We need to stand strong against these attacks. PETA twist facts and we need to stand up to these attacks.
Hunting for our youth gives them skills and helps them be better stuwards of the land and animals they harvest. The more time they have in the field makes them safer hunters. They not only learn how to shot thier weapon of choice, but they learn how to get from point A to point B.
Hunting allowed me to travel with confidence. I've been able to harvest big game in several states in different terrains. Each trip has tought me something and has made me a better person as well as a better hunter.
Young hunters need to learn the edicute that come with hunting. Hunting can be done solo, but for many of us it's a social event. We learn what is legal, and then we learn what is acceptable by each group we hunt with. We learn to allow others a chance at game and learn to tell those wild tales that one only tell fellow hunters.
We've leaned that getting kids started young in sports like football, basket ball, and even swimming makes them better athiletes. The same is true for young people who enjoy hunting. The more they experence it the better they become. They learn leasons for mistakes they make, like not watching the wind, to understanding how to read an amimals behavior. These leasons have to be learned in the feild.
Hunting is and has been a possitive thing for generations. We not only help control animal numbers, we help put food on the table. We have stepped out of the spectators of life and have become part of nature. We're no longer on the bench, we're on the field living life.
PETA is one of those organizations that is focused on the negative and the unnatural. Hunters are possitive enjoying early mornings and being part of the cycle of life, which is natural. PETA is a packaged way of life, while hunting allows us to step out of the confinds of society and be part of the process of putting food on the table. PETA is irrational with its beliefs, while hunters relize that it is rational to persue game and learn about animals in their natural state, then how to turn that animal into something to consume.
Hunters don't turn tragedies into political pressure....
