    Just watched the last episode, maybe I'm being nitpicky but I feel the guys should say 'harvested' versus 'killed' animals; out of respect.

    The truth is what needs to be told an animal was killed, not plucked out of the field like a crop.

    Not sure if you are baiting for a argument or just being silly or are serious.

    If you can't come to terms with killing a animal maybe video games would be a better fit.

    I'm done being PC with ANYONE, ANYMORE. It's healthier for me to say " you may not like this though...... "

    I only say "harvested" when I get a deer with the combine or haybine.

    We hit the gong in our hunter education instructor certification classes when someone uses the words, weapon or kill. I never use "weapon" to describe what I use for hunting or shooting. Both words have a negative connotation to those outside the hunting community and in this time of anti-gun/anti-hunting attitudes. Read a statement from an anti-hunting person- "We read where you love to kill." Where? Never read that anywhere in the last 64 years. We can deal with the original terms as used for generations but nowadays, we don't need to alienate those who are neutral on hunting. We need all the help we can get.

    Well I've invited more than a few to visit a slaughter house or a live stock auction. I then offer pics of both on my phone. Just a perspective as to where their neatly wrapped grocery meat comes from.

    I will not ever censor what I say to appease others when I am stating a truth. Hit a gong, just stop.

    When I hunt I kill the animal I don't pick it off a tree like a ripe apple. There is blood and guts involved!

    To much PC in the world now days. Not enough reality.. it is what it is... Killing! A DEAD animal killed by meat eat human... Only hunters actually do the killing themselves versus the slaughter house....

    Wonder how many folks look at a package of steak in the meat section of the grocery store and say I wonder who harvested that?

    I would have zero issue with a hunter safety instructor giving a presentation about being a good ambassador of hunting, I do have an issue with a gong and deeming some words inadmissible that is politically correct censure BS.

    I for one look at it and ask , " I wonder if this is the one they had to drag down the shoot. " I've been to one too many live stock auctions and I have heard way more than I should from older farmers, " yep there goes a Mickey D burger! " eeggads!

    More people need to make videos the way they should be. I have no problem with saying killed.

    The Breaking Point for example doesn’t hide any part of their hunting culture. Drinking for example.

    We need not apologize for our culture. When i post hunting related media i sure don’t.
