Have hunted on the East Coast USA all my life
It is very much the fact that many people no longer understand how nature works.
I saw an excellent example of this just a few weeks ago in a park when a hawk swooped down and grabbed a squirrel on the ground. While the hawk was dispatching the squirrel a man and woman ran up screaming at it, and the hawk flew off. Now there is a dead sqirrel laying in the park and a woman upset telling her husband she wants to leave before their kid sees it. I bit my tounge as they left however when I got home and told my wife the story she couldn't belive I didnt "give them an education".
Now I am 28 years old and was taught growing up there is a give and take relationship with nature. But I do see many of my peers that either were not taught this way or have forgotten it. I consider myself both a meat and trophy hunter, and cannot understand this "meat comes from the grocery store" concept.

It's not even funny anymore, you post any hunting pictures on facebook anymore and the anti's and even non-hunters jump on it like it's match thrown on straw pile. They will go on and on about how they support meat hunters but us "sport" hunters need to become extinct. And then there are geniuses that come out and say hunting was once needed to put food on the table, but that is what we have supermarkets for now. A lot of them are there 20's.....this world is going to hell.

Luckily, I am too old and grouchy to be on Facebook.

:LOL:

Since there is a grocery store now, if you hunt, that means you enjoy killing things. Their logic is since there is a store, there is no need to kill for food.:LOL:
And any one that posses with dead animals is sick, any one that collects anything but meat from a animal is a sicko too.:rolleyes:

This world is going to hell, I better stay health because I can't rely on these wackos to keep me safe when I get old.:mad:

Maybe these people should have to go to a hog or chicken farm and processing plant before they are allowed to have an opinion.

I think it should be mandatory teaching for people at age 18.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?
