I get so frustrated with people who are obviously capable of walking, hiking, climbing and crawling, but just plain ol’ lazy! It’s called a “hunt”, not a “kill”; so get off your hinny and hunt!
The anti’s love lazy hunters because it allows them to state their case claiming ‘he just drove up, got out of the truck and shot that unsuspecting animal and it’s not fair’. I have to agree (on some levels) because let’s consider poachers; they’re lazy… they’ll even shoot at a native-game animal at night with no concern for state regulations/laws, cut the antlers and leave the carcass to rot!
I like to think about how the Native American Indians or Bushmen of Southern Africa hunt. They hunt methodically with purpose considering ‘if I were the animal, where would I be’. This exciting style of hunting makes it so incredibly rewarding when you do connect. Think about it; you might have a 120 B&C Class whitetail on your wall –if you’re like me, you remember every detail about that hunt and even if an animal isn’t of ‘superior trophy quality’, you still recall the challenge of the hunt and how hard you worked for that animal… not to mention the bounty of meat he provided you and your family with.
Where there are hunters who have been immobilized for one reason or another, and such hunting is absolutely necessary, remember that if you’re fortunate enough to have the blessing of mobility, have pride in yourself and respect for our hunting heritage and pursue that animal in a way that honors the hunt.
Besides being physically handicapped, why would a hunter need a mode of transportation (truck, ATV, helicopter, etc…) to hunt?
