Hunters are very offended by these prohibition acts of gun control. Not all people use these fire arms for a defensive item but to put food on their families’ tables. Guns have always been around in today’s society; they have saved our country and made it what it is today. Taking away rights not only hurt what defense we have with them but it takes away the sport and enjoyment of those who hunt (1). Taking away from the second amendment and not having the freedom of using guns as we please or when they are in need is not fair.
Wild Law was a term first construed by author Cormac Cullinan to refer to human laws that consist of Earth’s jurisprudence. Politics, legal theory, physics, and ancient wisdom are foretold in Cullinan’s book Wild Law to inform and recognize a movement of nature’s rights just as human rights impacted the twenty first century. Cormac Cullinan illustrates our ability to transform our systematically industrialize society to enable our rediscovery of human’s practical role in the Earth’s system. Humanities survival depends on Earth’s health and our transformation of governance systems so that humans are reunited with the ecological matrix which includes biological perseverance and diversity. Instead of dominating nature our actions must be consistent
Hunting to me is something special. Not only are you putting food on the table but you are making some very good memories. One of the best memories I have is my very first hunt, it was my dad and I we were in the blind for maybe thirty mintues and a little six point buck walks and looks around then goes back into the tall grass then my dad rattles the antlers and he comes out and boom that was the end of it. It was an amazing expericence and every since then I have never stopped hunting.
The question of the necessity of zoos is extremely controversial nowadays. There are many people who advocate for replacing them with sanctuaries as they believe money spent on keeping wild animals captive might have been used for conserving them in wild. Others are concerned that zoos serve not only for people's pleasure but for preserving and keeping populations that otherwise would go extinct. There are sufficient arguments for both points of view, expressed in various articles that are dedicated to the significant topic. “Do elephants belong in zoos?” by Jeffrey P. Cohn and “Eight reasons why zoos are good for conservation” by James Borrell are the examples of such articles. The opinions expressed there are mostly similar for they state
I do agree with the U.S. Federal government’s management plan for wild horses. Based on the reading, the U.S. Federal government had the best interest of wild horses in mind when declaring this act. The act protects horses from humans by making wild horses components of the public land they occupy. The Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act prevents humans from slaughtering wild horses. The act also considers the natural behaviors of horses and how these behaviors will affect the longevity of the wild horse population. It considers horse’s tendency to overgraze which would deplete the land, leading to starvation. Other animals overpopulate areas and are hunted to reduce their population and maintain the land they inhibit, but the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act recognizes the importance of horses on American life and mandates a beneficial response to this problem. The excess horses are eventually adopted, providing safety for horses and enjoyment for humans.
Hunting creates a national economic impact of about $61 billion and has supported over seven-hundred billion jobs. Hunting also brings in about $1.4 billion in state tax revenues and $1.7 billion in federal income taxes. Hunting isn’t a cheap past time, in order to even attempt to get an animal you must first purchase a license every season. Hunting is well regulated between the federal and state governments in order to prevent over hunting. The problem that can come up is illegal hunting and poaching. Poaching and illegal hunting can cause an off set in the ecosystem by overhunting animals. When one animal population decline drastically, other organisms are affected too. The decline in native predators is the main cause for overpopulation of animals like deer. Deer overpopulation has led to rapid decrease vegetation life causing other animals to be put at risk. Removing predators from the food web disrupts the entire balance of an
Hunting is seen by some present-day people as crooked and dishonorable, while it is really the act of protecting the health of animals for the future. Hunting is a simple and beneficial way to help animals in ways that some people may not understand. What people may not know is that “...the majority of the American public supports hunting even if they don’t personally participate, with about 79 percent of adult Americans nationwide indicating they approve of legal hunting” (“Understanding Hunting”). This percentage of people know the true value of hunting and the betterment it has on our world today. Hunting is a very logical and beneficial way to help animals, along with the hunters themselves. It is also a way for those
Bowfishing is a fast-growing, but little known sport that is seeing a large trend occur as people are coming from all around to enjoy bowfishing tournaments. Bowfishing tournaments bring the best hunters from around the globe to engage in a series of events to find the best shooters, fastest shooters, and more. Bowfishing is exciting and enticing, but many local residents of the bowfishing tournaments aren’t sharing the same love as the hunters.
