    I've posted those surveys here previously. It's been discussed before. This is not a controversial claim.

    Are you familiar with the expression "sea lioning?"

    No, you've made the same claim on numerous occasions and each time your asked to provide a source and you have never provided anything to substantiates your claim....

    You instead, like now, try to divert away from the question with nonsense ..

    By devolving into that tactic you’ve revealed the bankruptcy of your position.

    Thanks for making my point for me.

    So your Ethics are right and mine are wrong??? Who are you to judge? Who made you God. I would beg to differ.
    Who said anything about shooting illegal game?
    I would say people like you are the issue.

    So you post surveys done in the US.. HaHa......largely irrelevant in comparison to the the views of Canadians..like their views about gun ownership, they differ greatly than Canadians....but you knew that

    One of those surveys even cautions: "Caution should be used in interpreting these results for countries other than the U.S. because the system of wildlife management is very different in other countries."

    But you could argue the overall survey results are comparable....Sport Hunters don't have huge public support.

    As I pointed in an earlier post...hunting for meat means "sustainability" ...and you disagreed...but your posted survey agrees with exactly what I had posted.

    "The highest levels of public support for hunting occur when we ask specifically about hunting for reasons related to historic hunting for survival: 85 percent of adult Americans approve of hunting for the meat and 85 percent approve of hunting to protect humans from harm.[13] While majorities also support hunting for reasons related to wildlife management and animal control, approval starts to drop dramatically for reasons not related to survival"
    The actual results of how the public support is for hunters in Canada rest with the fact that few hunters here hunt for survival or protection....support for 'Sport Hunting' here garners a much lower level of support and Trophy hunting the lowest levels of support.

    Guys who go as a 'group' to Norther Ontario to hunt moose for a week, spend about $1K and might come home with 50-60 lbs of meat each, if they are successful. Many come home empty hand year after year. Pretty hard to be argue it's about the meat.. HaHa...

    Your comment that "80% of Canadians support hunting meat" is misleading without a disclaimer of what that really means.

    In general terms, Hunting these days isn't supported by the vast percentage of Canadians or apparently Americans either

    I also posted a comparable Canadian survey. But don't let that keep you from your usual dishonest crap.
