Congress Goes After

Rep. Davis has introduced an anti-Internet hunting bill to Congress.

Rep. Davis said “Why should someone be able to point, click and kill?” Clearly, hunters should be required to point, pull trigger and kill.

He continued “fair chase is a basic element of hunting.” I’m not sure how “fair” the chase is when hunters have high velocity projectiles that can kill an animal from hundreds of yards and when hunters camp out on stands well off the ground. It might be worth noting that conducted its first Internet hunt last weekend but the hunter came up empty. Too bad he had such an unfair advantage over the animals.

The president of the Humane Society criticized Internet hunting because it “would distance the hunter entirely from the act of killing.” And how does that differ from a meal at McDonalds….?
