I don't know, I mean I don't like hunting animals that aren't bred for hunting* and which you don't intend to eat (seriously; wild game is cheaper than beef, and you're supporting wild animal populations instead of crappy cow farms). But hunting a black bear with a bow is pretty impressive, black bears are also extremely common so hunting them isn't that bad in my opinion.
* (In my country (South Africa), the hunting industry has done a great job turning millions of acres of farm land back into wild, natural game farms where animals are also acclimatized to be much more cautious towards humans making hunting more difficult.)
>>494842 She would've been mauled if she missed probably, unless there was a back crew with rifles standing by.
>>494878 Whenever a woman does something, it makes it less cool for men to do. We are misogynistic dicks that way.
>>494883 >But hunting a black bear with a bow is pretty impressive This.
Bears are the equivalent of a genetically spliced SAS soldier, Vinnie Jones, RoboCop and Terminator. I've seen them take multiple shells from a shotgun and not be put down. One shot from the bow and it dropped fairly quickly, didn't make it far at all. Seemed like a clean kill.
>>494824 i dont see anything wrong with this. looked like a great shot. bear only goes a short distance and dies. clean kill and done in one shot. nice looking bear too. shes got bigger balls then me. i dont have any interest in taking a bear with a bow. at leas not without a stout sidearm. your either baiting (8/10), or your a moron.
>>495031 >edgelord >about animals Please, I'm not saying light them on fire, they're animals.
>>495001 >Cooperation and compassion keeps the world from being a nuclear wasteland Uhh no, the fact that two opposing forces have nuclear weapons as deterrent is why the world is not a nuclear wasteland.
I love to hunt, but I fucking hate the goddamn celebrity/reality show shit that has sprung up around hunting in the last decade. Fucking suburban "git er duuun" faggots wearing overpriced camo sweatpants and gutting the wilderness. Attention whores dramatizing hunts for prime time.
Whatever happened to genteman, conservationist hunters, like Ortega Y Gasset, Jack O' Connor, Robert Ruark... hell, even madmen like Capstick and Edward Abbey. Fuck.
I'm going to go read some Stephen Bodio and pout, I guess. http://stephenbodio.blogspot.ca/
Don't hate all of us hunters, OP. Just cunts like that.
I grew up in the northeast and have been around plenty of black bears in my day. They just want to eat berries and fuck around. They're interesting and bretty ok animals. They aren't scary (unless its a mother and cubs, then watch the fuck out) and are funny as fuck to watch. I understand they are common and delicious and have no other predators, but it always bothers me when peo hunt them. After getting used to them, they remind me more of precocious puppies than vicious predators. Video very fucking related
I know people hunt and kill animals all the time, and I'm no vegetarian, but I am bothered by people who hunt a more intelligent species, such as a bear or a wolf. If you're going to hunt, at least go after the prey species, such as deer or elk.
>>494883 >She would've been mauled if she missed probably I tend to doubt that. The whole time the bear was walking toward her, it looked confused, kept stopping to look around, and didn't lock in on the woman at any single point.
>>495100 Yeah they seem to be very playful and curious. I grew up in upstate NY, and despite being everywhere I never heard of them causing any harm other than minor property and crop damage. They love getting into garbage and doing dumb shit. They're fucking hilarious once you learn to not be afraid of them.
>>494995 Maybe some people enjoy wildlife and don't want you to destroy it all for your, and only your, personal benifit and enjoyment. If that's the attitude that all humanity took then you wouldn't even have any forests to hunt in.
>>495062 >Now, her fenced lion hunts in Africa...that's a different story.
You mean the ones where she pays thousands of dollars to kill a specific lion already chosen to be culled to insure continued strength of the pride whose carcass is then completely utilized for food and merchandise whose sales, along with the fees paid by hunters, contribute to the survival of the animal preserve which houses the lions? Those hunts?
