Anyone who thinks hunters are just 'bloodthirsty morons' hasn't looked into hunting.

I feel a distaste for hunting, first because of a kind of Buddhist respect for the unity and sacredness of all life, and also because the pursuit of a hare or chamois strikes me as a kind of 'escape of energy,' that is, the expenditure of our effort in an illusory end, one devoid of profit. -Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

My parents were brutal to each other, so I slept in the basement by an old coal-fired furnace. I became a street kid. Occasionally, I'd live with aunts or uncles, then I'd run away to live in the woods, trapping and hunting game to survive. The wilderness pulled at me; still does. -Gary Paulsen

I am proud to have been born in Iowa. Through the eyes of a ten-year-old boy, it was a place of adventure and daily discoveries – the wonder of the growing crops, the excitements of the harvest, the journeys to the woods for nuts and hunting, the joys of snowy winters, the comfort of the family fireside, of good food and tender care. -Herbert Hoover

Border collies predate the British Kennel Club. They've been bred consistently for 100 years. They're the last working dogs in the world, with some minor exceptions. Bench shows, dog shows have ruined the other breeds, like the hunting dogs. Border collies are peasant dogs, and that's protected them. -Donald McCaig

I tried for years to get an agent because I was told you needed an agent. The agent-hunting process was grim indeed. -Laura Amy Schlitz

I enjoy being with my family and hunting with my children. -Jerry Jones

Male buerkitshi are certainly more common than females today, although eagle hunting has always been open to interested girls. Archaeology suggests that eagle huntresses were probably more common in ancient times. -Adrienne Mayor

Evidence pointing to eagle hunting's antiquity comes from Scythian and other burial mounds of nomads who roamed the steppes 3,000 years ago and whose artifacts abound in eagle imagery. -Adrienne Mayor

There's obviously a lot of controversy around the issue of hunting as there is around gambling, and I like these stories where there is a moral dimension, stories that force you to think about your prejudices about a subject and explore the extent to which they are justified. -Louis Theroux

Hunting really divides people in Britain. We keep pets, and we name our animals, but we're not too worried about industrial hunting practices. -Louis Theroux

Big game hunters and the hunting industry in South Africa know a lot of people regard what they do as terrible, and the media have tended not to do them any favours. So it was an uphill struggle to win trust from the people and to get into the world. -Louis Theroux

I certainly think that we can take steps to prevent this kind of weapon that is designed to create mass casualties from getting into the hands of the wrong people while still protecting the Second Amendment rights of the people of New Hampshire and making sure that we're protecting the ownership and use of legitimate hunting rifles. -Maggie Hassan

If I can't be fishing or hunting, I want to be in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. -Jim Harrison

If you want to go out for a hunting trip and shoot cans with your son and a .22, that's fine. Do I need an AK-47 with a 100-round magazine if I'm going on a hunting trip? No. It is, to borrow a phrase from Confucius, like using a cannon to kill a mosquito. -Armie Hammer

I'm hunting one thing and one thing only, and that's the Super Bowl. -DeAngelo Williams

I've spent so many years talking about lame ducks in the White House and Congress, and it's never occurred to me to find out what the heck it means. It turns out it's an old English hunting term – something about firing at a duck without quite killing it. In any case, the hobbled duck limps on, at a distinct disadvantage. -Gwen Ifill

My tastes are not those of the king, who has none, except for hunting and mechanic's labour. -Marie Antoinette

I had to understand the whole bounty hunting thing, because we don't have that in Venezuela. Nothing similar at all, at least not legal. -Edgar Ramirez

I don't go hunting with kings and princes. -Ken Cuccinelli

I don't see how a socialist government can tolerate hunting on horseback. The people who do this are snobs; they're very well-to-do. -Brigitte Bardot

I don't believe in these headline-hunting interviews. That's just not my style. -Walter Cronkite

