    Sorry to be off-message with the forum, but I thought it was well understood that meat production requires more land than crop production. The animals have to eat something. Happy to be corrected though.

    Meat and dairy farming does take up more space and resources but provides a lot more protein for the space. I'm not saying organic veg farming is bad, it's great, but if we were to switch to veganism worldwide we would need masses more quinoa, amaranth and black beans etc. to be grown. Usually when a market in those kinds of items expands rapidly what happens is poorer countries that don't have the luxury of making environmentally friendly choices rip up subsistence farmers (and usually rainforests) to sell/lease the land to farming corps. It happened with quinoa in central America where the locals used to live on milk, meat and potatoes from their farms, got paid to mass produce quinoa, it got shipped to vegans in Auckland and the farmers found they had barely enough money to buy their food. Then when that hipster food fad ends they're screwed, the industry leaves, stops paying them all together and they starve for a few years while they convert their family farm back to how they used to operate...if they can.

    https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...e-truth-quinoa

    It's the dark side of hipster vegan food trends.
    Not to get too haughty but the best way I can think of getting food is getting it yourself. From the garden or the hill. And that's my aim.

    The shooters get up before dawn, don camouflage suits and war paint, trek down to lakes, ponds and rivers, and install themselves in hidden huts called maimai to wait for daylight. When they spot their targets they train powerful firearms on them and blast them out of the sky.

    Just moments before the birds were sleeping peacefully, heads resting gently on their backs. Next to them their lifelong partners, also sleeping peacefully.
    Suddenly their watery refuge is turbulent with panicking family and friends, the air filled with their cries.

    Terrified, they take to the sky in an effort to escape, only to be picked off by shooters who fist pump and whoop in delight when they make a kill.

    There is so much wrong with duck shooting that it is hard to know where to begin, but we could start with sentience.

Poorer countries would be made to farm things like kale and the subsistence farmers wouldn't be able to afford the produce they grow, like what happened in Central and South America. Natural habitats would be destroyed, rainforests leveled, rivers polluted, species decimated, severe weather would cause enormous famines and the added industry would destroy the environment locally, then globally.

    When you produce your food by presenting your credit card at an sustainable-organic-free-range-vegan-plastic-free cafť you apparently get to malign everything else outside your bubble.
    @Lore you hit the nail on the head....just add that when we get to this stage we will have to wipe out all animals as they will be eating our food source hence becoming pests. Thanks but I really like animals not only because there made of meat. If you go to the coal face of conservation you will find that hunters do most of the hard yards and spend the most money on increasing the habitat of there duck ponds and wet lands. Point that out to the next vegan that tryís to convert you. Just ask this question whenís the last time you planted a tree, cleaned a pond built nesting boxís? Oh if you think Iím all talk hereís what I made over the weekend.

    Yea Sideshow but the vegan idea of hunting is that these hapless creatures need the protection of brave vegans. Not that they have developed ways of surviving. If you've ever watched Life Below Zero (if not check it out) there was a guy called Glen (I think) who lived alone in the Brookes Range of Alaska with no machinery. One day while he was out hunting he says, "There are no animals that evolved to be food for other animals. Everything out here is trying to survive, even the plants and trees don't want to be eaten." The idea vegoes have is that you walk into a field and shoot into the sky and some cute ducks fall out of the sky ready to eat. Because they don't understand the hours and hours it takes to create a habitat, train a dog, maintain a gun, process meat, hide yourself, have patience and stealth, etc., etc. (neither do I but I'm working on it). And that's not to say anything about the generations that incrementally developed and passed down these tools and skills. Same with all kinds of hunting.

    When you simplify the process to it's grossest terms you can have the luxury of acting as if it's the lowest form of human behavior, not the highest.

    There is a prima facie animal welfare case here. Hunters should loudly and publicly oppose abattoirs. That will get the message across.
    Guns don't kill people - drivers do.

    wonder if they realise that there will have to be a big poisoning program to kill all the pests and animals so that there will be enough veges for everyone to survive.bit like they want to stop duck shooting but none of them will remember the plague of ducks that used to decimate grain paddocks in a few nights. just shows how dumb they are.
