My step-father-in-law is always trying to get me to "go out deer hunting" with him. I try to explain to him that I don't like hunting, but he just doesn't get it. I guess the concept of an American male not liking hunting or sports is completely foreign to him. I say to him, "I don't like hunting", and he just stares at me blankly for a few seconds, and then asks me again when i'll go.

Stereotypical female equivalent: Its the same as my mom asking me to "go shopping" with her at the mall. She can't feature that I find no enjoyable social aspects to this pastime. In deer hunting at least you're outside.

What gets me is that these people think that we're just fooling ourselves. As if, if they could actually get us out there doing it, we'd realise that we really did like it all along. As if it's hardwired or something.

Well, i'm all for people enjoying sports and hunting. I just sort of resent the expectation that I should like it too. Me being in the south probably brings on more of it, though.

I'm not a fan of hunting, but I do like some good venison. And I support those that wish to hunt...IF they are going to make good use of the kill (e.g. meat).

We're doing them a favor by removing as many of them from the planet as possible. So quit yer bitchin', spray some urine on yourself, and go kill Bambi dammit.

Okay, so here's my lame defense of deer hunting. I took about twenty years off from it because it really didn't please me to kill, for no good reason. In that twenty years the Pennsylvania Game Commission continued their mismanagement of the deer herd to the point where the doe to buck ratio in my area approached 20 to 1 and the deer density increased to the point where the introduction of Chronic Wasting Disease from West of the Mississippi could be catastrophic. The high doe / buck ratio results in late breeding because the few buck can't service all the doe in a timely manner. This produces late fawns who go into the winter undersize and if they survive are scrawny and unhealthy, ripe for disease. The played out bucks also fail to carry weight into the winter setting them up for health problems like the late fawns. In Pennsylvania the anti-hunting ethic has a firm foothold due to anti-science enviromentalism imposed by teachers on their students, so we have fewer hunters and the slob / respectful hunter ratio is out of wack. We could solve our problems by re-introducing mountain lions but thats a rant for another day involving questions of what really constitutes a wild system and its stability/ sustainability and I've been reading Poul Anderson Sci-Fi and he was a genius.

Here, ya go, put some high heels on then go walk on the ice. You might want to keep in mind that the feet of a deer aren't soft and malleable like the human foot. Additionally, they don't apply anything to their feet like we do to aid in walking.
Your statement is like "Well officer, my car has four tires, why does it slip on the ice?" And I bet that humans never fall on the ice. Jesus christ...
