People have their own views on spearfishing. Most would describe it as foul and evil , but have they ever tried or taken the time to understand what the sport is in reflection to our modern day lives. It is practical, ethical and is it a great reflection on how lucky we are as humans to have food just sat in a fridge in your local superstore.
Below is a stereotypical view of Hunting in general I found online.
Hunting may have played an important role, next to plant gathering and scavenging, for human survival in prehistoric times, but the modern “sportsman” stalks and kills animals for “recreation.” Hunting is a violent and cowardly form of outdoor “entertainment” that kills hundreds of millions of animals every year, many of whom are wounded and die a slow and painful death.
I would like you the reader to review this compared to your modern day life. Think of where your food comes from, how it has been farmed, how it has been killed then sat on top of your favorite Pizza or put into your subway. Our minds have become so used to this sanitized way of receiving food and eating it without thinking. With us you can to open your mind, body and soul back to prehistoric times when we hunted and feel something that only a select percentage of the world population dare to try.
This adventure with us allows you to really get back to humanity and what we really are, where we came from and have an unforgettable experience. Release your primitive state in a controlled manner that respects nature. No food goes to waste, enjoy the taste of fresh fish the sea and straight onto your pallet like it should have been and should be now, not processed, not shipped from the other side of the world, but caught humanly on the end of your spear and straight into a pan and onto your plate.
For or against please leave your comments below we would love to hear your point of view. To hunt or not to hunt…