We have a lot of friends who are hunters. And you know what? Come hunting season, man, they head to the woods, you know. And again, this country was built on God and guns, folks. I mean, it really was. -Johnny Van Zant

If people want to own a rifle or something like that for hunting purposes only, I tend to agree with that. But semi-automatic weapons and handguns, that's just unreal. I mean, what good are handguns? -Johnny Van Zant

I enjoyed the theatrics and the physical demands of everything that went on in the ring. But I was, initially, a relatively shy kid. I think that's probably what attracted me to hunting is that it was such a polar opposite of the other, and it was that opportunity for peace and quiet and to decompress. -Shawn Michaels

You see the standard hunting show; it's an outdoor television show. A lot of times, it's just a guy sitting in a tree, waiting on an animal. I don't think it does it justice, and I don't think it captures the enjoyment and the splendor of the incredible outdoors and the feeling of being out there. -Shawn Michaels

I suppose a lot of people don't understand that one of the things that drew me to hunting was the peace and the solitude, the mushy spiritual stuff, strangely enough. The quiet away from 75,000 roaring fans. The fans, that's very wonderful – I get a great charge from that. -Shawn Michaels

Over the years, with hunting, I think what's become my favorite part of hunting is how self-sufficient I'm becoming. -Shawn Michaels

It's fascinating to go somewhere where you're away from everything. There are no houses, no buildings, no roads, no people. And for a little less extreme hunting, any place in the West – Colorado, Utah, Montana – that's just beautiful country. -Shawn Michaels

One thing I always tell players is that there are three bad things: Nothing good happens after midnight, nothing good happens when you're around guns unless you're going hunting, and you don't want to mess around with women that you don't know because a lot of times, bad things happen. -Nick Saban

I actually hated hunting the first time I went when I was a kid. My dad took us deer hunting. We sat there for 30 minutes, and I felt like I was losing my mind. But in college, I fell in love with it. Football became a full-time job, and I needed an escape. I needed something that would mellow me out. -Carson Wentz

Offensive operations and hunting down the enemy is an integral part of any counterinsurgency approach. -H. R. McMaster

In Canada, the only weapons you have are for hunting. -Diego Klattenhoff

On my teams, as a guy who grew up hunting and fishing, I was in the minority in terms of music and lifestyle. I became good friends with people who listened to R&B and rap. But it wasn't just an issue of being around it – I was naturally drawn to it right off the bat. -Sam Hunt

I grew up in rural Dixon, CA, and I've been hunting with my father ever since I was a young boy. He taught me how to hunt and shoot, firearm safety, and have respect for the outdoors. -Jon Pardi

There was a point when I told my daddy I didn't want to go hunting anymore. -Jason Isbell

The idea of growing up in the South and being a man is an interesting thing; there's a lot masculinity involved, with hunting, fishing, and playing sports that rural people take pride in, but at the same time, I grew up really not wanting to hate anybody. -Jason Isbell

It's very fun to be the hunter of the sounds. The hunter of the right energy. And it's not really about if every sound is correct; it's more the energy – if it hits you in some way, it doesn't really matter to me if it's not perfect. I'm still very excited while hunting for songs. -Aurora

I grew up in – I personally grew up in a gun culture. I grew up in upstate New York where most families had guns for hunting, target practice, whatever. The vast majority of people I knew never used their guns for any crime. -Stephen J. Dubner

In hunting ideas for books, I look for stories about long-past events that once commanded the world's attention but that, for one reason or another, faded from contemporary awareness. -Erik Larson

The fact that I have to set things to record seems idiotic. And channel guides – I get home, and I want to watch a Duke basketball game; why do I have to go hunting to find out what channel it's on? Why can't I just say, 'I want to watch Duke basketball.' Or, even better, why doesn't the system know that? -Eddy Cue

Our bodies and minds evolved and were adapted for hundreds of thousands of years for tasks like climbing a tree and picking apples, or hunting rabbits, or looking for mushrooms in the forest. They were not adapted to the very gruelling work that is involved in field work – ploughing, harvesting, bringing water, digging weeds – things like that. -Yuval Noah Harari

