Finnfighter, if you live to old age the chances are fairly good that you'll die painfully of cancer or a heart attack. It would be merciful if I killed you now. Just turn around, you won't feel a thing.

Jonwell, I am not an animal. I know that I'll die one day. Animal doesn't. He wont miss long walks on the beach, worry about his grandchildren, in a sense..hmmmm..hes an ANIMAL...Remember? Just as I finish writing that you give human like qualities to animals (which is stupid), you aquaint killing a vapiti with killing a finnish sociology student. Smart. Very smart. Why dont you throw god in it as well... Besides, were I to have cancer, I'd prefer an arrow to dying for a month.... And my point was, that animals suffer greater pain in nature than they do when hunted. THATS all I care about. I dont approve of unnecessary, long lasting torment. Like the one that animals suffer before they give their skin for your shoes, belts and wallets. Stopped wearing them too...?:)

Man has dominion over the animals. Doesnt make torture or cruelty acceptable. But the bleeding hearts who piss and moan on every hunting thread do so not out of genuine care for the animals but because it makes them feel good/better than other people.

Well, I have to say that I agree, atleast on part. Here in Scandinavia its VERY VERY rare that someone doesnt eat his kill, or sell it to a restaurant (yeah, even normal weekend hunters)..but to each his own..

I am by no means a bleeding heart (despite my work on the "pics of white looters" thread a few weeks back. See http://mma.tv/TUF/index.cfm?ac=ListMessages&PID=1&TID=657884&FID=2).

But intentionally stalking and killing an innocent creature that has never caused you a moment's trouble for no reason other than the thrill or sport of it is stupid, senseless, and fucking wasteful to me.

Yeah, and the animals that those mean lions kill have never caused those things a moments trouble. I guess you should talk about this with saamis from Lappland.In the end they are better equipped then a drunken student to talk about killing animals for a living.. You could tell them your views on how unethical they are and they...well...they have a tendency to drink and play with large knives..;) btw..I checked out your link.IMPRESSIVE. Somebody was on top of their game...lol..

I do believe those animals the mean lions kill are devoured shortly thereafter as source of life sustaining protein, etc. 

Shortly after killing that elk, I imagine the only thing the douchebag in that pic devoured was a Cialis.

Thanks for the props re: the link.  :)

LOL@You Idiots! Saying "It was a thing of beauty SHAME ON YOU for shooting it!" might get you laid in English class, a hippy concert, or coffee shop. But don't worry you fools, it does nothing for you on the OG!

I'm not going to say it was morally wrong to kill it, just a matter of bad taste, really.

An elk of that size and age probably would make for tougher, less tasty meat, I don't really care for Elk anyway, though I've only had it once. That's why I don't shoot Deer that I can tell are that old, they don't taste as good and I figure if the old bastard made it that long, through all the winters, fights, predators and peckerheads trying to blast him, then who am I to finish him off? Imagine the bellow that huge thing would make, I'd love to see something like that in the wild.

HELWIG, come on bro. You seem to have a decent amount of knowledge about animals per other threads we have spoke on and I hear what you are saying but "I" do personally care for ALL animals. I however do not make it to every thread about hunting. Most often I wont even click on them because I know what lies ahead.

"hunters have no etiquette; thats why they hunt"

"I seriously do not understand the concept of killing something for sport"

difference between hunting for sport and hunting for food. i think to myself how easy it is for people to hide behind the supermarkets and judge hunting, but i think i would rather hunt for my meat. there seems to be a bit more honor in it, i dunno, maybe i am wrong.

to hunt for sport, and to kill something that grand is pathetic, i dont care what that guy did in the name of conservation.

true.

and if this guy was going to eat it, he couldve killed a lesser elk and that that bad motherfucker keep on trucking.

for a bunch of so called tough guy fighters,you guys boggle my mind.I call your attitude the pussification of america. Man survived for thousands of years off of the land and its animals.In my opinion the world may someday go to shit and these real world skills will again become necessary.While i am hunting to feed my family you all will be crying for the goverment to save your ass.good luck with that

"the world may someday go to shit and these real world skills will again become necessary"

couldnt agree with you more, although i think for the most part posters on this thread are upset about the kill for sport, and for me i am even more upset that a badass like that was killed for sport. it just seems dishonorable. if he kills his own food, he couldve killed something else and left that beauty alone.

i have stalked many elk.It is far more difficult than you realize.It takes real skills to get with in bow range of an animal like that.I can just about guarantee you that not 2 people on this whole site are capable of doing this.Like it or not, at least give credit for the time and effort required. I fight and I hunt .I would say that bow hunting big game successfully,would be more difficult by far, than winning a fight in a local show

some of you guys are pussies. If you are not a vegitaiarian , STFU. And try to get close enough to an animal in the wild to shot it with a bow and arrow.It aint that easy.
