This “hunter” artfully demonstrates what stupidity truly is.
An ethical hunter respects the game he or she pursues. Harassing or interfering with any wild animal does not fall under the code most of us adhere to. That’s why the following clip not only highlights pure stupidity; it also demonstrates how not to act in the field.
Not wanting to give anything away, here’s the video for you to judge yourself.
There would be nothing wrong with this clip if he intended to harvest the animal. But luring a moose to within inches, only to smack it in the antlers then let out a bark is, well, just plain idiotic.
What are your thoughts? In my view, as someone who wants to show hunting in a positive light, it’s behaviors such as this that give anti-hunters the ammunition they need.
The people who produced the video did state this in writing:
Warning, do not try this with wild animals. Their actions and reactions are unpredictable and sometimes dangerous to humans.
They should listen to their own advice.
