What do you think about hunting? Can you be a hunter?

I prefer fishing myself, but mainly because it’s cheap, easy, I own the equipment, and I know how to do it.

I’d love to go deer hunting if I had the time, the equipment, and someone to teach me how to do it. I’ll put that on my bucket list, right between “solo road trip on motorcycle” and “camping in the Badlands.” That’s the bucket list of things I might actually do one day. The realistic bucket list.

I want to share my hobby. I'm a birdwatcher. I even bought a binocular for this purpose (https://www.atncorp.com/smart-hd-binocular). I like long walks and always come back home full of excitement.With my device I can record videos and make pictures, it is very cool!

Did you mean to ask if they thought it was wrong to hunt? I don't have problems killing for food. However I'm lazy, so I'll let the animal factory deliver it a local grocery store. I'm more of a deal hunter anyway.


Using all of my sick time...

Hunting used to be more popular in Japan, but as the young people have moved off to the cities, and the older people in the country are dying off, there are fewer people hunting anymore.

About 250,000 people in Japan have permits for rifles and shotguns, and I visited an interesting gun shop in Okachimachi (next to Akihabara) a few years ago. Hunting in the countryside used to be a way to help feed families, as food is still expensive in Japan.

But the decrease in hunting has led to a great increase in wildlife. In Japan human beings have always been the top predator in the food system, as the country has a large number of people relative to it's size. But animals like deer are now so abundant that there isn't enough for them to eat in the winter, so the government organizes culls to lower the population.
