Hunters Getting Desperate

Submitted to the Washington Post


A recent article in the Post reported on hunting groups trying to lure children into the blood sport (Hunting for youth 11/16). Many Americans are happy to see that these efforts are not paying off. As the number of active hunters declines, game agencies and private hunting groups are getting desperate and are spreading their pro hunting and trapping propaganda to even Boy Shouts and Girl Scouts groups.

With sales of hunting licenses dropping steadily nationwide, game agencies (who depend upon the revenue generated from the sale of hunting and trapping licenses, and guns and ammunition) must create a new generation of hunters if they wish to exist in the relatively near future.

Clearly the public is rejecting the slaughter of harmless animals for sport. The image of cave dwellers comes to the minds of many people when they think of those who hunt and trap animals for recreation. Hunting and trapping animals for kicks is a barbaric practice that has no place in the modern world.
