    Stop Hunting please

  2. Karen Bensdon on May 9, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    This is probably what life was like before trucking, supermarkets and that whole factory industry. People ate meat less often, and worked harder for it. It’s not too different from how carnivore animals hunt. We have it so easy now.

  3. angeluzfun on May 9, 2020 at 3:59 pm

    Dude, why would you even thought that making a hunting video would be a good idea? (no, I don’t eat meat) I follow a *digital nomad no Instagram-fancy vlog*, and then you show this. Not cool. Unfollow…

  4. Christopher Dickinson on May 9, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    I agree with this type of hunting as its quick a hopefully fairly painless for the deer. Fox hunting I am very opposed to though as thats pretty barbaric

  5. kprpearl on May 9, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    My husband hunts to eat the meat not for sport. There’s not an overpopulation of deer here in our state.

  6. Dana L. Salvo on May 9, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Can’t believe you were in Jersey, as my husband and i are from New Jersey.. we live in Pennsylvania now, but born and raised in Jersey. Hunting is definitely a big deal here, as you saw at Walmart. Your buddy is right in thar it’s best to know where your meat is from. Take care. New viewers Love your videos. Keep up the great work ! My husband and I get a good laugh. 🤗 D

  7. TheDinkie on May 9, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Hunting for the thrill of it is just plain psycho. After watching your vids on how you love animals and how you droll over them – I have to unsub. Your just a fake little man, in a fake little life.

  8. Dan N Cheryl Seguin on May 9, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    Yes, very ethical. Even more ethical than the methods that produce the meat products you buy in a grocery store. Ethical. Wholesome. Honest. Real. Natural.

  9. Liza Me on May 9, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    Does your friend kill cows as well? Where does he get the meat for his burgers and steaks? Or does he only eat deer? I’m sorry this just does not sit well with me. I get the concept of wanting to know where your food comes from but this is completely unnecessary. Sorry I’m going to disagree. There so many other more exciting things you could have videod and shared with us

  10. The Inquisitor on May 9, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    It is SO ENTERTAINING how absolutely butt-hurt and triggered so many pansies get at the mere word "hunting" and by the fact that there’s many of us who choose to procure our own meat.
    Here in Michigan alone, there are an average of 50,000 car accidents per year (with loss of human life) caused by deer because of a very, very healthy whitetail population (that should be managed if we really care). Hundreds of people DIE annually in the continental U.S. from "deer accidents". Get real, people. Man IS a predator and it’s a very natural process.

  11. Server Support on May 9, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    What a completely unexpected and utterly disgusting turn this channel has taken. You are clearly mixing with the wrong friends. If this is who you really are, Alex, don’t expect me or my friends to support your channel in future.

  13. John Lethco on May 9, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    I love deer hunting but not over bait such as the corn unless it’s a natural food source in the area . Deer made into summer sausage is so good 👌

  14. T T on May 9, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    Knowing that many viewers are likely to be anti-hunting yet eat meat was a neat challenge to our morals. I can see why Emma found other things to do 🙂

  15. F&F Travel on May 9, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    No Emma, No view 😡😡😡

  16. Colin Gibson on May 9, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    Hey Alex. Being a Brit as well l understand your feelings . however I lived on a farm here in Georgia with a Bible toting woman who was not into hunting . However she had goats peacocks geese chickens. Well snakes got the chickens and the and she thinks the peacocks. And a pack of local dogs got the goats and geese. Well shortly after we started to lose the goats she told me to get one of the rifles that her deceased husband had and take care of the problem. Well being a Brit and a dog lover it was against my wishes. This changed when I just happened to be home one morning during the week I was sitting on the porch with a cuppa. When four dogs came out of the brush on the other side of a field and made straight for the goats in the small field next to the house.
    They then proceeded to chase and kill one of the goat’s. For fun. Well that did it. I shot one and the others ran. Well. I didn’t go out to the field instead, I went to the back of the house and used the ladder to get up to the roof.
    It paid off as they didn’t see me moving around and came back. To have some more fun. But this time I was ready. Waiting until they were in the field I got them in quick time .Being an RAF marksmen had paid off. I waited an hour before going down and took a pistol and went to see. But we had lost three goats two I had to take care of.
    But the dogs all had collar’s on. So she contacted the police. Who to put it mildly weren’t concerned. To use there words " well you took care of it". . So we loaded up the dogs in the truck and went and dumped them on the steps of there homes. After photographing everything. Including the collar’s.

