True but if you've ever watched "when animals attack" on the Discovery Channel you might get the sense that the animals know very well their in the game and also that they have the upper hand or should I say paw haha but yes some hunters should be hunted lol =)

Hunting isn't a sport. It is a privilege. And as such there are rules to be followed or you will have that privilege revoked. It is also an act of conservation. Man has hunted since the beginning of time and without hunting the natural balance of humans and animals would be tipped in the wrong direction.

And if it makes anyone feel any better, I have never shot an animal that had babies with it. Except for one wild hog, but they are pests.

Funny how some people do not understand the def. of conservation or the science behind it. Its to bad we dont have real conservationist like Teddy Roosevelt (king of the lever action), now that was a real president.

I get this argument every now and then. But I agree that hunting is NOT a sport, it's about acqusition. We have targets to acquire, objectives to achieve, and a freezer to fill!

Thanks Cameron for standing up for our hunting rights and explaining them to the other people.

I think they watch to much tv if they believe that offspring 'feel bad' when one of their parents die like a human being does.
I wonder if they believe that Francis is really a talking mule????

Re: Interesting conversation i just had about hunting on facebook

Every year we lose huntable territory to the likes of the walk shorts and knee socks folks. Those of you who have been denied access to so-called wilderness areas know what I mean. BLM says on its posters,"Land of Many Uses" but in reality its land of little or no use. The worst part of all of this is that we could all lose our hunting rights by way of a silly United Nations edict (Small Arms Treaty) that the party in power just happens to agree with. OK I'm off the soapbox...

Sounds like the people around here that have it in their mind, that only pit bulls attack and kill people. I have seen a whole bunch in the news attacked and killed by a lot of other breeds. It's the pits that have a bad name, because of how they are raised by idiots to fight. I owned a pit and raised it normal and it was just like any other dog. Just saying, I hear ya.
