Are you sorry for the desire to hunt the animal or that you agreed with FMJ?

Hunting isn't a cruel activity unless it is done poorly and it serves a real purpose, food, clothing, etc. It becomes cruel if you are hurting or harming the animal simply for your own amusement.

I understand if any animal is damaging personal property using some non-lethal force to get the animal to leave (such as in your garden eating or raccoons spreading your trash and eating and throwing rocks or pellet guns). I am a hunter, but I don't find it ethical to hunt and kill any animal if you are not using it. Eat the meat, use the hide, but don't kill animals just for the h3!! of it.

Let me say. I'm not a "tree hugger" or anything like that but I respect animals. If that deer had been some nuisance there are ways to get it to leave but to hit a golf ball at the deer was just unnecessary and was done just for the h3!! of it.

That was my point. No it didn't appear to hurt the deer, but what if somebody hit golf balls at you for no reason other than just for fun.

So, i can't hunt because i don't eat meat? What about fishing; are you anti- on the catch and release fly-fishing too?

I will have to disagree with you on that.

First off. No. I didn't mean it like "don't hunt if you don't eat meat". More along the lines of people that go kill a deer and cut the antlers off to use them for something and the meat is left to ruin. I know people that hunt because they enjoy it and they don't eat the meat. They carry meat to some homeless shelters or something similar. They use the antlers for knifes and such then they use the fur to make leather and stuff. Even if you don't eat meat it can benefit someone when you kill one. If you are using the skin or antlers fine but shouldn't the meat be used somewhere and not just thrown off the side of the road or left in the woods?

Onto your fishing comment. If you read, I said "kill something". Catch and release fishing isn't killing it. I see nothing wrong with that either.

I would prefer that a nonhungry hunter pass their kill off to someone in need/want of the meat & other useful parts, but even if left where it falls, something will eat that meat, four legs, six legs, or two legs.

I think i understand your statement, and i want you to understand mine: It isn't up to you or to me what somebody does with their kill; it is up to them. Anything more is unneeded regulation or forcing of our opinions/beliefs on others who may not share them. You and I are both free to our own preferences.

A little mean and stupid but as far as cruelty? It was obvious the guy did not mean to hurt the deer with that Weenie Swing he demonstrated. More of shoo-wing the deer off the fairway. He certainly did not hurt the deer. It is very obvious that the deer is very familiar with people. Probably there as a fawn. The guy even took a practice swing and the deer still stood and took a few steps toward the golfer. Obviously startled the deer and did not hurt him at all.
