Huh? This is like saying the same people who eat tacos with meat in them could easily pay an assasin to kill somebody. Just because they didnt kill the animal themselves dont mean that they as a consumer, didnt contribute to the death of an animal.No excuses. People that shot down a small bird could easily shot down a small girl.. It is the thirst for blood which is disgusting for many of us.
Apparently, you bite them between the eyes, crushing their brain and when the flesh turns white, it's dead. Or so I'm told.Tell you the truth, I haven't caught an octopus for the last 5 years or so, ever since I read that they are indeed intelligent creatures.
I used to use a speargun, although they can be caught by the hand also, as long as they are not particularly big or tucked in their holes.
The method you mention, I never heard of before, although I think it's referring to their stomach; that is what the round thing is, it is not their head.
Perhaps. The problem is that is disgunting to see people who enjoy killing animals, and even call it a sport. When are we going to have a peaceful world when people still glorify killing?Huh?

I think divers tend to travel a bit further offshore (the longest outward passage I've had to a single dive-site was 8 hours, out to the Skerryvore rock past Tiree, to dive the wreck of the Labrador) which means we pay more. OTH we can be lots more trouble than anglers, especially if there's an incident like someone getting bent.I'm quite surprised at the number of people who go diving these days. It's become a very popular sport, here on the east coast.
In fact, we anglers are finding it more and more difficult to hire boats.
Most skippers prefer divers to anglers coz they pay more and they leave the boat much cleaner. (no fish guts lying everwhere)
I wish I'd taken the sport up when I was younger. It looks great fun.
I thought you turned octopus inside out to kill them? We don't see many round here and since they're smarter than the average dog or cat we tend to leave them alone.Same here. Exploring underwater is so exciting.
Ambushing fishes, or finding them hiding in crevices and under rocks is my kind of hunting.
Octopuses is a relatively easy catch - and quite delicious too.
Are you scuba-diving or free-diving?
How is the sea up there in England?
I always thought it would be cold and rather murky, compared to the Mediterranean at least.
I dont use an automatic rifle to hunt with. That is silly. An automatic rifle is not a good hunting weapon. I shoot one bullet at a time with a bolt action rifle, just like was common 100 years ago. (Look at my avatar).Perhaps. The problem is that is disgunting to see people who enjoy killing animals, and even call it a sport. When are we going to have a peaceful world when people still glorify killing?
Even more, those people usually use the term "sport" for those activities. What chance has the poor animal to survive?
If you want to kill animals, better try bullfighting. At least the killers there are couragious, and not just carry an automathic rifle with a telescope on top-
