Hunters are psychopaths, cruel, heartless, barbaric, brutal, sickos humans that torture and murder defenceless animals for pleasure, fun, sport or trophy. Break my heart, they are teaching children's to be cruel, barbaric, brutal, heartless. Shame on them, and shame on the cruel, heartless governments that allow the sickos hunters to murder the poor animals, it is about money, Hunters licence, Stop the massacre of coyotes, wolves and their pups, stop the murder of animals.

Nik Epperson GUESS YOU KNOW THAT THE REPUBLICANS HAVE NO MERIT!!! RIGHT ON POINT. THEY ARE FULL OF INSULTS. SARAH PALIN IS A GREAT EXAMPLE. SHE HUNTS BECAUSE SHE IS THINKS IT'S COOL, MEANTIME SHE'S AN IDIOT. SHE WOULD CLUB THE SEALS IF NOT FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF BREAKING A NAIL. IT'S JUST A FORM OF OBJECTIFICATION. SHE'S LIKE YOU NIK, KILLS FOR EGO POWER. MACHO FOOLS WITH GUNS LOVE THEIR TOYS OF DESTRUCTION. YOU PROBABLY HAVE VIDEO GAMES THAT ARE OF KILLING TOO. YOU ARE PROBABLY A REDNECK FROM MICHIGAN.

It was O.K. to hunt YEARS ago when it was a matter of survival - but it should not be considered a sport - what sick and BORING people they must be to want to kill an innocent animal - out of all the wonderful things one can do with their spare time - even reading a book - is so more entertaining...HUnting SHOULD BE BANNED - NO ANIMAL SHOULD BE USED TO BE SHOT AT - TRAPPED - KILLED.......THEY ARE GIFTS FROM GOD AND SHOULD BE NO MAN'S 'TROPHY'.

First off... to spout from the "book" cannot be taken as Fact. for we know very well how corrupt the church is today, imagine how it was centuries ago. You know those books were tampered with throughout the ages, to go along with power hungry elders who wanted the people to believe what they tell them.... 2nd, I highly doubt, that God would condone, Killing a sentient living being, that feels love, fear, happiness, sadness, and grief over a lost loved one. We were all given Free Will,...

We were all given Free Will, I would think, we are here to learn what is and is not morally right. And Killing a living being for Sport is NOT morally right. plain and simple.

Job 12:7-10 - "But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In
His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind".

Why are you attacking me? Do you want to push people who have similar mindset as you away? I've never stated this before in any other petition. I've signed many petitions. You don't need a word processor to see that there's incomplete sentences all over the place in this document. It looks very unprofessional.

I mean I agree with this in theory and I feel like it most places there is absolutely no need for it but there are still people in remote areas of alaska and the north west that rely on hunting as a means of a survival, they don't hunt they don't eat, now whether or not you agree with it is a different story but this cannot work at least without some exemptions.

Dawn Groth

I agree with that. In some areas of indigenous people, it is still a necessity of life. This petition is not targeting them. For they do not call themselves "sportsmen"

i dont see anywhere that there are any exemptions it appears that this is a petition to make hunting illegal in general, just because they said hunters or "sportsmen" it didnt say anything about only making hunting for sport illegal

This is only a first step... to show our numbers frankly, let them see how many people do not agree with what is being done in our world. when you come right down to actually creating Bills and laws to be signed, that is when you get to do the exceptions.

Right! Grocery stores...but the meat you eat from the store probably lived a life of hell before it ended up hanging from a hook in a slauterhouse! Have you seen how the poor animals are treated in there? That doesn't mean that I think hunting is right! I don't. But we do have to figure out how to treat these poor creatures humanely!

Yes people, let's eliminate hunting so that all animal populations can grow grossly out of proportion. Then, these animals will only have to worry about outgrowing where they can live( they will now reside in your yard and on our streets) and they will run out of food, because there is nothing to keep their population in check. So, now they can be killed by cars(resulting in billions of $'s in insurance claims and human deaths) and they will starve to death(which is much more humane)....

