No bloody way

Could you ever be good friends with someone who hunted purely for sport?

  • DA
  • At first I thought "hells yeah!" But then I realized that most hunting rednecks enjoy good deer meat, including my uncle. Only someone wasteful, like a blueblood, would leave the carcass when you could have venison chops for five months.

  • naverno da )
  • Yes. But only if he takes off his scary face plate and lets his dreadlocks down once and awhile. I'd pay good money to see him eat a sandwich with those bug mandibles.
  • Isn't this a repeat question? Hunting for sport,,, hmmm how about eating for sport, is that okay? Do we even consider that we really are above animals, but i digress. I'm all for treating God's creation with dignity but when is this putting the species above humans going to start sounding strangely odd to someone other than myself? Is there anyone out there that cares that over 820,151 legal induced abortions were reported to CDC for 2005 These children have been killed for sport; It's call abortion. I'd say we have a much more difficult discussion to debate other than befriending those who kill animals for sport, I am not sure of the statistics of killing animals for sport, but i would beg someone to cite a web page for me to do the research,,, when i googled both topics, sport killing statistics, nothing came up, when i googled abortion statistics i got this information from the CDC - a government run program. Read for yourself below. But before you do, please do not tell me i am judging women who have had abortions, i am not doing that. there is always forgiveness to those who have true regret and sorrow for taking an innocent life. And if you curse at me i will delete your comments. If, however on the other hand you have an intelligent debate or position to the contrary, i will be happy to discuss my position with you. From the CDC (US government) website: http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/ss5713a1.htm Problem/Condition: CDC began abortion surveillance in 1969 to document the number and characteristics of women obtaining legal induced abortions. Reporting Period Covered: This report summarizes and describes data voluntarily reported to CDC regarding legal induced abortions obtained in the United States in 2005. Description of System: For each year since 1969, CDC has compiled abortion data by state or area of occurrence. Information is requested each year from all 50 states, New York City, and the District of Columbia. For 2005, data were received from 49 reporting areas: New York City, District of Columbia, and all states except California, Louisiana, and New Hampshire. For the purpose of trends analysis, data were evaluated from the 46 reporting areas that have been consistently reported since 1995. Results: A total of 820,151 legal induced abortions were reported to CDC for 2005 from 49 reporting areas, the abortion ratio (number of abortions per 1,000 live births) was 233, and the abortion rate was 15 per 1,000 women aged 15--44 years. For the 46 reporting areas that have consistently reported since 1995, the abortion rate declined during 1995--2000 but has remained unchanged since 2000. For 2005, the highest percentages of reported abortions were for women who were known to be unmarried (81%), white (53%), and aged <25 years (50%). Of all abortions for which gestational age was reported, 62% were performed at <8 weeks' gestation and 88% at <13 weeks. From 1992 (when detailed data regarding early abortions were first collected) through 2005, the percentage of abortions performed at <6 weeks' gestation has increased. A small percentage of abortions occurred at >15 weeks' gestation (3.7% at 16--20 weeks and 1.3% at >21 weeks). A total of 35 reporting areas submitted data stating that they performed and enumerated medical (nonsurgical) procedures, making up 9.9% of all known reported procedures from the 45 areas with adequate reporting on type of procedure. In 2004 (the most recent years for which data are available), seven women died as a result of complications from known legal induced abortion. One death was associated with known illegal abortion. I am sad and sickened that we can look at human lives with such callous, disdain and disregard. When will we as a human race consider that our beloved off spring are way more than an inconvenience. They are the future, they are our hearts, they are people that deserve the right to live beyond their mothers tummy. Please don't give me the argument of incest or rape, read the statistics above. God alone holds the power of life and death in his hands. It is not something to free wield in our hands for a matter of convenience. CajunNCary

  • I dont really know how to answer this question, seeing as I used to hunt, and would never eat the animals. However, It was only small game (turkeys); I wouldn't ever have the heart to kill a dear or anything else. My father is an outdoorsman, and thats all I've ever known. I don't think it's wrong at all, because I was always told that if there weren't hunters, there would be an over-population of certain animals, and that would create a mess. However, I have been a vegetarian on and off (off due to health problems) for a few years now, and I try to limit my consumption of animals. I belong to peta, but I also feel that everyone is free to make their own choices! =]

    ..I dont like trapping at all though, I think that's wrong.

  • No I could not. I do not believe in hunting, for any reason!

  • I'm friends with some people who hunt for sport only. That's what happens when you live in Pennsylvania, AKA the state that has the day off school and work on the first day of Deer Season. But I would be friends with those people. I don't hunt at all, and I do believe that killing animals is wrong and all, but here in Pennsylvania it's a really big sport. People take off weeks of work and school to go hunting. It's just a normal thing like basketball and crap. In fact, my school even has an Outdoor Sports Club, which is basically the hunting club. They show you how to handle a rifle, trap a turkey, use turkey calls, use hunting dogs, and stuff like that. It's not really looked down upon where I live.

  • Well Hunting is not a trend anymore, why can't that person find some other sport. Something that endangers their own lives not some innocent creature. So No, I could never be good friends with anyone like that.
