bringtheruckuss replied to your post: What is the point of hunting? Why is it fun to shoot and kill innocent animals for no discernible reason? Why can’t you just go to a shooting range and shoot bullets at a wall? These animals are not bothering you, I fail to understand why you feel the need to bother them.
I went hunting once and took a 13 pnt buck. I’m glad i did it and all but I’ll never do it again. If I’m going to eat something as amazing as the animal I killed I’d want to know it wasn’t just lead through a slaughter house. sad but gratifying
It’s actually an argument I have with a lot of deer hunters here. There are some that get all bent out of shape during “Earn-A-Buck”, when the deer population is so high that the DNR makes you take a doe before you can shoot a buck.
I understand the mentality of trophy hunting, I honestly do, and I can imagine the feeling of accomplishment when you get the deer of a lifetime.
But you can’t eat antlers.
