.
Later in the Army....well, different times and very serious, had no fun at all.
