For example, wolves are a type of animals that are becoming more and more extinct because we humans keep on killing them. Although hunting helps maintain a natural balance between humans and wildlife animals as stated, it can also lead to extinction if it gets out of hand and no one controls it. By hunting, we lose tons of money because

Yet, there are those who do hunt for food, in remote areas it would be easier to hunt game than to drive 20 or 30 miles into the local town for hamburger. Perhaps for them there is a justification to hunt. As Peter Singer writes, “Eskimos living in an environment where they must kill animals for food or starve might be justified in claiming that their interest in surviving overrides that of the animals they kill.”(Singer) Nevertheless, that still does not answer the question is it still ethical to hunt and kill an animal for food? However, there are many who would say that hunting an animal for food is justified because it helps to keep the herds by culling and protects them from over population that could lead to starvation, disease, or predation. Culling is a naturalistic fallacy based on a false premise that we are saving the animal from a terrible long drawn out death, which is no... ... middle of paper ... ...mal but about caring about the human’s response to it.

Rabecah Porter Ms.Davis English IV - Period 3 April 6, 2014 Hunting So we all know what hunting basically is, killing animals for food right? Wrong, some people kill them for fun instead of food. But let’s be honest, is hunting for fun and not putting the animal to use, for fun really necessary? If you’re hunting for food, not just to better your own reputation.

Hunting has a history that has changed dramatically, and will always be changing. Hunting has been a part of life since the First Era. Whenever men would go hunting during this time the role of women would be to clean and prepare the meat that was hunted. During this Era hunting was not a sport the game was only hunted for the meat, pelt, and the bones. When tribes would hunt for big game the one warrior that killed the game would be considered the bravest out of all in the tribe.
“Does recreational hunting have a role in conservation?” by Associate Professor Graham Hall and, “Can hunting endangered animals save the species?” by Lara Logan, help me prove that it’s not all these things some believe it to be. I personally believe the number one reason people are afraid of hunters hunting is that they believe that animal may go instinct, but what many people don’t know is that hunting helps the animal species population; and not just the one they are hunting, it helps all species in that ecosystem in some way.

The Deer’s were abundant, in areas were forest fires, lightening fires and other catastrophes had started to destroy parts of the forest canopy. Natural enemies of the predators of the deer like the cougars, wolves, coyotes also played a big part in regulating the population and keeping the herds relatively balanced withe habitat. As the south grew, The farmers began the grow crops, and then the war started, the need for cotton began the escalate, so land became a dire need, so the deer habitat once again was threaten, with no food to eat the nutrition stopped the production of the population, so the declining the herds once again was falling. Men hunting deer for meat was still a necessity for most families for survival was still prevalent.
