But if you eat what you kill then there is no problem with hunting.

I know a lot of guys around PA that kill a turkey for thanksgiving and a 2 deer for the rest of the year. The meat is leaner with no growth hormones or pesticides coming from the animals food source so can be a lot healthier. Not to mention a hell of a lot more fun and cheaper.

That's not game hunting. When you kill for sport, there's a diffenrece. I went to school in Alabama, and even in middle school, kids would brag about killing a buck with so many points (antlers). Though I'm sure that some of their families actually ate the meat, the main motivation for killing was sport.

However, people like chopchop are too clueless to understand anything about it.
I don't understand how you are a liberal?

I guess if you wanna point out hypocrisy...find someone who owns a fur coat dissing Vick for dog fighting.

Call it what it is, they are both brutal.

Wake the **** up dude, PETA, animal lovers in general, the NRA, and hunters have been going at it for decades. Just cos you started watching 2 weeks ago doesn't mean it hasn't been happening.

Yeah thats true some guys like to be able to brag about getting a big deer. As long as they kill it properly and don't waste the meat then who cares. The antlers are a the only visible scale of age when hunting so it is important to make sure the deer is of age.

Just like we frown on folks in asia eating dogs or some middle easterners worshipping cows (or is that west indian? shyt i dunno).

But in the United States of America you dont fight dogs and it be cool. Period.

It's pretty funny that this country accepts a position of morality when it has a history of treating people as bad or worse than dogs. Just 50 years ago, in many states, Black people were still considered 3/5 of a human.

Again, it's real funny how some people sit on their high horses.

Uh no, there is a difference between:

1. torturing animals for fun and $$

2. Hunting animals for food or sport


#2 has been done by humans since the dawn of their existence....both out of necessity for food, and for social status and competition. It's not brutal when you are ethical. Unfortunately, people like you rely so heavily on pure emotional arguments that you don't bother to see the other side of the argument.

Al Sharpton has spoke out against Vick. He's sided with the pet owners/dog lovers already.

One is significantly less brutal.

You asked the difference and I told you. There is a big difference between hunting and dogfighting. Everything dies, it's the manner in which it does die that upsets certain peoples.

That's true, however, these same animal loving activists are oppotunists as well.
They jumped on the Mike Vick case because he is high profile and it helps them to push their agenda.

There are John Doe's across America who get caught fighting dogs every year, but it's never a national story then.

I'm referring to past arguements that no one speaks out against such things as rap.
