No.

I sure would! There is just something about them that really makes me "highly dislike" them with all my hart. I would murdeliz em! Obnoxious looking things. They are almost enough to get me on a plain to Australia to go shoot them. Then I would go to Africa & shoot hordes of red butted baboons.I also seem to hate buzzard, & vultures. I have thought lately that I would like to find some place here in Texas where I could shoot some vultures for the fun of it. Do you feel like this about any particular animals?...

I would never shoot an animal just for the sake of killing it.  I shot a dog once because its owner wouldn't keep it confined to her yard.  (Light hit with a BB in the backside, no harm done.)  I have no problem with killing any kind of animal for depredation or population management.  I kill pests that are causing me grief, but I surely would not kill an edible game animal like a 'roo just for sport.

My philosophy on edible animals is:  If you kill it, you grill it.  (Thanks Ted Nugent.)

I personally find kangas kinda cute.  I couldn't shoot them without the intent of eating one.

You have way too much hate in you.  You need more love.

I wouldn't kill an animal for no good reason.  But with some animals, target practice is good enough reason!

I'm surprised T.J.. Well then do you think it's wrong for guys to shoot prairie dogs, chucks, & crows? Most of the people I know who do this don't eat them, or make anything from them, or even really need to shoot 1,000 rds plus during a good day of pd shooting. Heck most of them don't own the land they hunt on even, so their not protecting their land, or gardens. When I lived in Rapid City I talked to one rancher who told me people come from all over the world to p dogs on his ranch, & pay for the privilege to boot. I have never seen a single p dog product on the market. I don't think doing these kinds of shooting activities is a way to determine if someone is 12 or less.

I'm TOTALLY with TJ on this. If it really brings you great pleasure to shoot as many living things as possible just because you can, then you are freakin 12 years old. At least mentally and emotionally. And don't give me the same old tree-hugger/vegan accusation crap. I despise anti-hunter/anti-gunner left-wing types MORE than most. I just don't get pleasure out of blowing heads off of living things and leaving what's left of the carcass to rot in the sun. I would kill to protect. I would kill to feed. But I won't kill for "fun". That is, unless Bin Laden or some other terrorist were fair game in my safari...

Edited to add: Population control and pest control are valuable tools that I happen to agree with to a point. But I don't find myself looking a pics of Roos, or rabbits, etc and deciding that "I just don't like them so I want to kill them". Sounds a little weird to me.

Hey now, slow it down there big guy! I haven't called anyone any names on this post. I just asked a simple question.
I haven't personally killed an animal in a few years now. I'm just asking if anyone else feels like I do, that certain animals beckon me to send them a bullet via airmail.
It is funny to me that a lot of "no I would certainly not kill an animal" types, have gone out of their way to express that they would gladly end a human life with their guns, but hey I'm the 12 year old with out the ability to properly posses a firearm, so maybe it's just me. It seems just a little screwed up. I agree kill murderers like Bin Laden, but kill the democrats? my mom, & my sister are demi's. That to me sounds just a little extreme.

I was driving a Ford Ranger (I tell everyone that I shot my first moose with an 88 Ford Slug).  Yes the 2 included the roadblock I ran into.

Damn lucky to be alive, that's for sure.  When I hit him broadside, the truck took out his legs and put his body on the windshield which pressed like a sardine can all the way flush with the back of the cab.  What saved my ass was that I ducked into the passenger seat last second.  The dashboard did more damage to me than the moose itself.  All I remember after the "OH SHIT A MOOSE!" moment was waking up in total darkness coughing.  I freaked and started kicking and punching everything around me (turns out I was balled up in the passenger floor under the glove compartment).  I guess the door opened up somehow and I flushed out with all the moose guts which disembowled into the cab.  All I recall after that was somehow walking to the front of the truck, and one of the headlights was still working which illuminated the red entrails hanging off my head and chest.  I think I went down after noticing that (turned out to the moose, not me).

In the end, according to the local PD a French logger drove past me.  It happened in Bingham, ME when I was a whitewater guide during college break.  Way up north.  He found the accident, saw the moose carcass in pieces and saw my bloody ass on the side of the road.  I guess I was out for an hour till the hamburger squad showed up.  Word has it that the trucker threw a blanket over me cause he thought my ugly ass was dead!  I guess an officer peeled the sheet off and realized I had a pulse!

Boy was I messed up though.

So anyway, yeah, I friggin HATE moose.  I'll violate Fish and Game laws just to mess with em.

