Subject: Hunting.
People who oppose hunting, usually don't understand the dynamics of a wild animal population in an ares where there is a large population of humans. Wild animals depend on the balance of predator and prey to keep both populations in control. In certain areas wild predators have been eliminated or driven out of the area, so human hunters must replace those predators or the wild population of prey animals will increase out of control till the area is overpopulated and there is a die off of prey animals. A large number of dead prey animals is not healthy for anyone.

I think you make a really good point about the sometimes overlooked benefits (for animals and humans) of hunting.

The only kind of hunting I have personally done is fishing (which may not be hunting?) I prefer it because I can wear a bikini and work on my tan. Maybe I'll have to find a camouflage one for the next trip! smiling face

Hey Mister! LOL! smiling face sisyphus smiling face

The next time I'm out I'll make sure to take some appropriate photos. We'll see! If I take pictures, does fishing count as hunting? I think it may be a good time to "shoot" since I do fancy myself a fox! We'll see what we can reel in... lots of fish in the sea... maybe I'll catch a big one wearing fishnets?! wink blush whee heart hug

Also, you can send me a private message anytime. For every D.O.M. there is a D.L.R.G.

I would think that fishing is a kind of hunting, except if you do it the way my grandfather used to do it. My grandfather worked in the coal mines long before regulation and licensing went into effect, so he had access to dynamite and knew how to use it. He used to go to a fishing hole with a basket and some dynamite, throw a quarter stick with a lit fuse into the water, and when the dynamite went off, he'd just take a pole and gather the fish into the basket.

In case you think I was making an offer, I'm strictly a D.O.M. look but don't touch, much like Al Bundy, Married with children. hug

Also, I'm not quite sure about this, D.L.R.G. ?

This brings up obvious ethical concerns... and is very oppositional to the logic used to sustain the original argument about hunting's benefits to the animal population.

It went from a discussion of what role hunting may play in 21st century nature conservation to the willful and desirous image of a scantily clad woman.

The metaphor of the "hunt" here maybe crude and antiquated for our current sensitivities.

We can throw in for good measure the Greek myth of Actaeon, who glimpses the naked form of Artemis when out hunting. As punishment he is transformed into a stag and is torn to pieces by his own hunting dogs.

Gotta love the sexy irony.

Nihil Loc,

I like the parallels you make; they're right on, cool.
