Argumentative Essay: Banning Party Hunting

Superior Essays
Outlawing Party Hunting What if party hunting in Minnesota became illegal? Some hunters would be glad to have party hunting illegal. Many hunters want to have more deer and less hunters in the woods. Still others want to hunt in big parties and shoot all the deer. There is always an argument on banning party hunting in Minnesota. Because so many people who hunt in parties purchase a tag for non-hunters and just use it as an excuse to shoot more deer, party hunting should be eliminated. If Minnesota outlawed party hunting we would have twice the number of deer than what we have now. Outlawing party hunting would have a positive impact on the numbers of deer that would last a few years. For example, Minnesota 's deer numbers have dropped dramatically …show more content…
All the hunters I know hunt ethically and they believe party hunting is a wrong thing to do. Most fathers, mothers or grandparents want to teach their kid to hunt the right way, party hunting is not the right path for teaching a child. Setting sanctuaries on your land and not going back there will help the number of deer you have on your property. For example, if you set five acres of your property aside for the deer as a sanctuary you could have multiple numbers of deer in there. Party hunters are not increasing the number of deer they are decreasing the numbers at a high and fast rate. If the party hunters at least set up a sanctuary for the deer and had a crop for them to survive in it would help the least amount for them. If party hunting was banned it would help regrow our declining numbers of deer in Minnesota. Party hunting needs to be outlawed because of the damage of habitat when the hunters ram through the country side. Party hunters ruin the habitat for deer and all the other animals. For example, party hunters sometimes use trucks or four wheelers to chase deer out of the woods. In some groups of party hunters they will have five to twelve hunters on a five acre property to make sure that no deer gets away. This shows that they are desperate to shoot all the deer on the property. Minnesota needs to outlaw party hunting before we lose the white tailed deer. If party hunters set an area where they can not be in it would even help the deer a small amount. Party hunting ruins the environment and pressures animals to move out of the

    We kindly asked them to leave, although they probably went down the road to someone else’s woods. Not all hunters are this way, but many try and use this and similar techniques to increase the area they hunt so they may see more deer. Poaching seems to be rare, but some hunters brag about getting away with it. With a lack of evidence, it is hard to prove they do poach.

    They live in remote areas of North America and Eurasia. If they ever became overpopulated they could very easily kill a ton of people, since there would be too many of them to handle. It would be hard for the human race to kill the wolves again if they are killing humans. Yes, the wolves would help us keep the deer population down but many people rely on the deer meat to survive because they do not have the money to buy food for their families. Also while hunters are hunting for food, they do not want to worry about watching for wolves.…

    Another reason culls are not an effective and an inhumane solution to control deer populations is the sheer idea of its inhumanity by people. It can leave communities stained from the enormous amounts of massacred deer, can become a hazard for public safety, and it places a lot of stress on the deer populations. One article states that the violence and blood that comes out of such brutal culls leaves terrible impressions on the reputation of the town (“Deer killed…”). When communities announce that they are attempting to eliminate hundreds of deer, it seems awful to go after a defenseless animal. When using lethal weapons, some deer are unable to be retrieved from where they were killed.…

The organization, IDA also known as In Defense of Animals, believes that hunting causes problems for the environment and for the deer that are being killed, while other people argue that hunting causes no problems for deer.

    After their rights were stripped, as of April 2016 over 4,200 wolves have been slaughtered (Predator Defense) People believe that without the wolves to prey on species everything will be perfect in the ecosystem. However, Edwin Wollert in his article on the eradication of wolves proves that this is false. One example is that people like seeing the elk and bison, so park managers kill off wolves and other animals that prey on elk and bison. But then the elk increased in such high numbers, due to not being hunted by wolves, that they consumed all the vegetation they could reach, including the trees used by beavers. The beavers were the ones managing the lakes and streams in the park, and when their trees were gone, they also had to find a new place to inhabit.…

    One thing that the anti hunters do not realize is how much an animal suffers from these diseases. If the animals are hunted, shot, and put to their death faster and less miserably then any diseases would. Overpopulation when there is lack of food like the wolves have right now with all their food sources migrating will cause starving and a slow and painful death. The lack of food will also cause fighting between members of the wolf pack. The idea that since wolves are not hunted other animals should not be hunted is a terrible idea due to the stress and horrible things that can happen to…

    Being an outsider to the hunts pose many problems with mainly families and landowners surrounding the hunting land used by dog hunters and their clubs. Families that live in and around the hunting land have a front row view of how reckless and dangerous the hunters can get. Seeing a vehicle flying up a dirt road would probably frighten anyone. Families will rarely let their young ones out to play in the front yard while the hunting is taking place. A person never knows when a vehicle accident can happen.…
