Take it easy guys, no reason for anyone to get too crazy in here after you've said your opinions on hunting. Let's let this die, or let others try to bring in a fresh perspective rather than arguing.

Hey cooler, you may or may not know it but you basically agreed with everything I said in my first post


All that coward stuff you said . I said that



And the evolution comment.


We aren't the only ones who evolved. Evolving shouldn't be held against us like your making it out to be. So because we're smart enough to create something we shouldn't be considered top of the food chain? What makes us not the top of the food chain?

Being on top of the food chain holds no bias towards being more evolved or the smartest. It just so happened that we happened to be all that. Could easily have been some other species who had some sort of greater intelligence with the capacity to kill anything else and all the while take minimal damage to its own species

@cowcatcher

All cordial here man

The !!! And "seriouslys!" Just theatrics

I love ya George but this is one of the most misguided ignorant posts I have ever read. First off who are any of you to judge hunters yet your a fan of a sport that no matter how you look at it really is nothing more then Human cock fighting? A sport that has faced so many critics now all of a sudden you guys want to attack Hunters? Secondly it is not at all easy to get behind a Gun and kill an animal. It can be made easier for sure and is much harder then with a bow. But you do realize they are in the african desert in extream heat with little to hide them and predators everywhere if anything its far harder then your average deer hunt. Lastly Big Game Hunting is big money all over the world Countrys like the ones in Africa can use all the money they can get. I'm shocked at everyone is on their high horse.



Well for one, MMA is consentual. Both fighters agree to meet in the ring and fight, unlike cock fighting. There's a choice involved, so I dont see the comparison. The animal doesnt have a choice in hunting to be picked off by some drunken red neck.

Second, LMAO @ "its not easy to get behind a gun and shoot an animal". Are you kidding me? With all the scopes and sights they have now adays, its easy as hell. Youre making these poachers out to be the victims in all this?

Third, the whole "this provides income for Africa" argument is bullshit. Pollution generates big money for companies because they can cut corners, does that make it right to poison our planet? They could easily just turn these shooting ranges into safari excursions for tourists and still make money. Defenseless animals dont need to die. Typical fuckin Americans no wonder you have the highest gun homicide rate of any country.

You don't have the slightest clue what you are talking about if you really believe this. Have you ever hunted anything? If you think it was too easy for Hughes on this particular hunt, I would probably agree with you but it can be incredibly hard to stalk deer/elk ect. In fact the majority of tags for big game go unfilled because unless you get lucky there is nothing easy about trying to legally take an animal that has literally been hunted since it existed. I wish it was as easy as you think it is.

And drop the "typical American" bullshit, that is such a weak card to play because you have the privilege to get to know thousands of us here on this site, should I assume that you don't like any of us?Are we all the same? YOUR country has plenty of its own problems so how about you worry about them and lay off the "bitch about the US" bandwagon like it is an original concept. And where do you get your information? Please post your source about the US having the highest firearm homicide rate out of any country.

Congrats, youre ahead of Mexico, Columbia and Jamaica The rate is still ridiculously high.

As for the easiness of hunting, perhaps I was generalizing. Most hunters I talk to use salt licks to attract deer so they literally walk right up to you so you can shoot them at point blank range. Same for bear baiting, using meat. To me, thats not hunting.

Im sure there are people out there who actually still hunt for food, but most ive seen just want to kill something to make them feel tough.

From Adrenalins Derp link, the US info was between 2004-06 while Canadas was from 92. I would like to see where each country rates as of 2011

Edit: the other chart looks like its more up to date but from which year would be nice

YOUR country has plenty of its own problems so how about you worry about them




In Canada we kill our animals like real men by beating them with bats. But only if youre a baby seal.



In all seriousness though, the seal hunt also really pisses me off.
