Why do hunters hunt? Besides food.
 
I really want to get into hunting by myself now. ive been with my uncle a few times when i was a young teen i live in arizona in a city there really isnt a need for me to hunt for my food because i can just buy it at the store my mother is very much against hunting or killing any animals she asked me why do you like hunting? Do you like hurting animals? Do you like destroying animal families? And i didnt want to talk much about it cuz i cant back up my own words. i enjoy hunting to get away from the city to be with nature to see the beauty and adventure but when my mom talks about i go to hurt animals and kill inocent animals it turns me off because i too love animals and i dont want to hurt any animals unless im gonna eat it ;) but animals that you cant eat like coyotes mountain lion i wouldnt shoot or hunt what for? Are they valuable? Can you eat it? Why do hunters hunt id like more like minded ppl to tell me why they go hunting so i dont feel bad going on my hunting trips

I enjoy being outdoors. It's peaceful, quite, and just a damn place to take a nap p.
The animals are all part of the system. They to kill and coyotes carry disease. So don't worry about leaving them behind same thing for a lot of others like armadillo, raccoon, opossum, .
Game birds like dove, goose and pheasant are real tasty treats as is hog and Java Lina, elk, moose, and deer. Why pay for food when god has offered it for the taking right? I will leave it at
that and leave u with this picture that will probably piss ur mom off.

Your mom must get her meat from the meat tree that grows out behind the grocery store.:rolleyes:

I hunt for all of the above. Peace, solitude, communing with the highest power, adventure, meat etc.

I hear tell cougar is damn tasty, 'yotes fetch decent prices for their hides as do coons.

I hunt because we are meant to. It's a simple biological fact animals with eyes on the front of their heads are predators. I also enjoy fresh meat, the connection to nature, the hunt itself, leather and fur, bone tools, skulls and the one that will upset people..I enjoy killing.

Hunting pleasure........
 
If you are out hunting just to kill things and not for food you need help. May I suggest a gun club and you can kill all the targets without regrets. And when it comes to hunting a nusance animal or bird, make sure you are within the law and none suffer long agonizing deaths...

It gets me out of the damn city and back out into a place without concrete and actually has a fresh smell

Willshoum is trippen! You cant just go out and shoot animals theres laws fines and penalties! You can go to jail or prison for shooting animals without tags. Thats why us hunters respect nature we are predators designed to hunt and killer instincts but we also respect the law and know right from wrong.
