Thread: Ethical Hunting

  1. #1

    Default Ethical Hunting

    I was bass fishing where they had a 14"to 24" slot limit. I eat the 24" bass and everybody got pissed because they said the bigger bass had better genetics and I was ruining bass fishing.

    So next time I kept the smaller legal bass. I get why did I kill the "baby bass"? It hadn't had enough time to breed.

    Where I hunt deer during opening archery there is a simple rule. If it is brown it is down.

    If it isn't spotted kill it. I am a meat hunter. HOLD the horns! So, gimme something on the smaller side of legal draggin size. Mmmmmmmmm good....

    Why does this apply to the bass and not the deer?

    Do you mean other peoples perspectives? I think there are some people (or at least more people) who look at deer, and think 'pests'. Where as fish they dont. Thats just my guess. I certainly dont agree.

    EVERYBODY LISTEN UP! Please do not let a discussion on the ethics of hunting or fishing turn to name calling and personal attacks (even generalized) again. Passions run high on the subject - I get that. If you cannot discuss it without the petty insults, then don't read or post about it. Thanks in advance for keeping this a fun place to hang out where we can all learn from each other.

    In my opinion...I would only eat a small full grown doe for "Pleasure meat",I have never been a real big fan of venison on its own.So,I would go for the less "gamey" doe,nice and young.But if I had to feed my family I would do what I had to do.Now before any one wonders out loud, Ive eaten a fox,Muskrat,pigs brains,and every type of swimming,hopping, crawling thing the states of Georgia,Illinois,and Louisiana had to offer.I hunt for food,If I'm not going to use at least 90% of what I kill,Ive killed in vain.I believe in morality,just cause its legal,don't make it right.It might be legal in some countries to "do things" to kids,does that mean you should?....IIRC you can shoot does here in Georgia,we have enough of them..

    I like the idea of slot limits on fish rather than the limits we have here in MI.

    As far as deer go I kill em all except for bambi. I feel bad for them, but I still kill em and eat em.

    For me the only unethical thing would be to kill and not eat, just for the pleasure of killing or chase.

    Some people don't wanna hunt or fish, for whatever reason, and that's fine... I wouldn't ever force them to do it because I want to.... what I can't quite understand is why they would want me to not hunt because they don't want to.
    forcing people to follow your belief is fascism.
    I've got no problem with people who don't hunt or fish.... I've got major problem with people who wanna take my rights to hunt or fish away.... they don't want to do it, so nobody should.... seriously, I hate people like that.
    I typically ignore those people, they are sheep who could never fend for themselves.
    ignorance posing as moral superiority.

    If you use the animal for meat, and kill it legally.... I see no problem.

    Ah, but that's what the world is made up of, it's how governments keep us in our pens. It's the oldest trick in the book.

    The oldest trick in the book is placing a frozen pea between her fingers before she gets your pinch of gold dust.

    During the gold rush, services would be traded for gold dust. Just a pinch. A smart madam would squeeze a dried pea between her thumb and finger creating a deep indentation. Then when she got her pinch of gold dust she would get about 10 times as much and no one was the wiser.
