Youth Hunting – Teaching Savagery Should Be Considered Child Abuse
Here are the words of the father following
killing of the little deer:
Just got the time to get back on this computer and
give you an update from Big Oaks Youth Hunt 2007 this past Sat. 11/3/07. We
hunted all day from a ground blind in the middle of big thicket with
multiple trails cutting across it. All we saw in the AM was about 30 turkeys
that put on a great fall show for Hunter and I. They had us laughing so hard
we were crying in that ground blind.
[Editor’s note: Were they drunk? – Hunters and Dad, that is.]
with the sun setting in the PM we had about 10 minutes of hunting time left
and I told Hunter we had to pack up and head out to check out. This was
about 6:10PM, when all of the sudden Hunter said dad, I see a deer out about
70 yards in front of us and she is coming our way. I told him let’s get your
shooting stix up and get your muzzleloader ready and see what she if she
will come into your range. As luck would have it, she (button buck) walked
right to 50 yards of Hunter, straight away and perfect broadside.
I told him to pick a spot and aim small, miss small.
Squeeze the trigger and let it be surprise and he did! She only went
10-steps and fell over and he had his second deer of the year. We both were
high fiving and carrying on like to kid’s! What a wonderful day spent with
my best hunting buddy.
When we checked out at about 7:15pm, they had checked in 15 deer, not bad
for 150 youth hunters for the day.
In a sane world, teaching a child to kill animals for fun
would be considered a terrible form of child and animal abuse. This father
has taught that killing is fun and animals’ lives are “funny.” This is all
the more obscene because the finale of the hilarity is to blow their brains
Especially for the wildlife, but hunters
shoot each other and themselves all the time.
