    AMERICA'S HUNTERS
    Pretty Amazing!
    The world's largest army... America's hunters!

    I had never thought about this...

    A blogger
    added up the deer license sales
    in just a
    handful of states and
    arrived at a striking conclusion:

    There were over 600,000 hunters
    this season in the state of Wisconsin.
    Allow me to restate that number:
    Over the last
    several months,
    Wisconsin's hunters
    became the eighth largest army in
    the world.
    More men under arms than in Iran.
    More than France and Germany combined.
    These men
    deployed to
    the woods of a single American state,
    Wisconsin,
    to hunt with firearms, and
    no one was killed.
    That number pales in comparison to the 750,000
    who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and
    Michigan's 700,000 hunters,
    all of whom
    have now returned home safely.

    Toss in a quarter million hunters
    in West Virginia
    and it literally establishes the fact
    that the
    hunters of those four states alone would
    comprise the largest army in the world.
    And then add
    in the total number of hunters in the other
    46 states.
    It's millions more.
    The point?
    America will forever be safe
    from foreign invasion with that kind of
    home-grown firepower.
    Hunting...

    You idiots are safe because of Bhooma devi was generous in giving you Atlantic, Pacific on either sides and bestowed with Canada on the top side. :D

    Hmm...think about India with a failed terrorist state Pakistan on her NW side, an Islamic Bangladesh bursting at its seams and sending millions of illegals into our NE states and a increasingly powerful China to the North. You guys have an easy time in USA... :)

    haha..they are lucky indeed...
    Sometimes I think how it would have been if during partition British had sent all Pakistanese to where Israel today and all Jews where Pakistan is today.Anyways that's what Pakistanese always keep claiming that they are Arabs..probably they would have been happier there and India would have definitely been happier to have Israelese as neighbours...May be in a parallel universe things are like the way I am dreaming...haha..

    There is a difference being a deer hunter and army.Put a gun in the hands of anyone and he can shoot a defenseless deer anyday.

    US is lucky enough not to be in the middle-east or else US would not be so "safe" as this article says.Just think about sharing border with Iraq/Iran/Pakistan.You would see a completely different scenario.

    Not really the right to way to look at it. I know these hunters cannot be compared to well trained soldiers of an invading army but these hunters would still give a decent fight especially considering the large number, 600,000! compared to ordinary people in other countries who have zero experience in handling weapons...



    I agree!

    Remember there are 26 million military veterans in the USA, many of them hunters. Isoroku Yamamoto whom led the attack on Pearl Harbor once said. You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass. I was hunting in the woods by myself with my own gun by the time I was 9 years old, most americans grow up with guns. More then 8 million americans legally carry concealed weapons......Concealed carry in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    He said no such thing

    Think about it this way, if the Japanese had managed to destroy your navy, a good portion of your airforce, army and the coastal defense and then managed to land on your shores, then hunters with guns wouldn't be a big problem. US is invincible today because of your military technology not because of your hunters.

    there is difference between well trained and experienced armed soldier and unfit part time turkey hunter.

    hunters may be... can put up little resistance but they will eventually be mowed down.

    Whether 80 million armed American civilians will prove to be a formidable foe, will be known only if there is a full scale land invasion of the US by a large army. I hope this never happens; but looking at the Arab Spring, I thing 80 million American civilians will indeed prove to be a formidable force.

    That was not unusual in the mountains where I grew up. I never even heard of a family that did not have guns and most hunted an fished to supplment their food supply. The FBI estimates that there are over 200 million privately-owned firearms in the USA, and i doubt if americans would line up to be mowed down. As a matter of fact I expect american hunters would have more experience in woodcraft then the average soldier. I have seen my brother shoot a crow out of the sky at a 1000 yards. In the mountains where he lives you would never find him and you would never see him. My first gun was a 410 gage shot gun for my 8th birthday.

    Oh please, stop day dreaming. It is true that most of you possess guns and the Constitution guarantees that right to you, and for that USA will always have my respect.
    However, hunters can only last as long as the partisans did in the Soviet Union. Sure, they can do ambush and little objectives here and there, but war is not there business, and invaders are no deer. When hunting deer, you do not run the risk of becoming the hunted instead. Which is a very real threat when you hunt for humans. In any case, anyone invading USA would bring a great cache of firearms to weed out the locals. At best, the hunters would provide a resistance of a few hours, maybe days, but beyond that, they will be crushed.
    You yanks should stop believing those hollywood movies. It doesn't happen like that in real life.
