    I swear this happens at least once a year! At least this wasn't fatal.

    yep, my Dad lives out in th country, he dreads hunting season.

    Have another friend who used to live in Ky and he said EVERY yr they'd get liquored up and theyd have shooting accidents.

    Did you see the movie My Cousin Vinnie? I loved the scene with Marissa Tormei where shes telling Vinnie : How can you shoot the little dee-ah? lol

    Have a guy in my neighborhood who hunts, keeps a bunch of hunting dogs in a pen, they never get to leave it, only to hunt. I couldnt treat my dog like that, he lives in the house and part of MY family.

    I think hunting is so horrible too. If you had to do it to eat and survive I could understand but to do it just for fun is wrong.

    Hunter here! Sadistic? How about enjoying that gentleman being shot, that is sadistic. I was a Firefighter/E.M.T. for 10 years so being sadistic is not in this hunter's thoughts.

    Ahh..The "liquored up" fable. None of the people I hunt with drinks in the field, none of my friends do, I'll be honest, I don't know anybody that does. They do when they come in from the field & stop at the local watering hole. I have hunted for 40 years & have heard of just a few hunting accidents. None by liquor. Ask your state police, how many people killed by DUI & how many by "liquored up" hunters.

    We don't "hunt for fun". We do enjoy the hunt. Very big difference. Being outdoors & in the fields with your friends & fellow hunters is very enjoyable. Hunting with my two sons is one of my best times of the year. Being around the camp fire & telling stories (lies) is never better than when you are hunting. Note that I didn't mention "killing" anything yet. Yes, we do kill deer & other wild game. We just are not red eyed drooling while we are doing it. That's what most non-hunters think the "sport" of hunting is. You have never been so wrong.

    Let us chat about $$$$. Do you know how large an industry that caters to hunters & other sportsmen really is? $30 billion & 1,000,000 jobs. Let's play make believe & all hunting, shooting, etc. are now banned. How do you plan on helping the economy & workers recover from a huge hit like that? Hunters and fishermen fund nearly 75% of the annual income for all 50 state conservation agencies. Through license fees and excise taxes on arms and gear, sportsmen contribute $200 million per year for wildlife conservation. (U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service) That is going to make enjoying the outdoors by non-hunters basicly nonexistant. No state parks, no camping, no backpacking, cycling, rock climbing, etc. & so on.

    Ask the next farmer you see about the overpopulation of deer & what it means to them from the crop damage deer create. Ask any insurance agent what they think about hunting & the overpopulation of deer. Check with them on how bad the deer versus vehicle costs keep rising every year. Maybe if you're lucky & they will pay for a firearm. Basically, hunters are the best conservation tools that all state's Department of Natural Resources have. Hunters have been and continue to be among the foremost supporters of sound wildlife management and conservation practices in the United States.

    I'm a hunter & I'm proud to be one. Be nice & I'll give you the "JimmyBurger" recipe. The neighbors look forward to that coming the next BBQ season.

    There is so much more.

    I've seen the effects of an overpopulation of deer when they have no other natural predator. Not only do the deer suffer greatly but the entire ecosystem starts to collapse. I don't hunt but I understand the need for it. Sport hunting I don't like, though.

    I couldn't do it unless the corner grocery store stopped making meat look like it never had a face.

    A few seasons ago, I was driving home (I live in the woods) and a family of hunters were just entering the woods 200 or so yards down on the left side of the road - still hitching up their guns to their backs and settling in for the walk down the trail. As I glanced to my right, I saw a family of DEER just deep enough in the woods to see the hunters, but not be seen. The deer were WATCHING the hunters go the wrong direction!

    My daughter and I snickered and laughed the rest of the drive home, and never alerted the hunters. It was comical to see.

    I know hunters, and I prefer not to think about it - but I don't get angry at them for their sport. I hunt too - I just use a digital camera instead of a gun. :-)

    I saw a show once and a boy put another man's hand on a deer the other man had just shot. He could feel all of the physical and emotional pain of the deer. Now I am not one to say that "the dog" is attuned to his fellow animals, but this seems to be happening more often. Are the dogs getting smarter in the intention of what the "hunter" is going to do to his fellow animals, or are the humans just "not educated" enough to know that, you know, a dog may step on a gun left lying around.
