Straight Talk from Joe Rogan on the Ethics of Hunting [VIDEO]

Joe Rogan talks to Cameron Hanes and lays some common sense and ethics on the world minutes after his Colorado mule deer kill. 

Joe Rogan talks about trophy photos, the ethics of hunting over the factory food system, how challenging bowhunting is compared to hunting with firearms, and his love for wild game.

It’s very good stuff.

Hanes added, “We worked hard out here. This is, I think, our third or fourth day …We’ve had to earn everything we’ve gotten. It was a great effort. It was an ethical kill. We’re happy about that.”

“We are,” Rogan replied. “For hunters there’s no controversy at all. There’s not a single hunter who feels like you shouldn’t be happy that you made a kill. So, the people who have issue with it, they’re talking about it from a place of not having experienced it. I don’t want to say ignorance, but that really is what it is. It’s a lack of experience. You don’t know what it is. You don’t know what the hunt is…I’m happy that this animal gave me its life. This is not a sad moment. This is a happy moment.”

We’re not hiring a supermarket hitman to go out and do the dirty work for us…

“Do I respect these animals? Absolutely! They’re amazing. They’re magnificent and they’re beautiful,” says Rogan. “But there’s a reality to eating meat, and there’s a reality to life…The difference between hunters and someone who buys their meat in a supermarket is we’re not hiring a supermarket hitman to go out and do the dirty work for us, so we feel completely free of any guilt.”

Yes indeed, Rogan and Hanes are spot-on correct. Share this with your hunting friends and especially with any anti-hunting folks you may know…and challenge them to deny the truth of Rogan’s comments.
