    Ive noticed that women and children seem to draw more attention when it comes to these type things. I think Cecil is the outlier because he had a name but the majority of the worst hate and death threats I’ve seen are to women. I wonder why? I get very little hate on any social media platform but I’m a 6’4 dude with a beard and long hair not a pretty lady. I think it upsets them more that women do it because they feel women should side with them because they think of hunters as the old fat white dudes. They can’t fathom a woman or child hunting, I don’t know really. I have plans for a giraffe and zebra in a couple weeks I’m sure I’ll post it to my website and Facebook. I’ll let you guys know how it goes.

    I think you're spot on. The last thing the antis want is for hunting to be OK with women or the younger generation so they shout it down louder. A huntress sends a really strong message to other women and might just get more to try it.

    It's a standard liberal way of handling in of their "protected" class of guaranteed supporters. Just look at how loud liberals scream about and now badly they try to disgrace any black conservative. They will do whatever they can to bring that person back in line.

    I agree. They also have a preconceived notion of what a hunter is and when they encounter something outside that, their anger grows even stronger because they don't want to have confront their own assumptions about the group they hate.

    I will be taking my daughter to Africa next year and certainly don't want her putting up photos of iconic animals online. There isn't too much outrage if you shoot a pig or warthog, but if she wants to see how ugly the online world can be, a dead zebra can show her very quickly.

    Mr. Poindexter you are spot on. Teenage girls and attractive ladies can be guaranteed to receive immediate negative attention- especially if they shoot a PCC (pretty, cute, cuddly) animal. Big whitetails, lions, and elephants also seem to trigger the uninformed masses negative emotional reactions quite easily. Go figure....

    I wonder what the reaction would be to a picture of one tracker and the giraffe? Respectably taken no blood and guts, and no explanation of the pic. Would people still be “outraged” or would they assume that the tracker wouldn’t read the comments and not bother trying to piss one off?

    They would not even repost it or comment because it won't fit their narrative of fat rich lazy white guys with small dicks. They attack women and kids extra hard because they are supposed to be part of their "base" of supporters and how dare one from that demographic be hunting. But a black man, they are unlikely to attack for fear of looking like a racist (even though some of them think genocide of Africans is a solution based on posts I often see).

    You are absolutely right there. If an "indigenous person" be it an "indigenous black African", "first nations", etc... person is hunting or pictured with an animal they killed-not a word from the masses. I would even go as far as to say that the vast majority of people support it- because these people are seen as preserving their traditions when they hunt etc... It is only the most extreme of the extreme animal rights nuts that would blanket be opposed to it.

    Yes, but even those extremely opposed will not likely spread it because they do not want to tip their hand that they are unreasonable zealots. Most want to pretend that they are simply wanting to eliminate this one single hunting thing (until they get that and then it is on to the next restriction they want to place until finally we cannot even swat a damn fly).

    Well you see Facebook is for "Look I have a new car" Snapchat is for "Lookee what I'm having for supper" and Twitter is for "wanna see my dirty skivvies" so they all have a use! :Pompus:
