    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.

    I beg to differ we keep animal populations under control.

    If some one walked up and shot your parents while u were walking through the mall and left u deffensless u might think diffrent about population controll after all if anything on this beautiful earth needed Population control it would be some of the 7 Billion humans lol joking of course but u get the point. Life is about perspective look at the big picture.

    Actually, our hunting seasons are intentionally timed and regulated to prevent this very thing from occurring. Animals are not hunted during times when they may be pregnant unless it is with the intention of stunting population growth such ...

    Ok still having ur dad shot how the hell would that be in any way positive? I get it if ur hunting to feed urself in the event that u need to do so to survive but I agree with Spencer in that hunting shouldn't be a recreational activity these animals have every right to be here and co exist.

    Not sure i remember anything from high school about an animals bill of rights or where they were endowed with life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Hunting is a matter of ethics, and peoples ethics differ. A great thing about this co...

    Agreed to disagree, a debate would imply that there's an equal amount of strength between opponents however my domination is obvious but indeed we shall keep this civil haha

    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????

    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.
