Hmm... interesting proposition. Control population growth by hunting of people. Lower funeral costs because barbecues are cheaper and creating jobs for people in the sauce and grill business. Oh and we could have Ted Nugent announce hunting season every year!

I like how you think, sir.

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

I'm sure some will disagree but I feel man has a right to hunt, especially overpopulated game. Hunting is in our blood, and as long as it isn't done simply as sport or isn't endangered then so be it.

Hunters respect that animal more by killing it in it's natural habitat as opposed to those (myself included) that simply purchase the already killed and neatly packaged product in our local supermarket. Not only that but it feeds their families and maybe neighbors if the animal is large enough and the community tight enough.

Most Natives use all parts of the animal so that none of it goes to waste. Most hunters that I have dealt with do the same. Is it all done for necessity? Of course not, I'm sure the adrenaline rush and primal instinct has a large part to do with it, but respect is given to the animal nonetheless.

I just wanted to add that I do not respect game hunting for the thrill of the kill only. To me that's a waste and not respecting the sentient beings.

If a hunter eats what he kills or uses it then I have no problem with that at all.

I'm not totally sure how I feel about the whole African thing as I've seen numerous documentaries showing that if people didn't pay to go and hunt there, many of the animals would be extinct now and the community would be a lot hungrier and poorer.

This Louis Theroux one shows a good amount from both sides:

Killing anything for entertainment is immoral.

Killing for food is not.

I have spoken.

I see no way people who eat meat can say hunting is immoral.

If you eat meat then do you have a problem with slaughter houses? That house animals cramped up in small places only to stand in line to be knocked silly. That is OK? But hunting is some how wrong?

Makes no sense to me really.

Dude lets not pretend hunting in africa has anything to do with population control of animals for a continent of starving people.
Bottom line is Hughes went to africa to kill animals because he likes killing animals. You guys in the states have laws that allow it etc so you think its fine, but the reality is people who hunt enjoy killing animals. Anyone who enjoys killing animals to me is a sick souless ****er. Im sorry but thats how I see killing animals. I might respect you as a tough dude and ex fighter but if you would tell me that you enjoy going out killing deer etc, a beautiful animal, I would tell you you are a sick heartless ****er.

I can only tolerate the killing of animals if they are somehow causing a problem to your farm, health or whatever. But again we are talking about africa here. Stick another 10mil animals there and you still won't have enough. Hughes went to kill for pleasure simple as that lets not try and dance around it.

Because there is a huge difference in actually doing the killing yourself and picking up a vacuum packed packet of bacon in the store. You are physically taking a life in the first. Out of site out of mind.

Not really...if anything it's even more hypocritical and gutless.


You cry about the "respect" of wild(or domesticated) beasts yet benefit from it.



It reminds me of those people who cry about sweatshops in China and yet buy Jordan's whenever they come out.



Seriously, people are really stupid.


In all of their self-righteousness, they somehow feel a need to justify everything they and other people do like anyone actually gives a ****.


"WELL IM GONNA EAT DIS HERE PIG! SO ITS OKAY TO SLICE IT'S THROAT HERPA"



Obviously that pig had no intrinsic value to you when you put it on your griddle without batting an eyelash.


Which is fair, because it's a pig. It has no value whatsoever other than the monetary value set by humans.

And with respect to that, shut the **** up about heartless ****ers and other such inanities.
