Hunting in the USA has no moral basis, it’s just a bunch of people (usually rich white men) with nothing better to do than cover themselves in animal pee, wear camo, kill living beings and pretend they’re doing something “manly” and “noble”. It’s so much easier, cheaper, cleaner and nicer to grow some fucking veggies and eat those. Also, they will actually make you healthy. There is NO reason to eat animals in an industrialized society. www.vegankit.com
