Wow Jerome, this is a tough subject and one that I’m certainly sensitive to. Personally speaking I don’t like any photo of a hunter sitting or standing atop of the harvested animal. It just doesn’t feel “right” to me. We as hunters are and must be bound to capturing images that are tasteful to both hunter and non-hunter alike. We are the stewards of our passion, love and respect of the outdoor life-style and animals that we pursue. Great attention should be given to memorialize the adventure, the hunting spirit and at time’s defeat in the pursuit of game and snapping bloody or mounted pictures is not appealing to many. Several years ago I was fortunate to have hunted and kill a beautiful lioness and we took great pains to clean the Queen of all the blood and built a small earth shelf to gracefully elevate the head for picture taking. After numerous pictures and position changes the PH asked me to “mount” her in a disgusting manner and smile. Frankly, I refused and a significant argument ensued that to this day still upsets me at the thought… It’s our duty to promote the ethical pursuit, harvest, treatment and consumption of the game we seek and while it often ends in the killing of an animal the picture that ends up “telling the tale” and living on forever. By all means smile and be proud of the adventure and the success, but don’t glorify taking the life of a creature by failing to capture the moment in a tasteful way – you never know who may be looking or lurking from the shadows! As the saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Please be mindful of that and Safe Adventuring!
