Would you kill it, knowing you would never get caught?:set1_thinking:
I'll bite..........No.I am a firm believer and i live by it....if it's not causing bodly harm and your not going to eat it........don't kill it.I take a lot of pride in not being one of those who......it's there and i'm here and i'm killing it for no reason other than self pleasure.Would you kill it, knowing you would never get caught?:set1_thinking:
Not much difference between shooting an animal illegally and stealing a tree stand while trespassing.So your asking who on here will admit that they would break the law? Funny how some could precieve that as ok to do but would come unglued about someone shooting a deer illegally.
You need to live and hunt an area where they are at, and watch then destroy the herds. while being told you can't do any thing about it. Not to mention they are now coming into people's propety to stalk animals, I mean like right out side there house kinda coming into their property. I know of several cases where people have had then inside thier yard where their kids wait for the school bus.
I don't mean to horn in,but i stole a tree stand when i was 18.....that was 35yrs ago when i was stupid and uncaring.......i've grown up since than and have respect for other peoples property and have respect for wild life.Some never grow up and learn the true meaning of sportsmanship and being ethical.
After reading that article about the wolves taking the herd of elk in yellowstone from 16,000 to 6,000, it kind of makes me wonder, as an elk hunter, if confronted with that situation what I would do. I still am not sure. I love my elk hunting and we dont have enough elk here in Oregon to sustain a drop in elk population like that.Why? If you stumbled upon me, would you kill me knowing you wouldnt get caught??
