It's not a lack of interest. It's a lack of knowledge and lack of understanding of the overly complex laws involved. First and foremost, my dad was not a hunter so I never learned and now that I'm an adult it's more difficult than it seems to learn how. I mean I can read up on how to actually kill the animal effectively but then I'd be at a loss, somehow I don't think I would be able to harvest the meat effectively from the animal and I think that people who hunt and waste the meat should be banned from hunting. That might be an overly broad statement but I'm just in general stating that I don't think hunting is just about killing an animal, pests or other animals that harm crops/business are not included. Secondly is that I don't know how to legally hunt. I know I need a license but beyond that I don't know the specific laws or areas I can hunt. I'm scared that I would do something that is not unsafe but illegal and end up getting a huge fine or jail time for something stupid. I posted this after reading the thread about would you hunt if you had to pay. I didn't want to derail that thread but thought this was another interesting point of view on a slightly different topic.
