Strange question for an anime forum but I've seen a few outliers hanging around here..
Anybody hunt? What do you hunt if so?
What do you think about hunting?
I have recently gotten into archery.. going to buy a composite bow sometime today. Once I get my accuracy down, I was thinking of heading into northern Ontario to hunt some wolves.
Now, I don't want to kill indiscriminantely, I love animals. I don't know if I could kill a deer under normal hunting scenarios to be truthful. I have a respect even a kinship for nature and to kill a deer that is just lying there doing nothing.. couldn't do it.
But, the way I rationalize it so that it helps nature, is to kill animals destroying or upsetting the balance/local ecology. In northern Ontario the wolves are killing off the deer and rabbit population, so a thinning of their herd is needed. That is where I could bring myself to kill wolves, deer etc, if the end result assists nature in some way.
Some may ask "why even hunt period" well to be frank, I have strong hunting instincts. Many guys who hunt feel the same way, I guess it's a male throwback to the primal roots. I like to fight, I like to punch and be punched, so it makes sense I'd like to hunt. It could always be worse; I could shoot a moose from 350m away with a rifle.. I will never respect people who do that and laugh how they consider themselves "hunters"
