Hunting is alright, nothing wrong with it if you dont waste the body, even less when you have to do it to put food on the table. The only thing that's wrong with "modern hunters" is that they feel like such hot shit when they blow the brains out of something that only knows how to eat, shit, sleep, and mate with a long-range rifle that has tech smarter than the user. If you're hunting for sport while using a weapon meant to practically make you a god compared to what you're "hunting," you're a Goddamned coward.
#547 - tyraxio (12/07/2013) [-]
Let me just point this out, because apparently people are too butthurt about me being anti-hunting so I don't really have anything to lose.
You are all against hunting lions because you have a relationship to the lion. You think the lion is cute, it's like a cat, so it's a bit like that pet of your's too. Also, it looks majestic and such. Now, bring the red thumbs, you know you want to.
#557 - kinginyellow (12/07/2013) [-]
No we don't, you just make shitty assumptions to try and cover your ass. Lions aren't hunted because their not a steady source of food, especially if you live anywhere else in the world. Most any animal looks "majestic" and that's why hunters respect them and use the body respectfully. You just bank on those idiotic "game hunters" that play with the carcass and act like idiots. Those aren't hunters.
#787 - tyraxio (12/07/2013) [-]
Terrorists are not soldiers, no. They do not share definition. A hunter refers simply to a human being who kills wild animals, regardless of method, weapon and reason. Instead of your soldier example, I can give you one that would've been controversial less than a hundred years ago, that all black people are human beings, and therefore human rights apply to them.
In a way, what you are saying is that only white people are real humans (only food hunters (one specific kind of hunter) are real hunters. I know my example is a bit far fetched, so don't take it too literally.
#510 - kinginyellow (12/07/2013) [-]
Are you an idiot?
Deer can be incredibly dangerous, especially if they charge you. And for the gun, good look keeping a steady shot before that deer gets too close. Moose, deer, elk, all are capable of killing people easily. Hell, moose can total a car.
We don't have guns for an unfair advantage, we have them to level the playing field.
#562 - kinginyellow (12/07/2013) [-]
The face that you resort to that video lets me know that you have nothing good to say
#570 - PVTDickStryker (12/07/2013) [-]
Alright, fair enough.
Although, would you please remind me how offing something kilometers away before it can even see you count's as a "level playing field?" Last time I checked, as dangerous as moose, deer, and elk are, none can instantly kill you from a distance you cant do shit about.
#579 - kinginyellow (12/07/2013) [-]
There's also requirements of a hunting rifle:
Guns are loud, can fail, miss, go through without delivering a killing blow (don't cause as much internal damage as a spear or arrow) and can just fuck up. I'd honestly have an animal shot with a gun too, considering how a proper shot can cause less suffering than a shot with other weapons (some broad heads are just torture)
#577 - kinginyellow (12/07/2013) [-]
Just called up my buddy. Maximum effective range for a hunting rifle, providing there's no wind: 500 yards. Don't exaggerate it so much, there's no way you'd even SEE the target from kilometers away. At that distance, all it takes is alerting the animal or missing the shot, and they charge. And shooting at a charging animal is bad idea, usually ending in injury.
#514 - tyraxio (12/07/2013) [-]
Alright, fair enough. Not aware. Let me change my example to rabbits then, which are also common hunting prey.
"level the playing field"
Please explain this example, as I don't quite get it. We don't kill for self-defense, so I don't really see what you mean. We use guns so we can get to kill animals because we like to kill animals. This gives us an unfair advantage as all we have to do is sit in a fucking bush and wait for something to move and we hit it right between the eyes without it even noticing us. This is an unfair advantage.
Also, animals kill out of necessity. We kill out of desire.
But that's cool, if you're pro-hunting, I can do nothing to stop you. I just want you to explain why lions are somehow "protected" from this game.
#524 - kinginyellow (12/07/2013) [-]
Rabbits are killed for pest control in most areas. They're so bad that it's basically become an occupation in countries like Australia.
We started killing animals for food, with basic weapons. We used guns to take out bigger animals that would otherwise kill us. In older days, danger from wolves and coyotes was also present. It WAS self defense and food supply.
Some people still kill for food, because they like natural meat, and they go after animals that aren't going to become extinct anytime soon. Again, food supply. And in where I am, we do have moose and elk wander into the city and attack.
We do NOT kill out of desire, but out of food. Game hunting I don't believe in, but hunting for food I support completely. The lions are apex predators and shouldn't be killed, for what it might do to increase their prey's population. And I never said they were protected, the guy pointed out it's not a fair hunt by any hunter's standards, she killed a motionless target, which is not a sportsman attitude.
#541 - tyraxio (12/07/2013) [-]
I am talking about hunting-hunting. As in, civilian hunting. Pest-control and food (back when hunting was needed for food) not included.
We do NOT kill for food, but out of desire. Even people who claim to do it for food are lying. Tribals killing for food is something different, because these people rely on it for food. In modern life, people kill because they like a taste, and this too is pleasure, but that's irrelevant, because no one gets into hunting if they don't enjoy pulling the trigger and ending a life.
Also >sportsman attitude
Killing is not a sport, period.
#551 - kinginyellow (12/07/2013) [-]
Ok now you're just spouting bullshit, and I have to stop you there. Killing rabbits for pest control is STILL HUNTING, the rabbits are then cooked or skinned and stuffed.
