It's a good day out.
Nice to get out into nature.
Nice to know exactly where your food comes from.
Nice to keep the population of animals on my uncles land under control.
Nice to have a group of friends in a not-so-common activity.
PITA to deal with people who are against it though.
hunting for sport without any intention of using the kill for food is unnecessary, perhaps cruel. im not a vegan retard but dont kill something without putting its body to good use and giving its death at least a little meaning
eat what you kill, take it to a taxidermist, or don't do it at all. I prefer fishing anyways, but I've gone duck hunting a couple of times.
I haven't, but I am trying to go soon. I love eating meat and I feel like I don't deserve to eat it if I'm not able to hunt and kill it myself.
I also love animals, but everything is gonna die so that deer might as well give me a lot of meals.
I think I you eat meat you should be required to kill it.
But life technically has no meaning, unless you believe in a higher power. Why should an animal, who is not capable of conceptualizing these higher concepts deserve a meaningful death?
I know, right. I mean killing a small defensless harmless innocent animal with a high powered long range weapon while hiding in a bush is so hardcore bro xD. Them pussies just don't geddit lol.
In my country it is entirely fucking necessary as the moose population will get out of hand if we don't hunt a certain percentage of them every year. I bet you think electricity comes from the socket so we don't need power plants
>hunters contribute to local economy and upkeep of park
>legal hunters keep populations in balance without wiping them out, discourage poachers with their presence
>hippies cry about hunting and goes on a massive witch hunt
>animal population goes out of whack
its more moral than the slaughter houses we get our mcdonalds cheeseburgers from. also its a good sport, being able to kill it instantly with no suffering without ruining the meat is an impressive skill. the people who dont use the meat for anything and just shoot it to kill it is fucked up but id say the vast majority of hunters do what they are supposed to do
People who oppose hunting should be lined up and shot.
Then there won't be anymore opposition to hunting.
That way their inferior beta male genes can be removed from the ecosystem for the common good.
i once shot a bird with my sportbow and hung it in my garden to scare the other birds. fuckers needed to stop eating my strawberrys. it only worked for like 2 days sadly.
then i shot a new one, chopped its head and parts of his body up and left blood and meat in my entire garden. first they got scared by the meat and blood smells, then a fox had arrived to keep them far. i lured the fox with some meat i bought from the store and fed it to him, he kinda trusted me after 2 weeks. then i could just leave some food out from time to time for the fox to get. no birds touched my strawberrys again. the fox is long gone but i still haven't spotted a bird in my garden since then
when I lived in Kansas there was a town that banned all hunting within 20 miles of the town. The Deer got so bad they where killing at least 2 people a week in car wrecks, and got so mean in town that they where attacking people. The State Gov over turned the ban and within 2 weeks the deer pop was back under control. Deer are mean af and a pest if left uncheck.
So it's OK to require that animals die by being bashed in head and torn to pieces before they are actually brain dead while jammed into a terrifying murder factory, instead of being killed humanely at home, surrounded by their loved ones?
You sick fuck!
>small defenseless animals
Let me guess, you think a gopher, groundhog, rabbit, Prairie dog, etc. Shouldnt be killed? They are pest animals friend and they do just as much damage as a coyote.
you can get one of these next time
if its a pest bird like a starling then good job I guess. Butchery isnt torture if the bird is dead already
Hunting should not be limited to bird and fur-bearing animals. The old, weak, unhealthy/sick, autistic need to be pruned from our society. If not, we will end up like native indians - diabetic fat lazy alcoholics.
i already had tried that tactic.
first i had cut out a plastic predator bird on a string. that one was really bad tho..
then i but a net over my strawberrys, but i just have to many strawberrys and nets are expensive ( also the birds found and widened weakspots in the nets to have entrances and exits ) lasty i made a scarecrow with motion sensors and a screech sound, annoyed me like crazy and the ravens got behind it, those smartasses.
I like shooting guns. I like when it kills an animal. I like cooking delicious meals for friends and family.
I don't like just sitting there on my ass in a treestand, nor do I particularly like the smell and mess of gutting the thing.
With intelligence comes power. Humans have the ability to outsmart any other species on the planet, we are the apex predators. Therefore, we can do what we like with our prey.
I remember when I was 9 I was hunting prairie chickens with my .22 and I ran out of bullets (winged it like 3 times) and felt like shit knowing it was sitting there being shot. After that point I always wanted the animal to serve some purpose for us like eating it. I know it makes me sound like a pussy but its just my thoughts.
Implying mass-production of meat is even remotely as civilized as a simple bullet to the brain...
