I got some socks at Walmart yesterday, no I think it was Tuesday.

I'd be afraid to have a gun near my house given my clumnsiness and sense of humour, but my experience has been that hunters, real hunters, not suburban jackasses standing near a farmer's field firing at things that may be a deer, have more respect for the environment and the animals themselves than animal rights activists.

That's why I wanted to club Paul McCartney's ex over the head with her prosthesis.

I gotta agree there. As a guy who grew up in slightly rural (now the border between suburia/rural) NS, I know a LOT "real" hunters and used to occasionally join some others. There is certainly a kind of "code" about how it's done, commonly with respect to ideas of sustainability, cruelty, and safety. More so than the "suburban jackasses" that I happen to know as well.

Sustainability isn't so much in conservation terms as much as the common sense of the word. Hunters like to take their son(s) out at the right age and give them the challenge of bagging their first deer or whatever. Once that's accomplished, and perhaps after Dad gets his too, rarely does the group then go commando and see how many more they can get before it's time to go back home on Sunday. And people in those areas often have a feel for which animals should/shouldn't be hunted in a given season based on stories from other friends who have been out, and what signs in the wild suggest about how many/few there might be of certain animals out there.

Cruelty in that a hunter who learns from his father, who learned from HIS father kind of person - someone who probably been around exchanges of little pearls of wisdom like the one shot, one kill spots because the idea of injuring (haha, defined as separate from killing I guess, eh?!), maiming, scaring, torturing, or seeing how much of a fight an animal can put up is considered cruel - has been around the
idea that it's best to make it quick. I mean, if you're intending on killing it in the first place!

And safety. Heck, I grew up in a house with 4 rifles in plain sight (the glass window of the case having been broken by a bodycheck playing mini-stick hockey more than 20 years ago) just like many other people I know. Never heard of an accident. I guess due to them being in the open, curious kids ask their parents about them, or become inquisitive about them at a young age. And consequently they are indoctrinated in the destructive power and dangers related to guns very early and it sticks.

So have fun, play safe, and enjoy your new toy. I'm kinda jealous, as it looks nice.

if killing innocent animal with your new toy is your thing... that's sad for you and the animal.

why do you need that ? too show your power over defenceless animal... to prove your a man ??

anyway, always wonder what push man too hunt ? it's not even a sport!!

if you like guns that much, join the army, they need you
