whatever, for the sake of personal consumption I guess it's the same as having a slaughter house do it. Actually, it's probably a lot better knowing exactly what you're eating as opposed to all the crap that's put in our food. However, you can save the B.S. about having to hunt to save money. Licensed hunters spend $1.8 billion on hunting-related equipment in the U.S. and it's estimated that after license fees, equipment, and travel expenses, it costs an average of $20 per pound for a deer hunter to put venison on the table. And how many hunters do you think tend vegetable gardens?
Sport or trophy hunting, on the other hand, is a totally different animal (pun intended). Hunters often claim that hunting is a sport involving fair chase. Fair sport involves two individuals on equal grounds who
have a mutual agreement to engage in the activity. If we were to make it fair to both parties, we'd have to give the animals guns too. I'd say it's about as fair as a UFC fight between Brock Lesnar and Steve Bennett. I've heard people justify hunting trips to Africa by saying the meat gets donated to the locals. Whatever dude. If you have the means to execute a trip around the world to kill an animal and are really concerned about the locals, go there and help build a school or purify some water or something. Or take a picture of an animal. I'd much rather see a picture of a zebra running in it's natural habitat than see a zebra head staring at me from above your fireplace. Trophy hunting serves one purpose. I can only assume people do this for the apparent pleasure of stalking and killing.
In the new world, sport hunting will be outlawed unless the animals sign an agreement to engage and are given the same weapons as the hunters.
AND SO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN!
