The Reasoning Behind the Hunt: What Outsiders Don't Understand [VIDEO]

This video does an outstanding job of describing why we hunt. It's easy to get caught up in the game of points and inches, but there's more to it than that.

People who don't hunt often have a difficult time understanding why some of us love hunting so much. I sometimes struggle to put into words when asked why I hunt.

Well, this video does a great job of describing exactly why we hunt and does a much better job of explaining what I have ever never been able to.


The quote below is my favorite part from the entire piece:

There is no need to be ashamed of desiring to kill. The very purpose of a deer's life is to be killed and feasted upon.

Remember: no matter how it dies, something is going to eat that deer. Either a hunter will kill and eat it, or it will die in the wild and be eaten by coyotes, vultures, and bugs.

Killing game animals in and of itself is not wrong. Wanton or wasteful killing is wrong. However, there is nothing wrong with killing a creature in order to eat it

Remember: we must kill to survive. Something, be it a plant or an animal, died to provide the nutrients so that you and your family can continue to live.
