Ah the whole thing is ridiculous. I mean I support hunting for food, OK ya I get it. Not to sure about the sport part or the danger part. Lets face
it, it ain't much of a sport. I mean there is no competition here, even lions or bears or other dangerous animals with the gear and training and a bit
of time, well a child can kill them now a days with a high powered rifles or compound bows out there alone.
I mean there wild animals, ie, there is a thinking process difference between humans and other animals in the millions of years of evolution. If you
fail to kill a lion with all that guy was geared up with and with his tracker bring it out for him, and everything else you really really suck, may as
well align the sights for him as well. You would not even need to be all that practiced with a bow to hit a target that big either most especially in
a situation like that while there feeding.
The only real danger you would be in is if you were completely careless and just happen to run into a wild animal at random while on a hunt, then your
in its world, but then again if your armed with all that stuff, even a close call I would say is leaning in the hunters favor. Even bears and lions or
mountain lion or any other more dangerous animals out there. Well they got the brains of what would be the equivalent of a 5 yr old in human terms. It
is no competition if you actually go out there and plan ahead in hunting any of these animals.
Literally all you have to do is drop some bait wait around and shoot it when it shows up, the animal is not even smart enough to understand the
concept of trap or bait like I said the mind and brain power of a 5 year old and all its prowess is purely instinctive nature and biology, which in
this day and age with assault rifles and compound bows and all kinds of weapons and ways and contraptions means absolutely nothing.
The only way it would even come close to it being a close call. Would literally be if they were on the same level as humans, that is if that lion or
bear or whatever had a few thousand dollar compound bow at his disposal and was capable of thinking in abstract thoughts, and could actually plan
ahead instead of just being purely based on instinct and conditioning, then ya. But it does not, on a mental and every other level its really about as
smart as a bag of rocks.
The only real actual hunting equality or sport I would see were I could actually call it sport would be something like if another species came to
this planet, and they were on the same level as humans ie they had cities could build technologies like sniper rifles and and productions plants and
planes and bombs and everything. And then decided to hunt humans, they can do something like put out some bait. You know go to there alien stores buy
some human food or something humans covet, like lets say a cheeseburger or corvette or even the whole nature calls thing, when they hunt moose and
bucks they do it when they are in matting season and use fake calls, the aliens can do the same, set up some captured females out there for bait ain
the concrete jungles and wait, after which when humans come around they shoot it from there ship with there laser gun in the neck and presto, they
bagged themselves a human. That right there would be a more equal terms and hunt.
Then in that sort of situation it would be a sport or hunt, one which our mighty hunters would likely lose by miles. This however is far from being an
equal situation. I mean wild animals are dangerous, but not when you got literally over 20 thousand in high tech gear at your disposal and another 50
thousand for somebody to track and bring out the animal for you and what your hunting has the thinking power of a 5 yr old. Its basically shooting
ducks with expensive equipment in the backwoods. Like the guy in your vid said, its not about know how, its just about how much your willing to spend
and how much money you have.
I mean I support hunting for food. Even for sport, but only if it leads to something out of it besides just the kill. But purely for sport its
pointless, its pointless because what your hunting is just so freaking stupid any ill devised plan and half ass equipment would bag you a kill, I mean
sure it takes some skill, and training, if you want to get good with a bow or gun it may take years of shooting. But still, what your hunting is just
a big dumb animal, its kind of no brainier. May as well take that 50K and pay for a helicopter ride and buy yourself a high powered machine gun and
fly by and shoot it down from on high, not that much of a difference really between the two. In fact I heard its how Sara Palin hunts up in Alaska,
and if she can do it, # any retard, or even a child can do it.
If these animals were any smarter instead of going for the bait hanging on a jeep or on a tree all the time they would think "hold up? This does
not look good! I may just creep around that suspicious bush there and see whats behind it first" But it does not because it is not even capable of
thinking that or at all beyond anything.
In such case, its a no brainier. Its not hunting or even a sport really its just paying a # load of money to give people a thrill when in reality
there is a almost zero chance of danger when you add up all factors in these hunts up. Like I said the only way it would be a danger was if they were
just wondering by in there hunt and they happened to run into the lion 10 feet from them at random. And even then with all they were equipped with and
had at hand, should still be an easy kill.
