I didn't ask for others ideas. I asked for yours! and if you read the Thread it said " proper and concise" if you want to answer, answer with an articulate, meaningful answer like mr. october not some conforming rhetoric you think people want to hear. the reason I started this thread is for real people to give real reasons pro or con.
Better ease-up on the personal attacks, dude....AT moderators don't take kindly to that around here....
First of all, REAL people have given 100's of REAL reasons (including myself) over the past several months on the WHA issue. Clicking on "Search" and then entering "WHA" would enable you to educate yourself on the many reasons why the WHA has the potential to backfire on bowhunters and the sport of bowhunting. Many of us on AT posted on this issue until we were exhausted. If you expect this thread to grow to 100's of posts, it ain't gonna happen. Most of us are burned-out on constantly reiterating why we oppose the WHA.....
I've posted the following (plus about 50 other comments on the WHA) over the past 3 months:
1) Deer hunting is not "hunting" when tranquilizer darts are used! Sends
the wrong message to the non-hunting public, that could be construed
as "darting/drugging" could replace the actual killing of animals in real
2) Hundreds of thousands of dollars riding on a deer's life is bordering
on "unethical" to me, personally.
3) High-fenced land.....veterinarians on-site to revive animals.....captive-
bred (pen-raised) deer are only ones that could legally be used.....NONE
of this has anything to do with real hunting.
4) This entire concept/operation would be 100% ILLEGAL on any public land
(or on any WILD deer) anywhere in America.....certainly doesn't
represent the type of "bowhunting" 99% of bowhunters participate in.
What is YOUR personal opinion on the WHA? As far as the "negativity" you said
you have seen on the WHA, do you agree or disagree with it?
