gja: Langdon_777: gja: NannyStatePark: Langdon_777: dittybopper: kregh99: /people that kill for fun are something this world can do without

People that kill for fun, when properly regulated, ensure that we all have wildlife to enjoy. If it weren't for sport hunters, there would be no deer, bear, or wild turkeys in the entire eastern United States, and probably fewer other species also.

If it were not for hunters - there would be thousands of them, yes some starving and dying, but thousands. I heard the USA use to have Buffalo....

Are you talking about that Bison that's nine bucks a pound at the store? Damn good burger, maybe I will grab some for the weekend.  Glad my demand fuels their recovery as a species.

I will join you in a bison burger, my friend.
Cool thing: bison is BETTER for you than beef!
Bison has less fat, calories & cholesterol compared to beef, chicken, pork and salmon.
And, it has more iron - so is great for women.

Eggs is slaughter too, pal. You are advocating the destruction of possible embryos.

Oh, BTW....egg yolks have MUCH cholesterol, so you fail.....


Yup. Life is food. For you to live, something else has to die. Period. The only disagreement is where you draw the line about what you are willing to kill, or have killed for you, in order for you to live.

The mother doesn't provide... People provide... people pulled those resources from their natural habitat and transplanted them to a region that was suitable for mass production.

Vegetarians seem to forget, the ONLY reason they are able to CHOOSE to live that way is through technology... even as little as 150 years ago, you couldn't have the options all year round that you have now...

Modern machinery makes it possible for people to have access to fruits and vegetables all year round... before that people had to store grains for the winter because grains were the only kind of non-meat product that would last longer than a week.

Now, trucks and trains transport your fruits and vegetables and nuts across country so you can enjoy some fresh fruit or broccoli.

Before modern machinery, drying fruit out in the sun was possible, but ultimately unsafe due to bacterial growth and insect contamination...

You are only able to live your left wing lifestyle because technology allows it, without it, you couldn't have your little "cause"

Looking at Wisconsin bear hunting regulations it states that: "Youth ages 10 and 11 may only shoot a bear as a 'backup shooter' or possess a firearm if they are in compliance with all the Hunting Mentorship Program requirements." It appears that the role of a 'backup shooter' is described as: "...to shoot a bear that was first lawfully shot, but not killed, by a Class A bear license holder but only if killing the bear is necessary to protect human safety

The article states she killed it with a single shot and there is no mention of anyone else shooting first (Han Solo excluded) or being in danger. Is there any Wisconsin Farkers that hunt that can elaborate on what a "back up shooter" is and how that applies to youth hunters?

dittybopper: CeroX: Ditty, if you've done this let me know, any tips, tricks or advice would be appreciated...

I can help you with the arrows, but my father made my bow, so I can't be much help there.

I have made an atlatl, but unfortunately you can't hunt with one in NYS. If you could, I'd be practicing with it every farkin' day it isn't raining or snowing, just to be good enough for hunting season.


Can't in ohio either, but i live 1/2 hour from the river and can hunt in KY... Can't rifle hunt dear in ohio, only shotgun... and you can't hunt with buckshot, only slugs...

But you know what you CAN hunt in ohio? Canadian Geese... that's right, a couple years ago they opened up canadian geese season in Jan... I finally got some revenge on those shiat factories for biting me in the leg in the parking lot of my work!

i digress again...

sorry... hard to keep focus today...

Anyway, i'll let you know how it comes out... i should be splitting the wood in a few weeks...

I don't know what about Wisconsin, but in Ohio it means that you have a licensed, experienced, hunter that will do the hunting, tracking, etc, and the back up can take the shot upon guidance of the primary... it's meant to be a "guided hunt"

In other words, you could seriously endanger yourself or others if you've never hunted bear or other dangerous animals before, so you have to go out with an experienced guide hunter on your first time out. Without an experienced guide, you could seriously walk into a trap and get yourself and people you are with killed... getting between a cub and her momma for example... very dangerous...

It might seem like common sense not to get between a momma and her cub, but when you are out there, you could literally turn around a tree and find yourself in that position and not realize it...

Something we had to learn when hunting in Southern KY and TN

I'm assuming it was on a private preserve, so the hunting laws wouldn't apply.

I'm guessing she was in compliance with the Hunting Mentorship Program, not there as a backup shooter. You can be a mentored hunter if your (licensed) hunting mentor is within arms reach, and there is only one gun or bow between the two of you.

dittybopper: Langdon_777: I really want the lion hunters to use an Onyx knife and that is all - eat it or be eaten, it doesn't bother me.

But please stop calling modern hunting 'hunting'.

Onyx doesn't make a good knife. Obsidian does. The bottom two pieces here are obsidian, and were supposed to be a knife blade, until I farked up and broke it, so I turned it into a arrowhead and a spear point:

[i56.tinypic.com image 640x480]

As for modern hunters, what is your point? Don't forget that for ancient man, that was largely his "job". He could devote the time and effort to becoming skilled at it because he wasn't punching a clock, and his seasons were unlimited. Also, his life, and that of his family, depended on his ability.

Today, most people don't have that amount of time to put into it, and to be honest, even with modern equipment, hunting wild animals is still hard*.

