I can't believe that in 2009 we still have bottom feeders that want to kill such a magnificent animal. Many anthropologist believe man's mutual beneficial association between (cave) men & wolves is in part responsible for the success of mankind in those early days when man was the prey, more often than the hunter.[8|]
I have been hunting for 40 years & have shot everything from woodchucks to Elk. There are plenty of animals that we can hunt while we get back to & enjoy nature & the wilderness. Spending 2 to 5 days by yourself while hunting in the wilderness resets your physique and allows you to further endure civilization.[:D]
Isn't that enough without killing one of God's greatest creations? We hunt for recreation, not because we have to. Do you really have to kill a wolf because there's one less deer or four fewer rabbits? You have to really question your motives if you find it necessary to kill a creature that in all probability is smarter than you.[8|]
And what would your reaction be if "The Society for the Preservation of the Great Northeastern Spotted Barking Woodchuck" (not a real group...at least I hope) tried telling you that you're killing "such a magnificent animal"? You've hunted woodchuck for sport, I assume. Are you going to just lay down your weapon and say, "Oh...okay...sorry about the woodchucks."? Why does it seem that there are so many out there that have this maniacal view of "What I hunt is fine, what you hunt is stupid"?
