    In all honesty, I’d have to agree.
    I support all hunters and judge none but that’s just not for me.

    I think it makes hunters look like we are just in it for the kill.

    Then that is an ignorance problem of the person who thinks that. It's not solved by proud hunter refraining from posting pictures.

    Certainly, people can view a picture of a hunter with a dead whitetail and think the same thing.

    Because it's her choice. No problem with that. No blood and guts.

    IMO what needs to stop are hunters putting other hunters down.As long as what they are doing is legal. If you don't like it don't do it. Doesn't mean others can't or shouldn't.

    Standing there like a spoiled brat little rich kid who traveled 10, 000 miles to kill something that big and then drape it around your neck like it is a costume makes me sick.

    Then don't do it, Taking a shot at her isn't going to make it stop. It may be distasteful to you but she isn't doing anything wrong. And we all need to stand together against the antis. If we let things get banned because it doesn't affect us. When the antis get to what we like to do, why should the people that got hung out to dry previously help?

    Sounds like someone may be a little jealous. This is what Social Media has done to hunting & the Country for that matter. What is the difference in this young lady showing off her accomplishments & a high paid athelete showing off a trophy. The new generation of hunters isn't looking good.

    This IS the new generation of hunter. She did this to get a reaction out of people on Facebook or wherever so she can turn around and say look how these people are treating me. If someone is going to post a pic like this they have to be able to take what's coming. Minus like death threats or whatever.

    Which is the reason we should support each other. They hate us all. Doesn't matter what we do, nothing will change that.

    Exactly.

    You can be a chest pumping proud hunter all you want, but many anti hunting people will find this offensive, and add fuel to the fire.

    I’m not going to support someone who drapes their kill over their shoulder. Bad taste.

    So do we hide? I think not. Pic of a deer, hog, turkey,elk etc doesn't matter to them. As long as hunters are perusing their interests legally I say enjoy. I have no interest in going on safari but if that makes you happy I say go for it.

    Then we will be as responsible for the demise of hunting as much as the antis.
