Wow!!

All this because I mentioned a little hunting trip? Sorry, I know to avoid this in the future. But to add fuel to the fire for a little fun, what point does a boat have if it is not to harvest fish, possibly find food, and go to remote places? I realize we all have fun boating, but burining a finite natural recource for pure pleasure, this sounds about as bad as killing an endangered whale.

Jimmy

P.S. Please let it be known that I tend to be a smartass yank quite often, so take me with a litte humor.

True, but you were the one who opened the debate by bragging about killing bears for sport. Don’t think people are so naïve as to believe it’s for the nutritional value of Bear meat, or is that how you justify your killing.

Why would I give a damn whether we meet up or not? I’d certainly say it to your face.

Words mean things whether they are spoken in person or posted on the internet.
So now you associate a persons choice of music to be on the same level as killing for fun.


Bowhunting is, as the scientific evidence overwhelming demonstrates (Benke (1989) and many others studies), an extremely cruel form of hunting. "For humane advocates (and many hunters), bowhunting is set apart from other forms of sport hunting chiefly by its appalling high wounding rate - greater than 50%. In other words, it has been conclusively documented that for every animal hit by a broadhead arrow and retrieved by a hunter, at least one is hit and not retrieved, usually to die after prolonged agony from septic infection, peritonitis, blood loss, or other complications. The broadhead arrow is intended to kill primarily by circulatory haemorrhage. It is extremely difficult to shoot an arrow into a vital organ in a large ungulate such as a deer, and thus, a 'clean kill' is nearly impossible in bowhunting."

True..Most of us exhibit some form of hypocrisy or another.. but perhaps, when we’ve burned ourselves out as a race, any other of the Earth’s creatures that we haven’t slaughtered in the name of fun, food or “scientific research” will breathe a collective sigh of relief…..

Yes, hypocrisy runs rampant. Without it, would life be any fun.

Also, the other earth creatures wont sigh until the acid rain stops, the spent fossil fuels quit choking them, the raw hydrocarbons in the ocean quit killing their baby's, and their food sources quit poisioning them, until then we all shall feel the responsibility of the slow death of the mother that so kindly rears us.

HUMOR, can be spelled both ways, look it up.. However, Little does have an L in it to correct myself.

Bragging? Expressing that one engages in a particular interest is not bragging. Yes their is a recreational aspect to bowhunting. Being in the the woods observing large wildlife at very close ranges (20 yards and less) is exciting, and contributes to the preservation of our wildgame. The reason why North America has such an abundance of wild animals is because of legalized hunting. Without regulated hunting much of the large wildlife here would have been extirpated years ago as has happened in most of Europe where the antihunting culture is chic.l

I doubt very much you would. But this much I would tell to your face - you are a sociopath - pure and simple. Nonetheless, I do not wish you be killed violently as you do me. I wish you well and that you get help because you are a very sick person.

Performing (I sing) and or listening to music is a recreational pursuit I enjoy. As is Bowhunting. The killing involved in bowhunting is a very small (yet important) of the whole process of bowhunting successfully. The fact that you post the quote below and don't see the BS in it shows your vast knowledge and experience about big game hunting (shooting bunnies with a rifle was it?)

You don't reference the above quote, but from the rhetoric, it is cut and pasted from some animal rights website since it is wildly inaccurate. The most intensive rigorous scientific study on bowhunting wounding rates (Kruger, 1995) show that the rate of unrecovered deer from bowhunting to be at most 13%. Of that 13% the majority would most likely fully recover (which would not be the case with gun hunting) because of the razor sharp cut that a broadhead makes. In Manitoba, more deer are killed and wounded by vehicular colisions than by hunting (bow and gun combined). Nonetheless hunting helps reduce the number of vehicle wildlife accidents significantly. The Bowhunters Wildlife Management Association of New Hampshire expresses the facts well when they state;


* Bowhunting is a low profile method of managing deer herd numbers.
The average shot is less than 20 yards or 60 feet.

* A safe and effective way to hunt in heavily populated area's close to houses, farms and roads.

* Bows and bowhunters are quiet and unobtrusive; not disturbing inhabitants of the area.

* Bows in use today are extremely effective and will shoot a razor sharp broadhead tipped arrow completely through a deer causing massive and immediate hemorrhaging. The resulting blood loss causes dulling of thesenses and death is painless and swift.

* If a deer is wounded it immediately secrets hormones (endorphins) from the brain which dull pain and promote rapid healing. These same endorphins allow an injured deer to recover quickly from the clean cutting wound of a broadhead.

* A scientific study "Aspects of wounding of White Tailed Deer by Bowhunters" written by Wendy J. Krueger in 1995 revealed that less than 13% of bow shot deer are not recovered (many of these deer survive their wounds).

* Bowhunting is a popular and challenging method of hunting with the emphasis on hunting. Bowhunting is recognized by the F&W departments throughout the United States as a sound game management tool.

Jeebus!!!

Calm down oh mighty hunter, by the time they make it across the pond and this far north/northwest they'll have forgotten about killing us, and they'll be happy to see a fellow ribber waiting to take em for a ride.. Live life and smile, have a drink for your enemies, have one for your friends, and have one for me, for we are all assholes, but we all have a similar interest: Either finding a cove to sleep it off, or finding a sober driver.

Down here we take it easy on the wildlife and hunt each other with machetes on Saturday night. The rum deadens the pain!