OP here. Hunting with a bow is definitely an amazing skill, even hunting with a rifle is a skill. I have no issue with people hunting, provided they use at least some part of the animal, even just the hide.
What pissed me off particularly about this video is just about everything. First off, you can tell by her face what a stupid cunt she is. Makeup and earrings on a hunting trip, really? She also has that stupid as fuck pink bow just to say "I'm a girl by the way, lol so girly :)))". It's also a black bear, which had absolutely no interest and didn't even notice her until she blew on that whistle for a solid 2 minutes, and it went over to check out the noise. You can be damn sure there were also three men standing right behind the camera with rifles aimed right at the bear incase little-miss-hunter here missed her arrow shot, two of which probably took her on the trip just so they could take turns face fucking her later on. Literally all she does is wait for the bear to come over and release her arrow. Once the bear dies she then acts as if she has accomplished some great feat, and probably walked away with everyone congratulating her for that "great kill, real nice kill". She also talks likes she works as a presenter on a children's TV show which just adds to her looking like a retard.
That's the same reason hunting from tree stands or from one point pisses me off to, people pour a kilo of food on the ground and wait for hungry animals to come along, then right when one of them wanders into the scope of a rifle, BAM. There's no fucking skill involved, you might as well set up some computer program to fire your rifle as soon as there is motion in front of it. If you're going to hunt, put some fucking effort into it and track, find, and kill your prey, just like every animal in the wild has to do.
The title is also the most ridiculous thing, I didn't even see the bear charge once, they might as well have put "Brave GIRL shoots BIG TERRIFYING TERRORIST BEAR".
>>494824 Do oyu have any idea how fucking common black bears are? Come visit northern New Jersey sometime. They're fucking pesta animals. Sure I don't want them to go extinct, but if you're going to hunt any large carnivore in North America, a black bear is proabably the least impactful animal to kill. Add that to the fact that we have conservation programs for these things, and liscensing procedures to make sure they're not over hunted.
If it was a grizzly she killed, I'd be a little more rustled.
>>494824 Its just a bad video, 30 seconds of her kayaking up the river at the beginning, a frame of text talking about black bear overpopulation being a problem, cut out the retarded whistling and her reaction and then have the arrow shot as the climax. The last minute she should have talked about her equipment and what happens to the meat.
Right now the video makes it loo like she did no work and did it just for fun.
>>495430 >killing just for the hell of it Most people use at least the meat of the animal, if not the hide, bones, etc. Is that wrong? Are you a vegan, anon? Because hunting humanely (like in the video) is a hell of a lot less traumatic and abusive than meat farming is.
>>494978 The only reason there are still black bears where I live is because of the efforts of hunters. Governments used to view coyotes, bears and other predator species as dangerous pests that must be eliminated.
>>495594 I'm not a vegan I just don't want local wildlife to be extinct for future generations >>495572 Hunting is okay but mass uncontrolled hunting which eliminates local populations is not okay and selfish
>>495646 >I just don't want local wildlife to be extinct for future generations >mass uncontrolled hunting which eliminates local populations is not okay
Everyone hates poachers, anon. But "hunting," at least in the US, involves licensing, fees, restrictions, and most importantly, only a limited number of tags (permission to kill a single animal) are given out per year, in order to make sure that population levels don't drop. This is how people hunt. "mass uncontrolled hunting" to the point of extinction is NOT a thing. Poaching is a serious crime and is not done on a large scale, nor is it tolerated by hunters in general. I don't think you're very familiar with hunting.
tl;dr hunting will not make a population extinct, that's not how the system works.
>>495670 But hunter groups have done more for wildlife reintroduction and habitat preservation than any other environmental effort in the world.
Why do you want to stop this? Why do you hate nature?
>>495686 I don't understand why anyone would just leave a bear laying there. That's at least 700 dollars worth of meat. Would you just throw away 700 dollars for no reason? Even if you don't like bear meat, if you're a hunter you'll know someone who does. You haven't seen the treatment that people get from other hunters for wasting meat if you're honestly wondering that.
