Default HELP: 15 page paper, college english

Hey Guys!
I'm fairly new here, so for you those who don't know me, I'm Kyle. I'm 18, and a senior at a small school in East Central, Minnesota. The reason for this post is to ask for your help. I'm currently taking a college English class (after all, i DO want to be an outdoor writer) and we have just been assigned a 15[:'(] page paper on the topic of our choice. It is an argument/persuasion paper. If any of you have topic suggestions involving hunting, or outdoors in anyway let me know. Thanks in advance for your help. -Kyle

Current topic ideas
1. PETA (or antis) VS. Hunters
2. Crossbow Hunting VS. Vertical Bowhunting (I KNOW TOUCHY!)

and thats about it so far, sorry so lengthy...thanks again guys!

id say go with the pro/cons for hunting. there wouldn't be a problem getting plenty of resources to back both arguements and it's something that interests you.

good luck

I'd gauge the professor's thoughts on this first. I know the is America and we do have the right to say what we want. However, I wrote a paper in a college law class about gun control and howmost crimes are commited with illegal firearmsand the guy hammered me.Nowhere did I say that I was pro gun and you wouldn't get the idea if you read it. I made sure all of my sources were credible. Unfortunetly, this guy was big time gun control and dismissed all ofsited work that showed that most guns used in crimes are illegally being purchased and that many of the guns are coming in from foreign countries on the black market. And this was in rural PA where most of the people hunt or own a firearm.

If the prof is anti-gun/ anti-hunteryou may be walking into a trap. Plus, even though it is a great thing to write about it is not original and professors like when you provide a new topic.
