this reads like a KKK brochure about MLK. they completely ignore the fact that hunting, especially in africa, does more to maintain species than anything else. sure it is in our own self interest to maintain the animals and habitat for them for huntign purposes. it works very well. ,)
The HSUS is a complete joke and I'd expect nothing less than this pack of lies in their latest hunter smear campaign.
They use the term SCI, terms like "canned hunt" and something we all enjoy doing (hunting) as an extremist activity that is cruel and inhumane. All while sitting at home wearing leather, eating beef and chicken that are raised/killed in ways that are not even close to the life that the animals we hunt live or die.
Animals (with the exception of domestic cats/dogs) are on the BOTTOM of the food chain-they're fair game for whatever is at the top of that chain, which would be all of us. That's the way it's always been and always will be-I doubt the HSUS or PETA will ever come to grips with that concept though.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
