Disgusting. I thought Arizona was disgusting with the amount of slaughter of wildlife that goes on but I see Minnesota is pretty disgusting as well. Why do people think they have the right to kill everything in sight? I'll never understand.

I don't understand the need for the hunt either. Sandhills are the oldest living bird species we have. They should be respected not shot down. What will happen to their young that will be migrating for the first time, and their parents are killed? What is to stop the hunters from shooting the Whooping Cranes that so often fly with the Sandhills? Look how much time and effort has been put forth to save that species by Operation Migration. This is heartbreaking to me.

I agree 100% with Gale and Joan. This outrage merely proves that hunters just can't seem to kill enough animals to satiate their bloodlust.No animal will ever be completely protected as long as hunting remains a thriving multi billion dollar industry, and as long as there are blood thirsty killers who spend several hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars just to get their sick thrills from maiming and killing wildlife. Hunters are sociopaths. The fact that hunting is not a necessity, but rather a "recreational pastime" truly validates what a sociopathic activity it is. Hunters are despicable outcasts of society. Anyone who spends so much money to go out and kill beautiful, defenseless, majestic animals, and gets excited when they take a life, IS nothing more than a sociopath. Hunting is a despicable multi billion dollar "industry" that profits from the maiming and killing of animals. Only sociopaths participate in such a horrific crime against animals and all of nature.

Ah yes, the ranting of a typical, cowardly sociopath. The only way you make yourself forget what an impotent coward you are is by killing animals. we get it, coward. Thank you for proving my point. You're not only a sociopath, but a coward to boot. Is it time for you to have another pansy fit and scream that you are going to kill even more animals? COWARD.

What about Pelicans? Those buggers come in early in the year and destroy lakes. Why cant we kill those, and cormorants? If we are going to open season on anything why cant we do the more nuisant birds? Not to say this is a bad passing, but lets open season on more....

<quoted text>"go eat a salad"?? Not only are you a coward, but a moron as well. Morons like you resort to claiming a "God" put animals here to be wantonly and brutally slaughtered by emasculated cowards like yourself. People "harvest" vegetables, you moron. Animals are not crops, they are sentient beings who are maimed and killed by brainwashed, callous douchebags like yourself. Why don't you go gnaw on another piece of corpse, after all, you are what you eat, and you are clearly a brain dead zombie.
Well if we are not supposed to eat animals, then why are they made out of meat?

It is disgusting. The conduct of the animal killers on this thread displays the type of people who derive such pleasure in killing animals.

Hunters make up less than 5% of our population, and the numbers have been on a steady decline for decades. The hunting "industry" is desperately trying to increase the number of animal killers and they will obviously do anything to do it. The animals don't matter, obviously. All that matters is the almighty dollar, and the hunting industry rakes in billions. Disturbingly, greed matters far more to the hunting business than the senseless suffering and deaths of animals.
Hunting should have been banned eons ago, but because of sociopaths like the few on this thread who will pay hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to kill animals, hunting still exists. It's time that we, the non hunters who make up 95% of our population, work on abolishing this despicable atrocity against animals and all of nature. It's time that no child is taught to destroy life, but to appreciate and respect other lives.

Anyone with good sense can see how mentally unstable hunters are. Every single thread in topix that portrays views which oppose hunting, is inevitably polluted by vile, ignorant animal killers who are incapable of accepting that most people are disgusted by what you creeps do to wildlife.
The first three posters are correct, and you all have done a fine job of displaying your cowardice and validating that hunters are indeed sociopaths.

"No spin" laughs about the animals he kills. Typical of a SOCIOPATH.

Low life's like you are even a disgrace to your own kind.

Aren't you the chia freak who came up with that moronic juvenile nonsense? Wow, you're still showing that to people? You completely lack any sense of dignity or intelligence whatsoever, and you clearly aren't even a shell of a man. Grow up.
