Comments on: In Israel We Watch Birds – In Lebanon?

Shooting clay pigeons is far less offensive, leathal & humane & pretty darn fun.

But what do you expect from Lebanese cavemen? I don’t know it appears to me that arabs are a sandwich short of a picnic!

Fire at will. I’ve never shot at living things but having blasted many clay pigeons I can definitely see the attraction.

Hunting to feed yourself in a matter of life and death is acceptable just as eating anything to keep yourself alive (no matter about kosher rules) is not just acceptable but required. You are not allowed to starve yourself to death if sustaining food is available.

Hunting to kill a population of animals that is a direct threat to the lives of people is also probably acceptable but Rabbis would sit and debate it for aeons no doubt.

I hate to break it to everybody, but hunting gives pleasure to the hunter and is a perfectly acceptable recreational activity and comports with social norms. The desire to hunt is in our genes. It really is.

That is why last year’s bagging of 500 garbage-eating bears in New Jersey had overall public support.

I am not a hunter myself, but I find hunting and hunters completely acceptable and beneficial to the larger community. The two nimrods featured here are just that and are not representative of hunters in general.
