I am an avid fisherman and hunter. With that said,"that is one of the most unethical hunts I have ever seen" a disgrace to hunting.
They just about killed each other.The fist shot was takin to soon in my opinion,no way he had a good vital shot.That why they about got ate.

Another reason I don't hunt. I am a strong gun rights/gun guy, but hunting is stupid IMHO. If you are gonna hunt, hunt somthing dangerous. But after seeing that video i almost wish the lion had won........................the idiots.

sauls,

If hunting were totally banned today in 10 years there would be only scavenger species left.

Ethical hunting is more selective harvesting then anything else, a balanced ecosystem is necessary being that we humans are the top of the food chain in most places it is up to us to maintain that balance.

Fact not just opinion.

I wanted to be a game warden when I was younger.

Yeah I actually understand that. I don't want to get all you hunters mad. I just don't have the guts to blow away an animal that has done no wrong in my eyes, and I would rather see the animal live, than have me kill it.

I don't really get why vegetarians and such are always considered liberal. I was a vegetarian for a while, and I
for sure am no liberal.

I realize that PETA has ruined it for people who would rather
not eat animals etc. People think you have a disease or somthing if you eat all vegetables. My dad said it was as
bad as if I had said i was gay. That really mad me mad.

As you can guess, I am not a vegetarian anymore. There are a couple reasons that I am once again an omnivour.

1. Pressure

It was horrible, people making fun of you constantly. My family was the worst. And did I mention that my GF's family was one that hunted a lot?!

2. Health risks. I still believe that a minimal meat diet is best. I do not eat a lot of meat compared to the average indivdual. Vegetable based is defidently the way to go. Look at all the orientals--how long they live and how skinny they are.

3. My Bible. I was reading one night and found a verse that says somthing about in the last days there will be "false prophets" (somthing like that) that will forbid people to eat meat. Well if you read the Bible much, false prophet is not a name you want to hang around your neck. The Bible never says that eating meat is bad, and it forbids people to condem what other's eat. (mostly had to do with the temple sacrifices though)

4. I did not want to be associated with PETA. When I hear a PETA person I might agree with some of what they are saying but then I say pass the steak since they are the worlds biggest morons.

That was the equivalent of "shooting fish in a barrel". I see no reason to hunt a lion unless it has become a man eater of sorts. I believe in gun rights and all of the above where the right to bear arms is concerned but antics like this is what literally kills the reputation of the Hunter.

I won't even bother looking at the vid. or whatever. It sounds like a "shooting fish in the barrel" kinda deal from reading whats been posted.
Folks that do that crap is what most non hunters picture when you say, "I'm going hunting".
