Hunting is reducing the animal species. This act is mostly done for the money. If it's for their living we understand, but there sure are a lot of other things a hunter could do. Many people also poach to improve their shooting targets. It is also said that hunting can even provide food, but as already said before, there are other ways.
Slaughtering animals for sport is ridiculous and insane. I know most people think of it as a fun hobby, but torturing defenseless animals is not my idea of fun. I know how to use a gun, I'm an excellent marksman, it's not difficult to sit around and aim and shoot, The animals don't have any defenses, it's not fair. We've encroached so much there's hardly any wildlife left, go to a grocery store and leave the few lucky animals who still have nature alone.
Why? That's a good question. Are you bored? Tired of shooting a target? It is a fact that almost every murderer started off hunting small game and abusing pets. Would you shoot your trusted pup in the face for fun or food? Animals are alive and they know they want to live. In my opinion, it's murder.
We can't harm things that never harm us i have a heart thats why i care only cruelest humas would think its fun to watch them die for sport what happened"we care" well clearly we don't care if we think its funny to watch these poor animals die for fun for sport this should be illegal
The people who say it's wrong dont even know about steaks, gyros and other meat products, so if some one ever says " it is wrong to hunt, it's cruel, and blah blah blah." they don't even know the half of it. But hunting does incurouge poaching, so don't just say "imma hunt a dear"
There is no need for it! People don't hunt now a days for necessity, they do it purely out of the thrill of stalking, capturing and killing a defensless animal. It's cruel and should be stopped! Anyone who says hunting helps the environment and controls overpopulation is wrong. There are other ways to control that such as capture, neuter and release. Hunting is just sick.
Human beings are no better than animals. In fact, we are animals. Should we start hunting each other and make a sport out of it? Humans are overpopulated, perhaps we should kill each other to solve that problem? Hunting animals is very wrong, and should be banned across the world.
Animals deserve a life like us and it's extremely unfair how these innocent animals are being shot and killed and put through all the pain when there is no need. There is already enough animals been killed in the supermarkets and even some of them die for no reason because the meat goes off and no one buys it. Also, don't say you're allowed to because they're overpopulated, well, we're an overpopulated species and you don't see people hunting us, do you!? There must be a stop to this as many poor species of animals may become extinct because of this. The world is already destroying nature and stopping it from ever coming back because humans that do this are just heartless are only care about money and themselves. It's just plain cruel. Put a stop to it now.
Animals are innocent animals that deserve to have a life like humans do. It's also hard to know when an animal is endangered for the following reasons. It could take a really long time for a certain animal to reproduce and if we have several people that think its overpopulated and they start hunting it then it could be endangered before you know it. Its especially hard to tell if an animal is endangered if they live in the ocean because no one lives there. Also some animals if they had a baby and then someone hunts the parent then the baby can grow up and start to kill people and other animals due to depression of not growing up with there family. Also we just need more animals because I think it's not fair for animals to have to worry about being hunted by people. Some animals may seem overpopulated but they might not be because they could only be able to live in that environment and no where else; they could rarely have babies,etc.
It hurts animals for no reason and it teaches kids to randomly kidd thing ... And its dumb okay . Ok its animal abuse and crulity and I don't approve at all how would u like if if they had human season and all the animals walked around shotting human ? Yeah u would not like it would u?
Hunting is not an activity to do for your free time. Or any time. Animals have rights, just like humans do. They deserve to live their lives, just how we deserve to. Is it that hard to run to a grocery store? Leave the animals alone. They don't mean harm.
They only attack when they feel threatened, and sure enough HUNTERS threaten them. So leave the poor animals alone.
Hunting is a good thing. People get there food by hunting and its safer than eating abused farmed animals. Hunting makes people bond and experience a new sport. It helps them know how life is outside of the city. Hunting helps people gain respect. It teaches self defense and lets you be more aware of your surroundings. There will be less predators and that will make the environment you or your kids are in safer. People don't realize that parks and other places keep game population high that way there will be a fair number left at the end of the season!
If hunting animals is what people choose to use as a source of food, let them. Killing for no reason is wrong, but considering that hunting is how many people of the past got to eat and that it is a lot more natural than processed meat, it should be a right.
