If people hunt to eat, then that's cool.
Equally, some hunting is necessary to keep some animal populations in control.
However, the point is both have to be humane. Guns are good for this (and yes, I realise I was arguing against guns in another thread, but that was in the context of handguns etc) as if you know what you're doing you can kill an animal very quickly and easily.
I'm against hunting for sport, or "fun". Killing an animal should not be fun simply for the sake of inflicting harm on something. Certainly not if it's for the means of culling - that's a clinical thing, you're there to do a job. Hence why the whole "cat killing with shotguns" business was so outrageous, because the writer clearly seemed to enjoy it solely for the sake of inflicting harm and pain on animals.
I've lost my point.
I tell you what is horrendous - fox hunting with dogs in England. That's barbaric. That could be done with guns quite easily.