  17. Daniel Seguin on May 9, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    By and large, sportsmen, hunters and anglers care more and do more for conservation and the outdoors than the average person. Just a fact.

  18. Ezekiel De La Croix on May 9, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    You thinking of doing this again without the killing part? Together with Emma?

  19. Arnel A on May 9, 2020 at 4:13 pm


  20. The Inquisitor on May 9, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    Hunting is as natural as eating or breathing and man is a predator. Many who are carnivorous are merely in denial about the process and that somewhere at some point, something had to die. Deer hunting here in Michigan is awesome. Venison is lean, organic, hormone and antibiotic-free.
    It is a mixed bag emotions to be successful on the hunt (imho). There is definitely an adrenaline rush and thrill in taking a clean, responsibly placed shot and succeeding but I can never delight in the killing of something. There is always some remorse for that aspect and that is why the animal should be utilized to the fullest and NEVER ever harvested merely for a ‘trophy’ or for the sake of killing. The first thing I have always done upon retrieving my kill is drop to a knee and thank my creator for providing it and giving me the skill and judgment to do it in an efficient manner.
    Lastly, a big part of the hunt is just enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of the great outdoors. To witness the forest come alive while sitting in the dark with a nice cup of java as the day breaks. Sharing sunrises and hunts with a young son or daughter makes for priceless memories. Nothing beats the camaraderie, the day’s stories and an adult beverage in the evening around a nice campfire.

  21. Kim Adams on May 9, 2020 at 4:20 pm

    I’m not sure why you even bothered to film this one. You were clearly uncomfortable. Emma is a vegan. And you didn’t catch anything.

  22. Yvette Welch on May 9, 2020 at 4:21 pm

    WOW, that man is beautiful!!! I want to hunt that!!!

  23. Michael and Rebecca on May 9, 2020 at 4:23 pm

    I grew up in Oklahoma, and my dad hunts and fishes. I can field dress a buck and clean a fish, but I have never been comfortable with it. Harvesting an animal for meat is essential to the eco-system and provides food for families. However, I can understand how many people feel about the process.

  24. Thomas Crown on May 9, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    Totally disagree with hunting and v glad you failed. felt a little uncomfortable, but this seems to be popular in the US. Think you did a good job indicating it wasn’t your thing. Interesting vlog.

  25. David Race on May 9, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    Why do you assume that Brits don’t like hunting?
    Field sports have a big following in the UK and are major employers in the countryside. Admittedly, we don’t fart about with bows and arrows but use shotguns and rifles.
    I can only assume from your lack of knowledge that you are a Towney?

  26. Stellar Celeste on May 9, 2020 at 4:27 pm

    I can’t help but admit that I’m so happy no deers were killed in the making of this video… I found myself having to fast-forward through the video before watching, just to make sure no dead animals would appear suddenly; yes, I went back and watched it once I found out, though.

    I must say, I’m so impressed that you took the time to actually partake in something so foreign to you that you normally don’t agree with. So many people cast judgement from afar; however, you actually cared enough to see for yourself and I commend that. Great to see you traveling through America – look forward to watching your travels – and I hope my fellow Americans treat you well!

  27. Dale Moore on May 9, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    Doe a deer…a female deer

  28. D C on May 9, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    Hunting is not only ethical but necessary. I live Pennsylvania and I have hunted in many States in the USA and in Germany (for wild boars) and Scotland for deer, rabbits and driven pheasant.