I *REFUSE* to play into the politics of division. Just because I chose a certain path, doesn't mean that others must follow, or that I am somehow superior to those who chose to use a modern rifle and a tree stand (or whatever). They are also hunters, just hunters using different, but equally valid, methods. Like Benjamin Franklin once said, "We must all hang together, or we will most assuredly hand separately".


*Depending on the species, of course.


I really have luved the pics.

Its a bit like using drones and long rang missiles against dudes with rifles and (maybe) an old rocket launcher - its just unfair, it is asymmetric (even though that word is currently being used to make the stone age peasants look tough).

Ya know bugger the weapon - kill all the animals you like but you must use your hands alone.

Why is it that you and the hundreds of other hate-mongers in this thread are totally convinced that she killed the bear and then threw all the meat in the garbage. Bear is delicious.

Yep. And getting people to voluntarily spend tens of millions of dollars to increase wildlife habitat, along with the tens of millions they spend semi-involuntarily via excise taxes on hunting equipment, is an awesome way to pay for it. It's win-win all around: The species get to live their lives in natural surroundings as nature intended, people who enjoy hunting get to keep doing it, and everyone else who enjoys nature benefits from the largesse of the sport hunters.

I compete regularly with my flintlock:

i39.tinypic.com

Every year, I do primitive biathlons in the winter. Out of the 65 shots I've fired in competition*, I've had a single misfire with the flintlock, and it wasn't because of the gun, it was because I got distracted and rammed a ball home with no powder under it. If you have a well-built flintlock, and you load it properly, it will fire.

Well now, wait a minute. That's not true. I have a root cellar full of vegetables I've grown myself, some that keep well into late March. Winter squash, potato, onion, carrots, beets, rutabega, turnip.

Apples also keep well as do dried beans and some other legumes without canning or refrigeration. As do all kinds of nuts. Some vegetables like leeks will over winter right in the garden. I've picked fresh leeks with 6" of snow on the ground. Swiss chard and kale will survive several frosts.

There's nothing wrong with harvesting animals for food to survive. But hunting animals to satiate a reptilian desire to kill for the sake of killing is farking disgusting and we should attempt to evolve beyond that.

But nope, she shot it because killing things is fun. Well little girl, do you know who else seems to like to kill for the fun of it? God. And he's aiming down his little finger-gun at you as we speak.

Millennium: REO-Weedwagon: Trophy hunters are sociopathic no matter their age.

I agree that trophy hunting is wasteful and kind of douchey, but sociopathic? That's going rather far; among other things, it anthropomorphizes the bear.


I have zero doubt that trophy hunters would hunt human beings if they could get a permit for it.

So a "dream come true" for this person who is waiting on lifesaving organs is to be able to go out and kill other living beings? That they weren't even going to put to any sort of good use afterwards? Just taking shiatty pictures with the corpse?

for good or for awesome: Good lord. I'm always surprised at the number of people on Fark that think killing an animal like this is a horrible tragedy. None of you need to eat meat. You do it because you like it. If killing this bear gives this little girl and her family some comfort good for them. As long as the animal is not endangered have at it.


I disagree with the bolded. If killing the bear provided the girl and her family with food, then more power to them. If they're killing just to kill, then thank god the girl's time on earth is short. fark her.

Mose: CeroX:

Vegetarians seem to forget, the ONLY reason they are able to CHOOSE to live that way is through technology... even as little as 150 years ago, you couldn't have the options all year round that you have now...

Modern machinery makes it possible for people to have access to fruits and vegetables all year round... before that people had to store grains for the winter because grains were the only kind of non-meat product that would last longer than a week.

Now, trucks and trains transport your fruits and vegetables and nuts across country so you can enjoy some fresh fruit or broccoli.

Before modern machinery, drying fruit out in the sun was possible, but ultimately unsafe due to bacterial growth and insect contamination...

You are only abl ...

Well now, wait a minute. That's not true. I have a root cellar full of vegetables I've grown myself, some that keep well into late March. Winter squash, potato, onion, carrots, beets, rutabega, turnip.

Apples also keep well as do dried beans and some other legumes without canning or refrigeration. As do all kinds of nuts. Some vegetables like leeks will over winter right in the garden. I've picked fresh leeks with 6" of snow on the ground. Swiss chard and kale will survive several frosts.

/not a vegetarian


Alright, i'll concede to the point of potatoes and other root veggies... Kale and Chard surviving 2 frosts is really only valid if you live in an area that it doesn't really snow or frost that often...

My grandmother used to keep potatoes in the basement, they actually started growing roots down there... I wouldn't peg onions to do that though, I've had onions go bad in just a couple of weeks... Carrots wither up but are still technically edible... I have no idea about turnips, i don't like them anyway... She also tried keeping green beans in the basement, but we always had to string them and can them quickly after a month or so because they would start to turn...

But my grandparents also lived on a farm and raised their own meat and gardens on about 40 acres... not everyone can do that, and certainly not your typical vegan

This opinion, repeated often in this thread, just drives me nuts.
Talk about sociopathy.

That's funny, nowhere in either the Daily Fail article or the local news story here say anything about whether or not it was going to be put to any kind of use, everyone here is just assuming they won't.

/live about 20 minutes from where the story took place.
// It's very rare for Wisconsinite folks to hunt anything and not eat or donate the meat.
