And hunters made the most of it. I haven't found more examples, but I think it's pretty great.

Hunters Respond to PETA's Anti-Hunting Campaign
created: 8/24/2017 7:45 PM in NEWS
PETA recently introduced an anti-hunting Facebook filter allowing users to update their profile pic with a custom filter to promote their "Shoot Selfies, Not Animals" campaign. Hunters across this country and around the world decided they could do both.

Is this a hilarious trolling of PETA which is known to euthanize animals on a regular basis by hunters who kill animals for both sustenance and herd control? Is it something else? Time will tell, but for now we are keeping our senses of humor intact and waiting to see what happens next. I didn't have to look any further than my personal network to find the following examples of this trend.

Stephen Elliott from Stephen Elliott Outdoors

Stephen Elliott, of Elliott Outdoors, along with many other Armslist users, had something to say about it:

"The ENTIRE community of hunters grabbed ahold of this it seemed as a stand against PETA. Just in my circle of friends alone, I can't tell you how many death threats we receive, people saying they will kill our dogs, call women names that they should never even hear, and some people even go as far as to wish our unborn children are still born. It's pretty disgusting and horrific. It was great to see everyone come together on this. Of course it's funny, but to me it represented much more than just a good laugh. This was us standing up, saying were sick of being labeled and threatened by these people. Lately it seems like we as outdoorsmen and women spend most of our time arguing about who's the better hunter, fisherman, who's bucks are bigger, etc. It was nice to unite on this, because at the end of the day, we all share the same common lifestyle, understanding of conservation, and a deep respect for wildlife, nature, clean food, family, god, and the great outdoors. We really are like one big family."

Lacey Mathews, a southwest PA girl, grew up hunting and shooting with her dad.

"My passion for shoothing and hunting is all thanks to my dad, Herschel. Every chance we had we were in the woods, he taught me that hunting is a way of life and it is how we supported our families."

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?

Do you still have the set of gaiters you talked about on the site? Gerry

Mtn_Infantry,
That's a monster buck you have in your avatar! Very Nice! Anyway, my brother in law and myself are planning to do some fishing while in Port Aransas. I think he/we are planning on taking a boat charter out a couple of days. He's a serious fisherman and I am not. Any suggestions?
Thanks!
Mark Griffin
