THe jfk game is no skin of my nose but this ..............is sickening

A Texan hunter wants to give computer gamers the chance to kill things for real with the click of a mouse.



John Lockwood has already hooked up guns to the internet to let people shoot targets on his Texas ranch.



Now he wants to let fans shoot live game through his website, live-shot.com, reports the New York Post.



Mr Lockwood intends to have the remote hunts running early next year with virtual hunters paying up to £40 an hour.



They will be be able to use their computer mouse to operate a camera and rifle pointed at a game feeder set up to attract animals.



Hunters would have to pay more if they kill an animal - up to £1,000 for a buck deer, although there is no guarantee they will see any game.



"I've gotten hate mail calling me a sick, despicable redneck," said Mr Lockwood, 39, a lifelong hunter.



"But the technology for hunters keeps evolving, from bowhunting to high-powered rifles. This is just another step forward, another tactical advantage."



Kevin Armstrong, president of the New York Bowhunters Association, was not impressed.



"Sitting remotely and pushing a button to kill another animal is nothing but perverse 21st-century slaughter," he said.
