It IS consolation…

…albeit just a little bit, to know that if the food supply and distribution network ever got seriously disrupted, Josh Briggs of the Covington News and those like him would be among the first to starve. Maybe in some alternate universe I’d worry about deer hunting humans, but I’d prefer to live in the real world where humans are at the top of the food chain. “Taking a life should be done only out of necessity.” Uh-huh. Well, it’s sorta necessary for us to eat if we want to survive.

Yes, we eat meat. Chicken. Beef. Fish. Most of it is raised. Some of it (fish) is hunted. But let’s stick to sport hunting for the sake of this argument.

“No, Sparky, you don’t get to define the rules of the game. Dead animal is dead animal. If you’re going to question how we get one kind of meat, you have to question how we get them ALL. If you question hunting, you have to question slaughterhouses, fish farms and everything else. But you like meat so you’re not gonna do that, are you? Chickenshit.”

    Doe I took last week, I’d watched grow up FREE for the past 2 odd years, running around my back acres and neighboring areas.

    She had a better life than any feed lot animal. I’ve been in slaughterhouses and on feed lots, as my grandfather sold them supplies.

    She ate well and frolicked for two years before she became a couple months groceries, as opposed to the 3 months to a year of hell that feed lot animals get, depending on species.

    Eventually, we no longer had a need to kill wild animals. Yet for some reason, a lot of people feel they still do.

    Hmm, Josh — we still need to kill wild animals because all the “don’t kill Bambi” crowd like you allowed most of the predators of the game animals to be killed off or decimated. Now, without the hunters — the Bambis of the country would starve.

    Population control? Humans need population control more than deer).

    Apparently he didn’t bother to talk to any wildlife experts before he put pen to paper — that’s obvious. Even more obvious is that he didn’t stop to even think before writing.

    And while I thought a sport was something two parties voluntarily knew they were playing, it appears I’m wrong.

    And most of us are capable of using a dictionary and learing what the word “sport” really means. We do agree on something — you are wrong.

    Morally, hunting deer for sport is no different than hunting people.

    What The Frack!!!!

    You see no difference between harvesting deer so they don’t over graze or starve and the murder of a person!!!

    Dude, you’ve got some serious isses

    If people like myself and my neighbors didn’t tend to harvest does, as you can’t eat antlers and neither of us has wall space for that sort of thing anymore, the balance of bucks and does would be seriously screwed up by the trophy hunters, too.

    Bet he never thought about that, either.

    I spent 68 bucks on a super-combo license, and have 20-30lbs of good steaks in my freezer, along with the non-steak bits and roasts. Go do THAT at HEB or Randalls. And otherwise, they just get hit by cars anyway.

    He needs a lesson from the NUGE!

    Ted Nugent, rock star and avid bow hunter from Michigan , was being interviewed by a liberal journalist, an animal rights activist. The discussion came around to deer hunting. The journalist asked, ‘What do you think is the last thought in the head of a deer before you shoot him? Is it, ‘Are you my friend?’ or is it ‘Are you the one who killed my brother?

    Nugent replied, ‘Deer aren’t capable of that kind of thinking. All they care about is, what am I going to eat next, who am I going to screw next, and can I run fast enough to get away. They are very much like the Democrats in Congress.’

    BTW–the other ten deer of the eleven that used to regularly come in to water and my garden were back the next morning after their “sister” went missing in front of their eyes the afternoon before.

    Assigning human characteristics to baser animals is really SILLY!

    God Bless Ted Nugent. Now I want some deer meat…

    And I really, really hope that guy was trolling, Bob. Not just because of the deer hunting remarks, but also because he spoke of hunting people and not animals with his AR-15, despite how popular ARs and the like have become for hunting various game animals.

    We cull a lot around here with AR-15s. With legal sneaky person cans on the end of them, even. Does that make us super legal deer murderers when the ranch owners have permission from TXPWD to “thin the herd”? Three most popular deer rifles amongst my rancher amigos are AR-15s, Mini-14s, Mini-30s, .204 Rugers, and SKS/AK rifles that have been accurized because of low ammo cost. But AR-15 is KING as far as ranch rifles go in Texas, to the best of my empirical observation. Mine’s been living with a Grendel upper on it for some time, but it’s still an AR-15.
