I don't hunt but live right in the rural heart of the deer hunting area and you guys have no idea how much I fucking hate you during the first two weeks of November. I live near a conservation area where no hunting is allowed. I run or mountain bike with my dog on the trails and make a point for us both to wear orange for these two weeks. One year I was on the trail and came across three hunters who weren't supposed to be there. I politely explained they were not allowed to hunt in this area and the one asshole responded "what are you going to do about it". I was almost ready to fight the guy but with three guys with rifles I diplomatically backed away once again trying to explain it is a conservation area. And then there are the other assholes that come to the border of the conservation area and send their dogs in the flush the deer out. I don't get the hunting thing unless you're actually going to eat what you kill or for conservation purposes. I knew a guy in a hunting party that shot five deer tags and none of them eat veal
. WTF? Just the "thrill" of killing a defenseless animal. How manly. I also don't get the "male bonding" thing of being shacked up in a cabin with a bunch of guys farting, snoring and drinking all week. One year we locally had five guys die - two shot by other hunters, two heart attacks and another lost in the woods and died of exposure.
Hunting is not my thing. I don't get it or have any interest but all I want to say is be responsible. You have a lot of assholes in your ranks.
What does eating baby cattle have to do with hunting deer?
In the free world of the United states it is illegal to hunt dear and leave the meet. Is that not a law up North? Or are you just uninformed anti hunter bashing.
BTW when you ride that mountain bike with your dogs, do you keep them on leash and pick up their poo? If not you are causing more harm to the environment than probably any other user. Off-leash dogs cause the most habitat problems for parks.
