  • Mmmmm deer meat cooked up and put in a stew.

  • It depends on the animal and type of hunting. If it is hunting endangered species, than no. If it is poaching, no. If it is hunting fairly using a quick, clean method of harvesting an animal, then yes.

  • Only for endangered species though, Melissa Bachman is my hero!!

  • There are many reasons hunting is beneficial.

  • I hunt. It's very beneficial.

  • I love it. I often sell what I'm able to catch and skin. Meat I keep for myself.

  • Only in Moderation

  • Controlled hunting is crucial to population regulation.

  • Hunting has been the way of survival ever since human existence. Without hunting we would not be here. Not just because we don't have any meat, but because we wouldn't have any vegtables either. Why wouldn't we have any vegtables? Because the world would be over populated with deers, ducks, coyotes, and etc. amounts of animals. Just think about that.

  • Only as a way of population control and for food purposes. As a sport, NO.

  • As long as you're doing it legally, eat what you kill, and use humane hunting methods (no traps that torture animals before they die) I think hunting is okay.

  • It's valid to keep the ecosystem in check.

  • Actually, I'm all for hunting. Gather a bunch of trophy collectors, take away their rifles, and let them loose on foot in the African savannah. Let the hunt begin!

  • I do not believe in hunting for sport.

  • I don't believe in hunting for sport, I believe it's only to hunt when it is necessary to do so e.g. hunting for sustenance, some culls...

  • As a sport and/or for pleasure, hell no you sicko. For food or clothing, of course.

  • I believe in hunting for the sake of food or clothing, but not for sport. That disgusts me.

  • It's not as bad if you're actually going to eat the meat, but hunting is still wrong. I believe in animal rights and think that they have just as much right to live as you do.

So didlysquat you value an animal higher than a human ?

I'm pretty undecided. Hunting provides food, but if overdone, it can destroy a lot. I would never personally do it, I'm not the type, but I'm not against those who like it.

Hunting ( currently ) is regulated so populations do not get into critical levels ( they don't do it well they put lines right in the middle if the populations creating influxes and deficates in the zones . They could do it better in the making if zones ).

Sfaulkner - What about just hunting for fun!

We don't sell the skin. But we do keep the meat in fact I'm eating some right now .
Sfaulkner says2014-07-26T19:39:31.4244209-05:00
Emileej999, I don't trust your argument because you said "deers".
Formerland1 says2014-07-26T19:46:19.0105296-05:00
So what , I'm sure you've made spelling mistakes before .
Sfaulkner says2014-07-26T19:49:42.6724461-05:00
I was not serious.

I feel like posting my above comment here as well. "Only as a way of population control and for food purposes. As a sport, NO."

@Formerland1 : Technically, humans are just another animal, but in answer to your question - in many cases, yes.
diddleysquat says2014-07-26T22:44:50.0673075-05:00
The animal kingdom can seem incredibly brutal, but it's rare to see any species besides our own that kills for enjoyment. And I wonder just how many of those in western civilization who claim they are only hunting for food or clothing really need to? I buy my clothes at Rivers and my meat at the supermarket. I suspect most people who enjoy blasting the hell out of furry little critters could afford to do the same. Maybe it's time as a species we rose above it.
