Information for the Anti-hunter

The very thoughts of a true hunter at heart, Teddy Roosevelt paints such a perfect picture of an important part of hunting, loving and enjoying nature and the wildlife in it.

Hunters and anti-hunters should be able to live in peace and harmony, but sadly that is often not the case. Anti-hunting “extremists” go above and beyond the call of duty they deem as to belittle and bash those of us who choose to hunt. To condemn hunting and hunters as being immoral or unethical is simply absurd to the extreme. Sometimes it goes beyond even that. There are groups that do not approve of fishing, stating that even the practice of catch-and-release is an unacceptable torture for the fish.

Someone please give me a break!

    Comments from a former farm girl: Yes, killing animals is killing. We do that. We are built that way, either by God or nature, as you may believe. Deer and cattle eat plants, they are herbivores Wolves eat meat, cats eat meat, they are carnivores We eat meat AND plant material, we are omnivores just like bears and pigs. Those of you who grew up watching Grizzly Adams where “Gentle Ben” only ate honey and berries, are living in a false world. If you take away that protein source, you end up with weak bodies and smaller brains. Get a clue, this isn’t TV. In the real world, fish eat other fish, predators eat prey, and humans eat meat. There is actually a Native American argument for hunting instead of raising your meat. It considers the domesticated animal to be a “slave animal”. Anyone who ever raised a calf can understand that. You can’t have bear and mountain lion wandering through your backyard. If you get rid of them, something has to keep the prey population down. If you have ever seen sick and crowded deer in an area with no predators you understand why humans must thin the herds if we are going to be safe from those predators in our neighborhoods. If you don’t like hunting, don’t hunt. Leave the balance of life alone for the rest of us to take care of.
