Hunting Dragonflies Part 2
« on: July 24, 2012, 02:31:09 pm »
HEy Guys,

I've starting filming for Hunting Dragonflies with a Primitive Bow, Part 2.  I know some of you have seen my first one, but some of you may not have seen it.  Of all the youtube vids I've made, Hunting dragonflies has gone the most Viral, hitting half a million views within less than a year of being online.  Well, that success has spurred me to start on Part 2.  I'll let you guys know when it is uploaded and available to see.  For those of you who haven't seen my first one, here's a link to it:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LT-eFa-2KI4&NR=1   Hope you like it!!

There are SO many mad hippies in your comments. I thought it was pretty incredible. Impeccable aim, great video.

Dragonflies are a symbol of happiness and purity to the NDN.  Seems a shame to be hunting them for ones pleasure

It seems no different than shooting a mosquito or a horsefly. You can have equal respect killing a dragonfly to hone your skills as you can shooting a deer for sustainance. We take from the earth. We'll all give back to her some inevitable day.

Interesting point of view, debatable but interesting

Ever try their backstraps?!?!  Oh man! 

All puny attempts at humor aside, the natural progression of the logic is to stop driving a car because we hit insects with the windshield, and so on.  Taking the North American Conservation Model into the arguement we then have to ask if the limited number of "kills" is an unbearable burden on the breeding population.  Populations of a species are the focus and not the individual animals. 

To weight the argument in favor of the single animal versus the population argues against any hunting for any purpose, or for that matter keeping of animals for food sources.

Yup, loaded philosophical content in this thread now.  Oops.  I have probably incited unrest in everyone that reads my post.  Time to get scarce.

I came, I saw, I liked it. I killed more dragon flies on my drive to WallyWorld than you got on your whole outing. I am not loosing any tears over "one DF". I was amazed to see how the little suckers could easily move out of the way. On to Part 2.

No unrest here ,I'm just not one for killing anything unless it is causing damage or
I plan on using/eating it,but if it's leagal and it don't bother you it don't bother me.  :) :) cool video billy.  :) I once made some young boys that came to my place to squirrel hunt cook and eat a Red bird they came in with. They don't do that anymore,but to tell the truth it wasn't half bad.  :) :)
