What's so great about armed men killing defenseless animals for sport?

  • For sport? Not a damn thing.
    People should kill only to eat.

  • dinner!

    IMO if they don't eat it, or at least sell the meat, it's wrong.

  • Well for starters it reduces the population of that animal so your not driving down the highway at 65 mi per hr and one jumps out in front of your car and kills you. Other benefits are it keeps the herd healthy, keeps some from starving, keeps them out of crops ... there are a lot of arguable points.

  • and like the PP mentioned about the supermarket, at least wild game has a better chance than the penned up cow that gets bashed on the head with a hammer!

  • if it's just for the mere fact of it being a "sport"....I can't say I can agree with it.

    however, my husband is an avid hunter/fisher----but we keep all the meat and stuff. just to kill and leave it....not very moral.
    but it's not different than going and picking up beef or chicken from the supermarket....same concept.

  • Not a damn thing. Maybe a few hundred years ago when they needed food for their families. But now? Nothing good about it.I would rather not eat meat,personally. Fish and eggs are great protein.

  • Now let's see. First and foremost is the food aspect of it. My parents lived off of deer for a while when they were broke. If you go hunt in africa the tribes people eat whatever you kill and an elephant can feed a lot of people. Then we can move on to population control. Tags are given out for people to shoot deer based on how many there are in an area. Hunting to keep the population under control cost the government nothing while trying to sterilize animals is pretty expensive. then we can go on to the animal protection part of it. In africa animals that are hunted by big game hunters are better protected from poachers because they hold monitary value. Big game hunts can get very expensive and the more animals there are, the more there are to hunt. Hunter tend to also tip the people of the tribe because they cook and wash clothes and stuff. All in all...besides the fact that an animal has to die...hunting is a good thing.

  • My fiance and I love to hunt and it is how we get the bulk of our meat for the year. We both got a doe this past year and now have plenty of meat to at least last us till the summer. Think of this way op. Like the anon said in 1:39, if you eat beef, you are eating a cow. Is it less inhumane to eat a cow because it wasn't "hunted"? Of course not, cows are bred for the soul purpose of being butchered and sold. Deer (for example) at least have a good chance of living long and fullfilling lives out in the wild, instead of caged up like a cow would. Which is more inhumane now?

    Also, think of population control. If there were not hunters then there would be people hitting deer on the road all the time. If the population isn't controlled, it could also start diseases that could spread to other animals.
