SF Chronicle : Shooting with dart guns would revolutionize big-game hunting
sfgate.com ^ | 3-14-2004 | Tom Stienstra

Posted on 03/14/2004 8:41:02 AM PST by Trailer Trash

Edited on 04/13/2004 2:46:04 AM PDT by Jim Robinson. [history]

The world's oldest and now most controversial sport -- big-game hunting -- could be transformed into a provocative quest acceptable to most anyone if a new sport were created: catch-and-release hunting.

Imagine the thrill of tracking, spotting, stalking and hunting the world's greatest game animals at close range in Africa -- lion, Cape buffalo, leopard, elephant and rhinoceros -- without killing any of them.

It's called incrementalism.

Start small with solutions then call the solutions a detriment.

There was also a time when the animal rights crowd didnt have a problem with my fishing habits.

I am sure the health of the big 5 would not be harmed after getting multipler traquilizers shot into their bodies over and over again.

Just use paint balls to destroy the value of the hide, and it would put the PETA people in Heaven.

Thats what i mean. they find a solution to killing the animal with every intent of attacking thier first solution at a later date.

Zackly! Before long, particular elephants, lions, and rhinos (a hippo might drown) will just walk up to hunters looking for a fix!

You'll see it in their feral eyes: "Just shoot me. Shoot me! SHOOT ME G*DD*AMN YOU! Whateryawaitin' for?!? YOU want to do it! and I want you to do it! Do it! DO IT OR I'LL KILL YA!!!"

The administration of anesthesia is a very delicate endeavor.

It would be very easy to unintentionally kill the animal, or have it regain complete consciousness while you are standing over it getting your trophy picture taken.

Neither situation would have desirable consequences.

They are immediately over taken by terrorists with real rifles and guns but some how the PC "good guys" (libs) try to influence the terrorists into using the antique out moded weapons of the socialist elite left! Once in compete domination by third world terrorists, John,Al and the libs break down and blame their situation on the narrow minded conservatives for not "saving" them fast enough!

I think dart guns do indeed have a real purpose.

Shooting animal rights wackos who attempt to interfere with a person's right to hunt.

Not gonna work... Big Game Hunters ain't got the balls for it. Most big game hunters like the illusion of danger but not the reality. To use a dart gun requires that you get very close. Under 60 yards. Screw it up and the distinction between the hunter and the hunted gets reversed.

Our very distant ancestors knew what hunting really was. They went after big game with spears and rocks. It was no game to them wearing fru-fru hats and using high velocity rifles. For them the prize was life not ego. Failure didn't mean low self esteem it mean't death.

"Yet with no big-game hunters in the country, no money is available for wildlife protection, and local poachers are destroying the animals."

Seems like Tom Stienstra should be convincing the native poachers more than the "rich" hunters that take a trophy once in a while.

'Course, that naively assumes that he's really interested in preserving wild animals more than being jealous of wealthy safari hunters.

The world's oldest and now most controversial sport -- big-game hunting -- could be transformed into a provocative quest acceptable to most anyone if a new sport were created: catch-and-release hunting.

Imagine the thrill of tracking, spotting, stalking and hunting the world's greatest game animals at close range in Africa -- lion, Cape buffalo, leopard, elephant and rhinoceros -- without killing any of them.

Imagine being able to stalk and hunt a buffalo on the Great Plains and have the story end when the animal walks away unharmed. A grizzly bear in Alaska. A musk ox in the Arctic. A bighorn sheep in the Canadian Rockies.

Catch-and-release hunting is now possible by converting a high-powered rifle to a tranquilizer dart gun.

As far as I know, nobody has ever hunted the Big 5 of Africa with a dart gun. But I would consider joining an American hunter in this quest to tell the story of inventing a new sport that could change the world of the great outdoors and how the mainstream public regards big-game hunting.

This is incredibly stupid and likely to start getting hunters killed. We go to hunt to EAT it ... and take the trophy.

The author's do-gooder thoughts cancel out his apparent lack of knowledge about the sport.

There is a reason God created the 600 Nito Express. Ya don't do close range battle with a large dangerous animal with anything that ain't gonna stop it before it kills you.

Try hunting an elephant with a pistol. No balls ? You pait with too broad a brush there slick.

Personally, I don't think I would want to shoot a charging Cape buffalo (or a Rhino) at close range with a dart. A 700 Nitro wold be more to my taste.

What happens when the same buck gets "darted" again and again. What happens if they start to get conditioned to the drug so a larger dose is required?

What about animals adiction?

This is a folish article, written by someone who is obviously ignorant and has never had to skip a meal.

I prefer catch and eat.