>> Implying hunters are evil
You do a slight bit of research into Halal meat and come back with your self-righteous bullshit. Then kill yourself
>I was 9 I was hunting prairie chickens with my .22
I don't give a shit if you do it as long has you don't make the animal suffer
But I fucking hate anyone who think that killing a animal from a safe distance is something that you can be proud of
First of all, "morals" do not exist. Humans created that concept with their intelligence. Disease is not an intelligent lifeform, they're acting upon their genetic code, just like everyone else. Humans, however, have the ability to study them, and experiment to discover ways to defeat them. Yet there are some people who would find even this morally objectionable.
THIS THIS THIS...my thoughts exactly anon. I love talking about hunting around people that dont and getting shit for it when the faggots eat at cheeseburgers from mcdonalds everyday
Pest animals and population control are two others.
Like the faggots who get bent out of shape of that dentist shooting that lion. Old lions kill cubs to assert their dominance because they ain't getting all the Nala pussy anymore.
That doesn't even make sense
Yeah but you don't see me taking pics of it and post to Facebook,or getting drunk and saying how good I'm for eating it
It kinda is
I was 2 years on the army I know how shooting works you fucking nigger
Wait you consider killing a animal that inferior to you in every way with a rife a challenge ?
Is your mom also your sister ?
And yet we can continue to develop new drug to destroy them. "Drug resistance" means they are resistant to current drugs not drugs we can develop, and if they do kill us it would be justified. They got the drop on us, i dont understand what you are trying to get at?
>dont see me getting on facebook
Yeah like youve never taken a picture of your food at a resturant.
>2 years in the army
What happen? Get home sick and file for a medical discharge because your tummy hurt?
I like hunting deer, it's good meat.
Unfortunately, the little assholes always seem to know when it's deer season and refuse to come out during daylight hours.
I haven't gotten to eat fresh deer in two years. I'm debating just sleeping in a tree one night with a knife and taking what I want when they come to feed/sleep
Hunting is great.
But wasting perfectly good food is bad.
Hunting is one of my G*d-given rights as a citizen of the best damn country in the world, the United States of America.
I believe in this, but check out this anons post also. >>684274059
Makes a great point. Some people have never dealt with deers and it's easy for them to just say leave them alone.
No ,hunting is part of the training ,I'm guessing you have no idea how the army works
Yeah ,sure when someone post a picture of food in a restaurant they always posts:wow how I'm proud of paying to eat a animal that it's inferior to me in every way
Also I got out because that shit wasn't leading anyway I was in the top 3 btw
I'm in college now
I assure you I'm better than you with any firearm you choose
I mean ,being a inbreed like you can make the things a little more fair
But just because your sister is also your wife it doesn't give the right to be proud of killing defenseless animals from distance Jimmy
What I am implying is that morals do exist, and victory should be tempered by kindness.
I implied it, so you could arrive at that conclusion yourself, and we could reach agreement, rather than argue
That, my friend, is because it is dead. I don't know about you, but I like myself disease free. Fucking a dead animal vs a live animal, which do you think is more disease ridden?
My point is that you posit intelligence as the only measure of superiority that matters, if you're the poster I responded to, and, absent some obscure moral code, that is nonsense
I hunting for fun , i love kill
you got the wrong picture there.
i never fucked anything that has been dead for more than a few hours.
necrotic tissue or disease ridden carcass are a huge turn off for me.
i prefer living animals, but i could never rape or hurt them, thats why i go for roadkill, because i still want to get some deer pussy or fox ass.
Deer didn't attack people. Don't lie. I lived 11 miles from where the ban was placed. There was never one report of a deer attack. Never happened. But we hunted the entire time the ban was in place. Just don't tell anyone.
Well, while in situ religions are clearly the product of human error, the propensity to create them is not, and the basics of all moral codes are very consistent across cultures, so show strong evidence of being, at least robust survival traits.
Notice I didn't invoke any deity there
i hate furries and i am not a redneck.
i sometimes have sex with living animals which nice too, but the only way to fuck certain animals (deer, fox, etc.) without hurting them is by doing it when they are already dead.
and the only way to get fresh dead animals without hunting for them is roadkill.
there are a few roads i frequently search at night.
fuckable dead animals are quite rare but sometimes i get lucky.
Look fam, I have lived off the land in AK, and I know I could outshoot you with your choice of weapon. Just because I don't exhibit your unearned arrogance doesn't make yours justified.
Humbling you in person might be useful to you. Not gonna bother here.
I am not competent to judge, nor is it here enough info in that question to answer it.
I'm not saying that morality is merely a survival trait. I'm saying it exists, and is important, whether or not it's created by people.
Yeah sure you can outclass me
I mean inbreed hillbillys from ak are the who always wins the shooting competitions right
I'm so sorry to made you anger ,please don't tell your mother that's also your sister to beat me
