Not that's cruel, unless you use a CIL Wobbler.

I read this in the paper two years ago, and will never get it out of my mind. A father was hunting with his teenage son. The son took a shot at what he thought was a deer, but when he approached his prey, he found his father, in a pool of blood, shot in the head. The son was so distraught at what he had done, he shot himself in the head and died beside his father. But unbeknownst to the son, the father wasn't dead--he had been knocked unconscious, but it was a superficial head wound. The father regained consciousness to find his boy had committed suicide.

I agree with you, Little John. It isn't worth it!

Point well taken Mick.Personally i can't see the pleasure in hunting,tho' i will eat the meat.When the hunting season is open here it is like a war zone.I prefer fishing for a meal. ljc

What Mick said. I'm a recovering hunter, but, I understand the drive to do it. I killed my last deer 20 years ago, and, just before it expired, it looked up at me as if to ask, "Why"? I sold my guns and have not hunted since. I'm damn glad it was not a person that I shot.

First off, I second the Rest In Peace thought, Little John.

OK, suppose I buy your line of logic. Then it follows that we should give up any sport that someone could be killed in? How about giving up going to concerts because you could be killed driving to them. In fact I would bet that there is more danger doing that than hunting. Once you add up the gas, insurance costs, maintenance, tickets, etc. it would be much cheaper to just buy the CD, eh?

I think your post was written when your emotions were at a certain place. Hunting is a very old endeavor. Our essential nature is to hunt. Some don't express that part of their nature, some do. It all depends on your life experiences to date. I am a hunter. It is a part of who I am. I hate accidents that take friends unexpectedly, no matter what they were doing.

Mick

On Saturday i was sitting here at the pc and every few minutes there was the sound of sirens,ambulances,cops,fire trucks etc.Later on i went up to the pub for a pint and find out what was going on.
The story goes,two of the lads were in the woods moose hunting,brothers,one thought the other was behind him but it turns out he was off to the side.Anyway,it seems there was some kind of commotion in the trees and the older brother turned and fired.Yes,you've got it!It was the younger one.Died right away.
This is a small town and most everyone knows each other or are related in one way or another.
It's bad enough but at Christmas makes it worse.
So PLEASE,all you hunters out there,is it worth it?With the cost of the rifle,licence,ammo,gas,truck,snowmobile etc.You could buy a lot of steaks with the money and it is a lot safer.

R.I.P. Jackie Manning.
