And of course people are calling for his head. All sorts of 'righteous' indignation. I wanted to post the thread that I found really interesting. I think the final line in my quote here is AWESOME. I don't hunt myself but i know most of you guys do so you may find it amusing.
I'm a hunter. i hunt squirrel, rabbit, deer, ducks, turkey. Just about any damn thing i can eat.
I fucking HATE trappers. Unless you're trapping humanely in a cage, fuck you.
Why do you hunt? I'm not being a troll or anything, I'm just wondering, whats the drive behind it?
I'm a hunter and will chime in. It's extremely fun to use a weapon to take down an animal that you can clean and eat afterwards. It's not one single thing. It's the work you put in to setting up decoys when shooting waterfowl, it's the camaraderie with your hunting buddies and family, and it's the years of target practice you've put in to be able to quickly swivel in any direction and shoot something out of the air or the ability to lead a deer and put your bullet right on target. A hunter really shouldn't have to justify himself, people have been killing animals for thousands of years it's our right as long as it isn't destructive to the animal populations. If you eat meat you absolutely aren't allowed to criticize hunters period. I would never shoot an endangered or threatened animal.
i eat meat, do not hunt, and find people who kill for pleasure to be socially backward and potentially dangerous. why should i not be able to say so? the difference in my habit is simply i don't enjoy taking the life of an animal.
Good for you, we aren't. I find people like you socially backwards. Your habit is to eat things and not think about where they came from, that's about as backwards as it gets.
