When do kids understand hunting?

Menthedogs A friend is wondering how to teach her kids about the connection between meat and animals, which made me wonder when kids really understand that meat comes from animals.

Certainly my 3 year old knows there's a connection between animals and the meat we eat. And he knows that Daddy goes hunting and fishing and we eat what he gets.

But yet he still thinks that Daddy shot the plastic geese decoys in the garage!
