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.

Did anyone make a joke about shooting bruins two playoffs ago? Seems like there could be a good quip there...

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.

duh, you said taking a picture of a kill is wrong, so I asked if taking a picture of prepared meat from another form of legal animal killing is also wrong.

Baiting is legal in certain areas, and where it is legal, the distinction of what is right or wrong in terms of taking photographs of dead animals, be they raw, cooked, or being cleaned, is minimal, and that's the point of my comment.

That's not a strawman Clam, but a very valid question unless you're a vegan who is completely against the killing of animals for food, sport, fun etc.

Pay attention to the unstated implications.

Also, if you, or others want arguments without logical fallacies, maybe you shouldn't use them yourselves.

An example is this:
I maintain firmly that baiting is the act of a narcissistic coward with too much time & money.

Its not a "man's" sport, its rich men feeding their egos but can't be bothered getting cold, wet & possibly failing.
Those are ad hominem attacks my friend.

You fail to mention that Booth has been an avid hunter since he was young. He has stated on a few occasions that he grew up in a hunting environment, and it has cultural and normative significance to him as an individual.

So with that, how is it fair to label him "a narcissistic coward with too much time & money" because he conforms to a perfectly legal hunting practise?

You've leapt, and you made a damning assumption based on your personal belief on an issue.

That's no way to form a cogent argument.

Where is the sport in that, real fucking challenging way to hunt I tell ya. I have a close friend who hunts black bears all the time, legally and they certainly do not go about it the cheesey way Booth does.

For Clam

Bleached bear skull. can you see the oil painting in the background? It is a knock off Van Gogh.

If you see a deer out in a wheat field eating wheat is it ok to shoot it (legality presumed)? If yes then your ignorant rant about bating bears holds no water. If no then there is really no talking sensibly to you is there?
