Moderate and legal hunting needs encouraging

Since the beginning, hunting has not brought a negative meaning but it has been considered as a method for people to maintain their lives. So far, it can not be denied that hunting has received a lot of criticism but in moderation and with a clear purpose, this action has positive effects on people and real life.

  • Hunting, a method of meeting human’s food demand.
  • In the past, when the earth was still in the Stone Age, prehistoric humans had only two main activities to sustain their lives including hunting and gathering. This is a natural economy in which most or all of the food sources were obtained from the gathering and gathering of available plant species (usually berries, bush berries, tubers ...) and hunting wild animals.Therefore, in prehistoric times, hunting was an essential human activity.

    There is a fact that today, some parts of people, ethnic groups or tribes keep living like hunter-gatherers, even though the numbers have decreased due to a majority joining the agricultural community.

  • Hunting, a way of controlling animals that have negative effects on humans

  • Pest control refers to the regulations or management of a species with a high potential to become a pest to human health, the environment or the economy.

    In some agricultural areas in the United States, farmers are facing the situation that Macaca mulatta, a brown monkey, frequently damage their crops and disturb the lives of the people that seriously affect society.

    Moreover, experts around the world have warned that today, about 70% of zoonotic diseases originate from wildlife and this has been clearly seen through pandemics as HIV, Ebola, H5N1, SARS, smallpox virus, or Marburg virus in Europe.

    Therefore, in these cases, hunters play an important role in protecting food resources, supporting social security and reducing zoonotic disease risk.

  • Hunting, an ideal opportunity to get in touch with nature
  • In order to become a successful hunter, hunting lovers need to spend some time learning about animals, sometimes in hunting season, it’s necessary to take a week in the forest to observe their habits. This has imperceptibly given hunters plenty of time to mingle with nature, breathe smog-free air.

  • Hunting, a way to improve the health
  • There is no doubt that a successful hunter must ensure good health, both physically and mentally. As mentioned, sometimes, hunters need to spend a lot of time in wilderness areas where necessities may be lacking. This requires them to have good enough health to adapt to the environment.

    In addition, through this hunting activity, they are also trained in patience and calm in many cases as well as the skills to handle urgent situations in time.

    ”I do not hunt for the joy of killing but for the joy of living, and the inexpressible pleasure of mingling my life however briefly, with that of a wild creature that I respect, admire and value."
