  • Although I live in a state where hunting is very big, I could never see myself hunting an animal. But I have nothing against people hunting animals for food. However, trophy hunting is something I dislike...a lot.

  • I am personally, if you dont need it to survive then theres no reason to kill it....and I dont buy anyone needing it to survive since we all know where to find a grocery store. I have gone fishing before, and I have eaten the fish I killed, but I was younger and less informed then..

  • I grew up in a family of hunters, but most hunters have a large respect for nature and its creatures. We always eat everything that is killed. I do have a problem with those who kill an animal just to have it's head decorate their walls. And I could not personally shoot an animal. After having children I became way too tender-hearted for that. But the meat we get from my husband or dad hunting fills out freezer year round and saves hundreds of dollars a year on meat. And it's healthier. So, no I am not against respectful hunting.

  • Yes I am 100%. And that's saying a lot because I was born and raised in a very hunting oriented, red neck area.

  • Trophy hunting........big NO but hunting for food........thats ok. Would never do it....but for the men out there like my uncle and aunt...hunting for the food and just enough for you, and doing everything pretty much 100% natural, thats fine with me

  • Eh yes and no. I don't mind hunting as long as you use/eat most or all of it. It just seems like a waste to kill an animal just to stuff it and put it on display.. I DO NOT like how hunters literally lure the animal into a trap and then shoot them. True hunting, in my opinon, means tracking and following an animal, and then trying to shoot them. I hate the use of "callers" and food set out to lure them to you.

  • I LOVE to hunt!! We made deer sticks last season and our son LOVES them!! If we can't process the deer we got then we donate it. People don't understand that hunting keeps the populations of animals down.
