But then, with your background and experience, you should already have possessed that knowledge.You're forgetting the key part of hunting ....the "hunt". Going out to the wilderness and searching for your own. Thats hunting.

Really? (viewtopic.php?p=151213#p151213) Maybe it is your way of debating to accuse others creating strawmen. Good ol LBJ. Repeatedly, by myself, Coco and Carlyee, the fallacies and errors that you base your views upon have been exposed and without a basis for your views, those views are ignorant.ClamRussel wrote:I haven't "attacked" anyone's views that are different than mine. Quite the contrary, people who favour these hunting practices have done the personal attacks.
ClamRussel wrote:If someone doesn't agree with Booth they are called ignorant.
That is stating fact. Would you prefer the euphemism "lack of knowledge"?You have done nothing in this thread but advertise your ignorance of modern hunting, your preference for inhumane hunting practises, your complete disregard for hunter safety and your lack of knowledge of the laws governing hunting.
Oh please Clam, tell us of that vast hunting background and experience that you possess because it certainly isn't shown in any of your posts in this thread.ClamRussel wrote: The only ignorance going on here is assuming to know a person's background and experience without knowledge.
lol this isnt even the first thread on Booth on this board, the Dude raged against booth on religious grounds when he first pooh poohed the trade to bring him here. At that time it was brought up that Booth was an avid hunter and I wondered then how he would be received in the city on the edge of the great bear rainforest. I was picturing the whole west end up in arms, spontaneous gay pride parades striking up in protest left and right. PETA and animal rights activists chaining themselves to tree huggers and the mass spiking of tree beer.dbr wrote:Considering this is post 268 of a thread on a fan message board discussing it..

Fred's having fun because he doesn't like the player and obviously many sneer at hunting (and some hunters) in general but it's not like the holy roller is going to get booed every time he touches the puck at GM Place now.
This is a non-story that would be buried by now if we had an NHL season to talk about.
Fred I personally am not a hunter as I have more than enough home grown beef 100yds from my house. My brother in law hunts and has great burgers and sausage made from game. The issue is that hunting is legal and as Topper said the meat must be used. That doesn't mean Booth has to personally ingest every ounce. He may very well give it to friends or whatever. I Like to see wildlife roaming free as well, however, there are a myriad of reasons why hunting is allowed. I had a wolf cross and hate the thought of seeing them shot because of lobbying by the beef cattlemen, but I understand why. Wolves, bears and the cats have no natural predators to help control the population. WHen their numbers increase to the point where their "territory" no longers provides enough food they either starve or move. An animal is no different than a human when it comes to looking for food. They will take the easiest meal available. Thats why cattle herds and garbage become the wolf and the bear's "Keg". The numbers of wildlife are closely monitored and hunting is expanded or contracted as the numbers dictate. Too many deer and elk can cause major problems in agricultural areas such as where I live. A small herd of 20 elk can totally destroy a 50 ton stack of hay in days. Deer can destroy ornamental trees and gardens.Fred wrote:I'll be interested in seeing if this gets a reaction from the fans ? Booth is not the most popular player to start with. I'd have to think Vcr being rural there's a number of people who don't care for hunting. Topper you might be surprised how many people prefer to see a mountain goat climbing up a mountain. I'm wondering how he can eat all that meat, he's shot what bear + elk + goat = 3000+lbs of meat ? how many sausages will that make and then he has to take it all back to Minnesota with him unless of course he gives it to the guide that takes him direct to the spot/hide needed ?
He's have made more frinds had he made it into sauage and given it to the street people in Vcr