    If you eat meat more than likely that meat came from a butchered steer or cow. Somebody killed it and butchered it before it made it’s way to the grocery store.

    I’ll provide an example why hunting is necessary: There are about 1 million deer in Pennsylvania. If we stopped hunting for 1 year there would be at least 2 million deer. Go another year and you have 4 million. You get the picture. There isn’t enough food in the forests to support that amount of deer – in other words they would slowly – over a period of months starve to death (a terrible and slow death). Since the deer in Pennsylvania has no predator "Man" has to assume that role to keep the deer population in check.

    I took my first deer in 1965. I shot one last season with a rifle and we still have about 40 pounds of deer burger in our freezer. We use about 5 pounds a week.

    Tell your woman what a Vegetarian is: Vegetarian is an old Indian word for Lousy Hunter. 😀

    There’s a bag limit on how many deer can be killed by a single hunter, dependent on the wildlife count done by the state’s game wardens, wildlife resource officers and park rangers. Because so many of the deer’s natural predators have been eliminated from so many areas (due to farming) there’s nothing to regulate the deer population except humans. If it weren’t for hunting season the deer would become too populous and die of disease or starvation. Hunting in America is vital for the ecology of the wilderness and all the other wildlife, which would starve if the deer became too overpopulated.

  30. Janie Windle on May 9, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    There is a reason for hunting seasons. Educating yourself would be a good idea, and no i’m not a hunter but I’m not against hunting.

  31. a00141799 on May 9, 2020 at 4:31 pm

    I’m not a hunter but many of my family members, friends, neighbors and coworkers are. They have been hunting all their lives. It is completely normal for them to hunt, trap, fish etc… Because most of you British people have never done this it, it probably seems insane. I live over on the west coast in Washington. I used to drive back and forth from Seattle to San Diego and there used to be too many dead deer along the road in Oregon and Northern California to count.

    In many places in the US, it is literally possible to live off of the land and eat only wild caught meat, sea food, fruit and vegetables. 😉😉😉

  32. Melissa on May 9, 2020 at 4:33 pm

    I agree that if you eat meat, you need to process an animal at least once.
    I raise chickens for meat, and the first time I had to kill a bird that I had raised from a tiny chick made me ill. I almost couldn’t do it. But I did and I still do every year. It has made me respect the life of the animal far more than I thought I already did, and it makes me think long and hard about the food i buy and the life the creature raised in a factory farm. I much rather support small local farms where you can visit and see the animals out in the pastures.
    People in Europe (and I believe the UK) have it lucky in that your meat regulations are far harder than here in America where you can inject all manner of antibiotics and hormones into food animals, especially beef. If you want meat without all of that, you need to raise and kill your own, hunt, or buy extremely expensive Organic meat.

  33. Violent Kisses on May 9, 2020 at 4:34 pm

    So much effort lol
    At my sisters house in rural Ohio she can shoot a deer with a pistol from her front pouch if she wanted.
    There are just so many here.

  34. Diana on May 9, 2020 at 4:35 pm

    How did Emma deal with this her being a vegetarian? I love you guys, thanks for the video-I guess! LOL

  35. Rebecca on May 9, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    Long before store bought meat, people hunted and gathered to survive. Personally a carnivore. Family hunted long before I was born, truth be told I love venison jerky. Grew up on it. Glad you didn’t get a chance to hunt/kill. I still remember my first deer. I’d prefer you to keep being you. Cheers.

  36. Ogie Cruz on May 9, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    I wish you American have no luck on hunting and killing deer or any animal… like… Forever

  37. Liza Me on May 9, 2020 at 4:40 pm

    I love you guys but I am disappointed by this vlog. You came to the United States to hunt animals for sport. That makes me sad. There are many other things to experience in my country the give you a taste of what it’s really like to me in the US. Still love you though.

