I think hunting is fine as long as you walk into the animal’s habitat completely unarmed. If you can find a way to take down a buck deer in hand-to-antler combat, then bully for you. Careful not to get gored in the process, or you’ll both bleed out together and become coyote/vulture/ant food.

Hunting and factory farming are not equivalent. Hunting encourages humans to delight in the destruction of living things and is inherently anti-social. Working in a meat plant does not engender the same morbid libidinal impulse due to how mechanized it is.

I lived in one of the most Upper parts of Northern Wisconsin for a while when I was a travelling nurse. The stories I could tell you about Drunk hunters or snowmobilers would keep us entertained for the next 24 hrs. But one particularly tragic accident has always haunted me. It was early Deer season ( I think) and some Dumbass decides that this is the perfect time to introduce his 4-yr old son to hunting. I kid you not. The kid was dressed from head to toe in camo gear, and dad had already taught him some of the rudiments of shooting. * Shudder* Well, after getting up at 4:30 a.m. and driving to his favorite hunting bluff, the kid had actually fell asleep in the dad's truck. So dad makes the Stupendous decision to leave junior in the truck alone sleeping, so he can go sneak off and go hunting further in the woods with his buddies. Then the inevitable happened: the 4-yr Old woke up and got scared because he was all alone. He wandered off in search of his father, completely unaware that one should wear some sort of illuminated hunting gear- i.e. a band or vest of Neon to identify yourself to other hunters. That's when tragedy struck: while searching for his dad, other hunters saw un-identified movement and all start shooting at once- at the poor kid. Of course everyone in this ass-backwards town mourned for the father and said, " Well, it could have happened to anyone." Uh huh. I hope dad is burning in hell as we speak.

If families wanted to include the young in a safer way, maybe they could help with dressing a deer - though dismembering dead animals after draining them of blood might turn them into psychopaths, or at least cause nightmares. So - -

Why are y'all so anti hunting? Is it because of the connotations of redneckes, GOP and homophobia? I think in my country, hunting does not have such a bad image. Last year, someone hunted a bambi for us, half of it is still in the freezer and we will feast on our bambi this week.
Eating hunted food and killing animals that are needed to be killed to regulate wildlife accordingly is far better and healthier for animal and human than eating meat from dodgy slaughterhouses and supermarkets.
It always amazes me how out of touch some people are when it comes to their food. Organic meat isn't much better anyway. I'd even argue that hunted animals have had a better life than organic pigs. I am even sure of it!

He was hunting in a corn field, which sounds like he was hunting on private property without permission. Where I live, that’s a huge deal, i.e., the property owner does not like it (to say the least) and it’s also against the law. It’s also a set-up to get shot.
I was watching a YouTube video of this off-grid hetero couple in Alaska. The woman shot a moose a couple times in the neck and head areas (ultimately killing the moose). A commenter pointed out that you’re supposed to shoot moose in the lungs so that it dies quicker. I noticed on the video that the couple waited to approach the moose because they knew it was alive and maybe knew it might charge at them. I lost some respect for the couple because I think they knew they should have waited for a better shot. Also, they removed the comment about shooting the lungs.
I rarely eat meat, I think hunting is OK if you can kill the animal quickly. The worst would be to maim an animal, then the animal runs away but dies a slow death.

Hunting takes place in seasons; the season specifies a combination of what game are allowed to hunt (e.g., turkey, deer, bear, coyote, etc) and what device you're allowed to use (e.g., rifle, muzzle-loader, archery). Here in PA, there is a (black) bear season. Bear is (I'm told) extremely greasy and rarely eaten. Black bear generally forage, scavenge, or eat very small game, they affect the deer population in any meaningful way. A bear might stumble upon a fawn and eat it, but that's about it. These aren't grizzlies.
I grew up in the city and took a job in rural PA 15 years ago. I grew up without guns and the gun and hunting culture here was a big culture shock. I've gotten used to it, though I still don't hunt and doubt I ever will. Humans did wipe out the natural predators (i.e., wolves) because they were dangerous to us and our livestock. That threw the ecosystem out of whack and deer overpopulation continues to be a problem with hunting being the main solution. It's not nice for the deer, but neither is getting torn apart by a pack of wolves. No pleasant way to leave this mortal coil. With too many deer, the forest gets overgrazed and damaged, tick populations increase, car accidents increase, etc.
Hunting is on a decline with less kids interested, mostly I'm told because they're not interested in being outside. While I'm not a huge advocate for hunting, the hunters I've met are politically conservative but also have conservationist and environmentalist leanings and the forests need advocates, especially on the other side of the aisle.

I totally agree with the point that we cull because we’ve destroyed the ecosystem. But I’m not sure it’s possible to fix that? I do know that the deer literally starve to death over the winter if there are too many, long suffering deaths. So when I think about that, I’m ok with hunting — for other people. I have no interest in it, though I adore fishing.

I have no issue with people who hunt their food, but allowing prolonged suffering is unacceptable. Like that story about a hunter who went bow-hunting. He wounded an elk, went to sleep and would track it in the morning. He allowed the animal to suffer for hours all night as he went to bed. And then he got gored by it the next day.

Wrong, R91, I fully realize that's how it comes across, because, as much as I hate it, it's true.
People are going to eat meat no matter what and sustenance hunting is the lesser of two evils. It's better for the environment (factory/industrial farms are huge carbon emitters, 1000s of acres of land are wasted and poisoned by growing animal feed, which in turn uses enormous amounts of water), and better for the animals. With all the hormones and chemicals people ingest when eating factory farmed animals, eating wild game is healthier for people too.
I am against hunting in general unless it's Indigenous people or people in poverty who rely on hunting for food.

Way to ignore the rest of my post, R93.
People do engage in sustenance hunting, whether you choose to believe it or not. I personally know people whose main source of meat is game. Wild game is shared on reserves and reservations with the poor, the elderly, and the infirm in the community. Some of it is donated to food banks in other communities as well.
You don't like the idea of people using guns to kill an animal, neither do I, but dont pretend that store bought meat, or consuming store bought meat is superior.

So this happened on private land and it had to be obvious that a tended plot of farm land is private property. Is trespassing to hunt common?
For some reason I see a lawsuit on the horizon even though the kid had to have been dropped off by a parent or guardian. I wonder what kind of parents think it's OK to leave a teen with a gun alone, unsupervised on a dark country road. Then again it might be common behavior up there.

Yes and that’s why there are so many organizations to help protect animals from human-caused environmental damage and animal cruelty as well.
But you’re saying that instead of culling we can just destroy humans. Again, can we start with you? No, I didn’t think so. How about we choose the non-suicidal response, like we do with environmental damage and animal cruelty?
With the cull some deer are killed. Typically they die very quickly and typically their meat goes to feed a working class family. This is typically less traumatic than, say, being preyed on by a pack of wolves — it’s not uncommon for wolves to start eating a deer when it’s still alive.
But apparently we can’t have that because of absurd sentimentality — often from people who underwrite the mass slow torture and death of animals every bit as cute as deer.
Oh but the mean bad hunters! Typically reflected narcissism of first world living — like social media socialists complaining about capitalism on their thousand dollar cellphones their investment banker parents bought for them.