Wow, I don't believe it someone with some common sense posted in this section. I don't hunt myself but I do know it is a vital factor in this society. I am however an avid fisherman and if I catch it I eat it. For those here that think hunters go out and kill something for the fun of it, haven't been hunting much. Deer season is in the Winter and most hunter sit in a deer stand in the freezing cold and hope that a deer will come along so they can get a clear shot and more then one meal. Many...

Many people like deer meat over beef and you can't buy it in the market. The next thing you know every vegan in the country will want us to stop raising cattle, pig, chickens, sheep or any other animal. Man is a carnivore and as time has gone his teeth and body have conformed to the difference in diet just like other animals have evolved to their environments.

Hit the nail right on the head, James. This is why far-reaching decisions have to be based on logic, not emotion. Some days I wish someone had smacked Walt Disney right upside the head the day he approved the script for "Bambi".

Fin triste et tragique pour ces animaux magnifiques et intelligents. Quant aux tueurs, qui s'appellent "sportifs" - allons donc!- je déteste leur intolérance, leur brutalié, leurs mensonges, leur hystérie, leur manque de respect pour la vie sauvage, leur mépris de l'immense majorité d'Américains plus humains. Par dessus tout, j'ai horreur de leur destruction de la vie sauvage américaine. Ils ne méritent pas de meilleur sort pour eux-mêmes.

sportsman how is it that one can refer to themselves as a sportsman. sport means using your body, in a human to human competitive game. not sitting on yur ass in the woods, or a truck waiting for some helpless animal, so yu can kill it. I wonder what these so called "sportsmen" would do if someone was lost in the woods. I'm sure they would let a human suffer in the woods, and be entertained by it. Men that take pleasure in hunting animals and making them suffer as much as possible, will do...

Sportsman are dangerous and deranged people, with a sick sadistic agenda to create and watch suffering. All these missing people in the world makes you wonder what happened to them. Perhaps they had the misfortune of being dumped in the woods and hunted, for entertainment, and suffering. As a society we really need to think about this. There's a fine line between watching animals suffer and doing the same to humans. THINK ABOUT IT!, these so called sportsman are very dangerous to society.

Just a heads up. If you, or anyone for that matter, are going to discuss definitions, at least look the definition up before blabbing false information (as so many of your kind does). Merriam- Webster defines a sportsmen as "a person who engages in sports (as hunting or fishing)". http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sportsmen. I will not spend countless words explaining why you folks are ignorant, but I will say this, I have dedicated my education and career to wildlife conservation...

I will not spend countless words explaining why you folks are ignorant, but I will say this, I have dedicated my education and career to wildlife conservation and what you people say appalls me. NONE of you are wildlife biologists or wildlife professionals, and if you are, I pity the institution you studied at. I hunt. I grew up hunting and it is an extreme passion of mine. I understand the emotion involved in taking an animal, but people must understand not only the ecological need for hunting, but the ecology of the animal hunted themselves. Most game animals are prey species, meaning they are near the bottom of the food chain and have predators, weather it's a wolf, coyote, cat, or human. Fortunately, we (humans) are at the top of the food chain so we act accordingly. If you don't like hunting, don't do it. But don't infringe on the the natural freedoms that I am entitled too.

There is much more to this argument which is science based and repeatedly shows hunting as an ESSENTIAL tool for managing wildlife all over the world. Please, don't let some redneck outlaws sway your decisions and ruin my way of life.
By the way the animal in my picture was captured and released unharmed for research purposes.

I can say what I like,thankyou...it would appear from your facebook page that you love to kill, maim and hunt animals. I don't care that you grew up with it at all, it just shows how common and naive you are? My father taught me to shoot but I never killed animals! Your sort, would pee your pants if hunted,and beg for mercy...why don't you try it? I am not the hypocrite...guess you should look in the mirror.