When it comes to protecting what he believes is right, Mr. Young will use false information and name calling to get what he wants (C-SPAN 2017). He even resorted to profanities when met with opposition, declaring “that’s the most bunch of bull shit I’ve ever heard” in response to Representative Jared Polis’ comment on the absurdity of HJR 69 allowing inhumane predator hunting practices (Ruskin 2017). Young claims the Obama-era rule is unlawful because of a small paragraph within Note 25 of the Alaska Statehood Compact, which states: the United States will transfer jurisdiction of Federal lands in Alaska to the state, so long as they are used for conservation of the lands and the flora and fauna that live there (House Republican…2017). This line of reasoning is flawed and forgets the overarching purpose of the statehood act, which is to include Alaska as a state within the union. This means Alaska agrees to surrender its territory to the United States, thereby making the federal government the governing body residing over the state. Within this law it explicitly grants management over Alaska lands
Have you ever thought about which animals are near extinction or endangerment ? Have you looked them up? How many are left? Which ones have been removed? Do you know why they are going endangered? Have you heard what a dodo is? Well yeah it’s extinct. Do you know why? Do you know why it’s important to save an endangered animal?
One of the best days of my life was when we went deer hunting in South Dakota with my dad, brother, uncle and two cousins, but before I tell you about my trip let me tell you how it started. We left early in the morning to head to South Dakota where my cousin Jacob, who had just got a job as Game warden in Custer State Park, was taking us deer hunting. We got as far as Fargo, North Dakota when my cousin Keith asked my dad where our license were. Then to our surprise we forgot them back at home. We were lucky enough to have my two aunts and mom bring us the license because they were going to Fargo that day anyways for a girls shopping day. They just had to leave a little earlier. So we just waited in a parking lot until they
Imagine you live in a world where there are no plants, forest, animals, or oceans all there is in where these things us to be is concrete, landfills of garbage, and buildings. This is what will transpire if we do not protect or wildlife, wildlife conservation is a very important situation as it helps keeps plants and animals off the endangered list. According to the World Wild Life organization there are twenty-six endangered animals and twenty-one critically endangered animals this is very overwhelming as animals are an important part of our environment and ecosystem. With human population increasing at an alarming rate, with the growing rate of humans there is going to be less land for animals and plants, more man-made pollution and plastic debris will go into the oceans, lakes, and streams.
There is also taxes on ammunition and firearms which also benefit the cause, annually millions of dollars are dispersed to State conservation efforts and wildlife management programs. Without funding from these purchases many of the active programs that protect millions of wild animals and habitats would not be able to
National Wildlife Federation is a wildlife organization founded by Ding Darling. The Wildlife Federation works to protect the ecosystem that is crucial to the native wildlife. The National Wildlife Federation took part in the passing of clean water act, clean air act, and endangered species act. In 2007 the water resources development act was successfully passed thanks to the help of the Wildlife Federation.
The majority of the amount of animals that are killed in the wild are because of hunters. Humans usually kill these animals for accessories such as fur, meat, and other body parts. Creatures in the wild are almost always being hunted, whether it’s by a predator or a hunter. Law enforcers have tried to eliminate the amount of hunters by not allowing road building or hunting in certain areas. This definitely helped a lot, but still doesn’t fix the problem with predators. Predators are like robbers of their prey’s life. Once one is caught, predators never let go. While some may argue that being in a zoo will affect an animal’s hunting skills, it’s not always the best plan to let endangered animals free in the wild. It stands to reason that society should continue keeping our animals safe from danger in
