Al-Qaeda commits suicide bombings to enforce their ethics and morals.

But primarily and most importantly, the guy that created and controls this Forum says so. You don't like it - you know what the alternative is...
Well put but your trying to converse with someone that has gone down this type of road before and never seems to comprehend what is explained.

Re: Your take on dealing with a wounded animal ?

Im with trebark. Most people let an animal bed to keep from bumping it and loosing the game. I fortunately have never had to do this but I totally understand why someone would. Im not going to get into an ethics discussion but Its the hunters decision and I think unless your in their shoes then its hard to give judgement on. If its late, not sure of the hit I understand. I have seen whitetail and elk that if hunters wouldnt have bumped them and given them some time would have recovered the animal instead of having a nightmare. This is a touchy subject though. whats too far to shoot at game, whats too large of gun etc etc etc. Just my two cents.
