There are many people that hunt for sport and food, and many who don't. I was wondering where the people of Mylot stand on this issue. Should people be allowed to hunt for food? or for sport? and why. I personaly do not hunt, guns are to loud for me, but I support hunting as long as it is for food.

They can hunt for the sport as long as they use what they hunt for food.My son has been nagging me to go hunting for the last 3 years i will not let him even if he does want to use it for food

Do you feel that he is to young, or do you not want wild game as food?

I don't think people should hunt at all. Being a vegetarian, though, I might have a bias here. I think we have plenty of resources available to us and hunting, even for "making our own food", is kind of an outdated theory. I wouldn't be opposed to people who do it sparingly to actually feed their families (such as certain native american tribes did way back when!) but that was out of necessity rather than boredom or the "macho" persona that usually comes with hunting. I think it's much easier to go to the store and pick up some Veal - or what-have-you, and without the hassle too. And without the cruelty involved in killing your own food! We aren't in the stone age any more. Hopefully I didn't offend you. lol, but that's where I stand.

no offense taken, I would like to hear views other than my own.

I can say I've done both. As for your question, I have mixed feelings. Most states have certain hunting seasons for deer, pheasant, even for fishing. I think that if it were open year around then there would be problems with repopulation. Wiping out the animal entirely; however, there are other times that we are so over run by deer that black tounge disease sets in and kills off so many more than any group of hunters can do. So, back on track. When we hunt as per season, we do clean all that we get. There are hunters around here that only stuff and mount the heads, but they also know that any butcher or meat processor will take the meat off their hands. It's very popular around here.

It is popular here also. Here you can donate the meat, if you do not want it, to the food banks. All you have to do is pay a minimal processing fee.

I think that is a neat thing; donating the meat you get to food banks. Deer meat as an example is vary ehalthy meat, low in fat and I've ehard its quite tasty. Everyone needs protien. Now that's a good idea. And within the law and without over thinning I agree that hunting in season is a logical healthy thing to do to manage the wild game species here in the US.

I have never hunted, be it for sport or food. I am not a non-veg person. In fact none of my family member eat fleshes. So, I didn't need to hunt for food. i don't like shooting so, there is no chance that I can even take rifle for hunting. So, my stand is clear. I don't hunt and don't want people to hunt.
