Computer Hunts

Recommended Posts

eyecrosser2000

Did anybody read the article in a "popular weekly outdoor newspaper" about the guy who is starting a business that lets people shoot exotic animals from their computer? I read it a couple of times to make sure I was getting it right, but I am sure that for a big fee (couple thousand bucks) you can sit at your computer, watch animals at feeding station, and shoot an animal. Not sure of all the details, but it seems like the web-cam is synched up with the crosshairs on the rifle and when you click the mouse you pull the trigger. Wow!

I saw that article. I gave me a real uneasy feeling. I don't like it at all.

I saw that article to. Doesn't sound very sportsman like, sounds more like playing a video game.

The sad thing is there are people who will do it.

I read the same article you can see a demo of the shoot on the website. seems a little scary and very unsportsmanlike. If you need to sit behind your computer to shoot animals then it's probably a safe bet that most of us are happy your not in the woods. I guess different strokes for different folks.

What the he!! happened to the good ole days of fair chase, now that really crosses the line! That shouldnt even be legal, i agree, if you dont even want to get off your duff to leave the house to enjoy the hunt than I'm probably glad you arent in my woods also!

You gotta be kidding me... Pulling the trigger and watching the animal fall is about the only part about hunting that I somewhat dislike. And people will pay big money to do only that? Makes ya wonder.....

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????

      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
