Hunting - ... Instead of buying beef at a store which came from a slaughter house, you can pay for a hunting license and a game tag, and go harvest a deer. That deer will put food on your table and keep the game population managed. Humans might not find benefit to the hide nowadays, but that is no reason not to hunt. Hunting is still beneficial to the animals and yourself. Controlling game population is another benefit to hunting. Many factors are involved when it comes down to it. Most animals need a specific habitat to live in....   [tags: Wildlife, Varmint, hunting]

Bow Hunting for Whitetail Deer - Bow hunting for whitetail deer is both a challenge and a passionate sport for me. One challenge comes when you want to hunt whitetails and cannot find a place to hunt. Every hunter has been in this position at one time or another, for whatever reason. The good news is there are places to hunt locally, if you have the patience and knowledge to do so. The areas that I want to talk about are state-owned game areas. These public hunting areas can be crowded, over hunted, and in effect can produce some pretty smart whitetails....   [tags: Hunting]

The Ethics of Sport Hunting - Aldo Leopold pioneered “land ethics” in the first half of the 20th century. Inspired by Leopold, his fellow professor at the University of Wisconsin, Van Rensselaer Potter, coined the term “bioethics” in the second half of the 20th century (1970). Both terms have a powerful social and personal component. Both terms connote an integration of values and the environment. So, too, do “hunt ethics,” an integration of values and an action based upon biology and the ‘land.’ The hunter has affection and awe for all of nature’s creations, perhaps more so than any other human observer, for the hunter must read the most subtle signs of his quarry, its habitat and its behavior, to be successful....   [tags: Hunting] 2300 words

The Many Benefits of Hunting - When a Minnesota dentist killed a prized African lion named "Cecil" he received an onslaught of criticism and reignited the debate concerning hunting.

Fox Hunting: Time to Stop the Slaughter - Fox hunting and fox hunting for sport is currently being argued widely. In my opinion I feel that “living in a free country” does not mean having the right to be cruel or spiteful to anyone or anything. Although many throughout the world may disagree with my opinion, I think that fox hunting should only be done in good deed such as helping farmers who can’t afford to pay for a knacker. Another example that suggests fox hunting is a bad sport as they are doing it for their own pleasure and is not at all helping others, as the majority of people when asked said that they are totally against fox hunting and that huntsmen are mostly: “These huntsmen are always Snooty, Rich and aristocratic.” As Richard Sidaway states: “If ‘country sports’ really are a sport, how come the same side always wins?” Many people may argue that they are hunting to help the farmers keep predators away from their cattle but in my point of view they are doing it for “pleasure” as many of them call it but I feel that farmers should make more of an effort to secure their cattle and animals....   [tags: Essays on Fox Hunting] 722 words
