No one in WV should contribute a dime to WVU and the legislature should cut all their funding until the adminisration backs away from this chicken shit politically correct stance of not allowing the mountaineer to hunt with the school issued musket. What could be more mountaineer tradition than the mountaineer shooting a bear?
Who the Hell do they think they are. It has been a tradition for the mountaineer to go hunting with the school musket. Bunch of damn cowardly weasels.

What makes me really sick is to see photos in the paper of these 10-year old kids with the deer that they killed. What are parents thinking to expose their children to killing animals at such an early age. My god!

Maybe they could be teaching them the proper and safe way to harvest animals, handle firearms, respect conservation and the environment at an early age.. Most would become more responsible adults...
I get irritated when people down hunting in general such as liberal what's his face, when 99% of them shove Big Macs, and pork chops down their faces. Those animals are wholesale slaughtered by the millions.. No one blinks and eye over that.

What are parents thinking to expose their children to killing PEOPLE in gang areas of Chicago or Los Angeles?...That's a much bigger problem don't you think? My God!:)

Hunting teaches children a healthy respect for guns and for life. They understand that when you shoot something, it is dead. Most of these kids who go on these shooting rampages have never hunted and actually shot something that was living. It also teaches them about the environment, provides exercise and provides quality time with the parent.
I had quit hunting when my oldest son asked me to take him hunting when he was 10. We spent many hours since then in the woods together. The younger son cared less about hunting but went along many times just to spend time with us.
The youngest granddaughter will get her first pink bb gun for christmas.

My kiddo's started hunting and Fishing when they were 8, and i am Thankful for the deer and fish and other animal's they've brought home. One of my Kiddo's may be on a hunting show soon......I am so excited for him. All my Children have learned to respect nature and the understanding of what God has provided to us. They are responsible with the weapons they use , and will continue this .

There is no problem here. I think it's a good thing that these fathers take the time to teach their children about gun control and usage. If taught how to use guns at an early age also teaches respect. A lot of families would not have meat to eat of they did not hunt. Times are tough now days. Hunting is not just some sport that you do it is a way to feed your hungry family.

My son killed his first Buck at the age of 7 Yrs and 5 Mos, got it in Oct at our camp site on the farm In NC. Hopefully he will bag another over the Christmas Holidays. If you parents will teach you children how to enjoy the outdoors, to fish and hunt Etc; when they get older you will have less problems with your children. And by the way 'Lesson Learned' Our children today our never too young (under the proper supervision) to Lear how to "GUT fish and SLAUGHTER animals" for human consumption.
just wondering

What makes me sick is seeing young people "gone wild" during Spring-Break. Jumping off balconies into swimming pools & running around drunk & disorderly is totally irresponsible and shows a lack of up-bringing. We chose, when he was very young, to pay for our son's life-time hunting and fishing license that will last a lifetime and not one single wild-party time at the beach.

My son missed his first buck this season, he is 12. These kids need to get off the sofa and outside. I would like to think if the world turns upsidedown in the next several years, he could feed himself and his family. Raise a garden kill his meat. Kids need to learn that food does not come from Wal-mart or McDonalds. I will bet you most of those kids whose picture you were talking about don't stand around on a street corner tring to find drugs. When I was going to school about a hundred years ago, there were two groups of boys. The guys I hung around with went hunting or fishing every chance we could. When we wasn't we were planning our next trip, or of coure talking about girls. Then you had the other boys who drank and smoked pot. I would much rather have my son in the woods with me than doing God knows what out on the streets.

To me, it depends on the situation and the reasoning?

Is it being done out of a political correct movement? Or is it being done out of a block of using school property for personal use?

PC should die, but honestly if its the latter, I can sort of understand.

I would venture a bet that it is the former and not the latter. It has been a tradition for the Mountaineer to hunt with the musket.
Hunting brings millions of dollars into the WV economy every year. By being on that video, he just got the state of WV millions of dollars of free advertising.
I liked it because i thought, gee this guy really is a mountaineer, not just a school mascot. I had always wondered how many of these guys and at least one girl actually shot guns or knew anything about mountain ways.

How do you teach a kid that young that it's OK to kill a deer, or a bear, but it's not OK to drown a kitten or stone a dog. I can't believe it's a good thing for children to learn at an early age that it's OK to kill animals. Seems to me it would harden them in some way that would blight their life. Just my opinion.

BTW, I never had any problems with my son....that I knew about at the time...lol...and he's a model citizen now.

I have no problem believing that your son never had a good time at the beach....quite sure he was an apt pupil of his mama.

My son never smoked, never did drugs, made good grades in school, played football (dreamed of playing in the NFL), basketball, baseball and ran track. He went hunting one time when he was about 13...he kept begging to go hunting and finally my brother took him and he killed a squirrel. That was the end of wanting to hunt. Now if he had gone when he was about 7, 8, 9, or 10 he might have overcome those squeamish feelings of identifying with the animal but I've never regretted that he's not a killer of animals.

He loves to fish and goes to Key West every year for lobster season...guess they don't seem so much like pets.

Jumping off a balcony into a swimming pool is NOT having a good time - it's dangerous and stupid so I'm sure your son was an apt pupil of HIS MAMA. I wonder how much alcohol or pot it takes to give one the courage to risk such a stunt?

I doubt very much he had anything to drink. He never drank in highschool (and drugs weren't even an option) and this was right after he graduated. My brother broke his neck diving out of a tree into the river when he was 16 years old and I am quite sure he didn't have anything to drink. Sometimes kids do wild things just because they're kids. But I can understand why you wouldn't have any concept of that as I'm sure you never did a wild thing in your life.
