Ethics question

Part 1.Is it ethical to shoot a wild animal if it is up against a high fence and can't get aroud it?
Part 2. Is it ethical to drive sead animal into sead fence then shoot it?
Part 3. IF the above is done is that sport or just plain slaughter?
A Courious mind wants to know.

Re: Ethics question

It appears that you have something in mind. You didn't say what catagory of wild animal, legal big game, predator control, etc. The motivation might be slaughter for the table, or it may be misguided sport, and it may be a difference of opinion, or you don't really understand what is going on.

For example. The moral code of only shooting what you intend to eat is a personal decision. I hardly eat any wild game, myself, but that doesn't keep me from harvesting the meat and the trophy, and donating what I don't want.

I think there is room for more than one code of ethics, and I wouldn't want someone else to dictate terms to me, as long as it's legal.

This is where the Anti's hope to divide and conquer, and they have some success in pitting bow hunters against rifle hunters, hound hunters against bear baiters, ducks on a pond, tearing up hogs with a pack of curs, and so forth and so on. Some people don't understand the sport in potting a treed lion.

I'd suggest that we resist fractionalizing our sport into different camps. Again, I can't guess what your questions are leading at, but it sounds like you have a strong opinion, as well as a curious mind.

Good hunting. LB

I'm NOT an ANTI. I love to hunt. I'm part Native American, so you could say it is in my blood. I'm on a road to wisdom and just asking directions is all.

Re: Ethics question

I just now read this thread. Hate to throw a wet blanket on the topic but the rules of LRH.com are to not discuss ethics. It's not that they aren't important nor that we aren't all ethical. It's just that when I formed this site I found that there were many forums where ethics are discussed (usually with rancor) and none where Long Range Hunting was discussed productively and without controversy.

So no ethics discussions here, please.

Topic closed.
