Anti-Hunting Groups - Misguided?

In reading the posts about bozo the bear, i began thinking about anti-hunting groups and their mission to stop hunting.  I thought about how minimal hunting is compared to the suffering incurred by domestic animals that are neglected, abandoned and abused.  Many cities are overun by feral cats and packs of dogs.

Wouldn't it be a better use of resources to aid these animals and stop their suffering?  Animal shelters kill animals everyday for lack of funding, wouldn't the time, energy and money that goes into trying to stop hunting be better used going to these shelters?

Boils down to this

Those groups have an inherent hostility and hatred for hunting to begin with.  It doesn't matter to them that PETA supports some shelters that kill out of convenience.  They are simply blinded by their hostility towards hunters.  That's all there is to it.

These people see no other

These people see no other view but their own.  they cannot be reasoned with.  As with the case with Bearlover, I mentioned that Religion and Science, whichever you believe in, both support humans eating meat.  It is senseless to argue against.  No matter the fact that we, as hunters, know 100 times more than they do about nature, they still think they know best.

Misguided is a nice way of puting it !!!

It astonished me to hear thier perception of things.  All I want to comment on is I wished the nature police would tell both side of the hunters vs animals argument.  I am a big fan of conservation and animal rights. As with most hunters I volunteer time and donate loads of money to animal conservation programs. I do believe that hunters created most conversation programs, donate more time and money than the nature drama queens like to take credit for. We actually do with action what they claim to do in words. Minus of course all their litigation and protests against somethings they rarely know anything about. I would actually keep the game animals over the nature queens if given a choice. Check your sources do your home work and stop believing everything you hear from the “sky is falling propaganda machine”. Global warming does not exist, aliens aren't taking over and it is ok to say the Pledge of Allegiance in school because this is America and that is what our foundation was built upon. I got just the idea for these save the world nature queens. Load up an take a walk with my and my boys for a few days in these remote Afghan mountains and we will stop and talk to the local villagers and they will be more than happy to hear your great and wonderful ideas on how to save the world. I can go on and on about these clowns all day long but like most of you have stated already its pointless cause they have thier perception of reallity.  It is so very sad. Use your time an energy to save a child living in a shelter or help a homeless vet who protected your right to be a drama queen.  I send a handshake to all of you flag waving, gun carring, patriotic, hunters and rednecks.  GO AMERICA

Read the comments regarding the bear taken in PA posted by bearlover and you'll get an insight into the mind of an "animal lover."  He truly believes that an animal is equal to a human on all levels so in his mind, helping an animal is the same as helping a child or a veteran.  As I respondeed to him in that thread animals are not equal to humans.

I couldn't agree more!!!

I just wonder how long it's going to be before modern day American society finally snaps out of it and wakes up from the hazy dreamy propaganda we've been force fed for too long and realizes the truth!!!  It will probably be too late by then. 

Thank you and your guys/gals for your service to our country and for freedom Thumbs up

I don't put all the wolf

I don't put all the wolf worshipers rank & file in the same boat most of them have just been brainwashed by their leadership. The ones who are putting up the money are the ones with the agenda, they are the ones who want consumptive use of fish & wildlife ended. The one like BL are just tools for the ones on top to meet their end. Just my opinion but I think the ones like bearlover are clueless and are being used. That said when it come to feeding my family I do not have an ounce of sympathy for them, my family comes first and if they get in my way to bad.

Disturbing realities

Most of these folks aren't so much misguided as they simply do not want to recognize that their own origins are that of hunter/gatherers. They simply wish to distance themselves from the messy, bloody reality of their own ancestors. Far better to stick their heads in the sand, ignore the facts while placing yourself psycholigicaly on a pedestal far above the rest of the animal kingdom. As a species man is only about 40,000 years "out of the jungle". This is simply more than these folks are willing to recognize about themselves and therefore they do all they can to distance themselves from this unpleasant notion. Recognizing and embracing ones "primal-self" can be both healthy and fun but for some it's not easy. It's an unpleasant reminder that we are all both human, and mortal.

you got it

You hit the nail square on the head bunnyslayer.  I think it really subconciously boil down to that.  From my experience in discussions with liberal left winged animal rights activists and environmentalists it appears that there is a very strong level of wanting to distance themselves from the idea that we are human and have had to do some real human things in the past to survive and thrive as a species.  I have found most of these people to be very conflicted individuals deep down inside, as if they are still trying to find themselves.  They just aren't true to themselves.  You can immediatly detect it with their political correctness and how easy they are to shock just when speaking naturally.  Many of them were thrown out of the house in their teens and seem like they are still trying to find a cause to be a part of.  I find most hunters to be much more true to themselves, real, and down to Earth people.

You are correct WH

It's much easier for these people to talk about saving the environment and animals while doing everything possible to distance themselves from both.
