How many people have hunted game that is fenced?

Whatever man your from america Im from canada We obviously dont think even close to the same. We dont have to agree on anything for that matter you dont have to see me I dont have to see you, hell we dont even have to talk on here ,so you keep thinkin the way you want like you already pointed out you will , just like I will keep thinking the same way I have and will keep thinking for the rest of my life. I think and always will think that hunting is a heritage and not a sport and my kids will grow up learning that too so you pass your message on too your kids and have fun with that. Dont forget to make sure you tell your kids hunting is a sport not a way of life or heritage.

I also understand that there are plenty of hunters out there who are just as concerned (sometimes more) with meat and being able to say that whatever they did or not kill was under "fair"chase conditions. That's not me, but to those that feel that way, that's great, to each his own.

I'm a lot more concerned about defeating those who'd like to see a sport we all enjoy done away with, rather than going after the guys who only hunt "fair" chase.

......hunting is not a sport unless you would like to hand out guns to the deer as well! that would be interesting !!

Differing opinions I can tolerate and even enjoy and learn from, but ignorance just irritates me.

Hunting is a sport - plain and simple. For some, it can be a way of life and for even fewer, a heritage.

Now, you may define hunting differently for you, but let's look at the dictionary as a 3rd party independent source for how to define hunting.

sport /spɔrt, spoʊrt/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[spawrt, spohrt] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun 1. an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc.

Yep, hunting is right in there in the definition of sport. Also, recall shows like the American Sportsman, or how about "sporting" dogs. Hunting is a sport, but like any sport, whether football or soccer it can become more for an individual. For some, the sport of football is a way of life. Their love of the sport is even a heritage, inheriting their fanatical love for it from their parents.

As for saying it is a heritage, that may be for some, but not all. Why? A heritage is something you inherit, so someone who comes from a family that did not hunt and decidded to do it on their own, did not inherit and therefore for that person, hunting is not a "heritage."

I am very passionate about hunting, but it is not a way of life for me. I work in an office, golf, read, and do other things besides hunting. I can't say it is a way of life for me. Does that diminish my passion for hunting or make me less of a hunter? I don't think so.

....I'll conceed that one cvc although it does say of a competive nature ..unless the mean a deer running for it's life is is a form of competition ....hunting originated as a form of food gathering and some people still see it as that today not all people will agree it's strictly a sport I know very few inuit that play golf !

Actually you are all correct. Hunting was at first defined as a nessessity for food gathering for families. Then came the kings cordining off all the land and outlawing hunting by the "pesants" and so came along "sport hunting" because the kings and dukes and such had no real need to hunt.

There. Argument solved with a draw HAPPY NOW?
