Well if there is one one thing that really pisses me off, it’s animal rights activists who blindly lash out at hunters for being “murderers” and demonize hunters for killing “Bambi.” A recent example of this kind of irrational hatred towards hunting just really got me boiling. Here is an excerpt from the LA Times.
A bow-hunter who thought he was doing everything by the book instead went home empty-handed, reports the Connecticut Post. After mortally wounding a deer, he tracked it — as responsible hunters should — until it collapsed and died. Realizing the animal had ended up on someone’s private property, he went to the door to ask permission to retrieve the buck.
“My husband told him to just go away, he couldn’t have the deer,” homeowner Lynn Gorfinkle said.
Gorfinkle went out into her yard and took photos of the deer. “It was a crime scene, in my opinion, the minute that it was shot,” she said.
Turns out, Gorfinkle is the CEO of Animal Rights Alliance in Redding, Conn.
Unbelievable. A crime scene? What’s a crime is that this deer will now be left to waste, instead of being used to feed a family. If you don’t like hunting, thats fine. No body is forcing that on you, but one thing I won’t tolerate is the constant efforts by PETA and other org’s that try to wipe hunting off the map.
We as hunters need to band together and remember that we need to constantly stand up for our rights to hunt. I’ll tell you one thing, I will never let my rights as a hunter be taken away. Never.
What do you guys think about this? Anyone else get pissed when they hear about this kind of thing?
