The ironic thing for me is I have no issues killing deer, turkeys, grouse, doves, crappie, sauger, and walleye. I kill tons of stuff each year, but for some reason I have a soft spot for trout.
Maybe it is that you subconsciously appreciate their struggle to survive in most of our local stocked waters and that they cannot adequately reproduce to maintain the take/death rate in most TN tailwaters(?)
