I've heard many things about hunting. some people think it is bad. is it? :hmmm:
oh boy, thats just a fun question now isnt it. i would imagine if one were to say hunting is bad and all about killing, then the same person would say that catch and release is kidnapping and torture. i love hunting, yet i catch and release when fishing so that makes me one sick and twisted individual
Depends on what you're hunting for!
Wow, vague and troublesome. This will be fun to watch.
I've heard many things about strippers...Is getting a lap dance bad?
Only if they give you something to remember them by that requires strong antibiotics to get rid off.:rofl::rofl:
Hunting plays an integral part in game management throughout the country. People destroyed the populations of natural predators, ie bears, wolves, etc, so someone needs to 'regulate' game, and hunting does just that.
On the flip side of that is the fact that hunting is inversely selective, meaning that instead of the Darwinian model, survival of the fittest, in which the weaker animals are removed from the population, the stronger, healthy animals are removed. In that sense it can be seen as destructive.
It remains my opinion, as well as most people in the field that most of the time hunting is necessary to maintain a healthy ecosystem.
This should be interesting.
that is the only real answer to this post
John a lapdance is not bad as long as you don't take the stripper to breakfast.......and hunting is good and necessary.
You've got to be more specific if you want a real discussion here.
Anything can be bad or good.
There's a difference between hunting and actually harvesting of wild game. When done legally and ethically, there is nothing bad to be found in the harvesting of game. As noted, it is necessary to maintain some semblance of natural balance in a world where we've upset the balance of nature. Hunters, as a group, pour more money into conservation programs than any of the groups who might criticize hunting.
Hunters in the early 1900's came together and saved many species from extinction. Market hunters had seriously reduced many populations of wildlife. Some, like the Passenger Pigeon, were exterminated. Hunters brought about legislation that set up conservation and management of wildlife species. Kinda like we as fishermen have to do now to save some precious runs of fish. Nobody else seems to give a crap. :beathead:
What are all the environmental groups, tree huggers, animal rights people doing as Endangered fish species sit on the edge of extinction?
Where did you hear that it was bad, just curious.
