    OP probably feels like a goontard now. Which is fine.

    Next time junior plays he'll pull the same shit thinking its cool/okay to take random hacks and OP will rage on the poor confused chap.

    OP loses kid and hates his life.

    Goodnight sweet OP

    Thanks Dan Patrick for this terrible story about being a shitty father and fuck you momux because Lions are the greatest animal on this planet and a picture of some douchebag killing one isn't exactly a "cool" thread hijack

    Trying to set up a trip to Africa to go hunting some time next year and I figured this would be a good thread to get some thoughts/tips.

    Anyone done this before and know a good company or guide to use??

    I'm pretty sure "junior" spent the entire game thinking of an excuse so that his psycho faggot father wouldn't rage over his poor performance in a little league baseball game.

    i never said it was cool, just that taking down a lion with a bow and arrow is pretty damned impressive and that an 18 year old doing it proves that not the entire country has become pussified.

    Pretty much ya, I wasnt happy that he struck out on a bad pitch, it was the other parents reactions that pissed me off. Guess I didnt make that clear enough. I dont understand telling our kids they did a good job for failing. If my kid fails at something Im gonna tell him he failed not tell him he did a good job while failing. That being said, Im still gonna love him and hug him after the game. Thanks for all the laughs about trying to characterize me, you tools have no clue. Im willing to be most of you dont have kids or if you do they are probably one of the pussies I cant stand.

    African countries make a lot of money off of hunting for that kind of thing. My friend's Dad did it one year in the 1980's. He killed an elephant and shipped the tusks and head back and has it on the wall. This was all before the ivory ban.

    He said back then it was like $20,000 to kill an elephant but it isn't like you just go pay them $20,000 and you're allowed to go kill whatever. They keep track of all the elephants and monitor them. Every so often when an elephant is getting extremely elderly and isn't going to live too much longer they'll open that elephant up to hunting for a fee.

    I don't know if lions are similar but as far as I know it's not like you just go kill whatever you feel like.

    He's 10. Which means he is playing the second lowest level of baseball on the planet, the first being Tee ball. And you're acting like a fucking retard which will cause your kid to end up playing a flute, or tuba do to the overeating you will inevitably cause. Lay the fuck off. He's 10.

    And try working with him at home so he doesn't look like a moron swinging at pitches he has no business swinging at because he is so talented and just got bored. OB% of .666 and a BA of 0.000? My six year old knows better than this.

    Parents like that are why I love coaching at a very young age. I love that conversation at the beginning of the year where I tell them to butt out and keep their fucking mouth shut. I love the one at the end of the year where the same parents ask me how I got their dumbass kid to pay attention and listen to every word that comes out of my mouth.

    I had to tell a guy quietly to shut up or we would have some problems in between innings at a tee ball game for literally yelling at his son for missing the ball three times. This child has no athletic ability at all and the father most likely has never worked a single minute with him. And if I didn't know any better I would bet money he was hitting him.

    Basically there were a bunch of moms being supportive of their kids while they're playing Little League baseball. They're just a bunch of pussies for supporting this kids at something they do for fun? Your kid is so fucking awesome at baseball that he swings at terrible pitches because he was bored and you think he's a badass because of it.

    I bet if you're kid came home with all F's it wouldn't be because he's stupid it's because he's just so smart he gets bored with the class and doesn't pay attention right?

    It is not about telling they did well when they failed. It is about supporting them no matter the outcome especially at 10 years old. When you do that, you are allowing a 10 year old kid to have fun. You are showing your kid that your love and pride doesn't solely depend on his accomplishments as a 10 year old. You are teaching your kid to try his best at all times not just when he is not bored. I have kids and they know that I expect them to do their best and try their hardest at all times in everything they do. They know that sometimes your best is not as good as another person's best. They also know not to "quit" because they are bored.

    This is also how they pay for the game reserves and hire people to protect them from poachers. Also how they get rid of rogue elephants.

