I went to Google, clicked on "video" on the toolbar at the top, and entered<br><br><br><br>
+hunting +cruelty<br><br><br><br>
in the box where you enter your search terms. I'm not sure exactly what you had in mind, and I didn't watch any of them. Several videos had to do with hunting in the United Kingdom (I assumed you're in the USA), a few had to do with whaling (related, but a different topic). I only got 4 pages of links to vodeos; I would have expected more.

i can't stand people who hunt, i'm from the u.s. and when i lived in mississippi everyone hunted and always wanted me to go but i wouldn't, they would ask why and i would say something like, well i don't really see the sport in shooting and animal while theyre eating or something and like really far away. people are dumb, good luck w/ trying to change those peoples minds, it would be like telling a farmer thats its bad to de-head a chicken. (which basically they just grab it by its neck and pop off its head.). gl though.

Some are just information, others directly relevant. None are PETA.

Go on youtube.com and search on phrases like "hunting", "deer kill", and "kill shot". Countless hunters have posted graphic videos of themselves shooting and even wounding animals.<br><br><br><br>
Some would demand these videos be removed, but I think they should stay. They are one of the few ways for nonhunters to see the unvarnished truth. TV hunting shows depict romanticized versions of hunting, and never show the animal as he/she is first struck. Let the hunters implicate themselves. If more people turn against hunting, these animals will have not died in vain.<br><br><br><br>
Plus, it's much harder to label these films as propoganda, as they are what hunters themselves have chosen to share of their "recreation."

The RSPCA have quite a good persuasive one, I'm sorry I don't know what it's called but by coincidence I watched it today in an RE lesson.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7XwmI9SSOc" target="_blank">www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7XwmI9SSOc</a> <<< Deer Hunter Gets Owned! Muuhahaha!<br><br><br><br>
I think in a way this video is still educational don't you think? Basicly don't F around with animals and see how man reacts when the tables are turned on him.

I saw a video the other day. It was horrible! A cougar was hunting a deer, a little baby deer, it was such a cute little deer. But, anyway, this big cat was sneaking around the trees as this cute little deer was minding her own business eating on the forest floor and all of a sudden this cougar jumps on the deer biting and scratching at her neck taking the cute little thing down with it's claws sank into her flesh. Then, the cougar had the deer by the throat crushing the little deers windpipe. You could see the fear and pain in the little deers eyes as it fought for life for fifteen minutes, even crying outloud for it's mother who ran away. It was horrible. Poor deer.<br><br><br><br>
I saw another video. Human Hunters. They were preparing for their hunt at someones home using No scent soap so they could go into the forest without being detected. They were real carefull not to wear their hunting clothes to the woods and kept them in scent protecting packages so the deer couldn't smell them in the woods. Then these guys sneaked very quietly into the woods and quietly waited for an adult deer to come by. Several young, cute baby deer and Does walked by and a few young bucks but the hunters let them go and remained undetected even taking pictures of the cute deer but they didn't hurt them like the cougar. Then finally a big buck was spotted walking towards them and one of the hunters got ready to kill it with a bow and arrow. He was very quiet and when the arrow got released there was barely a noise and when the hunter did release the arrow he didn't move or make a noise but sat there quietly and watched where the deer went. The deer jumped and ran away then stopped wobbled and fell. still the hunter just waited for like 20 minutes then walked over to the deer with tears in his eyes because he was sorry for the deer but knew that in order for life to live life has to die. One thing he did know is that the deer that died here had lived a long and healthy life and much more did not die by the teeth and claws of the cougar but peacefully and with dignity.<br><br>
Now I'm sure you people know that I am the hunter. I will tell you right now that no animal I ever killed felt much and never went through what the cougar did and does to Fawns.<br><br>
It's OK to be a VegHead I aplaud (sp) you, I respect you, you have the right to eat or not to eat whatever you want I back you in your decision 100%. We live in a great and free society. We are not at war with eachother, we should never be at war with ourselves, ever. We should find pride in our differences and be proud of our diversity.<br><br>
I extend the branch of peace to you. Please respect true hunters who respect the forest and protect it from sick poachers and others who would burn her down. We are the ones who live in the forest. When squirrels come withinn inches of me to check me out I'm wild also. When I watch deer stroll by I am wild. When the cougar doesn't see me while I watch him I am wild. I am one of the wild animals who live in the forest the difference is I don't eat my prey while it breaths.

