Default How can people be SO ignorant??!!

I found this posted underneath the poll for "Hunting in Solon". It amazes me how people can be so one-sided, and straight ignorant to us hunters. Please read the quote from this guy, and watch the two videos that Christian Raymond included. This stuff ticks me off, beyond belief.

This is what they will be using, a crossbow and look at the danger of it.

You think it wont happen to your child, you pets as you walk in the parks and forest. Look at this women and the lie of the bowhunters though he was only practicing he said he "did not know there were other homes around him" . Yeah right. ! One thing sports hunters are great at doing is lying. Just 2 months ago this elderly women was shot in the face with an practice arrow and her grandchild sitting by her. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyjZ3JQP8fM What if it was the grandchild that got hit in the heart, lung, liver ? And there was no broadheads on the arrow yet but soon there will be and the distance is not going to be much of a difference. In NJ they just started lowering the buffer zone to 50 yards from houses to where they kill. In crossbows they also love to stalk as if they are going after "dangerous" villains when it's only bambies. How about if your child suddenly was mistaken for a deer? These people had such strong intent to kill , they will be on buck fever and something move, "BLAM" right to your childs heart or lung. Then guess what else. Many of these hunters get away with the murder because it was an "accident". DNR (Division of Natural Resources) are all run by hunters and nothing more then a hunting club.

You should realize that Peta and groups like it put out "action alerts" to all their members to spam polls like this. They will send an email to all their members with the link then it's an all out attack of misinformation and spamming.

This is just a normal PETA anti hunting propaganda piece. But there is a kernel of truth in it and that is that far to many people do not take into account what is behind their target. I have witness people shooting in the direction of homes and at skylined deer with no worry about what is behind it.

i cant believe it. On multiple accounts (since i hunt in urban areas, all legal though) people ask me, what if my kid or dog walked in the woods and you shot it?
it gets me so frustrated because no hunter even raises his bow on something unless hes planning to shoot and it is the quarry he is chasing! They get this impression that all hunters are stupid hill billies, the truth is most hunters are probably smarter than them!

That is the exact statement that fired me up the most....."WHAT IF" this, "WHAT IF" that. "WHAT IF" can be applied to just about anything that happens in life.

Unfortunately, its the "what ifs" that are running this country right now. Even more sad, is they are allowed to procreate repeatedly, spreading their ignorance and ill informed bias's towards life and its many challenges.
