Well; you came here under your own free will and said what you've said but I certainly can't understand how you came to the conclusions you have.
Yep, came here of my own free will and said what I said.
The oddest thing, too.....The more I read your posts, the more apparent I think it becomes.... There always seem to be just one more remark you need to add concerning how terrible hunters are.
I am telling how it is from some folks POV of hunting and hunters, not trying to get dig at them. Media, stories, hearsay... people form opinions on these things. People can only envision a poor animal being killed from a sports POV. Hearing of domestic pets who have got caught up in the hunt etc... People form opinions on these things.
People can worry about these things.
Oh; you're quick to insist how you think hunting has it's benefits and how comprise is a good thing....
I am not that quick in saying it... because I realise intellectually that there are apparent reasons for shooting wild animals (or so I am told), it does not make me say or think "Oh! thats OK then, that makes me feel a lot better about it".
I accept that sick wild animals only may need to be culled or whatever... and I also realise that some hunters must believe that they are doing wild life and the environment a favour by hunting... I still do not neccessarily think in the same way or agree... Sure intervention is intervention whether it be to cull or hunt or to rescue and treat, shooting a wild animal is intervening with nature also.
But then that little quirky backhanded comment or passing reference to any of a number of patent ARA- sung threats posed by hunters works it's way loose.
I am telling how it is from some folks POV of hunting and hunters as I said above. Not making a sneaky dig at anyone. (If I wanted to have a dig it would be up front have done so before and can again but hopefully won't)
If pro hunters know something more about it all and they would prefer people to have a possible, better opinion of the whole thing and they feel that there is a general lack of education on the subject regarding the people who are making opinions in general, which are not favorable to hunting, also for the folk whom, when, they see hunters walking towards their area brandishing a gun and worry about their intentions towards their domestic pets and so on... then, what I meant was - anyone visiting this thread in the last week or so would not have learned anything other than they already originally thought, except perhaps even more negativity about it all. Was the point that I was trying to make.
Maybe it's just your way of communcating..
I have tried to explain it better above
Anyone else notice what I'm talking about? Or is it just me?
