and you know a buck that old is going to be too tough to eat yet a young doe without a rack would be tender but for some reason they didnt go hunting during doe season cuz they were never going to eat it -- they wanted it for their
Yes, hunting is a sport whether you are hunting for food or trophy. However the trophy hunting I am speaking of, are the people who go out and kill an animal, just for the fun of the kill and to have a trophy, but never use the animal for food. This usually happens with animals such as cougars, bobcat, lynx, wolves and the like, where people do not eat the meat. They just kill the animal for the sport of killing and a trophy. If you are hunting for food, that is a different story. I would much rather eat wild game, than meat sold in stores loaded with antibiotics, growth hormones and so on. However, I do not hunt. I could not shoot a deer or any other animal, even though I do eat meat, but not a lot of it.
|I just read an article where the prez of PETA wants the jockey of Eight Belles to be fined for making her run in the race and causing her ankles to break!
Who gives PETA the authority to call for this? They have no law enforcement abilities, yet the media goes along with their garbage. I'd still like to know where PETA was when that wild cougar was needlessly shot and killed in Illinoise about 2 weeks ago?
