I would suggest that the majority of folks with graduate or doctoral degrees don't find joy in killing animals.

I hunt to eat good "organic" meat (depending how close farmland is) and have been considering bow hunting, but now I think I might stick to a rifle unless hard times hit. Sitting and waiting 40 minutes for a large mammal to die from a good shot just seems excessive and unnecessary compared to a good rifle shot. I love practicing archery, but any living creature would certainly appreciate the quicker death.
I agree, I am an avid hunter that also likes the outdoors and good venison. I realize populations must be controlled, but should be done ethically. I try to practice precise RIFLE shooting as often as possible to ensure instant kills. Anything less is unacceptable and therefore unethical.

Great! Ethical solution, & donate meat to the needy.

Put a lot of thought in to that comment did ya?

Somewhere around 5-6% of the population hunts. Why would you think the numbers for folks with graduate or doctoral degrees would be different?

On a personal note, most of the dr's in my family hunt or hunted. I'm talking about several of them.

Do you believe hunting is about finding joy in killing?

hey i think that hunting is a great sport and i just got into it, i am 15 and shot a 17 point non typical white tail out here in wy. he didnt even run, just took the impact of the arrow and bedded down right there where he died.
A great sport? What is so sporting about it? Only sick losers enjoy killing living beings.

It would appear to be an enjoyable activity to most.

So some of your family are doctors and hunt. And....? Not the healer types I'd ever want to lay a hand on me.

BTW about 5 per cent of the population are psychopaths, ie without the capacity for empathy, so that makes sense.

Bow hunting is cruel -55% of deer shot by bow hunters are never recovered. Sharp shooting is just as cruel, and totally negates the concept of 'fair chase'. And hunting does not lower populations, if it did then the deer populations would have been controlled over 20 years ago! By only shooting bucks, you are ensuring that DOES will make up for the lost bucks, and increase the herds, not reduce them. If hunters really cared for and respected the animals they hunted, they would advocate non lethal ways of thinning the population, not kill the natural predators off, and purposely manipulate the herds so that hunters can have enough living targets to shoot.
I agree, CWD and Big Rigs on the highway are much more humane ways of culling a herd. 55% never recovered? How would you enough know that? I've been hunting for 20 years, and not once have I not recovered an animal or even heard of animal not being recovered. By the way, who do you think pays for 90% of the conservation and management efforts? Those billions of dollars don't just magically appear in the states coffers. It would be one thing if anti hunters could put forth an informed argument, maybe there could be a discussion. Throwing out bogus numbers from a bogus study is never going to win you the argument.
