When most people think about hunting, they think about killing animals needlessly. Personally, I don’t think that at all. I actually think the exact opposite. I believe that since I am a hunter, I only think of one thing. That is to bring home dinner. Also, hunting can be very peaceful at times especially when you are by yourself. Most of the time when I go hunting, my dad comes with me but that doesn’t bother me one bit. For me, hunting can be a great bonding experience as well. Not many people like hunting very much but if you find someone who likes it, you’ll find out that you have a lot in common.

People who go hunting for the fun of it aren’t hunters. They are poachers, and that’s just wrong. Also, there are many up-sides to hunting. It controls the population. You are hunting them in their natural habitat so it’s not like they are being trapped or tortured. And my dad always tells me if I am going to make a shot make it a clean shot so the animal doesn’t have to suffer. Another reason is the animals have the chance to escape so its not like I am trapping it and then shooting it right there. That is why the sport is called hunting not killing because it really isn’t easy to hunt game at all.

All in all I expressed my opinions on hunting and how so much I believe in it. And let me ask you one more question. When you are eating beef how do you think they die? They get tortured not hunted. So if you think hunting is bad think again because this is how we live and survive and get through day after day. Hunting is definitely reasonable. This I believe.
