  • Why people are idiots about the shooting sports...

    I'm sitting here watching Bambi with my kid.

    Talking animals and hunters who are total billy-bobs that shoot anything that moves.  No wonder the bulk of people who have never been in an actual forest with actual animals think that's what hunters are like.  

    Seriously...

    I'm thinking of pulling a tag for Elk this year for the first time in a decade simply because I need the meat.  You can't get lean healthy meat anymore that's not full of hormones or antibiotics without paying a fortune.  I can bag an elk and get enough lean, healthy mean for a whole year with the way I eat.

    So those of you who watched Bambi as a kid...  It's not like that.  Hunters don't go through the woods indescriminately killing everything that moves.  They don't use dogs and burn down the forest.  They don't fire over and over like the billy-bob in the movie.

    You can now go back to your regularly scheduled program of peeing down your legs at pictures of scary guns.

      Apparently you've not watched Hank Parker 3D.

      They "tagged out" on whitetail in one morning, so they went back to the truck and got their shotguns. And proceeded to obliterate as many flying creatures as possible, letting out a huge "HAW HAW HAW THAT WAS AWESOME" after each bird sent spiraling to its death.

      So yes, hunters do go killing everything they possibly can.... and laughing with joy at the slaughter. It is like that, despite your lying efforts to pretend otherwise. It's right there on the tube, for all to see.

        if these dumbasses were killing migratory birds, which is almost all species, they're guilty of a crime.

      Here are some real personal experiences with hunters.

      1) Watching a neighbor from down the street going out at dusk in his cams with a his cam hunting bow.  Hunting at night is both stupid and illegal.

      2) Working for a guy when I lived down South who got arrested by a state game warden for "firelightin'"--one night a deer froze in his truck's headlights and he grabbed his shot-gun off the rack and went gunning for it ...and the warden turned on his party lights...Hunting at night is both stupid and illegal.

      3) Same boss took far more deer than the law allowed, include more than the single doe/fawn allowed, for meat in his freezer. 

      4) Came out one day and found a hunting arrow in the back of my shed: the hunter was a) trespassing on my neighbor's POSTED land and b) letting loose 'way too close to a house, in total violation of the hunting laws in NJ.

      5) Another boss, here in NJ, would shoot ANYTHING that came into his yard, even if it was a neighbor's cat.  He just liked to kill animals with his bow or his gun.

      6) In the woods behind my house, again on posted land (not mine) a hunter kept a tree stand.

      Now I like to think that most hunters follow the rules, and follow the laws, both for the legal reasons and just plain common sense safety.  But my PERSONAL experience is that there are many, many examples of people who don't give a sh!t about safe hunting practices, the law, or respecting private property.  I'd like to  assume they are a small minority, just like the @sshole doing 95 in a 65 zone is the exception, rather than the rule.  But like the guy piloting his 2 tons of 300-500hp 30mph over the speed limit is risking others lives, so the guy with the shotgun or hunting bow who does not respect the safe practices, the law, or private property is also risking the lives of others needlessly.

      WTF is so hard about following existing hunting laws and safe hunting practices???????

      The thing that scares people about guns is not the legitimate hunters who know the rules and have respect for both their surroundings and the animals they kill. The problem is all the "Billy-Bobs" in all those YouTube videos who go blasting away with fully-automatic weapons for the infantile joy of making loud noises and causing damage. Those are the idiots who give shooting and guns a bad name; problem is, they're also the ones who get an awful lot of press because of their poor gun handling skills and general idiocy.

      If I ever did go hunting, I would go with a professional guide who knows the area and can help me get a clean, quick kill. He or she would also help me track a wounded animal and finish it off, rather than letting it suffer a slow, agonizing end, while I killed something else.

      As for tree stands, those might work in some places, but where I live in New England, you might be asking for trouble. The woods here are very dense, not like the Rockies below the tree line, and certainly not like spotting elk above the tree line. It is quite possible to not see a deer that is relatively close. It's also possible to mistake someone's white mittens for "two deers' tales" and kill a woman in her back yard because you didn't know how close you were to someone's house. That happened in Maine, some years back.

        I don't stereotype, but I know there are responsible hunters and there are ****************************s as well.

        Everyone in my family are professional hunters.  My Cousin Mark even does a bit of Guide work on the side for a licensed guide service occasionally but his issue is he's completely intolerant of idiots or people who aren't relatively "Professional" hunters as well.  He taught his Son Tyler to kill with head shots whenever possible.  You track an elk till you get the shot then you take them with a CNS shot that basically kills them instantly.  Barring that double-lunging them or one through the heart will do.  So the guy he guides for sends the real seasoned hunters out with Mark and Mark finds the big bulls for them but keeps the novice hunters or the guys who are idiots for himself.  

        Youtube was a real eye opener for me.  I grew up in an environment where you went out and tracked an animal in its environment.  You never took a shot unless it was a clean shot and you were absolutely sure of what you were shooting at.  Basically the bowhunter mentality.  I then joined the Marine Corps and because I'd spent alot of my childhood creeping around hunting animals who were much better at getting away than I was at catching them, I was naturally a hell of a good scout and point man.  

        After I got out I'd lost all interest in hunting.  No desire to kill anything but I don't want to feed my body the crap you buy in stores anymore.

        Those idiots are few and far between in my experince, and I've hunted for 34 years. The worst I've seen have been city boys and believe it or not Native Canadian Indians. The city boys you'd always see on the Sunday before opening day on Monday in the sporting good stores buying their rifles and bore sighting them knowing they'd never sight them in. Now the natives up in Quebec sickened me, we go up every few years for the winter caribou hunt and if you catch it when they are heavely migrating it isn't much of hunt as there are thousands to choose from. The natives that I witnessed where using underpowered Mini-14's which is a .223 round and would only shoot an animal in the road and if it didn't drop in the road they didn't go after it just shot another.

        Seriously there are idiots everywhere when it comes to hunting,Not enough officers to be spread around and enforce the laws.

        Then the Good hunters pay for the stupid ones actions of course.

         

        Hunters should have to take a course and prove they have no mental/drug and booze issues to hunt.

          You do have to take a safety course, and if you are caught hunting under the influence you will be fined and your privileges revoked.

          It's my 3-gun rifle dude...  

          Actually I'd only been out of the Grunts for about 9 months at that point so I had an LMT that was basically exactly what I'd been issued.  I still have it.  

          I don't know what you'd expect me to do...  Break down in tears and try and reason with the dude?  

          **************** that.  

          Like it or not there are only two ways you can deal with your fellow human being.  You can reason with them through logic and win them to your side or you can use force and force them to do your bidding.  If you look at humanity, every interaction you have falls into one of those two categories.  

          I prefer to reason with people but if someone has a gun and is intent on using it your options are exactly zero unless you're similarly armed and have a tactical situation which affords you the opportunity to protest their position.

          Not a crime, dblazer.... but disgusting as 'sport' nonetheless.

          If you're gonna hunt, do it fairly. Killing creatures that have been raised in cages ain't hunting. It is mere slaughter.
