I think the logic of your argument is out of context on this thread though. You dont really know the reasons for the OP's reason to hunt, so putting in a statement about your own dissafection with the morals of killing game is not really relevant.
The notion of people killing game for fun is .. for the most part ill informed , and rarely is it connected, with the business of hunting for a purpose ,.. now read that again .. 'for a purpose' ... sure there are idiots who like to get dogs to fight and kill each other, cocks, or other animals or so called persuits such as badger baiting, and for that I am in complete agreement with you
, and that is not acceptable..and there is no place for those activities . However, that is a world away from taking an animal, for your own needs, in the context of this thread,... there is a huge difference, so perhaps you want to get a better understanding for those that might get offended by such a statement as you made, from different parts of the world, who wont see things the way you do, and for whom a hunt is normality
I think you will find what the OP and my own point was, (since you quoted my text although on exactly what grounds your reply was in rebuttle to, I'm not sure) and part of the notion of the thread is, that for those who hunt, killing is actually a minor part, in what requires immense skill to achieve, and why you, and DD have stated, 'you are quite happy to get it from a tin', but you wont do it yourself.. I dont really understand ..Do you hope some mindless automaton will keep feeding you ? is that it ? because if they don't .. what will you do then ?
Then If you morally take that view ,.. you shouldnt be eating meat in the first place if you think about it ... dont post a comment saying its not ok but it is, when it suits me !!
