Nice troll!
Now of course, you'll hear tales of overpopulation and good samaritan food contributing cammo wearers.
I of course love meat. I hunt for mine at Kroger. No Cammo, guns or morons involved.

Enjoy your steak tonight, at least my venison had a real life in the woods provided by sportsman. Your steak, leather belt and shoes never had a life, sorta like yourself. You obviosly never spent time with your Dad in the outdoors, or you would understand a sportsmans love for the land and its animals.

I talked to God. He said, "Deer are just big vermin infested, disease bearing rats with horns. Kill 'em!" end quote.

Too bad he can't use his intelligence when it comes to politics.
I will resist the temptation to re-examine my position based on the fact that you seem to agree with me on this particular point.

Because gawdamitey knows that if you are right about anything it's an accident of cosmic proportions.

Ooh, ooh, my favorite "let's save all the poor creatures" story. Nineteen sixties. Bunnyhuggers and Hollywood were horrified to hear of deer and elk starving in record snowfall in the Rockies. So they raised money to helicopter food drops to the herds. It turns out that straw was cheaper than browse hay, so they bought straw, dumped it, and the animals died from impaction! If you want to help nature, you actually have to know something about it or ask people who do. All these people FEEL and EMOTE and KNOW without having a clue. Survival of the fittest. If the average hunter can shoot a deer, it probably wouldn't have survived in a period when there were more natural predators around. The huge herds you see are NOT natural.

Hunting has taken on a new meaning through the years. Hunting used to be a means to obtain food. It was a way of life and needed for survival. Most avid hunters now days use hunting as a sport. They have the dead animals displayed on their walls. They use them as trophies, not for food. I feel hunting for sport is cruel.
How do you know this? EVERY hunter I know and their families love the taste of deer meat, reduce their food budgets and eat very healthy and lean meat, free of antibiotics and steriods; that doesn't cost $9 a lb.
I have venison and squirrel in my freezer at this very instant, and can't wait for our share, harvested from my husband's grandparent's property!
Even the sports hunters, who by and large represent a small number of hunters, donate the meat to charities and homeless shelters.

Well I guess EVERY hunter you know is hunting for food and not for sport. I happen to know several people that hunt for sport only. They don't even eat the meat. Your post is so ignorant it makes me laugh. Apparently you haven't been keeping yourself current with the news. Oceans are over-fished and it's having a terrible effect on the ecosystem. According to your logic, global warming must be a myth, and there is no difference between poaching and hunting. Isn't that just fabulous?! Sport hunters go out and kill as many animals as possible, but it's justified because they donate the meat! Lol!!

Sounds like your against sport fishermen also. I guess your tuna
comes from a can, so you don't take from the ocean.

Read this slowly, you may be able to retain more information. I did not say I was against hunting or fishing. I stated that I was against hunting purely for sport. I also stated the oceans were over-fished. I never insinuated all hunting or fishing was bad. Stop making assumptions.

As a matter of fact, every hunter I know does it for the meat. We have a community wide bbq 2 times a year and the deer that are harvested on 4 farms are consumed on those farms as well. Sorry you can't understand that. Sport hunting is a totally different thing than hunting for food. Apples and Oranges. You can't compare the two. And dragging in issues like global warming just makes you look a bit hysterical because you are losing your argument.

I'm losing the argument because I am opposed to sport hunting? Really? I did compare the two. It's along the same subject line, thanks. Apparently, we are filled with a thread of people who can't read posts in their entirety. I made a relation between their logic and mine. I'm sorry you can't understand that. That's great for you if you get together and eat the meat from the animals you've hunted. I stated (and this is the last time I am going to type this) that I KNOW people who hunt animals for sport. I don't agree. If you are going to eat it, more power to you. I don't wish to hunt, therefor I do not do it. I have not said one bad thing about any person whom hunts for the meat. Your insults and assumptions are getting tired now. I have written the same thing several times now. Reading comprehension would come in to play here.

I was talking to my next door neighbor,who doesn't hunt,but collects guns,and is thinking about hunting with his friends.He told me his friends don't eat the deer they shoot,they give it away,and he takes what they give him.I don't see a problem with that.If they were leaving them to rot in the woods,I would have a problem with it,but yes,there are people who hunt because they want to hunt,and prefer the supermarket meat to wild game.

I don't understand how you can be against hunters that eat what they shoot. Can you explain?

Curiousity. Your POV is identical to the transplanted Califronians who move to other states then want to change it to what they left. A couple of folks I chat with from Colorado have made the same observation about them.
We suffer from californication in Oregon as
well. And it rarely comes without a heavy
case of smug superiority.

In NYS, about 60 times more deer are hit by cars and trucks than killed by hunters, with a proportionally greater loss of human life in those accidents than in hunting accidents. Why? Because the herds are so huge. Trophy hunt, hunt for meat, who cares? I've had two deer in the front seat with me and survived. They should have a no limit extended season every 7 years to bring them back under control. Before some disease that can spread to humans does.
