if you and your clients are so busy shooting at everything then how is it that you're not overfishing or "thinning" out the population trip after trip?
So "legal" is the magic line of it being the right thing to do?.... If that's the case...would it be OK if I had sex with your 18 year old daughter ( Hypothetical...I have no idea if you have any children...so don't freak)...even though I'm almost old enough to be her grampa?? It would *be legal*...if not morally bankrupt.... See my point?....
Legal and what is ethical as a sportsman are sometimes separated by a wide margin....
There are many roads to travel
Many things to do.
Knots to be unraveled

This forum is about sportsman legally hunting, fishing, spearfishing and sharing their experiences. This is not an opportunity to attack others just because you don't believe in their way of hunting. There are those who don't believe in fishing either and I'm 100% sure none of you liked to be judged. Right or wrong bow hunting is legal, nothing new and just another form of placing food on the table and enjoying being outdoors. If you have nothing constructive to add then keep the negative comments to yourselves.
Here is a good example of how backwards the thinking is around here.. If a guy post a report about a offshore trip that includes 10 dolphin, a wahoo, limit of jacks, limit of snapper, limit of grouper and a limit of cobia he is a hero. However if a guy kills one stingray he is hung out to dry and bashed to the point that it might effect his business " by the way that is slander " even if it is "legal" to harvest a Ray. Now what is more Ethical I ask you? how many fish can you kill before it's not Ethical anymore? Let's agree to disagree and move on and let this man make a living in a bad economy.
