Canned hunting & trapping is for weak little bastards with no morals ...
But eh I do support the A.L.F.....

Are you sure you really want to know why people hunt? Your wording in the part I quoted leads me to believe your mind may already be made up.

if you look at an animal as food then its easy to pull the trigger and mouth-watering waiting for the turkey to be deep fried or the pheasant to be barbequed.
hunting for sport is a different matter. stalking grizzly and finding a trophy that is the most massive and king of his territory and taking him down is a high that can't be beat.
you'll solidify your status as the top of the food chain and the most dominant living creature on the planet.
taking anything less than the top, top predator of an area is kind of a cheap thrill.
you shouldn't also have to justify why you hunt and make excuses like it's cheaper than buying at the grocery.
hunting is noble and pure and has been part of mankinds heritage since the beginning of history. it is a gift from God to witness and experience the beauty of His creation, the power and awe in nature and the creatures that inhabit it.
more people should take advantage of this gift, it will help you get closer to God and know what it is to be man.edit on 15-1-2011 by randomname because: (no reason given)
