I hunt deer, duck, and pheasant regularly, but I have no interest in killing animals like this for kicks. Everything I kill, I eat. Not sure where the puts me on the Matt Hughes dickhead scale...

Matt Hughes is an ass. We all knew that already... can we move on?

Go read an article about the Westboro Baptist Church and realize that just meeting your criteria doesn't make a life precious.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Probably the single largest reason is population control. If hunters didn't hunt and kill things on a regular basis, you'd have wild animals everywhere, do you know how many car accidents you'd have from people hitting animals? How many animals going into your neighborhoods eating your dogs and cats, or even you? The reason you don't have animals doing these things much at all is because of hunting, without it our cities/civilizations would be riddled with wild animals.

The hunters that you can't comprehend are the reason why you don't have a bobcat killing your dog during the night. Yes, they enjoy the hunt and it's for sport (normally), but it's an important part of our society and it keeps a balance so that we have homes without having to check for wild predators every time we want to go shopping.

Obviously there are other reasons people enjoy it/find it useful, but that's the largest one that impacts our day to day lives, and it is an important one.

It's not cruelty.


They aren't waterboarding the beasts...they are shooting them dead.

Animal lives have no relevancy...if they run into a dude with a rifle it's just their time to go....much like if a tree fell on them, or they get eaten by a bear or something.

Most hunters nowadays do it for fun and as a hobby. They don't actually need the meat to survive like hunting use to be.

Maybe deal with people having 3, 4, 5+ kids, that's where the problem is these days, and the need for population control on animals. Apply the same population control to the women pumping out kid after kid and giving a reason to destroy this place.

In America at least...the growth rate isn't anything that's remotely out of control.

It's pretty stable.

Not yet. Just wait until it turns into China, and it's far to late. Suburbs are already pushing into the forests here, when 10 years ago they were pristine.

Except it won't...because the growth rate is stable...and has been for the last 100 years.


Year by year, the rate isn't even positive all the time. In 2009 we had a growth rate of negative 8...

China in the last 5 years hasn't dropped below 6, and is at an average of around 10.


The US's current rate is 2 and it's not trending upward.



The reason the suburbs are pushing out is because the whites continue to move away from the city to get away from all the stinkin' minorities....I mean...because they get tired of city life.....that white flight thing stopped like 20 years ago...according to history. America isn't even like that anymore.
