Do you think shooting animals for trophies or sport should be banned. If you think no, would you go hand to hand combat with the animal you are using a weapon to kill, just give the animal back the advantage you take away?

most animals come equipped with a set of weapons from nature:p the only advantage humans have are mind power and thats what we use to gain an upper hand through technology. personally i think game hunting is a long running tradition but care should be taken so that extinction doesnt become a possiblity. but i think its really narrow minded of you to say that you should fight them one on one with the advantage back. they already have advantages and some animals like cougars and foxes wouldnt hesitate to kill young children while humans do actually think things over before they do them. so yeah think about it :)

Most game hunters travelle in to the natural environment to kill an animal unawear and the only thing they think is 1 head or heart 2 brag factor. cavemen had no worries but I suppose they killed out of necessity not for fun and our 'technologies' have advanced us right in to the natural habitats of foxes and cougars. so you see their natural instinct like all animals including us is survival of the fittest so as you can now see I am not narrow minded I have just taken all the factors in to consideration. And you should be watching your children not letting them run around unsupervised if you know that there is cougars and foxes in your area .