I grew up hunting and fishing in Land Between the Lakes. I have so many great memories of camping with my mom over at Redd Hollow. -W. Earl Brown

I grew up in Iowa, so I would go hunting. I took a hunter's safety course in eighth grade to get extra credit in school. -Paul Rust

The booming popularity of alligator hunting, sparked by reality shows like the History Channel's 'Swamp People,' is easy to understand: It's an exotic blast of adrenaline. But there's a culinary upside as well, with gator boasting a delicate light-pink meat that, to me, falls somewhere between veal and wild turkey. -Jonathan Miles

For whatever reason, I encounter Canadian whiskey at hunting camps way more often than I do in restaurants, bars, or homes. Could be the lower price. Could be the mellow character, which lends itself to long hours of fireside sipping. Or it could just be tradition. -Jonathan Miles

I loved to go hunting out in the woods and hiking, and that's just not easy anymore. For me, to walk up and down hills in the rough terrain, it just doesn't work very well. It can, but it's three times as hard as it used to be. -Mike Schultz

I never really felt like I quite fit in. Other boys were playing sports and into hunting and stereotypically masculine activities. I was always more attracted to the arts. I loved to dance, I loved to sing, and I always knew I would be an actor. I don't really know why. -Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman

It's harder to kill off fish than mammals. But after 1,000 years of hunting the Atlantic cod, we know that it can be done. -Mark Kurlansky

Turkey hunting is my thing; it's only once a year, but if it's turkey season, don't call me, because I won't answer. -Luke Combs

I've been part of task forces hunting the most evil humans to walk the face of this planet. I believe all of that was for a reason, because I love America. -Tim Kennedy

At least inside the city of Seattle, driving is going to be a hobby in 2035. It's not going to be a mode of commuting the same way hunting is a hobby for some people, but it's not how most of us get our food. -Oren Etzioni

In a sense, mass incarceration has emerged as a far more extreme form of physical and residential segregation than Jim Crow segregation. Rather than merely shunting people of color to the other side of town, people are locked in literal cages – en masse. -Michelle Alexander

As much as I enjoy hunting the abundant wildlife along the river bottom, my wife and I also take great pleasure in sharing the hunting opportunities on our ranch with so many from our community each year. We understand that community service and shared enjoyment of our great lands is the true Montana tradition. -Matt Rosendale

Turkey hunting is my passion because I love the thrill of calling them in. -Jim Kelly

I did not start hunting until later in life. When I was a kid growing up in Pennsylvania, my dad worked at a steel mill, and we didn't have the means to buy guns or take off and go hunting. But I loved being outdoors. I built tree stands and ground blinds in the woods and pretended that I was hunting. -Jim Kelly

If my 18-year-old daughter asked me whether she should lead a truth-hunting, artistic, uncompromising life as I have done, I'd say no, don't do it. It's a difficult and lonely path for a woman. -Viv Albertine

My whole career, I've been climbing or chasing or hunting something. -Finn Balor

If you are confiding in someone, it needs to be the woman in your life. If that woman is your mother, you may as well scuttle back under her petticoats and let the real women in pencil skirts and tortuous heels get on with the job of husband-hunting. -Katie Hopkins

One of the sports I do – my wife thinks I'm nuts – is open-water spear fishing, what we call blue-water hunting. We get in a boat, and we go offshore, normally about 30 miles. So when you jump off the boat, there are no reefs, and the bottom is no longer fifty or a hundred feet: it's thousands of feet. It's sort of like being in outer space. -Scott Glenn

If I've gone to get a takeaway, and I get chips… I like to match up the chips in length. That is actually quite weird. Obviously, if I've got chips, I pick them out in twos. That's a weird thing as well. You know, if they're not the same length, well, I go hunting for the same length in chips. -Ashley Young