I have never seen a video on it. All I have to do is look out my window during hunting season. My neighbors a big hunters and hang their deer in the tree in front of their house. I am horrified when I see it and do all I can to keep my children from seeing it.<br><br><br><br>
I moved to the country to be able to enjoy nature and see the animals. This is not at all what I thought I would be seeing<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I live in Michigan which is a big time hunting state. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> The problem is the hunters scare the deer and the deer run out on the road and get hit by cars. This is common knowledge around here and hunters can't deny it. Come hunting season there are injured/dead deer all over the road.<br><br><br><br>
Since a horrid experience I had staying with an older severely injured fawn while waiting 2 hours for police to come shoot the poor dear, I now keep a heavy wool blanket and gun in the van. It was the most horrid experience of my life but I am so glad God nudged me that day to look out the window, cause according to a neighbor in that area, that fawn had been laying there for 3 days. His mother was in a field nearby watching. That fawn is in heaven with God now. I should say this fawn's deathw as not during hunting season, but still, it made me more aware and caused me to act by being more prepared in case I come across injured wildlife again. The fawn's 2 back legs were amputated at the heels. It was non-rehabilitatable.<br><br><br><br>
Perhaps you could look for videos of deer that have been hit by cars and did not die right away?

Deer are not hit by cars as a result of hunting.<br><br><br><br>
The months of late Oct. thru mid-late Dec. are what's known as the rut, or mating season. During this period all deer are on the move to new feeding/breeding areas, bucks are looking for and chasing hot does and are practically oblivious to their surroundings or their own safety.<br><br>
It is near immpossible to know when any paricular area will show full rut signs, as various factors contribute to the onset of behavior such as:temperature, moon phase, available food, past monthly conditions leading into the rut, and many others.

I know this thread is old but that's what I was going to suggest. It is so common for hunters not to kill an animal instantly and those videos prove it. (Not that it'd make it acceptable if they did kill the animals instantly).

I have seen injured deer (hit by car) first hand plenty of times. It is not fun to watch and I feel bad approaching them it scares them like nothing else (they think their going to be eaten) and they try to get away but they usually cannot. The winter before last we had a nice buck with a almost torn off rear leg come onto our property. The game warden was called. It took 6 shots and 15 mins for it to die and it was a horrible death. The deer are so pumped on adrenaline and that mixed with the rut its just insane the amount of power they have. I don't know who would want to video tape it...

After viewing several of your videos I would have to respectfully indicate my opposition to SHARKs condemning hunting on the grounds that it is needs cruelty to animals. I believe if you ask most hunters, myself included, they have the upmost respect for the animals that they pursue. While the harvesting of various game animals may seem distasteful to some the fact is that hunters and hunting is/are necessary to the perpetuation of many wildlife species. Hunters provide vital dollars for habitat preservation and restoration through the purchase of tags and licenses as well as through dollars/time they donate to various conservation organizations some of these include; Ducks Unlimited, Delta Waterfowl, National Turkey Federation, Quail Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Quality Deer management Organization, etc. All of which are primarily composed of avid hunters. Also it is important to note that the animals that hunters harvest are based on quotas that are carefully developed by the Fish and Wildlife Department to best promote the healthiest possible heard/flock/population possible depending on species type and geographic location. I realize that this sounds self conflicting but it is true. Hunters harvesting animals help the species as a whole. Take for example the state of the deer heard the populated Brown County Park in Indiana prior to the facility being opened to controlled deer reduction hunts. The park was for years off limits to hunting. Before the herd started to be controlled through hunting the deer that lived in the park had become so overpopulated due to a lack of predation. With the deer numbers left unchecked the deer literally began to eat themselves out of house and home. Back then if you were to walk through the woods in the park you would see that there was very little vegetation on the bottom 5 to 6 feet of the forest environment. This lack of vegetation was due to the fact the deer numbers had grown so great that the deer had eaten almost every piece of digestible vegetation that they could reach. As a result of this malnutrition the average size and weight of deer in the park dropped dramatically and the overall health of the herd was on the decline as the deer, in their weakened condition, were significantly more prone to disease. The deer were starving and dying. The solution to this problem came in the form of controlled hunts which allowed hunters to come in and harvest some of the deer so that the stress the deer numbers put on the habitat could be relieved. After a couple years of these hunts the herd numbers got under control and the health of the herd and their environment improved. Today, thanks to the controlled hunts, the park is back to its natural state and the health of the deer that inhabit the park are excellent. While this is a great example of how hunting and hunters can be beneficial to the wildlife that we all enjoy it is important to note that if the hunts were to stop that the state of the heard would revert back to the same unhealthy state as before and the deer that live there would be doomed to suffer from hunger and disease. I understand that you care about wildlife very much but dont demonize what quite probably is the largest group of wildlife supporters.
