A big part of hunting is for the thrill, yes. However, hunters and anglers contribute more to wildlife than perhaps others who do not participate in purchasing licenses, guns, ammo, fishing poles, other equipment, park passes, etc... The majority of the money that hunters spend in order to be able to hunt in the short, regulated hunting season is used to help wildlife. Do your research and you can see that deer and elk population, as well as bear and many other wildlife species populations were down early 20th century. With a big help from State Wildlife Departments, as well as hunters and anglers, populations are on the rise. There is a reason there are regulations on the amount of time allowed to hunt certain species. Deer hunting for example has 3 to 4 short seasons in the early winter to help with overpopulation, but not so long to endanger the species as someone else had commented what if we kill off the species. Once again research and see the numbers. Hunters help animals more than they hurt them. Regulations are also set on ammunition so animals don't suffer. What's more cruel? Going out quickly and as painless as possible, or slowly from starvation due to overpopulation?
The only reason for hunting for me is meat, I have to feed my family, if the husband bags meat, I put it up, anything other than that is extremely cruel. I have seen clips of men that pay other men to catch and deliver an animal just to hunt. I was appaulled when I saw that.
I agree, I don't get the whole hunting thing myself either..I think its cruel. Especially those hunters that hunt on a fenced in reserve. The animals have no chance then. I guess the only way I would agree with hunting if its not for food would be if the animal was a danger to people and there population was growing way to big. Like alligators
They shouldn't cause them poor animals probably have babies
Wish I knew....they say it's a sport. I think the animals should have guns too. If your not going to eat it, don't kill it! That's just my opinion.
People hunt to gather meat, just like our ancestors did. We also hunt to help control the populations. The animals have rights too.
Its just wrong. Give me a break. Poor defenseless animals who you don't even eat. What did it ever do to you? Nothing. Exactly. Don't try and protest. It is just completely cruel
When we hunt we help the population I hunt deer for there skin and meat like most hunters when people just kill them its wrong but with out hunters the population would get huge and they would starve
In my opinion hunting is just wrong. People say its a sport but if you you are over weight and out of shape whats the sport? I just hate hunting 100% I have always have and always will. What did the deer to to the hunters? Control the population? Who is brain washing you with that junk. Leave mother nature up to population not fat men with guns!!
I have no clue? All it is is killing animals.
