Dear hunters, please stop this. It looks disrespectful to the animal to non-hunters and doesn’t help anything. It’s just for the picture and you don’t look tough. We are all stewards of nature, not cavemen. I often wonder what will happed in 1000 years. Will hunting still be a thing? WIll people still be interested, will we be out of land and animals? I love to hunt but I have a responsibility to non-hunters and children. We as hunters are to show hunting in a positive light and respect the animal, not brag or boast. The deer or antelope can jump higher than you or run up a mountain faster than you. We are not stronger than them nor do we need to showcase squatting dead animals.
I recently unsubscribed from a Facebook hunting group called “208 Hunters” due to the graphic pictures. If a hunting magazine wouldn’t show it or Meat Eater, should we? Blood, heads, dead animals, guts and more. Look I know it exists, I know that but there is always some remorse for me when I take an animals life. I always feel bad, always. I eat meat though so whether it’s a steak from the grocery store or chicken nuggets from a fast-food restaurant, someone had to do that for me. Hunting keeps me connected to where my food comes from and what it means to me. – Forrest
