    Exactly!

    Vegetables are just a garnish, for MEAT.

    Vegetables only provide some additional vitamins and stuff to give us more energy to eat more meat!

    I'd like to try hunting some time. Never have. I have no qualms against shooting animals. I'll eat what I shoot.

    Most stupid poll Ive ever seen on MMO. There is no other option but to vote that you actually like hunting for sport, with another random option to vote for PETA.


    No, never tried it and I also do not like it. I see no joy in killing other animals for fun. When I go fishing I release all fish that are too small to be eaten, and the others are... well.. eaten.

    But that's far away from big game hunting.

    I think call hunting a sport is a joke. Killing animals for fun is not a hobby. Maybe it was in the 18th century but it should not be one in 2012.
    So lets see... hoofing it up and down mountain sides for several days, stalking your prey for hours on end, then carrying your kill out several miles... yeah, ill say thats athletic and sporting... you call football a sport, why not hunting??? It takes more to stalk and take down an animal than it does to catch a ball and run a couple of yards.

    So its okay to kill some animals, but not others... save the cute little otter, kill the ugly cow mentality.

    I would love to try it, but "The Most Dangerous Game" style...I won't eat the meat.



    In all honesty hunting has never interested me, I like fishing though.

    Does fishing counts?

    Just kidding, i don't really care so where's my button in this poll?

    I also noticed there's no option for hunting humans in the poll.

    Or is it because the OP is a sissy and only hunts animals?

    Fish =! big game animals. Why else are there so many "vegetarians" that only refuse to eat red meat, but like eating fish?

    Also, you didnt just compare fish to, lets say, deer.. did you??

    Might just as well say killing animals is inhumane because we do not kill other human beings. We are just animals after all.

    So what do you call the people that sit around have a couple of beers, wait for that deer to come around then "bam". Load the deer into the back of the truck and take it to the taxidermists, 'cos everyone needs to see how good a hunter you are!

    Way to make a strawman there.

    Try and read what you're quoting.

    So because a few people do that, everyone does it right?

    And in actuality.... i have NEVER seen anyone hunt like that... and ive been hunting for the better part of 20 years.


    Edit: And on the drinking part.... yeah, thats more the fishing crowd.

    Yeah, totally. Which is why I made the distinction between the people that actually hunt their prey and the majority of "hunters" we see (the ones I described).

    Note:

    I have no problem with hunting for food, however you do it as long as you don't torture the prey. I have a problem with people killing purely for fun.

    Why is there no option for "No, I find it abhorrent"

    Biased poll, I'm not voting. I have little to no respect for people who kill for fun.

    So every hunter hikes up and down a mountain to hunt? Way to bullshit the truth to support your bullshit facts. When a 60 year old fat redneck can sit in a blind with a high powered rifle at known animal crossings, bait stations etc and kill an animal I don't consider that as "taking more" than a trained, in shape athlete taking a beating on a field.

    Lets see you do it without all the fancy gear, camo and weapons. 99% of the so called hunters wouldn't last five minutes without their scoped rifle and bottle of deer piss.

    Fact: Prehistoric man ate far less meat than we do today. Want meat? Go to a supermarket and buy some that's already been slaughtered. Hunting for food is obsolete in this society. Enough animals suffer in some pretty poor conditions so you can have access to fresh meat.

    And no - I'm not a veg head.

    just look at the number of responses in the thread, not even the views. then look at the low number of votes (13 at this posting: #33)

    i'm not saying your poll is slanted, just that there arent very clear choices one way or the other.

    that being said, this year i did a little hunting for the first time in decades. i had a problem with squirrels getting into my attic.
    i cant tell you how happy i am to be able to wake up on a cold morning to the sound of my alarm clock, instead of sitting up all night with a squirrel scratching around INSIDE the walls...

    and no, i did not eat what i killed. but my cats did

    I apologize if you took my post seriously. But don't use it as some PETA diatribe platform. I know where my meat comes from.

    Prehistoric Man isn't Modern Man either. Unless you think we have an identical palate, digestive system, and mandibles as early homonids.

    Where's the "Yes, and I really didn't care for it" or something like that? I'm from Michigan, hunting is HUUUUGE out here. I have been, I like venison, I don't really care for hunting or fishing. I don't detest it, I just can think of things I would rather be doing during hunting season.

    As someone who hasn't eat any meat in about 7 years, it is indeed possible not to eat it.

    Ive been hunting for almost 25 years. . . Dove, Duck, Goose, Boar, and Deer.

    There is nothing wrong with hunting. There is nothing better tasting than Dove that feed on Maize. OR Ever tried fresh mallard, wrapped in maple bacon, stuffed with veggies?

    No, murdering animals isn't something I would enjoy.
    Definitely not.