You can do the same thing with a camera really. Getting close enough to get a really good shot of an animal with a 35mm slr would require the same sort of skills the author is mentioning when he talks about dart guns. You still get your trophy- a nice picture that you can blow up and hang on your wall.

If I weren't going to hunt I'd just go the photography route. I wouldn't bother trying to kit myself out with a dart gun.

Indeed it would.

The mainstream public would go from thinking hunters are bloodthirsty killers to morons.

I'm a bow and black powder hunter. Technology has made hunting meaningless. Today, the hunting skills of our ancestors have been lost to technology. If you want to see what hunting has become in America it is some moron wandering arround with a .44 magnum pistol.

The average hunter in America can't read sign, can't stalk, doesn't have the necessary patience in a stand or blind so he makes up for it with mud buggies, beer, and a 30.06.

Yep, your right.
Then there's hunting Mountain Lion with a pistol - I know a guy in AZ that does it. You have to get pretty close. I Think he uses a S&W .44 Magnum (could be a .357), it definitely takes 'nads'.

Yep. The same way switching to flag football would revolutionize the National Football League.

Or switching to Wiffle® balls would revolutionize Major League Baseball.

You nor an animal can get addicted to fast acting anesthetics. There is no " high" in it. They are fast acting and of short duration. There are no halothane or sodium pentathol junkies. You breathe it in or inject it and you pass out. You wake up with a terrific headache. Not the sort of pleasure experience that causes addiction.

OH!
I did leave out something...
Michael Jackson & Martha Stewart are sentenced by a social engineering judge to do community service "work-release" with Bill Moyers producing a documentary for TV on the revolutionary new hunting technique of darts in Africa!However they are inadvertently lost in the bush but stumble into the next "Survivor" episode. The terrorists capture all of them & assume they will be perfect material to ransom back to the USA! This ill fated group of American's leftovers are totally helpless & at the mercy of the evil doers (terrorist radicals). When suddenly from the back of the bamboo cage the whimpering voice of John Kerry begins to sing... "We shall over come"... The whole ensemble raise up in song as the camera crews start to film the epic event. But copyright and royalty arguments proceed to break out within the rank and file "union" (Movie producers), ... So rev Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson are self-elected in a last ditch effort to moderate the arbitration. Does that about sum it up?

Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton take up the mantle demanding
all same sex married couples in the cell be allowed to have accommodations and hospitalization. In a valiant attempt to appear noble, John Kerry leaps on one of the darts lying on the dirt floor so as to look like he has saved his fellow man from the brunt horror of the weapon's force. The film crews miss it so it has to be re-shot. All the libs in the cage get the idea they will be on the 6 o'clock news if they cover a dart ...so... the group of idiots begin leaping about the cell landing on darts.

Well, I'm a hunter who could go for this as long as it didn't completely replace conventional hunting. It would be great to be able to hunt game in the spring and summer and if it were properly regulated there would be minimal harm to the animals. I sure wouldn't want some damn biologist tagging along with me though.

You can do the same thing with a paintball gun. I think it's technically illegal in most states, (harassing wildlife), but it actually teaches the animals good survival skills.

You claim to know 3 big game hunters, but you post crap about them like this?

Big Game Hunters ain't got the balls for it. Most big game hunters like the illusion of danger but not the reality. To use a dart gun requires that you get very close. Under 60 yards. Screw it up and the distinction between the hunter and the hunted gets reversed.
Our very distant ancestors knew what hunting really was. They went after big game with spears and rocks. It was no game to them wearing fru-fru hats and using high velocity rifles. For them the prize was life not ego.Failure didn't mean low self esteem it mean't death.

I think you're an anti-hunting troll, blowing smoke. In close to 60 years of hunting I've known hundreds of hunters that can read sign, can stalk, and a few who have had the necessary patience in a stand or blind to get skunked for several years in a row, before getting their deer.

My son is a trophy hunter. - He's went to Africa twice, and has been skunked both times on Cape Buffalo. Seen them, couldn't get close enough fir a clean kill.
One of the two Grizzlys my son has killed was charging him at 20 yds, not an uncommon occurrence in Alaska or BC.

You are simply wrong about big game hunting, and those who hunt.

I believe that bow hunters and BP hunters are the most unethical, inhumane hunters out there. They don't care that their weapons are the most ineffective and often wound the animal and leave it to a long, wasteful death.

/sarcasm/turning of the tables.

See how that broad brush you are slinging works??? The only people I see making broad, idiotic statements like you made are: A. Elitist/supremist hunters that wouldn't mind seeing most types of hunting banned EXCEPT for the kind of hunting they do. OR, B. You are in fact an anti-hunter trying to disguise yourself as the one and only "true" hunter.

Which is it?
