I know no hunters whom hunt out of necessity, be it for food, or clothing. All hunters I know do it for "the sport". I often wonder what sort of

Now, I do see value in knowing how to do this should the day come when it is necessary, however...the whole sport confuses me...what do you get out of
it? Is it an enjoyable experience seeing a prey species die by your hand because you thought it was fun? What is the rush you get?
Lol, in enjoy the hunt and i do have fun, but i think you are incorrect, why?
Well, i think every animal who hunts have fun doing it, yes, there is a rush, hormones, and is simple beautiful to know you were able to catch your
target, watch some NatGeo, is not the hyena enjoying the hunt? the lion? the cheetah? the wolf? why is so criminal that a lot of humans feel the
Of course, i think it may be boring to use a rifle, in fact, i like to use a bow, if there were mamuths alive i will love to hunt one with an spear,
but sometimes we do need to use a rifle, remember, we may be smart but we suck a lot without weapons, not good skin, not good bones, no claws, no
horns, nothing, so sometimes we need a good real advantage.
I would use a rifle only with realy dangerous prey, but if im going to hunt a deer or a rabit, well, rifles sucks!
And that about a hunter that hunts because he enjoy to see an species dying is like saying i enjoy a hamburger because i want to see cows go
And well, the rush, you know, i think civilization will never be able to erase our hunter past and our hunting instincts, so there will be always
people like us, in ancient days maybe you would had been a gatherer
, so, don't worry, be happy, we are what we are.
P.S. I love animals, really love animals, i should had study biology, and because i love animals i understand very well that nature is not very nice,
that animals kill animals for a lot of reasons, and i really hate those people who thinks lions must eat tofu and that nature is some kind of
wonderful paradise full of love, happy faces and cute bunnies so we can't hunt because we are evil.
