Hunting

Is it Moral? Is It acceptable? Should it be legal?

as a spin off from the matt hughes hunting thread I thought i'd fire this one up for you guys.

Go ahead, debate this to your hearts content but pleas keep it civil.

In response to the poster in the other thread who claimed a real man would have killed the animal with his bare hands, Think about that for a min.
I have done it with a knife only, with the help of a dog and I will never do it that way again if I have choice, that is the most inhumane way to take an animal there is, A well placed shot from a gun is much better..

Another angle on Matt,
Matt Hughes has done more to feed starving children and boost the economy in Africa than probably 98% of the judgmental people on MMA websites..

I personally have not hunted since i was younger but i am no way against it in the least if it is done right,

Hunting is a form of population control

that packaged meat you buy, those animals live and die a very way worse death then any shot from a gun could ever do

done in the right mindset hunting can be a very peaceful and spiritual activity

for me at least killing and getting the food was the least fun of the whole activity of hunting, i enjoyed many days of not getting anything just sitting and walking in the woods.

same goes for fishing. which i do more then hunt

with that being said hunting can also be the most gruesome inhuman thing we as humans can do. for exaple hunting and killing a animal for ivory. ie kill them slice of horn and leave the bloody body their to rot sometimes still alive. hunting whales for money is another example

as for the matt hughs thread, him trophy hunting in theroy i am against but even he is against trophy hunting for mearly the sake of the trophy as he gave the meat to people that needed it and did not just leave it there to waste

In conclusion I am for hunting if it is in the right context and mindset.

A very well written post sir. I agree on all accounts.

TurkishArmCanoe has a little shameless behaviour in the past
If it's for food or to kill introduced/pest species and they're killed quickly then i'm cool with it.

I went kangaroo shooting once and i couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger, didn't trust myself to do a quick clean kill shot cause i'm a newb, shot some rabbits though, fun as ****
