It's so sad, and what a wonderful example for children .Instead of teaching them to have respect for animals they teach them to kill them.

Disgusting. How can you involve your kids in killing?

The adults promoting this are cruel and inhumane and teaching their kid to also be cruel and inhumane.

What truly despicable excuses for humans these killer human hunters be. The hunt may be over for this year, but if we unite early in 2014 perhaps we can stop this insane hunt this year. Happy New year to all.

Disgusting indeed. The psychological profile of serial killers is consistent with the characteristic traits of hunters . . . . I don't understand why we allow this type of behavior to exist.

I wish these fools would stop killing innocent animals. There is much better things to do with your kids, than shooting guns. May they somehow have come to their senses and start showing love to living creatures. Thanks Cher

Not only is it inhumane but the consequences to the environment are devastating.

Idiot hunters training their kids to slaughter poor animals. This is sick.

These people are sick who want to teach their children to hunt and kill an innocent animal that has done them no harm. I signed several petitions to stop this and at least in part it helped as I don't think they could kill on Federal lands. Apparently no wolves were killed during this blood sport of maniacs but sadly over 20+ coyotes were. We must be diligent to stop this sort of thing and be ready to fight again when this comes up again next year.