Now I'm all fired up!

lol...okay I'm calm.

But did I mention that I hate moose?  After I dropped my second moose (300 mag, 150 yards)I put a 357 in his head, just because.

Roos not only rape crops, they also run in front of your car, give a stupid "look at the lights" face and then BLAM! its under your car and you/your car are totally fucked up.  This is why bull bars are called roo bars here.  There are even efforts to make some electronic device which stops roos from jumping in front of your car.  There was a family in my church who were on a outback highway and a roo jumped in front of their 4 wheel drive.  Their 4wd had a roo bar and the result was a dead roo, write off car and severe injuries to some of the occupants of the 4wd.

We got one shitload of pests.  Roos breed out of control, rabbits breed out of control besides attempts to stop them, cane toads (similar to bull frogs) are waaaay out of control, goats go crazy in northern aus, buffalo or some large similar creature are eating up northern aus as well.  This is only some of the pests and all except 1 on the short list has been introduced.

Roos are quite easy to take down but stink like hell when they are dead.  A simple .22 could take em down easy.

BTW, the park where skippy was filmed closed down last year/early this year.  95% sure skippy is dead.

Albino roos look friggin weird.

On an interesting note eric, my Great Granduncle (uncle of my grandfather) was in Canada, serving in the British Army.  While in Canada, he found a young orphanded bear by the side of the railway near Winnipeg and named him Winnie (you should see where im going by now).  He took the bear home to Britain and left it with someone when he left for war.  This author was the person who wrote winnie the pooh (aa milne or somethin..i forgets) and the bear of course was the winnie in winnie the pooh.  My grandfather tells me this story every few years and he is not one to make things up.

That's a pretty good story but has been slightly embellished over the years.  True that Pooh came from Canada.
The guy was in the Canadian Army.
Pooh was left at the London zoo, not in the care of AA Milne.

Food or defense--I told my son if he shot a songbird -he better know how to clean it and eat it.
Link Posted: 4/29/2003 3:06:06 AM EDT
I kill moose for spite.  I divide the meat amongst friends and family. I keep the tender stuff for stews and jerky.  So I utilize the beast, but when I drop him, I do so with one eyebrow engaged in a vengeful expression.

Cleaning a moose, now THAT's worth a trophy in itself.

If you physically kick the snot out of a Roo, you're required to eat it!  Isn't that Australian backcountry law #468?

I do not believe killing any animal is a sport. I do not believe in the 'sport' of hunting.

That said: I lived off hunted game and the revenue from trapping for many years as a child. Fortunately my circumstances now are difference and I am not forced to hunt to eat.

I believe in eating that which you hunt. And hunting only that which you need to eat.

I shared this topic with my mom, & dad . My mom was against shooting roos(not the guy from NY).
Later she brought it up in front of my dad, & he was about to chime in on how he would shoot them, & my mom started going off on how angry it made her that I would shoot a roo. He said he just  kept silent.(smart man) He's a republican, she's a demi. Go figure. Any ways my dad said he'd shoot them too, so maybe it runs in the family.

If you shoot a female roo, you should check its puch for any joeys and if you find one you step on its head.

If you want to try to beat a roo, go ahead but you wont last very long.  They do have retractable scrotums which go into their body when they are about to fight (otherwise they will rip each other's off).

Tell ur mum that roos are a real problem here and even though she might think they are cute and furry, they need to be culled so they dont damage the environment too much.

believe it or not, there are a few places in Aus where they cull koalas.

Feral/wild hogs, Starlings and house sparrows.
But then again all of these are considered pests and have no closed season.
Being from Missouri I really want to bag a big wild boar. They are the most dangerous animals around here and I want the thrill of the hunt.
Oh yeah, I still hunt (Walk around and look for the critters) and use either a M1 Garand (30-06 8rd clip) or a CETME (.308 semi-auto w/20rd mag).
.223s are varmint and deer only.

They use varmint calibers on them like 22-250. They are reportedly thin skinned and fairly easy to put down.

That's not entirely true. You need a permit to hunt them in most parts of Australia. Animals introduced by white settlers are another matter entirely. Rabbits, hares, foxes, goats, pigs, deer, water buffalo, camels, feral cats & dogs (dingos are classed as a native animal) and introduced birds can be hunted any time of the year, no bag limits. The only restrictions are the usual ones involving entering private land without permission, and no hunting on government land without an appropriate permit to be there.