And yes, large portions of people STILL kill for food. Two of my friends never have to buy meat ever, because one has a full family of hunters and enough deer, elk, and moose meat to supply them. YOU just assume it's all about the murder and ignore a big part of hunting. Hunters are respectful for their kill, it's not "bloodlust".
And hunting for sport is about a test of skill.
You're just so hung up on the killing part you assume every hunter is some psychopath obsessed with murder and bloodshed. Next time don't argue with ignorance.
#568 - tyraxio (12/07/2013) [-]
You don't have to eat meat to survive at all, so that argument kind of falls to the ground. That's just a way of justifying your acts.
Hunting is NOT. A. SPORT. Test of skill, indeed, but you have an objective, as you are stating, if you wish to argue you do it for food. I don't call going to work to earn money a test of skill or "sport".
#571 - kinginyellow (12/07/2013) [-]
So why do we still sell meat? A LOT of foods aren't necessary but we eat them, plus meat is a great source of protein prepared naturally without all the fatty crap put into it. I
If you listened, I don't agree with sport hunting, I agree with hunting for food. I just listed why THEY call it sport. I don't "justify killing" I say there is no issue getting your own food through other means. Do they torture the animal? No. Do they force feed the animal? NO.
#644 - tyraxio (12/07/2013) [-]
We sell meat because meat tastes good, and we have a lot of cultural ties to meat. Also, two things, meat is absolutely full of saturated fat, and while indeed a source of protein, definately not the best source of protein we have access to (broccoli, for example, contains higher amounts of protein pr. gram, with an index of almost no fat at all). Meat has high amounts of cholesterol as well.
I'm certainly more in favour of hunting for food than I am for factory farming, obviously, but I don't think there are many excuses for killing an animal, just as I do not think there are many excuses for killing a human being. Self-defense being one of the only I can think of.
#647 - kinginyellow (12/07/2013) [-]
Ok then why kill plants? Or fungi? Those are living things, why should we be eating them? If you say that animals do so, they also eat other animals to survive. Why not just let ourselves starve, because no matter what we do, something living ALWAYS dies. You must be against fishing too.
#658 - tyraxio (12/07/2013) [-]
I am certainly against fishing too.
Because plants, fungi, algae, bacteria, vira et cetera does not have brains or complex central nervous systems. They do not have a sense of awareness, which animals do. All animals does to some extent have wishes and desires like you and me (yes, even jellyfish and insects, although of course to a lesser extent than mammals), while plants, fungi, algae... do not.
Also, let me make an important note, I am not saying that if you were on an uninhabited island, where only you and a sheep lived, that you were not allowed to eat the sheep. I don't think I personally could get myself to do it, but that would be self-defense and highly understandable. I would not judge you in any way based on that.
#672 - kinginyellow (12/07/2013) [-]
They do have a form of sense, and you do not need a complex nervous system OR brain to feel pain. Basic animals like worms, planaria, nemotodes, ect can feel pain, and do not have brains or complex nervous systems. In fact, picking mushrooms means you are removing their FRUITING BODY, their only way to reproduce. Didn't know they produce sexually too, did you?
The thing is that every living thing can sense pain or danger, and their still eaten. Living beings kill other living beings for food. It's always been like that, humans are just the first to question a cycle that has gone on forever.
#762 - tyraxio (12/07/2013) [-]
Sense is not equal to awareness. They can react to stimuli, I am in no way disputing this, but they are not aware of the external world, and even less so, their internal worlds (emotions, desires etc.). Also what do you mean "produce sexually"? Of course I know, every being that does not rely on cloning itself (like strawberries) reproduce sexually.
Plants can react to stimuli which is harmful to their continued existence; they do not feel pain. By saying you feel pain, you are inferring a sense of feeling, which is not present in plants, as they do not have a brain or complex central nervous system. Why is this needed, you might ask. It's simple; without a CNS or a brain, the organism has no centralised understanding of anything. This means that a single vine can move towards sunlight, but there is no decisionmaking taking place; there is only that which the plant is coded to do as a reaction to certain stimuli. You might argue that this is actually what happens with insects as well, but that is a much more complicated argument, which might not have a clear-cut answer.
Indeed, we are the first to question the cycle. Why is this? Because we have a civilised sense of morals, and we have an explicit possibility of making decisions. Animals do not, animals do not evolve technologically. They have to rely on their natural instinct to survive, we do not. The lion needs to kill the gazelle to survive, but we do not need to kill the cow to survive.

People who lack time or funding to sell the kittens or even drive to a fucking adoption center, and are clearly too lazy to care for more cats.
But really, one thing you've got to learn about life, is that human beings treat animals like shit, this is only one example. I'm not trying to preach veganism or anything here, but really, check out some factory farming videos, some grim shit happens at human hands.

I've already said that American strive for the american dream, to increase taxes isn't something you're supposed to do to them. Just as you don't force an ice bear to swim it's entire life even though it possibly can . That's the thing, people don't realize that they have a completely different viewpoint, so we can't force our ideals onto them.
#167 - tyraxio (12/02/2013) [-]
Read my comment, that's what I said.
Also, tbh, don't even play a saviour when it comes to forcing ideals on other nations; especially Western civilisations, the pinnacle of which being America. I mean, fucking Hell, they're down there in the Middle East forcing some ideals with guns. At least I'm keeping this civil and on text, which, for the record, there is nothing wrong with. I wouldn't go do terror in another country in order to create a socialdemocratic nation, but I don't see in any way what harm a discussion does.7
