Well.......If I'm gonna eat it I kinda prefer that it is dead TalonS , just my personal preference mind you  whistling2.gif


TalonS.....you yourself admit that you eat fish and chicken, these were once alive as well, just because somebody else has done the work of killing them on your behalf does not change that fact.

Bear Hunting ??????? Where the heck did that come from ??????

I think Talon if you actually read the previous posts you will find that neither myself nor  Scar are defending any type of sport which practices killing animals for the sheer hell of it ..there is no defence for this.   You cannot compare shooting a bird which has been specifically reared for the dinner table to shooting a bear just so you can say you have.

Can't make out hte pics too well Talon but I think the first one is Pheasants ?.....considering that there are 6 people there I would say no problem.....especially if they have freezers  wink2.gif

The second pic.....pigeons ????? In which case I would suspect that they have been culled as a pest species rather than for food.

Hardly a cull when its from a site called

http://www.countrysports.co.uk 's gallery from past shootings.

As well as pheasant they offer a veriety of targets: deer, Grouse, Partridge, Duck, Geese,  Hare, Rabbit, Woodcock,  Mountain Hare, Red Stag, Roe Buck, Fallow, Red Hind. And trips to Poland to shoot Wild Boar & deer.  huh.gif

And its organisations like these which set up the hunts you go to and support, and the profits they make allow them set up further hunts to kill all of the above... I doubt the shooters are eating the boar  crying.gif

Actually, the shoots I attend are set up by a variety of people usually the landowner, never have I been to a shoot which has been organised by an organisation.  

I have already stated that I do NOT hunt for fun !!!!!! and as such do not support organisations such as this one that promote killing animals for trophy........but I freely admit to having eaten every animal on that list ....... including wild boar which after all is no different to a domestic pig IMO.

Perhaps there are certain differences in appearance .I grant you that  thumbsup.gif

But is there any ETHICAL difference between eating boar and pig ??
