I'm tired of seeing people glorifying the killing of animals. Almost every day I see pictures posted of people "proud" of their offspring or
husbands/wives etc for their kill(s), complete with an image of a dead dear, eyes still open, blood drenched at the foot of a smiling killer.
Ah, so you think hunting is a criminal sport that only sociopaths and mean spirited people take part in.
I love to deer/duck/rabbit hunt. My whole family does. It's only a bad thing to kill an animal if you don't eat it. If you kill it just to kill it
then I would agree with your rant.
No one cares that these animals are desperate, seeking food for their own. No one sees "life" in these beautiful animals, they just see a 6 pointer
to put on their walls.
Not at all. Sitting in a deer stand puts people in a meditative state. You are sitting in one spot in the woods for hours on end. I have watched
squirrels playing, turkeys chasing each other, all manner of wildlife I have observed from my deer stand and I can only be in awe of the wonder and
harmony of nature.
Turns out rednecks have been practicing eastern meditation techniques without even realizing it.
Kids are having this "killer" instinct bred into them from birth, that its OK to kill animals.
It is OK as long as the animal does not go to waste. Hunting animals and killing people are two totally different things that you seem to have
connected in your head somehow.
Wouldn't it be fun if the tables were turned and these hunters became the hunted. In the middle of the forest, no clothes, no weapons nothing. Just
trying to survive while being hunted by animals.
Wow, apparently you have never hunted before because you have no idea what you're talking about.
Their natural state is no clothes, no weapons.
Hunting is one of the most challenging things you can do. Animals are very smart, and you are hunting them in THEIR habitat. They know where to go to
hide, to sleep, to eat, to mate. You have to learn about them and study them and think like one. And even then there is no guarantee. I've spent
countless hours sitting in my deer stand to see absolutely nothing pass by. That's what makes it all the more exciting when you do bag one.
And let's not forget something else....they are pests!!!!
I don't know where you live, but I live in rural Louisiana. Deer are plentiful here. If they abolished hunting season, the deer would overrun this
state within a few years since they have no other natural predators out there.
They eat peoples gardens, fruit trees, they jump out in front of cars and are a very dumb animal when it comes to crossing a highway. I've seen deer
jump out of the way of a car only to jump right back in its path.
So please tell me how buying some pre packaged steroid/antibiotic/vaccine filled grocery store meat is better for you than hunting and killing and
eating some very lean very healthy deer meat?
Or are you saying we should all just be vegans?