  38. Randy Herbrechtsmeier on May 9, 2020 at 4:42 pm

    Outstanding Alex. There are more Deer in the U.S. than the time of Columbus. The Deer are a Pest on the Hiways and Biways. Im glad ya didnt shoot one. I didnt wanna watcha toss your Cookies

  39. Hold the Bananas on May 9, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    Super entertaining! Welcome to ‘MURICA! The deer rub is specifically a territorial thing, and a great way to track them down. We agree with the reasoning that a strike from a car is much less ethical. Fun fact for you, though—in California, it’s legal to collect roadkill for meat, as deer are struck so often! Love the video, Beans! We hope you are able to visit our area on your American adventure!

  40. Tony S on May 9, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    That certainly beats trudging across a Scottish Highland hillside in the wind and the pouring rain with an heavy rifle on ones shoulder to stalk some stags that the Gillies have said are in the area. Then to lie down in the wet heather behind a tussock to shoot a Stag. The one redeemer is that liver tasted lovely at dinner that night. The carcass sold to the local Game Dealer, it is how Scottish Estates survive, not the value of the Venison but what we pay to spend a Week or Weekend during the annual cull. Red Deer numbers are still rising to unsustainable numbers, which is why the Scottish Government plan to re-introduce the European Wolf to the Highlands and the European Lynx, native predators back again after hundreds of years, just needs the right balance to be struck.

  41. Glownigger Storage on May 9, 2020 at 4:46 pm

    this is the weirdest thing i’ve seen in a bit

  42. EJ XOF66 on May 9, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    You do realize the Brits have been hunting for 1000’s of years?

  43. JSkillz on May 9, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    I eat meat and I’m fine with people who hunt to put food on the table, so long as it’s quick and painless. I don’t really agree that meat eaters should go on a hunt at least once though; I understand that we kill animals to eat their meat, but that doesn’t mean I want to see it, much less _do_ it. I don’t think that makes me ignorant. If I kill one animal, does that give me license to eat as much meat as I like – guilt-free – for the rest of my life? I don’t think so.

    I enjoy the protection of our armed forces, but that doesn’t mean I should go out to Afghanistan to kill at least one member of ISIS to fully appreciate it. If hunting is a job people want to do, and it benefits me without me having to do it, I think that’s fine; there are many, many examples of this in society. Good video BTW. 👍

  44. The Inquisitor on May 9, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    Read more Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum novels whilst sitting in a tree stand or blind in the quiet of the forest than I can remember. A few candy bars in the pockets and a thermos of coffee…beats the hell out of the best day at work! Not all about "killing".

  45. Harry Callahan on May 9, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    “See what’s it’s like to take the life of an animal” sick fucker. Sorry l don’t condone this so I’m unsubscribing.

  46. FierceNation United on May 9, 2020 at 4:50 pm

    Here in Missouri we like to hunt for our deer meat as well, fresh . Mushrooms to.

  47. David Molinarolo on May 9, 2020 at 4:50 pm

    Back in the 90s, I worked a couple deer check stations during hunting season. A deer check station is where the hunters would bring in their tagged deer to have them recorded for the state. I live in Southern Illinois around the Shawnee National Forest and we got hunters from all over. One of things you do at the check station is check the teeth for age of the deer. You can tell by how much black film is one the teeth. The younger, the more black film. So one time we had this hunter from Chicago and he decided to pull a prank on us. He put a set of those fake plastic vampire teeth in the deer’s mouth, and when my buddy (who was working the station too) went to check the teeth, and saw those vampire teeth, he jumped back scared shitless. It was extremely hilarious. We all had a hellava laugh.

  48. UKbeats on May 9, 2020 at 4:51 pm

    Loved the Vlog guys America is amazing!! Hope you have lots of fun <3

  49. Daniel Seguin on May 9, 2020 at 4:52 pm

    Just subbed after watching this vid! Hope you enjoy your time here. Cheers!

  50. Tea and a Butty on May 9, 2020 at 4:54 pm

    We don’t agree with hunting for nothing more than "sport" but we understand if you’re going to eat it. We are hypocritical meat eaters who would never kill anything ourselves though.
