Your thoughts on Hunting

Coyotes don't kill pets. They hunt them.
You really think it's that hard for a coyote to kill some little foo foo house dog that is let out in the middle of the night to relieve itself?? " just saying" you think a yote has to plan some elaborate stalk to hunt and kill that poor little house pet while it is taking a dump in it's front yard.
I understand what your saying about encroaching ,same thing to an extent is happening around here with all the housing developments. But they are not running out of their food source because of hunting. Their food source isn't being killed off by hunters but drove away and killed off because of surburban development. There would be alot less starved and emaciated cougars if they would legalize Mt. Lion hunting.
The only predator that Mt. Lions have is man himself when you don't allow hunting of these animals , their numbers go unchecked couple that with all the encroachment and it would not matter their natural territory would not even be able to sustain all the cougars food requirements.
Hence the attacks on easier targets.

If you want to make hunting a sport, the rule should be that you can kill anything in the game preserve; other hunters included. Because then the hunter can't just stalk a deer, he's got to constantly be on the lookout for other hunters, move stealthily, quietly and invisibly. The thrill of the kill tempered with a constant sense of fear for your life. A pounding sense of paranoia that at any moment you could be in someone's crosshairs, and that you can't linger anywhere too long (much less in a camouflaged stand in a tree with a six pack of PBR). That's a fuggin' sport right there.
Plus it would cull the herd of rednecks in this country a little

About as hard as shooting a deer stopping to nibble on something from 50 ft away with a projectile that travels much faster than they can run.

there's a right to hunt? since when?
Falls in with the rights to: Have a good paying job, have a house, have free healthcare....

Understand there exists a difference in "Sport" and "trophy" hunting.
One is just killing things, the other is killing things that have reached a certain age/standard.

As far as what I feel about it, I don't support just wholesale slaughter. You eat what you kill, or you take the time to prepare it for someone that would appreciate eating what you kill. When I was in my teens, we'd kill dozens and dozens of dove (4-5 guys) and we'd get the breasts out of them and drop them off and this poor dude that lived near us. Deer meat too. My father would make tons of deer jerky and give it away.
I've kinda carried that attitude to fishing. If I'm not going to eat or prepare it to be eaten, I don't keep it. I'm pretty much a catch and release 95% of the time.

The idea of sitting at your computer and blasting away at animals remotely is interesting

One of the biggest reasons to support hunting of Deer in NC is to keep the population under control. They have no natural predators that I can think of and without a hunting season they would die from starvation/disease/cars.
What about hunting black bears? Or moose?

Also, they once made a movie about g5jamz's hunting adventures...
Virtually yes...big MW2 fan and most other ww2 FPS fan.
I'd rather shoot a human than most other animals. Virtually of course.

Of course we joke about hunters now but when the end times come and there's nothing left but stocked property with pre-manufactured tree stands and deer bait and the only thing we have left to hunt with is expensive shotguns with plentiful ammo, we’ll be begging these guys for food.

Especially if they are black homeless people...
Pfft...homeless people don't have xboxes or a Live account.