    So.... hasn't been addressed yet. We've established in the OP that he got "bored" of being at bat and seeing bad pitches. So he swung at unhittable balls to get out and go back to the bench.

    If this was really the case, I can't imagine what he did on the basepaths.... Did he draw pictures in the dirt? No way he stood on 1st base and just watched the pitchers throw bad pitches to other kids. You can't even lead off at that age.

    And don't even need to get started on playing in the field. 100% this kid picks flowers in the outfield.

    Might be time to find him a new sport :twocents:

    Exactly. I mean, my ass swung at some bad pitches when I was young and I knew it. I'd beat myself up over it and my dad would pat me on the back and say "it's going to be okay, you'll get em next time. You tried your best and that's all that matters."

    This fucking guy is pissed at his kid for swinging at bad pitches and then is proud of him when he says he did it because the pitcher sucked? Then mother fucker, don't swing and get a walk. That's actually teaching your son something about the game. A walk is the same thing as a hit. If you're going to get pissed at him about swinging at bad pitches, at least teach him why instead of acting smug at the fact that the kid did it out of boredom.

    You sound like a fucking moron. You have a 10 year old child and are still calling people on the internet tools and talking about other young children as "pussies that you can't stand".

    "If my kid fails at something Im gonna tell him he failed not tell him he did a good job while failing"

    I'm sure your kid will never have self-esteem problems with such excellence in the parenting department.

    Speaking of pussification.

    I've hunted all my life and know hundreds of people that have as well and I can maybe name 2 that are douchebags and just kill stuff and leave it lay. Literally every other one gets the meat processed or donates it to someone that will eat it. As for safaris, you realize the natives eat what's killed, right? Don't act like they shoot something take a picture and let it rot. It's already been said but the money made from people going over there to hunt is used against the poachers in Africa.

    Father in law's friend went over and hunted and at the end, tipped the cooks $20 a piece and his guide a couple hundred, gave a kid a scope and the brackets off a couple of his rifles and the whole village was in tears. He was kind of weirded out and asked another guy what was going on and he said that they worked for about 50 cents a day and the scope mounts were over a month's wages and scope was over a year's worth of wages.

    The point is, don't be a bleeding heart pussy and act like safaris are this terrible tragedy. Teddy R and hunting are :americafuckyeah: Poaching, killing and leaving animals lay, and crying for any animal that's shot is for pussies.

    Guess what, then I wasn't talking about you.

    And I'm skeptical about the whole giving the animals to natives to eat part, but I'll take your word for it.

    P.S. That guy killed a lion, which is nearly endangered. And he killed a large male, which can lead to the deaths of many other of his probable pride (thx Juggsian research), so suck a dick. The argument for still hunting them is kind of questionable at best, the income for remote tribes from the rich Americans coming in.

    “… during the late 1990s, sport hunting is responsible for a large component of economic growth. Initially, most sport hunting revenue accrued to government and private landowners, however, more recently, an increasing proportion of such revenues has been apportioned between these two sectors and local communities.” (Report of the Southern African Development Community, a treaty organization.)


    "Trophy hunting is of key importance to conservation in Africa by creating [financial] incentives to promote and retain wildlife as a land use over vast areas…". (National Geographic News, March, 2007)


    Trophy hunting alone currently generates $20 million annually in Botswana and more than 1,000 jobs.

    For what it's worth. Doesn't say anything about food but it certainly pays them some.

    Yeah, I've read that stuff, still doesn't sit right that hunting near endangered animals for a purely economic benefit. I get that it may keep them from becoming truly endangered, because of the incentive to keep their habitats intact.

    Not gonna lie, didn't know much of this until today.

    Yes that's what they do. You pay to hunt the animal. Then you pay for them to skin the animal. You're in Africa you're not shipping the meat back to America. You want the skin as a trophy. The leftovers are used by the villages or whatever. They don't just throw everything in a dumpster. No one goes over there to just shoot shit and leave it laying there.

    It's like when I went fishing in Grand Cayman. Whatever we didn't want after deep sea fishing the locals used to grill out that night.
