Hunting, your veiw on it?

I don't really enjoy doing it but the venison is worth it, and will keep you fed for a long time.

My parents are against it, so I've never gone and I wouldn't if given the opportunity, either. I'm more against factory farming than I am hunting. I've also never met a hunter that wasn't some backwoods uncultured honky-tonk loving weirdo. It also weirds me out when people post pictures of their kill online.

Thankfully I wasn't raised in the south... no telling how I'd be.

I think hunting is fine, families I know live off wild turkey, deer, and pheasant.
I myself can't stand the site of blood and guts which is part of hunting, furthermore I couldn't rob something of its last breath.
But if left alone these animals would become ill, overpopulated and put humans at harm. Which is different topic.

So please come and get yourself a turkey or deer, or even a coyote!

It's ironic that sometimes the more educated one is, the further from reality one gets-- and the greater distance one tries to put between one's self and the supposedly unilluminated unwashed masses. It's amazing to me how prevalent is the "noble savage" and other similar myths-- that nature (or Nature) is harmonious, idyllic, peaceful, and that we'd somehow be better off without the trappings of what makes modern civilization possible (not that we cannot improve upon or reform what we have, or that mistakes haven't been made).

I've gone fishing a number of times before, but I've never hunted in the usual sense of that word. Nonetheless, I've no illusions that my diet and indeed my basic survival has rested and will continue to rest upon the deaths of uncounted numbers of other species, from microbes to plants to cattle. I'm also quite sure some other living things wouldn't hesitate to kill me if given the chance and it suited them to do so, for whatever reason. As a matter of being a good steward of natural resources, I'm all in favor of hunting if one uses the prey to good purpose (e.g. food, clothing, medicines, tools, even artistry), but not for entertainment solely or if deliberately wasteful. I'd also favor moratoriums on hunting of, or even consumption of certain species in order to preserve overhunted/overfished populations for future generations. If the chance should ever come, I'd hunt-- can't say I'd specifically seek out the chance, though-- I've enough to do in my life as it is. Should I decide to try my hand at hunting, I'd learn first to shoot my bow accurately (or firearm, if I ever own one) and reliably to effect a kill shot on the first try, and probably I'd have to learn other skills as well in order to be even a minimally competant hunter. I'm quite sure one can't just waltz out into the woods and expect to bring back something without getting lost, injured, or even killed or just wasting one's time (or shooting one's friends by mistake, as I hear occasionally happens).

I think it's like learning to shoot people. Good to know how, but best to not do unless it's really necessary.


(I've never learned either, though )

I only think hunting is acceptable if your going to eat it


agreed, i wont shoot anything i dont plan on eating. Pheasant and deer are delicious, turkey is ok but wild turkey isnt quite as good. Buffalo on the other hand is AMAZING, pain in the ass to gut tho, your damn near crawling inside the thing to gut it

Hunting is fine by me....as long as it's hunting animals not in the endangered list.

Also, you can't let your game go to waste.

I think sport hunting is stupid. hunting for food is good, but I myself won't go hunting. I've done it before, and I'm just not the type of person who can sit in one spot without doing anything for prolonged periods of time.

personally, I find it funny when a person says they're against hunting, yet they have no qualms about eating supermarket meat. how is hunting a wild animal any more "cruel and unusual" than what farmers do to their mass produced cattle stock? it's actually more humane. not only that, but the meat is better for you.

I think it's wrong.

I recently had a pet just passed away... and it was a devastating experience for me. I'm still grieving even though it's been 5 months.

In the last moments of her life, she was holding on to dear life, and it made me realise how much every animal wants to live. How precious life is.

And to take that away is just cruel.

lol humans the only ones who kill for fun? That's a load of crap. Lions? Yeah they'll kill their own children just to bang the mom. Blue jays? yeah they drop eggs and steal nests. And Dolphins...the nefarious dolphins, hippies greatest ally. You are aware that they very much kill just for sport and no other reason. Also, they kill each others young. The list goes on, we ain't that great but we're on top of the food chain so if you want to go and exert your dominance on some animals? Be my guest, has zero impact on my life.

I personally think each package of meat you buy in the grocery store should have a picture of an animal's face on the label. Not because I'm some hippie who is against killing animals but because of how out of touch society is with how the world really is.

The animals that you eat from stores are more brutally treated than ones off frolicking in the wild before I shoot it down, skin it, and eat it. The animals I kill are given a chance to experience life and all of it's enjoyments. Sure it won't grow old but it will get turned into a tasty dinner.

Anyone who has eaten meat should go out and shoot a few deer/hogs. Hunting deer/hogs is a great way to get meet and personally it's a lot of fun. Some people think these animals are "cute" and as such refuse to shoot them or can't bare the thought of it- you're wrong. These animals are annoyances and if not properly taken care of will potentially kill you, your car, or perhaps someone you know.

Animals are tasty. You eat them- don't be a hypocrite. Shoot them. K thx
