 Post subject: Deer Hunting
PostPosted: Tue Nov 20, '07, 9:31 pm 
What do you think of hunters who go hunting for, and sometimes kill, deers as a sport?

Have you ever been deer hunting, or do you know someone who has?

Do you like to eat venison (deer meat)?

If I have seen the animal before I eat it, I will not eat it. It really does look gross then. Otherwise I can skip past what it used to look like before being killed and brutally cooked. XD

My father used to hunt, but it's gotten too expensive to do it in recent years. People have made a business, so those hunters that hunt for the meat have a harder time of it.

If they're doing it for no reason other than the thrill of the kill, I don't approve no matter what animal it is. If there's a greater purpose then it's okay, depending of course on the purpose and if the animal is endangered.

I agree with this. I've always hated the idea of hunting purely for the sport of it. Now, if they were hunting for the purpose of eating it, then I'd think it was fine.

I've never been deer hunting before, nor would I want to participate in it. However, I do love eating venison.

Oh, I forgot, I did go with my father once. I found it rather boring, though. I guess I didn't have the patience for it at that time.

I have went once but i just can't stand waiting around hours in the cold for a deer. Too much walking it's just not for me.

I went hunting once, or rather I accompanied someone else who was hunting. It was cold, and I don't like cold at all, lol, however, it was also very beautiful as there was just a bit of snow. We had to be very quite and very still which is not so easy to do, especially if you are not used to it. We did see a group of deer but they were so beautiful we left them unharmed. I don't like the taste of venison at all but others in the family do so when they do hunt, they do it for the food.

I read an article the other day about Hunting or Hunters becoming an endangered species. So many circumstances these days have forced people to stop hunting due to many issues, not the least of which is the expense attached to it as Thoul stated above, but also the fact that many areas that used to be "in the wild" have now become populated forcing the hunters, and the deer, to move elsewhere, if they can find anywhere else to go.

I am appalled at even the very thought of anyone killing anything, especially helpless animals. Hunting should be outlawed everywhere and the habit should become extinct. :grumpy:

Hunting for sport of any kind is bad. I don't see how anyone could stand to hurt the poor deer. :( Human expansion is already destroying all of their homes, isn't that bad enough?

I agree.

My first thought I've discovered the thread was:
Hunting is sick!

My second thought(after reading the first posts):
If it's not for sport, fun ... but it's for "a greater purpose then it's okay"
But what would be the greater purpose?


Finally:
I think it's worst to breed animals under unimaginable conditions like it's common/usual today.
That's giving birth to creatures/beeings and torturing them all their lifte time. And then call it 'human'!
The animal being hunted probably had a much better life.

And even "worser than worse" is that i still like eating meat!

I read somewhere that the word vegetarian is Indian and that it means "to stupid to hunt"

Why is pig meat called pork and not pig meat. (did you see the film Babe?)
(compare the IQ of pigs and the "mans best friend dog)
Why is cow meat called beef?
Whats Bambi's meat called?
