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 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.

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.

The set up is for two people when the crops are usually off and the only cover left is...
