Well, if humans were Amphibious then I'd bitch about the cowardliness of that as well.

You have done nothing to refute his points. Perhaps your friend needs to participate in this thread.


Well, Blobby Beers, It's impossible for an urbanite to argue about the facts of Man vs Wild when said person is a regular Dick Proenneke.

Don't know about Dick Proenneke, but I did meet Micheal Oros in the bush north of Shesley one afternoon. Mad Mike, he called himself. Was dressed in buckskins and had a dog with a snout full of porcupine quills. Gave him a new axe file and about 50' of poly rope.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Dick Proenneke is the original real deal Bush Man, Topper. Surprised a man of your wilderness calibre does not know of him.

Hunting practices evolve, just like anything else.

Should he go out with a sharpened stick and use it as a spear to be true to the vague notion of "searching for your own?"

The first rule of hunting is safety, and anyone who has ever actually gone hunting knows this.

Spare me the strawman argument. And here I thought you were the logical one on this board now.

Not if you were sitting in a tree when you took that baited cow or chicken down w/ the kill shot.

Oh come on Clam, where is the strawman?

I said your notion of "searching for your own" and a more noble way of hunting is vague, and I asked a question in that vein.

That's no strawman my friend.

Right, because eating meat from animal farms made for slaughter is much better.

Stay within the content of the debate with some respectability and lose the condescending tone, Father.

It''s basically this, Coco. We all know that meat comes from animals, some cute and cuddly, some not so cute and cuddly, in order for humans to get meat some animal has to get killed, I would think that Clam is intelligent enough to know this and actually does not mind this. What we are talking about here is how one dufus named Booth went about game hunting and how absolutely cheesey his process of seeking out a bear really was. Quite simple, really.

Once again RD, you show your laughable lack of intelligence.

The unstated implication of the safety comment ties into this whole baiting thing.

It's much safer to hunt a bear by baiting, in a province where that is legal, than a more "noble" way.

If that's still too hard for you to grasp...then I'm sorry buddy, but good try, good effort.

I never said that. Classic case of strawman right there.

Baiting bears is bad.....so slaughter houses are good?

I qualified earlier I wasn't talking about hunting, it was baiting specifically.
