Hunting

One to get you going. Here are the rules: 1. express your opinions without insulting any one 2. Give reasonable arguments and don't tell any one they are wrong/right 3. This is set up in the hope of seeing what everyone thinks about the whole hunting thing 4. please share experiences Just so you know: I hunt with the North Cots and Warks. I am pro and I am against the ban on hunting and I will carry on hunting. I have my own reasons for it which I will share later. Bring on the sensible debate [:D]

Re: Hunting

Now that I agree 100 per cent with. Definitely a class war. I was described earlier as a "spoilt little rich girl" on facebook by someone who saw my horses. And it that isn't prejudice, I don't know what is!

Re: Hunting

Huning is great and definitely essential to keep the balance!! If nobody hunts foxes then there will become too many, and not enough chickens!!! I agree though, it is so a class war. We have had pitch forks thrown, all sorts of things done, with children there mind!!!!

Re: Hunting

im realy sorry you will all hate me i hate hunting never been never will i allso will not go and protest the foxes ar a wild animal ive had live stock killed by the fox but is natrul you would kill a wild horse with a pack of dogs just because one of them have done something wrong no i didnt think so i find tearing a animal (which would feel as much pain as a horse) apart with dogs is crul (i cant spell but then i should think you will care as you are gunning for me at this moment in time )if killing these lovly looking animals is realy needed then there must be a more human way of doing it would you feel the same if you were hunting horses because there was too many of them now i know the answer to that hate me if you will this is my feelings and a very small part of them didnt want to upset anyone to much

Re: Hunting

I work in wildlife and I am pro (fox, not stag as I think there are better ways to control deer - ie you dont need to chase...you can use a landi and a gun if necessary) because I understand eco-systems and natural balance. I went to Hyde Park I feel much of the anti argument is based around a dislike and misconception that poeple who hunt are a snotty nosed bunch of toffs, which is not true. I have seen the results of snares (urgh my god - being ripped to bits in 0.3 second is nothing compared to the suffering of a snare (even 'humane' ones can become self tightening of not maintained properly - if only more people knew what that looked like). Many farmers left foxes alone because they left it to the hunt (and lots of humts down here were far more bothered about galavanting around the coutryside than catching foxes!) now the hunt cant work, the sanres, baits, gassing (often when cubs are in the den), and traps come out - they cretainly aren't just left alone now. I COMPLETELY and UTTERLY diagree with diggging out though. If you want to call something a 'sport' you must be sportsmanlike and I class it as one to the fox if he makes it home. If the hardcore hunting fraternity had just accepted that, the ban may not have come about as it was those images that did the damage and they disgust me too. It also does nothing for the argument that hunting is natural selection..ie getting the infirm, the weaker etc... [IMG]http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd95/ceej10000/fox.gif[/IMG]

Re: Hunting

i've never been hunting and don't think i will ever go, i'm a bit of a chicken. i am pro hunting though and love to see the hunt, it's a part of english tradition and gives people a lot of fun. i also love hounds so that's another plus. they don't catch that many fox's and if they didn't try the farmers will only trap or shoot them anyway. it should be preserved and enjoyed. sam xxx

Re: Hunting

My dad made an interesting comment the other day.... He said he had never in all his life seen so many dead foxes on the road having been hit by vehicles. I agree, now accidents happen but that is not sport, against a car they stand no chance [:(]

Well said Savkins. I was thinking along the same lines, but am too tired to put it into words properly! You've just saved me the bother xxx
