    If the Lib-tards got their wish, and all guns were confiscated, How long would it be before we would be over-run by wildlife....? Im not a hunter, but get to hang out with lots of them at the shop. There are over 150,000 deer taken every year in Ohio alone, In Texas over 700,000 Feral Hogs every year. Not to mention all the squirrel, rabbits,turkeys, etc. What do you think.......how many years would it be before the animals take over....

    Good Question.
    Would not be a problem here in my area.
    But if things really go to hell,
    what about all the dogs that would be homeless, unfed strays,
    They would find something to eat.

    Funny, was thinking about that yesterday after a 'conversation' with someone who hates hunting, and has zero practical knowledge of it...

    All animals combined, I'd say it'll take one season/year, as long as it takes a baby...(you pick the animal)...to start eating.

    Population would explode and they'd eat themselves right out of a habitat real quick. Some would starve or die from disease while others search for a food source.

    Another question would be how many humans would go hungry if hunting was outlawed? I know for a fact that lots of people still live and survive off of the land...

    Thanks to wildlife management, we are now seeing more game as never before.

    Even the Florida bears are getting closer to Gello!

    As game animals number increased so would predators. Tens of thousands of years ago humans didn't manage game and they did just fine.

    Back in the 90's the county in Ky I lived in then pretty much stopped deer hunting because of population they said but many said it was p-art of an agenda..Who knows. Anyway, within a season deer overrun the county to the point they where starving. You could see them from the roads with ribs sticking out and taking risks they usually never would to get food. With not enough predators to keep populations in check the population of deer exploded in just one season.

    Not a bad point.

    I have a feeling we'd see a lot more bow hunters.

    Yea, I can see it now...."Deer over-run Union Station, Nation in jeopardy, more at 11."

    The proposition is rather goofy. Unlike humans, when animals overpopulate, they thin by hunger and/or disease.

    So, we're being disarmed, and B.O. is setting up all these

    new immigration reforms, while shredding the constitution,

    so we can be overrun by Bambi.


    ah, HOKAY...

    So what most of you are saying....? Is there would be an explosion in the animal population the first few years. Then they would self regulate, and their numbers would return to normal..?

    I have heard some of the guys in the shop talk about hunting Feral Hogs in Texas with an AR, from a helicopter...Anybody know if that really happens...?

    Iv'e never been much intrested in hunting, but that would be a blast...sign me up..I bet it would be expensive. I hang out with the Careflight guys at the hospital sometimes. You wouldnt believe what it costs to keep a chopper ready to go, and in the air $$$$$$$

    I've heard like $10,000 for an hour flight time, depending on the chopper.

    Would definitely be a blast though.

    Here where I live in CA hunting is not popular. Not many animals are taken as a result. Not sure what the statistics say, but the take is low. Lots of deer out there, as far as pigs the CA DFG charges $23 for one pig tag. Lots of pigs out there. The deer around here are thick as fleas, and they go right down into town looking for forage. there is no plant that will escape their appetite anymore. there used to be "deer resistant" plants, but not anymore.

    I imagine that if all firearms hunting were to come to an end, we would see a significant rise in the populations which would result in more disease and starvation. The thing that frightens me is the possible rise in diseases that can be transmitted to humans, such as Lyme disease and Chronic Wasting Disease. There has been a "new" disease in the Middle East that has been attributed to camels (specifically one-hump dromedaries) that is transmitting to humans. This stuff could get serious.

    Its funny to watch them try and run on pavement. They slip and slide all over. If one breaks its leg I figure its fair game! Drag into the garage and string it up!