On a related note, I've picked up roadkilled deer and harvested the meat, antler, skin and bones. The meat is long gone but the antler has gone to make knife scales, the skin to moccasins and the bones I gave to an alcoholic named Greg because apparently he wanted them. How long do you think people would keep those skills if we banned hunting? I participate in nature, you seem to think it's some kind of zoo.
>>494824 I see nothing wrong with that video besides the fact that the shot was slightly quartering towards, she should have used a stouter arrow (>muh trajectory) and that she didn't "shoot a charging bear" like the video title said.
>>495686 Are you kidding? Black bears taste great most of the time because their diet is almost entirely vegetarian and the ones that are lucky enough to stuff themselves with berries or fruit usually taste better than your average deer.
No, the native Black Africans decimate the wildlife population and steadily decrease the available wilderness areas, specifically because there is either no hunting or hunting is so expensive very few can do it, resulting in no money for wildlife management or preservation of wilderness areas.
Blaming Western hunters is a lie promoted by animal rights kooks and anti-gun fundies, as Africa was swarming with game when Europe abandoned its colonies and allowed the Africans to rule themselves and the only thing keeping those species from going completely extinct today, are Western hunters and their money.
>>496132 >wolf, bear, Killed by or on the behalf of ranchers, not by sport, meat or trophy hunters and usually they weren't even hunted - most of them were poisoned and/or trapped.
>moose, Moose populations were much more affected by the destruction of habitat than by hunting, and the causes of the recent population decline are astronomically unlikely to have anything to do with hunting activity.
>>494905 >the wold would be a better place without her. You really think any of those banal, trivial, ridiculous reasons are good reasons for her to die? What the fuck is wrong with you? Are you a sociopath? Autistic perhaps?
>>496763 You can start to tred a thin line when it comes to 'can and cant have', but I think being able to buy and own a gun should be a bit more difficult. If you have to go through as much shit as you do to get your driver's license and a car, you should at least have to to go through the same amount to get a gun, in all circumstances.
A lot of shootings are accidental because people leave their guns out, with a round a chambered, and the safety off. That should be drilled into your brain before you're allowed to have one.
>>496768 The difference is if the government ever takes away your ability to own a car it's whatever, annoying as fuck, but whatever there's public transport. If someone up high keeps denying your ability to acquire a weapon, which has happened in the past in regards to CC permits, then you can't resist the government.
The problem is the ability to own a firearm, while not completely free, shouldn't be directly controlled by the government as the whole point, at least in the US, was to have the means to resist tyranny.
>A lot of shootings are accidental because people leave their guns out A lot of stabbings happen because people aren't safe with knives, a lot of overdoses happen because people are safe with non prescription medication, should be force government control of these?
>>496781 That's why I give multiple examples. For what it's worth there are more OTC drug overdose deaths than firearm deaths every year. Just because one person is an idiot and allows his kid access to a firearm doesn't mean that needs to effect me, when it is a minority situation.
How many firearms circulate the US? How many accidents happen? Why are you trying to fix a problem that is statistically extremely minor? Again it just doesn't make sense as there's plenty of far more abused things that aren't as regulated, but guns get the bad rap because they're scary.
>>496786 Boards are allowed to cross a little you know? You can't have a perfectly subject matter board. If the mods hate it by all means remove it but I think it's healthy to discuss stuff like this wherever.
"Charging" bear? You mean how it was just simply trotting over to check out the call? I'm not against hunting, people can hunt all they want. But when you are this stupid, trying to make yourself seem like some kind of gritty survivalist fighting for your life while doing something like this it just gives a bad name to every other hunter out there
>brrreeeeeeeepppppp BREEEEEEEEEEEPPPP >bear gets curious and trots over, then STOPS to sniff around >HOLY SHIT IT'S COMING RIGHT FOR US!
