I used to go hunting a lot. I was a very good wing-shot. I lost the taste for ducks and geese. Most all wild game tastes like old liver to me now so I don't bother to hunt. It also costs a ton of money now days.
I stick to fishing, less money.

So there has been a lot of "debate" recently in the UK over the ban of fox hunting after minister David Cameron attempted to repeal the fox hunting ban. Basically a bunch of upper class, pretentious wankers think they should have the right to hunt foxes and us normal people think it's completely inhumane and pointless. I mean to be honest it's less about the actual fox hunting and more about some stupid class war that some cling to in this day in age (which in itself is pathetic).

The foxes are hunted down by a pack of dogs and men on horseback with riffles. (That's hardly fair is it. It's not even sporting it's just mindless slaughter) I could maybe understand if fox populations were heavily inflated and were having an impact on the eco system, but they aren't...

What's your outlook on hunting? Honestly i think it's kind of stupid, there is no need for hunting as farms exist. The only exception i can see for this is a camper fishing or hunting for food (and even then it's a push), otherwise it is pointless savagery. The idea of hunting for sport just baffles me also, while i'll happily eat a steak i wouldn't want to go out into a creatures natural habitat and screw around with it by killing innocent animals for no gain other than a little bit of entertainment.

I'd like to see David Cameron put in a fox suit and hunted down, see how he likes it.

Just look at that face, why would you want to kill this little guy. :(


Yes I agree with you, for sport is kind of dumb unless the population is over inflated having an impact on the ecosystem, for example. We have that problem in alaska with the black bears killing all the moose so in some areas you can kill up to 3 black bear per person and the tags are free, although if i do it i don't just want to kill them i want to use the fur or meat or something.

also chasing them down with dogs and on horses? thats a bit excessive for a fox, if they have to do all that for a fox then they aren't real hunters.

I believe it's fine to hunt for something that is causing harm to other organisms or if it's some invasive species that keeps spawning and ruins the natural species and habitat. As for "fun," would rather have people catch something then release it.

I don't mind people hunting as long as they make use of the entire animal they hunt. Indians had a respect for the animals they killed that people in this day and age don't. They used every part of the animal they hunted. They used the bones for powders, weapons and tools. The skin for things that should be obvious to anyone with a high school education. The entrails were used for things though I can't remember off the top of my head what it was used for, perhaps bait or something.

As long as the hunter uses the animal for as many things as they can I think it's fine. People who go out "hunting" just to get a kill then leave the carcass there to rot deserve to have their license revoked. I say hunting in quotes because those types of people aren't hunters, they're just murderers. And not in that meat is murder kind of way, but if you're killing something just for the sake of taking its life, then you're a murderer.

They're not endangered, and they won't be with hunts only happening in season, they have a chance to repopulate. They are vicious sheep killers, and living on a farm, I have seen legs of sheep over here, a head there...each sheep has a value of around £200, and they average a kill per night. Sometimes they even kill calfs, or injure them devaluing them. Imagine £200-500 melting away in your pocket every day, that's what it's like.

Hunting as in sports? It does seem interesting. Needing to be careful, watching the wind so they dont get their scent on you.
Finding a perfect shot, and POW! HAHA! Dead. Loot the dead deer and go home. Of course, hunting too much is bad.

And why shouldn't we hunt for food?
Animals hunt for food, as should we.

For food, clothing, and medicine only! Killing for fun is just sickening.

In that case it's very justified because they are a genuine problem.

Yup they are. I hunt on horseback myself and I don't feel bad at all because I know how they can ruin farmer's produce. We had 20 chickens on the farm and a few dozen chicks, one fox killed 12 of them in one night. A few of the chickens were champions at agricultural shows.

I don't have a problem as long as it's for food or some other legitimate reason, and it's not just for "sport". I have much respect for people who hunt for their food. But I have zero respect for people who find joy in murdering living things for their amusement or to exploit the animal for valuable parts of it.
