OT- Question to those that Hunt Animals 


When you kill the the defenseless animal do you feel like a "champ"? You guys are so brave, it takes a real stand up guy to hide and kill animals when they can't see you.

I have absolutely no problem with those that do it because it is there only source of food. But c'mon, you hunters kill defenseless animals just for the fun of it.

I stopped hunting when I was about 17 years old....didn't want to kill animals any longer. And I came from a HUUUUUGE hunting family. My Dad wasn't exactly happy about it.

I do not care how it ends, just get sick and tired of these hunters coming onto this site boasting on how they just got back from killing defenseless animals. Yea...congrats on the murder. What a joke.

I hunt and enjoy the HECK out of it.
Everything I harvest gets put on the table and consumed.
Not sure what the problem is...

Re: OT- Question to those that Hunt Animals 


Is there any right answer to this?
I hunt because I enjoy it, It's a great way to get out in the woods with my dad and Brothers (and some day my sons) tojoy nature and put some food on the table at the same time.
Hunting as a whole is based on the idea that without regulation many of these animals would starve for lack of food because of competition or become so populous that more people would hit them with cars, trains etc and they would be eating peoples gardens (just ask KV about his bunnies)
Here in Alaska we have caribou that roam around in the north in herds of 1/2 million in some cases. Many of these herds don't get hunted very hard yet the herds increase and decrease by hundreds of thousands over a period of 20 years or so. This is due to them doing so well that they actually breed more animals than the food can support. Thus the young, weak and old end up starving to death.
So the theory is to regulate the population by harvesting a few for the table.

Generalizing a class of millions of people into a single common motivation is certainly unfair to many.

Having said that, I'm sure that the primal hunter adrenaline rush is a factor in many. Personally I'm not a hunter but have nothing against those who do with the exception of those who hunt rare game that are barely keeping their species alive.

I think there should be more canadian goose hunters..just sayin.  And crows, can we hunt more crows?

crow hunting will never be super big because they don't taste very good I suppose.

Killing as a sport using advanced technology is a joke, they are defenseless harmless animals but some how people get enjoyment out of it.  It's sick

If you do it to feed your family, that's one thing, if you do it from 2000 yards away with a high caliber rifle your a ****** in my book.

In the spring, I drive to farms and chase the cows, yelling "BOOGITY BOOGITY BOOGITY!" just to let them know they'll be on my grill soon.

Doesn't work so well with pigs.

Good to see that I don't stand alone on this. The only reason why I posted this was because I was getting annoyed by all the hunters boasting about their latest kill. Congratulations, you killed an animal that wasn't looking.

Heard a comedian once that compared hunting as a "sport" is similar to waking up your buddy and telling him you just beat him in Baskteball, kind of easy to win in any "sport" when the other team is unaware that they are playing tongue

But living in Iowa I also understand that hunters keep the deer population under control and without it we would have way more accidents of deer vs. car, as when the accidents go up they change the number of deers that can be killed and accidents go down. Same with other animals. So why I don't like it myself it is a neccesary evil in most states noidea

See I don't how a problem with hunting if there are valid reasons for it- like deer control. That's fine. I guess my problem is with the hunters that solely do it just for the hell of it.

Re: OT- Question to those that Hunt Animals 


I'm a hunter (and a bow hunter so don't call me a ******, whatever that is) and I can tell from your OP that you already have a strong opinion on this topic.  Anything I could say likely won't change your mind so...  maybe I'll just leave it at that.  noidea

I will say this though...  Everything I shoot ends up in my freezer and is eaten over the course of the year.  In my opinion, me hunting an animal, shooting it, and eating it is NO DIFFERENT than someone going to the grocery store and buying a chicken, turkey, or a steak from a farm raised animal that was penned up and slaughtered so someone else can eat it.  wink

The end result is the same, an animal dies, but my way was more humane and that animal actually had a chance to live free.

RE: OT- Question to those that Hunt Animals 


But I bet you feel fine eating your burger, chicken, etc knowing it was put in a 2x6 pen being force fed, not able to move and then being led to the slaughter house...what about those defenseless animals....talk about no chance

I eat everything I hunt, I only hunt deer...but harvesting a deer is WAY more fair then your slaughter house meals...maybe you should watch your own bobber?

Have no problem with hunting for food, only have an issue with those that do it just for laughs. Don't see how they feel so accomplished killing animals from a tree.

Re: OT- Question to those that Hunt Animals 


I quit hunting several years ago but I don't have any issues with those that do.
Activists against all hunting don't seem to understand some of the problems that would occur without yearly harvests, particularily deer in states like Minnesota.  Firearms season alone here generally culls somewhere between 150k and 200k deer every year.  The estimated number of deer has not declined.  The state regulates licensing and seasons to maintain population.  Eliminate hunting and numbers explode leading to several things to include increased crop damage/loss.  There are already a couple road kills each week on my daily 15 miles drive.  We'd see a lot more of those as well.

* I don't know ANY deer hunter personally that just goes out shooting them (laughs and goes home).  They all process them and eat the meat.  A few that process themselves even donate the hides in those boxes places around during the season.

Do you really think any of these guys who are boasting about their hunt aren't eating the deer they take?
Yes you feel a sense of accomplishment. There is a reason its called Hunting and fishing and not killing and catching. Its pretty difficult (unless you happen to live in a few zones that are so full of deer they are tripping over themselves, then any drunk with a gun can do it.
I hunt with both a rifle and a bow.
I hand reload my rounds for my rifle and I work on my craft as often as i can and am pretty sufficient with my weapons so that it will be as humane as possible.

Not all hunters are this way, but its just like the idiots shooting up schools and now they are trying to take guns away from the other 99% that are doing responsible things with their guns to protect themselves from criminals and their own government.
