We've all seen the reality shows—ghost hunters, chasing shadows in dark buildings, trying to find out what, exactly, made that strange noise. Coming from a family of hunters, I find this whole concept of ghost hunting extremely unfair. A ghost, of course, has an extreme advantage while on a hunting excursion.
First of all, ghosts hover and glide instead of walking like mere mortals. They don't have to worry about a deer or moose hearing them try to sneak up on them. Plus, they can hang out pretty much wherever they want, so there's no reason to build cumbersome deer stands that could potentially be spotted by a clever deer at any time. Honestly, I don't know why ghosts even bother hunting, because it doesn't sound like much of a challenge for them.
The only potential problem a ghost might have while on a hunting trip would be if the sheet they're wearing needs a good washing. Lord knows, many a hunt has been ruined by a moose getting a good whiff of moldy sheet when a ghost happens to be upwind of their prey. If I were a ghost, I'd probably hunt naked. But that's a whole different blog entry.
Personally, I think a ghost would have a better career using their hunting skills in a nice sniper or hitman position. They could float into the target's room, get a shot off, and disappear in a cloud of vapor before the cops arrive on the scene. Plus, even if they mess up and leave the weapon behind, they have nothing to worry about—ghosts don't have fingerprints.
To me, there's no excitement in watching ghost hunter shows. Give me an episode of Casper the Bounty Hunter any day.
