Hunting a tradition, and in some cases an action necessary for survival and used since the beginning of humankind, and in the animal kingdom. Hunting now used as a way for families and friends to bond in the beauty of nature while trying to reach a common goal, and feeding their family with amazing fresh meat, while getting the satisfaction of killing the game yourself. This activity is great way to come together bond and enjoy the beauty of nature, while recieving a fresh meal.

While the Idea of hunting may seem traditional. God has given us a brain. Although you and I both have our religions listed as pastafarianism. We both believe in a God. Whether this God is made out of Italian cuisine or not is irrelevant. The issue is that such a being has bestowed upon us a brain. And with this brain man has come up with many alternative solutions to the issue of nourishment. We have alternative methods many of which are getting close if not better in taste to the real deal. If we have these methods why not use it. God gives all creatures life using the (animus) which is the latin word for a heart/mind/soul. These animals are not unlike humans. They have a heart mind and soul. According to St. Thomas Aquinas HUmans are a "Rational animal" We should use our rationality to make the rational decisions to save other animals like us. It is a moral dilemma and we must climb down out of our ivory towers and respect animal life. They have souls minds and brains, and although life quite sadly thrives on death God has bestowed upon us a powerful gift... of knowledge. Using this gift can bring greatness to the world, and Not using it brings disrespect to the creator. We must respect the rights of all creatures... of earth land and Sea. To summarize my first contentional the answer becomes clear that animals deserve fair treatment and dignity and we must do this when possible if our survival is not at stake

I most definitely our glorious noodle God has giving these animals a life and has giving a wonderful world to us to live on ,and our God has given us this for our nourishment and to survive. I am not saying that any animal what so ever should be brutaly maimed or unnessesarily hurt in any way, but we should take advantage of the animals and what they offer like any other animal would naturally do in the wild. All animals should be treated with respect, and be killed in an ethical way, but should be eaten for its nutrients, whether be wild game or farmed livestock.
