Actually, a bow and rifle all killon the first shot. My friend's dad dropped a huge moose in BC using a bow. One shot, and the moose didn't get farther than 150 yds.
Nope, it's called fair chase. it's not like we can shoot from a mile away. You need to get in as close as 100 yds to get a shot on an animal. Plus, they have their own advantages.

Yes, if you ever go hunting you will definetly see that it's not just walk ten feet in the woods, shoot, and then leave.

Was that video by any chance from PETA? You shouldn't trust them at all...

They have been known to kill animals themselves...

I definatly don't trust PETA. In my opinion they are nothing but a bunch of hippies who are willing to harm people just to save farm animals.

In fact there are many animal rights groups who do not like PETA.

I know that the point of hunting is just to kill an animal to eat it but fair means equal...as in a "fair fight". Of animals are usually either faster or stronger or have bigger claws but a gun doesn't even the odds...if you where in a fair fight with a 250 pound boxer guy and you where built like Bill Gates would a gun make it a fair fight?

A knife would be more fair because a knife would be an equal to a claw or a bite.

A gun or bow makes it fair because of the animals lightning reflexes, quick speed, overwhelming weight, sharp eyes, acute hearing, acute smell, and the difficulty of the terrain.

it's not like every hunter kills a trophy buck. Most hunters are unsuccesful.

It is going to take more than soy products to turn a species of carnivores away from flesh.

How is a hunting rifle unfair?


I just prefer a more primative weapon
i have nothing against anyone useing
one.

I dont mean unfair to the animal. That
line was not meant to be taken siriously.

It would depend on the particular animal of course but if I may continue the compairson between a human and a human...If you where going to hunt down and kill Chuck Norris or Bruce Lee or somebody whi is faster, faster, stronger, etc. a gun wouldn't even the odds. Body protection, a knife, or a bat would even the odds more because it would give both parties the edge...a gun is a one sided fight.

But in the sport of hunting I don't think its part of the rules to be fair.

Yes it is, and we make it as fair as possible by giving out deer tags and such. Fair Chase.

*sigh* Don't make me take out the Chuck Norris jokes.

And why is everyone saying "fair" and stuff? Since when is nature fair. It seems pretty unfair when a hawk takes a rabbit, doesn't it? But is morals going to stop a predator? The only real advantage we have other them is weapons. And it's not like Bambi just walks up to a hunter and everyone "ohhs" and "awws" and then  the hunter just kills it.
