I've been hunting once in my life. i shot a cat. My buddy had a couple of birds in a cage. they lived near the drakensburg mountains in South Africa. these cats used to break the cage and eat the birds. at least two or three times a week. so the one night we went out with his dad to go find a cats/cats and get rid of them. it was my turn. i shot. i missed. but shot a cardboard box into obblivion! :D that was fun. I've never been "Hunting" after that.
I didn't make it!
Sounds like you need a 20, maybe even only a 48, guage shotgun.
Delta Force;3249984I don't think one should kill something just for recreation. If you want to shoot go target shooting, if you want a fight go do some amater boxing. But I find it barbirious to shoot something with a large calibar gun and it is still walking around untill it's lungs fill with blood. What is the fixation with hunting? The want to shoot a living target? I just don't get it.
I agree. Unless the person either eats it or puts the animal to good use then I think it's stupid. Like how Jill said they need to hunt them to keep the numbers down so they don't run out of food. That's balancing nature(after we've ruined it) but just thinking "whooooo ima go kill me some deer!" just because you get the blow the head off an animal is wrong. It's just a way people get to feel power and supremacy over other things.
We don't have hunting season here thankfully.
Marine Sniper15;3255811Yea you really have to be a certain kind of person to go hunting. A lot of people wouldnt be comfortable killing an animal, or they wouldnt be able to pull the trigger when they have a chance to. This is also known as buck fever. I just hope I wont freeze up when I have my first chance to get a deer.[/QUOTE] True, I am one of those, I might be able to pull the trigger, but I'd likely end up grieving the victim for a couple of days.
Meh, now I feel bad for all those innocent creatures killed by evil hunters. :( [QUOTE=Ma Deuce;3255949]Those people are called women.
Not all of them...

yup happend to me the second time i went hunting, i had a group of whitetail deer in my sights about 160 yrds (cant recall exact) from my position i looked for the buck as i did the 1st time, and when i found it was in the middle of all the fawns, so i waited several mins. to get a clear shot, finally it moved away from the rest and as i proceeded to take the shot, i started getting nervous and shakey, my brother kept hissing at me to take the shot. i didnt know why i just froze and i started bitting my lips. i looked down at the ground and thought about more then anything else "tomales" especially those made with deer meat, so i looked down the scope once more took a deep breathe, and placed a good shot that the buck instantly dropped. we waited a good 30-40mins, and sure enough another whitetail came back to the place where i had put the other deer down,maybe to investigate and see what happened, at this time my brother had the rifle .300 mag, and took it down with no hesitation. ive been hunting for a few years now and i always wonder why i froze at that moment.
