the people that bug me the most are the anti-hunters.:mad: . A magazine that i just got tells me how to debate a anti-hunter. Its says the following- 1) hunting is a more humaine way of killing an animal. Its worse coming from other predators. 2)Hunters have decided to get INVOLVED with nature instead of OBSERVING nature. 3)Hunting also helps in the long run. wild life preservation and conservation. It controls the herds. 4)anti-hunter might say why would you kill a beautiful animal or why don't you respect them? the answer is purly this- native americans respected the buffalo and what did they do to them?thats right they killed them. 5)then they might say that they needed to kill the animal for survival. Well the killing will still continue just out of sight. Meat slaughtered and cut up to be shiped out to fast food chains and grocery stores. Hunting is a more honest way of eating meat.

hunting the animals is okay, but hunting them to extinction is bad , there must be some control about that

I personally am not in favor of hunting wild animals for the mere sake of achieving a pychological sense of power. If it is for food, then I am not opposed.

However, human civilization is slowely but surely taking over and destroying the natural cycles and tiping the natural balances on this planet. The nature of our kind is too strong to yield to natural forces and hold back in it's effort to dominate those living down in the food chain

You've got a good point about the meat industry having "blood on its hands," and the majority of Americans being clueless about their practices. We should, thus, seek to eat less meat or at least to be concerned about the practices of the meat industries... Note: I like meat. It tastes good. I'm even salavating right now about the idea of tearing into a nice big juicy hunk of beef. :talker: I like a nice steak with steak sauce now and then. I'm sure some Britons on this forum will be like "how? it's all poisoned!" but this is the advantage of being an American (at least for now). :D So don't you dare call me some "tree-hugger Gaian vetegerian hippie"! I know some right-winger here was thinking of calling me that. Just pre-empting you. winkx.gif

i am a repulican. lol. and i am not calling you one. lol. my point is that there are less humaine ways of killing animals other than hunting. "its just an honest way of eating meat". I am in hunters ed right now and the thing that they stress are being a ethical hunter. which if you dont know what that means is doing the right thing when no one is looking. It also stresses practice of which they mean by getting off a quick clean kill reducing length of death. What did the early day americans or even what ever country you come from did when they didnt have those large producers? what the meat fell out of the sky? No they had to go out and shoot something in order to survive. then you might say well they needed it. but like earlier said. It happens anyway. what happens when you go and eat at a barbeque and bought the meat at albertsons. Someone had to kill it. yes there is a way to conserve wildlife game. its called WILDLIFE PRESERVATION AND CONSERVATION. where i live(idaho) you can only take one deer a season. but you can take one mule deer, 1 whitetail....if you want to pay for the tags.

I am a hunter. I think that hunting wild animals like deer, elk, bear and ect should have a limit yes. Just remember, its not the hunters that are driving some animals into extinction. Poachers are handy for that. I actually think hunting keeps some species from going over populated. The problem is, is when people move to a certain place, and things arent close to the same to what they had it back at their former home, like hunting, so they want to change things that the residents of their new home have been doing for years upon years with very, very little problems back to what the new residents feel is "safe" and what it used to be like "back home"...

You don't know very much about hunting then do you? Hunting deer and getting a deer lisence believe it or not is actually helpin the animals. Say there are a 100 deer on an area of only 50 acres. Over the winter all of the food gets eaten leaving not enough food for the whole herd and they all die. So 25 deer are killed by hunters thus leaving enough food for 75 deer and not having all 100 deer die. Deer licenses are issued out to places where there is an over abundance of deer and not enough food to support them all. So hunting is actually helps, i do not agree with hunting animals that are rare and could become extinct though.

Um, I really can't think of anyone that hunts and kills a deer and thinks to himself "Yes, i just kicked a deer's ass!"...

OMG FINALLY SOMEONE. THANK YOU FOR PROVING ONE OF MY POINTS:bows: :bows: :) :) :) yea i dont think that stalking on some deer or posting for it then shooting it when it doesnt know that you are there is much of a moral booster. I do agree with roar and what was said about saving the deer. like it or not it does help in the long run. People just see the deer getting shot and they think that all of them are going to be extinct. NOT TRUE! You must also think about the ethics of being a hunter. there is something called fair chase which means that the animal has a greater chance of getting away than the hunter does harvesting it.

I can...my older brother. Just because you don't have any experience of such people doesn't mean they don't exist.
