When people say they are against hunting, my thoughts are that when they quit eating beef, fish, eggs, chicken and get rid of all their leather goods including belts, shoes, coats and seats in their vehicles..then I might listen to them.

You can't win when you get into a discussion with an anti-hunter, you WILL NOT change their opinion just like someone WILL NOT change your opinion about the same subject.
this is true

If you want to feel violence and a real feeling of helplessness then just get married.

Failure's hard, but success is far more dangerous. If you're successful at the wrong thing the mix of praise, money and opportunity can lock you in forever.

Here in CT, we have a little problem called Lyme Disease. It is spreading slowly across the nation. Soon to be in a backyard near you!!. Nasty little disease, spread exclusively by Ixodes Scapularis, aka The Deer Tick. The nymphs feed on anything with red blood. But the adults feed exclusively on deer. They have done studies that show a direct link between the deer population and the deer tick population. Less, deer, less deer ticks, less sick people. They pose a direct threat to public health. Yet hunters are treated like criminals. I personally don't hunt. But the rest of you can shoot all of the deer you want. Give the meat to soup kitchens. Great protein source, low in fat!!

BQLC, yeah it is easy. One year I hunted everyday for 37 days in a row. I was hiking 100 miles a week for over 5 weeks before I saw an elk. I ended up with a calf elk and meat for the winter. I had to pack that calf elk out on my back for 5 miles. Sure it was a claf, but a calf elk is bigger than most any deer would be and it was the best elk meat I have ever had. I have hunted equally as hard on other years and ended the season having tag soup for dinner. Yep, it is as easy as buying a rifle and going out and killing something.

I don't hunt, but I don't have a problem with those that do--IF they use the meat. I don't think trophy hunting is right.

I don't have much use for sitting in a blind all day in cold weather.

What if they trophy hunt and use the meat? Is that OK?

The Alaska Fish & Game is proving that "Trophy" hunting can actually be BETTER for the animal population under some circumstances. A number of years ago they changed the moose regulations (in most areas, not all) to where you had to shoot either a spike/fork horn OR a moose with a rack that is 50 inches or has at least 3 brow tines on one side. In some areas they have upped it to 4 brow tines. The moose population is on the rise. I'm not sure how this works out, I guess when you shoot the spike/fork you're getting rid of the ones that are dumb enough to stick their head out. When you kill the larger ones I guess you could be taking out the ones with genes that are going bad. I'm not really sure...but it is working.
