Hunting In Israel

Perhaps just out of ignorance, but I didn't realize there were hunting opportunities in Israel.  Apparently, however, there is a bill pending in Israel that would essentially eliminate all hunting there.

It is funny to see where you

It is funny to see where you can find hunting.  I guess critters will live in all sorts of places, and Israel is no exception.  I imagine that there are so many other things going on over there, that you rarely hear about things like this, as they would be trivial to most.  Heck, I never used to hear about hunting in Russia.  All we ever heard about was stuff associated with the cold war.  Then, when the wall came down and The USSR split apart, here come the stories.  The big brown bears, ibex, etc.  Seems to be almost as good as the US with some of their big game, but we didn't know till the information pipeline started to flow.

I just wonder if Hamas is

I just wonder if Hamas is edible?

I know it's a pesty varmint, and needs to be controlled.

Hunting in Israel

I had an online conversation with a friend that lives in Israel. He told me that according to Jewish Law hunting is considered inhumane and cruel, as well as the animal not being killed in a Kosher manner. That may be one reason why hunters don't flock to Israel, and we don't hear much about it.

He has a slightly different opinion, but believes that death by bullet, to an animal, is quick. While it may very well be that, sometimes it's not, as we know. I gave him my rationale for hunting and he accepted that, and even understood it, to a degree, but has no desire to do the same.
