I love how the anti-hunting representation in these posts have done nothing but attack and name call... I guess when all the misinformation fails you have to resort to those superior vegan/liberal "brains" that we savages and meateaters all lack. I wish I was more open minded and enlightened.
Ignorant people are the only reason this is an issue. 1) taxes collected from hunting licenses are the reason you have the deer to appreciate in the first place, 2) the fact that "inbred idiots" was used to stereotype all hunters is laughable at best, because there are plenty of scholars, academics, and all around decent human beings that see the value in the hunting and preservation of these animals. 3) this hunt is a lottery style draw hunt, where you are required to take a doe before harvesting a buck. its not a trophy hunt in any stretch of the imagination. the list could go on and on.
If you were to sit and have a meaningful conversation with anyone who upholds the standards of a real "sportsman" you would quickly understand that hunting is not the practice of killing for the sake of taking a creatures life; Many hunters, practicing making ethical shots (especially for those who use archery equipment) is a standard they choose to hold themselves to because anyone who loves the sport also respects these animals enough not to leave them lying paralyzed somewhere in the woods. I honestly do not see why this is an issue in the first place, i only hope Diane Dixon would do some research before continuing with this crusade of hers. a wise man once said "At least ignorance can be reduced through education. Stupidity is permanent!" I genuinely hope peoples outlooks are based on ignorance.
