Well its part and parcel of the hunting world isn't it? I think we can both agree that a shooter if he could would like to place a shot that was an instant kill 100% of the time and if anyone running a dog could make it possible for a deer to feel no stress during the course then i'm sure any true hunter would. But none of these things can be done i'm afraid. Its pot luck whether a perfect shot is placed and how long a course lasts.
As long as you keep writing like you do you will make people like myself who tend to sit on the fence and see both sides and not be blinkered hope and pray that the ban will be lifted.
It saddens me to read that a superior intellect like yourself can't see that whether a deer is coursed or a mis placed shot will cause different degrees of stress...... And that is a fact not an opinion.
One is the result of a mistake, error, miscalculation etc. That every conscientious ethical stalker does everything in his power to eliminate. Regrettable but inevitable if you do enough these things occasionally happen. Where as the other is a deliberate, pre-calculated, intentional act that repeats itself every time the act is committed.That is also a fact not an opinion.
Maybe i should apologise for calling you a c**t as well as you are obviously passionate about your sport but i'm a firm believer in live and let live and for all to enjoy there chosen hunting sport. Thats something we will never see eye to eye on.
If i could add i really think you would get on better if you stopped mentioning how pleased you are with the ban, we all know your views and do you really think we need to hear it at every opportunity? Its this blatant two fingers up and "na na nana na" attitude thats getting peoples backs up!!...
