    The guy died participating in a dangerous hobby. He must have known the risks and opted to take them. As a hunter myself I always hate to hear when one of our own is injured or hurt, that said it does happen.

    My thoughts are with his family and I hope he rests in peace.

    I don't think that the loss of human life is all that dismissible. I think cheering the death of a human is morally indefensible in and of itself. Despite the fact that I hate whaling practices, I wouldn't want those Japanese whalers to die. Kinda sick, IMO, to cheer for human death.

    In all honesty, no sympathy for him. Sad to see a person die young, but when you do dumb things I don't lose sleep at night.

    Almost as sick as killing wild animals for fun. The humans had a choice the animals didn't

    Sicker, if you ask me. But that's as I said before.

    Leftwing and anti hunting seem to go hand in hand. Being a professional hunter in Africa is a dangerous job and the real professionals will protect their client. The PH we hunted with in Kenya, the Legendary Steve Smith (who survived fighting the Nazis, putting down the Mau Mau rebellion, and over 100 lion charges was killed in a traffic mishap in South Africa) lost his brother in law, the equally legendary Henry Poolman when a wounded lion charged the client and Poolman jumped in front of the client. His gun bearer shot the lion but the shot also killed Poolman. Smith's gun bearer killed the lion by breaking its neck with a butt stroke of Poolman's dropped rifle

    I understand some people-especially those who think BAMBI was a documentary-have an irrational and emotional hatred of hunting but to be happy someone died is actually to be expected from the far left

    So you don't eat meat or wear leather. anti hunters are pretty disgusting hypocrites in my book and again, its almost always the province of the far left.

    I said I feel sad for his family and the loss they have suffered, but not for him. He took a risk and it cost him his life, sorry, but them's the breaks.
    Wilders is a piece of gutter trash, a gutless populist who has no morality to speak of.