Barring people from hunting is like stopping people from fishing. They are both sports and both can be used as a hobby. Hunting some species of animals like those that are at risk should definitely be illegal, but other than those that are not at risk of going extinct, hunting deer, birds, or rabbits should in no way be illegal
Hunting actually helps the environment. Man kind has been hunting for years and it is more important than ever now to continue. Hunting helps keep the deer population under control. If we did not hunt deer would be running crazy all over the country side. Some people still use hunting as a way to survive.
Its more than fair to shoot an animal yourself, than what they do in food factories (or whatever you want to call them). In factories they inject them with hundreds of enhancing chemicals and treat the animals inhumanely, where as if you shoot it yourself they are killed much quicker and the meat is healthier for you.
Compare it to factory farming where animals are detained in often cramped pens, often have beaks clipped, balls removed, and all kinds of horrors done to them. It is way more humane to get meat by hunting it. The only limitations should be to prevent a species from becoming endangered or extinct or against hunting significantly intelligent animals such as apes, elephants, whales, or dolphins.
Hunting has been a way of life since the beginning of time. Cave people hunted animals for food so they could survive, and people still hunt so they can survive as well. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with hunting and it for sure won't wipe out the species if the hunting is CONTROLLED. (i.e. poachers). If hunting were to become illegal the animal population would sky-rocket out of control, causing disease to the animals which will make them suffer and die anyways. Sadly those city slickers don't see that their food comes from agriculture. No hunting would mean no agriculture because of the over population of animals. This would mean no food.
Some think that hunting is just about killing animals. The truth is hunters care about wildlife more than most. Hunters manage their hunting properties and provide the finances to state and federal wildlife agencies through hunting license and permits. If it was not for hunters we would see wildlife become over populated and unhealthy in some areas. Hunting is not all about killing. It is getting out in the outdoors and just enjoying viewing wildlife. What has done more to harm wildlife in the past 100 years is development.
I understand where most people are coming from and I do agree that hunting endangered species should not be allowed but with animals like deer, rabbits, and ducks, I don't agree with them. Most people disagree with hunting because they have never hunted themselves and they don't know what it is actually like. I am not saying that all hunters are good people. Some hunters treat animals cruelly and have no respect for them and only hunt for the fame and money but not all hunters are like that. I think that hunting is in our nature. Some animals have to hunt too. For the people that are saying to buy meat at the grocery store, grocery stores aren't going to last forever. What if something happens and all the stores are shut down for months? How will you survive? I can guarantee that you won't be able to live off of plants and berries. If something like that ever happens, people who know how to hunt will know how to get food. Besides, I don't suggest trusting the grocery stores 100%. You don't know what they did to that animal or what animal it is. I think it's important to know how to get your own food because some day you might need that skill when you can't depend on stores as your food source.
I think that hunting should not be illigal because of the population of deer I really does not hurt anything that people are killing deer. Also it gives time for hunters o bond and have fun with there family and friends. Because I found out that over 50,000 deer get killed in Michigan in 1 year!!
People go hunting to bond with nature, to see the beauty of the outdoors in a different way. It's one thing to see an animal in a zoo, being in captivity changes animals. To see an animal in the wild is an amazing experience. Many people go with their family, i go with my dad and grandpa. It is a wonderful way to bond with others. It is so peaceful and relaxing and it also has thrills.
If you want to make hunting illegal, make farming illegal because they slaughter animals and clear forests. We're just keeping another overpopulation from happening and giving out good meat in the end. Animals will attack us; if you walk up to a pack of wolves, they will kill you. Grizzly bears will maul you, moose will trample you and Coyotes would take your little dog or even your newborn baby.
In the beginning of life, humans were hunters and gatherers. Why should the practice of hunting be discontinued today? If hunting was illegal, the population of animals would grow so large that they would run out of food. The species would become extinct do to lack of food. Hunting provides food for humans just as well as protecting animals from themselves. Don't let the animals starve and die. Hunting is on Earth for a reason.
Here's a clip from my essay i just did: Well in some places, like in Southern Maine, deer have overrun the countryside and have gathered up in the city and suburbs. The average amount of deer per square mile is 20 to 25, but in southern main there’s 100 per square mile. Most people don’t hunt around there and that’s what causes the over population of deer. If more people were to hunt we wouldn’t have this problem, and from studies on the deer their biologists are concerned because the deer have small skeletal bones and low fat reserves. They are also producing fewer young compared to healthy deer which isn’t natural.
