I know that in some parts of the country if deer aren’t hunted they die from starvation and I understand that. Totally different than big game hunting. We could end up extinguishing some species.

Same here.

If it were me, I'd drop em in Lion territory NAKED with some bloody beef wrapped around their necks. Take a photo for all the world to see because they are narcissists after all and let nature take its course. Dinner time!

If everyone snuck into a movie the movie would go broke.. If every countries people snuck into America , we would go broke.. the dems know nothing about cause and effect... We can't keep giving welfare to anchor babies and free health care to the world.. we are 22 trillion dollars in debt and no way are we ever going to get out of debt. Ever!

You did mis-quote me though, I did not say that "all hunters" are cowards. I said game hunters and trophy hunters are. And I may very well have used the wrong vernacular in describing what I was talking about. I'm talking about people who hunt animals for prize, trophy, to tell everyone what a big dick they have.
People who hunt for food, or even in the case of the story you told are a different situation. Obviously there are exceptions to every rule.
But again, I do stand by what I said in that hunting is not not a sport. It is something that is done and at one time in human history it was believed to be necessary for survival, now we know that it is not. It's something that people choose to do. Again, there are exceptions to every rule.

No , hunting is not a "sport." It got that label from royalty of different places that did it as "sport." When royalty were the only ones allowed to hunt. Wild animals were considered the kings property. And the kings, princes what have you would go out on horse back, in chariots and such, run animal to ground and kill them . This was called "sport" an the label stuck.


Many states here now have game regulations covering "subsistence" hunting. To a real hunter it is more akin to a religious ritual than a sport. It is for me.

Because it's "legal"?


I support some of those things, don't support others, but "because it's legal is no litmus test. Hell, half the stuff done in the Holocaust was legal. Slavery was Legal.
No to all of your non-relevant arguments. They hunted in another country.

No mentally ill people should decide what gender they are much less use a bathroom of their choice. Asylum laws suck and all illegal immigrants should be deported.

Your existence extinguish more species than hunting.

Species become extinct because of human encroachment of their habitats.

Congrats on a successful hunt, and for a happy marriage. And doubly so for melting some snowflakes; that just makes a good day even better.

And may they experience the other side of the coin and one day be the hunted themselves. And may the photo of their dead carcasses being picked over by another one of nature's creatures be forever captured in photos. And that would really be true poetic justice and something to behold.

It's so admirable how you ooze with moral virtue.
