What ignorant comment bugs you the most?
1. Hunters have an unfair advantage over the animals they hunt.
Anyone making this comment has obviously never seriously hunted. Hunters are out in the environment most familiar to the animals they hunt. The animals have fair advantage over the hunter regardless of the weapon a hunter carries.
2. Hunting is cruel, inhumane and the murder of innocent animals.
This comment implies that hunters have malicious intent to cause harm to an animal. This is far from the truth. Hunters make every effort for a fast and efficient kill. There is no malice in hunting.
3. Hunting should be outlawed in every state.
This is simply a misguided way of thinking. Hunting is a wildlife management tool with many regulations in place that consider both hunter and wildlife. Dollars generated by hunting are used for conservation efforts in their state among other programs.
4. Hunters only kill to put a trophy on their wall.
In a society that is leaning towards a healthier way of living by buying organic items at the grocery store, hunting is the alternative. Hunting offers our tables truly free-range meat and a healthier diet than most.
5. Hunting is a juvenile way for men to beat on their chest and show off their masculinity.
There is not one component to hunting that is juvenile. Hunting is a serious business providing nearly $200 million in federal taxes for wildlife management, habitat conservation and hunter safety education.
