California Senator Debra Bowen, known for her tough stance against spam, is now taking a shot (no pun intended) at what she sees as another Internet scourge: real-time remote Internet hunting of live game.

While some consider the Senator’s stand on the remote “sport” to be emotional and anti-gun, Internet hunting is in the cross-hairs of at least fourteen other states, and House Republican Tom Davis has introduced a national bill which would ban the practice in the United States.


Remote Internet hunting of live game first entered the public conscience when sites such as Live-Shot.com hit the scene. At Live-Shot.com one can order up a live speciman of a species of ones choice, and remotely control a firearm to “hunt” the game.

Species which one can order up through Live-Shot.com include Barbary Sheep, Blackbuck Antelope, and wild boars. Says the site, “Other antlered species like Whitetail, axis, fallow, and red stag will be available on a limited basis. If you are interested in one of these or possibly another species not listed, contact us and we’ll be glad to assist you in providing the chance at the trophy of your dreams.”

We’re thinking that a trophy of a wild remote Internet hunting website purveyor would look mighty nice hanging over our mantel.

  1. How did this country, the land of the free and the beacon of individual rights, manage to raise so many deplorable busybodies in just two generations? And why are the rest of us listening to them? It’s not enough to politely disagree. They have to be ridiculed, yelled at, made fun of, insulted, put down, and put out until they realize the more they complain, the MORE abuse they will receive.

  2. A man from Houston, Texas spent $10,000 on a platform that holds a .22 caliber rim-shot rifle that allows internet users to hunt animals on his 330-acre ranch.Live-shot.com already lets internet users target practice with a .22 and tin cans. John Underwood purchased and bred live deer, antelope and wild pigs as targets. The first paid hunt will occur on April 9, and many states are attempting to outlaw it already, including Texas. You have to have a Texas hunting license, pay a one-thousand dollar animal deposit fee, and pay a fifteen dollar monthly fee. For an additional charge, you can have the meat and head sent to you. The final cost depends on the species and size of the animal killed and the cost of having the trophy mounted.In my opinion internet hunting is okay. This doesn’t kill more animals; people can still only kill the same amount. You still have to wait, and look for the right animal that you have a license to kill. It’s definitely not the government’s job to outlaw this. This doesn’t hinder anybody’s life, liberty, property, or pursuit of happiness. John Underwood says he designed it mainly for those who love hunting but are unable to get out into the woods such as the wheelchair-bound. The first person to sign up was Dale Hagberg, a paraplegic from Ligonier, Indiana. Mr. Hagberg says he broke his neck in an accident almost 18 years ago and has only been able to watch hunting on TV. He loved hunting more than anything. “I was an avid hunter before I became hurt, and I’ve missed it ever since,” he says through his nurse. Hagberg is excited – and nervous – about his coming April 9 hunt. “I’m sure when I see the animal walk in my view, my heart will start beating as fast as it used to.” Many people say it’s terrible and it’s “the stupidest thing they’ve ever even heard of.â€? people complain that it’s not real hunting and it totally ruins the sport. This doesn’t mean it has to be outlawed. They have the right to complain, and that’s okay. If they don’t agree, then fine, they don’t have to like it, but their attitudes shouldn’t prevent others from doing something they enjoy that doesn’t hinder others in life, liberty or pursuit of happiness in any way.
