Should hunting be illegal?
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.
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
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.
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.
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 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!
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.
