I Do Not Want To Be Associated With Guns, Hunting and shooting

    I just Googled something and I come up as writing the latest under Hunting and Shooting. I am TOTALLY AGAINST GUNS. Now  why can we NOT SEPARATE HUNTING From  FISHING? I am very upset with this. I do not like to be linked with guns, killing animals, shooting things. Guns are made to kill with. It is against all I believe in.

      I guess I'm missing something because fishing is really no different than hunting. A fishing pole was designed to kill too.

      Personally, I enjoy both hunting and fishing.

      I am not sure when the change was made, but it appears that we did split up hunting and fishing into separate categories. I suspect that you categorized your hubs before this change was made, so unfortunately, a bunch of your hubs are still in "Sports & Recreation -> Hunting & Shooting." You can change this by going to http://hubpages.com/my/categories and reassigning those hubs to "Sports & Recreation -> Fishing." I hope this solves the problem.

    So, when you go fishing... you're not killing fish?  I kinda got the impression from your Hubs that you are... Do you kill the fish by letting them suffocate or do you beat them to death?

    On a more productive front, HubPages can only change stuff here, not on Google.  The categories here for hunting and fishing are separate, so you might want to take another look at your tags and content to see if you can better communicate to Google how your Hub should be considered.

      Sure sounds like killing to me.  Surely fishing is hunting, hunting for fish, no?

    Completely agree... Fishing is a way of hunting too..
    Though i dont think search engines results will label you being associated with those.  Dont worry. smile

    As of now. People dont google for a person's Qualities and likings and dislikes ...lol http://i41.tinypic.com/adgbbn.jpg

    I both hunt and fish....I guess I havent figured out the difference of someone else doing the harvesting for me (ie the grocery store). And just for the record fish die too...
    Have a Great Day

    I guess this is a cultural association, because guns don't spring to mind at all for me when the word "hunting" comes up, I think horses, foxes, and dogs.

      Bravo, LG, for the reminder that there are still parts of the world where the hunt is the sport, not the killing!  But then I've always considered Brits more civilized than other cultures.

        More civilized to hunt animals for sport rather than food, to chase them around on horse back and turn a pack of hounds loose on them to tear them into little pieces.  Civilized, really?

          Not the biggest fan of fox-hunting. The pursuit of blithering idiots - such as Prince Charles mad

        Oh no deary - there is always a kill. But only to brush a young man's face with the blood from a dead fox's tail. Very civilized don't you know. 40 hounds will invariably kill one fox. Sport. big_smile

        We kill for fun, not food.

    Speaking of plants, how come nobody ever feels sorry for THEM?
